10 Amazing Modern Wedding Venues on the East Coast
While the East Coast is often recognized for its historic sights and buildings, these modern wedding venues bring a whole new sense of flair.
Hotel Commonwealth – Massachusetts
Experience the infamous sights and sounds of Boston right outside (and within) this ultra-luxe hotel. From its elegant Esplanade Room to the Fenway Terrace, an outdoor space overlooking the home of the Red Sox, this place combines the best of the city’s history with modern luxury. To experience a little more local flair, book one of its themed Signature Suites.
Ink48 – New York
A boutique NYC hotel, this is the perfect spot for those who enjoy the trendy shops and style of Manhattan. Despite its city surroundings, it has a more serene feel with unobstructed views of the skyline, waterfront and starry night skies. The venue features more intimate ceremony and reception spaces, including the two-story Heaven Over Hell Penthouse Suite.
LOFT29 – New York
In the heart of the Chelsea art district in New York City lies this chic loft. Often used for filming and photo shoots, the space radiates minimalism with its barren brick walls and all-white scheme. While it’s not your traditional event center, its textures and custom designed furniture give it a contemporary vibe. Think of it as a blank canvas to fit whatever your wedding style may be.
The Foundry – New York
Raw and industrial, this restored 19th-century building has a lot of character. Among six spaces to choose from, the main space boasts a skylit ceiling, bare brick walls and tall beams. The terrace, greenhouse and courtyard spaces include more eco-friendly elements like ivy-covered walls, plenty of natural light and a gorgeous view of the New York skyline.
Wanderland Popup – New Jersey
While camping along the Jersey Shore might seem a little out of place, this pop-up hotel brings a whole lot of style to the outdoors. Available in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the company brings a hint of Coachella to the East Coast with its luxurious lounge tents. For a more peaceful option close to the city, Wanderland on the Bay provides a glamping experience by a private beach in Highlands, NJ, only one hour away from Manhattan.
The Loft at 600 F – Washington, DC
A hidden gem in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter area, this loft has lots of chic décor, lounge space and modern technology. With rust-colored accents and large windows throughout, each floor serves as a cozy setting for a romantic ceremony or a contemporary cocktail hour.
Vidrio – North Carolina
Nestled in downtown Raleigh, this restaurant is equally quiet as it is bold. Set above the hustle and bustle of the dining room, it contains colorful spaces such as a unique mezzanine, a cozy library and modern lounge that reflect its vibrant Mediterranean style and menu.
No. 5 Faber – South Carolina
Located in the French Quarter of Downtown Charleston, this renovated warehouse reflects a vintage-meets-contemporary style. The spacious lobby features a baby grand piano and a fully customizable marble bar area. Meanwhile, the mezzanine level’s exposed beams, skylights and high-backed round benches provide a more comfortable setting. If you want to plan your wedding from the ground up, the venue encourages couples to choose their vendors rather than providing a specific selection.
Boca Raton Resort & Club – Florida
You don’t have to travel across the world for the perks of an exotic island wedding. A Mediterranean-inspired village situated at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, this South Florida paradise feels like a world away. Out of its nine incredible venues, the Dunes Ballroom is perfect for a modern event, featuring striking chandeliers and ocean-inspired elements. Planning a Florida destination wedding? The resort also includes in-house services to coordinate your big day from start to finish.
Skydeck Miami – Florida
With a 360-degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami skyline, this rooftop wedding venue has unbeatable views. The inspiration for its modern design came from a yacht, characterized by sleek lines and a wave-like floor to resemble the ocean. Decorated with all-white lounge sofas, LED bar counters and a fully customizable lighting and sound system, the space combines sophistication with a lively nightclub vibe.
