New York City Wedding Venue Spotlight: The Foundry

The Foundry wedding venue is one of our favorite spaces to photograph because of the endless photo opportunities it provides. It’s a versatile venue that allows couples to share their love story in the most beautiful way. We had the pleasure of capturing the special moments from Phoebe and Mike’s wedding day at The Foundry, and it was an experience that we, as photographers, won’t soon forget.

If you’re interested in booking a Foundry wedding for your big day, read on to discover everything it has to offer.

When planning your New York wedding, choosing the right venue can feel overwhelming. The city is known for luxurious venues like the Plaza Hotel and Guastavino’s, with their grandiose ballrooms and opulent decor. While these spaces are truly spectacular, they don’t always fit the intimate feel that some couples are looking for on their wedding day.

For modern brides looking for the dream industrial-chic wedding venue, the Foundry wedding venue is a true hidden gem.

Located in Long Island City, just a short drive from Manhattan over the Queensboro bridge, the Foundry is a beautiful venue that offers a unique and unforgettable experience.

The Foundry is a truly unique NYC wedding venue that boasts both historical charm and modern elegance. The space was originally built in the 19th century and served as a steel foundry for many of New York City’s riverfront manufacturers. By the 1970s, the space was abandoned, but the incredible brickwork and industrial feel remained.

In 1980, the property was purchased by the Du Val family, who chose to restore and transform the building into the event space that it is today. Their renovation process was painstaking, taking several years to complete. They wanted to maintain the integrity and charm of the building while also making it a functional and beautiful space for weddings and other events.

The end result is a one-of-a-kind venue that has the perfect mix of old and new. The brickwork, exposed beams, and spectacular glass ceiling give the space an industrial feel, while the elegant chandeliers, chic decor, and subtle lighting create a warm and inviting atmosphere.



Built in the 19th century, The Foundry has been meticulously restored to highlight the raw, gritty industrial features and stunning character.

You must visit to truly appreciate the grandiose proportions of The Foundry. Arched brick walls, a soaring metal-beamed ceiling, and a huge skylight bring an aesthetic like no other.

During the redesign, the venue integrated some of the architectural remnants of when it was a functioning foundry into the overall design.
The combination of industrial-warehouse chic and organic greenhouse give of an ethereal vibe that’s perfect for couples who enjoy the best of both worlds.


Whether you’re looking for an indoor or outdoor space, the Foundry wedding venue has the perfect setting for your wedding. The industrial feel, exceptional staff, and stunning views make it a truly unique NYC wedding space that your guests will love.

The atmosphere is a modern New York bride’s dream, and the photo opportunities are endless. There are spaces for serene and romantic moments as well as areas that are perfect for fun and lively photos of up to 180 guests.

If you’re considering the Foundry for your wedding venue, we highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed!

Floorplan Layout Options

The Foundry offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for weddings and events. The standard 12-hour venue rental includes the Foundry Main Space, comprising the Courtyard (with the option to add a tent), the ground floor, and the mezzanine. This space is truly versatile, with brick walls, glowing string lights, and a tall glass skylight that allows natural light to flood the room. You can choose to exchange your vows outdoors in front of the sprawling ivy or in front of the large glass windows that overlook the Courtyard.

The Main Space can accommodate up to 125 guests for a seated dinner indoors, or you can choose to dine in the Courtyard, which can seat up to 165. The Courtyard is an entirely customizable outdoor space that you can make your own using rental chairs, tables, and furniture of your choosing. The entire area is covered in lush green ivy, and there’s a stunning view of the Queensboro Bridge in the distance.

There are additional event spaces at the Foundry that can be rented for a fee. These spaces include the Greenhouse, the Albra Room, the Billiards Room, the Terrace, and the Du Val Suite.
