The best part about a Block Island elopement — how quick it is to get to the island and spend the day getting to know the island. As it’s just a 3×7 mile island, knocking out 5 or more locations on the day of your elopement is a BREEZE. With Chelsea & Ryan, we hit the docks, the North Light and more.
The best part about going out to the island is that we can plan a day just for the two of you. If you want to go bumper boating, fishing, spend some time on the beach, eat ice cream, jump on your hotel bed, who cares. You can do it. It’s a glorious day just for the two of you and whatever the two of you want to do. The island is your play space. Go play.
The island is a gorgeous space to host your elopement and enjoy each other. Pick out some locations that are going to be a little quieter and enjoy them. Whether it’s hiking down to a private beach or snuggling up at the hotel, there’s plenty to do no matter the weather.
You don’t need to get married in the same spot 2343 people were married before, just hike the island and find something that feels you. With thousands of hidden spots on the island, finding something that’s for you and unique to you is easy to do.
You can easily make it a day or a weekend — fly out or boat out for the day or make it a whole weekend. Either way there’s plenty to do and the island is small enough to do quite a bit in a full day. Chelsea and Ryan got married on a Wednesday — they went to Town Hall, got the paperwork squared away and from there we toured the island till we found the right spot.
Plain and simple: it’s easy. You are in control of your day the whole day, there’s no we need to do xyz next or worry about greeting 150 guests. You just go do what you want to.
The focus of the day is you and your partner for life. That’s it. We get to do what inspires you in the moment. You get the time and space to really sink into the emotions of your wedding day.
