Boho Montauk Rehearsal Dinner + Wedding

Every day is a pretty-fest on this corner of the blogosphere, but when our friends at Christian Oth Studio stop by for an all day recap of their loveliest weddings of the season? Well, that’s something worth celebrating. With not two, not three, but four weddings on the agenda, we’re in for a serious treat and it all starts with this Montauk stunner brought to life by Sofia Crokos Events and Sag Harbor Florist. First up, the rehearsal dinner and keep scrolling for the gorgeous big day.

Without further adieu, Katie and John’s gorgeous wedding…

From Christian Oth Studios… Katie and John were married September 28th at Crow’s Nest in Montauk, NY. The rehearsal dinner and after party were at Surf Lodge which is also where the groom and groomsmen got ready. Katie’s dress was from Stone Fox Bride and the silk slip dress that she changed into at the end of the night is actually her senior prom dress.

Wedding Dress Back Styles We Love

When it comes to details, there’s no doubt the wedding dress is front and center. And as much as I love watching the Bride walk down the aisle, watching her walk back after the ceremony with her Groom is even better, because I’m a sucker for gorgeous dress back details. This little round-up? It’s sure to satisfy your wedding fashion cravings, at least for the time being.

It’s bohemian perfection crafted by Bash Please, with florals by Sweet Marie Designs and photography by Christian Cruz For Max & Friends. Click here for the full gorgeous affair.

From The Bride…As soon as James and I got engaged, we agreed on the one major detail of our wedding – that it would be a mini-vacation for all who attended. With this in mind, we set forth to find the perfect church as we felt that our marriage would be the cornerstone for our intimate wedding. We drove up the Pacific Coast, stopping in Malibu and Santa Barbara before having our breath taken away by the majestic beauty and tradition of the Carmel Mission and the city of Carmel. From that point on, we knew that we wanted Bash, Please to help us make our dream weekend a reality after having attended and being captivated by their creative mindset at their wildly popular Cream Event. Upon meeting Melissa and later Sydney, we imparted our desire to make every detail of our wedding weekend, bespoke.

We knew that a Fall wedding would lend itself well to all that Carmel had to offer as well as our love of hearty food, deep, rich colors, and the crispness or air that only a perfect Fall day could bring. We wanted a celebration that was unique yet approachable, where our guests felt comfortable and happy and were able to experience elements they maybe hadn’t experienced before. We knew upon meeting each of the creative, talented vendors that it was a match from the start. Alise made sure that our flowers were rich, vibrant and unique (and surprised me with out of season peonies in my bouquet!). Pharmacie made sure that guests were able to partake in uniquely curated cocktails. Our photographers – Christian and Reinna, were such a dream to work with, they captured our day beautifully and made it a seamless effort. A Chef by trade, James oversaw all of the culinary details for the weekend. From the salmon tartarecones with cilantro caviar to the mini candy crab apples that circulated during the dance, it was one unforgettable meal. Steve and his team exemplified the term “a restaurant without walls.” We wanted each dining experience to truly stand out with unexpected little touches like the vintage Absinthe Cart making rounds at the rehearsal dinner to the “roomforty campfire” deconstructed s’mores and mini candied crab apples passed during our first dance. The private residence we selected for our celebration overlooked the Ocean. We knew that our guests would drive up the long and windy Point Lobos Ridge road not knowing what to expect when they got to the top.

The big reveal on our big day, was one of the best surprises of the weekend! Clouds hung low above the patio, and every guest expressed at some point “We are dining above the clouds!” Indeed we were floating in the clouds, not only then but during the entire weekend. An unforgettable marriage and wedding – indeed.
