From The Bride...From the moment Sean and I met in the Spring of 2010, we were inseparable. Sean always joked about how he was never getting married, which made it the ultimate surprise when he popped the question while on vacation in Mexico 3 years later. I was overjoyed knowing that I was marrying the most amazing man I've ever met.

As far back as I can remember, I've always known I wanted to capture the beauty of old Long Island in my wedding; there is something about the mystery and grandeur of the historic mansions that is truly mesmerizing. Sean and I fell in love with the Village Club of Sands Point from the moment we drove up to the entrance. The Italian Renaissance style mansion is filled with so much character and history, it was the perfect hidden gem, exactly what we envisioned for our wedding. We wanted our wedding to be classic and timeless and thanks to all our wonderful vendors, our dream became a reality.

Surrounded by family and friends, we exchanged vows at the Garden City Community Church on September 6th, 2014, one of the best moments of my life. Following the ceremony, we had a tented cocktail hour on the sprawling back lawn of the Village Club, complete with a cigar roller and pianist. It was important to us that our guests felt relaxed and could take advantage of the views and warm September weather. For the indoor reception, we kept our decor simple with seasonal florals, tapered candles, and ivory linens to compliment the beauty and original detailing of the rooms. From the live music to the delicious food, we couldn't have dreamed of a better beginning to our new life together.
