Renee Ann Forsberg and Roberto Angel Salomon were married on Sept. 15 at the Montauk Point Lighthouse. Former East Hampton Town Justice James R. Ketcham performed the ceremony, and a reception followed at the Navy Beach restaurant in Montauk.
The bride is the daughter of Jon Forsberg of Montauk and Janet Forsberg of Sarasota, Fla. She graduated from Florida State University in Tallahassee with a bachelor’s degree in criminology and earned a degree in culinary arts from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. She has worked for the chef and restaurateur Bobby Flay 11 years and is now his culinary director.
Mr. Salomon, a New York City fireman for the past eight years, holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Villanova University in Pennsylvania. His parents are Linda Boggio of Manorville and Robert Salomon of Staten Island.
The couple met at a bar in New York City almost four years ago. “We saw each other from across the room, but never spoke,” the bride wrote. “After we both left that bar, and several hours later, we ended up seeing each other again at a different location 20 blocks away. We spoke the rest of the night and started dating immediately.”
The bride wore a textured floral strapless gown with an elbow-length veil and carried a bouquet of ivory roses. Her best friend of 35 years, Taryn Philley Masi of Springs, was her matron of honor.
Following a wedding trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the couple is living in Manhattan.
