Mets Fans Wed in Cooperstown

Anthony Charles Daunt and Erica Jeanne Silich of Springs.

Anthony Charles Daunt and Erica Jeanne Silich of Springs are “huge baseball fans” whose hearts belong not only to each other but also to the Mets, so it makes sense that they chose to be married in Cooperstown, N.Y., home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. 

Kim Hren, who was ordained by the Universal Life Church, officiated in a ceremony on Sept. 21 at the lakeside Otesaga Resort Hotel. The bride and groom wrote their own vows. 

The groom’s parents are Angela and Richard Daunt of Montauk. The bride is the daughter of Linda and Andrija Silich of East Hampton. 

They both graduated from East Hampton High School — the groom in 2010 and the bride in 2011. He went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in photography from the State University at Oneonta, and she earned her B.A. in sociology and anthropology from High Point University in North Carolina. 

The two were reintroduced by his sister, Lacey Daunt, and began dating in 2014. He proposed to her in August, 2017, during the annual Travis Field Memorial Softball Tournament at the Terry King ball field in Amagansett. The timing had special meaning for the bride, whose best friend, Kady Field of Springs, is Travis Field’s sister. 

Lacey Daunt was the maid of honor. Ms. Field was a bridesmaid along with the groom’s other sister, Frances Daunt, Casey Staubitser, and Thea Grenci, all of Montauk, Natalie Sequeira of East Hampton, Allie Mentuck of Marblehead, Mass., Ally Astone of Somers, Conn., Jill Callahan of Red Bank, N.J., and Kristie Marano of Franklin Lakes, N.J.

The groom’s brother, Richie Daunt, was the best man. His groomsmen were the bride’s brothers, Matthew Silich and Patrick Silich of East Hampton, Dylan Field, Derek Field, and the bride’s cousin Steven Bahns, all of Springs, his cousins Pat Fallon and Leo Daunt of Montauk, and Lenny Giannantoni, also of Montauk. Tim Schad of East Hampton, who is serving in the Navy and was unable to attend the wedding, was an “honorary groomsman,” the bride said. 

The bride’s cousins Isabella Frederick of Danbury, Conn., and Austin Bahns of East Hampton and the groom’s cousin Zoe Daunt of Montauk were readers.

The bride wore a Theia Nima dress and carried a bouquet of white roses, blush peonies, eucalyptus, and astilbe. The bridal party wore dark green maxi dresses, and the groomsmen wore light gray suits with dark green ties. 

The groom is a maintenance supervisor for Groundworks landscaping. The bride is the marketing and events coordinator for Groundworks.
