    An absolute dream!

    Maggie and her team were amazing from start to finish. We booked Regatta Place for our ceremony and reception in 2019. Due to Covid, we had to postpone to 2022. With that said, Maggie was responsive and an absolute dream to work with throughout the long wait. On the day, Maggie and Jenny totally exceeded our expectations. All of our guests were extremely impressed with the food, location, and service. I can't recommend Regatta Place enough. If you're looking for a coastal RI wedding, book Regatta Place and you will not be disappointed! Also, thank you to Maya for keeping our bridal party well fed and happy the whole night. They can't stop talking about the service she provided. Thank you!

    Regatta Place's reply:

    Thank you very much Sydney for this wonderful review! Our team will be happy to hear that everyone enjoyed the food and service. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos as well. Come back and visit us soon!

    The Perfect Venue For The Experience Seekers on a Budget

    We knew we wanted to get married somewhere that allowed us to give our guests more than just ONE day but a weekend to remember. We also knew the vibe we were going for was comfortable but upscale. The only thing was that we had a pretty modest budget. Regatta Place was the PERFECT solution - they offered a discounted rate for the Schooner Aurora sailboat where we hosted friends/family the day before the wedding. That experience alone had us all swooning.

    Wedding day was absolutely perfect. All of the preparation to get to wedding day was also perfect. Maggie was easy to communicate with and the rest of the staff was phenomenal. The food was amazing and our guests say it was one of the best venues/weddings they've been to. You would be silly not to check it out... THANK YOU RP!

    Regatta Place's reply:

    Hi Christina! Thank you for your experience and those gorgeous photos!! We are thrilled to hear your friends and family had the best time and will pass along your kind words to our team, thanks again!

    Regatta Place

    Regatta Place was truly an amazing experience from start to finish! As a bride who had to reschedule my initial wedding due to covid, we were grateful of how Regatta Place & the entire staff were truly a significant help and so supportive. We truly could not have had this amazing wedding without the help of Amanda, Maggie and Kay. It was truly the wedding of our dreams, shout out to Regatta Place and the entire staff!

    Regatta Place's reply:

    Thank you Kathryn for choosing Regatta Place to host your special day and for sharing that gorgeous photo - stunning! Our team loved helping you plan your event and will be thrilled to hear we made your day unforgettable!

My husband and I photographed a wedding at The Regatta Place in May of 2011. Besides the bridal suite being absolutely gorgeous, the staff was incredibly attentive to every need of not only the bride, but the bridesmaids, her mother and father along with myself. They did the same with the groom, his groomsmen and my husband. Throughout the day, there was always someone present, calming the nerves of the bride and her family and they were exceptional with their service throughout the entire reception. We enjoyed working with the staff at The Regatta Place and would gladly accept the invitation to photograph a wedding there again. Exceptional service and care. We can't wait to go back!
