Zaina and Ben were married in Long Island City (whoot-whoot!) earlier this summer and planned an elegant yet spirited wedding at The Foundry. Although they wanted to avoid the religious connotations, the ceremony was both emotional and spiritual. The setting, which you may recognize from Sex and the City, 30 Rock, and Gossip Girl, was the perfect venue for a classic New York City wedding. It
has brick walls, metal and glass ceilings, and huge skylights.
The bride wore a sweeping strapless fluted gown with self bias layers by Watters and Watters. The gown falls to the ground with dramatic layers and has a sweep train. Along with her gorgeous gown, Zaina also wore a modern hairpiece with her updo. The attractive hairpiece was made up of a large silk flower with beaded leaves stemming outwards.
Zaina’s entire bridal party wore knee-length fuchsia bridesmaid dresses with a silver heel of their choice. The bride, meanwhile, wore a silver Badgley Mischka peep toe that had an eye catching glistening brooch.
For their engagement session with Casey Fatchett, Zaina and Ben recreated the famous the V-J Day kiss in Times Square. Check out Casey’s blog for those pics!
