Sarah recently designed bespoke SZ Napkins for a Nantucket Wedding. We recently caught up with the happy couple to fund out more about their special day...
Tell us a little bit about your wedding - when, where, why?
We got married in Nantucket, Massachusetts on September 8th at the Nantucket Yacht Club. I've been going to Nantucket in the summer for my entire life and knew from a young age that I would one day get married there. I was lucky that my husband grew up going to Cape Cod, taking trips to Nantucket frequently, so the location was special to both of us. After dating for a little over 7 years, Ted proposed in Nantucket over Memorial Day weekend! A few weeks later, we were set on the Yacht Club in September, which is our favorite time of the year on the Island.
We love the bespoke SZ pieces you chose - Can you tell us about how the colour scheme/ motif tied into your wedding vibe?
The one color that I knew I wanted to incorporate from the beginning was hot pink. This may seem really off brand to anyone that knows me, but my mind was made up. From there, I decided I wanted the Bamboo Chairs and Ratan Chargers and really wanted napkins that tied the whole look together. I also knew that I wanted something different than other weddings, which is why I thought of SZ. The blue and white napkins in the patti leaf pattern were the perfect combination of traditional Nantucket blue and white and the more eclectic vibe I was going for.
Advice for anyone planning a wedding? Where did you get inspiration?
I spent a lot of time looking at wedding blogs and websites at first to get a sense of what other people had done, especially at the same venue. I couldn't really find exactly what I was looking for, so pulled inspiration from other blogs/designers/brands I like. I wanted the day to feel like me, (and Ted) and be different than all of the other weddings I had seen at the Yacht Club. From there I really just started to piece the day together and wasn't sure what it was going to look like until I got to the venue that day! Its really easy to get wrapped up in all of the little details, so my advice would be to just have fun with it!
