Shelter Island Chic

Katie and Paul loved Shelter Island so much; they decided to purchase a summer home just down the block from their charming wedding venue, the seaside resort, Rams Head Inn. Shelter Island can only be reached by ferry, which inspired a whimsical travel theme from the charming watercolor maps on their invitations to the hand-painted compasses on each place setting. Katie and Paul's homemade hot sauce and personalized photo escort cards were the perfect bespoke touches. Tailored linens, soft florals and timeless elements combined to create a casual, welcoming al fresco gathering for friends and family.  Vintage string lights hung playfully between the trees, creating a canopy above the outdoor dining space.  No passport required.
