Weylin, a beloved Brooklyn, New York, landmark, reopened its doors in 2014 after renovations—and now, its breathtaking ceiling, embossed monogrammed hinges, and 2 million imported marble tiles throughout the Main Rotunda and Oculus Dome are just a few features that make this venue so special.

But the newly created Intimate Wedding package allows couples who are budget-conscious with a smaller guest list of 75-150 people to experience this architectural beauty (as opposed to their former minimu of 200 guests). The package starts at $300 a person, which includes a choice between the Main Rotunda or the Oculus Dome for the ceremony, the 1875 Bar for cocktail hour and the industrial hall for the reception. The package also includes access to local farm-to-table caterer, Fig and Pig, and provides guests with valet parking—meaning that "the experience starts at the entrance," says Matt Timme, Event Sales Director.

Weylin B. Seymour's (now Weylin) was formerly known as The Williamsburgh Savings Bank, and there are nods throughout the venue that remind guests of its history. The renovators maintained the original hardware, character and initials of the bank. The venue also contains the original presidential office, which doubles as a bridal suite. The venue also houses a working birdcage elevator—great for first look pictures.

After the ceremony, guests are invited to cocktail hour in the 1875 Bar. The speakeasy-inspired space contains a classic Chesterfield sofa and an accessible bank vault which will serve as entertainment for guests as they sip on your signature drink. This space is great for a band or DJ, as it features an easily convertible stage.

After cocktails, you can open the double doors of the bar which open into the industrial reception hall. In this space, guests will enjoy a more modern feel with clean lines and white walls, surrounded by dark mahogany supports. This space is essentially a blank canvas, and "it becomes the bride's Pinterest board," says Carlos Perez San Martin, General Manager. Weylin has seen everything from string lights draped across the ceiling to neon signage placed upon the walls.

A wedding at Weylin means an affair to remember with all of its elegance and architectural beauty—but the real fun is in mixing its splendor with your vision to create an incredibly unique day for you, your spouse-to-be and all of your family and friends.
