The bare nature of industrial wedding venues is what makes them appealing to so many. Often, these restored lofts, warehouses, factories and buildings boast open floor plans, brick walls, soaring windows bringing in natural light, exposed beams and rafters, concrete or hardwood floors—and little else. The structural design elements are covetable, and the vast emptiness elsewhere in these spaces leaves so much up to the imagination. This means that if you opt for an industrial wedding venue, you'll likely wind up with wedding day decor that is totally up to you. Whether you go rustic, romantic, glam, eclectic or any style in between, the setting will be a testament to yourself, your partner and your love story.

What makes industrial event venues even better is that you can find them in most cities across the United States. And, because they're indoor venues, they're suitable for weddings year-round. If you aren't buying into the hype or you're not convinced about how industrial-chic these venues can become, let us change your mind below. We've sourced 14 outstanding industrial venues from all over the country that can help you make a bold statement on your big day.

Warehouse Winery in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minneapolis's Warehouse Winery is an eclectic industrial wedding venue and working winery. The event space's decor is a hodgepodge of metals, light fixtures, chandeliers, wine barrels and internationally sourced collectibles. The self-described "relaxed" venue is so much fun and can accommodate 150 guests for a seated dinner or 200 for a standing event. Your one-of-a-kind wedding day will include a reception room, an event coordinator, a sound system, tables, chairs, lounge furniture, uplighting, a bridal suite, HD TVs and more. You can also utilize add-ons like candelabras and candles, a pool table and an outdoor patio setup.

The Loft by Bridgeview in Island Park, New York

The Loft by Bridgeview in New York's Island Park village has all the characteristics of a contemporary industrial space, such as reclaimed wood and exposed brick. This industrial vibe is elevated by other chic details, including waterfront views, decorative lighting and crystal chandeliers. What else is great? When it comes to wedding planning, the Loft by Bridgeview will be there to guide you by providing you with a banquet sales manager pre-event. On your big day, you'll have a maître d'. The venue also offers a list of preferred vendors for photography, videography, music, florals, transportation, decor, hair, makeup and more.

Prospect House in Dripping Springs, Texas

Twenty-five minutes from downtown Austin, on 20 acres of Texas Hill Country, you'll find Prospect House—a strikingly modern special event venue designed by Texas architect Max Levy. The industrial details here are understated but ever-present: In the Breezeway, for example, exposed framing illuminated by natural light will grab your attention. The Biergarten outdoor space features a concrete and steel bar. And the Main Hall indoor space features paneled 15-foot-tall ceilings. As noted on the Prospect House website, the interior and exterior spaces were designed to flow "from one to the other and back again," and they do. It's a truly gorgeous minimalistic space that can be the blank canvas for your big day.

Melrose Market Studios in Seattle, Washington

Head Northwest, to Seattle, for an industrial destination wedding at Melrose Market Studios. Brick walls, exposed beams, concrete floors—the staple industrial interior design elements are all here at this refurbished 1927 building. The 5,000-square-foot space is designed to accommodate up to 150 guests, but smaller areas can be created with curtains for more intimate weddings, too. Melrose Market's venue pricing starts as low as $650 for a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday affair and rises to $1,100 for a Thursday or Sunday event, $1,950 for a Friday event and $2,950 for a Saturday event. This rental fee includes 10 hours of venue access, 22 round guest tables, eight support tables, 220 black chairs, a projector and projection screen and a sound system.

Moniker Warehouse in San Diego, California

Moniker Warehouse is owned an operated by San Diego's Moniker Group, a collective that calls itself "the dream factory." The nickname is apt because at Moniker Warehouse, you can throw your dream industrial wedding with the help of Moniker Events. The modern event venue wants to be your blank slate; it's equipped with a large indoor space and a separate cocktail hour space, and it can accommodate wedding receptions of 90 to 160 guests. Venue features include hardwood floors, exposed beams and ceiling pipes, white brick walls and modern chandeliers that bring some glam to the space. The Warehouse also provides couples with optional sound equipment, tables and chairs.

Olio in Peabody, Massachusetts

New England's Olio is located 30 minutes from Boston, in Peabody, Massachusetts—and with hardwood floors, cement walls, exposed beams and soaring ceilings, it's about as industrial as it gets. It's another blank canvas venue; dress it up, make it rustic, bring in romance … no matter your wedding day style, your celebration here can reflect it. The event space has history, too: The building dates back to 1912, at which time it was originally home to the Strand Theater. (It was sold in 1957.) From November 2018 to April 2019, it was renovated into what it is today—Olio—while maintaining its historic charm.

