Says the bride, “The church ceremony was light and loving and in memory of my father. We walked down the aisle to ‘All You Need Is Love’ by The Beatles. Our dachshund Balloon waited in the Oeuf, our little yellow 1957 Isetta, and joined us on the trip back to the house for the reception.”

The bride’s mother wore an emerald green gown, echoing the color of the groom’s custom linen bow tie.

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  My parents were married here 30 years earlier. It is such a beautiful spot on the point with incredible water views. The house is where my mother and her siblings grew up and it has such history.

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  We wanted the weekend to feel full of tradition but with a relaxed air. A mix of the classic and the bohemian.

What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  It’s hard to pick one thing. The dramatic weather. From the moment we woke up the skies were a mix of bright September sunlight and dark gray and blue cumulus clouds. There was a breeze and it felt like the calm before the storm all day. It didn’t rain until very late at night when the DJ was playing on the patio and we all went outside and danced in the rain. During the day the girls spent time getting hair and makeup done while the boys when swimming in Oyster Bay. It was a relaxed day and so fun to be in a house full of your best friends.

What was the best advice you received as a bride?  To relax and smile – you have done all the work and now it is time to enjoy the day. Things will go wrong but by the time they do it will not matter.

What advice do you have for other brides?  After the ceremony you should take a moment alone with your husband to let it all sink in. All the months of planning you have done is now unfolding before you and it’s time to enjoy being together with family and friends and being married!

Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  Our first dance was You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne and then we had the band invite everyone to the dance floor for September by Earth, Wind & Fire which really set off the night right because it was the 21st night of September and the last day of summer. There was a harvest moon that night and it was at eye level glistening over the water while we were seated for dinner.
