A Historic Nantucket church

Summer Street Church is one of Nantucket’s premier wedding venues. Its classic white steeple design is reminiscent of early New England architecture. This historic church was established in 1840, when the famous Nantucket whaling industry was coming to a close. To be married in this timeless church is to take part in nearly two hundred years of Nantucket history. In 2015 the church embarked on an extremely ambitious renovation plan, seeking to both preserve and update this important structure. From the original hardwood floors to the stained glass windows, everything was preserved with the utmost care. While sitting in the original 19th century pews, your guests will gaze up at the stunning tin ceiling installed less than 75 years after the American revolution. Its simple, sophisticated interior ensures that all attention will be on the beautiful bride and her husband to be. Situated on Summer Street, only one block from Main Street means that travelling to and from your reception will take only a matter of minutes. For most locations, a simple walk will do. We are happy to accommodate weddings year round, so please feel free to contact us for more information. Your elegant wedding is only one email away.
