Cape Cod and the Islands

Surrounded by water, Cape Cod and the Islands provide the perfect spot for a memorable wedding ceremony. Ideal for a destination wedding, a quiet elopement or something in between. The bayside has calm waters that contrast with the lively ocean marinas and resorts. Leave the mainland, and ferry across to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. Prestigious locales abound. Jack Kerouac was married by a JP in his Hyannis home. Of course, numerous Kennedy weddings happen here, too. The area boasts many high end, luxurious venues. There are lovely and affordable spots, as well.

Unsure what is the right place for you? Let your JP know what you are looking for, and he or she will likely have suggestions.
