I want to reiterate how grateful we are that you guys are going to be running our wedding. Hunter and I were just talking about our big day and really feel we couldn’t have found more amazing people to get it done for us. So thank you for all of the hard work you’ve already done for us, and all that you’re going to do on our most special day. We love you guys!!! 💕

Hi All, Just wanted to say thanks so much for pulling off such nice decor. Everything was beautiful and everyone said how nice the venue was. We appreciate so much that you put in the ribbon wall that I wanted and that you painted the phone booth back to white. The flowers you did around the photobooth came out beautiful. 😍 Dave Donata Emily Sharonda Sarah

We had our wedding day at Art Factory Studios on October 1, 2023. Art Factory was only the second place we viewed and it was absolutely perfect. The planning team was fantastic in helping us to plan the day, really quick to respond to queries, so accommodating to any requests we had, and gave us lots of advice on what would work best on the day. It really helped to make it all completely stress free.
The venue itself is beautiful, something a bit different, and not what you would expect walking in from the street. It was very clean, spacious, and had great light. The food was fantastic from the in house caterers with lots of choice on menus. We partied on the outside park deck until about 3AM! Overall, it was everything we wanted for our wedding day, superb venue and amazing team. Just perfect and would highly recommend.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Was greeted by Dave the second we stepped foot in the Art factory at 830am who helped us bring EVERYTHING to our room to get ready. Our rooms were fully decorated and set up with Donatas help by literally 10am. Everything was taken care of for us to enjoy our day. Our guests loved the entire experience and so did we! We got so many compliments on how the venue was unique and breath taking. The day went SOOO smoothly thanks to how Dave and Donata run the show. We cant thank them enough.

Q: What makes Art Factory Venues Extraordinary?
Q: What are the Gala spaces like at the Art Factory?
Q: What are the majestic spaces like at Art Factory?
Our grand venues are the most spacious you will see - great for all of your guests on the dance floor at once! High wood-beam ceilings, nineteenth century hardwood floors and grand historic windows serve as the magnificent canvas for your customized decor. Venues are quipped with modern heating and air conditioning systems, expanded inventory and props, new catering equipment, new and renovated bathrooms and more.
Q: Why is Art Factory more Affordable than other venues?
As part of every event package we provide and perform most of the functions, tasks, props and decor in-house that you'd ordinarily have to pay extra for, and we have cost-conscious options for the rest.
Our creative team provides bridal and groom suites, ceremony, cocktail and reception space, planning, tables, chairs, lighting, all decor and props (except fresh flowers), setup, cleanup, day-of coordinator and so much more. All for one flat fee with No extra charges. No taxes, gratuities, service fees, decor fees, planning fees . . .
Q: Is planning included?
Yes! Your Art Factory team plans your event like we plan a movie production - we customize your event and take the work out of it for you. You start by uploading your ideas and inspiration (Pinterest, etc) to our planning app and then meet with our team of creatives remotely and/or in person who turn your ideas into your bespoke wedding including theme or color schemes, floor plans, tablescapes, props, and timelines. This culminates in a final planning deck that is used to build-out your physical wedding space and guide our operations and day-of team.
How many hours?
You have the entire day - 24 hours! This isn't a 5-hour venue that turns on the lights and wraps the party at 11:00 PM! That's when things really get going!
Arrive to settle into your bridal and groom suites as early as 5 AM if you wish, and have your after party go until the sun comes up the next day!
Do I need to hire a florist, planner or coordinator?
Not at all. Matter of fact, we advise against it. Why?
Flowers: They are expensive and are going to die the next day. Let our team use combinations of our faux flowers and greens along with our props and candles to deliver your exceptional decor at no extra fee.
Planner/Coordinator: Nobody knows our operation better than we. At 12 weddings per week we're the experts and we've got you!
Save your money for an amazing honeymoon!
What are we responsible for?
Our creative team provides bridal and groom suites, ceremony, cocktail and reception space, planning, tables, chairs, lighting, all decor and props (except fresh flowers), setup, cleanup, day-of coordinator and so much more.
You are responsible for food and beverage, photography and DJ/band. Most folks hire our recommended vendors that have performed many successful events here, but you can bring anyone you wish.
How does catering work?
One of the best features of the Art Factory program is Options! Each of our venues has a service kitchen equipped with ovens, sink, refrigeration and prep tables.
We suggest you take the time to meet with each of our five in-house caterers to discuss style, price and options over multiple free tastings (it's part of your Experience). Let them compete for your business! Then you can choose one of them, hire your own caterer, or even bring your own food and beverage.
With either option food, beverage and the service thereof as well as dinnerware, glassware, flatware and napkins is by you your caterer.
How do you handle alcohol?
Most of our guests bring their own alcohol or buy it and have it delivered and picked-up on consignment. We will store it in your own locked studio for up to a week in advance of your event, and you can pick them up for a week after if you wish to return the unopened bottles to the store for a refund. Your caterer will provide bartenders to serve as well as the mixers and ice. This saves you a fortune.
Can we talk numbers?
Of course! We include so much in our customized wedding package that you simply will not be able to beat the price, anywhere - not to mention the unrivaled vibe. Again, it all comes down to the Options we provide. If you are on a budget, weekdays from December thru February are least expensive with our sale prices ranging from $6,000 to $8,000 for everything we provide. Saturdays from March thru November are most expensive, still a tremendous bargain with our sale prices at $12,000 to $14,000. So your options are from $6,000 to $14,000 depending on the season and day of the week, and there are NO taxes or extra fees. That's all-in and flat. Add a caterer ranging from $80/person to $150/person depending on your style and menu plus $3,500-$7,000 for photography/videography. DJ's figure starting at $2,000.
Can we have our ceremony at the Art Factory?
Absolutely! Each of our venues have their own separate ceremony and cocktail areas. Our International and EpicPrime venues even allow for outdoor ceremonies. There is no extra charge!
Do you have outdoor areas?
Yes, our International and EpicPrime spaces have outdoor areas that you can use for ceremony, cocktails and after party!
Do you have parking?
We have parking on-site for wedding parties, ADA and those who need assistance. Our main parking lot is about a block and a half away at 14 Market Street, across from the Paterson Museum where your guests will board one of our old-fashioned trolleys that ferry them back and forth all day and night. Our trolleys are driven by off-duty Paterson police officers and firemen.
How about security?
Art Factory has 24/7 security even though we are on Interstate 80 in a predominantly non-residential historic factory district. Our trolleys are driven by off-duty Paterson police officers and firemen.
I understand that if I have my event at the Art Factory I am a member. What is membership?
Everyone who decides to have their event at the Art Factory becomes automatic members, similar to Soho House, with privileged 24/7 access. You may come and go as you please, use the grounds for photos, build in our wood and metal shops, or use a space for your engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or 30th birthday, free-of-charge! You become a part of our family!
Do you have multiple events at the same time?
Sometimes. Our event spaces are in different buildings on our huge 5-acre 21-building campus, so you can't hear or see one event from the next. You are in your own world here!.
What is the deposit?
50% down to hold your venue and the date!
