Kathryn and Leslie in Westhampton Beach, NY

A Manhattan couple hosts an elegant daytime affair by the water

Updated 01/26/06

Katherine and Leslie , both Manhattanites, dreamed of a formal daytime wedding by the water. The Fishmans' seaside home in Westhampton Beach, New York, was just the spot. Their traditional Jewish ceremony was set to music by a harpist, and followed by a meal of filet mignon, lobster tails, and Krug Champagne (Kathryn's favorite).
