A Romantic, Fall Wedding at Sole East in Montauk, New York

Michelle Condon (28 and an event manager at Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant) and Steve Rollery (29 and works for the Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts) planned a romantic, elegant affair at Sole East in Montauk, New York, for their mid-October wedding. Baton NYC and Celadon & Celery brought the couple’s vision for a stunning yet laid-back affair to life with plenty of warm candlelight, luxe neutral linens, gilded accents and organic arrangements of richly colored blooms. “I used a neutral base and then mixed in navy, maroon, deep magenta and gold,” Michelle says. “I wanted to keep everything light for the most part, but loved tying in some of the deeper tones since it was a fall wedding.” The day started with an outdoor ceremony officiated by Steve’s uncle, in which the couple exchanged emotional vows under a lush floral, ivy and fern garland, followed by dinner and dancing under an open-air tent. Long farm-style tables were dressed in airy neutral linens, with lengths of ivy, deeply hued centerpieces and crystal candelabras infusing the space with undeniable ambiance. Gilded chiavari chairs were draped in faux-fur throws to add a cozy feel to the decor, while vintage-inspired colored glasses inspired an air of old-world charm. Guests indulged in decadent eats like lobster rolls and tuna tartare, with mini ice cream sandwiches putting a totally sweet spin on the traditional wedding cake. In addition to dancing, the couple’s families and friends could kick it by the fire pit and make s’mores or strike a pose at the prop-stocked photo booth. A tip from Michelle: “On the day of your wedding, just have fun and commit to no longer worrying about anything. There is nothing left to change and everything will happen as it should. That doesn’t mean it will always be perfect, but if something happens that's unplanned, it’s likely that no one will notice.”
