Corey Gold, lifestyle blogger behind @seegoldenstyle, and Brian Farber shared on a dating app not just once, but twice a different summer break. For the first time, “we were just texting,” says Corey. Summer came to an end and texting ended. Then, the following year, another game.
“Our first day was at The Ludlow Hotel bar on August 1, 2018,” recalls Corey, a former marketing editor at Harper’s BAZAAR and ELLE who has just started her marketing skills. He felt in touch with Brian, the lawyer. “The first thing I noticed was his height. If you ask him he says he remembers my red. We spent hours chatting and, not wanting the night to come. We went to another bar to have another drink. ” “It ‘s different. On that first day, he always felt the need to go home.”
Over the next few years, the couple fell in love dating in New York City and on their way to Westhampton Beach. On the first day of May 2021, Brian knelt on one knee in that important position. “He arranged on the beach, the two of us, with the ring of my dreams,” Corey says. He was impressed. “Even though we never went to buy a ring, Brian somehow found the exact ring I wanted to reach for the smaller ones: a beautiful two-tone stone, white gold, and a gold band.” The surprises did not end there, however. “Our families had secretly arrived by plane and were looking forward to celebrating with us at my favorite restaurant, Dockers. This included all of my grandparents – who had never traveled since the beginning of COVID — our parents, and our siblings. The whole weekend was thoughtfully planned by Brian. I can not believe that he performed such a miracle without losing a bean! ”
There was no other place to marry except Westhampton Beach; they knew from before they dated then they would say “I do.” The place? “At my grandfather’s house,” Corey says. “We had this party with water in the backyard, congratulations near the pool, and tent camping. Their home has always been my favorite place. It is full of many wonderful memories. When Brian and I finished our first summer at home and fell in love there, it became even more important. “
The venue set the tone for the whole vibe and aesthetic of the ceremony. “I define our wedding style as the love of the beach meets Hamptons elegance,” the bride explains. “My grandparents’ home is above water, surrounded by lush vegetation and vegetation. So, the goal was to increase the beauty of nature. I never imagined a clean wedding, and the Hamptons provided the perfect setting for colorful pops. “
It all came together with help from planner Ashley Douglass. “From the hour-long Zoom call to running to Long Island together, she was there every step of the way and really helped bring my vision to life,” Corey says. “I knew on that day, I could have been on time without worries, knowing that Ashley and her team would make sure everything was perfect.”
Corey and Brian said “I do” in front of 165 guests on June 11, 2022, a wedding reserved for the Italian delegation: a welcoming dinner at Raphael Winery last night, and a honeymoon in Capri there. Stay tuned to see all the highlights of their big day, organized by Ashley Douglass Events and photographed by Stephanie Sunderland.
At the invitation meeting, “we wrote to the singer to create a picture of my grandparents’ house, which we used inside our envelope as well as on our reception cards,” Corey explains. The suite included the color scheme, too: Hamptons blue, white, ivory, peach, and green. “We also created a custom monogram and put it on everything from napkins to menus to bars.”
“Our backpacks were an act of charity,” says Corey. “I wanted to give our guests a real welcome for the Hamptons, combining some of our favorite things as a couple.” They suppressed the traditional Swag Bags Co totes – adorned with the slogan “Outside the East” – and delicious. “There were boxes of food that I liked Ladurée macaroni and our monogram; bags of watermelon Sour Patch Kids, Brian’s favorite candy; Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Lip Pop; J.R. Watkins sandalwood hand sanitizer; Hampton Popcorn and Tate’s cookies, two special Hamptons; Westhampton Beach hats; high heels; water; Advil; and our weekend trip. ”
The weekend started with a reception party at Raphael Winery on North Fork. “The second time we saw each other, Raphael fell in love with us,” recalls Corey. “It looks like a little piece of Italy! We played the Italian theme with a rosé and Prosecco, and the table layout was full of flowers, lemons, rims, grapes, and ceremonial fabrics.
For the first time, Bridegroom Brian opted for a wild green linen suit from Suitsupply with a pattern of green square pockets and brown Gucci loafers.
