    Absolutely Amazing!!!

    My son and my daughter-in-law had their wedding at Gurney's Resort in Newport this past weekend. I can't say enough good things about our experience there. The quality of service, food, professionalism of the teams, and over all experience at Gurney's was impeccable! Everyone there was truly amazing and I would recommend this venue to everyone & anyone looking to have their wedding there! Their wedding was absolutely perfect from beginning to end.

    Worth it just for the views!!

    Getting married at Gurney's Newport was amazing, ten stars across the board! From our first meet and greet to the final goodbye was said the morning after, everything was perfect. The team's professionalism and attention to detail was superb during the entire planning process. Jacquelyn was there for every step, even for my many after-hour questions and crazy ideas. During the day of the event, Jacquelyn and her team had every aspect covered. Even when the wind kicked up during the ceremony, they dropped everything (literally their radio and name tag) and were there to help me get down the aisle without blowing away. The location was beyond perfect, on the lawn with the bridge in the background was beyond perfect in every way. The venue it’s self was beautiful, inside and out. And the food – it was beyond what we expected, guests are still raving about their meals. We had the opportunity to have an after-party which was also very accommodating from food to the entertainment of the fire-pits, etc. And the next morning we had an amazing breakfast in the same room we hosted our wedding. Our out of town guest loved the experience and even talked about coming back for their own vacations in the future. I could not have asked for a better experience with Gurney’s Newport. If I could do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat and would not change a thing!

    A wedding day set along the beautiful ocean waters in Newport, Rhode Island is truly amazing at the Hyatt Regency. The lighthouse setting for your ceremony is just breathtaking. The Rose Island Room is magnificent for your reception to follow. You can't go wrong with the Hyatt Regency and since I've been there numerous times in the past 29 years I can definitely say its always a wedding day dream!
