When your family and friends travel from all over the globe to celebrate with you it’s something very, very special. When I asked Emily and Erik what they were most looking forward to on their wedding day they said being surrounded by and celebrating with their family and friends. Every detail of this day was planned out with love and affection for not just the bride and groom but everyone in attendance. You could feel the joy fill the little chapel in Sconset and the energy and excitement was apparent in each toast and of course on the dance floor! Emily and Erik, we hope all your days are filled with the same joy and love and that your travels always bring you back to Nantucket! Cheers! or shall we say Cin Cin!!!!
Nantucket is a VERY special place for Erin and Steve and it showed in every detail of their amazing wedding weekend! When chatting about where these two wanted their wedding day portraits to take place Erin had a list as long as my arm of amazing picturesque locations that all had a special place in her heart. It was clear these two were meant to get married on island! There was so much energy and excitement throughout their weekend of events and it was so easy to see why these two have such amazing friends and family to celebrate with. Erin and Steve I thank you for having me there to capture all those new memories you made on island!

Fall on Nantucket is by far my most favorite time of year on the island. It’s also the most popular time of year for Nantucket weddings! Be sure to pick up the current copy of Wellwed magazines Cape & Islands issue to see one of our happy couples. Congratulations to Melissa and Eric, we are so happy for the two of you and beyond excited to see your wedding on the pages of Wellwed!
Ah Spring! I think it may have finally sprung a bit here in New England. Fiddle-heads are starting to emerge from the ground and buds are popping on nearly everything. I feel like mother nature is taking a big stretch from her winter slumber right now and everything is about to wake up renewed and fresh.
A talented group of wedding professionals took their design ques from this very moment to create the following shoot for Well Wed magazine. I truly enjoy working on shoots like this. I don’t often get to see the creative process of other vendors in action or get to chat through ideas with them as I do in these types of shoots. Seeing how Dawn Kelly from Soiree Floral used non-floral elements to create her bouquet and some of her table elements blew me away! I didn’t even see it at first glance but when I did I couldn’t believe it! How fun to incorporate mushrooms and hand made cabbage rosettes into a bridal bouquet!
You can see several of the images in the current issue of Well Wed Cape & Islands but I had to blog a few of my personal favorites!
