The Hamptons Wedding: Jack & Eugenio
Sept. 26, 2015
Jack and Eugenio met at a dinner in New York through mutual friends in 2011. Eugenio proposed in Washington Square Park, right around the corner from where the couple used to live during their first years together. He asked in a way that honored the idea that they were proposing to each other, by asking “would you like to get married?” instead of “will you marry me?”
The grooms felt very strongly about choosing a venue that had a lot of personal significance to both. They felt very connected to East Hampton as Jack spent every childhood summer there, and Eugenio fell in love with it as a result.
Both families were very supportive of Jack and Eugenio, helping to plan both the rehearsal dinner and wedding. The venue also provided a wonderful team with incredible vision who did so much for them. It was a very seamless process aided by the fact that they started planning early with a great support system.
The wedding logo was designed by a friend of the grooms’ and will always be cherished. They applied it to as many different details as they could: invitations, cocktail napkins, gift bags and table cards.
Immediately after the ceremony, the couple took sunset photographs on an expansive golf course that looks over the ocean in East Hampton. This is still their favorite memory of their wedding day.
Eugenio and Jack recommend that other same sex couples not hesitate to do something traditional if it feels right for you as a couple. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
