Nothing says downtown glamour quite like New York City’s The Bowery Hotel—it’s the perfect backdrop for a classic Manhattan wedding! It looks like a castle on the inside with mounted deer heads, iron chandeliers and artful exposed brick walls, but it also features a fabulous terrace featuring terra-cotta banquettes and sumptuous hanging plants.
A classic gem on the Lower East Side, The Bowery Hotel easily becomes a top wedding destination for Manhattan brides, and we can totally see why! Below, we’re sharing three breathtaking weddings we’ve filmed at this stunning venue.
Courtney and Phillip looked like they were a scene right out of a fairytale on their wedding day. Exposed brick set the backdrop for their portrait sessions, with luxurious vintage fabrics and The Bowery Hotel’s opulent furnishings adding an unparalleled gilded romance aura to their special day.
Lucy and Alexander wanted their wedding to feel timeless, romantic, and above all, very New York, and The Bowery Hotel fit the bill! With a unique medieval/Moroccan aesthetic, the venue allowed the happy couple to easily choose their colors and decor without worrying much about anything else. Their reception was breathtaking, with long tables spanning the entire length of the hall, floral arrangements of varying heights, and lots and lots of candles with the dancing taking place in an adjoining room with a beautiful green tile fireplace as a backdrop.
In the same space where Lucy and Alexander held their dancing (in the video above this one), Blair and Drew hosted their sophisticated and stylish reception! The vintage decor is the same, but little enhancements to reflect the couple’s personality and aesthetics made it entirely unique and personalized. We love how the flickering of the candlelight added an additional layer of old world charm to the space!
