for us, fall and winter’s most magical moments are the ones that evoke the essence of the season. as we sip cups of cocoa and watch the swirling leaves change to snowflakes outside our office windows, we make note of the colors, knowing that they’ll inspire the palettes in our pages. in fall, we watched transfixed as poppy-orange leaves blazed against a cloudless azure sky, the same bold combination you see in “under autumn’s awning” page [?0]. still-hot slices of apple pie and mugs of mulled cider, crunching leaves, and bushels of blushing apples come to life in “flush of romance” page [0/]. “forever green” page [%.?] captures the promise of spring that lies hidden in the soul of winter pines. the glittering wonder of the first snowfall is the icy inspiration for “white-washed in love” page [J=]. let these palettes inspire you as you hone and focus your ideas to create your own enchanted wedding wonderland.

wellwed, we have a passion for heirloom accents and details that reflect your history here and your passions, and we think these cuddle-up-inside days are the perfect opportunity to brainstorm special touches of your own. here’s hoping your love and our pages inspire you to create a celebration that’s everything you’ve dreamed of.

THE NORTH FORK, WITH ITS ABUNDANCE OF WINERIES & APPLE ORCHARDS, FELT LIKE THE IDEAL DESTINATION FOR LESLIE & BEN’S FALL WEDDING. LESLIE’S EAST END ROOTS MADE THE LOCATION SEEM EVEN MORE LIKE HOME.

BEFORE THE RING.

Leslie Miller and Ben Wellington have New York University and music of the Counting Crows to thank for their first meeting. While studying at NYU, Ben often spent afternoons in Washington Square Park playing guitar. Leslie, a tour guide for the school, concluded her tours in the historic park. One day, Ben was strumming “Goodnight Elizabeth” by the Counting Crows, a favorite song of Leslie’s. “After he finished, I asked to borrow a piece of paper,” Leslie says. “I wrote down my number and walked back to the admissions office. We started dating soon after.”

! "# $0M


leslie + ben

NOT WANTING TO ADHERE TO A SPECIFIC PALETTE, LESLIE & BEN USED A PATCHWORK QUILT AS THE INSPIRATION FOR THEIR WEDDING DESIGN. THEIR DAY WAS FULL OF MISMATCHED WONDER, PATCHED TOGETHER FOR A QUAINT YET COHESIVE CELEBRATION.

THE PROPOSAL. For Ben’s thirtieth birthday, Leslie planned an elaborate

“food tour” through Brooklyn and Queens. Before heading out to meet friends, Ben asked if Leslie would mind stopping by Washington Square Park. They ended up on the bench where they first met, and after a few moments, Ben told Leslie to look behind her. And there it was, a plaque that read: “Ben and Leslie, met here in 2003, engaged here in 2011, to be continued...” Ben then got down on one knee with a little black box that held his great-grandmother’s engagement ring. THE WEDDING WEEKEND. The couple wanted to share the inherent charms of the North Fork with all of their loved ones. “When we imagined our wedding, we kept coming back to this idea of our friends and family staying in rented houses with us to celebrate the wedding for more than just the weekend,” Leslie says. Leslie and Ben organized a wine tour and spontaneous day at an apple orchard for their guests to showcase the best of the area. “We wanted a location with an authentically rustic feel, and the rural character of the North Fork fit the bill,” Leslie explains.

