Look no fur­ther than the East End for the dreami­est wed­ding venues!

The breath­tak­ing beaches and quaint towns they bor­der have many brides ob­sess­ing a lit­tle (or a lot!) over the Hamp­tons as the per­fect ro­man­tic wed­ding lo­cale. For New York­ers, it can be the des­ti­na­tion wed­ding you long for with­out the stress of ex­ten­sive travel. “It’s the Riviera of Amer­ica!” says wed­ding plan­ner ex­traor­di­naire Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events (212-369-3100; lawrencescot­tevents.com). “Cou­ples can have that feel on the East Coast. If a guest can­not do a whole week­end, they’re not miss­ing out.”

The Hamp­tons abounds with options: in­ti­mate inns such as Top­ping Rose House (top­pin­grose­house .com), The Maid­stone (the­maid­stone.com), and Gur­neys Inn (gur­neys mon­tauk.com); glo­ri­ous vine­yards like Wölf­fer Es­tate Vine­yards (wolf­fer .com), Chan­ning Daugh­ters (chan­ning daugh­ters.com), and Bedell Cel­lars (be­dell­cel­lars.com); and dy­namic cul­tural cen­ters such as the Par­rish Art Mu­seum (par­rishart .org) and Madoo Con­ser­vancy (madoo.org).

Each venue has a distinct per­son­al­ity, so a cou­ple must choose one that feels true to them. “The theme ab­so­lutely has to re­volve around the bride and the groom,” says Scott. Oheka Cas­tle (oheka.com) gives a grand feel, while a sun­set wed­ding at the Har­bor Club (har­bor­clu­bat­prime.com) is a per­fect way to con­nect to the sur­round­ing na­ture. For en­gaged cou­ples, dream­ing of venues is nat­u­ral, and the Hamp­tons is filled with ethe­real options.—c.t.

“IF SOME­ONE can’t Do THE WHOLE WEEK­END, they’re Not MISS­ING out on a Good Fam­ily or FRIEND’S WED­DING.” — larry scott
