You have questions, we have the answers!

When do I need to RSVP by?

We ask that you please RSVP by April 5th, 2024 but of course, earlier reservations are greatly appreciated as it helps with planning.

Can I bring a plus one/guest not noted on my invitation?

We have addressed the invitations to the people we would love to come to our wedding. If you received a plus one, then they will appear under your name when you RSVP. Please ensure that you are RSVPing for yourself and your guest. Due to limited space, we are only able to accommodate those guests formally invited on your wedding invitation.

Can I bring my Kids?

We are having an adults-only ceremony and reception. We kindly ask that you leave the kids at home for the celebration.

What should I do if i can't make it?

You will be dearly missed at our wedding! If you cannot make it to the wedding, then please let us know as soon as possible and RSVP "No" so that we can plan accordingly. Thank you so much!

Is there a dress code?

Yes! The dress code is beach cocktail - a balance of elegance and comfort.

For some examples, view our Wedding Fashion Guide.

The Fashion Guide is just that - a guide. Not required by any means! We will still let you in ;)

Because the venue is located on the water, it is quite possible our ceremony will be held on the beach in the sand (weather-dependent) so please keep that in mind when selecting shoes! We would also would recommend a light shawl or jacket if you are prone to getting cold.

Will i be too cold/hot?

The weather in New York can vary in May. The temperature is usually between 60-75 degrees with a light breeze. The ceremony and cocktail hour will be outdoors with evening sunlight (weather dependent); however, the reception will be held indoors. Please plan accordingly based on your comfort!

What time should I arrive?

We ask that you please arrive at 5PM as promptly as possible as to not cause any delays for the ceremony. We have a whole night of fun ahead and don't want to miss any of it! Sparkling wine, tea, and water will be available on arrival.

Can I take pictures during the ceremony?

Of course you may take photos; however, please remain in your seated area during the ceremony as to not disrupt the professional photographers and videographers.

Let's party!
