Lee Randaccio and Logan Berkowitz met at work—a startup in New York City. The began as best friends, and everything changed when he invited her to a Justin Bieber concert, which she didn’t realize was a first date.

After three years together, he proposed while they vacationing at Château de la Messardière in Saint-Tropez—their happy place. As they were taking photos at sunset with his camera on a tripod, he got down one one knee. After Lee said yes, they made their way to the bar for cocktails and were surprised by both their mothers. “He had them fly across the country for this moment, and it was the best idea he’s ever had,” Lee shares. “We had the best night out just the four of us at Saint-Tropez party spot L’Opéra.

Chatham Bars Inn in Cape Cod is a special place for the couple and their families, as they both grew up vacationing in the area. “I’ve wanted to get married there since I was a little girl,” Lee says. The engaged pair originally planned for a June 27, 2020 wedding, but due to Covid, they legally wed on June 26, 2020 and postponed their larger celebration to June 18, 2021. For the aesthetic of the day, the bride “wanted to blend in with the area—think picket fences, Cape Cod cottages, light blue hydrangeas—but add a little modern spice.”

To find her wedding dress, Lee went to six different bridal boutiques in New York City. She knew she wanted something unique with 3D flowers and was against a mermaid silhouette. Spina Bride ended up having “the one” by Dalaarna Couture. And since Logan loves Christian Louboutin, they decided to both wear red bottoms at the altar—Lee purchased her first pair for the occasion.

On the day-of, the bride got ready with Lisa George, who gave her a natural beauty look, while bridesmaids put on their dusty blue long dresses from Birdy Grey. Groomsmen wore light blue suits to complement Logan’s from Isaia. The groom also gifted his party Hermès ties that looked great next to his own.

On the most beautiful sunny day, Lee walked down aisle, lined with flowers by Sayles Livingston Design, with her father. Logan and their officiant, Jenks—a friend who worked with the couple and initially “forced” him to ask her out—were waiting at the altar. “We were hesitant to write and read our own vows, but we decided to at the last minute—one thousand percent worth it,” Lee says. “I barely made it two sentences in without crying, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience.”

The indoor-outdoor reception followed the ceremony. Decor on the dinner tables consisted of blue floral napkins, white and blue florals, dusty blue taper candles, and gold silverware. Lobster salad with white truffle vinaigrette, lemon sole piccata, and beef tenderloin with citrus risotto and asparagus were served. And their wedding cake was a combination of Funfetti with lemon mousse and fresh blueberries and chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting. “I love chocolate, and Logan loves Funfetti, so we had to have both,” Lee explains.

The rest of the night was filled with dancing with the band, Boss from Wilson Stevens. The newlyweds had their first dance to “Red Lights” by Tiesto. Their DJ Autograf made a custom remix with an acoustic beginning, followed by the EDM beat drop.

A memorable point in the evening was when Lee’s bridesmaids surprised everyone with a choreographed dance routine to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” And a especially sweet moment of the night was during the father-daughter dance, when Lee says it only felt natural to grab her mother to join them, followed by her brother, sister-in-law, and finally, Logan. “It was such a beautiful moment and a memory I’ll have forever,” the bride shares.

After the reception, another room was transformed into a Saint-Tropez nightclub, dubbed “Club Leegan”—a nod to their mashed up couple name. The venue had neon lights, sparklers, plenty of champagne, full-size cutouts of the couple, masquerade masks, and more! Lee’s mother also arranged for four burlesque dancers to perform at the beginning to kick things off.

The after-party slowed down at 1:00 a.m. No one wanted to leave, so the revelry continued in the lobby with chicken fingers and fries. Lee concludes, and very rightly, “The perfect ending to a perfect night.”
