Casey & Ryan’s magical Long Island vineyard wedding took place on a warm September day at RGNY in eastern Long Island. Working in the event industry herself, Casey’s eye for detail came through at every part of the day, from her exquisitely beaded dress to the ethereal florals & delicately gold-rimmed glasses at the reception.
Casey & Ryan grew up practically on separate sides of the country, Casey in Arizona and Ryan on Long Island in New York. She spent every summer on the island growing up and one summer, while he was home from college, their paths crossed. So it felt natural to have their wedding at the spot where it all began.
“We planned to host a black tie wedding to reflect how important this day is to us,” Casey said. “Ryan & I love the culture of the North Fork, the outdoors, and dancing, and we didn’t want it to feel stuffy. We wanted the wedding to feel like a fancy college party, if such a thing ever existed.”
Morning started at a white-washed beach house with a wall of windows looking out on a private beach & the gently lapping waves of the Long Island Sound. The rest of the day took place at RGNY, from the first look in the midst of a row of trees, to the ceremony with vines stretching out behind them as far as the eye could see, the beautiful white tent for cocktail hour (and afterparty festivities) and the barn for the reception.
Laughter, love for adventure & deep connection these two share was the energy that wove together this gorgeous day.
