For the reception they chose The Foundry, an unconventional space in Long Island City. The couple loved the industrial feel of the venue, finding it clean and modern, and while it would take more resources to pull it all together, they could more easily personalize the space, something important to Alina and Adam. After picking their wedding date and a venue, it was time to book the rest of their wedding planning and design team. “I had been to a friend’s wedding who used Matthew Robbins and loved his work so I knew it would be beautiful,” says Alina. Mr. Boddington’s Studio designed the wedding invitations and Christian Oth Studio shot the wedding. Lyndsey Hamilton Events was hired to oversee everything and executed the day seamlessly. For her gown, Alina chose a wedding dress by Carolina Herrera. “I was smitten by Carolina Herrera because the store experience was so magical,” she explains. “I loved the deconstructed bow and the heavy satin. I think it’s stunningly sophisticated!” The bride and groom, their parents and siblings, who served as maid-of-honor and best man, stayed at The Plaza the night before and got ready in the world-famous hotel’s luxury suites, and were able to take advantage of the proximity to Central Park for some memorable photographs. “If I had to describe my wedding I would say it was filled with so much love,” Alina shares. “People came from all over the world–it was a destination wedding for most–and it was magical.” WINTER 2 017
