Just got these beautiful images of Katie and Paul’s Shelter Island wedding from Craig Paulson. So much better than the ones I snapped with my iphone. So intimate and personal. I can’t help but smile as I look at these….Invitation design and printing by Swiss Cottage Designs
Noticing a trend toward sassy gowns with short front and longer backs. Lots of leg and fierce heels offset by a modest neckline, as demonstrated by these gowns, below: Ashi Studio Krikor Jabotian Amal Alamuddin Cloony wearing Giambattista Valli And perhaps for the more modest bride, a nod toward a higher hemline while still keeping with more traditional modesty.
Yes, I admit it. I watch Outlander. It’s a guilty pleasure. Sue me. And Saturday, Claire and Jamie got married. Granted, I didn’t get to actually watch it until Monday. But it was worth the wait. Aside from all the sauciness, the wedding gown and ceremony were just gorgeous. Terry Dresbach is the costume designer for Outlander, and she took great care in finding a balance between historical accuracy and contemporary style. The result will, I think, introduce new fabrics […]
Lucky me, to plan Zoe and Chris’ wedding at their home in Sagaponack. As co-owners of English Country Antiques in Bridgehampton, there were so many wonderful props and accessories which infused their personal touch into every aspect of their day.

Don’t you just love the “Mr […]

Astonishingly light and incredibly flavorful. Main course was an incredible assortment to choose from; Veal Porterhouse, Steak Porterhouse, Grilled Swordfish (with mango corn salsa), bbq […]
What a glorious day! Weather could not have been better this past Saturday at the Ram’s Head Inn. Below, a few teaser images I was able to snap throughout the day. Can’t wait to see Craig Paulson’s photos…
I love road trips. Really, I do. Probably because I love planning them; deciding the best route, researching local hotels, finding interesting restaurants and off the beaten path attractions. And I especially love stumbling upon things along the way; passing by something that wasn’t even on my radar and saying “oooohhh! We’ve got to stop there!” I also love getting lost, as I have found that it often leads to the road less traveled, where only locals dare to tread. Lucky for me, my […]
