Last weekend was absolutely amazing! With Daffodils in bloom and beautiful spring weather I was beyond happy to bring Christine and Nils out to Sconset for their Nantucket Engagement Session. This sweet couple is getting married at the end of June here on the island. By now we have been in touch for well over a year leading up to their Wedding and it has been so nice getting to know them. I loved hearing more about how they met….
“Nils and I met at a bonfire on the beach in Bridgehampton towards the end of summer almost four years ago. We only spoke for a couple of minutes that night but we both asked our mutual friends about each other the next day! We had our first date a couple of weeks later when a large group, that included my sister and other mutual friends, went to the US Open. Shortly after we finally had our first one-on-one date in NYC and have been together ever since.”
It’s no secret that I love Nantucket and I’m always interested in what draws our couples to the island and why it is special to them…
“Nils and I started vacationing in Nantucket the first summer we were together and have returned every summer. It is a special place for us, most importantly because we have been able to share it with many of our friends and family over the years. We love being surrounded by water and were thrilled to have our engagement shoot on Nantucket, where we are getting married this June. It was a little bit chilly but we happily put our jackets on and took our shoes off to hit the beach for our pictures. The sunset ended up being really beautiful that evening by the Sconset lighthouse. Nils is an avid golfer so having the ocean on one side and a course on the other was the perfect setting for us!” Needless to say we are looking forward to their wedding in June! Their session was so much fun and as the sun sank below the horizon we were graced with beautiful evening skies. . . . furthering my theory that Nantucket never disappoints! Here’s to Springtime sunsets!
Enjoy! – Katie K.
