Romantic Autumn Wedding at The Foundry

Bold statement alert: the gallery you’re about to click through is bar none my favorite Jen Huang wedding ever. And if you take a look back at her amazing work over the years, you’ll realize that’s a pretty big deal. With layer upon layer of rich berry tones and floral lover’s heaven a la Poppies & Posies, this Monday morning just got really, REALLY good.

From The Bride…My vision for the wedding design was romantic and ethereal, much as is my personal style. I’m a California girl through and through, and I wanted the wedding design to show my casual-but-funky style. Purple is both my and my husband’s favorite color, so we started our palette there, and moved on to include mint greens and rose golds.

The inspiration was vintage chic, with a lot of very soft touches to contrast with the industrial design of the space. As writers and scifi nerds, it was also very important to us to incorporate quite a few personal elements (hence the star wars table names, the vintage typewriter, the invitation addressed to Dumbledore,  and the LOTR quotes!). The aesthetic was ultimately driven by my gown, which in layers of blush silk chiffon and organza-but with a high couture design, embodied the romantic, modern fairy tale vibe I had envisioned. Because I wore blush, I wanted my bridesmaids to wear ivory, and the sweep of our collective gowns really added sense of airiness to the space. 

I put together a lot of the details myself-with the help of my very patient bridesmaids-including the chalkboards and cakestands-and although it was a lot of work, the end result was better than anything I could have ever hoped for. Everything flowed together so perfectly, from the romantic twinkle lights, to the vintage sofas, to the farm tables, to the deep purple dahlias and earthy succulents. Every detail of the design was seamlessly integrated, and although nothing ever goes exactly as planned, the culmination was flawless; there isn’t a single thing I would’ve changed about my wedding day!

It’s a sweet sophistication that will keep you coming back for more.

From Betsi Ewing Studio… While in New York for business Madrid native Daniel was introduced to Gitty through a mutual friend. Neither knew they were being set up when they arrived at the now defunct Hotel Griffou in the West Village. Their dating savvy friend had thought it best they meet before having the opportunity to Google each other, and not because either was sitting on extensive criminal indictments but because she thought the “old fashioned way” stopped both from arriving with pre-conceived notions. Two weeks after they first met, Daniel returned to New York and took Gitty on four dates in a row. And while Gitty thought the relationship was most likely not going anywhere due to the fact that their homes sat on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, she still accepted his invitation to join him in Madrid for a week. And from there began a back and forth between Madrid and NYC which still continues today. They decided to get married in New York because it was where they met but also because it was halfway between Gitty’s family in Los Angeles and Daniel’s family in Spain. They married in an open plan loft in Chelsea surrounded by 140 of their closet friends and family. Their friend Jeff, who performed the ceremony, described it as the joining together of Gitty’s 120 friends with Daniel’s 20. It was a wonderful night of which they remember very little outside of the ceremony and the tug of war over the air conditioning. The Spanish contingency felt strongly that any air conditioning was too much while the Americans explained that sweating was not an attractive look. In the end, a compromise over the thermostat was reached. No doubt the first of many to come.

You’d be hard pressed to find a love story sweeter than this. What started as neighbors in Brooklyn for six years ended in an eventual date, proposal and wedding set in the very same neighborhood where it all began. Think classic elegance meets urban charm, with Gabrielle Aronas’ beautiful florals, Stacie Ford’s flawless makeup and Katie Osgood working magic behind the lens. More right here.

From The Bride…For years Greg was just the boy who lived below me. We passed one another in the hallway of our Brooklyn brownstone hundreds of times and after 6 years decided we should be friends. We soon became inseparable and what started out as friendship quickly developed into so much more. We fell in love over Thursday night drinks, Sunday dinners and countless Yankee games and after 2 ½ years of dating Greg proposed to me at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Greg and I quickly jumped right into wedding planning. We met, fell in love, and got engaged in Brooklyn ?? so it just felt right to get married in Brooklyn too. After going back and forth on the size of the wedding we ultimately decided on 80 of our closest friends and family. We hoped that number was small enough to feel intimate yet large enough to feel festive. We visited several venues but after seeing Brooklyn Winery we immediately knew it was perfect for us.

Planning a wedding can easily become very stressful. Fortunately we worked with wonderful vendors who alleviated much of that stress. Rachel and Jessica at Brooklyn Winery were a godsend. They were so patient and always happy to answer our many questions. Our florist (Gabrielle Aronas) was an absolute joy to work with and her flowers and tablescapes created a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere. My makeup (Stacie Ford) and hair (Ramona Azcona) far exceeded my expectations. I have never felt more beautiful and I will always be grateful to them for their warmth and professionalism. And finally, hiring Katie Osgood as our photographer was quite possibly the best wedding decision we made. She is an incredible talent who captured our special day so beautifully. And as an added bonus she is super fun too! Many, many thanks to all of the wonderful people we were lucky enough to work with.

After 6 months of exhaustive planning, our wedding day finally arrived on April 18th, 2014. It was everything we had hoped for ?? a day filled with immense love and happiness. We are so thankful for the limitless support and devotion of our families. We loved celebrating with them and will cherish our many memories for a lifetime.
