Wedding on the Waterfront

Manursing Island Club in Rye served as the backdrop for this elegant fête.

With temps finally warming, we thought it was time to share Abbie and Matthew’s waterfront wedding. Manursing Island Club in Rye was the ideal light-and-airy locale, for these Greenwich natives to say ‘I do’ under a white tent overlooking the water. For the reception, “I was looking to [create] a warm and cozy feel,” explains Abbie who softened the look of the formal dining room with candlelight and floral centerpieces that had an organic, purposefully overgrown feel. A seafood-heavy menu featured a shore-appropriate raw bar, and guests ended the night with dancing in a beachfront tent lit by twinkle lights. Inspired by Grace Kelly, Abbie chose a long-sleeved lace gown from a Marchesa collection named for the style icon. “It was the epitome of what I wanted to look like on my wedding day,” says Abbie. “Classic but with a twist and lovely detail.”
