Andrew and Whitney

Wednesday, October 26, 2011



























I can't resist Swiss dot any more than I can resist blue blazers with brass buttons or gingham, and when you throw all those gems into a single wedding, you've got one wonderful Wednesday!

Whitney and Andrew were married at Point O' Woods, Fire Island where the bride spent summers as a kid. Since this particular portion of the island doesn't allow cars, guests walked along the beach or cruised over on their bicycles to toast the newlyweds-isn't that darling?

Modern invitations designed by Whitney Hays and printed by Boxcar Press introduced the fresh white and chartreuse color palette, echoed in arrangements of dendrobium orchids, roses, hydrangeas and sweet peas by Robert Clark and the striped linens. The bride wore a Christos gown and Kate Spade peep toes, while her maids dazzled in matching green dresses; Andrew and his groomsmen chose classic navy blazers paired with khaki slacks and green gingham bow ties.

But arguably my favorite part of this wedding? The tent, from Stamford Tent–I just can't resist a big white tent on a vivid green lawn! The whole affair was coordinated by Dixie Todd of Party Resources, and beautifully captured by Sarah Rhoads, who generously shared these photos first spotted on Style Me Pretty!
