Throw Back Thursday – A Nantucket Wedding at the Whaling Museum with Zofia & Co. Photography
People love Nantucket for so many reasons: the beaches, the food, the history, the sense of a small-town community, but mostly, I think what draws people here is a sense of peace and calm.
This week we’re taking a look back at Hal and Dal from New Orleans, who sought refuge in the peace and quiet of Nantucket after Hurricane Katrina devastated much of the Gulf Coast. Falling in love with Nantucket is oh-so-easy, so of course Hal and Dale thought of Nantucket for their wedding!
Zofia & Co. captured their joy so wonderfully, it brings back so many memories of their four-day wedding adventure that included some of Nantucket’s finest places: The White Elephant, The Wauwinet and of course, the Whaling Museum.
With a lush color palette of blue, white and green (with a pop of peach at the reception) we infused a bit of the South with some Nantucket charm, and we definitely had some fun with their designs. Wreaths welcomed guests at the church ceremony and the railings were covered in greenery. The reception at the Whaling Museum was an over-the-top black tie affair, as Hal once said to me; “People from New Orleans are most comfortable in black tie attire.” We used gorgeous silks, beaded overlays, crystal glassware and silver chargers – with no detail left behind! Wait until you see their cake!
