Caitlin & Mark   ♥   New York, USA

Photographer:   Kane and Social  

 

I’ve developed a real soft spot for weddings in the oh-so-desirable Hamptons of New York. They have all the cool, edgy vibes of a sleek city wedding yet they’re beachside, with the kind of raw and scenic backdrops that only come from being beside the seaside.

 

The Hamptons has long been a classic city getaway for New Yorkers and with the rise in popularity of destination weddings, this exclusive beach area and its impressive venues have been taking the wedding world by storm.

 

Caitlin and Mark tied the knot with a relaxed outdoor ceremony overlooking the gentle ocean waves before partying the night away with their gorgeous guests at a private golf club – The Bridge in Bridgehampton. All the style of the city was combined with stunning vistas of the sea to create a winning wedding combo!

Pearl & Michael   ♥   New York, USA

Photographer:   Artvesta Studio

 

If you have any concerns about it raining on your wedding day, just take a look at today’s delightful destination day in the Hamptons.

 

Pearl and Michael chose Montauk, on the eastern-most tip of Long Island in the Hamptons for their stylish soiree and they prove that the odd rain shower doesn’t need to dampen your spirits; it can instead add to the fun, be entertaining and even add a little more romanticism to your day – you get to snuggle under your umbrella with your hubby for a start!

 

A rosy red, fresh mint and pretty pink palette worked wonderfully with Pearl’s beautiful, beaded 1920s bridal look. Inspired by The Great Gatsby, Pearl and Michael certainly hosted a celebration to remember.

The Hamptons is fast becoming my new favourite destination wedding location. What’s not to love: sizzling summer sunshine, beautiful white sand beaches and laid-back luxury venues boasting stunning seaside scenery? The perfect summer wedding combo!

 

Jennifer and Leith’s Hamptons affair is overflowing with all of this delightfulness and more; their late summer coastal soiree is bright, breezy and bursting with love and merriment.

Real Wedding – Beachside Celebration In Quogue, New York

Aubrey & Andrew   ♥   New York, USA

Photographer:   Kane and Social

 

Some weddings are virtually impossible to edit. I just want to feature every, single, photo! And this seaside soiree in Quogue, New York is certainly one of those darling days.

 

Being from the UK, Quogue was new news to me. Being only 80 miles out of New York City, this charming bayside village sits in the heart of the infamous Hamptons on Long Island, Suffolk County, New York and boasting un-spoilt stretches of clear white sandy beaches, this is one fabulous destination-wedding locale.

 

It played the perfect host to Aubrey and Andrew’s relaxed marriage ceremony which is one of those infectious events that with just one look makes you wish you’d been invited. You can’t take your eyes off the fun in the photography as the personality of Aubrey and Andrew and their nearest and dearest shines through.

 

Modern vintage, quirky and cool, this day has it all, including of course an incredible ocean view locale and some seriously dapper wedding style thrown in for good measure. Oh and of course an insanely talented photography team – Kane and Social – to capture the laid-back luxury atmosphere to perfection.

 

So come and indulge in today’s beachside celebration, you’ll be inspired from the off.

Real Wedding – Empire State Elopement

Ailin & J   ♥   New York City, USA

Photographer:   Artvesta Studio

 

What a whirlwind adventure this cute couple had! Ailin and J are from Beijing in China and they decided on an Empire State of Mind elopement to NYC.

 

After seeing a photo by Tatiana Valerie of Artvesta Studio in an issue of the British Harper’s Bazaar magazine and being so inspired by the image of Olga Kvitko’s classical silk organza and French lace gown, they contacted Tatiana and asked her if she could not only photograph their elopement to New York City but also asked for her help to plan the details too.

 

Calling on friends and connections within the industry, Tatiana managed to come up trumps and 48hours later Ailin and J arrived in The Big Apple and had their City Hall wedding.   The newly weds were then taken on a tourist tour around the city that never sleeps, visiting the Top of the Rock with views of The Empire State Building, then off to the world famous Flatiron Building and of course they ended their fun-filled day with the bright lights of Times Square as the backdrop.
