“The cake was simply amazing!”

-Galley Beach

Our clients plan their dream weddings by the shore, but weather often proves to be unpredictable. Handy & Dallaire planned a magnificent outdoor wedding for over 200 guests with a beautiful view of Galley Beach in Nantucket. A last minute tropical storm, Hurricane Dorian, shifted the tented wedding inside the smaller cocktail area with winds at 81 mph. All of the wedding professionals attending did their best work to make this beautiful wedding happen under these unforeseen circumstances. This tall and luxurious wedding cake was not planned for a small space, but we worked diligently to make this a special day for our adorable newlyweds.

The weather held up greatly as the couple had their beautiful wedding ceremony at The First Congregational Church in Nantucket. Afterwards, the newlyweds made their way to the renowned Galley Beach for their lovely reception by the water.

The eminent Galley Beach, located on the North West Shore of Nantucket, is a premier private event space is well known for adding an elegant beach ambiance to every celebration. This historically impeccable venue has served guests dating back to the 1920’s. A full renovation in 2008 has since gained international popularity for award winning service and marvelous cuisine accompanied by an outstanding view.

The space, ornate with floral masterpieces designed by Flowers on Chestnut, made it the perfect wedding reception for the couple and their loved ones.

The sketch for this 12-tier masterpiece wedding cake fit exceptionally well with the intricate flowers created by Flowers on Chestnut and magnificent wedding decor. The bride desired a beautiful centerpiece wedding cake adorned with elegant handcrafted sugar flowers reaching a height of 5 ft.

The finished wedding cake towered over guests during the cake cutting ceremony. The soft blush and white color palette of the wedding carried through in our abundance of white, cream, champagne, blush, and pale pink sugar flowers. Our staff created peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, sweet peas, freesia, and anemones.

Alexandra and Jamie ended the night with a romantic stroll by the water for an outstanding view of the famous Galley Beach sunset.

Everlasting love to Alexandra and Jamie!
