Dreamy destination for a Newport Wedding

From the moment we first visited Island House at Belle Mer, we were captivated by the space and the grounds - from the well-maintained gardens, the elegant architecture, and the pristine waterfront setting.

Sara Leonard, our incredible event specialist, played a pivotal role in making our day so perfect. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and unwavering support were truly exceptional. Her ability to handle all the intricate logistics and her willingness to go the extra mile made our experience stress-free and enjoyable.

The food at Belle Mer was exceptional, and our guests raved about the delicious cuisine served at our wedding, from the hors d'oeuvres to entr茅es and desserts. The culinary team truly impressed us with their creativity and commitment to excellence. They accommodated dietary preferences and allergies seamlessly, ensuring every guest was well taken care of.

Our wedding day at Island House at Belle Mer was everything we had ever envisioned, and more. The combination of the stunning venue and exceptional service created a day that will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
With love,
Kendall & Jose

Beautiful Venue

My husband and I are so happy we chose Belle Mer as our wedding venue. Everyone there is incredibly professional and knowledgeable and they made sure our wedding was executed exactly as we wanted with ease. Meghan was a delight to work with, and was a huge part of making our vision a reality. Our guests came up to us all night raving about the food, ambiance and staff. Thank you Meghan and team for a magical night!

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!
