Cameron and Stephen knew the industrial vibe and open layout of The Foundry at Puritan Mill would be the perfect blank slate for their colorful summer wedding.
“We loved the old industrial vibe of the Foundry at Puritan Mill; the exposed brick, big windows, and open layout were amazing. We wanted a venue that didn’t feel stuffy, but was stylish, elegant, and trendy, and that’s exactly what we got with the Foundry!”
The couple shared a first look on Jackson Street Bridge before making their way to the ceremony, where a variety of colorful blooms in dainty white vases lined the aisle and flowing white drapery hung from the ceiling. Bridesmaids in shades of purple carried vibrant bouquets of pink and peach, while groomsmen in gray donned thistle boutonnières.
“The flowers were perfect! They were bright, summery shades and had unique and interesting varieties. I really wanted thistles included because they are a Scottish flower, which is my family’s heritage, and Amanda Jewel Floral + Design made it happen. They also created a beautiful altar display for me that exactly matched the design that I had in mind.”
Cameron made her way down the aisle in a custom Watters gown with a lace illusion neckline, carrying a wild bouquet of pink flowers and succulent accents. Instead of a traditional unity candle, the couple placed a bottle of wine and love notes to each other in a wooden box, which they would open on their one year anniversary to enjoy, replace and reopen every year after. The newlyweds walked hand-in-hand past family and friends, ready to celebrate the next step of their journey.
The room was flipped for the reception—another feature Cameron and Stephen loved about the venue. As guests reentered, they were greeted by a heavenly sight. Lavender linens and a rustic wooden estate table filled the open space. Vibrant floral arrangements in a variety of vases and a sprig of dried lavender tucked neatly into ivory napkins brought a hint of summer indoors. A white tiered textured cake from Cakes by Anna stood covered in blooms next to a variety of mini treats from Revolution Doughnuts, the couple’s favorite neighborhood doughnut shop. Following dinner, dessert and their first dance, Cameron and Stephen danced the night away with family and friends before making their exit. The newlyweds left the venue through a sea of bubbles, stopping for a romantic kiss along the way.
