Kendall and Kerry’s Wedding at The Nantucket Yacht Club
Kendall and Kerry were married on September 18th 2016 at The Nantucket Yacht Club. The couple was blessed with a beautiful day full of sunshine, blue skies and endless laughter. Kendall and Kerry have the type of energy you can’t get enough of and from the moment I met them I knew this was going to be nothing short of an epic wedding! My associate, Cary Tozer, and I have been talking about how much fun this wedding was ever since! Their wedding was a beautiful blend of unique moments, some heartfelt and emotional and some wildly funny. We are so happy that Kendall’s family has a home here as we know we’ll be seeing these ladies again soon on the island…..here’s more about their connection to Nantucket.
From Kendall….”My parents honeymooned on Nantucket in 1979 and have been back every year since. I’ve been every year since I was born and fell in love at an early age…my friends say it’s an obsession. My parents bought the place in 2003. They always had a plan to buy when we went to college. They gave us everything growing up and it was so nice to see their dream come true when they could finally buy. Kerry first met my family on Nantucket when I was running in the Hero Olympic Tri in July 2014. It is definitely my place, but holds a special place in her heart as well.”
The Nantucket Yacht Club was a great venue for Kendall and Kerry. They were married under blue skies and sunshine and surrounded by their amazing group of friends and family! We loved seeing the kids that were involved including the very adorable flower girl and the boys who carried the ‘Ferry Tale’ sign down the isle. I enjoyed hearing who the couple chose the NYC to be the backdrop for their beautiful festivities!
“We originally wanted to get married on the beach but quickly realized September can be a tricky month and we should probably use a venue. My parents suggested the Nantucket Yacht Club. I had never really heard of it but my parents had looked into joining a few times. After we saw the pics we knew it was the right place. Plus…Kerry is from New York City so we knew it was fate with the NYC letters.”
Kendall and Kerry’s Wedding Day was a celebration of their love for each other and we loved meeting all of the amazing people that they have in there life. Their wedding parties were too much fun. We loved the champagne toast at Brant Point to kick off the portraits right after the first look. It was no surprises that Kendall and Kerry mentioned the group camaraderie as one of her most memorable parts of the day….”Seeing each other on the beach was pretty epic. But overall one of the most memorable parts of the wedding was the camaraderie of the day. Everyone was just having such a great time, in a great place, on a great day. We had actually done personal vows the night before after the welcome party and that was pretty special. (I was too nervous to say them in front of people…I write very cheesy things). “
As the evening went on everyone hit the dance floor and never took a break. The band, McLean Avenue Band, was absolutely incredible. They were high energy and played many popular songs as well as originals and Irish songs. Everyone was twirling around, lifting each other up and having the time of their lives. We ended the evening by sneaking thee newlyweds outside for a few moments surrounded by sparklers. Kendall and Kerry are two of the most fun and genuinely nice ladies we’ve ever met and we can’t be happier for them as they embark on this new journey!!
Huge thanks to Cary Tozer for all the talent and hard work photographing this wedding with me!
