It could not have been a more gorgeous weekend for Sarah + Tyler’s Little Compton, RI wedding! The entire celebration took place at the bride’s family home, from the morning preparation to the tented wedding reception in the evening. Little Compton is a seaside town known for its sprawling acres of farmland beautiful stonewalls and sandy beaches. The wedding was located on Chace Point a private peninsula with its own private beach.The bride and groom chose to keep the bridal party very small, each of them had only their sister by their side throughout the day. The two beautiful bridesmaids wore lace dresses and all of the ladies carried classic white floral bouquets.
The late afternoon ceremony took place outside, and the weather could not have been better! An outdoor cocktail reception followed the I Do’s, before everyone moved inside the tent to kick off the party. The evening reception was held under a beautiful white sailcloth tent, overlooking the ocean and Rhode Island seaside. A mix of gray linen tables, wood, and mirror-tops made for a really unique and contemporary reception. Lots of candle light made the tent glow as the sun started to set, and kept this beautiful affair feeling really warm and intimate throughout the night. We asked the bride and groom to describe their vision and inspiration for their wedding day, and here’s what they had to say!
We have designed our wedding with the setting at the forefront of our mind. Little Compton, and particularly our wedding venue, is a unique and special place with the stonewall wooden fence, lush greenery, gray rock beach, and sprawling ocean. Our wedding colors fit that setting with neutral tones of gray, green, white, and brown. Our wedding style also fits the setting… and us! We would describe it as classic and elegant, with contemporary touches. We will have candles and reflective mirrors on tables, specially designed orbs hanging from the tent ceiling, lanterns and shepherd hooks throughout the property, and fire pits between the tent and the water.
We were so happy to have been able to share this wedding weekend with such a wonderful couple. Congratulations Sarah + Tyler and thank you for choosing us to document such an important event!!!
