Tara and Jason's paths first crossed in April 2014 when they were both living in Boston. A few months after moving across the country from Portland, Oregon, Tara met Jason, who had been living in the city for almost ten years. Being a New England native, Jason introduced her to life beyond the city. They spent winter weekends skiing in New Hampshire and summer weeks enjoying the beach and bike trails on Nantucket.
Jason grew up going to Nantucket every August, and he instantly knew Tara would love everything it has to offer. Over the last few years, they have vacationed on Nantucket with friends and family alike, and after getting engaged, there was no doubt it was where they wanted to have their wedding.
As a kid, Jason spent rainy summer afternoons seeing movies at the Dreamland, so the couple were excited to start their own "forever" story there. The Ochsner Family have also been eating at The Brotherhood of Thieves for dozens of years, so it seemed fitting to hold the rehearsal dinner there and add to the memories already held inside those walls.
Guests traveled great lengths to experience the island that Tara and Jason love so much and watch them say "I do". Most friends and family came from Oregon and Arizona, and Jason had family travel from Europe. For many people it was a once in a life time trip, but everyone seems to agree it was well worth the journey.
The wedding ceremony and reception were both held at the Dreamland and were catered by Simply with Style. Flowers were care of Betsey Brooks and Tara's dress was designed by BHLDN. Great tunes and the very popular photo booth were provided by Cape Tunes (Jason & Monica Houle).
