Jessica & Harrison


June 15, 2024

We are so excited to welcome you to our wedding weekend. Nantucket has held such a special place in both of our hearts and sharing the love of the island together these past few years has been unforgettable. So it only felt right to continue our story here, with all of you!

We hope you enjoy all the magic Nantucket has to offer in joining us for our first memories here as husband and wife.

We will continue to update this site with additional information, so please be sure to check back periodically.

With love, Jessica & Harrison


It's a LOVE Story

Jessica & Harrison


Our love story from Harrison’s POV

I had recently left FOX to head over to the mouse house during the 21st Century FOX acquisition. I walked into the magical company on 66th Street wide-eyed and bushy-tailed. My first meeting was in Doug’s (my new manager’s) office at 10:00 AM. The meeting was a classic media meeting, a small room with way too many employees stuffed into it. The meeting started promptly. I introduced myself to my new group of coworkers. Doug then proceeded to explain our Q3 goals when the door slammed open! This beautiful brunette walked in wearing a cute little plaid pencil skirt…. she was profusely apologizing! The rest of the meeting was a wash for me. I couldn’t pay attention. I was locked in on this girl, who I would later learn, was named Jessica. The meeting concluded at 11, and I asked Doug if he had a few moments. I imagine he expected me to properly introduce myself; instead, I asked, “Who the heck was that girl?!?” Taken aback, he told me I had no chance and that she was the most loved in the office …OUCH! Jessica and I had a few more meetings together over the next month or so, and I found myself unable to retain any information in any of those meetings. She had cast a spell on me, and we hadn’t exchanged words.

One day after a night out, I decided to make a grand gesture: sour s’ghetti! I left two bags on her desk and waited. She didn’t approach me that day, but she came over the next day and asked if this was an accident. I explained to her I had a couple of extra bags in my desk and heard she loved sour candy… a blatant lie, BUT it fooled her. We continued to talk for the next 15-20 minutes, and I swear she was smiling ear to ear the entire time. She returned to her desk, and all I could think was, I was in!

Over the next few weeks, I would walk past her desk and always make a point to talk to her. I would bring up anything from the weather to her weekend plans. Eventually, I would run out of things to awkwardly say, so I started to create reasons why I would need her help. “Jessica, can you help me book my flight?” or “Jessica, how do I submit expenses?” When I got her to my desk, I would make her life as hard as possible. Pretending I didn’t know bits of information only to keep her at my desk for a few moments longer.

Our relationship began to evolve, and I finally asked if she wanted to get lunch, and she said yes. We went to Sweetgreen a few times, and I would always pay. I explained to her that meant we went on a date. She adamantly disagreed with me and continued to explain that we were just friends, but I had felt our relationship growing stronger and stronger.

Then the unthinkable happened, Jessica received a promotion and they transferred her to another building. I was DEVASTATED. I didn’t know what to do but awkwardly IM’d her on our internal channel. I feared this was creepy, so the IMs stopped, and I started to miss her. I didn’t know what to do, then one day, it dawned on me. I found myself next to her new desk, and Jessica said, “What are you doing over here??” I explained there was a certain tea bag that only existed in the pantry next to her desk. The kitchen near her office was bigger than most, so she believed me! I had my in! I quickly developed a tea addiction. Every week I would parlay my tea visit with an invite to Sweetgreen. Again, I felt myself getting closer and closer to her.

The unimaginable happened…the country went into lockdown, and she would retreat to Freehold, NJ, and me to Scarsdale, NY. At this point, we were on texting terms, and found ourselves texting all day every day. We then started having movie dates where we would start a movie at the same time and text throughout the film. This quickly turned into long FaceTimes, where my family was catching wind of this girl named Jessica. Eventually, we went on a hike in Princeton, NJ, and then a date in Greenwich, CT, where she told me she had real feelings for me. This is where Nantucket comes into play. I told Jessica I was moving to Nantucket for the summer, and she started to cry. Quick side note: if you have ever seen Jessica cry, she is not a pretty crier. Anyway, I digress. I moved to Nantucket, and she came to visit, and the rest is history. We had the most magical ten days. She returned a week later, and I felt like she had never left. The island brought us together, and we fell in love with each other, and the small little Massachusetts town. Nantucket is such a special place to us, and I can’t wait to share our place with the people closest to us!

