We always get so excited for our couples when their amazing wedding days are showcased on their favorite blogs. This past week brought us two amazing features on every brides go to blog Style Me Pretty. Filled with the best of the best in wedding vendors and on trend wedding inspirations Style Me Pretty has become the online bible for  planning a wedding. To say we are ecstatic is an understatement!

The Nantucket wedding of Sarajill and Connor last fall was elegant and simply put stunning. White, white and more white filled the deck at the White Elephant. Dawn Kelly and her team at Soiree Floral really hit this one out of the park! You can see the full feature here.

 

 

 

The summertime nuptials of Brandy and Dan took place at a private home on Nantucket Island. Soft hues of pink and coastal elements took center stage for their wedding decor. The team at Soiree Floral did it again with every little detail well thought out. Unique Nantucket took care of the wedding day plans so the couple could just sit back and enjoy their picture perfect day. Just so happens that a little carnival was in town just down the street so we took full advantage of the pink scenery for a photo-op!  You can see their feature on the new Massachusetts section of Style Me Pretty.

 

 

Erin and Doug know how to do a Nantucket wedding! Every little detail to their day was quintessential Nantucket. The vintage car, Nantucket basket cake, Vineyard Vines ties, Whale belts, Brant Point portraits and all the hydrangeas! It just goes on and on!

Post ceremony the happy couple hit the beach with their wedding party for some casual portraits. The bright blue sky was the perfect backdrop to their preppy pink and navy colors! Erin and Doug strolled Main Street with me for a few more photos before heading to the White Elephant for their cocktails and reception. Their guests cheered as they walked onto the ocean side lawn and the true celebration began.

Just before the sun set for the night we took advantage of the docks in front of the White Elephant for a few quick photos. I had never seen the harbor so calm… it was breathtaking! Once seated on the deck for the reception the spirited toasts took center stage. Everyone was laughing and enjoying the touching toasts that family and friends put together for the happy couple.

The celebration then continued on the dance floor with some major dancing…. but who knew the stars of the dance floor would be those quiet ring bearers!

Best wishes to Erin and Doug! With family and friends like yours I am certain your life together will always be one to celebrate.

This fun filled spring Nantucket wedding is in need of a two day post! I couldn’t narrow down all the amazing details and fun portraits for just one post, so for today we will start with Erin and Doug’s rehearsal dinner, getting ready and their ceremony. Next post we can dive into the reception fun, and there is TONS of fun!

Erin and Doug kicked off their wedding weekend with an intimate dinner at one of their favorite downtown restaurants, The Boarding House. There was so much excitement as guests arrived fresh off the boat to hugs and cheers! Doug and Erin have an amazing spirit to them and were hilarious to work with, comes with the territory I guess as Doug is a comedian by trade.

The next day I met Erin, her parents and bridesmaids as they gathered to get Erin ready for the big day. Smiles and laughter filled the room but you could feel the nervous excitement as the vintage car rolled up the tiny side street to take Erin and her father to St. Mary’s church. Erin looked amazing as her bridesmaids pinned her veil in place just before she joined arms with her father to walk down the aisle. Their ceremony was just like the rest of their weekend … filled with smiles, laughter, family and friends! I just adored working with these two and can’t wait to bring you the rest of their big day…. stay tuned!
