Oheka Castle Wedding | Michele and Robert

Today is the day I get to share Michele and Robert’s Oheka Castle Wedding with you! I’m so excited to share a peek into their day. This wedding is going to have you swooning from start to finish! But first, a few details about the couple and their day, because everyone loves a good love story, right?

The Couple

Michele and Robert met when Michele joined a share house in Ocean Beach, Fire Island, which Rob managed. Their relationship developed from that point and they dated for three years. When it was time for Rob to propose, he had the sweetest idea. He took Michele back to the same beach house where they met for the very first time and popped the question there!

This sweet proposal idea is just one of the ways I have seen how thoughtful Rob is with Michele. He always wants to make her feel special. His biggest concern throughout the wedding planning process was making sure that Michele was happy. And happy she was! As soon as the gates opened for them during their first visit to Oheka Castle, she knew it was fate. Oheka Castle would be the place where they would tie the knot. Rob made Michele’s wish of a fairy tale wedding come true. And the fairy tale was complete with a vintage romantic theme and a real-life castle!

The Details

When I first started working with Michele on her wedding day, she had been feeling a little overwhelmed with the small details that were still outstanding. We started working together a couple of months prior to her wedding and it was a pleasure managing this beautiful wedding day. Not only did I get to work with a sweet couple but I also got to work at one of the most stunning venues in the Tri-State Area. The Oheka Castle mansion is located in a beautiful area of Long Island and looks like a gorgeous French chateau. It is a truly unique palace that is the epitome of elegance and refinement. It is the perfect place to host a wedding, too, as it was originally built with the intention of hosting lavish parties!

Wedding  Ceremony

On the day of the wedding, a harpist welcomed guests as they entered the castle for the ceremony and set the tone for the romantic wedding that Michele had dreamt of. Needless to say, the guests were quite impressed with the venue. Throughout the day, they enjoyed discovering the castle and its grounds. At the reception, they were greeted with unique seating cards on vintage keys before entering the ballroom. Once inside the ballroom, you couldn’t help but notice the stunning centerpieces complete with hanging pearls. The centerpieces actually ended up being Michele’s favorite decor piece because they tied in all the small details of the day to complete her vision. It was a pleasure being a part of Michele and Rob’s day and I’m excited for you all to see the images captured by Ricky Restiano.

Wedding Reception

Michele entrusted us with designing all the paper goods at the reception and we thoroughly enjoyed designing the seating cards, menu, and favor cards. We carried the vintage theme through all of the designs and it came together perfectly.
