This Wedding is the Definition of Industrial Chic

Melissa Baran

I think you can get to know a lot about the kind of love a Bride and Groom just by their smiles. And these two? Well, their smiles say it all. Working with a handful of our fabulous Little Black Book Members including Polka Dot Events, 501 Union, Cobblestone Catering, Face Time Beauty Concierge and Isabel Selby, they pulled off an industrial chic wedding for the books. Join us for allll the moody romance, over in the full gallery! From Tracey at Polka Dot Events... Though both New York City born and bred, it took a move to Washington D. C. For law school at Georgetown University for Manhattanite Caroline and Staten Island native Max to meet and begin their relationship. The two were engaged by graduation and soon moved back to NYC where they settled in Brooklyn with their adorable doodle puppy named Edna. Caroline, an advocate and attorney, and Max, also an attorney, decided to hold their wedding at 501 Union, a former supper club with a swanky New York vibe, and teamed up with Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events and Sachi Rose Design to transform the space, and plan an event that was uniquely “them.”From their Staten Island Ferry Save The Dates (with Edna as the Captain) to their Earth-Day influenced favors (complete with Baggu reusable bags, ACLU bookmarks, the US Constitution, and seed packets) each detail of the wedding embodied Caroline and Max’s unique touch and personalities. Groupings of wildflowers lined the aisle leading up to a wild and asymmetrical cherry blossom chuppah with colorful orange, green and burgundy floral accents. Caroline, her mother and brother walked down the aisle to Sweet Caroline as the room smiled and giggled at the song choice. The ceremony was officiated by Cantor Nancy Bach, and Caroline and Max recited their own vows. Inside the reception, a large greenery installation was created to look as it was creeping out from 501’s skylights, and large wood tables were decorated with lush and colorful urn centerpieces and still-life accents of greenery and fruit. At each place setting sat natural linen napkins, sprigs of rosemary and a combined menu-placecard complete with an illustration of Edna in her dinner gear. The night was full of delicious new American style food from Cobblestone Catering and ended with a delicious dessert table of sweet bites and a small cutting cake from Luckybird Bakery.
