The Wedding Album
Sarah Bernard and Hugo Lindgren
Bernard Family Home, Bridgehampton, L.I.
May 17, 2003
|Sarah and Hugo, who met at this magazine, married at the bride’s
parents’ home in Bridgehampton under miraculously blue skies.
It had rained the entire week before. “We were all compulsively
checking weather.com,” says Sarah. “It didn’t look
good.” But after a misty morning, the sun came out just as the
florist finished building the chuppah made of birch branches,
white spirea, and mock orange flowers. Their nephews, nieces, and
little cousins handed out programs and scattered white rose petals
down the aisle before the ceremony, which was led by a rabbi but incorporated
both Sarah’s and Hugo’s backgrounds. The couple drank
from a silver cup, which Sarah’s grandparents brought from Poland
50 years ago; the plate it was on belonged to Hugo’s Swedish
grandmother. The glass Hugo broke, however, was their own—it
had been filled with champagne the night Hugo proposed in Gramercy
Park. Everything about the wedding was local: the wine, the beer,
the food, and for dessert, instead of a cake, there were pies from
a favorite farm stand on the North Fork. At the end of the night,
the best man of honor surprised everyone and handed out sparklers
on the dance floor. Says Sarah, “It was so sweet—kind
of like a big fireworks finale.”
