A Block Island Elopement with AJ and Morgan

Getting married on Block Island

AJ and Morgan had a huge wedding planned for this year. When the pandemic hit, then what was going to be the plan?

Well, the obvious, elope on Block Island.

The two spent the day before their wedding location scouting on the island. After looking over a few beaches they fell in love with the Grace’s Cove Beach off Coast Guard Road. This spot looks right at sunset and is far from any businesses.

As we came down the hill at Coast Guard, I saw the moped marking the beach — a Block Island getaway. Don’t worry y’all it was just for pictures, no mopeds were driven on dirt roads.

This side of the island is covered in gorgeous greens that are speckles in sun. The tones are incredible and the thing paintings are made of. Also, makes a perfect backdrop for your Block Island beach wedding.

The two were surrounded by their closest friends and family to celebrate a magical day.

For their ceremony the two joined their family on the beach with a cocktail hour just after. Morgan’s mom put together the perfect beach side table set up with a charcuterie board, flowers, and champagne.

The family gathered to enjoy one another and chat before the Officiant, Ken Lacoste arrived. Hiring an officiant on Block Island can be a little tricky — there’s only a few, Ken Lacoste, Kay Transue, on island.

As the sunset, we dashed up to the Spring House Hotel for pictures at the hotel and dinner after. With a veranda overlooking the water, and some of the best food on the island, the Spring House Hotel is the perfect spot for a small dinner after a beach wedding.
