Nora and Michael wed on Ludlow Farm in Bridgehampton, NY at a simple, outdoors wedding. The ceremony was a modern take on a traditional Jewish ceremony, where the couple wed underneath a simple wood and floral huppah. The reception was adorned with sweet country touches like Japanese lanterns, mason jars to drink from, and wooden details.

The playlist for the reception was created by DJ Jason Fioto of Generation Events, playing a combination of contemporary pop with classic oldies. Nora and Michael danced to She's Got a Way About Her by Billy Joel for their first dance.
Nora incorporated her ancestors into her ceremony. Not only was she married in her great grandmother's gold wedding band, but she walked down the aisle holding her paternal great grandfather's prayer book.
Nora wore a simple, mermaid-style Monique L'huillier gown in blush silk Jacquard. All of the jewelrey that she wore on her wedding day was designed by her mother, which included an 18K matte gold and diamond wave bracelet, a matte gold triple-ridge ring with cabochon moonstone and a matte gold and diamond woven earrings.
The reception had a great deal of appetizers available before the first course. Amongst the many options, there were prosciutto BLTs, yellowtail sashimi, truffled tater tots and lobster rolls.
Nora carried a simple bouquet made of white spray garden roses, light-green parrot tulips and white magolicka roses.
The reception was held at the same farm as the ceremony. A large tent was set up with various sized tables covered in light linen tablecloths. Small bouquets of white and light-green flowers were displayed on the tables as well as antique mirrors in the middle to reflect the light. Small antique silver and glass candle holders scattered across the tops of the tables.
Escort cards were made of craft paper and hung with wooden close pins from white string. Guests were assigned to tables but were free to sit where they pleased.
Japanese lanterns covered the ceiling of the tent while hundreds of white candles filled the rest of the space with a soft glow.
The cocktail hour took place inside the cocktail tent which was transformed with comfortable outdoor lounge furniture to give it a laid-back vibe. Signature drinks such as the Ginger Mojito and the Sage Lemonade were served in mason jars.
Nora and Michael were surprised by their two layer wedding cake by Nora's sister-in-law, Chef Hannah Galbreath. The bottom layer was Michael's favorite, chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, while top layer was for Nora, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. The entire cake was covered in vanilla fondant and decorated with fresh flowers.
Nora and Michael married under a simple bamboo and tall grass huppah with bunches of hydrangeas, blush spray roses and green vibernum in the corners. The aisle had a white runner and was lined with lamps.
The outdoor ceremony took place on Ludlow Farm in front of Mecox Bay, amongst the sunflowers. Guests sat on wood benches in rows and the women were offered pashminas for the ceremony.
