Wedding at the Foundry
Who? : Ashley + Alexandros
What? : Preparations, first look, portraits, ceremony, and reception at a restored 19th century Long Island City building
Where? The Foundry
When? : May 2019
“THE FOUNDRY INTERIOR BOASTS 3,000+ SQUARE FEET OF RAW SPACE WITH A LUSH OUTDOOR COURTYARD, ROOFTOP TERRACE WITH VIEWS OF THE MANHATTAN SKYLINE, INDOOR GREENHOUSE AND FULLY EQUIPPED INDUSTRIAL KITCHEN.” When I read this on the Foundry’s website, I had to press pause for a second. Three thousand square feet? Raw space? An outdoor courtyard? A rooftop? In Long Island City? WHAT WAS THIS PLACE?
Turns out, it’s the Foundry, and it’s everything you could possibly want – and more. From the skylights in the getting-ready suites to the huge private courtyard, this wedding venue is a perfect find for couples looking for a unique-but-charming place to hold their wedding. As a photographer? Especially one who loves quirky spaces, great light, and greenery? It’s a dream come true.
Also a dream come true? Ashley and Alexandros. They’re funny, incredibly sweet, witty, lovers of family and friends alike, and they know how to throw a warm, welcoming event that brings everyone together under the stars and sky to celebrate. You two, it was an honor to celebrate with you and to document your day.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:
