You ask.... Why Get Married In Newport R.I. ?
It was the original Hamptons after all! A summer playground with wonderful style!
An Editor at www.DestinationIDo.com just asked me ...
"What does Newport , RI have to offer to a couple
trying to organize a wedding?"
A simply spectacular assortment of locations - Dazzling ocean views – Elegant style from the classic to the contemporary!
From a former summer White House, two Vanderbilt mansions, a Belmont stable that looks like a medieval castle, Classic Hotel ballrooms, to a new hip South Beach-style venue … Intimate or Grand, Old World or Modern…the diversity of the venues Newport has to offer is unparalleled
Newport has so many resources for a couple and their guests to take advantage of on the wedding weekend.
Boating, Biking, Fishing, Scuba Diving, Beaches, Golf, Tennis, Great Restaurants, Shopping, Antiquing. Museums, Historic sites, Art Galleries , Nature Preserves and great festivals for every season.
Summer of course is a favorite time to enjoy Newport but don’t overlook the romantic feeling of the Holidays with cozy firesides and Victorian Christimas decorations or Fall when the leaves are turning and the air is newly crisp…Personally, I look forward to the Jazz Festival every summer as a Grace Kelly-worthy occasion (after all she immortalized the festival in the film, High Society) but The Clam Chowder Cook Off and the Boat Show are also great times in Newport.
Some couples will even choose to plan their wedding weekend around these festivals.
Buy tickets for your guests and build these fun, fabulous festivals in to the wedding weekend activities.
I love the Americas Cup Charters, where you can rent Historic 12 Meter sailing yachts and create your own Americas Cup Experience!!!
It’s a Newport tradition to hold a Pre-Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Race, the Groomsmen Vs the Bridesmaids!
Newport is also the home of the Tennis Hall of Fame and tennis courts are plentiful - if boat races don’t engage the wedding party, tennis is an alternative.
And for true tennis buffs, the Casino is one of Newport ’s most extraordinary places to get married and hold wedding festivities…
Newport offers entertaining pursuits for singles as well as couples, families with children as well as parents of the bride and groom
Every one feels welcome here. So come be married in The City by the Sea, we’ll do our best to see that you live happily ever after. Photo From The Movie Evening, filmed and set In Newport RI
