A Romantic, Industrial Wedding at the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls in Beacon, New York
Kate Thomas (27 and a writer) and Jordan Friedson’s (27 and a personal trainer) spring wedding was a fusion of industrial and timeless styles with a palette of soft pink pastels and sleek metallics. “We wanted to accentuate the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley in the springtime,” Kate says. “Similarly, we latched onto industrial, elegant, romantic and vintage-inspired things to help thread our vision together and set the overall tone.”
The day started with an intimate ceremony in the manicured gardens of the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls in Beacon, New York, overlooking waterfalls nearby. Fleurs NYC created a stunning cherry blossom, rose, peony, grapevine and birch wedding arch for the occasion. After saying their “I dos,” the newlyweds ushered their guests into the Roundhouse’s Waterfall Room for a night of dinner, dancing and lots of celebrating.
With the help of Bellafare and Fleurs NYC, the couple transformed the former textile factory into a romantic scene with a mix of full, garden-inspired arrangements of roses, peonies and cherry blossoms, shimmery mercury glass, brightly lit lanterns and stately candelabras. They also made sure to include details that spoke to their roots and their history. Guests signed vintage postcards from Kate and Jordan’s home states, New York pretzels were served as a late-night snack, and the pair paid tribute to their pets with a signature cocktail named after their cat, Walter, and a groom’s cake fashioned in the likeness of their dog, Greta.
A tip from Kate and Jordan: “Be present. Don't sweat the small stuff the day of, and be as 'in your body' as possible; you will want to try and savor every detail you can, since it goes by so fast. Oh, and dance! Dance a ton.” —Libby MacCarthy
