The Cushman House: A Block Island Wedding Venue

Located about three miles down Corn Neck Road, one of the most beautiful roads on Block Island RI just a short ferry ride away from Narragansett RI., The Cushman House is the perfect setting for an unforgettable experience! The Cushman House is located nearby to the most popular picturesque beach known for its white soft sand, Mansion beach. 

Mansion beach received its name after a three-story mansion also known as “white hall” built in 1887 burned down in the 1960’s and was never rebuilt. While most having their wedding on Block Island imagine getting married at the Sullivan House and Spring House Hotel, this beautiful New England charm cottage is a perfect option for your special day.

Planning a Block Island Wedding at the Cushman House

When planning a Block Island Rhode Island wedding, there are three specifically harder vendors to book. Hair and makeup artists, DJs, and officiants. Here are some tips to help you start planning! 

 Block Island provides the perfect small getaway for a destination wedding experience.  If you’re looking for more of a full-service planning option reach out to Summer Sisters.

Booking a Block Island Hair and Makeup Artist:

Koru Spa and Salt are two of the only locations to get wedding hair and makeup done on the island. Make sure to book your trials to coincide with venue walk-throughs and an engagement session on the island. I’d get in touch with both quickly as the wedding season gets hectic and Block Island vendors go fast.

Booking a Block Island Officiant:

The Town Hall has a list of officiants. Reach out to the town hall as soon as you’ve booked your wedding venue. You will have to make an appointment ahead of time to fill out your marriage license. The license must be dropped off to the Town Hall within 72 hours of your wedding day.