THE DAY & DESIGN. Among seasonal decor consisting of hay, fresh apples, and gourds, Leslie and Ben set the mood with an original selection of antique props and family heirlooms. “We chose a variety of different vintage fabrics for our napkins, adorned the tent with different quilts—one for each bridesmaid—and had ball jars filled with local wildflowers,” Leslie says. In addition to the delightfully homespun look of the reception, Leslie and Ben enchanted guests with a playful candy bar and post-dancing snacks of donuts and hot apple cider. 6789:;7<$=7<<>?@$A;B67CC>B?8DC PHOTOGRAPHY: SCOTT CLARK PHOTOGRAPHY [SCOTTCLARKPHOTO.COM] ADDITIONAL CONTACTS: ACCOMMODATIONS: CHERRY LANE FARM / BAR SERVICE + CATERING: MAPLE TREE BBQ COORDINATION: PALADIN EVENTS / ENTERTAINMENT: URBAN ACOUSTIC / EVENT RENTALS: TGIF RENTALS FLORAL DESIGN: BRIERMERE FARMS + HARBES FAMILY FARM / GOWN: MICHELLE NEW YORK / HAIR: JESSICA PINEDA / LIGHTING: FRILL STUDIOS / LINENS: SOPHIA SUNDRIES / MAKEUP: BEAUTY MAKEUP ARTISTRY BY ARIANNE / PAPER GOODS: HOM SWEET HOM / PIES: BRIERMERE FARMS / RECEPTION SITE: HALLOCKVILLE MUSEUM FARM / REHEARSAL DINNER: CLAUDIOS RESTAURANT / SHOES: SOMETHING BLEU / SUIT: J CREW TRANSPORTATION: HAMPTONS JITNEY + HALLOCKVILLE MUSUEM FARM / VEIL: DESIGNER LOFT NYC / WEDDING REGISTRY: ANTHROPOLOGIE + BROOKLYN KITCHEN

MARTHA CLARA VINEYARDS OFFERED KATIE & JOE EVERYTHING THEY WANTED FOR THEIR WEDDING DAY. “AS SOON AS WE WALKED INTO THE SPACE, WE KNEW IT WAS A BLANK CANVAS THAT WAS READY TO BE MADE OUR OWN,” KATIE SAYS.

BEFORE THE RING.

Though they were both students at the University of Delaware, Katie Frey and Joe Cushing didn’t meet until the spring semester of their senior year. The two had a class together, and Joe couldn’t help but confide in a friend about his crush on Katie—a girl he’d never formally met or spoken to. Serendipitously, Joe’s friend knew Katie and arranged an introduction on St. Patrick’s Day. “Maybe it was the luck of the Irish, but we were immediately drawn to each other,” Katie says. When Katie moved back to New York after graduating, the couple continued a long-distance relationship for three years before living together in Delaware.

katie + joe

AIMING FOR A RUSTIC AMBIENCE ALIVE WITH HOMESPUN CHARM, KATIE & JOE JUXTAPOSED GRAND ANTIQUES WITH HANDMADE DÉCOR DETAILS & LOCALLY GROWN FLOWERS. THEY USED THEIR WEDDING AS A WAY TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVE SIDES & TO COLLABORATE WITH EACH OTHER.

THE PROPOSAL. Katie and Joe spent Labor Day weekend with her family

THE DAY & DESIGN. Both enamored with thrifted treasures and

on Long Island. The couple had recently added a new puppy to their life and loved playing outside with her. “One day, we woke up early and took the puppy to a nearby park for a morning walk,” Katie says. “We walked through the trails and came to a field of sunflowers. In the middle of the field there was a beautiful clearing, as if it were made for a romantic proposal.” Almost as soon as that thought entered Katie’s mind, Joe was down on one knee.

heirloom aesthetics, Katie and Joe exercised their design sensibilities when planning their nuptials. The crafty couple painted their dinner menu on repurposed windowpanes, displayed hand-calligraphied place cards, lettered by Katie’s mother, on an antique shutter wall, and created their own table marker signs. “For us, wedding planning was not a stressful experience at all,” Katie says. “It was an opportunity for us to bask in creativity, and to dream up a perfect day to celebrate the love that we were so blessed with.”

THE CEREMONY. Wanting to give their intimate vineyard ceremony a

distinctly personal feel, Katie and Joe took their vow exchange very seriously. Joe hand-built the arbor that he and Katie said “I do” beneath, and the pair wrote their vows together. “"We said the same vows, but each made small changes in the wording to emphasize each other’s differences," Katie says. "We wanted the ceremony to be modern, but to still incorporate religion into it." Complete with several meaningful readings and blessings, Katie and Joe’s ceremony was as touching as it was unique.