MyMoon in Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn's MyMoon is a restaurant and event venue operating since 2005. (It's also in our Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.) The renovated 19th century boiler room is industrial-chic. Aspects like exposed brick and reclaimed wood floors are complemented by 20-foot ceilings and a private garden. Host your outdoor wedding ceremony on MyMoon's deck, which can hold up to 160 guests and features a retractable roof, glass walls, and heating (if needed). For your wedding reception, you can opt for a five-hour seated dinner with hors d'oeuvres, family-style food, dessert and an open bar, or you can choose a four-hour cocktail reception with hors d'oeuvres, charcuterie and cheese, dessert and, yes, still an open bar.

Herban Feast's Sodo Park & The Foundry in Seattle, Washington

Herban Feast's Sodo Park & The Foundry are two distinct Seattle wedding venues, and each can set the scene for your chic wedding, industrial style. For starters, Sodo Park perfectly meshes rusticity with industrial design. The century-old former manufacturing facility has a 7,500-square-foot open floor plan, ridiculously high ceilings, so many exposed beams, hardwood floors and romantic light fixtures. On the other hand, the equally-as-glam Foundry features traditional industrial elements blended with modern decor, such as a stone fireplace, a rain waterfall and barn doors. Special events at each venue are exclusively catered by Herban Feast. Herban Design Studio can assist you with florals and decor—crossing a big item off of your wedding planning to-do list.

Luminary in Brainerd, Minnesota

Minnesota's Luminary is gorgeous. It's located inside the Clocktower at Northern Pacific Center. We love it because the venue took its industrial elements (bricks, exposed beams, soaring windows) and made everything white. The resulting aesthetic, mixed with tons of natural light and a gold stenciled floor, is indescribably pretty. Needless to say, you won't need a photo booth to take Insta-worthy pictures. Luminary can also host your wedding ceremony, but if you want something different, there are other Northern Pacific Center options too: the Courtyard, Three Main, Aurora Fields, or the Red. Your Luminary rental includes reception tables and chairs, a furniture vignette rental and two getting ready suites, as well.

Hangar 1 Distillery in Alameda, California

The Bay Area's Hangar 1 Distillery, just outside of San Francisco, is a distillery venue within the Alameda Naval Air Station building. Not only will you, your spouse-to-be and guests enjoy the industrial atmosphere, you'll also get to celebrate post-nuptials by sipping on beverages brewed on-site. Boasting a lounge, a mezzanine and an outdoor space, the versatile venue can accommodate parties with anywhere from 50 to 400 guests as well as engagement parties, showers, rehearsal dinners and elopements. With its industrial elements and wedding day flexibility, there's no reason not to say "I do" to this wonderful venue.

Castaway Portland in Portland, Oregon

Castaway Portland resides in a restored 1929 warehouse. Concrete floors and a catering kitchen were added during the restoration, but original steel sash windows and exposed beams remain intact and enhance the event venue's industrial vibe. With 10,000 square feet of open space, Castaway Portland is beckoning you to envision your dream wedding inside the facility. You can pretty much invite everyone you know, as the venue has room for 400 seated, 600 standing and an astounding 900 both indoors and outdoors. Included tables and chairs, a projector and projector screen and built-in interior and exterior sound systems are just bonuses of a big day at Castaway.

The Arbor Room in Charleston, South Carolina

The Arbor Room in Charleston used to be a plywood warehouse in the 1950's—but you wouldn't know it from its current state. Your wedding guests will step through glass double doors into a light and airy industrial interior that is complemented by contrasting light fixtures. Other Arbor Room highlights include 6,000 square feet of space, an open floor plan, trendy concrete floors, neutral walls and a catering kitchen. At the venue, you can host 250 guests for your wedding ceremony, followed by a cocktail reception or a seated dinner. The Arbor Room Venue Concierge team is also at your service to assist with the wedding planning process.

Moss Denver in Denver, Colorado

Aside from being industrial (exposed rafters, cement floors, factory windows), Moss Denver is so cool—and so fun. The creative team at Moss Denver keeps wedding guests engaged by "changing scenes and hiding surprises behind massive wooden doors." Here, you won't have a cookie-cutter wedding; you'll instead be immersed in a wedding experience. Moss Denver offers three packages, from simple to all-encompassing. Canvas puts the power in your hands, allowing you to use the space as your blank canvas. Design turns you into the creative director while you work with the Moss team to dream up your event. Finally, the Experience package takes your wedding to the next level. It's for couples who want to "create the event of a lifetime."

Pierpont Place in Salt Lake City, Utah

Pierpont Place has dubbed itself "Salt Lake's Premier Event Venue," and we can see why. What starts off as an industrial blank slate soon becomes your perfect wedding venue thanks to the event space's full-service offering, which includes wedding planning, interior design, decor, florals, catering, bar service, equipment rentals, entertainment, photography and more. The venue itself is located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, and it caps out at 200 for a seated event and 500 for a standing event. Pierpont Place will also happily host you for your engagement party, rehearsal dinner, photoshoot, wedding ceremony—and even your bachelor/bachelorette party.
