This adorable bride and groom knew without a doubt that they wanted to say “I Do!” at the Old Field Club in East Setauket… and when you take one look at this amazing venue, it’s easy to see why. The gorgeous lakeside ceremony and fabulous reception space have me absolutely head over heels in love… add to that the darling details and paper goods designed by Dapper Paper, a fabulous navy blue and magenta color palette, one very stunning wedding gown and brilliant images by Shira Z Photography and you’ve got yourselves one very pretty way to spend a Thursday. I’ll be in the gallery soaking in every ounce of lovely. Join me there for even more!
From the Bride… My husband and I got married on August 19, 2011 at the Old Field Club in East Setauket, NY. The Old Field Club was the only place we wanted to celebrate our big day. The Club was built in 1929 as a swim club for residents of Old Field South. Although, it is now a tennis and beach club it still holds the same charm as it did back then.
Our wedding color palette was navy blue, gray with touches of magenta. I choose a beautiful tulle gown by Christos with crystal and pearl beaded cap sleeves. John, my husband, along with the groomsmen wore a charcoal suit with a navy/white striped tie. My four bridesmaids wore classic J.Crew dresses in navy blue and my flower girl wore an ivory dress from J.Crew, as well. Our ring bearer wore navy pants/white shirt with an adorable gingham tie from Etsy! He carried a custom pillow from Etsy with our wedding date embroidered on it.
We wanted something special for our invitations and paper design. We had an AWESOME design team, Dapper Paper customized everything from our invites, to our escort card tags, menus, table numbers, program fans and donation cards. We also had escort tags tied to adorable watering can succulents. (Also from Etsy.) The table number and donation cards rested on mini easels I bought on Amazon and spray painted white! It was kind of a pain in the neck, but well worth it! Our cake topper was customized as well. Peanut Butter Bandit (Etsy) made a cake topper of John and I and our two rescue dogs. This was probably my favorite added touch at the wedding! In addition, to keep it simple we did all baby’s breath in galvanized pails with a simple navy ribbon tied around it. We also had mini pails line the ceremony aisle and tall pitchers on the deck overlooking the Long Island Sound. We think our wedding was amazing and we hope you do, too!
