There are a couple of reasons why Newport is a great place to get married. For one, Newport boasts more than 40 miles of coastline, charming cobblestone streets peppered with mom-and-pop shops, critically acclaimed restaurants, tours on land and sea, miles of trails, windswept beaches, cozy inns, grand hotels, and a robust events calendar. Newport is also ideally situated to host weddings any time of year. While many know the “City by the Sea” as the summertime playground of the country’s elite, the most popular nuptial season may just be the fall, when the crisp salt water breezes keep the temperature cool, the treetops start to turn magnificent hues, and the city adopts a more leisurely pace.

Come winter, Newport exudes all of the charm of a Norman Rockwell painting with white lights illuminating homes, shops, restaurants, and the bustling wharves in a ritual meant to represent candlelight from days gone by. By spring, more than half a million daffodils bloom throughout the city, trumpeting the arrival of the season of new beginnings—an apropos symbol for couples starting their new lives together.
