01. Queen Anne’s Loft
First on the list is Queen Anne’s Loft! This venue is located in the historic downtown area of Newport. The Victorian architecture and design provides an upscale and elegant atmosphere. You and your wedding guests can take in the charming views of downtown through the large windows and french doors of the event space. This venue is better suited for more intimate weddings of 120 or less.
02. The Bayberry | Newport
Next up on my list of top Newport wedding venues is The Bayberry! This is a luxurious, boutique venue with both historic charm and modern conveniences. Your intimate wedding can take place out in the manicured gardens. Afterwards, guests can mingle in the spacious areas around the property, and then retreat to a luxurious suite inside the Inn.
03. Newport Vineyards
Newport Vineyards offers a unique wedding experience. Its rustic charm and natural romance make it the perfect pick for your wedding day! You can host your wedding day outdoors with romantic views of the vineyard and meadows, or indoors where you will find a warm and inviting atmosphere with romantic details at every turn. To celebrate your big day, toast a glass of one of the vineyard’s delicious wines.
04. Villa 120 at Hamilton Hoppin House
This gorgeous wedding venue has been fully restored to provide elegant, storybook weddings! With the amazing Newport scenery and unmatched ocean views, the Villa 120 at Hamilton Hoppin House mansion is one of the best venues in the area. The “Hamilton Hoppin House & Events make dreams come true!”
05. Linden Place
Number five on my list of best venues around Newport is Linden Place. This amazing location is full of American history, old and new world charm, stunning spaces, beautiful gardens, and grand mansion ballrooms. Linden Place has hosted four former presidents, as well as other famous faces throughout history. A Romantic garden surrounds the elegant mansion, making it the perfect spot to hold your wedding day!

The Blithewold Mansion, Gardens, and Arboretum is a gorgeous waterfront venue that provides epic views of the Narragansett Bay. Sitting on 33-acres, the wedding venue features lovely gardens, a stunning array of both beautiful and exotic plants, and charming architecture. The beautiful, natural scenery makes the former summer estate a wonderful wedding option in any season.
07. Edgewood Manor
Edgewood Manor is a stunning, luxurious wedding venue in Providence RI near Newport. This “historic Greek Revival mansion” provides an elegant setting and romantic atmosphere for your wedding day. This venue has a limited capacity of 75 people during the winter months for those more intimate affairs. However, in the summer months the capacity doubles to 150. You also have the option of both indoor and outdoor seating! For larger wedding parties, they do have an off site wedding venue, The Historic Abbey. This off site location holds up to 240 guests. Don’t forget to take in all the local sights and history that Providence has to offer!
08. Eisenhower House
Last on my list of Best Wedding venues in Newport RI, is the Eisenhower House. This venue was once a summer home to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. This lovely mansion features a wrap-around porch, perfect for viewing the sunset over the ocean as you take in the magnificent views of the Newport Bridge and Narragansett Bay. The venue hosts both indoor and outdoor options on their expansive property that accommodate up to 1,000 people, making it an ideal choice for those larger, grand weddings!
