Board No. 71: Hamptons Pool Party

17 May 2010

I guess the only way to begin this post is to say, a girl can dream, right? Let’s start with the location: the soft, deep green, rolling back lawn of a Hamptons estate, punctuated by an oversized pool. The weather? Perfect: warm and dry, blue skies as far as the eye can see. The bride arrives in a vintage Rolls, wearing a polka-dotted Melissa Sweet (my favorite!). The groom and male guests are in classic black tuxes, the attendants are all in white. Of course the hedges are in bloom, and they only add to the lush, loose arrangements on the tables dotted across the lawn. And the cake? A delicious multi-tiered confection by Sylvia Weinstock.

Sigh.

    Can I just say that I kind of want this to be the inspiration for my wedding some day.. It reminds me of Martha's Vineyard!

    Say the word and you got it, girl! I'll get started on the perfect weather… we might need a little extra lead time on that…
