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.
“As if it were written for a screenplay, Aubrey and Andrew’s love story began by pure coincidence. While shopping at Whole Foods in Union Square, they accidentally bumped into each other over a local strawberry display. A hurried trip for groceries became a classic ‘meet cute’ when they began chatting and Andrew asked Aubrey out for a drink.”
“Casual cocktails led to a date later in the week, then a second, and then another. ‘I was intrigued by his straight forwardness,’ Aubrey says. ‘He was so easy to read, and it was refreshing’.”
“Seeking to host a beachside affair with a hint of vintage whimsy, Aubrey and Andrew knew their friend’s summer home in Quogue would be the perfect place to say ‘I do’.”
“The couple kept the design simple to allow the cozy cottage charm of the beach house to speak for itself. ‘Because the home was already perfectly decorated, we let the colors of the season dictate our design,’ Aubrey says. ‘Locally grown hydrangeas in antiqued ivory and sage hues were the source of our inspiration’.”
“Bamboo poles tied with ribbons in the day’s shades led loved ones to the celebration aglow with laid-back, seaside style. Vintage birdcages and tulle pom-poms hung overhead as guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres in lieu of a traditional sit-down feast. Loved ones danced to the tunes of a live band late into the evening, as Aubrey and Andrew set off to begin their happily ever after.”
