Wed on the Bay Beach in Gansett

    It was tuxedos and Croc sandals for David A. Steckowski and Adisorn Chaikhram, who were married in an evening ceremony on the bay beach in Amagansett on Sept. 19.

    The couple gathered before a group of family and friends, with their dogs, at the Cross Highway house of Mr. Steckowski’s grandmother Charlotte Hallock as the sun set and the moon came up over distant Napeague.

    Mr. Chaikhram, whose nickname is Ong, wore a white tux with black Crocs and held Minne, their Chihuahua, and Mr. Steckowski, in a black tux with white Crocs, held the Pekinese, Romeo.

    The Rev. Steven E. Howarth of the Amagansett Presbyterian Church officiated and blessed the couple’s earlier civil union and rings. A reception followed on the lawn.

    Mr. Chaikhram is the son of Samruay and Thaveesak Chaikhram of Bangkok, Thailand. Mr. Steckowski is a son of Linda and Dennis Steckowski of Amagansett.

    Mr. Steckowski met Mr. Chaikhram while vacationing in Thailand. He made many return trips to see Mr. Chaikhram, who in 2009 decided to come to the United States.

    The couple live on Cedar Street in East Hampton.
