The first weekend in December is a magical one on Nantucket. Nantucket Stroll Weekend kickstarts the Christmas season. The restaurants are full again, the shops all have sales, and the revelers are on the streets in their finest tartan and pearls. Santa takes the Coast Guard boat into town, then parades down Main Street to the Jared Coffin house, where families line up to have their photos taken with him. It’s a weekend that looks and feels like a fairytale.
Caroline & Mark spent their first Stroll weekend on the island last week, though they’ve been visiting the island for years. Caroline grew up summering on the island, and the couple is getting married at the First Congregational Church next June. I’m looking forward to seeing many of our past wedding couples there as guests!
