A Modern Wedding with Timeless Elegance at The Foundry
Old, New, Borrowed and Blue
Staying true to the tradition, bride Caitlin Brannon wore her grandmother’s mink coat as her something old and something borrowed for pre-wedding photos taken in industrial SoDo. Her dramatic V-neck ballgown and sweeping lace-trimmed veil served as her something new. And her something blue? Manolo Blahniks (à la Carrie Bradshaw, of course).
The couple wanted a wedding whose look was simple and modern while evoking a sense of timeless elegance. The team at Designs by Courtney created a moody yet graceful setting at The Foundry in SoDo. The setting’s focal point was an elaborate floral arch, which served as the background for both the ceremony and the cake-cutting festivities that followed. “Our florist went beyond my expectations in filling the venue,” says Caitlin. Glass elements, including hurricane candle vases for emitting a romantic glow, kept things classic, while chandeliers and white drapery added elegance to the decor.
