Continuing our blog series featuring Wilson Stevens bands performing Nantucket weddings this summer, is Megan and Jon’s wedding at Wauwinet Harbor with Beantown. Married in a beach ceremony on a beautiful afternoon in June, Megan and Jon’s wedding day was a fun-filled celebration. Determined to leave stuffiness at the door, the bride beamed a million watt smile all day, even when some unexpected beach goers interrupted photos!
Zofia & Co. Photography was on hand to capture all of the lively moments, and recalled how Megan wanted a big party full of enjoyment to celebrate her and Jon’s new marriage. The party went late into the Cape Cod night thanks to Beantown, who had every single guest up and dancing to their amazing sets.
While a small island, Nantucket holds countless cozy hotels and luxurious clubs and restaurants that make ideal settings for a variety of weddings. Continuing our blog series highlighting weddings on Nantucket that Wilson Stevens bands performed at this past summer is Jen and Wayne’s celebration which took place at Galley Beach.
Boasting an “elegant but casual” atmosphere, Galley Beach‘s restaurant has enjoyed countless accolades over the years. But it’s their stunning beachfront views that created the perfect scenery for Jen and Wayne’s late September wedding.
After Jen walked down a boardwalk inspired aisle, the couple exchange vows overlooking the ocean. But before letting loose to The Hub at their reception, the couple took advantage of Nantucket’s idyllic backdrops. Jen and Wayne posed for photos with a vintage fire truck (which belonged to The Nantucket Hotel) as well as the quaint village streets.
All summer long, our Wilson Stevens bands have been returning from Nantucket, a resort island off of Cape Cod, with gorgeous photos and touching stories of beautiful weddings and events at which they have performed. As a final farewell to the warmer months, we’ll be sharing a series of posts highlighting the couples, photographers, and venues that Wilson Stevens bands have had the pleasure of working with on this picturesque island.
Kate and Carter got married on a crisp, clear fall day on Nantucket Island last month. BOSS‘ energy and enthusiasm was a perfect fit for this non-traditional couple and all of their wedding choices. Kate and Carter surrounded themselves with loved ones, a bridal party of almost 3o friends and family! Kate’s bridesmaids wore beautiful blue unique dresses, and the bride herself chose a Stone Fox Bride gown and flower crown perfectly suited to the personalized charm of the day.
The ceremony had wonderful musical touches, the crowd singing John Denver‘s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” followed by a rose petal toss and oysters with champagne to wash it all down. The party then moved to The Nantucket Hotel, a beautiful and laid-back space that fit the couple’s colorful joie de vivre. It also provided the perfect setting for the newlyweds and their guests to dance late into the night with BOSS.
Enjoy all of Kate Kazier‘s fabulous photos from the evening in the gallery below!
In 1974, Stephen Spielberg began filming a little movie called Jaws on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. The rest, as they say, is history. After almost 40 years, Cape Cod residents, and movie-goers in general, have loosened up on the film’s “don’t go in the water” mantra, partly thanks to 30 years of CGI advancements rendering the mechanical shark not-so-menacing after all. But Cape Cod hasn’t seen the last of the Great White, and Chatham, MA in particular has seen its share of sharks this past summer. Just this past Tuesday a 15-foot Great White was spotted feeding in Boothbay Harbor. Maybe he was stocking up on snacks for the start of Shark Week 2013 on Monday, but we think he was headed to Chatham to attend the Chatham Sharks Gala at Chatham Bars Inn.
Who could blame him, with members of EYE2EYE performing and a silent auction of Sharks in the Park artwork, all washed down with CBI’s signature “sharktail?” Sharks in the Park creates a unique experience for Chatham residents by combining public art with the local business community. Conceived and sponsored by local artists and businesses, the 56 shark sculptures auctioned off were much more approachable (not to mention more beautiful!) than Jaws‘ original star. Check out just a few of our favorites in the gallery below! One bidder won a trip aboard the research vessel piloted by OCEARCH, a nonprofit shark research organization that partnered with Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution after the noticeable spike in Cape Cod shark sightings earlier this season.
The net proceeds from the Chatham Sharks Gala are being donated by the Chatham Merchants Association as the seed money to the newly established, nonprofit Foundation, to create a Chatham Shark & Marine Life Center. Located right in Chatham, the “Shark Center” will provide a window to Cape Cod’s coastal community. By bringing together marine scientists, oceanographers and ecologists to study and learn, the Center’s goal is to educate and inspire people of all ages to better understand and appreciate the region’s affinity for wildlife. Now that’s a cause we can sink our teeth into.
