Joanna came to me a few months ago with this brilliant idea, a surprise destination wedding! To say I was excited for her is an understatement. I'm so happy for her and Tim, that they were able to come to Nantucket and share this intimate day with their nearest and dearest. They did the nearly impossible, planned a Saturday wedding in August short term and got all the vendors and venues they wanted! Two of my friends were at Darya Salon when Joanna was getting dolled up and said she was positively glowing with excitement. Could you blame her?!
The couple stayed at the sweet Union Street Inn, were married at The Sconset Chapel and had dinner following at The Chanticleer. Joanna wore a custom gown by Joan Gilbert Bride in San Francisco, made to measure in France! Dawn Kelly at Soiree Floral did a beautiful job with the flowers. Pam Goddard (508-221-6184) made the cute cakes that "Silly Tim" dug into with the kids immediately ;). Joanna had a very special belt made for her groom, a personalized belt by Smathers and Branson. Another nice touch was the blueberry place settings since Joanna's family owns a farm in New Hampshire. I just adored this small wedding!
Since only 11 of their closest came to the Nantucket wedding, I may have gone a little nuts in this blog post, but I wanted to make sure all the other people in their lives really got to see what it was like. Brace yourself!
