From Jen Huang Photography...Allison & Chris wanted a modern and romantic wedding, that played off the feel of fall. Poppies & Posies executed their vision beautifully with gorgeous fall inspired terrariums mixed with mushrooms, succulents and moss. Their wedding was held at the Foundry in Long Island City NY, an industrial setting juxtaposed against green ivy growing on the walls, with a view of the Queensboro Bridge off Manhattan. Allison & Chris were laid back and wanted their wedding to reflect an intimate style and subtle beauty. The large string lights set the mood for a fun dance party separate from the tented reception. The whole night glowed brightly despite the rain drops!
From the Bride...It was important to us to find a space that was raw enough to make our own, yet also stand beautifully on its own. We found beautiful places with a locked wedding aesthetic, and loft spaces that gave us the freedom to create our own wedding, but the Foundry offered the best of both worlds. The space is meticulously preserved, the staff always accommodating our sudden desire to show up, and we loved the way the light came through the skylight and large glass doors at the rear.
After our initial choice in the space choosing our caterer, flowers, photographer and DJ came from heavy research from numerous blogs trying to perfect our aesthetic. Their work and their attitudes about the work they did, heavily influenced our decisions to choose them. We really wanted something that reflected the time of year without being a fall themed wedding. We identified with the aesthetic that we saw in all our vendors, and thought in the end it really reflected our own personal taste.
In the end we were so happy to have worked with all these wonderful people and everything went so perfectly. We really couldn't have asked for a better day.
