We met… Through my brother Jeff. We had met years before we started dating and always shared a connection to the Boston Marathon. Before the 2012 Boston Marathon, I asked my brother for Will’s number to wish him luck and he told me that he had just given my number to Will who wanted to give me a call before. That was when the first light went off.
The proposal… He proposed the day before the 2014 Boston Marathon in the Boston Common. We were running together the next day and I had absolutely no idea it was coming. Earlier in the day I had apparently accidently sabotaged his proposal when I fixed the camera that he was using as a ploy to get me to walk across the park to the camera store. It worked out in the end, because instead we took a walk in the afternoon with our dogs, Grady and Riva. It was perfectly fitting that they were there to be a part of the proposal.
The wedding was… At St. Mary’s and the reception was at the Great Harbor Yacht Club on Nantucket. The GHYC has been our venue for many long and boisterous dinners with family and friends. The club has amazing views and the architecture and décor are beautiful. The staff there is always welcoming, fun and engaging, making for a very inviting location for our guests.
We incorporated VV into our special day by… The guy’s outfits started with the Fishbone Woven Tie. When we saw it, we knew we had to have it. From there we had help at the Nantucket vineyard vines store for the rest of the attire. We wanted a more casual look and went with the Blue Blazer, Club Pants, and the Fine Line Cooper Shirt. We also complemented the men’s ties with my father sporting a similar but unique Crossed Fishbone Woven Tie. VV also outfitted us for our welcome party the night before the wedding with my Sequin Skirt and Will’s Oxford Elbow Patch Sport Coat with yellow VV pants. It was an explosion of color but as Holly Wall of Nantucket’s vineyard vines says “anything goes with vineyard vines”.
