Mike and Gabrielle’s wedding in Montauk this past Saturday was creative, thoughtful, original, romantic, beautiful and delicious. I plan to spend this week sharing the details of their magical day.
The couple’s relationship shifted in Montauk, you can read their he said, she said version of how they met and why sunrise is significant here on their website. Fighting much resistance, the couple decided to exchange vows at 6:30a.m. at Camp Hero Park with Montauk’s signature lighthouse looking on from a distance.
Their former bosses and dear friends are now affectionately referred to as the reverends as they became ordained as ministers to officiate the ceremony. This creative duo splits their time between Montauk and Manhattan. She designs Montoids and he is the chief editor of The End.
The bride’s oldest friend and the groom’s sister read poems. The couple walked away from the group to exchange their vows privately. Violin music warmed the early morning air and a cookie coaxed the flower girl along.
Tomorrow, I’ll share the surprise the couple arranged for their guests after the ceremony.
