When daydreaming about an elegant summertime wedding that is quintessentially New England, there is perhaps no better venue than the iconic Ocean House resort in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. With event planner extraordinaire Sarah True of True Events at the helm, the majestic seaside landmark hosted a full weekend of wedding festivities for Natalie and Eric last June 2016.
The couple, who met while studying abroad in Rome, wed on a lawn adorned with rose petals, with stately Ocean House as their backdrop on one side and the Atlantic on the other. Their Sperry Tent reception – setup by our RI tent provider Sperry Tents Marion with a generous 66′ x 106′ sailcloth tent and full pine flooring – was personalized with flowing drapery and chandeliers by Ryan Designs, with gold accents and lush summertime floral arrangements by Hana Floral Design. The evening capped off with a surprise fireworks display and a sweet kiss beneath the illuminated night sky.
