The demand for Industrial Wedding Venues in the US has risen greatly over the past few years and it's easy to see why. Warehouses, lofts and galleries are all perfect for couples who want a blank canvas to put their own personal stamp on their big day. With bare backdrops, traditional or modern decor, in a cool location, warehouses make for the ideal raw space to decorate to your hearts content and create your perfect wedding setting. Every year in the United States, there are approximately 2.5 million weddings and so many more brides and grooms are turning to this alternative and urban vibe for their special day.
Downtown Phoenix – The Warehouse District – The Croft Downtown
Where hipster meets historic. Downtown Phoenix is home to sports arenas, live music, rooftop bars, museums, theatres, art galleries, more than 100 restaurants and the up and coming Warehouse District. The warehouse district holds an eclectic mix of inspired businesses, pursuing their visions. Nestled in the heart of this palpably energetic and exciting district lies an oasis named The Croft Downtown. The Croft Downtown is unlike any other venue in the Phoenix area. The Croft Downtown offers urban cement floors and wood trellised ceilings, paired with stylish and chic décor to create an elegant yet comfortable ambience. This venue is equipped with an enchanting rustic ceremony area and a reception space for dinner, dancing and entertainment.
Why, you may ask? It’s all very well us singing the praises of Downtown Phoenix and the Warehouse District, but we wanted you to get real-life opinions and case studies to prove our point for us! So, we interviewed 3 upcoming brides to find out exactly why they have decided to tie the knot in their own wonderful warehouse wedding.
BRIDE A - “During the overwhelming experience of wedding venue searching, I had no clue where to start or what I wanted. All I knew is I wanted to avoid the carbon copy wedding that looks and feels the same to every wedding I’ve ever been too. When my husband-to-be and I came across The Croft Downtown online we were excited to see a location in downtown Phoenix that has such a cool and hip vibe. But our every expectation was surpassed when we arrived and toured the venue! I knew instantly a warehouse wedding was what I’ve been waiting for. Not only does it act as a blank canvas to personalize my wedding décor but also creates such an urban and raw backdrop which is like nothing I’ve seen before! I can’t explain how excited I am to get married here in the spring of 2020.”
BRIDE B – “I’ve always considered myself an alternative and indie kinda bride. I don’t want a princess gown or to conform to any sort of traditions. Although this has made my whole wedding planning a little harder than I expected, it has meant I will get the totally personalized and individual wedding of my dreams. The Croft Downtown was always my number one wedding venue of choice after I was a wedding guest here last year and I saw the diversity and creativity you can have with this sorta venue. I’ll be putting my personal stamp on every single detail of my special day which is totally doable thanks to The Croft Team. Needless to say, yes I am so ready to say yes in my warehouse wedding.”
BRIDE C – “Ever since I was a little girl, I planned every single detail of my wedding, most little girls do right?! I thought I’d be tying the knot in a church and cutting the cake in a hotel ballroom afterwards. How wrong I was.. My every plan was changed when I visited The Warehouse District in 2017 and toured the venue, The Croft Downtown. For such an up and coming area, I’d never really spent much time in Downtown Phoenix but I’m so glad we found this awesome venue. We can still transform this space to suit my chic and traditional décor dreams however with a cool, urban element too! The open brick and wood trellises contrast so perfectly with the chandeliers and fairy lights. It’s the perfect venue for my fiancé and I.”
