Watch Hill Wedding

I had never been to Watch Hill before this marvelous wedding. In fact, I knew very little about this picturesque Rhode Island town. This coastal village in Westerly, Rhode Island, is an elegantly subtle counterpoint to the flashier Newport, located nearby. In Watch Hill and Westerly, beautiful Victorian mansions dot the gorgeous coastline. It’s also home to the Ocean House. The Ocean House is the only AAA Five Diamond Hotel and Forbes Five-Star in all of Rhode Island!..A Watch Hill wedding is a very special thing. For one, you have your choice of incredible outdoor locations to use as backdrops for your wedding day photography. It truly is a special and unique place to be. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Montauk, New York! Watch Hill is located at the furthest southwestern spot of Rhode Island. It’s situated on a peninsula that cuts nearly into Block Island Sound. Watch Hill is only two hours in a car from Boston and a three from New York City. This makes it an excellent choice for a Watch Hill wedding, as your guests don’t have to travel far from nearby major cities...Watch Hill has long been a playground for the elite. Golfing and tennis at the Misquamicut Club, hanging out at the Watch Hill Yacht Club, and dining at the Ocean House were all part of daily life. While most of the original Victorian hotels were damaged and ultimately destroyed by hurricanes and fires, the Ocean House remains. Currently, the Ocean House’s most famous next door neighbor is Taylor Swift, who purchased a gorgeous waterfront mansion just a stone’s throw from the Ocean House’s front door...At this particular Watch Hill wedding, the bride bought some glorious Manolo Blahnik shoes, incredibly chic yet utterly practical because they were flats! 1/160; f/2.8; ISO 125; 24.0 mm.
