From the second we stepped into The Regatta Place we knew it was our venue. Not only are the tents, teak floors and chandeliers gorgeous, but the staff was right on point. They are a well oiled machine who knows how to pull off the perfect day while still keeping each event personalized to the individual couple. Leading up to the event they checked in with us along the way to answer questions, make sure we were on track with the details and to assure us that things were coming along fine. They followed up and confirmed all our vendors the week before and made sure everyone knew the plan. The day of, they took care of everything, including making sure we had drinks and food coming all night long. The staff was beside us all night long helping us through the ceremony and the steps afterwards which left us with nothing to worry or think about except enjoying our guests, each other and having fun. I would recommend Regatta Place a million times over for any couple looking to be married in a true Newport venue.
First off if you are looking for a full service venue in Newport, RI with views of the water then Regatta Place is it. The venue itself it stunning. All my husband and I really wanted was a tent on the water in Newport and so we picked Regatta Place and we could not have been happier. The views of the water and the open air feel of the venue is incredible.
From the moment we booked the venue to our actual wedding day was about a year, and throughout that year all of the staff of the Regatta Place and the newport experience were incredibly helpful and easy to work with. They answered every question I had, and there were many.
Our wedding at the Regatta Place could not have run more smoothly, from our ceremony (which was held there) to the very last song, everything was seamless. There was never a hiccup or any issues, and if there were the staff never let on. That being said I need to specifically thank Rebecca, Christina, Maggie and Therese. Those women played a major part in the actual day and it was perfect!
Now about the food, it was amazing! The hors d'oeuvres were unbelievable and the entrees were fantastic too. Literally everyone at our wedding kept talking about how good the food was!
I am so sad that the day is over, I just want to relive it all again, it was that amazing!
We CAN NOT even express how happy we are! Every single detail in planning our wedding with the staff at the Regatta Place, especially Rebecca and Maggie, to the actually day was PERFECTION! We wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much! Exceptional venue!
I truly can not say enough positive things about Regatta Place. From the minute we walked onto the property we knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. The staff was amazing to work with from start to finish -- Galen was very helpful answering our initial questions and getting the date set up; Rebecca was extremely responsive, helpful and knowledgeable throughout the planning process; Maggie and Kristina were absolutely incredible on our wedding day - they literally thought of everything, and gave us an stress-free evening where we didn't have to worry about anything. The whole staff truly saw our vision for the wedding and executed it perfectly.
The venue itself is just breathtaking, pictures literally don't do it justice. We were surrounded by gorgeous yachts and sailboats with a beautiful view of the harbor. All of the food was delicious, and guests especially raved about the passed appetizers. Overall we had THE PERFECT day at Regatta Place and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a gorgeous, classic, nautical wedding venue in Newport that doesn't have to break the bank.
We had our ceremony and reception at Regatta on 8.24.14. I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had working with Regatta. From the moment we saw the venue (in the winter I mind you!) we knew it would be the perfect spot for our late summer wedding! Rebecca, as well as the day of team, Maggie and Kristina were absolutely amazing. As we walked in to the event space before the ceremony I stopped to look around and was amazed at how beautifully everything was set up, they went above and beyond our expectations! The location itself is breathtaking, from the beautiful sailboats and yachts, the soft breeze, to the various lounge spots on the docks it could not have been a more beautiful location. Day of the wedding we felt completely stress free, every detail had been thought of. Our guests have not stopped talking about the day, I believe it has been quoted as the, "Best wedding we've ever been to" a number of times, and I couldn't agree more :) Additionally, the food was delicious and the passed appetizers were perfect as well. Anyone looking for a stress free, nautical and beautiful Newport wedding location, this is it! Thank you, Regatta for our perfect wedding day!
From start to finish, everything about working with Regatta Place was unbelievable. Rebecca (catering manager), Kristina (event manager), and Maggie (ceremony coordinator) made planning our wedding day a breeze. I especially appreciated how helpful they were with contacting the other vendors, and coordinating the set-up and breakdown during my actual wedding day. In that respect, I really felt like I had a built in wedding planner, and it took a lot of stress of of the shoulders of my husband and I. Beyond being incredibly professional, the entire staff was just so nice and genuinely pleasant. I couldn't imagine our wedding day any better than it was, and I highly recommend Regatta Place.
The venue and staff were absolutely amazing! The perfect venue for a summer wedding!
Beautiful venue! Very easy to work with and had wonderful service on the day of the event-- bride and groom did not have to worry about a thing!
