I’m getting ready to book my wedding at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for next June. Any other Angel O brides out there? I’m feeling so nervous about all the bad press they are getting. It’s my dream venue and I can’t imagine getting married anywhere else…but it feels like a gamble! They are set to re-open Oct 1. I’d love some feedback!!

I’m not getting married there but I’ve shot scenes from a film there and it’s spectacular.

Shadowcat and all other NYC brides beware! I was supposed to get married there this past August 31st. Maria is a liar and horrific to deal with. When we first looked at the venue she stood up my parents and I twice when we had confirmed appointments for her to walk us through the venue (while Al knows the history of the venue, he had a lot of inaccurate information about doing a wedding there). I should have taken that as a sign to go elsewhere but like you it was my dream venue and put down a deposit anyway. We found out on Twitter that the venue was shut down. She never reached out and ignored all my emails asking for the status of the venue for our wedding.
Maria won’t refund my money even though we won the small claims court decision (which they of course did not show up to). Because their insurance won’t pay for repairs, they are using deposits from brides who aren’t even getting married at AO anymore to pay for their irresponsible behavior. The management there is untrustworthy but I imagine they will be on better behavior because they will be using your money to pay for repairs. I ended up getting married at Capitale whode management was a dream to deal with. Good luck!
