Nautical Marblehead Wedding at the Boston Yacht Club

A good old fashioned nautical New England wedding will always rank among my favorites. And after taking a look at Studio Nouveau‘s gorgeous image below, it’s pretty easy to see why. With perfectly chic nods to all things nautical, this gallery is inspiration overload for anyone planning a similar fête.

From The Studio Nouveau…There was no detail too small for Kate & Erik’s breathtaking yacht club wedding. From the personalized maps on the invitations, to the illustrated day-of timeline, to his custom cufflinks with a local nautical chart, to the organic wedding cake, to the sailor’s knots on the back of the reception chairs…we could go on and on. Absolutely nothing was overlooked! Although it was in mid-October, it was one of those spectacularly warm & sunny New England autumn days that made it feel like summer. And there were so many standout moments – the bagpiper playing the recessional, the breeze that made Kate’s floor-length veil into a flawless sail during their portraits – but our favorite had to be the bridal party post-ceremony toast on the yacht club’s private skiff. It was the perfect way to have a few moments of private celebration amongst their close group of friends, and to kick-off the incredible party that was had at the reception! From The Bride…I have a very special memory of looking up at our wedding venue with the bagpiper playing over the water and our guests waving to use from the deck. It wasn’t all ‘smooth sailing’ planning our wedding, but we were both able to take a moment alone that evening and remind each other to cherish each other, everything and everyone that celebrated our wedding day with us.

Well, that’s a whole new level of pretty. And when Christian Oth Studio is behind the lens snapping up every perfect detail - we know we’ve struck wedding gold. See it all here.

From The Bride…Jack and I met in 2009 at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration in NYC through mutual friends. At the end of the day Jack asked for my phone number and I said no! However, over the next few months we kept running into each other and eventually I gave in and we started “hanging out.” We dated casually for about a year before we decided to give our relationship a real try. From there we had the best two years together, testing out different restaurants in NYC for date night, going on vacations together, and after a year, moving in together.

Jack proposed in September 2012 during a trip to Napa. We were flying in to San Francisco and planned to spend one night there before heading out to wine country. Jack had the ring in his pocket the entire flight from New York to San Francisco and was trying to figure out when and where to pop the question. But ultimately he couldn’t wait – right when we arrived to our hotel room, there was a knock on the door and in came a bottle of champagne. Before I knew it, Jack had gotten down on his knee with the most gorgeous ring and asked me to marry him. We then spent the rest of our time in Napa celebrating – enjoying the delicious food and wine and discussing how we envisioned our wedding.

We both immediately thought of Nantucket. We had vacationed there together several times during our relationship and it was a place that was special to the both of us that we wanted to share with our family and friends. We wanted everyone to fall in love with the island like we had – and they did! With a fall wedding, it felt like we had the island to ourselves.

Both of our families and all of our friends really enjoy a good time, so we wanted to make sure to accommodate. We kicked off the wedding weekend with an amazing rehearsal dinner at Cisco Brewery (one of our favorite spots to go after the beach) hosted by Jack’s family. The dinner was complete with lobster, barbeque chicken, the Brewery’s signature drinks and live music.

The day of the wedding started off a little rainy, which had me nervous, but as the ceremony got closer, the clouds parted and the sun started to come out…just in time! The traditional ceremony was held at First Congregational Church, officiated by Reverend Gary Klingsporn and as we left the church, our friends and family tossed glitter (instead of petals) our way. We then had a bagpiper lead the crowd as we all walked from the church down to The White Elephant Hotel for the cocktail hour and reception. The cocktail hour was hosted on the lawn overlooking the harbor and featured passed appetizers and a raw bar. Though I wanted to keep the color palette fairly subtle since the island is so gorgeous on its own, Dawn Kelly from Soiree Floral and I tried to work in my love for sparkles and champagne iwherever we could! We covered the cocktail tables with white and gold sequin chevron linens and tied escort cards to mini champagne bottles to show guests to their seats.

Following cocktail hour, guests were led into a stunning tent for the reception as Jack and I had our first dance as husband and wife to The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey.” From that point on the dance floor was the place to be. As the night came to a close (for some), guests lit wish lanterns for us and let them float up into the night sky. It was truly a picture perfect wedding.

From Yaritza Colon PhotographyThis was a beautiful early Summer (June) wedding at The Eleanor Bradley Estate in Canton, MA – overall it was a very laid back and relaxed day with very simple but lovely details.

The groom is also a musician and that was incorporated when he played a song on his guitar for her during their ceremony.
