Rustic, romantic touches complemented the nautical décor at one couple's summer nuptials.

The couple wed inside Michael's childhood church. "We wanted a piece of both of our worlds to be a part of our special day," Kristin says. Her piece? The couple's reception venue, Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club. "Since we both spent every summer growing up on Long Island beaches, this was the perfect location for us. My best friend's parents are members at the club—I immediately fell in love with it years ago at first sight when she brought me as a guest to sail with her family."
