Name: Newport Yachting Center

Location: Newport, RI

Tell us a little bit about the history of the Newport Yachting Center Weddings & Private Events: Newport Harbor Corporation, which owns the Newport Yachting Center, Newport Restaurant Group, and Papa Razzi, was founded in 1925 as Newport Oil Corporation.  In 1979, as waterfront property was revalued in Newport, new uses for the property were considered, which led to what is known today as The Newport International Boat Show and the development of The Newport Yachting Center. From there, the company expanded and continued to grow to become a regional hospitality leader and one of the leading boat shows in the country. Newport Yachting Center continues to be waterfront destination for weddings, post-wedding brunches, rehearsal dinners, corporate gatherings, and more!

Describe the venue: The Newport Yachting Center Weddings and Private Events venue is located right in the heart of downtown Newport and is the perfect setting for a quintessential coastal wedding or private event. Our venue consists of a semi-permanent, beautiful, white tented structure adorned with white draping and ambient chandelier lighting and is available for events from May through October. Also, the tented space is accompanied by our private, open-aired patio with nautical teak furnishings. Together, these spaces offer classic Newport waterfront elegance with traditional New England charm.

What sort of events is it available for? We primarily host weddings.  However, we also host corporate events, rehearsal dinners, post-wedding brunches, fundraisers, social events, and much more!

Is there a favorite or historic event that they’ve hosted? As a backdrop to the Newport Yachting Center, the prestigious Newport International Boat Show (now it its 43rd year) takes over thirteen acres of Newport’s famed waterfront property with all makes and models of powerboats, sailboats, marine products, and more. We also host the Newport Charter Yacht Show, now in its fourth year, which showcases luxury yachts, services and ancillary goods. Both boat shows are historic, annual events with visitors traveling from all over to attend.

What makes it stand out as a venue? There are many features that make it stand out. Most notably, our picturesque location offers an unparalleled waterfront experience with breathtaking views of historic Newport Harbor, its majestic boats, and the iconic Newport Bridge. We’re located just steps from Newport’s famed cobblestone streets, lined with quaint shops, restaurants and galleries, not to mention an easy walk or shuttle ride from Newport’s vast array of inns and hotels. We’re also proud to offer the highest level of food and service provided by the Newport Restaurant Group for all of our private events’ catering needs. The Newport Restaurant Group includes some of Rhode Island’s most popular restaurants and provides the highest quality culinary experience with a creative, thoughtful, and responsible approaches in preparing each of our menus. Lastly, our venue offers a backdrop that is not only beautiful, but extremely versatile–allowing couples to put their own personal stamp on their wedding or special event.

Why is it important to Newport as a community? The Newport Yachting Center  Weddings & Private Events has long been a historical landmark in the city of Newport. As Newport continues to grow as a popular destination, the Newport Yachting Center continues to attract and drive revenue through hosting weddings and private events. We also provide many seasonal hospitality jobs through the events including our planning, culinary, and operations teams, etc.

Do you have any recommendations for brides that may be considering the venue? Don’t wait too long-our dates are moving quickly!  Reach out to our sales manager today to learn more about all the possibilities.

What is the business motto the Newport Yachting Center functions under? Each event is supported by our top-notch event planners who ensure every detail is discussed and seamless for the client. Our goal is to make every event a unique, waterfront experience.

Rustic Romance in Cape Cod

Jamie and Marcel’s love story began on the sands of the Jersey Shore, so it made sense that they would opt for a beach wedding. Marcel suggested Chatham Bars Inn and Jamie fell in love with the idea of a rustic beach wedding. Drawing inspiration from the store Anthropologie, Jamie sought out New England Country Rentals and Be Our Guest for mix-matched chairs, vintage love seats, and rustic crates to create her perfect setting. The color palette of peaches, pinks, and creams softened the vintage look of the rentals and added whimsical charm. SD Events made sure every detail of the day emulated Jamie’s vision of rustic romance.

Dressed to perfection, Jamie made her way down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown and met her soon-to-be-husband under a trellis of flowers. Guests enjoyed fresh oysters from the raw bar, mini lobster rolls,  and sipped on bellinis and Moscow mules while waiting for the bride and groom to make their debut. The Inn’s lawn was home to an oversized Sperry Tent where guests danced the night away under twinkling lights.
