Whitney + Doug: A Wedding Film in Martha’s Vineyard, MA
We’ve been lucky enough to visit Martha’s Vineyard on a number of occasions over the last two years (see Jillian + Sebastian, Alyssa + Greg, Maria + Matthew) and this wedding was our last trip to this beautiful island in 2016. We’ve been able to explore different areas of the vineyard on each trip and, on this occasion, we made our way to Gay Head Cliffs in Aquinnah for some truly spectacular views. We also took a different route in coming to the island and flew directly (via Sessna!) into the Martha’s Vineyard airport.
Those are just logistics (though you will see some beautiful shots of Gay Head Cliffs in the film). The real reason this was such a special wedding was, undeniably, the two people getting married: Whitney and Doug. These two are a power couple! Whitney is a champion equestrian while Doug is one of the handsome faces that represents Ralph Lauren. Even with all of their success and accomplishments, you will never meet two more down-to-Earth and caring people.
There’s almost too much to say about this wedding and this couple, but here are a few of our favorite highlights from the day:
The best man’s speech may be the very best wedding speech we’ve ever heard. Literally. And we’ve heard some great speeches. It received a well-deserved standing ovation.
An ethereal fog rolled onto the island before the ceremony providing an almost dream-like atmosphere to the ceremony. It was like being married in a cloud! We’ve never seen anything quite like it!
The vendors that put this together were all of the very top caliber and made this event such a success. Planning a wedding like this from afar is never easy and so it takes a momentous team effort.
