A more contemporary location, Belle Mer provides an exquisite aura you won’t find at any other venue. Their ocean lawn features a fire pit, ceremony circle, crushed oyster shell paths—and you won’t believe the beautiful seaside sunsets. The location can host 1,000 guests, but if you’d rather be inside, then go for the water salon, which has its own retractable glass walls opening to the ocean.

Fort Adams, Newport, RI

Take in the scenic views of Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor, and you’ll immediately understand why Fort Adams is such a popular location for wedding ceremonies. The sprawling lawns offer a great setting for a large wedding. The location is also just minutes from downtown Newport, where guests can stay!

The Farmer’s Daughter isn’t just a gardening center—it’s also a fantastic location for your wedding!

Then head over to the event field, which can hold up to 400 guests.

Ocean House at Watch Hill, Watch Hill, RI
