W+ M at The Art Factory

The Art Factory is a gorgeous raw space in Paterson, NJ with elements of exposed brick, pipes, beams, and distressed wood. Michelle and William couldn't have picked a more suitable venue that suited their personalities and styles. The couple wanted a wild, organic look to complement the raw space, and the elements of moss, jewel-toned flowers, and texturized elements translated their theme perfectly.

The intimate wedding paid homage to both Billy's Greek background and Michelle's Peruvian heritage. Michelle's family created the delicate paper decorations that were hung in the ceremony hall, and the couple were lifted up on chairs for the Greek chair dance at the reception.  There wasn't a dry eye in the room when Billy knelt down in front of Michelle's son, Kayleb, during the exchanging of vows to promise to always be there for him.
