Wowowow this Nantucket Compound perfect place for a laid-back, small wedding on the island. Host your ceremony on the back lawn/patio, or even go to a local beach! My favorite part about this house is the cute cottage – which is the best spot for the newlyweds to stay together.
This house has a sonos sound system so you can play your awesome Spotify hits throughout the house and outside for everyone – bonus tip, get Spotify premium for no ads and fade between songs for a more natural sound!
