Caitlin and Greg's wedding was designed to be a wedding on the beach, that was not a typical "Beach Wedding" with seashells and seaglass everywhere. The Creek Club in Locust Valley, is a members only Country Club that has a beautiful clubhouse that we actually did another wedding at in 2015, as well as a seaside beach house, that is more of a modern building with nice clean lines and a light, bright and airy feel.
As an event planner herself, Caitlin wanted to be a big part of the design decision-making process, and knew exactly what she wanted. We combined our creative vision board based on all the things we knew that the couple loved along with her vision, and loved every minute of producing all of the custom details using her bright punchy color palette! These bold hues of pomegranate, coral, fuchsia, and indigo blue blended perfectly with the beautiful soft palette of the mix-and-match bridesmaids gowns, and classic black tuxedos of Eric and his Groomsmen to create this one-of-a-kind beauty of a wedding.
We teamed up with Essence of the Garden Floral Boutique to create all of the lush florals, with alternating large arrangements, and bud vase clusters on the reception tables. The Ceremony was donned with floral and greenery in every corner, as well as the beautiful pop of color from paper fans to help guests feel cool in the summer heat.
One of our favorite elements of this wedding was the Escort Card Display that we made out of old-fashioned style heating grates that we spray painted Gold, and framed out with wooden fence pieces that we decided to paint white. We hand painted every single card with custom mixed water color paint and flicked specks of 14K Gold on each, to make sure that each one had it's own unique look! To complete the look, we dressed the setup with some of the bright florals including red anemones, ranunculus, garden roses and peonies, and pulled them thru the grate so it looked like they were growing thru everywhere.
Tim and his team at EIN Photography captured the day perfectly for the couple including the UNREAL Sunset that stole the show at one point (only for a few minutes!), and Michael at Palette Films was able to produce an incredible highlight video for them that captured the organic emotion and warmth of the day.
