Are you a sophisticated society-style bride who dreams of an intimate wedding with classic elegance?  The Chanler at Cliff Walk is an elegant historic mansion turned hotel where you will experience the very best of luxury and service.  This is the perfect place for a wedding for 80 or fewer guests.  Nick Vitale takes us for a tour of the romantic gardens and the beautiful rooms that are individually styled.  Customized gourmet cuisine from the Spiced Pear, one of the area’s most acclaimed restaurants, makes an ideal choice for romantic dinners, sunset views and private events.  Hear co-hosts Holli & Robert share their wonderful culinary experience firsthand.

Are you a chic modern bride who desires a look all your own?  Belle Mer, Newport’s scenic boutique event venue located on Goat Island, has combined Newport’s timeless style with the contemporary energy and understated glamour for which Longwood Events is well-known.  Belle Mer is New England’s only independent event company to offer a palette of natural tones and whites as the backdrop for your celebration.  Offering 14,000 square feet of indoor function space, combined with six acres of outdoor terraces on the edge of Narragansett Bay, Belle Mer allows for casual or elegant gatherings for any size group.  Their resourceful team of designers, planners, chefs and event managers tend to every detail of your affair.