That is the story. If you have any questions or need additional details, feel free to come and ask me on June 15th. Please try and ask before 8:30 PM for obvious reasons!


Escape to Nantucket

Fly

Flying into Nantucket Memorial Airport (ACK) is quick and easy from the tri-state area. There are multiple direct flights a day from NYC (LGA/JFK), Newark (EWR), and Westchester (HPN). For those coming from a bit further, connecting through the New York or Boston airports is likely your best option. Jet Blue, Delta and United Airlines operate seasonally and are now available for booking.
Please note flight information is subject to change when booking far in advance.

Once you arrive at ACK head on over to the taxi stand or call a Uber/Lyft! Hotels do not offer a complimentary shuttle from the airport.

Find Flights

Ferry

There are three main ferry operators providing transport to Nantucket, Hy-Line Cruises (leaving from Hyannis, MA), Seastreak (leaving from New Bedford, MA) and Steamship Authority (leaving from Hyannis, MA). Each company offers either a high speed boat that reaches the island in one hour; or a slow boat that reaches the island in two and a half hours. Ferry schedules can be found on each company’s website, note that they change seasonally so ensure you are reviewing the correct range of dates when planning your travel.
** The ferry from New Jersey to Nantucket has been discontinued.

Don’t forget to bring a penny! While rounding the Brant Point Lighthouse it is customary for visitors to toss a penny off the back of the ferry and make a wish, some even believe it will ensure a trip back to Nantucket.

Both ferries drop off in Nantucket harbor, right in the heart of downtown. Ubers and cabs are plentiful from here to reach your on-island destination. Some hotels offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the ferry, please inquire through your hotels concierge.

Reservations are required for all ferry services, and can now be reserved on the Ferry’s website.

Other Info

We’re so excited that we’ll get to spend a beautiful weekend on Nantucket with you! We realize all of our guests will have to travel for the wedding. If you have any questions please reach out to us at contact@jessicaandharrison.com

To help with coordination, once you have confirmed your flight/hotel, please Complete This Travel Survey

If you are looking to rent a car, we recommend using Turo! This is an app that you can download on your phone and is similar to AirBnB/VRBO only for automobiles!
** For those of you looking to drive on the beach, make sure the car you select has the proper beach permits!

Accommodations

To help with coordination, once you have confirmed your flight/hotel, please Complete This Travel Survey

For where to stay on the island, we recommend renting a house or staying in one of the many boutique hotels or B&Bs.

Nantucket is a popular travel destination, especially in June for wedding season. Hotel rooms and home rentals tend to book about a year in advance. We recommend that all guests renting a stay for the weekend do so as early as they can since there is limited availability and rentals can become very expensive. Also, please be mindful that many places on island require a two-night minimum stay.

Please note: it is common for some of the hotel sites to say they are fully booked or “sold out” on their reservations page when booking in advance for the 2024 Spring/Summer season. Sometimes this just means the hotels aren’t available to book as of yet, and recommend calling the hotel directly to confirm. We will note under each hotel when they typically start booking for Spring/Summer 2024.

We have very limited rooms available within our room block. We are working with other hotels/B&Bs on additional blocks and will continue to update the below frequently.

For house rentals, please contact Cheryl Deschenes at Raveis Real Estate on Nantucket via phone: 774-254-1464 or email: Cheryl.deschenes@raveis.com. House rentals usually have a minimum of 3-4 nights. Also, feel free to checkout AirBnB, VRBO or any other local agent for additional rentals!

