The  joy of having a wedding in an industrial location is the atmosphere.Don’t try to turn it into something other than what it is. I actually think you can spend less on decorations.Enjoy the distillery for what it is. Don’t try to hide or cover up anything.

The surroundings will give you lots of great photo ops.

Build on the “industrial”atmosphere by including the elements of the distillery- glass,metal, wood,brick. Have your centerpieces provide the hit of color.

Love it!  If the distillery falls through, I know that Best Place at the Pabst Brewery (link) also does weddings.  We went on a tour there over the summer and it was pretty cute!

I think this is a great idea! My only question is if you will have chairs for your guests for the ceremony, since it’s a small space? You can get away with not having them so long as you keep your ceremony short!

We were seriously considering having our wedding at a local brewery since we both love beer and homebrew. Sadly, we had to abandon that idea when we realized that people under 21 wouldn’t be able to attend the ceremony or reception.

Have you been there?  They usually smell pretty awful.

I think a distillery could be a lot of fun… I looked at a few locations that were brewery restuarants but wound up at a winery for budget reasons.  The industrial feel will be a nice photo back drop!

I LOVE this idea! I agree short ceremony and chairs only for old people, and keep decorations simple and either super colorful or super romantic/soft as a contrast. Can I come? 🙂
