Intimate Wedding in the Hamptons at Trumpets

So I don’t even know these two dapper gents, but after spending my morning swooning over their engagement session and my afternoon swooning over their wedding, I’m pretty sure I love them (hope that’s ok guys). Because not only do they have serious style, but I can feel the love pouring out of every gorgeous image from A Guy + A Girl Photography , and that makes me weak in my wedding-loving knees. See more of their stunning day here.

From A Guy + A Girl Photography …Jason + Nick’s intimate wedding was nestled in the beautiful and fabulous Hamptons. Their coordinating suits were custom-made by Brooklyn tailors. Nick’s grandmother baked bowtie cookies, iced with the couples’ wedding colors that were found throughout the wedding weekend. Rebecca Shepherd florals warmed up their waterside ceremony and the cozy indoor reception. Their first dance was a show-stopping number, choreographed by Jason (a broadway industry exec and musical theater-enthusiast), himself and the duo had clearly rehearsed to perfection. It was not only entertaining and impressive, their dance was one of the most memorable moments of the entire celebration.

From Khaki Bedford Photography… This is a beautiful fall wedding of a surfer/chef and his bride in East Quogue, New York. Before joining himself in marriage to Briana, Scott’s last bachelor acts were the exilaration of surfing the waves in the early morning and using his chef skills to grill for the wedding party and vendors. Prior to the ceremony, the couple’s first look involved a surf board followed by family portraits on the beach. Their love of the sea was further evidenced in the nautical navy blue and white color scheme and the oceanside setting for their exchange of vows. Pops of hot pink were found throughout the wedding from Briana’s gorgeous bouquet, to the groom’s socks, to the table centerpieces, to the sailboats and anchors printed on the escort cards. The reception began with a raw bar of oysters, shrimp, and sushi, followed by dinner and a night of dancing and celebrating. A gelato truck ended the night with special treats for all. The guests wished Briana and Scott smooth sailing ahead!

Glamorous East Hampton Wedding

As a West Coaster, I’ve never actually ventured to the Hamptons (I know, it’s a total travesty), but judging from this gorgeous Montauk affair, it’s exactly where I want to get married.  Because if my wedding day is even one tenth as glamorous and gorgeous as this stunning day is, I’ll consider myself seriously blessed. See it all captured beautifully by Jonathan Young Weddings right here.

And a beautiful film from Tweed Weddings… amazing.

From the Bride… For years Montauk has been our favorite place to escape to. We live in Manhattan but find ourselves venturing out there as often as we can. Having vacationed there for many years with his family, Richie introduced me to “The East End” the first year we started dating and I was immediately smitten. There is something about being out east, especially on the cliffs of Montauk, that makes you feel as though you are at the end of the earth. It’s awe-inspiring and magical.  Richie proposed to me at the base of the cliff at Montauk’s lighthouse. So when the time came to start planning our wedding, we knew “The East End” was the perfect spot — we felt like it represented us equally and we were eager to share such a special place with our family and friends.

Our wedding ceremony was held at St. Therese of Lisieux in Montauk, a beautiful airy church that overlooks both the village of Montauk and the ocean. Our reception was held in East Hampton at really neat venue, East Hampton Point. Originally East Hampton was not at all part of our plan, but that quickly changed with our first visit to EHP – it was the perfect space and captured just what we were looking for. Its chic and timeless, yet modern, and provides just the right dose of nautical charm. We couldn’t have wished for a better venue or setting.

Since not only the reception venue, but our entire wedding weekend was basically set on the water, I didn’t want to play into the nautical theme too much – it spoke for itself. Instead I opted to keep our overall vision classic with tiny touches of glamour strewn throughout. I wanted it to have the look and feel of a true affair. It all came together seamlessly thanks to our wonderful vendors, all of whom I cannot speak of highly enough!

Planning a wedding without a “planner” or “day-of coordinator” can definitely be tricky, stressful and often very overwhelming. Thankfully our families and friends were very helpful throughout the entire process. Some of my favorite details were the most personal. My mom hand-wrote the calligraphy for our invitations, place-cards and other paper goods. My parents created a Gaelic inspired wedding sign (a nod to both of our Irish heritages) to help our guests find their way, and many endless hours of ribbon tying, letter stamping and other personal touches were generously donated by our families and a few close friends.

The day itself could not have been more spectacular. The weather cooperated, our mass was beautiful (a personal family friend presided over our vows), and our reception was a complete blast.  The dance floor was packed throughout the night, which is exactly what we was hoping for, the food was unbelievable and toasts so full of love and laughs. What was most remarkable however, was the fact that the most special people in our lives were there for us in that one place – a rarity that we will always treasure. There is only one thing I would change. If I could, I would have the day last twice as long. It truly was THE. BEST. DAY. EVER.

Pink + Purple Wolffer Estate Vineyard Wedding

When your engagement story starts with seeking shelter from the rain in a Tiffany’s, the act that follows is bound to be romantic and beautiful, and this wedding was. With Brian Dorsey Studios on the job, every single image is perfection embodied, and we’ve put everything from the Village Invites to the glowy exit, in this beautiful gallery!

Vineyard

From the stunning bride… Dan and I began dating in 2007 as University of Virginia undergrads, and in 2012, during a rainy July weekend in East Hampton, we dashed into Tiffany’s to escape a downpour — and who could resist trying on engagement rings? Dan observed I loved the round solitaires and discreetly noted my size. One month later, over drinks in Madrid during our August vacation, he pulled the perfect ring from his pocket and popped the question, receiving a resounding “yes”!

