Allison Muench's engagement to J.P. Williams lasted four years because they couldn't find the right place to get married. Then a mutual friend told Martha Stewart of the couple's dilemma, and she agreed to lend them her house in East Hampton, New York. They collaborated with friends, borrowed from clients, stayed up late night after night, and pulled together a wedding that was a perfect expression of their style, a fusion of old and new, classic and modern.

The bridesmaids wear dresses by Nicole Miller and carry lady's mantle. The bride carries a bunch of Eucharis. The men, dressed in custom-made Italian tuxedos, received their hand-monogrammed pocket squares as gifts from the groom.
