- It may have been raining throughout the day on Friday, July 23, but the evening gave way to a partly clear sky and some really good moods as it was was time to celebrate "Mid-Summer" on Main Street in Southampton.
Engel & Völkers once more opened up its famed "Secret Garden" and partnered with Hamptons.com as well as top luxury brands including Mercedes-Benz
and Tamara Comolli
Fine Jewelry for what was an evening of chic luxury. The Village Cheese Shop, Lieb Family Cellars, Star Vodka
, and Berkoski Ice kept guests including author Coerte Felske
, Franz Muster
, Bill Berkoski
, Charles Ferri
and Mrs. Adam Lowenberg
and Gary Andersson
, Juergen Friedrich
, Don Mahoney
, and Susan Bloom
to name but a few delighted with their offerings.
Over 300 guests made their way down a puddled Main Street, passing a mini fleet of luxurious Mercedes-Benz sportcars and sedans, to the Engel & Völkers location to meet hosts Amadeus Ehrhardt
of Engel & Völkers, Nicole B. Brewer
of Hamptons.com, Amy Pelosi
of Mercedes-Benz, and Alec Floyd
of Tamara Comolli Fine Jewelry and raise a glass with new and old friends. After a brief chat with security, guests had a chance to glimpse and enjoy beautiful bling from Tamara Comolli Fine Jewelry within the office. A few lucky guests, including Eileen Casey
and Michele Steudte
of Hamptons.com, were asked to sport the line's necklaces, earrings, and bangles during the party and were loathe to return them at the end of the soiree. Feelings were assuaged as guests were gifted with a bag from Hamptons.com that included a little day-dream inducing reading material from both Engel & Völkers and Mercedes Benz, a catalog and travel goodie from Tamara Comolli, and a gift certificate from Petrossian Gourmet Fine Foods.
Anticipation has already begun to build for the next event coming in August, so keep your ear to the floor about how to get into this ultra-exclusive coming up!
