A Playful, Urban-Chic Wedding at Revolution Hall in Troy, New York
With brick walls, wooden beams and an elevated stage draped with red curtains, what’s not to love about this playful, urban wedding at Revolution Hall in Troy, New York? Rachel Cornell (27 and in marketing) and George Samaras (28 and in public relations) wanted their wedding day to be a quirky, relaxed occasion. Using vibrant colors following no particular pattern, spray-painting vases and leafy greens gold and many other elements, they brought their vision to life, and had everything captured on camera by Andrew Franciosa Studio. The ceremony took place in front of the wooden stage, which was draped with twinkling string lights and decorated with glowing letters that spelled out "Yay" and Rachel's and George's first initials. Flower Scout created a bridal bouquet that was a work of art, filled with ivory roses, ranunculus, stock and dusty miller arranged with red peonies for pops of color. The industrial space was then transformed into the ballroom reception, where tables were marked with a variety of designs, such as a design of two tomatoes that read "I love you from my head to tomatoes." The Funfetti wedding cake embodied the wedding's playful ambience, covered in rainbow sprinkles and topped with two blue penguin figures positioned underneath another "Yay" sign in gold. Our favorite detail? Rachel's beautiful Alice Temperley ivory dress accented in lace with a Joanna August wrap skirt, which she took off for the reception, revealing the short skirt with a sheer long overlay. "The best advice is to look around during the wedding and take in everything," Rachel says. "It's all the people you love the most in one room, and that's worth pausing for."
