The bride's traditional style and love for navy and white entrenched all decisions on their wedding day - from linens to jewelry. French’s Point made it easy - the luscious Maine coastline provided a dreamy setting, and all of Alley and Jon’s closest family and friends were able to stay together on the property for three days of celebrations. The style was a mix of new and old - Alley wore her grandmother’s jewelry, her best friend’s veil from her Tulum wedding two years before, and a new dress: Chosen by One Day, ironically the last one she tried on with her cousin Birdie, after eating lobster rolls and drinking white wine in the West Village of New York City one fall afternoon.
Alley insisted on a first look, as to not miss any time with her friends during the cocktail hour after the ceremony. The wedding was officiated by a dear friend the couple met in business school - complete with a Breaking of the Glass.
At 9:00pm sharp, guests were drawn to the lawn for a marvelous display of fireworks - a true 4th of July tradition. The couple closed out the music set with their favorite bar closing song, Kenny Roger’s “The Gambler,” although the tequila kept flowing, leading to a few late night dips in the bay! In true covid-fashion, the couple honeymooned in East Hampton where their home was quickly dubbed “Camp Honeymoon” as they hosted guests and enjoyed more time with friends who they had not seen for many months. It was the perfect way to end a postponed wedding celebration and the beginning of their “official” new lives together.
