When it comes to dramatic weddings, there are few venues more fitting than Long Island City’s The Foundry. Some of New York’s finest, including Amber Gress, All Who Wander Event Design, and Days of May, came together to design this brilliant styled shoot heavy on deep red tones and a stylish couple complete with a groom in a velvet jacket and a bride in a black jumpsuit with a transparent skirt overlay. Love, love, love.

From the event designer, Nicole of All Who Wander: When All Who Wander designed this shoot we set out to break the winter wedding norms, and The Foundry was the perfect back drop for the black, deep red, and gold color palette. The beautiful red of the sofa from Patina Vintage anchored the entire design and inspired us to put our “groom” in velvet as well. Our goal was to show that winter weddings can be both edgy and chic and that they don’t have to rely on a typical winter theme. Sheepskin chair throws create warmth in the reception space and brighten up the whole table, creating an intimate feeling paired with Days of May’s floral runner. We want to inspire couples not to be afraid of deeper, more rich colors for anything from a dress or suit to decor and rentals.

From the photographer, Amber Gress: This modern romance combines edge with a fashion forward statement piece from the designers of Synderela. This inspiration story is truly for the New York bride that knows, black is always in, and that a jumpsuit is the ultimate way to be glamorous yet relaxed on her big day. The removable/sheer skirt combines a sense of the glamorous with the carefree attitude of a bride who knows how to have fun on her big day alongside her one and only. The groom’s deep red jacket is his own statement piece that complements the beauty by his side in an equally relaxed look that allows his bride to shine. Everything from the florals, to the decor, and especially the venue really reflect the concept of the this shoot, and we couldn’t be happier to work with The Foundry as the perfect backdrop for this bride and groom.
