For those of you that don’t know about Fred Marcus Photography, it’s one of those studios where the focus is always on the couple, always on the emotion. Capturing the simple but innate beauty of the day.The perfect details and the absolute joy behind each image. And when I saw this wedding that they recently photographed, I think that I fell in love all over again.

From the absolutely gorgeous (and by gorgeous I mean that I am a little jealous of her) bride…
We held the ceremony right in the middle of the vineyard which was such a breathtaking moment….right in the middle of the grapes! In the hours before the wedding, it poured and poured and poured, then right as I walked down the aisle the sun came out! Such a magical moment.
My gown was by Monique Lhuillier and had a beautiful ombre (gradation effect)… went from ivory to latte. An absolutely gorgeous dress. Erik wore a tux by John Varvatos, a tie by Ralph Lauren and a Vest by Duncan Quinn (who also made his cufflinks). Classic elegance.
I loved this wedding the minute I laid eyes on it. Shot by the amazingly talented team at Fred Marcus Photography, the style is all about rustic, warm elegance. With some chic thrown in for good measure.
This couple is one of those really creative, fun couples that you just know threw a pretty great wedding. Erik is a partner at Hank Lane Music (who of course did the music for the event) and Melissa works in product development for Victoria’s Secret. The wedding was held at the Wolffer Vineyard in New York.
So much more to come!
Thank you so very much to Kate Webber, the photographer who sent us today’s gorgeous wedding. Kate’s is one of those photographers that I simply adore…her work is so unbelievably elegant, so rich in emotion, in texture, in color. If you haven’t already, spend some time on her website which is filled with eye candy and inspiration.
And, a HUGE thank you to Erin and Ted for sharing their absolutely lovely celebration with us!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Have a great weekend!
If you thought that today’s featured wedding was gorgeous, feast your eyes on the reception…
From the ridiculously talented Kate Webber…
A palette of dark blue with yellow and white accents was chosen to contrast with the deep green of the lawn and to reflect the blues of the ocean and the crisp September sky in Sagaponack. Local seasonal flowers, such as daisies, sunflowers, Queen Anne’s lace and chamomile, were used throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour to create an elegant country atmosphere.
After cocktails on the front lawn, guests made their way through a path of candlelit lanterns to a wooden fence where escort cards were pinned to the center of hundreds of sunflowers specially grown for the event by a local farmer.
Inside the tent, classic navy table cloths and centerpieces of white Phalaenopsis orchids potted in silver urns provided a more formal setting for dinner and dancing. Silver lanterns suspended from above created a romantic glow. Erin and Ted paid homage to their respective hometowns by naming the tables after favorite beaches, bays and ponds in Alaska and Sagaponack.
We have one last look coming up so don’t sign off just yet!
There is something about that Hampton style that just makes me happy. It all seems so effortlessly beautiful, so picture perfect and yet totally laid back and approachable…

Didn’t I tell you that cake was gorgeous? It was crafted by Have Your Cake Ltd, and was displayed on Erin’s great-grandmother’s cake stand surrounded by wedding portraits of the couple’s parents, grandparents and siblings. Next up is the reception!
LOVING today’s real wedding sent to us by Kate Webber. It’s beachy, without being cliche. It’s romantic, it’s personal and best of all, it’s incredibly beautiful!
Wait until you see the wedding cake…maybe the prettiest detail of the entire wedding. Actually, it’s a toss-up between that fabulous dress, the woven baskets and the ridiculously gorgeous tablesettings. Coming up soon!
