The Foundry in Long Island City, New York is filled with lush greenery — ivy spills over the brick walls, and industrial-inspired lights create a warm ambiance. When Diana and Carlos saw it, they knew it was the perfect place to have their wedding, as they wanted to create the feeling of having a big dinner party in an overgrown garden.
The style was modern with vintage touches, and romantic but with a whimsical feeling. They rented vintage furniture to give the space an old-school vibe and look that’s timeless. Some of vintage props were brought from home, such as a gramophone, crystal decanters and vintage mirror. The venue was filled with draping greens and floral giving it an organic look. The stylists used pink and deep purple ranunculus, Juliet roses, trailing jasmines, astilbes and proteas just to name a few.
The couple opted for long barn tables and sat with our families and friends. The dinner was served family style, as they wanted everyone to socialize with one another. The planning process all revolved around the wedding dress, which was Holly gown by Vera Wang. From there the bride pinned down the color scheme: variations of grey, deep shades of blue, dark masala and gold, which all complemented blush very nicely.
The black + gold calligraphy invites are by Written Word Calligraphy. The stunning bridal bouquet by Ivie Joy Flowers was fashioned around a king protea. How gorgeous are the dark and bold accents that complement the bride’s dress? Rounding out the blush tones, Diana’s maids wore gowns in a charcoal hue from The Wedding Library.
A nod to the couple’s first date was made with an assortment of stacked crepe cakes! Enjoy the pictures of this stunning wedding below!
