Newport is the perfect wedding destination for couples wishing to marry in a European castle without going to Europe. Newport offers the most glorious seaside mansions built primarily from imported materials by the very rich and famous. It also offers all the fun of a quaint New England seaport complete with the most up-to-date tourist amenities. The harbor makes one think of Venice and offers a variety of vessels on which to enjoy the sea.
The village offers wonderful shopping, diverse restaurants, and a multitude of wharf-side festivals. Tennis enthusiasts can be married at the Tennis Hall of Fame, and small groups might choose the cliff walk at sunset. Many couples opt for a traditional New England clambake, which can be as casual or elegant as desired.
Another advantage to choosing Newport is the visitor's center, which is by far one of the most informative tourism bureaus when it comes to wedding information. Guests can fly into Boston or Providence, RI to get to Newport.
