    Belle Mer - Amazing Venue!

    The Belle Mer is truly an incredible venue for a wedding! Our guests cannot stop talking about the amazing seaside views, delicious food, and attentive staff - everything was first class. We worked with Sara Leonard and she is simply incredible. Knowledgeable about all things weddings, she made the process fun and easy for my now husband and I. If you get the chance to work with Sara you are lucky! On the day of the wedding we were also paired with Ruth who was our bridal attendant, While there are a million things happen during the day Ruth was right by our side. She always made sure we had food and drinks in our hands and her calming presence made the day unforgettable. If you are looking to have your wedding in Newport look no further!

    Obsessed with Belle Mer

    Worth the price- breathtaking views along the water, on the grass, great backgrounds too for pictures. Very naturally beautiful, doesn't need much decor which is why I fell in love with it. We had an AMAZING SUNSET TOO!!
    Food & cake were included in the price, so that was nice we didn't need to go through other vendors.
    Great staff- day of coordinator Allegra, I couldn't have done this without her. Super accommodating and helpful throughout the process and that day too.

    Dream venue and best wedding coordinator EVER!

    My husband and I got married in June at the Belle Mer, Island House. We really wanted a unique venue with a classy, coastal, relaxed vibe and the Island House was perfect for us! We have the most amazing memories in this space--including a stunning sunset over the water with a view of the Pell Bridge. The best part of Belle Mer for us was our wedding coordinator, Allegra Micheletti. Allegra was the most organized, fun, kind-hearted person and the night wouldn't have gone the same without her. She was on top of every detail and made the night of the wedding go so smoothly. Allegra felt like part of our family. She is so talented and made the wedding planning process fun--I actually looked forward to our calls together because it was like talking to a friend! We love Allegra and can never thank her enough for taking such good care of us and making our wedding day so memorable and relaxing.
