Julie & Garrett, September 22; Montauk

Julie and Garrett prayed to the rain Gods last week, and they listened. Much of the wedding revolved around being outside and enjoying the views and landscape that the private beach at Gurney's Inn in Montauk would provide.

When I arrived, Julie was getting ready in Gurney's spa, before heading to the bridal suite to change into her dress and apply the finishing touches to her make up. The footage of the bride and her bridesmaids is a Tim Alan Studios specialty, and Julie and her friends natural banter and excitement were a joy to capture. While the girls got ready at Gurney's, Garrett and his groomsmen hung out on a yacht before heading to the beach for the ceremony.

When Julie walked down the aisle, Garrett practically fell out of his shoes with excitement as she neared. The ceremony ended with all the guests posing on the beach with the bride and groom for a group shot from photographer Beth Keiser. They then flooded the top-deck of Gurney's to enjoy cocktail hour before filing into the main room for the reception. The ocean was the theme, with sand, starfish and shells at all turns and ocean views plentiful for all.

When the band played the last dance, there were no tears shed as most of the crowd spent three more hours on the beach enjoying coolers full of beer and acoustic performance by a guitarist who seem to know every song they wanted to hear. A day to remember and a night that will be hard to forget....
