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.
We first came across Weddings by Two‘s photographs of Anne and Marc’s wedding when their florist, Steven Bruce Design, posted about the eco chic summer wedding on his blog. We were dazzled by the bold yet natural color palette used in their arrangements, as well as how accents of ivy, moss and eucalyptus were incorporated into bouquets and centerpieces. While very much a summer wedding, we’re seeing similar rustic themes carry over into fall floral trends using warmer, jewel toned colors like wine, gold and evergreen.
The Moss, Hydrangea, Clematis, and Gladiolus helped soften the industrial feel of The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls in New York, while Nigella Flowers, Artichoke, Money Tail, and Scabiosa followed in the building’s modern lines. All of the arrangements were housed in boxes of wood, metal, and cork, keeping with the couple’s contemporary yet natural theme.
But enough about flowers, it’s time to party! Anne and Marc and their friends and family let loose singing and dancing with Beantown until the very last minutes of their reception. Make sure to check out the gallery below, which is packed with great photos by Weddings by Two of this couple’s creative and ravishing wedding.
But it wasn’t the first time we had heard of Dreamlove, and we’ve been (not so) silently swooning over their dreamy and romantic wedding photos for some time now. Katie and her husband Max shoot every wedding together, and their ability to see the joy and sweetness in every moment is evident not just in their photos, but their heartfelt descriptions as well:
“One of my favorite things about the day was being able to photograph a small box filled with a letter and sentimental gifts from Nicole’s late grandfather. He wrote her the letter before he passed, and she saved it for her wedding day to open it. Nicole and Dan went with a pink and gray color theme for their reception, and against the pale blue backdrop of the ocean outside, it was perfect. The Wychmere on it’s own is an absolutely gorgeous venue, with chevron wooden floors and unique architectural elements around every corner, but with the help of Cape Cod wedding planner, Allison Wildes Liset, their reception was even more beautiful with various decorative details. Every table was draped the most gorgeous crushed organza fabric as a tablecloth, and an overflowing centerpiece of white and green flowers was surrounded by simple pillar candles for ambiance.
I’m not sure who made the decision on hiring Eye 2 Eye as the band for the evening but we were blown away by this band! We felt like we were at a live concert on the dance floor… it was epic. Also, I’m pretty sure Max snuck a video of me dancing (while shooting) to their music that may end up on our Facebook page at some point if you ever want a good laugh. ;)”
We’re beyond flattered, Dreamlove. The feeling is mutual!
Nestled between Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound, Cuttyhunk Island very well may be Cape Cod’s best kept secret. Having worked on thousands of events throughout New England over the last 30 years, Cuttyhunk was one destination Wilson Stevens had never ventured. And locals like it that way, often approving newcomers’ “intentions” before asking if they’ll return to the small patch of land that feels all but forgotten since its discovery by the English in 1602.
No need for more than just one market, one raw bar, or one ice cream shop, the island’s (unofficial) website boasts that the best thing to do on Cuttyhunk Island is a “whole lot of nothing.” But on an afternoon late in June, Cuttyhunk’s typical cloud coverage broke to make way for perhaps the best activity the island could hope to host. Christine and Bo’s wedding.
With so few distractions, guests couldn’t help but lose themselves in the magic surrounding the island, and Christine and Bo. Vibrant in their simplicity, Channing Johnson‘s photos evoke the feeling that nothing, and no one, other than the couple and their loved ones existed as they danced deep into the night to One Step Ahead.
