A late summer wedding on the beach is always a delight and this wedding at Oceanbleu in The Hamptons was no exception. Getting at ready at home with her bridesmaids, Christine put on the final touches with the crisp sunshine letting everyone know this was going to be a great day. Soon we were off to the beach for a first look with Kit before their ceremony on the sand. I love the relaxed mood of weddings on the oceanfront as it feels like a great big party that happens to be a wedding.
As nice as it is to be able to use New York City as a resource for engagement session locations, I look forward to the opportunity to explore new settings. Nichole & John have family connections on the East End of Long Island so we met up on a blustery Fall day in the Hamptons with the beach all to ourselves.
Sarah & Chris’ wedding at the Barclay New York InterContinental was everything you could dream of in a elegantly appointed midtown masterpiece of a property. I have absolutely never witnessed a bridal suite like this one with its massive living space and balcony. Truly the ideal place to get ready for the wedding day.
After an intimate first look on the balcony, we walked outside to Park Avenue for a few photos before it was time to stand under the chuppah. Fleurs NYC designed the florals which ‘married’ just perfectly with the built in decor of the hotel. And of course, the show-stopping cake by Ron Ben Israel was positively covered in hand made sugar flowers. Absolutely amazing.
