From the planner… Bonnie & Michael’s Summer wedding at the Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack was absolutely gorgeous.  Wolffer Estate’s back patio is amazing in that it bridges the gap between inside and outside creating a seamless experience for guests.  Whites and greens were a counterpoint to the surrounding grape vines ready to burst for harvest while long tuscan style tables added a bit of rusticity.  Ample candlelight set a warm mood and allowed for photography to continue unobtrusively as the sunlight faded away.  Bonnie wore Reem Acra and Michael wore a bespoke Seize sur Vingt tuxedo with white jacket.  To cap things off, Bonnie changed in to her mom’s Chinese wedding dress to dance the night away.

A Romantic Seaside Wedding for University Sweethearts

My favorite kind of wedding doesn’t rest on one style, one detail, intimate or grand… no, it’s a setting. And that setting is seaside time and again (I’m a little biased, yes). That’s exactly why this coastal fete from Charlotte Jenks Lewis gets my heart a racing. The tented reception thanks to Stamford Tent & Event Services is something out of a dream and when you’ve got portrait backdrops like this and a sweet film from eMotion Pictures, nothing can compare.

From the Bride… Our love story began when we met at Miami University of Ohio, at the age of 20. The relationship blossomed, visiting each other over the summers, getting to know our respective close knit families and friends from home, and even included a romantic Paris trip during Pat’s junior semester abroad. I grew up in New York, and Pat in Michigan. With graduation approaching, he took a job in Manhattan while I lined up a job in the area, and we were ecstatic about the beginning the next phase in our relationship. Looking back, I think it was really a turning point. Seven years after our first meeting, Pat proposed at my family’s lake house in New Hampshire with both sets of our parents there to celebrate.

Planning a wedding is an exciting time but it can also be stressful while working, navigating expectations, communicating combined family members, while all the while working through multiple decisions and logistics. My advice to all the brides-to-be is to enjoy every moment, keeping the little things in perspective and making the important decisions in a fun, flexible and collaborative way. I enjoyed the special expeditions with my mom, the times celebrating with friends and the comical dance lessons with my soon-to-be husband. There is a point when all the parts start to come together and you realize the real purpose of the planning. It goes very quickly, but it’s all part of building a life together.

When planning our wedding, we wanted something that reflected our personalities. We chose to get married on the water in Rye, a place where I spent many of my summers and Pat quickly developed a connection to. We chose natural but elegant décor. Lots of greens, whites, and pastels filled our wedding tent set on the Long Island Sound. We were lucky to have one of the most spectacular days of the summer for the wedding day. The water was sparkling, the breezes were gentle and the sun was glistening. Pat and I shared our first dance, touched by a sense that the perfect weather was a special marriage blessing and beloved friends and family encircled us with a breathtaking sunset in the backdrop.

Everyone always says that your wedding day is the most amazing day of your life, and trust me, it exceeded all expectations. Our favorite part of the day was having everyone we loved in one room. It is so overwhelming to see that many people come together, from different stages of your lives, and know that they are there to support you in your marriage journey for many years to come.

Co-Founder of Birchbox Says I Do in Seriously Gorgeous Style

I love the overall vision this Bride & Groom had for their Big Day: to throw a big dinner party for close friends and family. Because sometimes the jumping off point of inspiration isn’t about the details, it’s about the vibe. And then the details just fall into place so, so beautifully. Not to mention, this glowing Bride is the Co-founder of Birchbox, so of course, she looked effortlessly gorgeous. Ready for more? See all of Mark for Trent Bailey Studio‘s captures in The Vault.

From the Bride… Our overall vision was to throw a big dinner party for close friends and family. We planned a wedding weekend, with the Arnold House as our home base. It’s a 10-room Catskills hotel that has been renovated to look very Ace-y and owned by a super cool couple who lives part time in Manhattan. Our family stayed there and we also had a Friday night welcome party in their barn and a casual Sunday brunch there (we couriered Peter Pan doughnuts and Bien Cuit croissants from the city!). The actual wedding was at East Hill, about 6 mi away. The same couple who owns the Arnold House has a 60-acre property that includes a modern pool area (where we had our cocktail hour) and a container house (where we stayed). We wanted it to be a low-key weekend of activities in a gorgeous upstate area: hiking, distillery tours, yoga at the Arnold House. 

My hair was by Jeff Chastain, and makeup by Nam Vo. It was amazing to have friends—people I’ve known and worked with for over five years—do my hair and makeup. I trusted them to make me look like myself, only better. We didn’t have a bridal party, just Rob’s best friend Julian and my sister Annie, but we had our friends and family participate in other ways. Our officiant was our dear friend Nate Rogers. We put the ceremony together ourselves, and asked friends and family to do readings from Madeline L’Engle, George Saunders, and a Brooklyn poet named Robert Hershon. Our ceremony was in a wide-open field, then we walked up to the pool area for cocktails, then reception under a tent.

Poppies & Posies did a spectacular job with our florals. I wanted seasonal, not too girly—an undone organic look but not hippie. They nailed it and were a dream to work with. Rob designed all our printed materials (though my best friend and Birchbox cofounder Hayley did the menus!), and we had them printed by our longtime Birchbox printer Tazo at 4over4. Then we roped in another friend, Allidah, to write our escort cards, which hung on the fence at cocktail hour. It takes a village.

Food was a huge priority for us! We worked with Oliver Kita, an incredibly skilled caterer to create a big, happy dinner party. We designed a menu that felt like something we would do at home (obviously not at this scale or all at once). For cocktail hour, we the Italian aperitivo hour tradition so we had an entire bar of negronis and spritzes and a giant wooden table piled with charcuterie and mostly local cheese. There were other delicious snacks like radishes with local butter, and deviled eggs because Rob loves them. Dinner was family-style and, again, foods that we would make ourselves: steak with chimichurri sauce, roasted vegetables, great crusty bread. My parents sourced 20 vintage soda bottles that we filled with olive oil for the table and my dad personally hemmed and folded all the napkins. Oliver made us a naked wedding cake that I swear tasted just like birthday cake, plus homemade mallomars as a party favor. We were also lucky to have the Doug Winters Band keeping everyone on the dance floor. Rob had seen this band at a wedding in 2009, where he danced so much he sprained his ligament. Our first dance was to Jackie Wilson’s “Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher.”

My dress was by Roland Mouret. I wanted something modern and simple but with pretty details. My shoes were by Jimmy Choo. Rob wore a made to measure suit by Monsieur Brunold and shoes by Church’s.
