Wedding events at the Newport Mansions

If you enjoy summer destinations and beautiful seaside celebrations, you must experience Newport and the Newport Mansions. Do you envision Gatsby-like dreaminess or Fairy-tale ballrooms?  The Newport Mansions will absolutely exceed your expectations.

Rosecliff is a stunning venue that reflects an exceptional era – and was the setting for the original Great Gatsby.  Your outdoor ceremony and reception surrounded by lush and impeccably manicured gardens with an ocean view will undoubtedly leave your guests speechless.

Plan your rehearsal dinner at the Marble House or The Chinese Tea House.  These historically significant architectural masterpieces are mere steps from the ocean and are the perfect location to kick off an inspiring weekend!

Bespoke Weddings

We can also plan a spectacular wedding celebration on the location of your choice that would allow you the privacy and creativity to design your own venue.  The Catered Affair is well versed in managing any property with local vendors to create spectacular welcome receptions, rehearsal dinners, custom wedding celebrations, and after-parties.

It’s all in the details

Once you have selected the venue or location, our team will plan every detail with you.  We will create floor plans, manage timelines and work closely with your vendors, so that you can relax and enjoy the experience as your vision comes to life.

We will create an exquisite menu that combines your passions and family traditions with seasonal and regional favorites.  The bar menu will also reflect your favorite signature cocktails and spirits with exceptional wines!

Whether your event is held at a national landmark, an historic mansion, or is a tented affair at a private residence, you can count on the Catered Affair to execute flawlessly.  Now in our 40th year of business, we have consistently created beautiful and memorable weddings for hundreds of brides and have served thousands of guests.  We would be honored to help you plan the wedding of your dreams.
