Modern meets industrial might be my favorite way to say “I do,” especially when that glorious gem of a day is planned by the genius that is Exquisite Affairs Productions, serves up yummy treats from Marcey Brownstein and is set against a stunning Foundry backdrop.  That’s what we like to call a dream team of vendors, and the result is pure magic, right down to the tulip-lined tables.  Get your city chic on in the full gallery captured by Brian Hatton.  It’s amazing.
