Eric and Paul’s Intimate Wedding in Madaket

BLogEric&Paul_028_KatieKaizerPhotographyEric and Paul had the most beautiful Intimate Wedding in Madaket surrounded by their families. They were married on June 29th and true to Nantucket form the day was blanketed in fog with occasional bursts of sunlight through the mist. They had a beautiful ceremony officiated by their good friend Garrett Hall and standing under a beautiful Chupah that Eric’s Father had made for them. As Eric and Paul read their vows to eachother everyone teared up, myself included. From behind the camera I too was shedding happy tears as you could feel the love these two had for each other. It was such a powerful ceremony and one we will surely never forget. Eric and Paul share a love for life, each other and Nantucket.

From Eric…..”My family has been summering in Madaket since 1987, so I really grew up there. When Massachusetts allowed same-sex marriage back in 2004 I secretly dreamed I would one day be able to get married at my family’s house and at the beach I grew up going to. Paul grew up on Long Island right near Jones beach, and worked there every summer, so an east coast beach wedding was particularly exciting for him too.”

We met with Eric and Paul at Eric’s beautiful family home in Madaket and after a few photos around the property we took them to the bridge in Madaket. There we had bursts of sunlight, heavy fog and even some friendly cheering kayakers who cruised by and gave a wave. It was all very surreal and beautiful…..and we hadn’t even gotten to the ceremony yet! From there we met their immediate family and a few friends for their wedding and after they enjoyed dinner on the beach catered by Susan Warner.

“The whole day was pretty amazing, but an extra memorable part was the surprise of seeing the chupah wedding canopy that my father built himself out of Saguaro cactus splines from my parents winter house in Scottsdale, AZ.”

I don’t know if I’ll ever find the words to describe this beautiful day, so instead we will show you the photos. From the bottom of our  hearts we congratulate Eric and Paul, you are an inspiration to everyone around you and the joy you share radiates when you are together.

Special thanks to Cary Tozer for all his amazing work photographing this wedding with me!
