Synchronised swimmers at cocktail hour, a Mira Zwillinger gown, a lemonade stand, and an exclusive sculpture garden venue.
Ali and Fred’s April Fools’ Day engagement promised a truly unique big day. It was no surprise then that their wedding celebration in The Hamptons exceeded all expectations.
The wedding party (featuring bespoke pastel bridesmaid dresses) were photographed around the sculpture garden venue that hosts only a handful of private events each year. Meanwhile, guests were decorated at an on-demand flower crown bar while they sipped signature drinks and snacked at a hot dog station. We adore unique celebrations full of personal touches and this elegant, playful wedding is ranking high on the list for individuality.
Ali and Fred's beautiful garden ceremony and reception were captured by the talented Cappy Hotchkiss. See a full list of vendors below.
