Three Unique Wedding Venues in Rhode Island

Dragonline Studios is a hidden gem and is not only a picture perfect location (stunning Narragansett Bay views, and sunset!), but the rental includes a stay on the property as well. Your ceremony backdrop is of the water views and you’re able to bring whatever vision to life because the property requires a tented reception - hello creativity fun! Along with the outside of the house being a great location for photos because of its unique architecture, the inside of the house brings great getting ready areas and spots for photos. If you’re looking for a Newport wedding venue, this Jamestown gem is where you should look!

Shepherd’s Run

A destination winery and resort is a beautiful location for any wedding, but the location of Shepherd’s Run makes it even more beautiful. Less than 30 minutes from historic Newport, the location could not be more perfect as it allows you to be outside the hustle and bustle but not too far away. Not only does Shepherd’s Run have beautifully crafted hotel rooms as part of their resort for your guests (and yourself!) to stay, but the wedding locations on the property cannot be beat. What is so unique about this property is that you’re able to host in various locations: your ceremony could be inside the Event Hall or Beatrix Farrand Garden, your cocktail hour on the Manor Terrace or Event Hall, and your reception in their signature sailcloth wedding tent or Event Hall. This Rhode Island venue offers so much for your guests and yourself for your wedding day!

When you think of Newport, RI I am sure you think of the historic town. What a better way to provide guests with a true Newport experience than to host your wedding day at Fort Adams State Park?

This venue offers stunning views of Narragansett Bay and the Newport Pell Bridge from either the North Lawn or West Lawn to host your reception or ceremony. The Casemates and Parade Field are inside the fort, where you can host either your ceremony, cocktail hour or reception. What is truly unique about this venue is being able to host in different locations for each part of your wedding day, while also having the best sunset view in all of Newport.
