Venue Spotlight | Aldrich Mansion

The Venue Spotlight Series

Over the past few years we’ve photographed a lot of wedding venues. Like, a lot of venues. We thought that we’d bring something a little different to the blog to highlight some of these wonderful spaces. In the coming months, we’ll feature some helpful information and beautiful photos and videos of wedding venues around Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut that you are going to absolutely love. So, without further ado, here’s the next edition of our venue spotlight series: Aldrich Mansion!

 

Aldrich Mansion

Aldrich Mansion is a stunning French chateau overlooking Narragansett Bay. The entire mansion is a work of art.  Everywhere you look there is pristinely preserved polished stone and murals on the ceiling. It’s luxurious and lovely. Located on Warwick Neck, the mansion is tucked away from the traffic of Newport or Providence. We’ve worked with Tony, the event coordinator at Aldrich Mansion for many years… and we love him! You couldn’t be in better hands than Tony and the rest of the staff. They are the best at what they do.

 

Some details about the space: there are multiple dining rooms that you can combine to seat up to 230 guests. There’s a gorgeous library that can host cocktail hour or serve as an awesome backdrop for photos.  The most gorgeous landscaping you can imagine surrounds a huge multi-level patio overlooking the water. We’ve seen that patio used for cocktail hour or for formal dances and speeches. Here’s another fabulous amenity: on on-site chapel is available for Catholic ceremonies. Because there’s so many flexible spaces on the property, you can really customize it to your own needs, making this the perfect Rhode Island wedding location.

 

If you’re getting married, Aldrich Mansion should definitely be on your list of venues to check out. Below is an aerial video of the outside of of the property along with some photo highlights from a few weddings that we’ve shot there. Be sure to check it all out!

We thought that we’d bring something a little different to the blog to highlight some of these wonderful spaces. In the coming months, we’ll feature some helpful information and beautiful photos and videos of wedding venues around Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut that you are going to absolutely love.

Belle Mer

 

Many of the brides that we work with want a reception venue that they can put their mark on. Something stylish and beautiful where they can really let their own style really shine. There are few venues that fit this bill better then Belle Mer.  Situated on Goat Island, and close to all the amenities and sights of historic downtown Newport, Belle Mer couldn’t be in a better location. It’s a pristine, modern venue. The simple, neutral color scheme allows you to go wild with flowers and color schemes! While the walls and decor remains neutral in color, it’s anything but boring. With crystal chandeliers, billowy white curtains, and sliding glass walls, we know you’ll fall in love. Whether you want to go for a rustic, barefoot, bohemian look or have a black tie formal affair, this space is perfect.

They have several options for ceremony and reception locations. The Water Salon offers not one, but two gorgeous fireplaces. The Island House features a stunning view of the Newport bridge. The Ocean lawn can serve as a lovely outdoor ceremony location, a cocktail hour spot with lawn games, or even a post-reception lounge spot by the fire pit. The Loft is a perfect location to serve as a stylish bridal suite or to host an unforgettable rehearsal dinner. Belle Mer is a truly dynamic venue.

The property is managed by Longwood Events. Their salespersons and event staff are the most experienced around. They are truly a joy to work with. They also offer some amazing extras, like a fleet of unique boats for cocktail party or a sunset sail after the wedding of your dreams!

Check out some photos of the gorgeous Belle Mer below! Want to see more photos and video? Be sure to check out our other blog posts: Christina & Tom | Jamie & Corey | Jayna & Sam | Laura & Ben | Allison & Evan |  Satta & Kyle | Jessica & Christian

Mount Hope Farm

 

Mount Hope Farm is truly a jewel of the East Bay. It’s a historic country estate set right on the Narragansett Bay with unbeatable views of the Mount Hope Bridge. There’s so much on this property to see – the working farm complete with goats and chickens, a stunning flower cutting garden, and miles of trails through the picturesque woods. On top of all of that, there’s not one, but two amazing location choices to hold your wedding or event. The first is the barn. It’s rustic and has an enormous working stone fireplace. Cozy and perfect. The second location is the Cove Cabin. The cabin is set deeper on the property and overlooks the lovely Mount Hope Bridge. If you’re looking for that New England seaside charm, with some rustic character, look no further.

 

Another unbeatable feature of this property is the accessibility. There’s a charming year round farmer’s market in the barn if you want to check it out with out committing to a full tour. The trails are also open to the public and are pet-friendly. It’s also an unbeatable spot if you’re just looking for an awesome engagement session location. Did we mention the location? It’s just minutes from the conveniences and charm of downtown Bristol. There’s a number of lovely churches to host a ceremony nearby. Bristol’s bustling small business scene also makes it a great spot for accommodations for your out-of-town guests or to find a salon with a bridal suite. Catering at the farm is provided exclusively by Russell Morin Fine Catering. They will make sure that you have an unparalleled event.

OceanCliff

 

OceanCliff is the quintessential Newport wedding venue. Why? It’s that gorgeous ocean view, of course! The sweeping views of Narragansett bay and the Newport Bridge bring people from all around New England to visit and get married here. There’s just so much to love – the wedding arbor that overlooks the bay, the artfully manicured grounds, the historic buildings. We could go on for paragraphs about OceanCliff weddings. But, the best thing by far, though, is the staff. From the amazing, knowledgable sales managers to the banquet captains and servers, we’ve never had anything but great experiences at OceanCliff.

 

OceanCliff has great options for ceremonies on site – both indoor and outdoor. If you prefer a church ceremony, though, Newport has a number of beautiful, historic church within close driving distance.The area surrounding OceanCliff is awesome too. The property is close to the Fort Adams, Brenton Point, and the Castle Hill Lighthouse. On top of all that, The Newport Experience was some really cool options to add to your wedding experience. Want to go for a sunset sail on your wedding day? They have the Schooner Aurora.

 

We could go on, but we’ll let the photos and videos speak for themselves. Be sure to check out the aerial video and wedding highlights below! Want to see even more photos from real weddings? Check out a few of our OceanCliff weddings here:
