Nantucket is a special place for Caroline and Win and the Whaling Museum held extra importance as they had explored it during their first trip together to the island. The couple decided to have a church ceremony on the island followed by a rooftop cocktail hour at the Whaling Museum and a traditional clambake reception. Navy and white with punches of red made up the classic nautical color palette and their cake featured the iconic Nantucket basket weave motif. / Images by Rebecca Love Photography.
Says Caroline, “We adore the Whaling Museum and were so thrilled to celebrate our marriage there. It holds a special place in our hearts because we spent a day wandering the exhibits on our first trip to Nantucket together. Surrounded by the magnificent island history, our guests gazed on the harbor during our rooftop cocktail hour, strolled amidst the pictures and artifacts of times past, and then dined on a traditional clambake under the impressive whale skeleton before dancing to the phenomenal music of The Atlantics. It was simply magical!”Favorite Moment(s)? I have two! I never thought I would be the emotional bride but the second I turned the corner in St. Mary’s with my hand on my father’s arm and saw Win at the end of the aisle, I burst with excitement, happiness, ebullience, and welled up a bit! I could not wait to get down that aisle to him!
