As if it were written for a screenplay, Aubrey & Andrew’s love story began by pure coincidence. While shopping at Whole Foods in Union Square, they accidentally bumped into each other over a local strawberry display. A hurried trip for groceries became a classic “meet cute” when they began chatting and Andrew asked Aubrey out for a drink. Casual cocktails led to a date later in the week, then a second, and then another. “I was intrigued by his straight forwardness,” Aubrey says. “He was so easy to read, and it was refreshing.”
Seeking to host a beachside affair with a hint of vintage whimsy, Aubrey & Andrew knew their friend’s summer home in Quogue would be the perfect place to say “I do.” The couple kept the design simple to allow the cozy cottage charm of the beach house to speak for itself. “Because the home was already perfectly decorated, we let the colors of the season dictate our design,” Aubrey says. “Locally grown hydrangeas in antiqued ivory and sage hues were the source of our inspiration.” Bamboo poles tied with ribbons in the day’s shades led loved ones to the celebration aglow with laid-back, seaside style. Vintage bird cages and tulle pom-poms hung overhead as guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres in lieu of a traditional sit-down feast. Loved ones danced to the tunes of a live band late into the evening, as Aubrey and Andrew set off to begin their happily ever after.
