Tatiana and Matthew had the most beautiful Hamptons wedding and the sweetest story behind why having their wedding by the water was so important to them both! Tatiana grew up sailing and spent as much time as possible on, in, and near the water. She met Matthew, a yacht captain from the Outer Banks, dockside beneath the glow of a lighthouse on a balmy Montauk night and in only a few weeks she was swept away by this man from the sea!
When Matthew proposed Tatiana knew she wanted to reference the place where it all began and their shared love of the ocean. Anna Moore of Prim + Pretty Prints used the reference of the lighthouse in a custom stationery suite. Their chic Fall wedding date allowed for moody neutral tones and sandy, muted accents. Sybille van Kempen, owner of The Bridgehampton Inn and Anastasia Casale of Sag Harbor Florist embraced their taste and created an embiance of deep plums, fresh figs, and luscious dahlias.
Tatiana & Matthew’s wedding date had deep sentimental value, as it was Tatiana’s grandmother’s birthday. So, despite cancellations, postponements, quarantine, and the unpredictability of holding a wedding–they persisted! They mentioned that they always wanted an intimate wedding and so trimming their guest list a bit more wasn’t a problem. The weather, unpredictable at best during October in New York, was dry and mild enough to open the large french doors of the historic inn and make use of the fluidity of the space. The string quartet played softly in the garden as they made our way into cocktail hour as the new Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Carter.
