Romantic Wedding with an Edge at Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn, NY
When I first met Brittany and Matt, they gushed how they wanted their upcoming wedding at Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn to feel romantic but fun. They chose the rustic space at 67 West Street because they were obsessed with the stunning views of the Manhattan skyline from the venue’s private terrace.
Sitting in a booth at New Yorkers’ beloved bar Weather Up in TriBeCa where Matt is the manager, we shared a few drinks and loads of laughs. They told me that they would be walking into the reception to the WWE song and they’d be serving mac+cheese, fried chicken, and more BBQ for dinner. Incredibly excited about their wedding, they wanted to keep it as *them* as possible.
When shooting their wedding, it was amazing how many laughs and happy tears filled the room. Brittany’s dad’s speech over dinner had everyone in stitches, and the orange sunset over the skyline had all the guests in awe during cocktail hour.
They chose Greenpoint Loft as their wedding location. Greenpoint Loft is the perfect wedding venue for couples wanting a unique space in Brooklyn where they can customize the space and make it their own with soaring views overlooking New York City. Needless to say, it did not disappoint.

All About Weddings at Greenpoint Loft
As a wedding photographer, we have years of experience shooting various locations and venues in Brooklyn and New York City (literally – we’ve photographed over 300 weddings!). When navigating the wedding planning process, it can be so difficult to figure out venues, vendors, logistics, and budgets. So we thought it would be helpful to give some information based on our experience photographing nearly a dozen weddings at Greenpoint Loft. So here’s all the details on Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn!
Greenpoint Loft is situated in the heart of Brooklyn, right on the edge of Williamsburg and Greenpoint located at 67 West Street. Surrounded by water towers and warehouse buildings, the venue overlooks the New York City skyline from its private terrace. The view from the rooftop can make you fall back in love with NYC all over again, amazed at its beauty. The venue is close enough to the city to be accessible to many hotels and landmarks, yet far enough away that it feels like another world.
The Best Things about Getting Married at Greenpoint Loft
The beauty of Greenpoint Loft is the flexibility of the raw space, giving you a limitless number of options for ceremony and reception setup so you can truly make your wedding your own. Whether you want to do a ceremony in the round, or with the loft windows and raw exposed brick as the backdrop, all these aspects are what make Greenpoint Loft so unique.
Getting married at this venue means having up to 180 of your closest family and friends by your side, stunning New York City views, and flexible design in the raw industrial loft space. You bring in a caterer of your choice, and can have either a buffet or sit-down dinner.
What’s also great about Greenpoint Loft is that it’s perfectly located. On a secluded street away from the hustle and bustle of Williamsburg but still only a stone’s throw away from Manhattan by cab.
And for a little on the history, the area of Greenpoint is a pretty rad place to explore. It’s a mixture of old New York with the modern feel of Brooklyn, with a food scene that attracts tourists year-round. Think lots of redesigned warehouse spaces overlooking the water, local shops and businesses, and new designs. Greenpoint Loft itself is actually a pre-WWII rope factory!
