A chill is finally in the air as we head in to the holiday season. We still long for the days of summer so today we thought we’d share our beautiful couple Denise and Michael’s June wedding at the Great Harbor Yacht Club on Nantucket. This was a fun one for us to put together. Michael popped the question on Valentine’s Day and before Denise knew it, they were planning a June wedding (June, as in 4 month’s away) and it went from a small affair to a party with the all their close friends. Denise was a trooper. Not only was she planning a wedding in four months, she was also building a home and was very hands on with the interior decorating.
We met a few times in NYC before Denise’s dress fittings and a few times on island. Among Michael’s many talents, he’s a pilot so that it made quite convenient when they needed to head up for wedding meetings.
Denise was adamant that they host their guests with several days of activities. A welcome party at their new home kicked things off, followed by a rehearsal dinner at The Westmoor Club. For that event she wanted a tuscan feel so we had fun with organic greens and lots of lemons. The ceremony and reception were held at the Great Harbor Yacht Club on a spectacular June day. Denise and I worked on all the tabletop details and wanted to create more of a dinner party atmosphere than a wedding reception. They had a big band there to keep everyone on the dance floor and Michael surprised Denise by singing to her. Not to be outdone, Denise had a few of her own tricks up her sleeve. She rented an antique car to take them around and have photos, and she had a groom’s cake made to look like his plane! Jodi from Jodi’s Cakes did an amazing job making it look like it was ‘flying’. So much fun! As you can see from the photos these two are absolutely smitten with each other. May you have years of happiness and wedded bliss you two!
What a beautiful family!
