Clean + Classic Nautical Wedding in the Hamptons

A day spent in the Hamptons is always a good idea. Especially when it involves a styled-to-the-nines wedding day photographed by Brklyn View Photography. Think soft and classic with a decidedly nautical vibe, not to mention the prettiest blush Weddington Way bridesmaid dresses you ever did see. Hop to the gallery for even more of this waterside love fest from start to finish.

On a perfect day in the Hamptons, Catherine and Rob were married at the Montauk Yacht Club in front of their closest family and friends. The stunning bride wore the most amazing modern elegant wedding dress from Vera Wang. The groom looked ever bit the part in his custom made tuxedo from Berel and Co. and Ferragamo velvet loafers.

Catherine and Rob have a wonderful sense of style and humor – they love to laugh and have a good time! The couple shared their first look at the Montauk Yacht Club before heading over the to the Montauk Lighthouse for epic portraits with sweeping views of the ocean. Rob gave Catherine a truly stunning wedding gift, a custom diamond necklace made with diamonds from his Mother’s wedding ring. Their ceremony took place outside on the great lawn at the Montauk Yacht Club just as the sun was beginning to set. It was an emotional, touching and joyous ceremony filled with so much love and laughter.

Guests were treated to a cocktail hour outside overlooking the bay before moving inside the Farm Ballroom for the stunning reception. Karen Lenahan Designs created a whimsical Hamptons retreat inside the ballroom with her use of greens and flowers. The Artie Stuart Band from Hank Lane Music brought the house down! Absolutely no one sat down the entire reception!

The newlyweds shared a first dance to Bruce Springsteen and danced the night away with everyone they love so much.

6 Refreshing Signature Cocktails For A Summer Wedding

Summer is the perfect season for treating your wedding guests to a refreshing signature cocktail. Whether you’re saying “I Do” on a beach, in a barn, or in your own backyard, your guests will appreciate a beverage that feels light and fresh during the warmer months! Here are a few ideas for cocktails to serve at your summer celebration.

Sparkling Spiked Lemonade

Nothing says summer like a chilled glass of lemonade, and this is one with a little extra oomph your guests will love. Simply add a dash of orange juice, a shot of bourbon, and a few fresh mint leaves to a glass of lemonade.

Cucumber Collins

“A Cucumber Collins is the perfect cocktail for a balmy summer evening,” said Alina Isambert, the president of Thierry Isambert Culinary and Event Design. “The cucumber juice, pressed in-house, is a cool, hydrating summer beverage and mixes beautifully with the other ingredients for a light, tangy, slightly sweet drink.”

The drink combines freshly pressed cucumber juice with fresh lemon and lime juice, Rosemary syrup, a dash of vodka and a garnish of mint, lemon and lime.


Tropical Rum Punch

Having a destination wedding? This smooth drink would be perfect to sip while watching a sunset on a beach!

Combine Malibu Red Rum with mango rum, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and lemonade. Garnish with some lemon peel twists or pineapple slices.


Grilled Stone Fruit Sangria

Hogan Popkess of Main Course Catering suggests this alternative to a heavy, hard booze cocktail. This Sangria has a base of crisp, dry Riesling followed by grilled peaches, apricots, and plums, peach liqueur, a splash of rum, and is finished with club soda to give it a bit of spritz. Anything fruity makes for a perfect summer drink!

French 75

Some guests will always prefer champagne at a wedding, but it’s easy to liven up the classic for a fun summer cocktail! Create a French 75 by adding a half-shot of gin, a tablespoon of powdered sugar and a dash of lemon juice. Garnish with a lemon peel. This refreshing twist on simple champagne would be a fun take for an upscale summer reception.

Bourbon Arnold Palmer

To bring an Arnold Palmer from a luncheon beverage to a wedding cocktail, just add a splash of bourbon and a splash of peach liqueur to the half-lemonade and half-iced tea drink. Arnold Palmer’s are already a great summer drink, so adding just a bit of alcohol will quench your guests’ thirst and bring the drink up a notch.

A Windswept Engagement on the Australian Coast

The recipe for a perfect engagement session? Great scenery, great style, and a whole lot of love. And having the one and only Sally Pinera behind the lens certainly doesn’t hurt, either. Take a virtual trip to coastal Australia and see how this session pulls off all of the above.

From the bride… The raw and rugged beauty of the Mornington Peninsula coast and the breathtaking sunset reminds me of the goodness and the faithfulness of our Creator God and the miracle of our lives being intertwined.

Three years ago, our paths crossed and there began a beautiful adventure – more exciting and stretching and yet more amazing and fulfilling in every sense of the word.

Jason’s quiet strength carried me through the many changing seasons in life: his love allows me to flourish and blossom in the safety of his embrace; his constant support and encouragement release me to be more than I could ever imagine and to pursue dreams that are larger than life.

As we relish and savour every moment of the evening, embraced by strong winds and warm golden light, we are so thankful for our beautiful photographer Sally and her husband, Robert who capture our joy, our love and this special season of our lives so well, but also inadvertently inspired us with their marriage and enlarged the vision for ours.

We could not think of a day more magical or more swelled with beauty.
