    Amazing venue!

    My husband and I got married at Ocean Cliff on a Friday in late September and it was absolutely beautiful! All of our guests were complementing the venue and its beauty from the start of the reception until the end. Allison was our catering coordinator leading up to the wedding and she was fantastic. We asked a lot of questions and she was always very quick to respond and accommodate anything special or different we wanted to do. Erin was our banquet manager and she was as well excellent! We met with her the week of the wedding to go through everything, even the week of we had last minute changes and she took care of everything and also helped coordinate with our vendors. The day of the wedding she was there for everything, even when we needed to come to Ocean Cliff to take pictures because it became too windy at Brenton Point. The venue itself was spectacular! We had a beautiful day and were able to host our cocktail hour outside, it was incredible, people couldn't stop talking about how pretty it was, not to mention the sunset pictures! They also have the guests go around the property versus walking through the reception room so the first time they see it is when they go in for dinner, it was a beautiful entrance. The layout of the space is excellent as well. The rooms outside the main reception room are perfect for the bar and the photo booth we had. All in all, we cannot say enough about Ocean Cliff, it is the most beautiful wedding venue in Newport and the staff and everyone you work with is amazing!

    Absolutely Amazing!!!

    We had my son and daughter-in-laws rehearsal dinner at Ocean Cliff in Newport this past weekend and it was absolutely amazing! We had 39 people out in their tent with the incredible water/sunset in the background and it couldn't have been a more beautiful setting. I cannot say enough good things about our experience there. The quality of service, food, professionalism of the teams, and over all experience at Ocean Cliff was impeccable! Everyone there was truly amazing and I would recommend this venue to everyone & anyone looking to have an event there! It was perfect from beginning to end.

  • Gwendolyn Pellegrino Photography Wedding Photographers

    A wedding celebration at OceanCliff means that not only will every detail be executed perfectly, but you and your guests will also be treated to spectacular ocean vistas and the Newport Bridge. I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding in this amazing mansion, capturing all of it's splendor. I couldn't speak more highly of it. Enjoy your wedding planning!

  • ArtImage by Sam Chinigo Wedding Photographers

    Excellent venue & staff. Wonderful views of the bay and the bridge. As I always tell my couples...find a unique venue that will create an experience for your guests. If you're looking for a great location for a ceremony by the water...this is it.
