Test 1

Katie and Lauren’s earliest childhood memories include each other and Block Island.  They were introduced well before they can remember, likely plopped down on Mansion Beach next to each other with a couple of sand toys.  This friendship is one of the few rare ones in life, one where you grow closer over time and experience all the exciting moments together. 

Katie and Lauren have taken their friendship in the best direction yet.  As two Block Island Brides, and as two people who stood by each other on their wedding days, they know all it takes to make a dream, Block Island Wedding come to life.  They look forward to being by your side on your special day too.
