    The Most Beautiful Wedding!

    We absolutely loved our wedding at The Bohlin! Many of our guests commented that it was the best/most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. There was not a bite of food left on most of the dinner plates we saw, and everyone raved about the food. Their cocktail hour presentation was even adjusted to be more Covid-friendly and we felt very safe with their planning and preparation. The Bohlin staff were extremely professional, friendly, timely, and attentive, and everyone made sure my husband, our families, and I were taken care of with food, drink, and comfort throughout our event. We worked with Lauren to plan for our day, and she brought such a calm and professional presence to the planning process, and on our day she was an extremely attentive and helpful coordinator. Would recommend The Bohlin to everyone!!

    Our perfect oyster wedding

    The Bohlin was the perfect location to host our Newport oyster-themed coastal wedding! To be right next to the harbor, the boats, the sunset, the Newport bridge in the background, it was incredible. You are right in the heart of Newport! My now husband and I have vacationed in Newport for many years, and my family and I have been visiting this coastal town since I was a baby. It is our favorite place in the world. The Bohlin is the quintessential spot for that coastal vibe with casual class without being over the top stuffy and buttoned up as some other venues might give off. We had our wedding ceremony with the sailboats going by followed by our dockside cocktail hour with live music. It is so nice to have everything in one spot at the Bohlin, and the staff work hard to make the transitions between seamless for you and your guests.

    Our guests are still raving about the location, flow from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception, and they continue to compliment the efficiency and organization of the staff. We had a handful of guests with allergies and dietary restrictions. These guests said they have never been treated so well at any other wedding they have attended. The staff knew all of the allergies and all of the meal alterations needed for each guest. Food was brought out timely and efficiently and was absolutely delicious. From the cocktail hour passed hors d'oeuvres, to the overflowing raw bar, to the drinks, incredible entrees, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream bar, the Bohlin did not disappoint!

    My husband and I thought the cost at the Bohlin was extremely reasonable as the venue takes care of all of the food, tables, linens, and most of the decor. We chose from the simplest decor/linen/glassware/flatware package in terms of price and the look of the tables and tent were stunning. The beauty of the Bohlin tent is its simplicity. It is really a blank canvas so you can tailor it to your specific style and look for your wedding day.

    Our wedding day coordinator was reassigned a few months before the wedding which we were initially nervous about, but our new day of coordinator Lindsay Chapin blew it out of the water! She was absolutely incredible to work with and such a sweetheart. She was so responsive via email whenever we had the simplest question of clarification. We even scheduled a last minute in person meeting at the venue a few weeks prior to discuss layout and Covid matters, and Lindsay was always proactive and optimistic throughout it all. Obviously planning during Covid times was and still is challenging, but Lindsay and the Bohlin staff kept us up to date on all of the state and venue guidelines and restrictions on pretty much a weekly basis. The stars aligned for us in the end as the mask mandate and many other restrictions were lifted just days before the wedding! What an honor to host all of our friends and family as the world re-opened that week, and we are so thankful we chose the Bohlin to help us host all of them! Thank you to the Bohlin, to Lindsay, and to all of the hard working staff, from the bottom of our hearts for the most perfect wedding day! Book the Bohlin for your perfect Newport wedding! You won’t regret it!

    The best venue and team!

    (Sorry for the late review!)

    I don't even know where to start on how wonderful our wedding at The Bohlin was. It was everything I could have imagined for the perfect Newport wedding. The views were unbeatable, the location was perfect, the food was great, AND THE STAFF!

    I can't say it enough how amazing it was working with Lauren. My original venue cancelled on us 3 months out from our wedding and in a panic I had to book a new place. Luckily The Bohlin was available for the same date since I'd already booked all my other vendors. Lauren was so helpful and organized and had everything under control so I could relax. The day before the wedding, I thought we'd drop off all our decorations and such and have to spend some time setting up, but she shoo'd us away to go enjoy the night before our wedding and they took care of everything. It turned out beautiful! Everyone has said it was one of the best and most fun weddings they'd ever been to.

    Thank you!!!
