From the Bride... Eric and I wanted to have a small wedding, to be surrounded by the people we love and care about the most. We got engaged in Nantucket and knew right away that it was the perfect place for us to be married. And as soon as we walked into the courtyard of the Chanticleer, we both knew that was it. It just felt right. It's absolutely beautiful but felt relaxed and comfortable. It was a bonus was that the food is spectacular. When I started planning the decor for the wedding, my goal was for it to feel comfortable and not too fussy and for the color palette to be soft - pinks, peaches, creams, seafoam greens, gold. Most of our wedding was DIY - we created our invitations, menus, centerpieces (we spray painted the candlesticks gold and all the flowers were done by my very talented aunt). We were lucky because the restaurant is already so gorgeous that we didn't feel the need to go overboard with flowers and decor. I loved the idea of everything being illuminated with a lot of candlelight, so there were lots of candles everywhere.

I think my dress fit the decor and space perfectly - it was flowy and breezy and super comfortable. It actually isn't a wedding dress and I'm excited for when I can wear it again! The day and the entire weekend was beautiful and full of so much love. There were definitley some hiccups and and it wasn't perfect, but the thing I remember most is how happy and loved I felt and that will stay with me forever. Wedding Photography: Henry + Mac | Wedding Venue: The Chanticleer, Nantucket, MA | Officiant: Lisa Ann Donegan | Floral Design: DIY by the Bride's Aunt | Flowers via  Flowers on Chestnut | Beer + Wine: Cisco Brewery, Nantucket | DJ: Phil Taylor of ACK DJ Services | Hair + Makeup : Joey Rose of Rinse in Philadelphia | Wedding Dress: Chloe | Shoes: Miu Miu | Groom's Suit: J.Crew | DIY Details: Bride, Owner of  Home, a furnishings boutique in Philadelphia
