Maybe it's because it's August and our Instagrams have been overflowing with content, but is anyone else out there really over the Hamptons? If you've dreamed of a Hamptons wedding, but the crowds and scene are just not for you anymore, consider a wedding in the North Fork of Long Island. Considered the anti-Hamptons—but equally as close—the North Fork has a unique vibe, ample space, a lot of charm, and just the right amount of coziness that will make your wedding feel personal and warm.
With incredible wine, gorgeous local food, and quaint town vibes, the North Fork is having a moment in 2018. The town of Greenport, less than 100 miles from New York City, overflows with charm, history, a laid-back vibe, and a feeling of getting away from it all. Unlike its neighbors to the South, this part of Long Island has much more of a laid-back vibe, avoiding the night club scenesters, and making it feel like a modern farm town with a lot to offer.
With no shortage of gorgeous venue options, locales perfect for a rehearsal dinner, and activities to keep your guests occupied, here are 5 reasons to consider having a North Fork wedding.
