A little bit of paradise

Emily and I ended last week with a special site visit to the Ocean House in Westerly, RI. We were honored to be over night guests along with a handful of other wedding professionals including the ladies from True Event, Merci New YorkA.a.B Creates and Daughter of Design. Now let's preface this by admitting that we were huge fans of this venue to begin with, but after two days of soaking up the five star luxury first hand, we're flat out obsessed. So of course, we've got to give you the scoop about our time behind the doors of this iconic and breathtaking resort!!

Toni {their Sr. Catering Manager} hosted us and could not have been more welcoming, warm and professional. Our time started with a full tour to get acquainted with the property & amenities, including the restaurants, bars, the on site herb garden, work out facilities, lap pool, hearing about the array of activities offered seasonally & daily and touring the award winning OH! Spa {check out their relaxation room that over looks the ocean}...

We settled into a wine and cheese tasting with the Ocean House's own Food Forager {who was so sweet, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about her job} then finished our tour by taking in the INCREDIBLE views from the penthouse, various balconies and the side deck that over looks the ocean as well as the croquet court...

Post tour, we checked into our rooms and proceeded to gush about the cozy beds {with 400-thread-count Frette bed linens and 100% goose down pillows... OMG}, the huge soaking tub, the luxe robes, our fantastic view... and the complimentary treats just pushed us over the edge.

Our day finished with cocktails with the general manager and an incredible dinner with Toni and a special visit from Abby from Style Me Pretty. The service was impeccable, food was phenomenal and their house made wine {as well as their full selection} was to die for. 

Really, these few photos and brief overview can't begin to do justice to our experience. You really must go, if you're an east coaster... whether it's just for a day trip and dinner, a special celebration or a search for the perfect wedding venue!!
