Carol Marie Salomonson and Kevin Guthrie Santacroce of Sag Harbor were married on March 9 at 3 PM at the Breakwater Yacht Club in Sag Harbor by Stake President Barrett Richards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The wedding was followed by a wine and Champagne reception at the club and a later wedding party at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, where guests enjoyed pizza from Sam’s Restaurant on Newtown Lane in East Hampton and a chocolate fountain. The band Little Head Thinks and DJ Prince Terrance of Manhattan provided the entertainment. The crowd threw dried flowers as the bride and groom made their exit.
The bride wore a knee-length dress and carried a bouquet created by Diana Payne of white and blush colored roses, ranunculus, baby’s breath, and other flowers.
The bridal party consisted of Adam Aleksander of Manhattan, Harriet Stubs of New York, London, and Los Angeles, and Jessica Pilot of New York and Los Angeles. The groom’s best man was Jason Payne of Sagaponack, and his groomsman was Michael Mazzaraco of Amagansett.
A brunch at the Map Room at Baron’s Cove was held the following Sunday for the bride and groom’s families.
The couple met first when the bride was working as a DJ at the Talkhouse, where Santacroce works as a sound engineer. They reconnected two years later when she was taking a sabbatical in Montauk. Their first date was hiking at Hither Hills and their wedding was on the second anniversary of that date.
The bride, originally from Maryland, is the daughter of the late Peggy Lucille Salomonson and Vince Victor Salomonson of South Jordan, Utah. She is currently a real estate salesperson at the Corcoran Group in Sag Harbor, as well as a musician and DJ. She obtained bachelor of arts degrees in studio arts and in media and communication from Hunter College in New York City. While she is legally changing her last name to Santacroce, she will continue to go by “Carol Sharks” for professional purposes.
The groom’s parents are Donna Cosgrove and Kenneth Cosgrove of East Hampton, and Peter Santacroce of Hampton Bays. Santacroce graduated from East Hampton High School in 1996 and is the owner and mix engineer of Shark Studio in Sag Harbor.
The couple, who will live in Sag Harbor, will honeymoon in Japan later this month to see the cherry blossoms.