“I wore a Mestiza dress that I worked with with the style from the beginning,” Corey says. “The veil began as a drawing, so seeing it alive was amazing and something I had never seen before. I knew I wanted something white and gold, that the Greek goddess felt for it.” She wore a beautiful coat: gold Amina Muaddi high heels, a Rosantica bag, and a VRAI necklace, and her grandmother’s earrings. and one of my grandmother’s. “
She went bolder with her beauty for night one. “The head of my hair, Dina DiPietro, made me a beach hairstyle; and Kerin Chadwick created a bronzy, gold look.
“I wrote a cake with Andrea to make a groom’s cake – a description of Brian’s family dog, Archie,” says Corey. “It was a big hit!”
On the wedding day, “I really wanted to feel like me, but a little bit,” Corey says of her beauty. “I love the brightness of the dew, the shiny bronze shade, the bright inner corner of the eye, the neutral pink lip, and the bright cat’s eye.” A few you should have? Kerin introduced me to the best interior design eye corner enhancement: Armenian Beauty Beauty Kill the Moon. Secretly, I’m a Shape Tape girl all the way, so we stuck to that for the wedding day. Pillow Talk lipstick on.
“I feel a lot like me with my hair down, so it was never a question for me how I would wear it on the big day,” Corey continues. “I kept it in high quality with my go-to-curls – however, I increased my height and volume with a clip-in-hair extension from The Hair Shop.”
On the morning of the wedding, Corey presented his daughters-in-law, mother, and mother-in-law with champagne dresses and Robed With Love and faux fur slippers. The bride was wearing a matching white dress. “I began to love the rope around my arms,” he says. “I just thought they were different and liked the way they acted in the pictures.”
Preparation was an important event in itself. “The girls are greeted with a sweet: Ladurée macaroni tower with our wedding monogram and candy charcuterie board by Ruby Bond,” Corey says. “Along with the clothes and slippers, I gave each of the girls bags a Tissu Quotidien anti-wrap bag with all my favorite products from OUAI. with their names in rhinestones. Finally, everyone found a soft diamond bench and VRAI dress for their girlfriend’s dress, a nice touch to finish!
Corey’s mother helped her put on her gown, A-line Mira Zwillinger with a simple bodice, flowing skirt, and three-dimensional floral appliqués. “This may surprise a lot of people, but I never saw my dream shirt before I dated,” Corey says. “But as soon as I set the time, I immersed myself in Pinterest and quickly figured out what I wanted.
“It” became the first outfit she wore on Mark Ingram Atelier. “It simply came to our notice then. I left the dressing room and walked over to my mom and my mother-in-law, shouting, ‘We’re done!’ I really couldn’t believe it! It took me a whole day trying on some of the more unique dresses to realize I had found them. “
Again, his accessoring was for sure. “Jimmy Choo heels as my new item, veil compared to Mira Zwillinger, Mach & amp; Mach bag, YI Collection aquamarine ring as my blue item, my grandmother’s diamond diamond tennis as my old item, and amazing emerald cut diamond earrings from my Rings Concierge item.
“Brian and I wrote out our vows privately, but we decided to read them privately on the morning of the wedding,” says Corey. “I started to cry after the first two lines and memorized it quickly:‘ On our first day, when you came in wearing a red dress, I knew I loved you. But when we left, I knew it was you. ‘”
To find her perfect wedding day look – which she showed to the couple in the first impression – she took the initiative. Leading up to the wedding, Corey went to HydraFacials a month at Marmur Medical and “drank a TON of water,” he says. “A few weeks before the wedding, Colleen at Spoke & amp; Weal updated my posts. I used an OUAI mask for hair treatment twice a week. The week of the wedding, I had a blue dress and tinted by Rebecca on Bespoke Brows. Glow2Go gave me that beautiful tone just off the coast.
There was home-skincare, too. “If you’ve ever seen my medicine cabinet on Instagram, you know I’m a perfect product. I’m looking for new products to incorporate into my practice, but there are some that I’ve used over the years that I will always have in my calendar. , First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, IT Cosmetics Confidence in Cream, and anything with IS Clinical.
“Shany Gali is a fan of nails,” Corey continues. “I went to see him a few months before our wedding and he completely changed my appearance. On the day of the wedding, we chose a white one — Kyoto Pearl by OPI — with a natural, almond shape. ” Finally, she applied it to Aerin’s Mediterranean Honeysuckle eau de parfum, “the fragrance I wear on vacation. It always brings back the best memories. ”
The family pup Archie looked adorned with a beautiful bow-tie collar.
