Wedding Date, July 7, 2016 - Oceanbleu, Westhampton Beach
Erica and Entienne were originally planning an intimate destination wedding in the Virgin Islands. However that all changed with the current status of the Zika Virus. The Long Island couple knew for the safety of their guests, they had to make a change of wedding destination plans. They knew they wanted an oceanfront location to celebrate their vows and selected Oceanbleu, in Westhampton Beach. With only three months to plan a wedding, William Cataldo, Oceanbleu's Director of Events, contacted many of the elite professionals on EastEndWeddingGuide.com to deliver the wedding of their dreams for nearly 200 guests.
For the beach ceremony, the couple selected elegant sounds of harpist, Emma. It was a beautiful ceremony with many tears of joy as the couple read their own personal vows. Cocktail hour took place on the deck covered by NY Tent.
One of the Erica and Entienne goals was to dance all night. And danced they did. Right after the first dance the dance floor erupted with a Hora followed by Justin Timberlake's, Can't Stop The Feeling. That feeling certainly did not stop. The crowd's energy was amazing throughout the reception. Out of the four hour reception, guests had only about 45 minutes to rest their feet during speeches and dinner. Even when Event Planner, reminded the newlyweds to get a photo with the cake, but the newlyweds continued to dance. Mission accomplished.
The evening was capped off with a beach bon-fire accompanied with East End Entertainment's Jonny Ray on acoustic guitar and vocals.
Congratulations to Erica and Entienne. We wish you many years of happiness.
