Nantucket is where Nora and Chris have been coming to for years and holds a special place in both their hearts. Every year they grab a photo of themselves in front of Brant Point and during last year’s visit to the iconic lighthouse, Chris brought out a ring and asked Nora to be his wife! He had a romantic dinner planned for later but in Chris’s words, “Typical us, we ended up grabbing drinks and a burger. It was by far the most amazing night. Neither one of us could stop smiling!” Fast forward to September 2014 and they’re still smiling, and who could blame them?! Their daughter, Grace is a treat, we did a family portrait session just last week and I couldn’t stop smiling either.
With a late ceremony at St Mary’s we decided to do portraits and formals first, while we had light and before the rain came! We headed to Brant Point of course to keep the tradition going, and took a walk around town before heading to St. Mary’s for their ceremony. Nora looked stunning in her Oscar de la Renta dress and Chris, very dapper in his tux. Both of their fathers had recently passed, and in honor, Nora and her bridesmaids had bouquets with her dad’s neck ties wrapped around the stems, adding a personal and loving touch to the decor. White hydrangeas and roses adorned the tables at The Nantucket Hotel where The Sultans of Swing kept everyone on the dance floor right through the night. What a great party for a great family! Congratulations Nora, Chris and Grace!
