Real New England Weddings: Kirsten Scannell & Dennis Peek
Married on June 20, 2009 at Nauticus Marina, Osterville.
FOR A WORLDLY COUPLE, Kirsten and Dennis got married surprisingly close to home. They met during a trip to Newport and started dating in New York City just before Dennis relocated to Amsterdam for work; the relationship remained long distance until the pair moved to Spain. But when considering a location for their wedding, New England was a no-brainer.
Kirsten, a Connecticut native, grew up spending summers in Cotuit, and Dennis, who is Dutch, had grown fond of the seaside town. “The Cape will always be a part of our lives, no matter what country we live in,” says Kirsten. During a post-reception dance party at a family beach house, guests from Holland, Spain, Brazil, Australia, and other locations celebrated together until the wee hours — in spite of long flights and jet lag.