“Brian got his tux from Michael Andrews Bespoke – this place is everyone’s dream,” Corey says. “The studio is closed in the hallway in West Village. Once inside, you are greeted by the owner of a French bulldog and full bar. Brian took off a mid-night blue tux jacket with black pants and matching blue pants. He was wearing black suede loafers and To Boot, black tie, and black tie.
The bride surprised him with another special accessory: gold Tiffany & amp; Co. cufflinks are marked with their first letters and the date of the wedding. He also received word-of-word reading commitments before the ceremony.
Having a first look at just the two of us before all our guests arrived was important and it is a time I will always cherish.
“Because we had to sign our ketubah before the ceremony, we wanted to have a special time to start as a couple,” Corey recalls. “Brian always wanted my first impression of me on the road, which I would have liked — but that could not have worked with the rest of the day. Of course, having a first impression with both of us before all our guests arrived was important and it is a time I will always cherish. “
“Wearing your wedding dress is always important, but it’s even more important if your husband is going to see you in it,” says Corey. “Before we even looked, I found the butterflies! And after that, I didn’t want to let go of Brian’s hand again for the whole night.”
Floral designer Ode and Bastille wrapped a bouquet of creamy white peonies with a soft satin ribbon covered with pearl pin; created the perfect decoration for interesting photos. The women carried mixed flowers — roses, lisianthus, Queen Anne’s lace, and peonies — all white, wrapped in a single ribbon.
“All the girls are wearing champagne. Show me your Mumu dresses,” Corey says. “I wanted the look of everyone wearing the same color, but with different styles and shapes. Some girls wore silk, others wore lace. My two sisters and my honorable maiden wore the same dress. They all looked amazing!”
The bridesmaids kept it for the night in black tiled tedos.
Upon entering the banquet, guests were greeted with a welcome drink and a fruit-based water bar.
“I wanted our chuppah to feel functional and to fit in with the atmosphere,” Corey says of the decorating game. “We chose a birch chuppah adorned with white linen that ran with bundles of blue and white and green. The ceremonial flowers included a mixture of garden flowers, peonies, delphinium, spray roses, Queen Anne’s lace, tweedia, and hydrangeas. Clusters of low-key flowers surrounded the runner of the white alley, with two garden reurn designs that indicated the head of the alley. ” Each of the 165 guest chairs is hung with a flower-colored cone to be thrown after the couple said “I do.”
“Our wonderful granddaughter was a ring bearer wearing a tux and white Converse,” says Corey. “Akaba show!” The pillow of white linen he carried was woven by the names of these two.
Heartwarmers from the Jenna Wynne Band — made up of guitar, strings, and keys — sang. The groom entered with her parents to “I Get to Love You” by Ruelle, followed by a wedding reception entitled “Maybe I’m Amazed.”
It marks the best time of my life, walking down the road to my eternal love.
After putting on her matching veil, “I walked with my parents to Sarah Bareilles ” Choice ‘,’” Corey recalls. “Tears well up in my eyes as I think about this song. It marks the best time of my life, walking the path to my eternal love. “
Their traditional Jewish ritual included rituals such as a long ribbon, or shawl for worship, on the shoulders of a couple as a symbol of unity.
I have never felt such joy.
The singer took Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing” to the couple happily off the stage.
The ceremony was all Corey had dreamed it would be. “When I walked down the aisle and saw Brian’s face, it was definitely the best time of my life,” he recalls. “Brian never cried, so every day when he had tears in his eyes, I started to cry. I have never felt happier in my life. ” They happily took pictures, just the two of them, around the beautiful scenery.
Meanwhile, visitors headed for the lake for dinner. “I felt like this was a good time to play with color and do something unexpected,” Corey says of jewelry. “We had a bright blue-blue delphinium in blue-and-white ceramic vases that adorned the tablecloths. Brian and I made a monogram for our wedding invitation and wanted to use it for the whole wedding. ! ”
“We had two signatories, named after important places in Westhampton Beach,” Corey explains. “The Main Street Margarita was a fragrant melon margarita, and Rogers Beach Rosé was a peach sangria.”
