Wedding Planning

Experience Your Dream….the experience you’ve been waiting for all your life.

Newport is the most Wedding Friendly City in New England. Imagine your reception in a grand Newport mansion and your ceremony with the Atlantic Ocean as your backdrop. It can happen… and it is all right here.

The Architect’s Inn- George Champlin Mason House can host small weddings here at the Inn. Rent the whole Inn for your wedding. If the Inn isn’t big enough, we can recommend other inns or B&B’s around the corner. No one needs to worry about driving or parking. Our Inn is so centrally located that you can walk to almost anywhere from here. We have recommendations for Photographers, Cake Decorators, Wedding Planners, Make-Up and Hair, Caterers and Venue Managers.

If you have a wedding that is mid-large size, then we have several reception locations within walking distance including the Chanler at Cliff Walk, the Tennis Hall of Fame, the Newport Elks Lodge, the Newport Art Museum, Forty North, the Redwood Library, the Marriott, Easton’s Beach Rotunda, Newport Yacht Club, Atlantic Beach Club, Newport Hotel and Suites, Newport Harbor Hotel, Hotel Viking, and many more.

Also a very short taxi ride away is Rosecliff, Castle Hill, Oceancliff, Belcourt Castle, Beechwood Mansion, Glen Manor, Hyatt Hotel and Belle Mer. You can rent the entire Architect’s Inn for theWedding Party or perhaps a family group travelling from overseas.

Most Inns will not accept wedding groups, but we do, providing that you rent the whole Inn. Your wedding guests are always welcome, anytime. Bookmark the Architect’s Inn on your wedding page so we can help them find accommodations.

Bachelor and Bachelorette Weekends are also welcome. Bring a group of friends to enjoy the wonderful nightlife of Thames Street. Charter a boat and sail under the Newport Bridge. Rent a limousine from Rock Star Limo; have your own mobile party bus and go pub crawling. Or plan a relaxed weekend of mansion tours, wine tastings and sunset sails.
