From Christine Doneé… I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Addie and Andrew for a couple of years now, so when asked to photograph their wedding, I was beyond honored to be a part of this special moment in their relationship. The two of them are down to earth, genuine, warm and extremely kind – they’re just the kind of people that leave a positive mark on your life. And their wedding was no exception.

The ceremony was beautiful and simple, with guests seated at the old Quaker Meeting House and a violinist playing melodies that filled the room with joy and anticipation. Andrew’s dad officiated the ceremony, which made the intimate setting feel even more special. There were tears and laughter, applause and prayers, and Addie’s infectious smile set the tone for the rest of the day.

Having lived on Nantucket for years, the bride and groom wanted their guests to see the Nantucket that the two of them cherish so much. So while we ran off for the formal portraits, the guests were shuttled to Bartlett’s Farm for cocktails and local craft beer in the nursery. The flowers and plants from the farm made up the decor and brought a sense of life and color to the evening. With the sun filtering in through the pergola, a golden warmth filled the room that I can still feel today.

Just off of the nursery was the greenhouse where the reception took place. Paper lanterns, potted plants and cafe lights adorned the room. And while everyone sat at round tables, the meal was served “family style” for a communal and intimate feel. As with everything else, Addie and Andrew created a menu that was intentional and organic, with most of the produce coming from the farm itself. Guests passed around serving dishes and joined in a festive meal together, making you feel like you were at a good friend’s house for dinner.

As the sun was setting, I took the bride and groom out to an open field for portraits were they could have a moment to themselves and take in the day. Once the sun dipped below the horizon and we made our way back towards the greenhouse, we could hear the laughter and chatter from across the farm. It was an incredible celebration of these two people, surrounded by friends and family who truly loved them, and a wedding day that represented exactly who they were.

From White Elephant… Betsy and Colin met through Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. Shortly after, they discovered their offices were across the street from one another; their life together began from then on.

Betsy and Colin became engaged at The Wauwinet, ten months after their first date. After spending ten months as an engaged couple, they were married at White Elephant on June 20, 2015. Betsy professed, “Getting married at the White Elephant has been a dream of mine since I started visiting Nantucket about 15 years ago.”

The wedding was brimming with handmade signs, custom corn hole boards, marquees, lights, custom sunglasses, sparklers, and oodles of flowers. From roses, to hydrangeas, to peonies, the sweet smell of florals wafted throughout the ceremony.

Betsy wore a Reem Acra gown and brought in a bit of southern flair with her parasol (Betsy was born and raised in Dallas, Texas).

The reception was illuminated by musicians that were both family friends and guests. The handmade cake was adorned with individual sugar flowers that looked so authentic, guests thought they might be real. After a lively reception, the newlyweds sailed off into the Nantucket Harbor abyss.

The couple took their honeymoon to Maui and Bora Bora; they now life in New York City’s Chelsea.

From Melissa Jill PhotographyNantucket Island is such a dreamy location, and I really wanted to highlight the beauty of it with this romantic wedding inspiration shoot. I drew all of my inspiration from the setting, which you can see in the colors we included – the muted neutrals of sand and stone, weathered grays and blues of the sea and the local homes, and pinks to echo the cherry blossoms that adorn the island. Our florist, Mary Kate with The Local Bouquet, created a lavish bouquet that reflects those colors and feels very organic. It is tied with a pale gray ribbon from FrouFrou Chic, with trailing ends that drift beautifully in the wind.

Speaking of the breeze, the Sarah Seven dress has a chiffon skirt that provides amazing movement in the sea air. The gentle flow of it makes our model Annamarie look absolutely ethereal.

The invitation suite, created by Jacki Miller with Foil & Ink, harmonizes perfectly with the historic lighthouse setting and with the color palette.

When I think of Nantucket, I always think of this lighthouse, Great Point Light. It sits at the very tip of the island, right where Nantucket Sound meets the ocean. There’s a loneliness and beauty about this remote lighthouse that makes it feel like the very soul of New England.
