I’m equal parts: posh, city-dwelling fashion lady and give-me-a-pony-and-I’ll-break-it gal, so when weddings like this elegant farm wedding in Rhode Island (baby goats included) come our way it’s a major yes, please!

A major charm of New England is the iconic farmhouse style – weathered wood shingles on the original, simple “American style” house. Such images always transport me to summer days escaping the big city to lobster paradise. Rhode Island is just that – charming farmland, and quaint, luxurious seaside escapes – the ultimate wedding destination if you ask me.

Leslie and Mason managed to enjoy the spoils of their farm venue (cuddling some adorable goats for portraits, ah!) while making their wedding absolutely chic. With upscale fashion and classic wedding decor, this New England wedding photographed by Kir Tuban is far from “rustic” but rather as fresh as the oysters down the bay.

From Kir Tuben Photography

Leslie & Mason tied the knot on September 16th at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island. They got married in the garden outside the little farm home and had their reception in the seaside chic barn!

Their day was all about having a low-key celebration that represented them – close friends, great food and family. They even got to hold the baby goats! The live band played exclusively 80s music and the newlyweds left in a white vintage car. I just adored this wedding because these are two genuine, amazing people.

The Ceremony

I think the intimate ceremony really represented them. All of the wedding and reception was on the same property so they got to spend maximum time with all their guests!

The Photography

I have known Leslie for ten years. We both swam our entire lives and she was actually my recruit at Duke! In fact, she was my very first recruit when I was 17 years old. As the younger sister in my household, I was so excited to finally be able to host someone and be the “big sis”. I even have a Facebook album that is titled “Leslie is coming to Duke”. Although we became fast friends, she ended up attending Princeton and thank goodness she did because this is where she met Mason.

Advice to Other Couples

Their advice would be to go small and pick vendors that you trust! It makes your day so easy when you trust those running your day!
