  • Glen Manor is, simply put, absolute perfection in a wedding venue. Every part of the property is stunning - the garden, the view, the House itself, the bridal suite and, perhaps most importantly, Katie is absolute dream to work with. We booked Glen Manor 19 months before our wedding and well before the pandemic hit, so we went through numerous iterations for how the day would look, starting with a 150-person event, then just planning a small intimate ceremony in the space, and finally going through with a 30-person ceremony and reception at Glen Manor. I have no doubt that all of those possible plans would have been beautiful at the Glen, and Katie worked with tirelessly and patiently with us through each iteration of our plans. On our wedding day Glen Manor was beyond stunning and it felt perfect for our 30 person event. The House felt warm, inviting, intimate, and in many ways it felt like we were hosting a wedding at our home (one can dream!) because Katie made us and our guest... Read more

  • Glen Manor was an incredible venue. My in-laws had gotten married there 30 years ago, so it was so special for me and my partner to get married in the same place. Katie was amazing to work with, and the house was extraordinary. Guests couldn't get over how beautiful it was, and are still talking about it. We got married in November and it was freezing, but the house felt warm, inviting, and so, so special. Our cocktail hour (before the ceremony) started right at sunset, and guests pulled up to see the house glowing with candles. Because of the weather, we didn't use the grounds except for some photos of the two of us, but the landscaping looked amazing, even at the time of year. It is obvious that Katie and Don care so deeply about the property and ensuring that those lucky enough to get married there have a wonderful experience. 10/10.

  • We feel as though we made many correct decisions when it came to our wedding day and choosing Glen Manor was one of them. The Manor is beautiful, great history, elegance and many available options for what you can do, no matter the size or formality of your wedding. With it being just outside of Newport in Portsmouth, I feel many people overlook it but that should not be the case, it has stunning water views, lush gardens, inside and outdoor space which is needed with RI weather and the separate ballroom in my opinion is a bonus because it gets people up out of their seats! Katie was amazing as well, she was super responsive and very helpful in guiding us through every step.

  • My husband and I couldn't have picked a better, more perfect location if we tried. Katie was so wonderful to work with, and helped to make our special day seamless. It was great to have the entire house and grounds to ourselves, and to not have to worry about sharing the space with another wedding or event happening at the same time. The view of the Sakonnet River was breathtaking, and wow-ed all of our guests. The house itself is stunning, and so elegant. It was the perfect fit for the classic wedding we were aiming for. Honestly, the best venue ever.

  • Choosing the Glen Manor House was the best decision we ever could have made. We were planning our wedding from Arizona and relied on a lot of our vendors to help guide us with the right direction for our special wedding day. Katie was always very responsive with all of our questions and she was incredibly helpful. The Glen Manor is such a special place to us and our family and friends. Since the wedding we have received many compliments that it was the most beautiful venue that they have ever been to. The entire process was a dream and I can't thank Katie and her team enough for all their hard work!

  • After scouting numerous venues in Rhode Island, I knew this was the one the second I walked in (even in the dead of winter). In speaking to Katie, I immediately felt comfortable and knew this was the venue for my June wedding. Throughout our planning process, Katie was an invaluable resource who quickly became a favorite vendor! The Glen Manor House is such a hidden gem, our guests were in awe of the gardens, water views and building itself. I loved the indoor/outdoor dining seating as well as the separate ballroom for dancing. The venue itself can be customized so many ways with decor, it felt like the possibilities were endless! I am so happy we chose Glen Manor House, I would highly recommend it!

  • Get married here!! absolutely gorgeous and elegant, yet non-pretentious feeling venue. We got married in May and the landscaping was breathtaking; our photos were unbelievable. Flowers in full bloom and just warm enough for indoor/outdoor wedding. Love the easy access to the grounds (water, gardens). If you want to step away from the crowd during the reception to get some air, you can just take a walk outside without feeling completely removed from the action, which makes it very comfortable for guests that are introverted or don’t know many people at the wedding. Katie is absolutely amazing. She made sure everything ran smoothly, kept me relaxed, and she is ALL over every detail before you even think of it. She anticipates your needs throughout the planning process as well as the day of, which you need on your wedding day since there will inevitably be chaos that will happen no matter how much you plan. Only criticism I’d say is it may be a bit warm to get married here mid summ... Read more

  • Glen Manor is absolutely gorgeous! If you're looking for an elegant, outdoor (with indoor/outdoor patio option in case it rains), scenic, waterfront and historic venue, this is the perfect place. It's a great location for both intimate and large weddings. I had a small intimate wedding (around 60 guests) and the venue was just right for the size. Katie, the venue coordinator, was a great person to work with. She is responsive and on the day of, worked well with our caterer/event coordinator (Russell Morin) and other vendors seamlessly. All of our vendors love working with Katie and praised her professionalism.

