Danielle and Tim's Harbor View Hotel Wedding

Updated: Jan 24

Danielle looked stunning in her Stella York dress, attended by her six bridesmaids (two of whom were sisters) in Azazie dresses, colored in varying hues of blue that not so vaguely resembled the color of summer hydrangeas. 


Will your wedding feature a first look? If so, it’s suggested that you do it in a way that matters most to you. For Tim and Danielle, they wanted it to take place in a private area with a great view of the Edgartown Lighthouse. Luckily, Tim had a connection with a property owner on N. Water street with views anyone could envy. Danielle had one of the most beautiful wedding bouquets, arranged with lisianthus, dahlia, freesia, spray rose, hydrangea, delphinium chocolate cosmo foliage and more. Simply stunning.



The groom, being from Edgartown, wanted to keep things local for the ceremony, and the decision was made to tie the knot next to the Edgartown Lighthouse. This is one of the most beautiful ceremony locations on Martha’s Vineyard and affords picturesque views of Edgartown’s classic captain homes, Edgartown Harbor and all its activity, as wells views of Chappaquiddick and the Vineyard Sound. It is one of those storybook Edgartown wedding locations and Danielle and Tim had perfectly warm sunny weather conditions with a cooling summer breeze. Pro tip: if you’re considering this location, it is recommended that the lighthouse be rented from the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. This way, you can use it not only as a background for your wedding ceremony but you can use it for bride and groom photos afterwards. It makes a great prop on which to snag a few drone photos, too.  



Morrice Florist worked their usual creative magic with their wedding flowers and wedding flower centerpieces, with beautiful arrangements and picture-perfect presentation. For Danielle, it was important to have various types of wedding flowers that connote a classic New England coastal town in summer, a desirable approach to flower décor for any Edgartown wedding.  As you can see from the photos, these tablescape photos are sure to inspire some wedding flowers ideas and were well suited for use under a Sperry Pole Tent installed on the Harbor View Hotel’s Great Lawn. Using the Massachusetts town sign table ids was a creative touch, too. 



Back inside the Harbor View (now completely redesigned as of May 2019) there was a lively party driven by Joanne Cassidy and the Vine Shakers.  In the lobby we setup a Photo booth that was a popular hit.  


Congratulations to Danielle and Tim. It was an honor being your wedding photographer :)
