Vintage Getaway Car

Highland Drivers drove Bess and Ben to the wedding reception in a dark blue 1930 Chrysler. Complete with a wreath in the spare tire. It really did give their wedding that extra special touch, and made for many memorable photos.

Nantucket Wedding Venue

In 1899, if the Siasconset summer crowd wanted to hold a dance or stage a musical they had to use the railroad station just over the bluff on Low Beach. Organizers decorated the station with Japanese lanterns. Tired of squeezing into the small railroad station, a group of ‘Sconseters formed the Siasconset Casino Association that year and raised $3,000 to build a “Hall of Amusement” on New Street.

Despite its grand name, the building which was designed by architect John Coffins, was to be of a simple design that provided a large main room with a stage and several small antechambers for set-building, dressing rooms, and smoking. Two clay tennis courts were planned for the backyard. Now a historical landmark and the ideal place for your Nantucket wedding – The Sconset Casino.

Feast Calligraphy  not only did the invites, but she also hand-painted mosaic tiles that served as escort cards for each guest. What a unique touch, and such a memorable takeaway.

Words from The Vendors

Toby and Sarah got married at The Winfield Inn this past April and every detail is personal in some way. Sarah wore Jimmy Choos down the aisle and gave all of her bridesmaids Kendra Scott earrings that were hand selected for each girl based on her own, unique style.

Sarah and Toby have a great story behind how they met and began dating. After being sat next to each, and introduced, at a mutual friend’s wedding, Toby says he knew instantly that he would one day marry Sarah. With such a sweet and romantic start to their relationship, it was only fitting that the style of the wedding would also reflect that same sweet and romantic nature. There were touches of fun to reflect Toby’s always fun and kidding side, and a key design style to reflect Sarah’s love for interior design and aesthetics.

With the help of Sarah’s long-time professional mentor and a keen eye, it didn’t take long for the overall vision and color scheme for the wedding to take hold. Silver pintuck linens help to create the formal evening that they were hoping for, with a multiple course meal served table-side to all of the guests. Touches of burlap and lace rounded out the design, helping to welcome the guests to the natural indoor/outdoor feel of the venue and provide the masculine touch to reflect Toby. And touches of crystals and satin gave just the right hint of girly that can only begin to reflect Sarah’s style.

Small touches throughout the day helped to make sure the couple’s own personal style was reflected. Toby had an Aston Martin drove in especially for the weekend, and Sarah had custom made chalkboard signs and a vintage vignette to help welcome guests as they walked up the front pathway of the large plantation style house of Winfield Inn.

Both Sarah and Toby’s main concern was that their guests had fun and were catered to throughout the entire evening. Guests were greeted before the ceremony with pink lemonade and cucumber water, as well as cocktails passed by the staff. A live, three-piece band serenaded everyone as they mingled on the lawn in front of the intricately decorated ceremony gazebo. And, while guests were being treated table-side to a custom designed menu by the couple, the DJ kept them entertained with his well created playlists. Additional touches included a pearl and crystal, 5-tiered cake designed by Sarah and a poker table groom’s cake with bacon (yes, bacon) designed by Toby and amazing personal flowers held and worn by all members of the wedding party and families perfectly created with Sarah and Toby’s design in mind.

Quirky, Cute Southern Wedding

Liz and Jamie had a rustic, summer farm wedding in Asheville, North Carolina with a mix of Jewish and Christian traditions. Their wedding was about family, fun music, delicious food, and dancing, and overall making sure everyone had a good time.

The florals were playful and colorful and matched the laid back setting. They infused this wedding with their personalities and made it fun for everyone. See more of the quirky cute southern wedding details, including an R2-D2 grooms cake, in the full gallery here.

Words from The Vendors

There was a Rabbi and a Priest for the service and prior to the ceremony the bride and groom signed the Ketubah (a Jewish marriage certificate) with their family. Liz and Jamie also got married under a Chuppah held by 4 family members.

Guests enjoyed dinner on an assortment of vintage plates and could also visit the candy bar or lemonade stand. The groom is a huge Star Wars fan and there was an R2-D2 grooms cake. The bride obliged and even had a lightsaber battle with him (it was only 10 seconds long). Moments like Jamie singing a song to Liz and both of them wearing checkered aprons for the cake cutting made this wedding adorable and sweet.
