Molly & Jason were married at 360º East at Montauk Downs. The couple live in NYC and met in high school, at art class. They celebrated their new marriage with family and many mutual friends on a stormy island day.
Mark and I got the chance to photograph together, something we rarely are able to do. The trek to and from Montauk took us on 4 ferries there and 4 ferries back. We stayed at the Montauk Manor, all decked out for Halloween, which has an interesting history involving a wealthy developer in the 1920s who lost his shirt in the Great Depression, but not before building on land that was the site of a Native American fort and battle some 300 years prior. Though it rained heavily Saturday for the wedding, we got to see a quick glimpse of the Montauk Lighthouse, on the eastern most point of Long Island, at ‘the end of the world’ 10 minutes before sunset Friday night.
Molly and Jason’s wedding ceremony and reception both took place inside, upstairs at 360º East at the golf club. Though we normally stay on Nantucket for weddings, we couldn’t say no when asked by Molly’s mother to document the day- she’s only an actual legend photographer, Deborah Feingold. Molly has assisted her mother behind the camera, but on her wedding day it was time to be the star. She was absolutely glowing in her bridal gown, and Jason was all smiles. After dinner, the Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, bagpipers and drummers composed of retired and current NYC firefighters, performed for the guests. Molly’s father is a retired lieutenant in the New York Fire Department and was a first responder on 9/11/01. It was very touching to watch them play, feel the pride and the love.
This was the perfect way to spend our last wedding weekend of the season. Thank you for having us, Molly and Jason. We hope to see you on Nantucket soon! xo
