With breathtaking beaches, beautiful estates, and sprawling vineyards, it's no wonder so many NYC brides choose to get hitched in the Hamptons. From Quogue to Montauk, there's no end to the ceaselessly chic summer activities your guests will enjoy. Be it a posh, country club fête or a chill, surf-inspired Montauk elopement, we've got every East End bridal style covered. Ahead, we're sharing some of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Hamptons and Montauk.
Gurney's Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa
Versatility is paramount at Gurney's Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa. Whether you're planning an intimate beachfront ceremony, a festive celebration in their Farmhouse Ballroom, or a full-out fête on their tented Great Lawn (complete with a guest list consisting of 1,000 of your nearest and dearest), the "wedding specialists" at Gurney's have you covered. Better yet, soak in picturesque ocean views with a cocktail reception at The East Deck. Their concierge service is focused on making your Montauk destination wedding completely customized. An in-house spa provides an idyllic bridesmaid retreat, and the marina houses charter great groomsmen fishing trips.
Wölffer Estate Vineyard
Wölffer Estate Vineyard is the ideal location for a natural, understatedly elegant summer wedding. The vineyard offers a transitional event experience where up to 175 guests can gather around the gazebo for the ceremony. Then, walk through the vines to the winery for cocktails and sit beneath a glass-top stone terrace for dinner before moving on to dancing. The no-tent-needed approach makes for a low-stress experience, rain or shine. Wölffer brides can work two ways: Either rent the space alone, or create a custom experience. Put their in-house team to work: They'll readily give you recommendations for local catering, Hamptons-based floral and design companies, as well as a curated assortment of vendors that suit the aesthetic of the 55-acre vineyard.
Oceanbléu at Westhampton Bath and Tennis
After an oceanfront ceremony, bring guests inside this beautiful ballroom for dinner and dancing with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The recently renovated space defines "seaside chic" with soaring blue and white striped ceilings and lavish jeweled chandeliers—not to mention, service for up to 220 guests. The space is located at the longstanding Westhampton Bath and Tennis, a resort that's known for hosting epic wedding weekends. The hotel has cozy beach cottages to house out-of-town guests who come for the luxe wedding and the festivities to follow—namely, a beach-front bonfire after-party and a celebratory, post-wedding brunch.
When Solé East isn't hosting weddings, it's a laid-back, surf-inspired retreat featuring live music, a heated pool, and garden grounds for the Montauk crew that desires a chill vibe close to—but not directly on—the beach itself (leave that up to its sister property, Solé East Beach). Weddings draw a similar crowd. Couples come for the fabulous food and party atmosphere of this casual-chic venue, with an entry decked in whitewashed floors and glossy Gray Malin-esque art.
The Bridge is not just any Hamptons country club. In fact, it's anything but stuffy, stodgy, or old-fashioned. Owned by a self-made commodities trader who vowed to service his city-chic friends, the venue oozes hip, cool sophistication. Weddings take place in the contemporary clubhouse, a modern building that boasts a sleek architectural design. The venue sits on the grounds of the old Bridgehampton Motor Racing Circuit, Here, pieces of the original race track are incorporated into the golf course, making for stunning views of fairways, guardrails, and flag stations.
Topping Rose House
Topping Rose House is a luxe country inn paired with a high-end farm-to-table restaurant. Known as a fixture to Bridgehamptonites (as well as those traveling further east along the main road where it stately sits), the Topping Rose House includes an acre of farmland on which many of the ingredients for its menu are selected. Couples can wed in the offsite barn or host a more intimate reception in the stylishly designed 75-seat restaurant, which houses an eclectic collection of contemporary art. Guests who stay at the inn won't be disappointed—the poolside scene is a sleek, midcentury juxtaposition against the classic farmhouse.
