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.

East Hampton Point Wedding by Samuel Lippke Studios

East Hampton Point is one of the most classic venues, and when we see the way Samuel Lippke Studios captures its beauty with the timeless elegance and charm of these nuptials, we just melt. Complete with the Hamptons’ signature shingles and the couple’s picture perfect nautical theme, this wedding simply lights up our world.  The bride and groom’s witty way of easily blending boat shoes and sunglasses with  Jimmy Choos and white roses is just one part of this wedding that makes it downright lovable. Don’t fret, there are plenty more pictures in the gallery for you right here.

From Samuel Lippke StudiosWe loved the nautical Hamptons theme that the couple embraced so naturally. This was really a one of a kind wedding. You will love everything, from the bride’s stunning Reem Acra gown to the groom and his groomsmen’s stylish sailor garb!

From the Bride… We were married in the Hamptons — it was an easy decision as we’re both from NYC and have been spending our summers there forever. We also love boating, so the Hamptons and boating set the theme: Hamptons chic with a nautical twist.

From the bride…Ramin and I met on Easter Sunday 2002 on a Metro North commuter train from New York City to New Haven, Connecticut. I was returning from Easter brunch with my family and Ramin was returning from the wedding of a close friend in Baltimore, Maryland.  Over the next 7 years, we remained friends and dated on and off until reuniting in May 2009. In January 2010, Ramin and I planned a trip to visit his mother who lived in San Francisco. Unbeknownst to me, Ramin also planned a surprise weekend in Napa Valley, California where he proposed.  We had spent several weekends on the Eastern end of Long Island, specifically Montauk and East Hampton the summer before our engagement. We loved the relaxed and down–to-earth feeling of the seaside towns.  We knew it was the perfect location for our big day.
