Real Wedding: Kaitlin and Will, VII
January 15, 2009
Tri State

For those of you that are checking in on your afternoon coffee break, we are featuring the most lovely Hamptons wedding today, which was sent to us by the ever so talented Lyndsey Hamilton. Lyndsey plans events from New York to New England and back to California (and of course, everywhere in between) and her sense of style and design is always spot on. She brings the couple's life into every element, making sure that the weddings she plans are a true reflection of the couple...

This reception...sigh. It's so beautiful, it's hard for me to find the right words. It's got this effortless chic style going, with the flowers set in mason jars, the pretty silver lanterns, the craft paper menus and the sprigs of fresh rosemary. It's a little bit French country, but not too much. A little bit Anthropologie, but not too much. It's organic and fresh, it's styled but not over-styled. Love, love, love.

From Lyndsey Hamilton...

For the reception, Kaitlin and I decided upon a blue and white color palette, with beautiful blue linens and bamboo folding chairs.  We wanted the flowers to be unfussy, with each arrangement in its own unique container, ranging from antique tins to milk bottles.  Kaitlin did not want a traditional wedding cake, but rather her childhood favorite: a "fudgy-the-whale" ice cream cake from Carvel, that we topped with two bride and groom rubber ducks.  Guests also snacked on a beautiful dessert table of local pies and cookies.
