Rachel and Chris wanted their wedding to be an intimate experience for their guests. They rented a home on the water in Northport and that’s where they held the ceremony and the dinner that followed.
The weather allowed them to enjoy dinner outside at one long table set with vintage plates and linens tied with jute string. Great music played while conversations, dinner and the whole celebration carried on into the night under the glow of strings of lights and candles. Rachel and Chris had always envisioned a wedding small enough where they could talk to and enjoy everyone. They invited their closest family and friends in order to create the close knit atmosphere where the guests could truly be part of the day, rather than just be “at a wedding.”
