  • Our wedding at the Bohlin was absolutely incredible. We changed our venue to the Bohlin just months before our date due to COVID, and from day 1 it was a great experience. Maria was so helpful leading up to the day and was amazing the day of the wedding. She is so organized and handled all of the details to make sure our day was perfect. The venue was gorgeous, the food was great, and the service was top notch. We can’t recommend the Bohlin highly enough!!

  • I can’t rave enough about how amazing it was to have our wedding at The Bohlin. If you are looking for a venue the encompasses all that Newport is this is your spot. You are right downtown and right on the water with the most beautiful Sperry tent- it’s truly spectacular. We had both our ceremony and wedding here and it was the best day our lives and I would not change one thing. Our wedding pictures are amazing because the views you get with this venue are on another level. We worked directly with Sara when planning our wedding and she was amazing. She is so organized and so much fun to work with! I was always so excited when we had meetings with her. She kept us organized and so excited during the whole planning process. We never had to worry about a thing day of- she was on site and taking care of everything and anything behind the scenes. She was so great during our rehearsal day as well, getting it done fast and productively. Sara was such a big part of our wedding being as... Read more

  • I truly cannot say enough great things about The Bohlin. We had our absolute dream wedding there this past October, and the team at The Bohlin was amazing to work with, beginning to end. Sara was our event manager, and her patience, responsiveness, and expertise are just a few things on the long list of reasons she was incredible to work with! She made our dream wedding a reality, and really is the best in the business! Everything was absolutely perfect - the decorations/set-up, the food, the service, and everything in between! It also goes without saying that the location is to die for - right on the water at the Newport Yachting Center, which happens to be in the heart of downtown Newport! We couldn't have imagined a more perfect day. We will always cherish the memories made, and we give Sara and her team so much credit for making them happen. I could go on and on, but the point is that I really could not recommend any venue more highly!!!

  • We absolutely loved this venue. Affordable elegance in the Newport area. The staff were attentive to every detail and the food was fantastic. All of our guests had a great time and thought it was one of the most beautiful venues they have ever been to.

  • The entire experience from start to finish was amazing. Every detail was impeccably dealt with and the staff was first rate. Our planner at the Bohlin, Sara Leonard, was perfect and took care of every detail in advance right up until the ceremony. From there, the amazing staff took over and produced, according to many guests, "the best wedding they have ever attended". The food was amazing and the presentation and service equally perfect. I could not have wished more for our daughter and our new son in law.

  • The Bohlin was the perfect venue for our June wedding! When we first started the wedding planning process, we knew we wanted our venue to be in Newport and we wanted it to be as inclusive as possible so that we would not have to worry about hiring catering or rental vendors. As soon as we arrived for our site visit at the Bohlin, we knew it was the place for us and it did not disappoint. Our wedding coordinator was Sara, and she was amazing throughout the whole process. She walked us through everything while we were planning, was incredibly responsible to any emails we sent to her (even for very small questions), coordinated with our vendors so we didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day, and was extremely flexible and accommodating on the day of our wedding. The venue staff was wonderful and created the perfect day for us. They provided excellent service throughout the night, and my husband and I had an attendant available to us to make sure we had everything we ... Read more

  • When my husband and I first got engaged, we knew we wanted to be in Newport. I am originally from MA and my husband is originally from CT. Newport was going to be absolutely the perfect place for our May wedding. When we first started looking the had just started the renovations on the venue. I walked onto the site and there was nothing there and I knew then that I wanted to be married there. I could never have imaged what the final product would look like. I was absolutely amazed at how beautifully stunning the venue looked when it was completed. My husband and I knew it was going to be beautiful just from the location, but the details that went into completing the venue make it the perfect location for any type of wedding. Our wedding planner Sara, was absolutely positively 100% amazing. From the beginning she was right there helping us plan our day. She walked us through everything as we were planning, from the small to the big. She was very responsive to emails and hel... Read more

