When it comes to planning a wedding, couples want to choose a venue that suits their personalities. For Diana and Carlos, The Foundry in Long Island City, New York, was the perfect choice. Its combination of lush greenery and industrial-inspired lights created a warm and inviting ambiance that they wanted for their big day. The challenge was how to create an intimate atmosphere while accommodating their high guest count. In this blog, we will delve into the planning process for Diana and Carlos’s wedding at The Foundry and how the right lighting can transform a space.

The color scheme was centered around variations of grey, deep shades of blue, dark masala, and gold, which complemented the blush nicely. With this in mind, the couple needed to find a way to incorporate the color scheme into the space. This is where Universal Light and Sound came in with their lighting expertise.
Choosing the right lighting is key to creating the right ambiance in a space. For Diana and Carlos’s wedding, Universal Light and Sound provided an idea that was perfect for their vision – a canopy of lights that hung above the long barn tables. This canopy created a ceiling of light over guests, which added warmth and intimacy to the space. The barn tables were also draped with ivy, which created a modern yet rustic feel. The right lighting choice made the whole venue glow and radiate the warm glow of the guests.
