I am seriously cherishing these slow winter months and am so grateful for the down time to be able to go back through my 2017 wedding galleries and process all the beautiful parts of each and every celebration!
Hayley and Pavel's Classic Nantucket Wedding was everything you'd imagine: hydrangeas, vintage cars, and Nantucket basket purses all on the pristine, chic island of Nantucket. Hayley's family has summered on Nantucket for years and so it was so special for Hayley to plan her wedding around all her fond memories on this island. Coincidentally, I met Hayley and her family while teaching sailing and working at Great Harbor Yacht Club 7 summers ago! So of course I was completely honored to be chosen to photograph Hayley and Pavel's beautiful wedding weekend!
We spent the morning at Hayley's family house "Sommarlov" - it was a cozy group of girlfriends and close family. It was so special to capture all the getting ready photos in this space with all their summer memories. I just love these sweet before moments!
It just so happened to be a very bright and sunny day on island, which is sometimes rare that time of year. We headed out to the Boat Basin to do their first look and family photos. It was a miracle that their wasn't much wind or many boats in the harbor to compete with. Lucky for sure!
The ceremony and reception were both held at the Nantucket Dreamland Theatre. Hayley + Pavel tied the knot on the balcony overlooking the harbor, surrounded by friends and family from all over the country, and the world! A cocktail hour with an oyster bar on the balcony followed as the sun slowly dipped down. We all headed into the ballroom for a night of toasts, cake cutting and lots of fun dancing!
Congratulations again to Hayley + Pavel!
