Fort Adams is a special place. In the nighttime it is magical. We had our ceremony inside the fort December 8th. Jen was more than helpful to us throughout the process. She made every request, thought, question seem like no big deal, in a good way, and she worked to make our ceremony as special as we hoped it would be.Sent on 12/30/2018
Between the care they take of the fort, our lighting and florals (shout out to GreenLion), it is truly a magical place. xo, Laurel

Unique venue with beautiful views!
We had our ceremony and reception at Fort Adams in August and still can’t believe how perfect the venue was! Jen was so helpful throughout the planning process and the staff was so hospitable during our walk through and for the wedding day. They catered to our every need- they drove our guests from the parking lot to the lawn on golf carts and even brought the bridal party around on golf carts so that we could move efficiently from photos to the ceremony, to cocktail hour, and reception.Sent on 01/08/2019
We had our ceremony on the lawn with stunning views of the bridge and boats- our guests were amazed at how picturesque the scenery was. Our cocktail hour was in the casemates and parade field, which was a great space for guests to sit back, play games, and marvel in the history and beauty of the fort. We had a tent on North Lawn for the reception, and it was an amazing place to see the sunset and the bridge and moon lit up at night.
Having our wedding at Fort Adams was the best decision! Our photographer and videographer had never shot there before and were super excited about all of the great photo opportunities both inside and outside. The venue is a blank slate for you to create the wedding of your dreams with a beautiful backdrop rich in history and views. Jen and the Fort Adams Trust Staff gave us the best day of our lives!

Unbelievably stunning venue, excellent hospitality
Fort Adams is a stunning venue. We had our ceremony outside the walls facing the water and our reception inside the Fort, both in the casemates and in a Tent. Every part of the venue is beautiful and makes for amazing pictures. Fort Adams is where the host the folk festival so the staff are seasoned professionals when it comes to events. There is no request, large or small, that they can't tackle. Jen, the venue coordinator, is absolutely fantastic. She is warm and helpful and incredibly detail oriented. She was super flexible when we needed to show up a little earlier than planned and even put out some of the Fort's Adirondack chairs for our guests to make the space between the casemates and the tent more homey. Next to my day-of coordinator, Jen was absolutely crucial to the success of our wedding. I honestly cannot say enough good things about her. If I had to do it all over again, I would pick Fort Adams a million times over.Sent on 11/06/2018
