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.
