Newport is a seaside city famous for its unique blend of picturesque charm and stately elegance. Located on Rhode Island, formerly Aquidneck Island, Newport has played an integral part in the nation’s history and is a wonderful place for couples to begin the next chapter of their lives together.

Wedding Venues in Newport

Since the Gilded Age, Newport has been a favorite retreat of the rich and famous. Industrialists and financiers built lavish summer residences on Bellevue Avenue, overlooking the sea. John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier were married in Newport, and Dwight D. Eisenhower summered at the Naval War College during his presidency. The city is also home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the National Sailing Hall of Fame, and it played host to the America’s Cup races from 1930 to 1983.

Today, Newport invites couples and their guests to experience its beauty and splendor for themselves. The city offers a variety of venues, perfectly suited to a range of needs and styles. Couples can celebrate in one of the city’s many historic buildings or enjoy a lovely outdoor wedding by the water. Venue rental costs vary by season. Options are available for around $2,000, though average costs are significantly higher and rental prices for some venues exceed $50,000. WeddingWire’s wedding planning tools give couples the resources they need to manage their budget.

Visitors traveling down from Boston or Providence can enter Newport via Jamestown or Middletown. The magnificent Claiborne Pell Bridge links Jamestown and Newport from the west. Visitors traveling south through Middletown can take the Sakonnet River Bridge from Tiverton or the Mount Hope Bridge from Bristol. The 64 bus connects the Kingston Railway Station to the Newport Gateway Visitor Center, and guests wishing to make part of their journey by rail can get to Kingston Railway Station via Boston.
