  • I was a guest at a beautiful wedding at the Art Factory. Martiza was the coordinator and my friend hired a few outside coordinators to make sure the wedding went smoothly. Those ladies were extremely professional and made the venue spaces look wonderful. There was one coordinator at the art factory who was not as professional and was often in wedding shots and was not professionally dressed for the wedding. This however was not my issue. My issue was with Chef Jon(John). He and his staff were completely unprofessional. Aside from the food being served cold or luke warm, he and his staff (fellow chef, maitre, and some servers) decided that it was okay to dance and drink reception. From the begininh the Maitre D was in the wedding videos in the middle of the dance floor at every moment without attending fully to his duties. The chef was rude to guests and requested songs from the dj. Honestly, the chefs behaviors are not a reflection of art factory and the wedding experience was wonderfu... Read more

  • What's not to love about the Art Factory. The venue is stunningly beautiful, especially with all the upgrades. It's one of the most inspiring places you will ever step foot in. Every site is picture perfect! No wonder Spielberg shot his West Side Story here. It seriously looks like a movie set. It's like living in a fantasy land! On our wedding day, everything was literally perfect. My wife and our families raved about our reception, and the ceremony and how great the place looked. Overall, it was an experience like no other. If you have an opportunity to have your wedding here... DO IT! You will be thrilled. We wish we could do it all over again every year!!!

  • The Art Factory attains incredibly important physical qualities and characteristics. The significance of the property and the historic context brought the entire experience to another level. The engineering work behind the "Engine Room", it's significant structure, the method of construction is an architectural tribute to the entire region and the history of manufacturing in the United States. Don’t let the negative comments and reviews fool you! TheArtFactory have a plethora of wonderful vendors to choose from. They’re available 24/7 to answer all your questions. Extremely professional! Can’t wait to come back for my first anniversary to TheArtFactory and enjoy my day surrounded by positive people and great vibes!

  • We will be honest, when we first visited the Art Factory we were a little skeptical. This is not your ordinary wedding venue, but that is a good thing. When we started looking for wedding venues, we both agreed that your typical catering hall would be our absolute nightmare. We knew we wanted something nontraditional, yet charming. The Art Factory gave us both. Although the process leading up to the wedding was extremely laid back, the Art Factory team was always accommodating of our requests to meet and they were nothing short of extraordinary on the day of our wedding. Chefs Jonathan and Ty gave us the opportunity to build a menu from scratch and they went above and beyond our expectations. The food and service were excellent. Our guests continue to compliments us on the venue, decor and food. David, Donata, Denise, Justin, and the rest of the Art Factory team turned our wedding into the day of our dreams. We can't wait to see what the future holds for this unique space!

  • When we walked into the Art Factory in the summer of 2018, our first impression was that it was an amazing, magical and unique place. At that point, their business as a wedding venue had just really started taking off, there was no Mercado (pop up shops) and it was truly just a raw space. We knew immediately that it was perfect. We chose our date and booked it. Over the year leading up to our wedding, we did visit often. We met with different staff each time and went over our decor choices often. What I will say is that communication was not great..until it was closer to out wedding date (understandably so). On the day of the wedding, nothing was ready at 8 am when we arrived. I did not expect it to be, as they had 2 huge weddings the night before. BUT when it was time for guests to arrive, everything looked beautiful. Now to give you some context of the type of bride I was.. I was not extremely picky about details, I was realisitic in my expectations, we had less than 100 guests and w... Read more

  • I found Art Factory in October 2018 and it was the unique industrial space we were looking for. They have made many amazing improvements to the space over the past year so we were excited to have these updates for our September 2019 wedding. There are many pros that Art Factory has compared to other venues: 1. We had a hard time finding a unique venue that allowed outside catering. We needed a kosher caterer and AF had no problem allowing outside catering. You’d be surprised just how many venues do not allow it at all because their in-house caterer “provides kosher meals” which are essentially fancy pre-made meals. No thanks. 2. No time limits meant we had access to the bridal suite as early as we needed where I know other venues don’t let you in before a certain time. You can also have your after party there without getting kicked out. 3. They provide a lot of decor and can make you things. They built me a champagne wall I saw on Pinterest and made a tunnel of lights. ... Read more

  • I recently held my wedding at the Art Factory in May 2019. My now wife and I locked down the facility in early 2018 and spent the next year and a half mapping out our wedding. My wife spent months putting together a comprehensive document detailing the decor for both the ceremony and reception that spelled out how we wanted everything to look, be positioned, etc as clear as can be. Throughout the planning process we had numerous instances that gave us pause and concern about the Art Factory’s ability to pull off our requests ranging from decor, to food and staffing. Not to mention that half way through the process we learned second hand there would be another wedding the same exact day as ours. We were constantly reassured by the Art Factory whenever we raised our concerns that they were more than capable of handling our worries. As you will read below what we were told was far from the truth. I do want to note that there were things the Art Factory did get right. Many of our... Read more

