I’ve heard people say that Mark and I are inspiration to those who think love is impossible to find on this little island, especially the second time around. Well, Beverly and David are Case #2. They met just last year at St. Paul’s Annual Meeting, when David wooed Beverly over a serving of his famous popovers. Nearly a year to the date, they were married during a Sunday morning service at St. Paul’s in front of friends and churchgoers. Beverly was walked down the aisle by her dear friend and fellow artist, Reggie Levine, who has been a well known fixture in the art world on island since the 1970s.
Beverly and David, who were engaged just before a trip to India this fall, seem made for each other. Their sense of humor, love for travel, animals, and the arts, and lovable eccentricity proves it. Beverly’s, and now David’s, Madaket home is adorned with the most amazing collections of art I have ever seen. It’s truly one of my favorite places to be. It has been host to the Shakespeare Festival for a few years, which is always a lot of fun.
Beverly Hall is a well known and respected member of the photography community on Nantucket. Her photos of Fred Rogers, Madaket Millie, and many other island notables, hang on walls everywhere you look. She has photographed the families of politicians, actors, and notable Nantucketers through a few generations, since 1964.
I’ve had the pleasure of calling Beverly my friend for many years now, and couldn’t be happier for her and David!
