The Green Building was fantastic! From the staff who helped us out by working with our budget for any additional setup, answering my many questions, or being flexible with our setup and time, to the actual space itself. Everyone who attended loved the venue and the convenience of having both our ceremony and our reception in the same place. We had a large party of 150 guests but still managed to get everyone in and seated for both events. It was initially difficult to contact them via their website so we went directly to the building and the woman who met with us was pleasant and professional. A great deal for the space in Brooklyn as you can bring in any caterer you want.

We had our October 21st Wedding at The Green Building and we could not have been happier! Quin Johnson was beyond helpful in planning and a true pleasure to work with. She made everything so easy for us!
The space is just gorgeous. We had our ceremony and reception inside. The ceremony could not have been more romantic. We used the front wall (the one with the kitchen entrance) and had a light wall hung. The lights combined with the rustic charm of the space was breathtaking. Our cocktail hour was in the outdoor space which looked fantastic with the lights strung along the top. The indoor space was just the perfect size for our reception of 135 seated. We did banquet style tables and still had plenty of room for a dance floor.
I cannot even begin to count the number of compliments we received on how beautiful our venue was. It is truly a magical space.

The Green Building had just the atmosphere my husband and I wanted for our wedding and reception of 150 guests. It has an old-world industrial Brooklyn feel with exposed brick and wood beams. The columnless room allows for a flexible floor plan; the high ceiling makes the room voluminous. The details are simple and give a taste of an era gone by with elegant chandeliers and a small retro speakeasy lounge for a cozy private spot. I fell in love with the space.
Ours was a summer afternoon wedding and the soft light that filtered through the high windows was a lovely touch. We chose a simple decor but the space could easily support more dressing up.
Everyone at The Green Building was helpful, especially Brooke who was excellent at communicating and offering practical options to consider. We were in very good hands. It was a wonderful event- everyone loved The Green Building. I highly recommend this space for weddings or other events.

We got married last weekend and we had our reception at the Green Building. Not only was the reception a fantastic affair but the Green Building was amazing. We wanted an urban chic wedding with a vintage flare. The Green Building staff helped us to make our vision come true and our friends and family were more than impressed with the space. I highly recommend the Green Building and Quin, Meghan and Brooke were more than helpful to answer questions, give recommendations and provide solutions to any challenges. If you are looking for a great space at a reasonable price consider this venue. We did and we couldn't be happier.

Book early! This is a popular spot. For New York, I think it qualifies as a budget option. I loved that you didn't need to worry too much about decorating it. It looks "special" as it is; throw some candles up in the windows and call it a day. Love that you get the space for 24 hours.

My fiance and I fell in love with The Green Building when we saw it. We knew it would allow us to create a wedding that felt like "us", and have our family and friends experience a little piece of our lives right here in Brooklyn. We also loved that we could bring in Frankies Spuntino to cater, and that the space, although empty, had SO MUCH character (including the lobby entrance, and the speakeasy), and the nice, new and plentiful bathrooms in the space.

The staff at The Green Building is pretty laid back, which most of the time is great, because this means they are flexible...in fact, they pride themselves on being flexible!, however, every once and a while I wished they were a little more responsive. This isn't really a negative, more a warning to stressed-out brides out there.

We used their bar program, and we went with the full bar package. We were so glad we did. The cocktail list is great, the drinks were delicious at the wedding, and allowing the staff to organize the bar instead of us, relieved us of a lot of extra work. We did, however, upgrade the wines, which were ok, but for a few extra dollars, we drank what we wanted. (flexible!)

There was a huge rain storm the day of our wedding, so we didn't get to take photos outside, but if you can, union street around the bridge is great for pictures, and we were also planning on having our first look at Cobble Hill Park, a short car ride away.

The space was a welcome haven from the storm outside for our guests, and the space looked so inviting with the candles and flowers. The staff was very attentive, and the day was beautiful. We unfortunately also didn't get to use the large gate, but still, the room felt intimate with 90 guests.

Overall, TGB is an absolutely lovely space, and our guests were amazed. We would DEFINITELY recommend the space for anyone that wants to show off the neighborhood to their guests. The Green Building is really a gem!

I loved working with the Green Building. It is definitely not what you want if you are looking for something traditional, but it was perfect for me and my husband. We were not limited by caterer or booze. It is a gorgeous venue, but not if you are having a 'princessy' sort of wedding. It was exactly what I wanted for my wedding and would recommend it to anyone.

I can't say enough about the Green Building.

The raw space is gorgeous.

The staff is SO helpful. Especially our day-of-coordinator, Quin. SHE EARNED HER MONEY!! Our wedding was very much an event complete with staged dances and musical numbers. She coordinated all our vendors and had everyone on a timeline that Quin adjusted on the spot to accommodate the flow of the wedding. Everything went off with out a hitch. We could never have done it with out her.
