From The Bride…When it came to planning our wedding we knew we wanted it to be a fun and intimate event that reflected our style as a couple. We grew up at the beach and wanted to incorporate the beachy elegance of The Hamptons into our wedding. After visiting East Hampton Point we knew their waterfront location was the perfect fit. We were married overlooking the water, surrounded by close friends and family, by the same judge that had married Brenden’s parents, and there was not a dry eye in the room by the end of the ceremony.

Little details were carefully planned to personalize the day. A custom laurel wreath monogram was created for our invitations and a vintage map of East Hampton was used for the envelope liner. For my something blue, I wore a vintage brooch on my bouquet that my Mother had worn on her wedding dress. We also created two signature cocktails, Little Plains Beach, the location where Brenden proposed, and Navy Beach, one of our favorite spots in Montauk.

The floral design was one of my favorite parts of wedding planning. We incorporated mercury glass vases and votives into the table design, along with pops of blush flowers to add a soft romantic feel. A handmade driftwood arbor filled with flowers created the perfect backdrop for our ceremony and fit in perfectly with the scenery.

I have been planning my wedding ever since I was a little girl and the day was everything I could have ever dreamed of and more. We were so lucky to have the help of our amazing families and vendors to make the day so perfect.

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.
