“Back in the summer 2009, a newly-introduced Kristen and Jonny spent time getting to know each other on the island of Nantucket. They had first met in July in Boston, before she departed for a trip. The relationship developed, and come early fall, the pair was dating long-distance, with Kristen living in Connecticut and Jonny still in Massachusetts. Less than half a year later, Kristen relocated and the two were finally in the same city at the same time.

Six years from that move, and not too far away from the spot where it all started, on September 6, 2014, the couple became husband and wife. It was a natural choice; the spot has felt like a sanctuary for the couple over the years, and it was made even more special because the bride’s family lives there. Barbeques, yard games, the beach, and the brews all symbolize their ideal retreat, and the pair wanted to show all of their loved ones the things that make the island so special to them when they tied the knot during a destination wedding weekend in early fall. A welcome party at a brewery, rehearsal dinner on the beach, and tournament of champions all led up to a ceremony in a quaint chapel on the island followed by a reception at a private home that lasted until the wee hours.”
