It may be the smallest of the states, but you’d never guess it from its long list of must-see sights.
Rhode Island is renowned for its stunning seaside. Few states can compete with Rhode Island for its soft signs, quaint Colonial sea towns and mesmerising views across the water (there are no prizes for guessing why it’s called The Ocean State).
If you’ve been dreaming of a beach wedding, we cannot imagine a more perfect spot than the sands of Rhode Island.
The architecture and cities of Rhode Island also contain their fair share of unmissable activities. The cultural sights in the state’s capital city of Providence include Waterplace Park, the WaterFire art installation and Riverwalk.
The city of Newport is renowned for its sailing heritage, as well as a number of Gilded Age mansions that are located there. These include the magnificent Vanderbilt mansion (built in the late 1800s) called The Breakers.
Elsewhere in the state, other famous locations include the RISD Museum of Art, the Rosecliff house museum and the Marblehouse mansion, or natural treasures like the Cliff Walk or Narragansett Bay Beaches.
What we adore about Rhode Island is that it gives couples the chance to escape the world’s hustle and bustle, and create a ceremony that is totally true to them. With the ocean as their backdrop, couples can tie the knot in a tranquil, timeless setting, which gives the entire celebration an effortless, understated magnificence.
As you can see, Rhode Island makes a sensational choice of wedding destination for countless reasons.
