North Fork Backyard Wedding

Andrea & David 062114_0269editYes, this is actually a real ceremony on the dock!  And even better, it’s been the bride’s dream since she was a little girl.  Her treasured memories of playing in these waters and jumping from the dock with her three sisters made this special day that much more special.  And even cooler still, the wedding favors were jars of local sea salt made by their close family friend at North Fork Sea Salt Co.  Both the ceremony and the reception were held at family properties here on the North Fork and a delicious family style meal was served up by North Fork BBQ Alternatives.  The very talented local family trio, Points East was there to set the tone for ceremony and cocktail hour. Andrea was greeted into the reception by The Southold Fish Market with a perfectly heart shaped clam to kick the evening off!  Having planned the entire wedding from their home in California, Andrea and David were thrilled to have had so many of their friends and family together in celebration.  There were tears, laughter, and lots of kissing!  Seriously, so much love going around.  It seemed fitting that the cake (made by Andrea’s aunt) looked like something imagined by Walt Disney, because this was truly a dream come true.  enjoy a small selection of my favorites…
