October 31, 2009 – Jasminka and Jim Wedding – St. Thèrese of Lisieux Church and Gurney’s Inn Wedding
Jasminka and Jim were married at the beautiful St. Thèrese of Lisieux Church in Montauk, a small village in the town of East Hampton, New York and located at the easternmost tip of Long Island. Montauk, like the rest of the Hamptons shares the same beautiful beaches and ocean views of the Atlantic. The St. Thèrese Church was originally built in 1935 but due to its proximity to the Atlantic, it endured considerable wind, water and salt exposure. The church was re-built between 2004 to 2007 and is a mix of old and new, retaining the gorgeous rose window above the front entrance from the original church while the chandeliers are replicas of the original ones. Jasminka wore a simple beaded lace gown with pearls and an ivory fur stole. Her maid of honor, Caroline wore a ruched gown in iridescent mauve taffeta with strappy silver stilettos. Jim wore a classic black tuxedo with a white satin bow tie.
After the wedding ceremony, the couple and their friends celebrated the night away at the historic Gurney’s Inn Resort and Spa which has hosted such famous guests as Elvis Costello, Gene Hackman, Goldie Hawn, Jessica Lange, Kevin Costner, and Hillary Clinton. It is also reported that U.S. President Richard Nixon wrote his acceptance speech at the Skippers Cottage at Gurney’s Inn.
