Amanda and Matt could not wait for their wedding at The Vineyard at Aquebogue. More specifically, they could not wait to see each other walking down the aisle. It would be the first time they would see each other on their wedding day.
Before we get to the wedding day, though, shouldn’t we start with how they met? Well, Amanda and Matt both worked at the restaurant, Prime, in Huntington. The two got to know each other very well, and as they say, the rest is history.
That is until it came time for Matt to pop the question. He told Amanda that his boss had a room at Gurney’s in Montauk for the weekend but could no longer go. Instead, he offered the room up to them for a very cheap price! Since Matt had never been to Montauk, Amanda thought it was a great idea.
When the weekend came, Amanda and Matt showed up to the hotel earlier than check-in. Amanda tried to convince Matt that they could leave their bags and head to a brewery, but Matt was not having it. So, they grabbed a coffee and a drink until their room was ready.
Finally, the room was ready! Amanda and Matt walked in and were so impressed with the room. Matt told Amanda that there was an issue with the key card so someone would be stopping by to fix it. When the front desk staff arrived, Matt asked him to take a picture of the two of them. Little did Amanda know, he was taking a video because Matt was proposing right then on the balcony!
Skip to a few months later and it was time to tie the knot! Amanda wore a dress that was exactly what she *thought* she didn’t want. What she believed was her “dream look” ended up being the total opposite. That was when her stepmother and mother-in-law convinced her to try on something form-fitting. Amanda ended up loving it! For the big day, she completed her look with a loose, romantic hairstyle.
As for Matt, he went for a rustic look as the couple did not want a formal wedding. So, he landed on blue suits with burgundy-colored bowties to match the bridesmaids’ dresses.
There was no particular theme for the wedding however, there was a running color scheme of creams, whites, greenery, and burgundy. In addition, they used votives as accents and added dimension to the room by adding high and low centerpieces on the tables. They also had candles, wooden signs, and vines.
Amanda and Matt’s wedding day was magical! Everything looked beautiful and nothing felt out of place, exactly what every bride and groom hope for! We are so glad we had the opportunity to be a part of it.
Here’s some advice Amanda had to share with future couples: “IT WILL ALL WORK OUT! Something did not go as planned, but I refused to let it ruin our special day! Everything will be OK and everything will fall into place. Be sure to spend some time alone and remember to laugh and smile.”
Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs!
