  • Selina was amazingly helpful! I was planning my wedding from afar, and she was so patient and responsive. Prices were perfect for my budget and reasonable for the area. Made my wedding perfect.

  • From where I was standing, and honestly it's hard to tell when you're the bride, our wedding day went by without any major hitch. We did hire an external coordinator because I honestly think Selina has too much to handle given the number of events that happen at the Dunes. She was very professional through the year-long stretch of planning despite minor miscommunications but response time started lagging a bit as we closed in on the wedding date and sometimes details fell through the cracks or were inconsistent. I'm generally a more critical person though and would say she did a solid job overall. We ultimately chose Newport Dunes for its unique view and the convenience factor. Doing the reception at the restaurant meant you don't need to worry about a separate catering vendor, the gazebo is a short walk from the restaurant, there's plenty of parking, and there are many hotels within a mile of the spot. As for cons: events can happen across the water and that noise carries like mad... Read more

  • I have to say the Venue was beautiful. There are quite a few venues there, we got married at the Gazebo. The planning and everything up to the wedding was great. Our planner Selina was great up to the event as well. She was very flexible and accommodating with us. We also had our rehearsal dinner at the Back Bay Bistro and the wedding was catered by them. We got many compliments on the food the day of the wedding. Once the wedding day came everything was set up and beautiful but things became a little bumpy. Unfortunately the venue did not pay as close attention to details on the day of as I did. Which is frustrating when you have done all of this planning and payed all of this money, you want everything perfect. The first glaring issue was we had ordered special table cloths for certain tables (head table, cake table, etc.). When they arrived no one bothered to iron them so they have fold lines all the way across our head table and are in every single picture of us. Which was extr... Read more

  • The Newport Dunes was great to work with, the only struggle we had was some of the responsiveness of the staff (before, during, but mainly after). We always received a response, but not always within what we felt was an adequate time. We might have been a little more demanding than some couples though, so take this criticism with a grain of salt. The biggest complaint was the follow up on some items left at the venue, we felt a little like once the checked was cashed, we were dismissed. One of the things that was very important to us was the quality of the food and reception. This is something that we cannot complain in the least about. The venue was very accomodating in our requests and even worked with us to develop a unique package based on some special requests. Including working within a budget, without making it seem like they skimped on anything. During our tasting the chef and our account rep were AMAZING! The food was equally amazing and many of our guests complimen... Read more

  • We had our event at Back Bay Bistro (the restaurant within Newport Dunes). The venue was absolutely gorgeous! The food was also very good, and I thought reasonably priced considering the location. However, the night of the event, there were WAY too many things that went wrong. There was theft by employees, meals were served wrong (including to the groom), they were not at all ready with tables set when guests were getting there and they argued with me (the bride) and also my mom. We will be meeting with them tomorrow to see how they plan to correct all these mistakes. I will update my review when I hear back from them.

  • The venue itself was beautiful! After reading many 5 star reviews on Rob the onsite coordinator I was pleased to have him assigned to us, however, he did not meet up to my expectations. Almost all of my other venders (wedding planner, flowers, band, photographer, videographer) said that he would never return their calls and he was no where to be found the day of my wedding. But overall, my guests had a blast and if you weren't privy to behind the scenes information you would never guess there were so many errors on behalf of the coordinator.

  • The original coordinator that I booked my wedding with was "no longer with the company" by the time the wedding came around, which was a little scary. However, another person stepped in and fulfilled all the promises the other had promised. She was very kind, when we finally got to speak with her. She threw in a whole bunch of stuff that the other coordinator was going to charge us for! There was a few things that got lost in translation. I had to remind her of what we had tasted, at the food tasting she was supposed to attend but had others help us with. Day of, things weren't set up like she had promised and my coordinator had to make the staff do the things we were promised, like tying napkin bows, etc. In fact, the staff delayed the wedding, as they were still setting tables as guests arrived and my friend had to go around tables, making sure everyone had spoons. However, the location was just what I wanted-a beach wedding, without strangers walking through it and gawking, ... Read more

  • Our wedding was very small and this was the perfect venue for it! Ive always dreamed about a beach wedding and this was just what I imagined. Great food, amazing atmosphere. They took care of everything. It was also the best deal we found. If you wish for a water front, candle light wedding, look no further.
