Last weekend my fiancee and I went out east to check out our favorite and most promising wedding venue to date. So here is a little sneak peak. The hope is that a destination wedding in Montauk will get our dearest friends and family to travel from far and wide to join us for a most sensational celebration.
as always, click images to enlargeSo perched on Montauk Lake is a small private club that we hope to be able to rent for a September wedding in 2010.
We love the old, grand character of the property and buildings and how it is positioned right on the water.
There is a little lower lawn down at the water's edge.
Typically people have their ceremony on the upper lawn and we would probably do the same. Everyone there was super accomodating and open to our suggestions of different ways things could be done.
On one side is the bar where the cocktail reception would be following the ceremony.
And then on the other side is the dining room and a tent would be set up on the lawn to make sure there was enough room for ample eating, drinking, and dancing. ...'cause those of you in the know know how we are going to throw down!
The interior had great woodwork and again, an older stately elegance that got us really excited.
The dining room...
...full of light and so comfortable.
Out on the adjacent docks the views were killer. Spot for wedding photography: check!
We stayed out through the sunset and had ourselves a five course tasting prepared by chef Mike. The food was to-die-for, and that pretty much sealed the deal in our minds.
Now we're just waiting to see if the dates work out. We hope, we hope, so keep your fingers crossed for us. And hopefully we'll see you in September of 2010 for a damn good time! xoxo, us
