Raina & Sanjay's Destination Beach Wedding {Hamptons, NY}

January 11, 2015 - by Preeti

A frigid beach wedding you ask? Guests were all wrapped from the whipping wind while the sun shined down on Raina and Sanjay's wedding. They were married at Oceanblue in the Hamptons in early May.

Raina tells us all about their wedding!

We met and were engaged in eight months, then we planned this insane wedding over the next eight. Now, we are expecting our first child less than a year later!!

The most brilliant part of all this change is that nothing was planned. We weren’t looking for anything the night we met, and our child was also one of those pleasant surprises that crop up and give a complete shock.

What prompted the decision to have the wedding at this particular venue?

Sanjay and I were not sure if we wanted to travel too far for our Destination Wedding. While we wanted to be in a magical exotic place, we also wanted all our family and friends present. Well, the Hamptons was the perfect fit. It felt new and fresh, but was not that hard to get to. Oceanbleu, in particular, has a lovely beachfront and a formal sophisticated ballroom…a combination not so easy to find.

What was the 'inspiration' for your wedding style, wedding colors, etc. ?

Modern Indian. I wanted to incorporate my heritage with today’s modern look. I chose to keep the night before Sangeet Party very colorful and traditional and took over a local Vineyard on the North Fork of Long island.

The wedding day and night was more modern and clean. I used only Red and White with clean designs for the most part on the day I got married. This mix kept everyone satisfied.

Did you have any special touches/traditions that you incorporated into your ceremony/reception?

1,000 Roses covered every inch of the alter where we wed on the beach. I felt this contrasted and created a beautiful juxtaposition that I hope was appreciated and will be remembered by my guests.

What are your most vivid memories from the wedding day? Favorite photos?

The cold! It was a cold sunny day in May….one that I will never forget!! My guests were wrapped in blankets and towels on the beach creating a hilarious, but delightful afternoon.
