Laura & David's Block Island Waterfront Wedding

The Sullivan House on Block Island, Rhode Island was built in 1903 and sits on a hilltop with views of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and New Harbor on the other side. The house itself is remarkable, with a wrap around porch and all wood interior, but it's the sprawling lawns and incredible views that make this the perfect spot for a wedding. Laura and David took full advantage of that and were married under blue sunny skies atop that very grassy hill. Surrounded by friends, family, and their very sweet pup Lily, the couple said their vows overlooking the harbor, then partied the night away under a tent filled with twinkly lights and a variety of musical acts that had everyone on their feet. Laura's brother's a capella group entertained the crowd, as well as her childhood friend who dedicated a few special songs to the couple, and they even had one of their friends perform an unforgettable rap celebrating the day. The Two Man Gentlemen Band ended the night with their jazzy swing numbers and had everybody begging for the night to go on and on! Fortunately, there was an after party that started with a crazy pinata and ended down at the beach complete with a bonfire, s'mores, and of course sparklers so the couple was able to extend the most wonderful night of their lives. There was such a lovely retro feel to the whole affair, from Laura's beautiful ensemble to the band to the location, it was so romantic and classic and we were so happy to be involved in this lovely day!
