Soft blue coastal hues brought this refined Peconic Bay Yacht Club Wedding to life.
Kristen and Mat met as classmates during their days at Providence College. What began as a friendship turned into a romance when Mat expressed interest in having a deeper, more meaningful connection. The couple then began dating during their sophomore year of college. Eventually, Mat proposed at Crab Meadow Beach near the bride’s parents’ home. Once Kristen happily accepted, she was subsequently surprised with a celebration that awaited the newly engaged couple. Mat arranged a tent party on the beach by her parent’s home. All of their family and friends were awaiting their arrival to celebrate their impending nuptials.
It’s so beautifully telling of their story that their journey to be married started with a beach proposal and ended with a wedding by the sea. A wedding by the sea is often thought to be a powerful symbol of a love that endures.
Each detail of their wedding day worked to beckon the symbolism of their coastal love story, further sealing their union with the elements of where it began. From the stationery suite to the bridal party gowns; which were done in a shade of foamy sage, refined details created the elegant experience of Kristen and Mat’s wedding day. After their holy covenant of marriage at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, guests lined up outside to shower the bride and groom with love in a flurry of heart-shaped confetti. Their Peconic Bay Yacht Club wedding was made complete with a softly lit dinner, and a delicately hand-painted watercolor wedding cake. And of course, a dance floor celebration.
