  • After getting engaged, we were having a terrible time finding a venue! Originally my husband and I wanted to get married at the Tennis Hall of Fame but it was my dream to get married on the water. When looking at other venues in Newport, RI I fell head over heels in love with the Belle Mer Island House. Besides being completely beautiful and having an incredible view of the bridge and being RIGHT on the water, the venue is clean, well kept and well run. It even has a fire pit! The staff who work at Belle Mer bend over backwards to try to make you happy. Despite being out of town we visited the venue often and never once did I feel like we were overbearing. The food is delicious! We had such a great time selecting our food choices during the food tasting. We didn't love that we could only try a certain amount of food items unless we wanted to pay extra. As it turns out we ended up having to select some food items that we hadn't tried in advance because we wanted to switch out ... Read more

  • Our wedding at Belle Mer on September 1st was absolutely amazing! From the beginning of our booking, the administration has been extremely helpful and patient with us. Stephanie, our event specialist, was absolutely amazing every step of the way. She was professional, responds quickly, and extremely helpful throughout the planning period and she helped to make the process as smooth as possible. I would recommend Belle Mer as a venue to anyone who wants to get married on the water - the view is truly unbeatable!

  • Stephanie was such a patient and helpful coordinator. I am an out of town/ foreign bride, with totally different expectations for weddings. For one, where I am from we don't do first dances, speeches, etc. But my husbands' family wanted some of those formalities. Stephanie was able to explain to me how timelines typically work and how she would recommend merging our two expectations. I called her so many times and she patiently guided me through each of my questions. She also gave me awesome food and vendor recommendations! Multiple guests told me that it was the best food they have had at a wedding and that the service was spot on. (We had the filet mignon and halibut). During the wedding day, everything went completely smoothly. There were moments where I wished I had a little more guidance from my wedding attendant, but it wasn't a big deal. Having them basically took away the need to hire a wedding planner or day of coordinator, though I suspect it would have only been mo... Read more

  • What an incredible experience. Belle Mer beyond exceeded our expectations. We had such a fun and beautiful wedding. I decided not to hire a wedding planner, and I was only able to pull it off thanks to Stephanie Kennedy and the Belle Mer team. Everyone was extremely quick to respond and incredibly helpful. I did not have a single stressful moment on my big day, even without a planner, because they truly took care of everything. My vendors have all complimented Stephanie as well, and said that she was delightful to work with. The whole planning process was extremely well organized. The food was outstanding! My guests agree that this was the best wedding meal of all time. Our attendant Ivana was great too – she was always one step ahead of us. Thank you for the memories Belle Mer, we will cherish them forever!

  • I had my wedding at Belle Mer on June 23, 2019. This was the first choice I made in moving through the Wedding process and I am so happy that I did! It was simply above and beyond!! Stephanie, our wedding coordinator, could not have been more fantastic. She was always quick to respond to any questions, extremely helpful and accomodating, incredibly efficient and always made things as easy as possible for me and for my mom. She was kind, patient and just overall did a phenomenal job assisting us in making this the most special, amazing day we have ever experienced. The day of, Chelsea, our day of attendant, and Stephanie were on top of everything. We had hors d'oeuvres brought over to the bridal party through photo shoots, there was always a drink in mine and Albert's hand, every moment was well coordinated and perfectly executed. The staff was fantastic. Our bartenders, Josh and Danielle were awesome and so accomodating!! The food was delicious. I think at one point I ate 4 tuna tartar... Read more

  • I wish I could do it all over again - I would change nothing. As my husband and I were standing there being pronounced as husband and wife, I thought about how lucky I was not just to be marrying the love of my life, but that I was able to do it in such a gorgeous place... knowing everything was taken care of.... and that all I had to do was sit back and take it all in. Stephanie Kennedy was our planner and she went above and beyond for our big day. We cannot even begin to imagine a day better than the one we had. From the staff, to the food (which EVERYONE raved about), to the tiny details.... it was amazing. Highly recommend this venue... they truly thought of everything and kept it all so organized so we could focus on our big day and enjoy it. I hope to get invited to another wedding at Belle Mer so I can enjoy it all again.

  • Perfect location, great food and excellent service. My daughter in law is a wedding planner in Wilmington, NC and manage to work with the staff at Belle Mer remotely with no issues at all. From her perspective, the venue's standard package was extensive and good quality - i.e. nice chairs, tables, silverware, table clothes, etc. It was a wide open room with floor to ceiling doors that could be opened to bring the outside in. There was very little she had to upgrade. As part of the package, you get a room for the bride to get ready and is yours all night long. It is a huge space on the second floor overlooking the outdoor ceremony area. In our case, the entire wedding party met, took some pictures, relaxed before the event started. We then returned to the space, had a drink and hor d'ouevres before joining the cocktail hour. A person is assigned to the bride for the entire time so anything she needed was taken care of. There were two event spaces but they don't overlap at all. Th... Read more

  • We chose Belle Mer for our wedding venue and it was everything we could have ever wanted and more. Everything was absolute perfection. First, the food is amazing! We got countless compliments on the food. Next, the service we received during the planning process and on the day of our wedding was exceptional. Megan took over as our coordinator approx. 6 months before our wedding because our other coordinator left. She was absolutely amazing and made the transition so seamless for us. She quickly got up to speed on everything and she really went above and beyond during the planning process and the day of the wedding. She was AMAZING! We were in the Island House for our wedding and it was so beautiful. We had our ceremony on the Island House lawn and the scenery is just breathtaking. We got lucky with the weather to be able to open the doors/windows of the Island House for the reception and it really was amazing. We received so many compliments on the location and the service from our ... Read more

  • Belle Mer was the most amazing venue – from the location, the view, the ceremony space, to the food, and to the service. Belle Mer was an overwhelmingly amazing experience. The service we received from our initial tour all the way through our wedding night was top notch. Stephanie made me feel so comfortable and confident leading up to the big day, and was always so helpful in answering any questions I had as quickly as possible. Even knowing how great Belle Mer was, I was still floored by how amazing the service was on the wedding day. From the moment I arrived on-site, the venue was decorated exactly as I envisioned, the bridal suite was stocked with beverages and a free pair of flip flops for my dancing feet, a bridal attendant followed us the whole night bringing us drinks and food. I truly felt like a princess. The Belle Mer team even packed up everything we brought (decorations and all) and loaded it into my parent’s cars as the night was ending. I think the key moment that e... Read more

  • We recently got married at the Island House in September and couldn't have been happier with our choice. After visiting a few other venues in Newport, we knew Belle Mer was the one the second we walked through the front gates. The venue, the views and the grounds are simply stunning and their food is absolutely delicious. Their chef was also very accommodating and worked with us to create a meal that suited our taste and style. Although I wouldn't wish rain upon anyone on their wedding day, we were the “lucky” couple who had a storm hit just minutes before our guests arrived for our outdoor ceremony. I must say this is where Belle Mer really impressed me. Regardless of the ceremony already being set up outside (and the inside already set up for the reception) the staff quickly and seamlessly transformed the inside into a beautiful ceremony spot. While we knew this would be the backup plan, I was shocked at how smoothly it all went. In a matter of 8 minutes, the inside was perfe... Read more