Now the hunt was on for the ideal wedding venue. When we toured Wolffer Estate in Sagaponack, NY, a working vineyard with a stylish tasting room, we saw it had the very atmosphere we wanted for our wedding: rustic and relaxed, yet beautiful and elegant.

One year later, on September 21, 2013, Wolffer provided the perfect setting for our big day. The late afternoon ceremony was in the vineyard, with clusters of ripe grapes hanging on the vines; this was followed by a cocktail hour on the adjacent lawn, where guests sipped Wolffer’s Cabernet Franc and a string quartet played Sinatra classics; supper was served on the open-air veranda, followed by dancing in the Italianate tasting room, to pop tunes spun by our terrific DJ, Ray Jarrell.

Our design decisions for the event were inspired by Wolffer’s glorious fall beauty. Jeff Pennington of Southampton NY was our floral designer, and his arrangements reflected the lush ‘Indian summer’ feeling of Wolffer in late September. The flowers included dahlias, scabiosa, calla lilies, and orchids in brilliant wines and purples offset with blue and green; these were flanked on the tables by compotes of pears, figs and tiny green tomatoes; and he placed trees hung with candles in amber glass pendants in the tasting room. I picked Vera Wang’s “Diedre” wedding dress, because its jagged organza ruffles had a country-chic vibe, and the spiced wine bridesmaids’ dresses stood out dramatically against the dark green vines. Lighting designer Matt Murphy installed wrought iron chandeliers on the veranda and lights that shimmered in the vines after sunset.

We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful event planner, Jill Gordon, who helped create the rustic yet elegant feeling we wanted. For the wedding supper she helped me choose gold-rimmed formal china and crystal, rich golden napkins, and dark purple menus with gold calligraphy, which contrasted with the roughhewn farm tables, burlap table runners, and craft place cards tied with raffia and rosemary sprigs. Calligraphied silver gray escort cards were placed on garden stakes in Jeff Pennington’s pave arrangement of jewel-colored hydrangeas, and the thick creamy icing of caterer Fresh Flavors’ carrot wedding cake was adorned with simple spider plants. Jill set up fun photo booth accessories, a basket of pashminas, and a late night Hamptons Popcorn bar, and she provided guests with wands of streamers to wave us to our vintage silver Rolls getaway car. Our good-bye gift for guests was a half-bottle of Wolffer Chardonnay.

It was amazing to have all our family and friends share our wedding celebration, and we felt photographer Chris Owyoung, of Brian Dorsey Studios, completely captured our joyous mood. The one thing we couldn’t have arranged in advance was the full harvest moon that hung in the sky over Wolffer that night, providing a perfect end to an incredible day.

From Melani LustI have for you a fresh, sunny wedding in a venue in the Hamptons, not often used for weddings: Wolffer Estate Vineyard. The bridesmaids got ready in crisp, white shirts, each with a personalized monogram. The bride wore a regal Romona Keveza dress, which took everyone’s breath away. Then, she slipped in to a fabulous reception shift. The bride and groom exchanged vows in a charming and quaint Bridgehampton church before heading to the venue in a classic antique car. This wedding is filled with candid moments and soft pink details. The light in the vineyard was particularly amazing and shifted each hour.

From the Bride… As soon as we were engaged on the beach in Sagaponack, we knew that an East End wedding was a must. My family has spent over 40 years on the east end and was excited by our choice. We were so excited to have Melani Lust as our photographer to capture the sheer beauty of what was a picture perfect day with a crystal blue sky, a purple twilight and clear spring evening.

While planning our wedding we wanted our guests to feel as if they were at a classic, elegant dinner party followed by a late night dance party. Wolffer Estate proved to be the perfect setting and backdrop for our magical day. As soon as my husband and I arrived at Wolffer Vineyard on our wedding day, we were overhwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the venue. Tabletops of peonies and hydrangeas combined with gold mercury votives and set against the sage custom runners were the delicate tabletop touch we had envisioned. We had Wolffer install chandeliers which were then hung with greenery to give an even more gentle and ethereal green touch. Our florist Jeff Pennington had gone beyond any expectations!

Upon arrival guests were greeted with a welcome cocktail of Wolffer’s famous Rose. Southsides were also served from a mix handmade by my husband and delivered to the venue early the morning of the wedding. Guests were able to stroll the vineyard while sipping a cocktail and indulging in fabulous hors’ douveres. Our band Code Bleu was one of our favorite parts about the wedding. They kept everyone rocking all night long and allowed us to have the dance party we had hoped for! The outdoor bar in the vineyard was another aspect that we loved, as we could mingle with guests among the vines and enjoy the fabulous night sky.

One of my favorite aspects of our wedding was my dress. Originally not what I had in mind at all, I traveled to a bridal salon to try on a dress my maid of honor had found over a year before! After realizing it wasn’t the dress for me and about to leave, I caught my Ramona Kevecza dress out of the corner of my eye. As soon as I put it on, I realized I had found it. I absolutely adore the fact that it was completely different from any dress I had seen in any magazine, or on any bride I had EVER seen. It completely reflected the classic elegance I was aiming for. I truly believe that the dress I chose illustrated the sheer timelessness of our whole wedding!
