Alternative Wedding Receptions

If you’ve already decided that a formal, structured wedding isn’t for you, we’d still love to help you celebrate. On limited dates, Brooklyn Winery offers the option for a beautiful event designed to accommodate couples looking for a more casual reception or elopement party. 

Each celebration that we host at Brooklyn Winery is different, and whether you are seeking a venue that can host a small, intimate wedding dinner, a cocktail party celebration following a City Hall wedding, a dinner party to celebrate an elopement, or simply a pared down wedding without all of the bells and whistles, Brooklyn Winery can accommodate. If a big wedding isn’t for you, let us know, and we can customize the perfect evening to fit your personality, timeline, and budget!

Additionally, our Harvest Season (September through mid-October) is a unique time of year when our normal minimums do not apply so it’s the perfect time to host these types of celebrations! While these dates book quickly, we do have a few Saturdays and Sundays still available, inquire soon!

Please note that we cannot accommodate a ceremony for these packages and Alternative Weddings do not apply to our Regular Season weekend dates.
