Wedding Wednesday

I am not quite sure how I stumbled upon this site, but boy am I glad I did. Moment Junkie posts pictures sent in from all over of the sweetest moments taken during weddings. And I just about died…and cried…looking at these. Basically, these moments are the reason why I am so obsessed with weddings and why one day I want to make a career out of trying to make the usually stressful process of planning a wedding feel seamless for the happy couple so that they can really enjoy their special day and share such special moments like these.

I almost can’t handle all the cuteness. Please tell me you are just loving this as much as I am.

The Situation is…

The situation is… I have a manic case of the daydreams.

I am sorry that sounds so inappropriate for some reason.

I have one week before I leave for Nantucket for the month of July.   I have so much I need to do AND my cousin, Shannon (who designed this blog), is coming for a visit…  BUT all I can think about is everything else but the matter at hand!

Day dream

Day Dreams have included…

Channing Tatum

I know.  Typical.  But I just saw White House Down last night, and my friend and I concluded that Channing Tatum can do no wrong.



Packed and Ready to Board


And Pizza…


What does that even say about me?

These were all separate day dreams.  Hmmm…

So pretty much, I want to be with Channing on the beach in Nantucket eating pizza.  Isn’t that every girls dream?


Martha’s Vineyard

Steve and I had the best time in Martha’s Vineyard this past weekend.  Now before you all get nervous, let me clear the air.  Nantucket is my favorite place in the world.  The love I have for my little island is everlasting – it is the one place where I feel happiest, inspired and comforted all at the same time.

I was excited and open minded about our adventure to Martha’s Vineyard but thought that there was no way I could be captivated by another island.  I was wrong.

The Vineyard had an effect on me and I quickly developed an affection for it.  I have long forgotten what Nantucket feels like as a vacation spot because I now call it my home.  Nantucket is comfortable to me.  Don’t get me wrong, the beauty of this island catches me by surprise everyday but I now know the ins and outs and secret spots.  Visiting Martha’s Vineyard reminded me of my early days on Nantucket and that wondrous feeling you would get as the ferry made that turn around Brant Point!

 So, I’ve concluded that Nantucket will always be called my home but the Vineyard will be my new vacation spot!!

First stop OTV (on the Vineyard):  The most delicious breakfast at Art Cliff Diner in Vineyard Haven.  It’s a totally cute retro inspired diner with great food and service.  Order the Lobster & Asparagus Eggs Benedict.

Next we headed southwest through West Tisbury; the middle of the island.  We were amazed by the beauty of the rolling hills and farmland – sometimes we felt like we were in Vermont.


After that we made our way to the the island’s most westerly point; Aquinnah.


Below is Gay Head Lighthouse a top of the colorful clay cliffs.  The view up here was spectacular – a must see!


We stumbled across Moshup Beach – it’s pretty cute!

We finished the day with a farm to table inspired dinner at State Road Restaurant.  It was recommended to us by a friend who also happens to be the most talented floral designer; Becca Olcott.  Do yourself a favor and order the house made ricotta!
