Ashley & Ryan Part I: A Rhode Island Backyard Tented Wedding | Rhode Island Wedding Planners

What do you get when you mix a heartfelt ceremony, a beautiful couple, a fun group of friends and a whole lot of laughter?

A fabulous wedding day!

Ashley and Ryan’s wedding was a perfect mix of emotion and fun. From their ceremony at Christ the King church on the URI campus in Kingston, RI to transforming the backyard of Ashley’s childhood home, there were tons of personalized touches and outrageously fun moments.

The girls started off the day getting ready at Ashley’s parent’s house. They spend a relaxing morning getting their hair done and sipping champagne.

¬†Ashley’s wedding dress was breathtaking and perfectly matched her sparkly heels. She chose turquoise dresses for her bridal party and matched them with soft touches of peach and coral flowers for a fabulous pop of color.
