Casual Hampton Bays Beach Engagement

This love sesh from Kelsey Combe Photography is a winner in my book. It’s a mash-up of a handful of personal favorites: the beach, Harpoon brews, s’mores, acoustic tunes and of course, snuggles in a cozy blanket. It’s one that’ll warm your heart and make your eyes twinkle a little brighter with love.


From Kelsey Combe PhotographyWe just love meeting couples at their engagement shoots- especially when we get to travel to somewhere very special to them. Emily & Ben spend the happiest parts of their lives on the beach- surfing, sunning, & paddle-boarding with their pup Holly. So when they invited us out to Hampton Bays for a casual, bonfire, beach engagement (complete with s’mores and beers), how could we not be thrilled? It was a cool & extremely hazy May evening and we had a wonderful time getting to know them around the fire. Emily & Ben’s love is infectious- I mean, the pictures speak for themselves. I just love the way she looks at him. And there is nothing that compares to a warm fire on the shores of the Ocean. This session feels free & crisp, like early summer, which is exactly what it was.

Glamorous Hamptons Party

A gathering of some of the Hamptons’ most talented vendors all set against the breathtaking backdrop better known as the Wölffer Estate: this, my loves, is one seriously awesome party.  It’s the gorgeous stylings of Sofia Crokos and Roy Braeger with yummy treats from Sonnier & Castle and one stunning image after another from Belathee Photography.  See them all here.

From Belathee Photography… On July 19th, the Hamptons was treated to a special evening celebrating the elite talent that makes events on the East End so legendary. The most in-demand local vendors in event design, along with taste-making leaders in interior design, real estate, restaurateurs, and the social scene, gathered at Wölffer Estate Vineyard to welcome the newest talent to make a permanent home out east, event planner Sofia Crokos. In addition, a select group of vendors, including Sofia, were asked to personally shape the evening’s experience.  Creating “An Evening Of Visual Splendor,” invitations hinted at the celebration to come with shimmering summer tones and a playful circular design, courtesy of Red Bliss Design. Wölffer Estate was transformed into an enchantingly elegant space, where Sofia, along with event designer Roy Braeger played up the vineyard’s natural charm with billowing flags, studded lights, and vibrant tones of turquoise with glittering gold accents. Luminous Designs provided a lighting display that conjured a reflection of the starry night sky. Caterer Sonnier & Castle designed a colorfully seasonal menu from ingredients sourced from local farms. The entertainment, designed by Elan Artists, featured a lively French Jazz ensemble, complete with dancers. Guests toasted the night with a selection of wines from Wölffer Estate, along with custom cocktails from Pavan Liqueur and Avion’s Espresso Tequilla. Belathee Photography captured the evening’s most memorable moments.

Shelter Island, New York Wedding from Kate Osborne Photography

The images sitting in this gallery from Kate Osborne Photography are nothing short of art. Beautiful works of art that left me speechless and aching for more from the moment I laid eyes on them. There simply aren’t words pretty enough to describe how I feel about just how gorgeous this seaside soiree is, but you can see for yourself right here.

From Kate Osborne PhotographyNadine and David had a beautiful beachside wedding on Shelter Island New York. Nadine and David had friends and family fly in from across the world from England and Brazil to celebrate with them. Nadine is from England with a Chinese/American heritage and David grew up all over the globe. They met in the states and decided to have the wedding in the beautiful Hamptons. The night was filled with a mix of culture, languages, food and celebration. It was a simple yet beautiful day as friends and family all gathered together on this charming island to celebrate such an amazingly kind and beautiful couple.
