  • Wedding: September 2010 - Angel Orensanz Foundation

I looked at the Foundry bc I live in Astoria, but all the rentals to make the space cozy add up , and we found that the $ we’d spend on all the different rentals began to add up too quickly for our liking.  We had it at the Angel Orensanz in Manhattan instead and still spent less than we would have at the Foundry–and they’re strict about some vebdors, you cann only use their people (at least for furntiture like sofas, etc).

My male BFF is likely going to get married there bc he’s keeping it fairly small (120-125), but both our feelings that for a crowd any larger in less than perfect weather could feel slightly claustrophobic.  He’s doing an early Sept wedding (which I did also), so he’s using the outdoor space, but for a winter wedding, I’d lean more towards the Liberty Warehouse. What were your thoughts on the LW when you saw it?

@Eden Di Bianco:  Hey- I have never heard of the Angel Orensanz before but just looked at the site to it and it is GORGEOUS! At first I thought it was a church and since we are jewish that would not probably work for us and then I realized it was a synagogue- yay! I am just curious–approximately how much did it cost per person when you had your wedding there? We would need the food to be glatt kosher so would probably have to hire outside catering. I tried looking online for prices but couldn’t find anything! grrr!

@lexkat:  I would love to hear whether you have booked at Liberty Warehouse.  And, are there others who have signed for weddings there?  Also, any feedback from those who have used the facilities.

@lexkat:  Thanks for the update.  Since I like your taste, if you do not mind, would you share the venues you  like?

@lexkat:  I had the same experience with a man I talked to at Liberty Warehouse, I wonder if it was the same person. I didn’t even write his name down because after the initial phone call I was so turned off by the place. He came across as very condescending, like he was doing me a favor by even talking to me, he acted very rushed, etc. Listen, I know people are busy but he could have set up a different time to talk instead of acting like I’m some sort of pain in the ass. It’s expensive too – if I am going to shell out well over $30K for the honor of having my wedding at your precious venue, I expect to be treated with a little more politeness.

@lexkat:  I have been to Stage 6 for a wedding.  I thought it was wonderful.  The atmosphere was excellent and the room was very comfortable.  The ceremony was on the terrace with really great views.  The food was excellent.  I have been to several Abigain Kirsch venues and the food is always good and presented well.
