A Modern Loft Wedding at The Foundry in Long Island City, New York
Inspired by mid-century architecture, furniture design and modern artists, Lauren Frank (31 and a director of merchandising at LOFT) and Ben Kessler (29 and director of marketing at WeWork) created a contemporary wedding in an industrial space that felt both warm and romantic. Using a black and white graphic motif with touches of mixed metals--including her Naeem Khan dress--the couple incorporated unique details like matte black flatware, copper Marais-style chairs and a fashion-forward stationery suite.
The thoughtful, contemporary attitude extended to the music too: Lauren walked down the aisle to a strong quartet cover of Kanye West's "Touch the Sky," and the couple danced to Radiohead to kick off the reception. "The little things we did to personalize the wedding all added up to a big impact," Lauren says. "We put a lot of work into every detail, but it represented our style and our passion, which made it all worth it."