  • We wanted something a little different, and that it was! From the time our guests got on the trolleys and walked through the door to a very cool space, the feedback was fantastic! We brought in an outside caterer (Main Event/Mauzone) who presented the most fabulous food, and a wonderful florist (Papaya Events), but the venue itself is a huge, cool space with wonderful lighting and many interesting photo ops (try to utilize the waterfalls up the street for photos as well). The owner Dave tries very hard to accommodate everything needed. I would recommend this venue; we did also hire an outside coordinator for that day, to take care of the myriad details involved in an event of that size (we had 425 people), and that helped everything flow smoothly.

  • To summarize: At the end of the day everything came together beautifully and blew our expectations out of the water, but it was a bit of a journey to get there. For context, we had an August wedding with 150 guests, booked almost a year in advance, dinner was family style. The good: Everything that was promised happened! Over the months, we met with Justin a few times to iron out general decor and ideas we had specific to our wedding. We had some Harry Potter elements that we wanted included, ranging from hanging candles at the altar to ‘flying keys’ over our sweetheart table. They really went above and beyond in creating these fixtures (Thanks, Noel)! I hope they suggest the flying keys for future couples. :) Art Factory was extremely easy to work with for our outside vendors (music, photo, catering). They met with each vendor any time we requested it and always provided helpful information. People loved our food (New Orleans family style) which was served promptl... Read more

  • We visited the Art Factory in January 2019. David, the owner, and Chefs Jonathan and Ty totally sold us on the space. So much in fact that we booked that same day. Since the booking however, we were constantly disappointed by the lack of communication. As our messages on Basecamp--their main method of communication--went unanswered, we were left wondering if we would actually get what we were promised. The only way we could elicit a response on Basecamp was to personally text David. During our décor meeting, no one from the venue was taking any notes. Donata--in charge of decor--had to point out to Justin--one of the coordinators--that he wasn't taking any notes to which he replied that he'll remember everything. Thankfully, our day-of-coordinator, Christina had written everything down and passed it on to them. Three days before the wedding, as we were dropping off our alcohol, we were told that our ceremony space was under construction and that we might not be able to get married... Read more

  • Our experience at Art Factory (AF) was a very mixed bag. We first visited in spring 2018 and were impressed. It is a gorgeous, historic space with lots of possibility, big visions by the owners, and potential for so many varied uses. We liked that it was atypical, interesting, fairly cheap, involved a lot of customizations, and included everything in one price. We were also impressed by the charm and passion of the owner David. He and his wife, Donata, whom we thought would be doing all the design/execution of our wedding day experience, were a quirky and agreeable couple who seemed to share in our vision of having an offbeat but beautiful wedding. In the end, we did have a beautiful wedding but there were many issues along the way. We booked our wedding a few weeks after they held their first wedding, in late summer of 2018 and had it in summer 2019. We were very happy with the all-inclusive price, which covered: venue, transportation, parking, security, day of assistance, all dec... Read more

  • We are happy we had our wedding at the Art Factory. It is a beautiful and unique venue and on the day of our wedding, the space was beautiful and things ran smoothly. Justin, day-of-coordinator, was a lifesaver and works so hard to make everything perfect. He really helped to make our day so special. All of the staff are clearly dedicated and work tirelessly. Chef Jonathan is incredible and helped us create a tapas menu that reflected different dates we have been on. The food was amazing, came out quickly and the waitstaff was incredibly friendly and lead confidently by the wonderful Noel. I was frustrated with David and Donata’s communication. I felt from the first meeting we were promised many things that changed from the booking date to the day of our wedding. We were told originally we would be the only wedding that day but as they grew in popularity there was a wedding scheduled at the same time. Planning long-distance has its challenges but I gladly made the dr... Read more

  • I do not recommend The Art Factory for weddings! To start off I want to say I’m not one to take time out of my day to write reviews but The Art Factory ruined my expectations for a dream wedding and so I am sitting on a plane for my honeymoon writing this lengthy review to warn future brides of the headaches they are going to experience. We were sold a dream but given the exact opposite. With that being said, be prepared to settle for less and raise hell on your big day ladies and gentlemen! Get Drunk and make the best of it, otherwise it’ll all be for nothing! There came a moment when I had to accept that this wasn’t going to be all that I was promised or asked for. I found myself constantly repeating all of the details for my big day every time I visited the venue, even after our meetings and pic/file uploaded to the factory’s form of communication (basecamp). This app was not being utilized properly and the lack of communication and organization made me feel like I wa... Read more