  • It is hard to say something about this beautiful place that hasn't already been said, but I am more than happy to share our experience. My mom booked this venue for our wedding after meeting Katie and touring the grounds, my husband and I didn't even seen it in person until a week before our wedding! We were blown away, it is beautiful in photos, but even more stunning in person. Katie took the time to meet with us before our event and give us a tour since we had never visited the Glen before. She answered all of our questions and gave us great last minute advice on our timing, set up, and rehearsal day instructions. The venue is stunning, but Katie is the true gem-- she will not lead you astray and if you follow her advice, you will enjoy a truly spectacular wedding. When our wedding party showed up for the rehearsal they were also struck by how beautiful the space was! We had an outdoor wedding, and outdoor cocktail hour, followed by a seated dinner and dancing inside. Unfortunately ... Read more

  • Glen Manor was an amazing venue for our wedding and reception. It is gorgeous. It’s right next to the water, has a stunning garden, and the inside is perfect for a wedding anywhere from 100-200 people. Katie was IMMENSELY helpful and always had answers to our questions. She had everything under control on the big day and it went off without a hitch. Everything was perfectly coordinated. We highly recommend Glen Manor!

  • We fell in love with this venue the first time we visited during the wedding planning stage. The Glen's elegance and its location by the water appealed to us the most, and the price was within our budget (unlike some much more expensive venues further south). Katie, the event coordinator was definitely one of the best parts about it--she was very responsive to phone calls and email during the planning process, she answered all of our questions, and she made sure there were no loose ends. We especially appreciated that she was detailed-oriented and calm in the days and hours leading up to the wedding; it really put us at ease. Our ceremony was onsite, so the entire wedding party was able to get ready and take photos at the Manor within the 3 hours prior to the ceremony. Although our wedding took place at the end of October, the weather and grounds were GORGEOUS, and our photos really reflected that. We originally opted for an indoor ceremony, and Katie gave us day of flexibility to d... Read more

  • With views overlooking the waters and beautifully manicured grounds that flow with the season, Glen Manor is simple, elegant, and perfect when it comes to showcasing to friends and family what a wedding in Rhode Island is all about. With the benevolent Katie as the manager of the property and guide throughout the process, even on the day of our wedding, always attentive to our needs, even those of friends, family, and our vendors, answering questions at a moment’s notice, we were given an empty canvas to build and plan upon our dream wedding. What we loved about Glen Manor was not only its charm but amenities offered with consideration of inclement weather. Plenty of space to enjoy with separation between the dining and reception area, all while having an outdoor covered area to lounge. Something to keep in mind when it comes to the number of guests you’re planning all while considerate of potentially having an indoor wedding. Three hours in advance to get ready, plenty of time...

  • We recently had our wedding at the Glen and it couldn't have been nicer. Not only is the building and setting beautiful and elegant, but its very quiet and private. We worked with Katie who was wonderful to us. Very responsive but very laid back and she really just takes care of everything for you. She has a very calming effect which I appreciated. All our guests were impressed by the space and we had a blast. Go for the glen!

  • The wedding coordinator, Katie Wilkinson, at Glen Manor House is phenomenal. She is organized, friendly, and punctual. I could tell she truly enjoys hosting weddings! The Glen Manor House is a beautiful venue that speaks for itself once you visit. It is truly a hidden gem and is a wonderful alternative to the Newport Mansions. Although, as beautiful as a venue can be, things can still go astray if you don't have the right coordinator. Katie made our day go smooth without any hiccups. She maintained contact with the vendors throughout the planning period to make sure our vision was created just as we had imagined. I cannot thank Katie enough for all her help. Her relaxing presence can put any bride at ease as the small details are safe in her hands!
