Century old brick and wood, along with panoramic windows and a wrap around balcony make Bay 7 an unforgettable space. This industrial reclaimed jewel, is located within the American Tobacco Campus formally known as the home of the Lucky Strike cigarette factory.
After Jason proposed to his sweetheart Lisa, the couple knew they wanted to recreate the magic and romance of that special day with an industrial wedding.Lisa and Jason immediately fell in love with the Industrial venue at Bay 7 in Durham, NC. The couple’s main goal was to create an intimate and romantic vibe, which we accomplished by using a jewel toned color palette of ruby, opal, emerald, sapphire and gold with gardeny floral arrangements accented by Expressions of Love Florist. The rich colors were a eye-catching complement to the floor-to-ceiling brick and exposed beams of the venue.
Her vision of a jewel toned palette with gold accents would compliment the space perfectly. We added Lisa’s family heirlooms for personal details to reminded guest what this day was all about - Family, Love and Memories. A vintage type writer was proudly incorporated as the centerpiece on a favor table displaying a typed letter from the couple to the family in a 1946 type font.
The couple also had a seriously impressive favor table that displayed guest escort cards. We featured heart shaped cookies stamped in a vintage type writer fonts “Lisa + Jason” from Simply Cakes.
After searching in New York City for the perfect dress Lisa found herself with an appointment here at Alexia’s Bridal, located in downtown Raleigh. The wedding dress find was just what she had envisioned with some minor personal adjustments. It was a fit-and-flare style, with the added key hole lace back that she just loved from another gown. She decided to pair the dress with a simple half-up hairstyle with simple accessories, not to take away from the details from the dress.
We were so happy to help this couple put together the jewel toned - industrial wedding of their dreams, the photographers at Six foot photography captured every detail beautifully!
