“As I’m in a sorority, I’ve been to a dozen of my sisters’ weddings the past couple of years. I wouldn’t be able to tell you who got married where — all the halls look the same. But they’re going to remember MY wedding.” Sara, TheArtFactory Bride.

If there’s one thing you can count on when you host your wedding celebrations here, it’s that this is not your parents’ catering hall.

A City Within a City: About TheArtFactory

TheArtFactory is a city-within-a-city with nearly 300,000 square feet of historic factory loft space on a 5-acre, 21-building campus located 12 miles from NYC. Our venue space has adapted this 180-year-old former rope factory adjacent to the new Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park into a vibrant campus for creative business, community, shopping, dining, and events. Now, you can visit our unique space to browse our retail shops, dine in our cafe, scout for your film or photoshoot, meet our many creative vendors, or check out our amazing NJ wedding venues and meet with our design team.

Make a Day of it!

Walk through our gate straight into the Paterson Great Falls National Park or board one of our old-fashioned trolleys for the ultimate historical experience! Witness where George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and Lafayette paused for a picnic lunch during the Revolutionary War and be awed by the second-highest waterfall east of the Mississippi. The area is great for hiking, strolling, picnicking, and learning about the City of Paterson — the first planned industrial city in the United States founded by Alexander Hamilton himself!

Narrowing Down Your Options for Wedding Venue Rentals to “The One”

One of the biggest decisions you will make after getting engaged is picking the wedding venue. It has the ability to set the tone of your entire wedding, so you can’t make the choice lightly. While it may feel daunting to choose only one venue from a long list of gorgeous wedding halls in NJ, you can narrow down your options by considering the following factors:

  • Your Timeline: The best wedding venues in Paterson, NJ, and beyond get snatched up quickly. You will have better success booking it if you’re flexible with your dates. Who wants to wait? The good news is that we still can make your dream wedding come true in 2022!
  • The Venue’s Location: One of the biggest mistakes we see brides and grooms make when planning their NJ weddings is that they fail to consider the distance between one venue and the next. If the route between the hall for the ceremony and the venue for the reception is confusing, guests may get lost, and the bride and groom will have an empty cocktail hour. TheArtFactory wedding venues in New Jersey can accommodate both the ceremony and the reception. For example, you can get married in one of our beautiful courtyards and then host a loft wedding reception.
  • The Venue’s Style: Ultimately, you will want to choose a space that will bring your vision to life. Whether you’re interested in a rustic wedding, a Bohemian theme, or a Disney wedding, our NJ wedding venues can be customized to your tastes.
  • The Venue’s Size: When choosing a venue, you will need to think about how many guests you will be inviting. Our planners are experts at hosting intimate wedding parties — whether the guest list consists of 100 people or 300.
  • The Items Included: Are you interested in full-service venues, or are you okay with bringing in your own vendors and décor? These are important questions to ask yourself as you compare wedding venues in New Jersey. We supply the tables, chairs, décor. With the Art Factory Campus we are your dream wedding planner all inclusive. Our guide will show you how to plan your dream wedding at the cost you love.  In addition our vendors are all on site.  We make wedding planning stress free with all the best people in the industry under one roof.
