We had the best long weekend on Nantucket! It was the first of many trips to the island this summer and this time we went up with my parents and brother Camden to get a jump start on planning our September 2017 wedding. We met with potential reception venues, rehearsal dinner venues, florists, a tent company, and even a realtor to work on finding housing for all of our guests. There were definitely highs and lows as far as meeting with vendors went but all in all it was such a productive few days and a beautiful weekend in my favorite place on earth! Only 458 days until the big day…! 😉

{This house on Baxter Road was in my family from the 1890s to the 1970s. My mom grew up spending summers here overlooking the Atlantic — not jealous at all. 😉 I was thinking of doing a Wedding Wednesday post about why Nantucket is so special to us — would any of you be interested?}

  2. I would love to hear more about all of your special memories from Nantucket! My husband and I went there on our honeymoon so it has so many wonderful memories for us! Congratulations on your engagement, I know the wedding will be beautiful.

  3. We spent summers on Martha’s Vineyard as a family and I always say if I ever get married it has to be there and small an intimate.

  5. Yes to a Wedding Wednesday post on Nantucket! I’ve never been, but it looks beautiful. One of my friends got married in Cape Cod years ago and it remains one of my favorite weddings I’ve ever attended. The location was beautiful and it was so unique from the other weddings I’ve attended. I imagine Nantucket has some of the same elements!

  6. Nantucket looks absolutely stunning! I’ve always wanted to go, and these pictures have me looking for an Airbnb for the summer. I’d definitely love to hear about why Nantucket is so special to you and why you chose to have your wedding there!
