Before SoHo became a shopping mecca, its cast-iron architecture and cobblestone streets were a bohemian playground for stars of the New York’s art scene. Recently we got a peek at one of downtown’s most storied addresses, Andy Warhol’s Wooster Street Loft.
Now housing the newly-minted Soho Arts Club, this loft was once the home and studio of the famed artist. And, for one magical evening, it was the perfect venue for an intimate wedding.
We set the scene for a candlelit Jewish ceremony with an elegant, four-posted chuppah, draped with sheer ivory fabric. Each front post was adorned with a bouquet of hydrangea, garden and spray roses and phalaenopsis orchid blooms.
The lush, rounded bridal bouquet, seen above on a rustic, art-scarred table, was of composed peonies, garden roses and butter-yellow tulips with more white phalaenopsis orchids.
In an open room, lit by red murano-glass chandeliers, reception tablescapes featured romantic high centerpieces with hydrangea, garden roses, spray roses and more butter-yellow French tulips.
We hope you find this unusual venue’s history as inspiring as we did!
