Our wedding at Regatta Place was a dream come true. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this venue!
When I first set eyes on Regatta Place online after my husband, Phil, and I got engaged, I knew we had to have our reception there. We decided to stop through Newport on our way home to NYC to see it and fell in love. Elsa Fisher helped us that day and was warm, helpful, and accomodating. She was willing to work with us to accomodate our budget and we could not believe how reasonable the venue was. We booked on the spot. Throughout the year, the whole team at Regatta Place made planning our destination simple and stress-free. We also had a blast at the wonderfully organized tasting event called the Prelude at Ocean Cliff in Februrary.
During the stressful weeks leading up to the wedding, I had nothing to worry about as far as the reception. I knew the venue had everything under control. Rebecca, our coordinator, was incredible, as was Kristina. Our weather forecast was terrible, but they had umbrellas for all of the guests and a rain plan just in case (we ended up with beautiful weather, but it was reassuring that they were so prepared). Worried about not being able to eat? Have no fear! They assign you with a "captain" throughout the night who caters to the bride and groom's every need who will fill up your glass and meet you at the gate with every appetizer on a platter to make sure you're getting to experience your wedding. They timed everything PERFECTLY. They waited until Phil & I were finished greeting all of our guests before bringing out our dinner just so it would still be warm and fresh.
I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. It was a beautiful reception and I couldn't have asked for more. It was our dream wedding. We are still getting compliments from all of our guests saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and that they were so impressed by the classy venue. Thank you to everyone at Regatta Place!
Regatta Place could not have been more perfect for our wedding day! The venue itself is beautiful and thankfully the weather that day cooperated as well! From the start of the planning process everything was so smooth and efficient. You didn't need to worry about anything since everything you needed to do and provide was clearly outlined from the start! Working with Rebecca with the coordination of how the day would go and endless emails I would send with questions she was nothing but responsive and helpful throughout the months leading up to our wedding. They provide both a ceremony manager and a catering manager that you meet at your final meeting who are going to be with you the entire day. They were both AMAZING! I used to work as a catering manager and I can say they were the best I have ever worked with. Everything went smoothly and if it didn't I had no idea which is what any bride would want. Besides going above and beyond for me, the groom, and the bridal party they gave extra attention to our parents as well! My favorite story from the night is my grandfather who is 90 years old wanted chocolate ice cream with the wedding cake which they didn't have. So they ended up bringing him a big chocolate milkshake instead! It's the stories like those that make you realize what level of service this venue provides and how they go above and beyond. Maggie, Kristina, and Rebecca were amazing and I cannot thank them enough for making our day as amazing as it was!
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.