We had our ceremony and reception at Regatta Place on 6/15/14 and couldn't have asked for anything better. I got so many great compliments about the staff, food and not to mention the ambiance! Everything was absolutely perfect and we wish we could do it all over again. Everyone is very organized which allows the bridal party to be completely stress free. Thanks again to everyone at Regatta Place!
the backdrop and setting at regatta place are breathtaking, and was exactly what my now husband and I wanted for our wedding. the team there truly made all of our dreams come true in executing our vision for our classic, nautical but elegant wedding. everyone was wonderful to work with, from elsa in the sales department, to rebecca our catering director, to the staff the night of, we can't say enough great things about how well everyone tended to our needs and made sure everything went perfectly. our guests thoroughly enjoyed the setting, the cocktail hour, food and ambiance.
When we chose Regatta as our wedding venue, we knew it would be a beautiful location, but we could never have imagined how wonderful the staff would be. The stress associated with planning a wedding was alleviated by the professional, knowledgeable, and friendly people we worked with at Regatta along the way. Rebecca answered our questions quicker than we could ask them during the planning process, Maggie was organized and ensured we enjoyed every moment of the night and that visually, it was what we had envisioned. The guests raved about the location and beauty of it all, and also how delicious the food was. There are numerous wedding venues to chose from in Newport, and we truly believe we made the right choice. We couldn't be happier with it all.
FANTASTIC VENUE and individuals to work with.
I have nothing bad to say and would recommend this venue to everyone.
The views are priceless and the food is excellent. You can NOT go wrong. The staff is friendly, approachable and always available. It was love at first sight for me, the venue that is. And when I met the staff, I just knew we had to get married here. I have a very busy life style and the reassurance with the team here is undescribable. They are organized and beyond helpful. When you drop everything off at your final meeting prior to the BIG day, rest assured that everything will be taken care of and set up for you.
The anxiety that comes with the big day can be overwhelming. The staffs ability to ease your worries about the tables, the card table, the ceremony etc. is incredible.
When I arrived and saw the settings I literally cried. It was more perfect than I could have ever envisioned.
Our guests are all still talking about the "fairy tale" venue and the food.
I cant thank the team enough for all they did and the support they gave.
I cannot say enough about this venue. The staff is amazing, from booking to the very end of the reception, they were responsive, helpful, and incredibly professional. The wedding runs like clockwork and takes so much stress off of the couple. We got married on a Sunday in May for a very reasonable price. There isn't better scenery in my opinion. If you are looking for a romantic, lovely wedding, you should certainly consider this venue.
I just can't say enough good things about Regatta Place. From booking our wedding with Galen, to planning it with Rebecca, to the day-of-service from Jeff and Maggie - everything was flawless and stress free.
The venue is remarkable. If you want a unique ceremony location, this is it. Getting married on a dock while gorgeous sailboats breezed past us was awesome. Then being able to walk right over to the cocktail area, sit down on their beautiful outdoor couches that stare at Newport and the Harbor was perfect. The reception tent is stunning - our guests raved about it all night.
If you want a truly special location with fantastic food and incredible service, Regatta Place is the ideal wedding venue for you.
The food was FANTASTIC. Maggie kept bringing us trays of appetizers to the bridal suite, so none of us went hungry. I've been in several other weddings and the attention to detail that the staff provide here is exceptional.
I cannot recommend Regatta Place highly enough. We had the most amazing ceremony and reception and we owe so much of it to Regatta Place and the wonderful staff there. From the time we booked until after the event, everyone was so kind and helpful. Every detail was attended to, the food was fantastic, the place was beautiful...I could go on and on. We could not have asked for more.
It is such a unique setting for ceremony reception. We had countless people tell us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Please consider Regatta Place - you will not regret it.
My husband and I had an amazing wedding at Regatta Place thanks to Rebecca and Jeff and the rest of the team. We chose Regatta Place due to the unique location on Goat Island as well as the professionalism of the staff we met with at the initial meetings. Rebecca was extremely helpful with all of the pre wedding coordination and did an excellent job answering my questions and helping me with planning. She was very responsive to my emails and was very professional in all of her corespondence. She was very thorough throughout the planning process so I knew I was in good hands. She called all of our vendors the week before the wedding to ensure everyone was on the same page. The day of the wedding everything went perfect thanks to the onsite team. Jeff did an excellent job ensuring we stayed on schedule and coordinating the major wedding day events. The food and service was excellent and we had our own personal server (Maggie) who made sure we had the food and drinks we needed. All of the guests commented on how beautiful the setting was and how the entire event went so smooth. We're really glad we chose Regatta Place and would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding venue on the water.
