    Exceptional!!! Want to book like a local? Book here!

    We could not be happier with the choice of the Easton’s Beach Rotunda for our wedding!! We worked closely with Peggy who was professional, responsive and helped us think through all the details of our day! Beth was also outstanding the day of! She was attentive and answered any questions we might have had! The space is beautiful! We were barefoot on the sand on an absolutely incredible weather day in late September. Our cocktail hour overlooked the sunset on one side of the deck and cliff walk and beach on the other. We even had a carousel which I knew would be a hit for the kids.... let alone I’ve never seen some of my adult family members smile so big! Our reception was held in the ballroom which was clean, elegant and had 360 views of the water! Our rock band also sounded excellent in the space!

    Want to book like a local? Look no further! This City of Newport venue is the absolute best!

    Amazing! Perfect beachside ceremony

    Best decision we made! I wanted to get married on the beach and the rotunda delivered with a beachside ceremony and a reception in a room surrounded with windows looking out to the water. Super inexpensive but amazing! Peggy was great through the whole process and was very helpful! Since you do have to bring in all your own vendors I recommend having a day of coordinator to be there that day- although the rotunda does provide staff to help if you need it!

    Easton's Beach's reply:

    Hi Melissa,
    Thank you for those kind words about the room and staff at the Rotunda. We worked very hard to make sure that you had the day you had envisioned. You were a pleasure for me to work with!!

    Best of luck

    Everyone at the Rotunda was friendly, professional, and helpful. Planning was a breeze. What I like about this space is that you can make it your own - it is a big, open space with stunning 360 degree views. Not only that but the carousel was a BLAST- folks in our party just loved it (see photos). People were lining up to get on.
    The venue also doesn't try to get you with hidden fees. Their prices are their prices, and what you read in the rental package is what you get. And that includes things like tables and chairs!
    We had a really good experience here, especially with bringing in a caterer who did a buffet style setup, which I think the space is conducive to.
    I highly recommend this venue.

Easton's Beach is one of our favorite venues to work at. Not only because of the fact that you cannot beat the view or getting married right on the beach but because the staff cannot do enough for you. John, Erik and Peggy are fabulous. They are so flexible with us and bend over backwards for us and their clients... as we are happy to do for them as well. We have a fantastic working relationship to them, which is a great factor in making each wedding flawless.
