A Weekapaug Inn Wedding

January 24, 2017

Rhode Island may be a small state, but it is loaded with secret spots for fabulous weddings. Exhibit A, Christie and Dave’s Weekapaug Inn wedding.

I’ve been photographing weddings for twenty years in Rhode Island, and I had never been to the Weekapaug Inn. I just asked Trish if she had been before and she said, “Yes, once a long time ago but they ripped it down and put up a new one.”

So basically, that means two Rhode Island wedding photographers with a total of 40+ years experience have been to the Weekapaug Inn a total of once. I’d call that a secret spot, though I don’t imagine it will remain a secret for long considering how perfectly gorgeous it is now.

Wedding Rings and Wedding Invitation

Christie gets ready at her parents home while Dave gets his bow tie perfect at the Inn.

Christie’s parents live in a beautiful rural setting. I fell in love with their mailbox and thought it a perfect place to photograph the invitation. I love scene setters like this.

We had time for a few portraits of beautiful Christie and her bridesmaids before the ceremony. The soft summer sunlight was absolutely beautiful in the front yard and the fields across the street made for a dreamy backdrop.

Christie’s gown is Pronovias.

The bouquets are by Blue Butterfly.

Dave and the groomsmen wait at the Watch Hill Chapel for the ladies to arrive. Trish had time for a handsome groom portrait and a “man photo” of the groomsmen.

Christie and Dave pose for a formal portrait outside the Chapel after the ceremony. I do love a formal portrait with the wedding gown all arranged beautifully.

C&D chose this photo in black and white with an oval frame to hang in their home- a classic!

The stunning Weekapaug Inn, such an idyllic setting for a coastal Rhode Island wedding.

Stealing a little time for some romance and some late afternoon light, a perfect combination.

We topped off the night with the cake cutting and a stunning full moon over the water. Perfection.