“Instead of a table of escort cards, we decided to create a Champagne display, where each guest would take a rebubbly glass to get their dinner chair on an acrylic drink stirrer.”
There is really no better feeling than thinking of ideas and seeing them come to life.
“When planning a wedding at a family home, you should build the whole space from scratch,” Corey says; his blossom under the inspired veil of the Serry Tent. “I’ve certainly had some traumatic moments, but there’s no better feeling than thinking of ideas and seeing them live. I guess that’s why I’m in marketing!
“Visitors were ushered into the reception tent by candlelight,” he continues. “We chose rattan basket lamps to hang all over the tent, matching our jackets to each location. We opted for a beautiful blue-and-white printed cloth, a cup of pop-of-color cobalt, gold-colored glasses, and gold and white furniture,” Corey says. The flowers were mostly white, with yellowish tones and butter.
“Since our tent size did not allow for dance floor, we chose bars, filled with our monogram in the middle and hydrangeas pulled by hand from our wedding invitation to the edge.” They gave less play, but: monogram gobo lamps. “On top of the playroom, Emily and her team made a stunning green ceiling, with white flowers hanging high. It was beautiful!”
The playground was the place to be, after all. In addition to the couple’s first dance to “Butterflies” by MAX show Fletcher – and family play to John Mayer’s “Daughters” and Céline Dion’s “Because You Loved Me” – the newlyweds were aired on the air at this time.
“The weather had returned a million times in the two weeks prior to our wedding, but as of the previous day, it was expected to sink without rain,” Corey recalls. “Before our ceremony, the weather changed and it predicted a 100 percent chance of rain, which no one told me until later. Somehow, it rained in every part of Hamptons, including Westhampton, but it never rained at my grandparents’ house. Shortly after dinner. When all the people entered the tent, the sky changed to orange and pink and a rainbow formed over the water. It was a very magical time, from myth. “
Now, the game. “First course, we wanted something summer and light; we chose Amalfi salad. For the second course, guests could choose a branzino or strip steak. We decided to do a drill so that everyone could get back on the play floor as soon as possible! One of the decorations was double the chocolate brownie with our monogram in gold.
After dinner, the bride changed into a second dress. “I knew I wanted to make time for my king walking down the aisle, but I needed a plan to change to do something smaller before I hit the bottom of the game,” he says. “Katie May is a designer I have admired for years, but I never knew she made the bridal gowns until I came across one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen on her Instagram. He continues: “The dress had a removable skirt, so it looked like three times in one. It hugged right in front of me and made me feel like a goddess of brides. I was caught in a pearl choker by Cult Gaia and Cinderella heels by Amina Muaddi.”
After their meepic (and uber-realistic) groom’s cake at the reception party, the couple went on a classic for a three-tiered wedding cake with white buttercream, decorated with flowers. “We had two flavors, a vanilla cake with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream, and a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream.”
“Taking our band together was an easy decision we made at the wedding,” Corey shares. “The Jenna Wynne Band from Hank Lane was amazing – our guests kept telling us all night that it was the highest band they had ever heard at a wedding. The newlyweds passed TKEES flip flops for the guests to relax, and “no one ever wanted to leave the design, that was our goal!”
“One of my favorite times playing on the floor was when our band played ‘Ocean Avenue’ with Yellowcard, one of our favorite songs,” Corey recalls. “When we asked them to sing, we did not know what our guests would do. But the second time the first guitar sounded, everyone was jumping up and down and shouting each word. It was great! ”
The night had just begun. Before we move on to the back office, it was time for another positive change. “I wanted to celebrate my last night as Corey Golden in style,” the bride says. With the nod of my girlfriend’s name, I transformed into a gold gown adorned with Carolina Herrera that featured the “disco evening” theme of our party.
“Because we knew we wanted to keep the party going, we decided to have our back party at a very attractive bar in Westhampton Beach, Salt & amp; “Loft,” says Corey. French bread, grilled cheese, and pizza. Last words? “The crazy disco ball cake from Pensa.”
As the weekend drew to a close, they were heading for their wedding: “Two weeks in Italy and Greece — Rome, Capri, Positano, and Santorini,” Corey shares.
