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

On June 12, 175 guests saw that creative crusade come together in a spectacular seaside affair at the Sankaty Head Golf Club, where they feasted on sea scallops and halibut and danced to an electrifying rock band. Break-dancers, fist-pumpers, and lip-synchers blew the lid off the clubhouse, then continued the late-night party at a nearby bar. "Its porch has a cool beach-shack vibe," says Maggie, "and it felt like we were just hanging with friends at one of our clambakes." A fitting end to a New England fête.

A cherished Nantucket icon, the Sankaty Head Lighthouse made several appearances in the wedding photos.