    Casual

Nantucket, MA


Nantucket, otherwise known as the Grey Lady, is a small island just 30 miles out to sea off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

This quaint, charming, and magical town is filled with boutique shopping stores. The island does not allow chain retailers (except for RL, Hill House Home, Lilly Pulitzer, Veronica Beard and Vineyard Vines), so each store has a unique offering for you to explore. From the classic “Nantucket Red” shorts, to the cherished Nantucket Basket, there are plenty of options that will keep your eyes browsing throughout the weekend.

We hope you find time to explore everything the island has to offer. Please find our little version of a travel guide. We have so many favorites and below is just to name a few.
(Drag your cursor and click, over the EAT, DRINK, DO and SHOP tabs to explore our recommendations)

EAT / DRINK / DO / SHOP

EAT

Something Natural

50 Cliff Road
Nantucket, MA

Grab your bike and prepare for a scenic route up Cliff Road, to this charming must-visit causal lunch spot. Perfect for grab-and-go beach food or an impromptu outdoor picnic on their tables. Don’t forget a cookie, they are delicious!!

Pro Tip: Ordering ahead of time is recommended, the wait times can be out of control. Also, go for the half size sandy (unless you have an appetite like Harrison) the whole size is as big as a laptop!

EAT

Lola 41

15 S Beach St
Nantucket, MA

Our favorite dinner spot and one of the harder ones to get into is Lola 41! This buzzy sushi restaurant only takes same-day reservations, so call right at 4 p.m. or pay them a visit in person to secure a table or a spot at the sushi bar. This chic hot spot is know for its out of the world sushi but don’s pass up the poke nachos and lobster fried rice!

EAT

Millies

326 Madaket Rd
Nantucket, MA

If you’re looking for casual Baja-style food like fish tacos, lobster quesadillas and excellent margaritas, Millie’s is the place. It’s the perfect spot when you’re ready for a break from fancier dining options in town and the upper floor offers panoramic views overlooking the Madaket Beach sunset!
If a sit-down dinner isn’t for you, stop by the takeout window and head over to Madaket Beach for the show-stopping sunsets.

FYI: They also have a food truck parked at Cisco Brewers!

EAT

Ventuno

21 Federal St
Nantucket, MA

We know you didn’t travel all the way to Nantucket just for Italian cuisine, but Ventuno is hands down the best Italian restaurant on the island. They are known for their handful of delicious pastas, so we highly recommend trying any of them … you will not be disappointed!

If your thirsty before or after dinner, then enjoy a cocktail in the “back bar” (outdoor patio) or the wine bar upstairs.

EAT

The Nautilus

12 Cambridge St
Nantucket, MA

Right in the heart of town is a delicious dinner-only tapas spot! We know it might not seem possible but if you ever need a break from oysters and lobster rolls, then beeline to The Nautilus. There Asian fusion inspired menu is perfect for sharing and you won’t want to pass up their famous crab fried rice.

The Nautilus books reservations 7 days in advance, so if this buzzy restaurant is on your list of places to eat, I suggest setting a reminder.

EAT

Cru

1 Straight Wharf
Nantucket, MA

If you’re looking for the BEST lobster roll on the island you have to pay a visit to this exquisitely decorated oyster bar on Straight Wharf. Make reservations well in advance or be prepared to wait with a glass (or two) of rosé on their outdoor patio or at the bar in the front room. It’s definitely a splurge for lunch or dinner, but the chic nautical interior and waterfront views are worth every penny.

** Reservations for June open May 1st @ 10am EST. and go within minutes. So set a reminder and log onto your Resy app at 10AM sharp!!


Getting Around The Island

Ubers/Lyfts/Taxis


Uber and Lyft are available on the island! We suggest calling in advance, or (if in Town) walking to one of the taxi stands.

Taxi Stands in Town:

- Main Street Taxi Stand, Main St /South Water St & Washington St
