Block Island Redux

Last time we were on Block Island, it was way off season. When we recently returned, the island was quiet and calm; many of the restaurants and bars were closing up shop after the weekend (and were consequently running out of strange things, like sour cream and salad dressing!).

But we were there for a big wedding with two of the most loving families who brought such warmth to the festivities. An example: at the end of the reception, the bride's brother and brother-in-law sang an amazing version of this Boss classic with new lyrics that were completely personalized for the happy couple (the bride is a HUGE Bruce fan). Each time the chorus came, all 200 guests sang along. It probably sounds cheesy, but it was pure wedding magic.

I remember feeling like it was a bright, sunny day on their wedding, but looking back at these photos, I realize it was a bit overcast. All the love in the air was giving me rose colored glasses!


  1. 200 guests singing along to a song sounds amazing!

    These pictures are so lovely; Block Island is one of those places I've always wanted to visit but never have. Now I want to go even more!

    1. It's a great spot, and SUCH an easy trip from Boston (I think it only took 1 hour 20 minutes to get to the ferry, and there's free parking there during the off season!). Totally doable as a day trip.
