IndieWeddingGuide is really diggin’ the speakeasy industrial theme happening at this gorgeous wedding sent in by Manhattan-based photographer Zorz Studios.
Here’s the story told by Zorz Studios:
Heather and Brian worked in insurance for the same big company but never actually ran into each other in the building, partly because Brian at the time worked as an outside Rep and didn’t come into the office frequently. They met each other out at a company sponsored event, after which point became inseparable.
For her wedding day, Heather wore a gorgeous lace mermaid gown which she found at The Bridal Garden, a not-for-profit bridal boutique in New York City in which all proceeds benefit education for disadvantaged children. “It was awesome to know my purchase went to such a terrific cause! I bought it off the rack and it fit me almost perfectly!” says the bride. The dress designer: Marchesa

The couple fell in love with The Green Building for its effortlessly beautiful interior and the vintage flair. The Green Building was previously a brass foundry and has beautiful original brick walls, exposed beam ceilings, gold chandeliers, and even a back speakeasy room equipped with vintage decor and red velvet curtains. Their vendors helped create a warm and intimate setting.
“The rabbi read our vows of why we wanted to marry each other, the touching vows Brian wrote brought me to tears and my favorite part during the ceremony was when Brian reached over to wipe my tears away,” says Heather. “I am Jewish and Brian Protestant, so we decided to fuse our backgrounds by incorporating an Irish ‘hand-fasting’ and a stomping of the glass, both beautiful traditions and incredibly sentimental.”
Music from Rhythm of the Night Entertainment and
rentals were from Broadway Party Rentals. Helping put everything together was Event Planner Parties N All LLC, and video was created by Kiss The Bride Films.
Paying homage to the speakeasy theme, guests took home little bottles of whiskey.
After the dinner, dancing, and cake we ended with a food truck by Wafels & Dinges which was a huge hit!
