Real wedding: Emily + Adam

We chose Bedell Cellars in the North Fork because we wanted a venue that reflected our love for the outdoors and wine, of course. Adam’s parents have been vacationing in the North Fork for years and we thought that it would be fun to introduce our friends and family to the wine country of Long Island at what we called a “mini-destination wedding” with a weekend of events in Greenport and Cutchogue. The house we rented in Greenport was a gorgeous restored boathouse from the 1800s with huge doors at either end of the house and was a great gathering spot for the wedding party all weekend.

Fortunately, Mother Nature cooperated on the day of the wedding and it couldn’t be any more glorious! The day was perfect in every way… good food, wine, friends and The Stingers had the entire party dancing from the minute they started. I absolutely loved the “Audiobooth” — I’ve watched it over and over again! We also set up a pie bar for dessert with five of our favorite fresh fruit pies from Briermere Farms in Riverhead, which was a big hit.

A piece of advice for brides-to-be is that the bridesmaids, my mom and I were so glad we had Merrell, the make-up artist, on hand for touch-ups throughout the night. She was fabulous and I felt like a million bucks. All of our vendors were incredible. Brooklyn Bride was a great resource and inspiration during the planning.
