Glamorous Glen Manor House Wedding
Planning your Engagement Session
Get to know me more
I'm a Florida girl at heart, but fell in love here on Cape Cod and have been embracing New England life ever since. It's been such a blessing building a life and chasing my dreams with my husband, our two little girls, and our pups.
Somebody pinch me. Did I actually just get back from photographing a Nantucket wedding?! I’m still kind of dreaming, I think. I’m also still kind of sore and exhausted and a little bit jumpy from the high-speed pace of the day. Worth it, don’t get me wrong. But maybe thirty-three isn’t all that young, after all. LOL! None of that stopped me from racing to my computer to upload, edit, and blog these images, though. And my eyes are just about ready to pop out. Keep reading to hear more about Moira and George’s September wedding on the beautiful island of Nantucket.
Summer is where Moira and Nantucket both shine, so it’s no wonder she and George decided to marry on this jewel of an island. It’s bright pop of blue sky and sea is the essence of their wedding day. Moira may be a diamond kind of gal, but she’s sapphire in her soul. Just like her beloved home away from home.
I started the day at Moira’s grandmother’s home. It’s where she’s summered all of her life, and it’s where her parents married. How special to be carrying on a legacy, in a way? As Moira steps into her dress inside the house, she looks through the window at the spot where her mother said “I do”. George is in the little guest house out back, no doubt sharing memories from before and hopes for tomorrow. Hard not to fall in love with a sweet little setting such as this.
After the first look, we made our way over to Brant Point Light for portraits. The ceremony also took place here. A very windy day for the beach, but the views were breathtaking. The stress of the day usually hits about this point in the schedule, so the entire bridal party headed for the cobblestone streets in town to have a little fun. And by fun, I mean mudslides! Highly recommend adding a stop at the bar into your wedding day itinerary. Hint, hint!
Moira and George shared the sweetest “I do’s”, then drove away in the cutest little getaway car toward The Nantucket Hotel. Guys, I’ve been dreaming of this moment since I read the book by Elin Hildebrand. The moment did not disappoint. The hotel is stunning, the staff is amazing and friendly, and it’s a venue fit for a Nantucket bride. But outside of all of the frill of the space itself, I think what I really loved about being there was seeing my couple truly come alive. I saw Moira melt into being George’s husband, and I saw George light up the room with how much he adores his bride. I’ll never tire of being part of the magic of wedding days.
