There’s just something about a beach wedding that makes you want to turn your face to the sun and smile. Rich blues in the sky and the sea were the perfect compliment to Christine’s crisp white gown and Kit’s tux in the beautiful autumn sunshine.
Fortunate to have absolutely beautiful weather, Christine and Kit’s beach wedding in Westhampton Beach was simply breathtaking. Oceanbleu is a stunning venue on Long Island, NY providing a serene neutral backdrop to their personalized decor with unbelievable views of the Atlantic ocean and a golden sunset.
Why this venue?
Christine grew up visiting the Hamptons and she and Kit enjoyed spending summer weekends there with family and friends. In the summer of 2019 Kit surprised Christine with a proposal at a beach a short walk from Christine’s parents’ house. They knew that keeping the Hamptons as part of their wedding celebration was the perfect way to round out their love story that had already began there.
Who was involved?
As family is important to both Christine and Kit, they were sure to include family members in the ceremony. Kit’s younger brother, Cal, is an award-winning violinist. He played the processional when Christine walked down the aisle with her stepfather. Christine’s uncle officiated the ceremony, which allowed him to speak personally of them as individuals and together as a couple and their love for each other. Several aunts read selections during the ceremony and nieces and nephews served as flower girls and ring bearers. Christine honored her late father by wearing a diamond necklace made from the engagement ring he gave her mother.
What was the bride and groom’s favorite part?
Christine’s favorite part was the ceremony on the beach! It was so beautiful and serene and they certainly lucked out with the most gorgeous sunny day! She also really loved that their ceremony was completely “them” – they picked all the music, readings, and even wrote and read their own vows.
Kit’s favorite part was the bars! Both the raw bar and the traditional bar – including special drink selections from both the bride and groom.
Where are they now?
Christine and Kit’s gorgeous wedding was in October of 2019 so they’ve settled into the routine life of husband and wife! They love traveling, exploring new cocktail bars, and doing escape rooms. They both had an amazing wedding day and are looking forward to continuing their love story at the Hamptons for many more trips in the years ahead!
We were so honored to be part of their day and to capture the big and small moments to enjoy and reminisce on for many years to come.
Best wishes to the happy couple!
