Ashley and Steven met on Fire Island in New York - it's also where he happened to propose. Today's bride describes the island as a "magical place." It was only natural that they find a space that replicated that feeling. The Wainwright House with its soft stone mansion and impressive lakeside views seems to be a hidden little gem nestled amongst exquisite gardens, trees and lawns with the bonus of a 17th century chateau. The Wainwright House also happens to be the oldest non-profit, non-sectarian holistic learning center in the United States. Join us and experience tranquility and inspiration on Wainwright House's five acres of organic lawns and gardens overlooking Milton Harbor on Long Island Sound. Everything about this wedding reflects sophistication and elegance for the outdoors. From the outdoor arch that has a slight rustic flair with birch branches and accents of soft, lush floral with billowing drapery to little cherubs chosen to be their flower girls and ring bearers. We can't get enough of the images that illustrate childhood innocence. Ashley and Steven ensured that their guests danced all night long under a fairy light draped ceiling - working up an appetite from all the dancing guests. The grand finale? A delicious Ben and Jerry's cart filled with various flavors.
