The Best Queens Wedding Venues | 2024

Queens wedding venues offer major benefits to couples having a NYC wedding. Firstly, many wedding venues in Queens boast incredible views of the Manhattan skyline that you just can’t get anywhere else. Secondly, many venues in Queens are much more affordable as compared to Manhattan wedding venues, allowing couples the opportunity to put more budget towards design, food, increasing guest count, etc. Opting for a Queens wedding venue is a great compromise to avoid the extra cost that comes with getting married in Manhattan.

As a NYC wedding photographer, I have curated this list of the best venues in the area to help narrow your search. This list considers many areas of venue selection – including capacity, location, views, and aesthetics.

Below is a list of all the factors you will want to consider when searching for your Queens wedding venue:

  1. Aesthetics
  2. Location
  3. Capacity
  4. Price
  5. Weather plans
  6. Vendor policies

The Foundry

An Industrial Queens Wedding Venue

The Foundry is one of my favorite Queens wedding venues. Although The Foundry is a traditionally industrial venue that features exposed brick and dates back to the 19th century, I find it to be really elegant. The fairy lights and large window at the end of the hall contribute to the ethereal feeling at a Foundry event. However, the courtyard, surrounded by ivy covered brick is my favorite feature of the venue. Even more, the terrace offers views of the Manhattan skyline and Queensboro bridge.

The Foundry Capacity: 120-165
Address: 620 5th Ave, New York, NY 10020
