Nantucket, the picturesque island off the coast of Massachusetts, is a popular destination for summer weddings. With its stunning beaches, quaint streets, and historic landmarks, it’s no wonder that couples from all over the world choose this place to tie the knot. And when it comes to a summer wedding on Nantucket, nothing beats a backyard celebration at a summer holiday home, surrounded by friends and family. Such was the case for the wedding of Sara & Nico, a young American/German couple from Europe who had met while traveling and fell in love. They decided to get married on Nantucket, where Sara and her family had spent many summers together and since her father just died a few months before the wedding it meant even more to Sara to get married in her childhood holiday home.
The couple had invited friends from all over the world, and had organised events on the beach dinners and activities the days before the wedding day. You could feel that everyone was excited to be reunited and meet new people. A highlight of the wedding day was definitely the reception held in the backyard of the summer home with delicious food, featuring fresh seafood and local specialties. The live band played a mix of international hits and local favourites, and the dance floor was packed all night long. Especially when their friend, a DJ from Berlin, did the overtake and made the party continue in the garage room. It all ended with everybody going skinny dipping in the sea.
