I wish you all could meet Anna and Jeff. They are just lovely, both as individuals and as a couple. Anna is incredibly kind, friendly, and driven - studying to be a pediatrician, I can see that this career path is the perfect fit for her personality. Jeff is compassionate, funny, and family focused, and is passionate about following his dream to become a surgeon! Spending time with Anna & Jeff and getting to know them and their families on their wedding day was an absolute joy. Together they make the perfect team and it showed in all the people who traveled FAR to celebrate their love and commitment to one another out on Block Island!
When Anna contacted me a year ago to discuss her Block Island wedding, I was so thrilled to get the chance to travel out to Block Island for a destination wedding. Just 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, a short ferry ride brings you to this little island that is surrounded by natural landscape with stone wall-lined rolling hills, breathtaking bluffs, and pristine beaches. There are tons of outdoor activities, dining experiences, art & music. More than 43 percent of the island is preserved and walking or biking is a great way to take in the rolling hills, farmland, and beaches. This tiny island is a dream, especially for a photographer!
Just a short walk up the hill from the ferry dock, the Rose Farm Inn was the setting for Anna & Jeff's wedding. Set on 20 acres of farmland, the Rose Farm Inn was such a peaceful, and natural setting only a short walk from town. The forecast was overcast, but oh how I love that soft, grey light!
I arrived early in the afternoon to capture some getting ready moments with Anna and her bridesmaids, as well as Jeff and his groomsmen. It was clear to see how loved these two are with 10 bridesmaids and groomsmen on each side!! Some of these photos of Anna and her bridesmaids on the large front porch and adjacent lawn are just my favorite. Such a picturesque scene and feeling of Block Island - peaceful, serene and surrounded by nature.
