Angel Orensanz is a gothic cathedral located in lower Manhattan. In its heyday, the building served as a house of worship, but the now gutted temple is used as a raw event space. For their wedding, the bridal couple wanted to create a magical winter white environment. Inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia, Swank created a fantasy winter wonderland. As snow machines 'snowed' over the ceremony guests, oversized wrought iron gates, white birch branches, and alabaster ostrich feathers created the feeling of an enchanted forest. The tablescapes evoked the look of a freshly fallen snow by incorporating gleaming white elements while washes of ice blue lighting intensified the effect. Hundreds of hanging white votive candles thawed the chill by creating a warm, inviting glow. A vintage inspired motif of the couple’s silhouette was carried throughout the design and décor including the wedding cake.
