{marry me loves} rock ‘n roll wedding venues

We are ALL ABOUT out-of-the-box wedding venues.  Farms, backyards, museums, a favorite restaurant – anytime we come across a unique location, we get super giddy.

There is truly nothing like live music, and Long Island has definitely produced amazing talent (Joan Jett, Billy Joel, Lou Reed) and houses a fair share of  famous venues and theaters.  Music tends to be a vital part of many weddings, and if you and your future spouse pray to the rock gods, follow your favorite band to the ends of the earth, or go out dancing every weekend, is it that much of a stretch to consider a music venue for your big day?  All you’d need to do is throw in food, family and friends, and you’re a guest at your own concert.  So, for all of those brides and grooms that were born to rock, here’s our list of Long Island music venues that host private events.

If you’ve been to a show at the Paramount in Huntington, you know just how great the venue is, and might be excited to know they  allow for event rental of parties of any size (capacity up to 1600) , and any type, from cocktail to weddings.  I’d also ask how their Trolley could work for your guests.

The Emporium in Patchogue has been creating quite a buzz over the last year, and for pretty good reason.  The venue not only hosts great live acts on it’s large stage, but also has an outdoor beer garden, spacious dance floor, bowling alley, 48 draft lines, and an award-winning chef behind it’s restaurant.

89 North, also located in the Village of Patchogue, is a new, spacious venue that can allow for up to 450 guests.  Competitive food specials with local restaurants takes the stress of searching for off-premise catering. Local beers and Long Island wine is on tap, along with a fully stocked top shelf selection of liquor.
