New Orleans Charm on Nantucket

We had an AMAZING weekend last weekend. The weather cooperated, and we had the pleasure of working with some very special guests to the island. Hal and Dale had their nuptials here on Nantucket and we infused their New Orleans roots in every little detail. From the moment I spoke to Hal for the first time on the phone, I knew we were in for some fun. They had four days of treating their guests to the best the island had to offer. A clambake at The White Elephant, dinner at the Wauwinet, and an over-the-top black tie reception at the Whaling Museum.

The ceremony was very important to these two, and to celebrate their special day, we covered the church in green, white and blue blooms. A lovely scented garland greeted guests as they entered the church. Hal really wanted the day to capture the essence of Nantucket, with a little bit of their Southern charm. One of my favorite parts of the day is handing over the personal flowers to the couple. In this case, when I saw Hal and Dale, Hal pointed out he noticed the shells we put on the wreaths out front and he was beyond delighted (it's the little things that make for special moments).

Simply with Style Catering
kept the guests well fed at the musuem, and even concocted specialty drinks from New Orleans. The gardenia is oh-so-southern so we decked out the railings as you enter the museum with the coveted bloom to greet guests as they made their way in for cocktail hour.

We designed an 'over the top' formal affair fit for a New Orleans crew (after all, Hal told me that people from New Orleans are most comfortable in black tie attire). Beaded overlays, silk linens, silver chargers, crystal glassware, and lush, garden style arrangements completed the tabletops (rentals by Placesetters)I'm told 'When the Saint Go Marching In' was played and every guest (and server) had white napkins twirling in the air! I can't wait to see the photos from Zofia Photography.

The one thing I can definitley say is that every single vendor involved in this wedding was over the moon and LOVED being involved in their big day. Congratulations again Hal & Dale!