THROUGHOUT THEIR RELATIONSHIP, JESSIE & JON ENJOYED WEEKENDS AT JESSIE’S MOTHER’S BRIDGEHAMPTON HOUSE. WHEN IT CAME TIME TO CHOOSE A WEDDING DESTINATION, THE LAIDBACK & LOVELY HAMPTONS TOWN WAS THE OBVIOUS CHOICE.

BEFORE THE RING.

While seniors at Columbia University, Jessie Handbury and Jon Rubinstein were fortunate to be introduced by a mutual friend. Their good luck was short lived, however, as their relationship began at the end of the school year. Shortly after graduation, Jon moved to New Orleans for law school, while Jessie stayed in New York City. Jon was back in the city that spring, visiting Jessie, when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. In the aftermath of the tragic storm, Jon decided to stay in New York permanently with his true love.

jessie + jon

WANTING THE LOOK OF THEIR WEDDING CELEBRATION TO BE VERY SOFT, JESSIE & JON OPTED FOR AN UNDERSTATED COLOR PALETTE OF BLUSHING PINKS & SOPHISTICATED GREYS. THE LIGHTER HUES WERE THE PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO THE BEACHSIDE LOCALE.

THE PROPOSAL. While living in New York City, Jessie and Jon often

THE DAY & DESIGN. Ethereal romantic touches mixed with playful,

ventured out east on the weekends to stay at Jessie’s mother’s house. One such weekend, Jessie had plans to go for a morning run with her dog. “Jon woke up unusually early and decided to join us,” Jessie says. “On the beach, he stopped me and got down on one knee and proposed.” Jon’s proposal beside the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club, which later served as the couple’s reception site, set the tone for their picture-perfect wedding.

preppy details, including jaunty nautical graphics emblazoned on paper goods, to create a truly magical atmosphere. Jessie and Jon cast an enchanting glow over their celebration with luxe floral arrangements in subdued tones of blush pink, pale ivory, and crisp greens, with pink paper lanterns hanging from the ceilings. Personal touches, like a sweet floral collar for Jessie’s dog, made the day truly unforgettable, while cheeky favors, a decadent cake, and plenty of love and laughter ensured a good time for every guest.

THE WEDDING WEEKEND. With guests traveling from as far away as Australia, Jessie and Jon wanted their wedding weekend to be an experience to remember. “The wedding was the perfect chance for us to share Bridgehampton with our family and friends,” Jessie says, noting that the town has always been a special place for them as a couple. “It was great that so many people came and rented houses for a week or so. It gave us a chance to show them what we love about the area—golf, vineyards, and the beach— in a really relaxed way.”

[1] FACE FIRST: “what’s

"

the first thing anyone will see besides your dress? your face & hair! pictures of you will be around for years to come, so don’t skimp when it comes to skin care, hair care & professional services the day of.” ~katy smith of beautiful by katy+dina [BEAUTIFULBYKATYANDDINA.COM/PAGE164]

[2] PLAN AHEAD: “complete anything you & your beau intend to do

yourselves—such as diy decor elements or wedding favors—at least two weeks before the wedding. the minute your family arrives, your timeline will go off course.” ~daria culver of daria culver events [DARIACULVEREVENTS.COM / PAGE 12]

[3] TECH SAVVY: “the use of dslr cameras is one indication that your videographer is cutting edge. the camera’s image quality & unobtrusive size are a win-win” ~tim smith of tim alan smith videography [TIMALANSMITH.COM/ PAGE 166]

[4] BOOGEY AWAY: “a diversified, eclectic music mix is key to success. blending trendy with traditional keeps the dance floor packed & the yet-to-dance group still interested.” ~thomas white of spin around sound [SPINAROUNDSOUND.COM / PAGE 42] [5] BORROWED STYLE: “for many brides, wearing real diamond jewelry simply isn’t an option. renting diamonds allows a bride to live out her dream wedding without the financial burden.” ~nadine zaun of adorn jewelery [ADORN.COM / PAGE 38] [6] SOCIAL SAVVY:& “social media is a great way to communicate with your bridal party & guests—but be careful how much information you share. if not all of your facebook friends are invited to your wedding, they might not appreciate the play-by-play.” ~ anna post of the emily post institute [EMILYPOST.COM/WEDDINGS / PAGE 2]
