Stay-cation Wedding

Steve and I have traveled to Montauk just about every summer and we thought it would be the perfect place for our stay-cation style wedding. We chose navy beach because of the location on the bay and the decor inside- it was perfect for our laid back style. They also have delicious food!

Gotta Love A Talented Groom

We decided to add a lot of our own little touches using Steve's talents as a designer. We ended up designing the table cards, place settings, favors and other little touches. Lunch was served family style and dancing took place both on the beach outside and inside at the bar.

If I could have done it over again, I would have tried to relax more. I stressed a lot about little things, and as much as I tried not too I did stress a lot.
