A Summer Wedding in Nantucket
Graphic details, a nautical palette, and one rockin' party band punched up the New England preppiness at a couple's enchanting affair on Nantucket
For Maggie, 29, Nantucket evokes a slideshow of happy memories. "It's a magical place," she says of the Massachusetts island where she spent countless childhood summers and, more recently, long weekends with her boyfriend, Sean, 32. During their seven-year courtship, the Boston-based couple became known for their laidback gatherings and clambakes. So after Sean popped the question, Maggie says, she started planning a celebration in her "favorite spot on the planet." An interior designer (Sean works in banking), she approached the wedding as a decorating project, injecting texture and personal touches to achieve her "vintage nautical" vision. Whether she was searching for the perfect watery blue fabric for the tablecloths or making necklaces for her 14 bridesmaids, the avid crafter stitched together a wedding picture of a hundred details.
