Real Wedding: Erin and Ted, III
February 13, 2009
Tri State

When I first saw today's wedding that the fabulous Kate Webber photographed, it reminded me a lot of yesterday's featured affair. It's forever fascinating to me to see how different brides translate similar color palettes and wedding styles.

Both weddings being beach inspired, elegant takes on blue hued palettes...and yet you can really see how distinct their personalities are through the details, the perfect extras that made each wedding totally unique.

Kate Webber, the photographer behind these gorgeous images has been sweet enough to stop by and share a few more of the details...

Erin and Ted wanted an intimate wedding with a hometown vibe that celebrated the natural beauty of the town where both sides of Erin’s family have lived for several generations. The couple chose September, knowing that the summer crowds would be gone and guests would be able to enjoy the beauty of the Hamptons as it is known to locals.

They decided that September 13, 2008 – three years and three days after Erin and Ted met - was the perfect date.  The couple chose a reception site with deep personal meaning- Erin’s parents’ home in Sagaponack, where her mother’s family has lived for over 100 years.

The couple also wanted to pay homage to Ted’s Alaskan roots and welcome guests making the trip from Alaska to the “Lower 48.”  Flown in from Alaska…the wedding ceremony incorporated the couple’s personal and family traditions- Rev. Norman H.V. Elliott, a close family friend of the groom traveled all the way from Alaska to officiate at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church, where Erin’s parents were wed 37 years earlier.

So much more to come!
