Ashley and Bret’s wedding day was a family affair that took place at her family’s private beach cottage in Misquamicut Beach, RI that her Great Grandfather bought back in 1930, and which is now shared by her aunts, uncles and cousins.
“It has always been my favorite place, so it has always been my dream to get married there… it is filled with all the best family memories.”
The weather was great for early September, the couple had a back-up plan, but definitely wanted to get married right at the beach in front of the family’s house. It was a warm and sunny, picture perfect day at the beach!
After the ceremony, the entire wedding party walked down the beach to the Windjammer Mariner Room for the reception festivities.
Besides the beautiful weather, another highlight for the couple was their wedding band. The bride stated, “you don’t see live bands at weddings as much anymore, but we wanted something different, and it was worth it! It was such a fun night!”
Many guests said they never saw a bride dance so much, while others said that the band totally changed their minds about wedding bands, in a good way!
We asked the bride why she chose Westerly for her wedding and she replied: “Westerly has such a special place in my heart, so it was important for me to get married here for many reasons. However, it also has the advantage of being so beautiful and just a great place for a wedding! It’s not as commercialized as other areas of RI, so I think it’s a great value for your money as well. I also highly recommend any of the vendors we used, as everything was great!”
