A Rustic-Chic Beach Wedding at Maguire's Bayfront Restaurant in Ocean Beach, New York
Although Caitlin LaRocco (31, an art teacher) and Thomas Alfano (32, a contractor) grew up a mile away from each other, had the same interests, the same friends and lived on the same mile-wide barrier beach for seven years, their paths never crossed until Tom sat down next to her on night at Maguire's Bayfront Restaurant. "How we had never spoken before, was just inexplicable," says Caitlin. ?The two began talking and quickly realized just how much they had in common. "It was just IT," she adds. "From that moment we were inseparable." Just over a year later Tom proposed on the top of Fire Island Lighthouse with an aquamarine engagement ring, perfect for his beachy bride. Given their love for Fire Island, it was an easy choice for their rustic-chic beach wedding. Driftwood, seashells and beach glass paired with a color palette of aqua, assorted blue tones and tan accents made their day look like an extension of the ocean.
