A sweet and small Martha’s Vineyard wedding for you all today. Jamie and Adam had a very intimate wedding of only 36 guests, which meant they had tons of time to toil over their DIY projects. Jamie designed their invites and paper goods, as well as their welcome bags and even their water bottle labels.
Because their wedding was so small, they asked everyone in attendance to be a part of the ceremony. They gave all 20 women a beaded necklace Jamie had made and all 16 men matching bow ties. And Jamie’s grandma made all 21 bouquets the day for the wedding.
They asked a family friend to marry them, (in Massachusettes, anyone can apply for a one day Marriage Designation to allow them to officiate a wedding), and because one of the Justices of the Peace on the island wears a top hat when he officiates weddings, Jamie thought it only right to find one for their officiant too.
Adam spent the months leading up to the wedding restoring his ’64 Thunderbird so they could bring it over on the ferry for the wedding. Each can tied on the back had a drawing and wish from a guest. Cute idea!
They had sweatshirts printed as guest favors… because aren’t they the quintessential summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard souvenir?
And their reception was a good old fashioned clam bake, with pies from the best baker on the island.
Beautiful wedding you two! With so many thoughtful details. Seriously, everything Jamie and Adam did for their wedding was a little mini labor of love.
And Whitney & Jesse, thanks so much for the amazing photographs!
