Beautiful Venue, Beautiful Wedding

From Kate Ignatowski Photography: Hidden in West Chelsea is an intimate rooftop complete with old railroad tracks, cafe dinning, and tons of character details. Kristina actually found Gallow Green because she could see it from her office window. Intrigued, she discovered a space that was already full of lovely decor - the perfect spot for her May wedding.

Trust Your Vendors

From the Bride: We did not have room in our budget for a wedding planner, so we found it was beyond helpful to find a space that was so beautiful on its own that we could build on the aesthetic foundation that was already there by adding personalized touches and romantic elements. The venue and staff, and our amazing florist, were the main reasons we did not get super stressed about the day.
