Elana and Greg Wedding – Ceremony Atmosphere Chuppah – Angel Orensanz Foundation – Dave Robbins Photography
After the rehearsal dinner at Beauty & Essex the evening before, BB Featured Bride Elana spent the morning of her wedding getting ready at the Ludlow Hotel Penthouse. Then it was off to Angel Orensanz Foundation where guests arrived just as autumn twilight was beginning to descend on the Lower East Side. Here, Elana talks about her and Greg’s breathtakingly personal ceremony shared before family and friends.
Ceremony & Chuppah
In addition to its high vaulted ceiling, rich ornamentation, and spellbound atmosphere perfect for hosting an important celebration, Angel Orensanz Foundation is a symbolic landmark of Jewish history and culture in New York City. “The venue was once home to various synagogues over the years, serving waves of Jewish immigrants that once called the Lower East Side home,” Elana explains. “As an ode to the immigrant generations of our family before us, we only found it befitting to have our wedding in a venue, and in a neighborhood, that represents the cradle of the American Jewish experience.” Elana and Greg were also drawn to the fact that Angel Orensanz Foundation didn’t look like a wedding venue. “An art exhibition and event space as well as one of the oldest surviving synagogues in NYC, it felt very true to who we are as a couple,” the bride says.

Nothing sets a romantic mood like candles. As the temperature starts to dip, our weddings move to indoor venues where the atmosphere is warm and lovely, but natural light may be lacking. For this reason, incorporating candles into wedding décor becomes especially important during the fall and winter seasons!

Candles come in a variety of options including pillar, taper, votive, and tea light. There are so many ways to create an illuminating display that radiates style, luxury, and romance for your tablescape. From cozy and intimate to modern chic to grand opulence, here are stunning ideas for using candles in your wedding reception décor. Read More
