I am trying to plan a March 2013 wedding. I am moving out of the country in three or four months and need to plan absolutely my entire wedding before I do. I am trying to book a venue right now because nothing happens without it! I live in Connecticut, so it is not easy for me to just find a venue in NY. I'm hoping someone has some ideas.
About us: We are fun, slightly non-traditional, and want an interesting space that is not reminiscent of a wedding factory. We love good food and do not want Italian food since neither of us eat pasta or breaded items. The food must be GOOD and plentiful since my family will be upset if they leave "hungry." I want there to be a space to dance, and a space to have the ceremony. Since it's March, outdoors may be too cold for anything but the ceremony.
Places I'm considering are: reBar in Brooklyn and Superfine, also in Brooklyn. I like reBar's look more than Superfine's, but I haven't eaten either of their food yet. I'm trying to go down there in three weeks and have a tasting.
If there are more places like reBar that anyone knows of, I'd like to know. Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island are all fair game and there MUST be parking available for people since everyone is coming from somewhere and they all have cars.
Thank you so much.
