From The Bride & Groom…We met in a double-wide trailer classroom when we were eleven years old. Basically, we owe East Cobb Middle School’s horrible planning a big ‘thank you’ for bringing us together.

Before you say, “awww” – we didn’t know we were completely head over heels in love with each other until we both found ourselves in New York City. In fact, we were not even friends in high school and rarely saw each other outside of class. However, any acquaintance is a friend when you move to big bad New York, so I (Blair) got back in touch with Ron when I was looking for a place to live in the city. Ron sweetly offered to show me around town, but busy schedules kept it from happening. Finally, three months after my move to NYC, I took him up on his offer. Our connection was instant & it was clear I had either met my best friend or my soul mate. Turned out to be both! After running around town together for two straight nights, we decided to take our new friendship on a date. In particular, we went on a picnic in Central Park.

We went on a picnic for our first date in Central Park. Yes, it was awesome. I even turned down free tickets to a Yankee’s game to hang out with my new crush. Fast forward five years, to Ron’s 29th birthday. Since it fell on a Monday, we decided to keep it low key and re-do our picnic in the park. OBVIOUSLY, you can see where this is going. The thing is – I DIDN’T! Sunday night before his birthday, I couldn’t sleep. It was just one of those crazy nights where sleep doesn’t happen. Unfortunately for me, Ron woke up at 8:30 ready to go! He shot out of bed (very unlike him) and begged me to just get ready so we could go to the park. I kindly reminded him that you don’t picnic before 11AM, but he couldn’t calm down. So, FINE. Who am I to ruin a birthday? I got in the shower and slowly got dressed trying to slow down this train. While I showered, he packed our picnic and slipped the ring into the picnic bag. Lucky for him, I didn’t question his work and just allowed him to pack as he pleased! As Ron will tell you, I’m not very good at letting anyone plan anything, so this was quite out of the ordinary. I must have been exhausted. Of course I said “yes” and the rest is history!

Blush and Gold Seaside Wedding in Montauk

Sequin table linens = best invention ever. And that little splash of glam is so unexpected in this Montauk affair but blends beautifully with the seaside surroundings. Lobsters and summer sequins, weathered docks and a line-up of blush peonies from Flowers By Beth.  Now that is a shindig we can get behind. Pore over the gallery of images captured by Brklyn View Photography right here.

From Brklyn View PhotographyTheir wedding is filled with wonderful fun details from the brides heart covered shoes, to gold glittered table cloths to the lobster themed corn holes.

Summer weddings out in Montauk are my absolutely favorite! The warm air, blue skies and all the flowers seem to be in bloom. For Annie and Sam, The Montauk Yacht Club was the perfect venue for their blush and gold inspired wedding in the Hamptons. Annie wore a breathtaking layered wedding dress from Lazzaro. Lots of layers of tulle with a lace bodice and removable lace straps fit her perfectly. The bride wore a small scissor pendant bracelet on her wedding day in loving memory of her grandmother who was a seamstress. Annie loves everything pink so it was only fitting to have pink accents throughout their entire wedding day. From her heart printed heels, pink invitations, floral printed bridesmaids dresses, and down to their pink signature cocktail, the happy couple left no detail to chance. Sam wore a tuxedo with a black and white polka dotted bow tie. The couple were married at St. Therese church in the heart of Montauk before heading over to the Montauk Yacht Club. Annie hand painted the lobster inspired corn hole games and lobster photobooth props. Their reception room was filled with a warm white glow to give a white wash effect inside the Farm Ballroom. Pink, coral and white centerpieces with mirrored vases decorated the two long tables. The couple loves the beach so it’s no surprise it was a big inspiration for their wedding day. Pieces of Beachwood were used as their table numbers and coral decorated their seating chart. I’m so honored I was part of Annie and Sam’s wonderful wedding day. There’s not doubt about it – He’s her lobster! Congratulations to the happy couple!!

Spring Park Wedding in NYC

For all those couples who find themselves wanting something a bit more out of the box. Or for the bride who considers her nuptials one big art project rather than a formalized affair…this wedding, sweet ones, is for you. It’s a simplified – yet totally stylish – approach to the New York affair, and Isabelle Selby captured it all right here.

From The Bride…Justin and I got engaged in Ditch Plains, Montauk, while we were out on a hike. It was the first place we had ever gone on a couples trip. It was drizzling and I didn’t feel well but he insisted we go on a hike. Needless to say, I did not see it coming and wondered why he was so nervous all day. He got down on one knee, ring in hand and just called my name, nothing else. I was too busy taking pictures of rocks to turn around but when I did, I was so shocked all I could do was cry. After calling our families, we got back to the house and celebrated with friends.

Initially I wasn’t very into the whole wedding planning process. I didn’t consider myself a “bride-y” girl. As a child I never dreamt about what my wedding would look like. So when we got engaged I didn’t know where to start. We considered eloping but couldn’t imagine not sharing such a special day with our family and friends. When we decided to have a wedding, we both knew we wanted a small gathering, only close family and friends. First thing I did was try on dresses without much expectation because I wasn’t into bridal wear. To my surprise I ended up at the perfect place because the hardest part of my dress process was choosing between Jenny Packham gowns, as all her dresses are so beautiful and so special. However after trying the dress I would eventually choose (the second dress I tried on) I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It just felt comfortable, easy.. just perfect!

Justin and I had a long engagement; we figured we’ll be married for the rest of our life’s and really wanted to enjoy being engaged. A year before our wedding we started to look at venues. The second we found New Leaf we knew it was perfect. Aside from how beautiful the Cloisters and Fort Tryon park are, I grew up playing there so it had special meaning to me. We also loved how it felt so far away from the city while still being in the city. Once we confirmed the venue, everything else fell into place. I envisioned our wedding to be effortless, elegant, simple and romantic. I really wanted the focus to be on us and our love, no other fuss.

I did a lot of research on vendors, my thing was quality over quantity. I was very specific about my vision and what I wanted. “less is more” were words I lived by, which in the wedding world can be harder than you’d think. Justin’s mom is a master gardener and tremendously creative, so she helped with so many things- from the favors (honey, candle and soap) which she handcrafted from her beehives, to the plate cards, to the arbor. As you can imagine, her garden is phenomenal. Every spring we go through her garden and pick out bouquets of wild flowers to bring back with us to the city. I really wanted our flowers to look as if they were effortlessly picked from her garden.

All in all our wedding felt like a big art project and I found myself really enjoying the planning process. I now joke that I enjoyed it so much I should change careers paths and become a wedding planner. We were so happy with all of our vendors, everyone really did a great job even when faced with every wedding day’s worst fear- rain! It stopped raining for just enough time to have our ceremony and a beautiful light cracked through the sky as we said our vows. The rain actually enhanced the mood because it gave us a beautiful, moody and romantic lighting. It was truly a magical day. We even had a rainbow to prove it!
