Sarah & Justin were married at the ‘Sconset Chapel with a reception following next door at the ‘Sconset Casino. The forecast threatened rain all week, but our good luck streak continued, and it was a perfect day on Nantucket.
The couple’s wedding was a fun one for Mark and I since we had lots of familiar faces to celebrate amongst. Sarah and Justin are laid back, fun, and really nice people. We’ve gotten to know them through our neighbors Sarah Felch and Carl Lindvall – whose wedding we will also be photographing this winter in the Bahamas. Both Sarahs also grew up summering in Sconset with Robin, whose wedding to Chris we photographed last year, and with Jorie, whose wedding we are looking forward to documenting next year! Lots of brides and grooms of ours, all together.
Last August, the Boston Pops was scheduled to play at Jetties Beach, which is one of the highlights of our island summer. My sister was visiting with her boyfriend, who was planning on proposing during the fireworks. Thunderstorms were on the radar, so the Pops got canceled, and he proposed in our backyard. Well, Justin picked the same day and event to propose to Sarah, but ended up popping the question on her family’s deck. She came over, next door, all excited that she was FINALLY engaged, just as my sister had just done! Not only that, but they also picked the same day to get married, though I convinced my sister to wait out our busy season and get married in October. We’ll be in CT celebrating with her in just a week!
Sarah and Justin’s wedding was one big, fun party, highlighted by an epic roast, errrrm, toast by her brother David, who had everyone covering their faces in shock and laughter. The Casino was beautifully decorated by Soiree Floral in shades of coral and pink, matching the bridemaids’ dresses. The night was topped off by a glow stick send off, which while fun, Sarah says could definitely leave wack marks. Buyers beware. ;)
Sarah and Justin, thanks for having us along to celebrate with you!
~ Enjoy, Z & Mark
