Nestled on Long Island’s Sands Point Preserve is the ever-charming Hempstead House estate. Surrounded by 216 acres of land, this historic property has all the Downton Abbey vibes inside and out, making it the ultimate romantic setting for Emily and Adam’s modern Jewish wedding.
Their May nuptials meant sunny skies and perfect weather, not to mention amazing in-season florals for Emily’s bridal bouquet. She carried a blend of bright pink peonies, white roses, and white hydrangeas for a bloom blend that complemented her classic Jim Hjelm wedding gown.
After the couple’s first look inside the estate, they gathered their loved ones and the Rabbi for the ketubah signing before it was off to the chuppah. Guests were greeted with pink lemonade for the outdoor ceremony as they witnessed Emily and Adam pledge their lives and love.
Of course, the festivities continued with a cocktail hour in the garden and an indoor reception for dinner and dancing. From the first dance to the hora to heartfelt toasts and dessert (a donut AND pie bar!), their wedding celebration was a day their guests won’t soon forget.
