Dreamy Aldrich Mansion Wedding | Warwick RI Wedding Photographer
Robby and Erin celebrated their love with a dreamy summer Aldrich Mansion wedding in Warwick, RI. This beautiful wedding was filled with cohesive romantic pink, lush green to blend in with gold accent touch in this historical majestic wedding venue.
This couple met April 8th, 2018 when Robby shook her hand in the bread aisle of Dave’s Marketplace. However, they recognized each other from both work place. She made sure to find Robby’s work email the next day and reached out for some local running routes. They bonded over a mutual fun fact of our love for cheetahs and their passion for running. It became clear later that they were both foodies. Rob asked to cook her dinner and she knew at once he was a keeper. Many runs and meals later and we still love how we met.

History of Aldrich Mansion Wedding Venue
Aldrich Mansion is situated on a majestic seventy acre estate overlooking beautiful Narragansett Bay,This seventy-room, French chateau hosts a unique blend of European artistry and craftsmanship reflecting an era of yesteryear. Built during the “Golden Years” of Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, a Rhode Island native born to poverty but destined for greatness. The estate once held a Teahouse, since destroyed by fire. It was here Abby Aldrich, one of the Senator’s eight children, wed John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (the sole male heir to the Standard Oil fortune and father of Nelson A. Rockefeller, former Governor of New York and later Vice President of the United States).
Along with the elegant Chateau itself, the estate is home to a Carriage House, Caretaker’s Cottage and Boathouse. Originally built to aid in the transportation of goods to Warwick Neck, a railway and supply tunnel led from the 150-foot tower to the Mansion.
Construction on the Chateau began in 1896 by the New York firm of Carrere & Hastings. Nearly two hundred craftsmen, many of whom were dispatched from Europe, were commissioned to create this dynamic structure. Some sixteen years later, the seventy-room Mansion, once known as Indian Oaks, was completed. In 1939, eighty-five acres of the Aldrich Mansion estate were transferred by the Senator’s heirs to the Providence Diocese for a token sum. In 1946, Our Lady of Providence Seminary made the Aldrich Mansion its home.
