Married in Montauk

With their anniversary near, what better way to celebrate Hannah and Tyler with a wedding post? We did this wedding a few years ago at Gurney’s in Montauk. We overcame some weather to still have a stunning soiree for our couple. Sylvie Gil was on hand for the fabulous photos.

Lettered Olive comes through with the personalized packaging. Here, guests receive a woven beach bag with a matching Turkish towel, S’well bottle, and snacks for a beach outing. Along with, a bottle of Wolffer Estate Rosé, a popular local winemaker. And, the welcome packet was designed on little beach balls. The formal invitation suite features a simple blue and white letterpress invite, with patterned watercolor envelope liner. Also, corresponding papers feature the same palette and complimentary patterns.

Our bride gifted each maid with matching personalized pj’s. Each pair has the name stitched, so cute and sweet… And, perfect for day of photos.

Flowers are kept in a fresh white and natural greens palette, with hints of blue. Perfect for the non matching dresses which each girl got to choose. I love the “watercolor” look when they came together. Gentlemen wore soft grey lightweight suits, and fresh white oxfords with no ties.

The couple did opt for a “first look”. Which, we always love for a wedding day timeline. But, also because it allows for more time to do different types of shots and looks. And, many couples think it helps with the pre wedding jitters.

This design is one of my most favorite ceremonies ever. The wooden herringbone backdrop wall, the billowy fabric ceiling just nail the chic beach look. And, a seagrass runner lined with luscious greens and blooms add a true wedding formality.

Also, ceremony programs are pre placed at each seat, which we say just adds to a “keeping it easy” factor.

After the ceremony, guests followed a sweet pathway to cocktail hour which overlooked the beach. Also, with warm summer temps, having water readily available is key, we just make it look cute!

Here, natural rattan furniture is accented with custom made pillows, in a pattern from the wedding design. And, offering seating is a great way to cut down on lines for bars, and allow for flow throughout the space.

Then, guests make their way into a separate tented space for dinner. Shades of crisp white and blue compliment the seaside location, for example. The airy linen tablecloths add such a perfect texture for a summer event.

Also, little details here and there remind you of the beach but in a not obvious way. Love the hand painted table numbers and different types of shells. And, the smokey water colored blue drinking glasses add depth to the table. The die cut menus from Lettered Olive offer a different look on the round chargers.

Here, guests know a lovely lounge is awaiting them, but we try to keep it hidden for a big reveal after dinner. The cake is also on display, but cut by the bride and groom after dinner, and passed in the lounge. Of course, this helps get guests up and out of their seats.

After dancing the night away with friends and family, the couple held a late night party. Because, even if you don’t want the party to end, the main party should always end on a high note.
