Lizzie has been a summer resident of Nantucket all her life. Burley fell in love with the island during his trips here with Lizzie, and proposed on September 12, 2012 in the middle of Nantucket harbor on the family’s boat when Lizzie and Burl were on their way back to town after a lunch at Topper’s where they celebrated her completion of law school and the Delaware Bar exam. They first met at the Willowdale Steeplechase ball in 2005 during a fundraiser that accompanies the horse race there. Lizzie is a self proclaimed horse person and her love of horses was reflected in the table numbers made from horse racing ribbons.
After getting ready at the family home and ceremony at St. Paul’s Church, attention turned to the reception at the Nantucket Yacht Club where florist Mary Beth Ferro crafted stunning centerpieces with roses, peaches, dahlias and figs! Lawn games of croquet and bocce awaited the guests, then after dinner Beantown band rocked the party until the witching hour. The highlight of the evening however, was the last song, as Lizzie changed into a sparkly silver cocktail dress and sang Adelle’s James Bond theme song, Skyfall, as a surprise for Burley….and everyone else! And boy can she sing!
A sparkler send off completed what will be a memorable night for Lizzie and Burley. We had such a fun time shooting their big day, enjoy the images!