  • We booked the Newport Yachting Center back in May and I could not be happier. Ashlee has been a pleasure to work with. She provided in site on local vendors, hotels and a place for a rehearsal dinner. It is so refreshing to work with such a pleasant person during this hectic time! She has also let my Fiance and I come and view the venue when and actual wedding is set up which is so nice because I was able to plan how I wanted to start setting up on my wedding day. The venue itself is beautiful. I love how it is tucked away from the downtown craziness but it is still so close to local bars, restaurants and hotels. I also love how the venue is so simple and beautiful. You can customize it however you would like. So refreshing compared to a basic banquet room with those ugly rugs ;). I fell in love with the outside patio that overlooks the water. I could go on and on but I HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking your wedding at the Newport Yachting Center. You will NOT regret it :) Can not wait t... Read more

  • My husband and I are so happy we chose to have our wedding at The Bohlin! We truly wouldn't change a thing and have heard over and over from friends and family that our wedding was the most fun and beautiful they've ever been to. I could go on and on about each individual thing that was wonderful. We especially are thankful to have worked with Sara Leonard, she was incredible.

  • I recently had my wedding at the bohlin and it was more beautiful and perfect than I could have imagined. Sara was our event manager and was amazing throughout the whole planning process. She met with me to plan the entire wedding day from linens, china, meals, cake, decor, etc and was beyond helpful in making these important decisions. When the wedding weekend came, I had many details and items I wanted to provide and Sara was flexible to meet me and go through all my details. On our wedding day she made everything perfect and more beautiful than we could have dreamed. Our guests are still making comments after the wedding about how gorgeous the bohlin venue is from the beautiful sperry tent and views of Newport harbor to how delicious the food was and how amazing and accommodating the staff was. We can't thank Sara and the bohlin enough for our perfect wedding!

  • We knew this venue was for us the moment we saw it. The tent was even half taken down and it was pouring. Sara our event manager was the absolute best! From the details meeting to dealing with my daily emails asking questions she was so professional and helpful. She really made our dreams come true on the wedding day. We could not believe the transformation of the venue with the new ceremony site, pavers, tent, bathrooms, and amenities it had to offer. We were so beyond pleased with every single thing. We had so many detail items to be set-up and Sara set everything up more beautifully than we could have imagined. We do not have a single complaint about the process or wedding day, I wish we could enjoy that day again and again it was so perfect. We came in to the ceremony by boat and Sara was able to coordinate and change up our ceremony to accommodate all of our crazy ideas. Special thanks to the bar staff, marina staff, and set-up staff as well! Guests are still talking about how a... Read more

  • Sara & her team were amazing. In the end, we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The location was perfect. Without Sara, we would have been lost. We did appreciate her working through every detail with us. The only reason we gave the venue 4/5 stars was because since it's in a prime location, you do get nickled and dimed for everything; parking included.

  • Having our wedding here was a wonderful experience. The wedding coordinators were very friendly and informative. They provided us with a quick breakdown of cost to meet our budget. Some things got lost in translation as the months passed but they were flexible to work with us. Maura, our initial consultant, was great and friendly. She gave us a vision of our wedding day and was flexible to meet us at any time for a tour. This was extremely helpful since we are not from Newport. Sara, our wedding coordinator, was wonderful and very responsive. She always had a smile on her face and was willing to work with us. Wedding season can be very hectic for any wedding vendor, so she tried to get as much done as possible prior to May. Weddings have the potential to be very costly and vendors tend to charge for every little thing. My advice to brides is to feel comfortable about voicing their concerns and what’s important for them to spend their money on. The Bohlin was very flexible with th... Read more

  • The Bohlin at the Newport Yachting Center was the most MAGICAL place to have a wedding. We could not have asked for a more gorgeous venue or ambiance to celebrate with friends and family. Sara, our wedding coordinator, was perfection and helped us with every step along the way. She was flexible, knowledgable and energetic. The tent was perfect, and having boat horns honk as we kissed was so memorable! All food, drink and service was impeccable and it is a beautiful venue for pictures. So many components were included, which helped to make planning much easier. Thank you to the Bohlin for making our big day so special!
