Kenneth, Maria, and Bradley Fishel welcomed guests to their Bridgehampton, NY estate for their Diamonds On The Fourth Celebration of Independence Day. The Fishel family held the party for family and friends to get together and celebrate the start of the Summer Season. 

Building on their Summer celebration last year, Diamonds On The Fourth set the benchmark for a Summer Party this season in the Hamptons. Event Designer Preston Bailey provided a large white tent, with wooden floors, and the red, white, and blue d├ęcor and lighting. Guests were elegantly dressed to meet the dress code of Red, White and Blue – with Sparkles. A 1920s style dance troope and performers greeted guests as they arrived at this special event. Guests mingled and enjoyed cocktails and the Fourth of July themed hors d'oeuvres on an evening where the weather changed from rain to perfection just in time.

Dinner was the homage to the All-American Summer BBQ with hamburgers, hotdogs, and lobster rolls served to perfection. Before dinner, guests were thrilled by a dance show at the center of the tented soiree. After dinner was served, Kenneth and Maria Fishel each gave speeches thanking everyone who attended and reminding us of the importance of the freedoms we enjoy, as well as a tribute to Maria and Kenneth’s daughter, Melissa. To complete the evening Live Music and a DJ set the musical tone mixing Classic Americana with modern music courtesy of Jordan Kahn Music.
