The White Elephant Hotel Wedding by Davina + Daniel
August 15, 2011
New England

I can say with certainty that I never, ever tire of poring over images from a Nantucket fête. Pretty pictures from the Grey Lady just never get old. I have an inkling that the rest of you are on board with me too, particular when those gorgeous images are from Davina + Daniel. It doesn't hurt when the couple tying the knot are as handsome as they come, making the Grey Lady look even more ravishing. Want to see more? Click here for the full gallery of pretty!

From the Bride...Nantucket Island has always had a special place in my heart and for as long as I can remember I have always wanted to get married there.  I spent summers going to the Island for family vacations and I fell in love with its tranquil beauty that seems trapped in time.  When Justin asked me to marry him, I immediately took him to visit Nantucket hoping he would fall in love with it just as I had some years ago.  Lucky for me, when he arrived on the Island he agreed, Nantucket was the perfect place to have our wedding.  We chose the White Elephant Hotel to host our ceremony and reception because it was elegant while allowing the natural beauty of the Island to shine.

What tied our wedding together was the fact that the entire process was a labor of love and that we shared our entire selves with our friends and family in attendance.  A close friend became an officiant and helped put together a beautiful ceremony where we wrote our own vows.  The father of the bride made mini Adirondack chairs for the wedding cake topper as well as a watercolor of the island which we sized down for the tables names, and the father of the groom created a work of art for all the guests as a gift. Our wedding reflected who we are as a couple so we must mention that following the ceremony and dinner we turned the dance floor into a party.  Once the dancing began, not a soul was left in their seat.  This could not have been accomplished without our DJ Mathew Vangel, owner of Master DJ Company.

As most, if not all, brides and grooms, we wanted our wedding day to be one of the most memorable days in our life so we found it necessary to have photographers that would not only capture our day, but capture the spirit and the essence of who we are.  Lucky for us we found Davina + Daniel.  We came across them by pure luck and once we saw their photos it was impossible to think about having any other photographers handle our wedding.  They are artists in the truest form of the word and have allowed us to relive the best day of our lives every time we look at our wedding pictures.
