Walked Down a Gansett Allée

Samuel Pierson Glinn and Lindsey Kikyo Kawamura

Samuel Pierson Glinn and Lindsey Kikyo Kawamura were married on Saturday at a small ceremony in Nina Gillman’s garden on Windmill Lane in Amagansett.

William Menaker, newly ordained in the Universal Life Church Ministries, conducted the ceremony, and Paul Ukena, the groom’s godfather, provided accompaniment on guitar. The couple had written their own vows, and as a few raindrops fell, the bride delivered hers through tears.

Ms. Kawamura, 34, head of production at Kara, a New York City handbag company, wore a dress of soft tiers of voile in an asymmetrical cut that she designed herself. She was attended by her maid of honor, Anna de Castro, and her bridesmaids, Christine Fan Wang and Laura Hong. Flowers were by Flowers by Beth of Amagansett. The two-part ring, a gray diamond, was designed by Bliss of N.Y. based on the bride’s specifications. 

Seiji Kawamura of Fremont, Calif., a retired physics and chemistry teacher, walked his daughter down the allée of flowers. Ms. Kawamura’s brother, Matthew Kawamura, accompanied the couple’s dog, a shiba inu named Kona, down the aisle. Ms. Kawamura’s mother, Candice Kawamura, is retired after a career as a project manager at Stanford University.

Mr. Glinn, a co-owner of and chef at OTB, a bar and restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was escorted down the allée by his mother, Elena Prohaska Glinn, and his godmother, Rima Vargas-Vetter. He is the son of the late Burt Glinn, who was a renowned photographer with Magnum Photos. His best man was Rudi Hanja; his groomsmen were Charles Iulo and Michael Flowers.

Following the ceremony, the guests had dinner, beginning with a raw bar by Lobster Limo of Sagaponack and going on to a family-style dinner provided by Joachim Baca, a chef and longtime friend and colleague of Mr. Glinn’s. Alla Lapushchik, a co-owner of OTB, provided special drinks in honor of the couple. The wedding cake, glowing with sparklers, was by Carissa Waechter of Carissa’s Bakery in East Hampton.

The couple will live on Spencer Street in Brooklyn.
