New York Wedding Planner shares her favorite venues in Brooklyn

There is the new Brooklyn and the old Brooklyn and I love all in between! Funny thing is that a good 50% of our NYC based clients and NY area weddings are with couples that live in Brooklyn. In fact 9 out of 10 of the weddings we plan in Hudson Valley or further North are with couples that reside in Brooklyn. BK has many great options for event venues, classic with a modern charm, hip or blank slates to design to your fancy. Modern, clean and classic is what many look for in a venue, kind of like new home shopping. Classic with old school features most want to steer away from; we love our grandmothers but don’t want to have the same wedding.

Below are some great BK venues to consider for any event; wedding, engagement party, Anniversary, etc.
