A stunning art garden in the Hamptons, which only hosts a handful of weddings per year, was just the right place for this gorgeous duo, Teresa + Aaron, to celebrate their love and say their I Dos. As a working model, Teresa, who has connections to some of the best designers in the business, knew she wanted a lightweight wedding dress that was easy to move and dance in, so she reached out to her friend Hayley Paige, to collaborate on a design that was a perfect match for her aesthetic. We are pret-ty in love with how it turned out and are happy to share that the dress, aptly named after the lovely Teresa, is now available for other brides to purchase for their own big day! (Cue happy dance!)
In addition to the amazing portraits captured by Jesse of Golden Hour Studios, we’re pretty sure you are going to totally fall for the bright blooms by Sag Harbor Florist, sweet reception serenades by both Teresa and Aaron and the overall magical vibe of this wedding! Let’s take a peek…
Teresa and her bridesmaids got ready in floral Kimonos from Japan and, later, the bridal party slipped into mismatched blush gowns by JLM Occasions.
We love, love, love this bright bridal bouquet comprised of peonies, ranunculus, summer roses, orchids, and greenery. So perfect for paying homage to the dreamy garden setting.
Teresa + Aaron kicked off their ceremony with a traditional New Zealand welcome, followed by personalized vows that they exchanged beneath a flower-wrapped altar.
Teresa + Aaron created two signature cocktails for their guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. Hers, the “Teresita” was comprised of Broken Shed vodka, amaretto, lemon juice, and soda and his, the “Finch and Tonic” was a classic gin and tonic drink. To top things off, a New Orleans style brass duet lead guests throughout the entire property during cocktail hour. Too fun!!
During the reception, friends + family dined on a seasonal menu created by The Hamptons Aristocrat under an airy Sperry tent at tables named after different birds as a nod to the couple’s last name, Finch.
Make sure to integrate special things about you and your partner into the wedding. Those special touches make the day extra memorable.
