Emily Weisbauer and Adam Gould can personally attest to the wonders of social media. Though they originally met as undergrads at the University of Massachusetts, they didn’t finally connect until much later. After Adam graduated, two years before Emily, the pair lost touch but never forgot about one another. Thirteen years after they had last spoken, Adam “friended” Emily on Facebook, something she was immediately excited about. “In college I was a member of his fraternity’s sister sorority, and I always thought he was cute,” she admits. The pair exchanged a few messages before meeting for their first date. Both knew right away that they had found something special. A short six months later, Adam moved into Emily’s apartment, and just six months after that, they were engaged. On one ordinary Saturday morning, Adam woke Emily up by sitting on the bed and saying simply, “Today is the day I am going to ask you to marry me,” and held out a ring to his prospective bride. Emily, still sleepy, was struggling to comprehend what was going on without the help of her glasses. “The first words out of my mouth were, ‘Get me my glasses!’ so that I could see what was happening!” she says. As she slipped her glasses on her face, she was delighted to see not only that Adam was holding out a gorgeous ring and asking for her hand in marriage but also that he had scattered the floor of their apartment with soft rose petals and prepared a champagne breakfast for two. Of course, she accepted.

EMILY EMBRACED A VERY CLEAN, CHIC DÉCOR STRATEGY, DRAWING A LOT OF HER INSPIRATION FROM CHINESE PORCELAIN GINGER JARS.

Emily and Adam wanted a wedding venue that reflected their shared love for the outdoors as well as for fine wines. Bedell Cellars seemed like just the place. “As soon as we drove up to Bedell Cellars, we knew that it was exactly what we were looking for!” says Emily. “The open pavilion and apple orchard were perfect for a rustic yet elegant wedding — and the wine is amazing.” Adam’s parents had spent many summers vacationing on the North Fork, and the bride and groom both agreed that it would be fun to introduce their friends to the region for a mini-getaway. In anticipation of many out-of-town guests, the couple rented a restored boathouse in Greenport for the weekend. The house proved to be the perfect gathering spot for family and friends over the course of the weekend. Emily embraced a very clean, chic décor strategy, drawing a lot of her inspiration from Chinese porcelain ginger jars. Splashes of blue and white were offset by hints of pale pink, with blushing floral arrangements nestled within blue-and-white bowls and modern,

Emily and Adam’s wedding day was magnificently bright and sunny, and the bride and groom couldn’t have been more pleased. Their photographer surprised them with an audio booth where the guests could record happy, funny, and wishful comments for the bride and groom — a great way to recapture the spirit of the day. One of Emily’s favorite moments occurred when their band sang an a cappella rendition of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” during the recessional. “It was an incredible and magical moment,” she says. The celebration was abundant with sweets, including Briermere’s pies, which proved to be a big hit with guests. “They were absolutely delicious and added to the relaxed atmosphere of our wedding,” Emily says. Every last, little touch of the celebration made the day sweet and fun as it could be. It had been more than fourteen years since Emily and Adam had first met, and finally they were married — one contract that had been signed, sealed, and delivered, indeed.

nautical-inspired stationery. As a fun way to balance the decorations with the rustic surroundings of the winery, she bathed the entire reception in a glow of candlelight and lanterns. The result was a reception that felt intimate and romantic.
