Our wedding was wonderful! We all had a blast. Getting married in Peconic, NY on the North Fork of Long Island was the best move we ever made. Its a great vacation destination, offering many activities and sights for guests to enjoy and take in. And September is a great time of the year on Peconic, as it's usually sunny and in the 70s-80s. Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests. I created my wedding website with Wedding Mapper, along with a custom map that I included in our welcome bags for the guests. I highly recommend using them!
Tom White at Spin Around Sound is fantastic!! He was wonderful to work with leading up to the wedding and did an amazing job. I was planning the wedding from Houston TX, and Tom was always available for my calls and questions...we even Skyped several times to make it easier to talk! He really listens to what you want and gets to know you and your taste along the way. Plus, he's very professional and wants to ensure a fabulous evening to his clients. The music he played at the wedding was right on the mark with what we wanted and our guests danced the night away! The dance floor was packed. I highly recommend Tom to anyone. He's fantastic!!
Kim is amazing. She was such a joy to work with and I am so happy we went with her for our wedding. The flowers were out of this world and simply amazing. The bouquets, centerpieces, and all the arrangements were so beautiful and so well constructed/arranged. And the flowers are so fresh, they lasted for days to follow. Kim hand selects only the freshest and best flowers, and really shows care and attention for each one. I so enjoyed working with her, as well. I was planning the wedding from Houston TX so I relied heavily on email and phone, and she was always available for me no matter how small the question. She's so nice and easy to talk to. She really listens and also makes great recommendations. I highly recommend Kim to anyone! Our guests are STILL talking about the flowers to this day.
Sherry is fantastic. Not only is she extremely talented, but a total joy to be around. I was planning the wedding from Houston TX so I relied heavily on email and phone, and she was always available for me, no matter how small the question. The day of the wedding, she mixed in just like family and was so patient and kind with us all...while also being very professional and making sure to get the shots we wanted. She really listens to what you want and goes above and beyond to deliver on that, while also making great suggestions. I had 100% trust in her and she did a fantastic job. She even stayed at the wedding longer than we had agreed to just because she wanted to get a few more shots. Photographers like Sherry are rare and I am so happy I found her! She's the best!!
St Patrick's church is a wonderful church to be married in. We developed a close relationship with Father Peter, who was wonderful throughout the process and gave a beautiful sermon. Closer to the wedding, we worked with the wedding coordinator, Pattey, and organist who did a fantastic job helping to organize the procession and program, and they did a wonderful job at the ceremony with the music. Its such a beautiful church, as well. Felt old and small, which is what we wanted.
Raphael weddings are simply amazing! I can't say enough about how happy we are with our wedding reception. They exceeded all our expectations from start to finish. I was blown away. It was truly over-the-top and 5-star all the way. I knew they were great, but I didn't know HOW great until we were actually going through it. And wow, it ended up being a storybook wedding reception and felt like a fantasy. They went above and beyond to help me each step of the way and we formed a close relationship over the months leading up the wedding. I worked closely with Lisa, Julie, and Sam -- who are all fantastic. I couldn't have done it without them, and they literally make it effortless for you. They truly jump through hoops to accommodate your every request and go above and beyond to make sure you and all the guests are happy. The food was absolutely amazing... the guests are still talking about it, as are we. Top notch menu, ingredients, and presentation. They don't miss a beat! And the service and staff at the wedding was outstanding. So buttoned up and friendly. Never did you have to look for someone to fill your glass or get you something -- they were already there asking you what you wanted with a big smile. And the reception itself ran so smoothly from cocktails to dinner to speeches and dancing. I wish we could go back and do it again! I highly recommend a wedding there. Our guests are still talking about it... as are we.
Most of our wedding guests stayed at Cliffside Condos. Its the perfect place on the North Fork for out of town guests to come and stay for a wedding, while also making it a mini vacation. Units are newly renovated offering all the conveniences of home, and the beach is beautiful. The staff and management were extremely helpful and accommodating, as well. Our guests were extremely happy, as was I.
Some of our wedding guests stayed at Harborfront. The hotel and rooms are really nice and newly renovated...and the hotel is in a nice location right in Greenport Village. Also the management is extremely helpful and accommodating.
I can't say enough good things about Jampesport Manor Inn. We held our rehearsal dinner there and it was fantastic. The setting was just beautiful. People had a wonderful time! The cocktail hour was outside followed by dinner in a private room on the second floor. Everything ran so smoothly. The decor and table settings were beautifully done, service and staff was top notch, and the appetizers, food, and drinks were fantastic! What a great menu! We loved the food and the guests are still talking about it. The staff and management were wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to accommodate all our needs and wants. They set up a slideshow in the middle for us with their screen, which went so well. The event director, Teresa, was amazing. We spoke and met several times before the wedding and she was a joy to work with. I highly recommend the JMI to anyone!!
