A Breakwater Wedding in Sag

Carol Marie Salomonson and Kevin Guthrie Santacroce of Sag Harbor were married on Saturday afternoon at the Breakwater Yacht Club in that village. Stake President Barrett L. Richards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officiated. 

A wine and champagne reception with crudités followed at the club, and later a second reception and party was held at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, where the groom works as a sound engineer. There was pizza from Sam’s restaurant in East Hampton and a chocolate fountain with fruit, peppers, and marshmallows. The band Little Head Thinks performed, and D.J. Prince Terrence from Manhattan played. The crowd threw dried flowers as the bride and groom made their exit. 

The next morning, the newlyweds’ families gathered for brunch in the map room at Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor.

Mr. Santacroce is the son of Donna Cosgrove and Peter Santacroce of East Hampton. He grew up here and graduated from East Hampton High School. He is the owner and mix engineer of Shark Studio in Sag Harbor. 

The bride’s parents are Vince Victor Salomonson of South Jordan, Utah, and the late Peggy Lucille Salomonson. She grew up in Maryland and earned a bachelor’s degree in studio arts and media and communications from Hunter College in New York City. She is a licensed real estate saleswoman with the Corcoran Group in Sag Harbor. For real estate purposes, she will continue to go by her stage name, Carol Sharks, but will change her legal name to Carol Santacroce. 

The couple met when she was D.J.ing at the Talkhouse and reconnected two years later while she was on sabbatical in Montauk. “Their first date was to meet at the Hither Hills Overlook for a brisk hike,” on March 9, 2016, the bride wrote. They revisited the site each year on that date, and this year they chose March 9 for their wedding day. 

The bride wore a white Victoria Beckham-designed knee-length dress (bought at the East Hampton Ladies Village Improvement Society’s Bargain Box, she noted, and tailored by Nancy’s Tailoring in Noyac). She carried a bouquet created by Diana Payne with white and blush roses, with ranunculus and other flowers. 

The bride was attended by Adam Aleksander of Manhattan, Harriet Stubbs of New York, London, and Los Angeles, and Jessica Pilot of New York and Los Angeles. Her father gave a speech at the reception.

Mr. Santacroce’s best man was Jason Payne of Sagaponack. Michael Mazzaraco, also a sound engineer at the Talkhouse, was his groomsman.

For their honeymoon later this month, the couple will travel to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka in Japan to see the cherry blossoms.
