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.

I’m just going to come out and say it: Private estate weddings our my weakness. Reason being? We get to see some on the most incredible homes transformed into venues and that in and of itself is totally inspiring. Add in the talented Elena Wolfe behind the lens, and well it’s downright perfection. See it all in The Vault!

From The Bride…Trey and I met in college at the University of Florida at a 4th of July get together. He was about to graduate and I was just beginning there. Our relationship continued throughout my college career. Although we were long distance, he would travel each weekend to come visit.
He proposed just before Christmas while I was working on my master’s degree. We went back and forth on what kind of wedding we wanted. We started to plan the traditional big 200 person wedding but it became just too overwhelming and stressful. We decided that wedding planning should be something we enjoy and savor since we only get to do it once and we needed to change our plans to make it something we had fun doing.
After LOTS and LOTS of ideas and consideration we were so torn – Do we elope in a fun place like Europe or a beautiful island or do invite immediate family? I spoke to my aunt who lives in Southampton and she suggested us having an intimate family wedding in her home – that way we could have the people we love most, and have it a “destination wedding” but not too far away.. We immediately fell in love with the idea and started planning from afar.
We began planning at the end of August and set our date for the 21st of November, just before Thanksgiving. While research began online and with the help of recommendations from my aunt, a local, we quickly realized we needed to schedule a trip up to the Hamptons to meet with vendors and wrap our head around all of our ideas a little bit better. We went up for a long weekend in September and met with vendors and started to put our ideas into motion. From that point on the rest of the planning was done via email or phone and it worked out perfectly!
The wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more. We got married by the fireplace in front of 16 of our loved ones. There was a lovely candle tribute to my mother who has passed away. The night included dancing, toasts, delicious food, and great conversation. It was truly the most special night of our lives. If we could do it over, we wouldn’t change a thing.

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.
