A Colorful, Eclectic Wedding at The Foundry in New York City
Throughout their wedding, Jacqueline Cann and Michael Madravazakis planned many fun surprises for their guests, including an ice cream truck, an Airstream photo booth, mobile oyster shuckers, three different bands and a cigar bar. "This is what drove our creative style more than anything else," the couple says. To design the space, they incorporated bright colors—specifically purples, pinks and blues—into their modern, industrial venue. They also drew inspiration from The Foundry's glass-paned doors that lead to the courtyard. "We thought it would be an awesome feature to turn these doors into a stained-glass backdrop for the ceremony," the couple says. "We carried the colors and shapes from the stained glass into the rest of the wedding design"—including the invitations, signage and flower arrangements. "For the reception, we choose a clear tent that we decorated with hanging flower garland and crystal chandeliers. The tables had tones of magenta, purple and blue flowers along with green succulents and gold accents," the couple says. Other personal touches included Jacqueline's purple floral shoes, colorful hanging escort cards and an ombré blue wedding cake.
