Try Hickory Street Annex.  I went and saw it a few years back for my SIL’s wedding.  It’s a restored Gulf Oil building and absolutely beautiful.  And while it’s right in the heart of Downtown Dallas, it’s not the most dangerous part of town. You could also hire security to kind of get that peace of mind.

Other lofty looking places that I found off the Knot include:

third space is going to be too small for you then. They can comfortably fit about 75 people at a seated dinner.

Studio 1019 would be your best bet. I would have had the wedding in the atrium (with the indoor grass and glass ceiling) and dinner in one studio and dancing in the other studio room. They are really a great venue. Lynn is a great person to work with (she use to work in NYC before moving down here).

Hope this helps. Good luck. Let me know if you need anymore help

Because Third Space was so CHEAP! I am a shoestring bride after all (read my blog!) heh. It was easily a grand less than 1019 and I didn’t have the people to fill up all that room. Third Space didn’t have a vendor preferred list which made things even cheaper for me. Third Space had the high ceilings I wanted. A lot of the other spaces aside from FIG (which is also very pricey) tended to feel warehousey not lofty. Make sense?

You might want to highly consider getting a wedding coordinator especially planning from so far away. Todd Events is the best if you can afford him. If you cannot Lara Whittington is my wedding coordinator and she is fabulous (and she works with tiny budgets too!).

  • Wedding: July 2010 - The Tower Club

I was going to suggest “the apartment,” & fashion industry gallery, which is about $5k to rent. Those two are the only ones that made me think “New York” when I saw their webpages.

I also was seriously into the Hickory Annex, but decided against it.

Kay Watson is also a great planner; $4200 for full coordination (but has a few less involved packages). Good luck with your search!

I am having my reception and ceremony at Third Space. We have the ceremony on the first floor. Everyone heads up to the loft for drinks while they flip the room and we take pictures. And then dinner on the bottom floor again family style at a long banquette table. I understand what you mean about event planning for yourself. Its so different when it is your own thing isn’t it?

@dancingKimba  My SIL decided not to have her wedding at Hickory Street Annex because she was having a daytime wedding.  She thought the loft would be more approproate for an evening wedding (so as to view the lit up Dallas skyline).  🙂
