We love working at Fort Adams in Providence, RI, and it’s not hard to see why. This one-of-a-kind Southern New England wedding venue is an actual fortress, strategically positioned at the start of Narragansett Bay. Constructed between 1824 and 1857, it was a vital means of coastal defense again potential intruders into the bay. The fort was active during World War II, with enough room to house 2,400 troops.
Today, it’s an amazing piece of history with even more amazing water views. Katie and Sam’s wedding there last June took full advantage of the site’s architecture, while the lawn afforded plenty of room for their 46′ x 85′ reception tent, outfitted with bistro lights, a pine dance floor, and a band stage. The catering by Smoke & Pickles was topnotch, as usual, and we are grateful to Mattie’s Studio for these amazing pics!
