Playful Outdoor Ceremony at the Foundry

“Neither of us are religious, so we made up a lighthearted ceremony with our officiant, Chris, and his wife, Dara, one of my best friends,” Risa says. “Weeks earlier, when Dara read me what she had written, we both sat on a park bench and cried happy tears together. It was so special and personal.” The pair exchanged vows they’d written themselves against a brilliant backdrop of colorful ribbons, and just as they were pronounced husband and wife, the Hungry March Band made their grand entrance and whisked the newlyweds into the reception at the Foundry in Long Island City, New York.
