dead after Labor Day?
Last weekend, a wedding for 400 guests — including Don Lemon, Joy Behar, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner — included drones, a flash mob and a Debbie Gibson performance, we hear.
When Almond restaurant group’s co-owner Eric Lemonides wed his longtime partner, top Compass agent Lee Felty, at Sagaponack’s Foster Farm, a source told us, “It was an intimate gathering of 400 of their closest friends who enjoyed a flash mob ceremony with aspiring Broadway actors, officiated by journalist Linette Lopez, a 15-minute drone show seen throughout Sagaponack,” and Gibson singing “Lost in Your Eyes” for the couple’s first dance.
The ’80s pop star, 53, then “kicked off three hours of dancing with a 12-minute ABBA medley.”
Also at the nups, planned by Jill Gordon, were events whiz Bronson van Wyck, Pippa Cohen, B-52s singer Fred Schneider, interior designer Jamie Drake, political operator Robert Zimmerman, artist Toni Ross, Brooke Garber Neidich, Almond partner (and Anthony’s brother) Jason Weiner and his wife, Almond Zigmund.
We recently also reported that the season went out with a bang in the Hamptons when real estate magnate Robert “Bobby” Taubman and his new wife, Dallas broker Caroline Summers, hosted a Labor Day bash at Taubman’s East Hampton home, Blue Dream, to celebrate their recent wedding.
The property, by the architects behind NYC’s High Line, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, is the subject of a new tome that came out this month, “Blue Dream and the Legacy of Modernism in the Hamptons.”
An attendee at the party told us, “Mouths and jaws dropped at Blue Dream, the house is a work of art.”
