Erica and Riva on Shelter Island, NY

One couple holds their wedding at a cozy, tucked-away inn on Shelter Island.

"We wanted our wedding to feel like a vacation, but without the hassle and expense of travel," says Erica. "We agreed that Shelter Island would be perfect. It's beautiful, relaxing, and just a short distance from New York City." After looking at the options, they decided to host the event at the Ram's Head Inn, a sprawling estate on a remote part of the island.
