To say everything and everybody was perfect is an understatement. We got married in the Water Salon on 5/20/17. From the beginning, all employees went above and beyond. Our initial tour with Steven was fantastic and he continued to keep in touch throughout the whole process. He is amazing and made us feel at home from day 1! Abigail is a saving grace and we called her our angel throughout this whole process. From day 1 she was extremely helpful, always there to answer our questions and keeping us on track and organized. It is extremely overwhelming to plan a wedding (especially since we had no idea what we were doing) and she was there every step of the way. We honestly could not have done it without her and her guidance. Brianne, the day coordinator was fantastic and she ensured the day was seamless and everybody we talked to rave about the wedding and how perfect the flow was. She had everything set and even put an extra pair of flip flops at my seat and my favorite drink. During photos, she was there with drinks and appetizers..she was seriously a godsend. The waitstaff was incredible and all of our guests were RAVING about them. They were so professional and social they were honestly fantastic. Perfection!

We recently had our wedding at the Belle Mer in Newport and every step along the way was perfect. Stephanie Donofrio was our main contact, she was incredibly responsive and accommodating. The location is stunning and the food was delicious ! The service of the wait staff during the reception was perfection. The Belle Mer worked beautifully with all of my vendor, my wedding planner, florist, music groups and rental companies. I'm an interior designer from California and so planning my wedding from across the country could have been very difficult but Longwood Properties made sure everything went smoothly, so I could relax and enjoy the day ! They truly deserve 5 stars !

From food, drinks, and location, you can't go wrong with this Miami-esque appeal of a venue in a classic Newport, harbor/marina setting. We were married 8-18-2017 at Belle Mer (Island House). We had a deposit at another venue in Newport, and after seeing and working with the staff at Belle Mer, we immediately changed to Belle Mer. Hands down, some of the best staff, clean and well kept facilities. The food was outstanding, with perfectly cooked meets, large portions sizes, and perfect presentations of the food. Top Shelf liquor (one reasonable set price) - need I say more. When they present the food, the entire table is served at once by all the servers, so there's no waiting for that last person to get their food. Not many people picked up on this though. We worked with Stephen James and Abigail throughout most of our planning, and both were amazing. We were difficult at times, but they never cracked! They kept professional and made sure everything was perfect for us. Their communication was on par, and never had to chase around trying to contact them. On the day of the wedding, our bridal attendant was with us to make sure everything ran perfectly. We were able to eat, enjoy hors d'oeuvres, and socialize with our guests during cocktail hour, because of their precise planning. We have nothing bad to say about this venue... and may I add, that it monsoon-ed on our wedding day, and yet, everything still came out perfectly even though we weren't able to utilize their outside grounds.

We celebrated our wedding in April at the Island House and we cannot say enough good things about the team at Belle Mer. First off, the venue is stunning. We spent very little time/money on decorations (other than flowers) because the venue itself is so beautiful. We had our ceremony indoors and the huge windows were the perfect backdrop and made for some beautiful photos. The food and the service are both 5 star. The portions were huge and so many of our guests raved about their dinner. Our event coordinator, Sarah, was a dream to work with! I felt at ease on our wedding day knowing that she was in control. Our bridal attendants were also amazing! Our wedding day was everything we dreamed and we had such a great experience working with Belle Mer!

The venue, location, food, staff, service are all AMAZING! We used the Salon for the ceremony & the Island House for the reception & both are gorgeous! The Island House has to be seen in person, the pictures don't do it justice. Directly on the water, beautiful views of the sunset & the Newport bridge lit up at night, & floor to ceiling glass doors to view it all from. Plus they have fire pits which was an awesome touch (especially during the winter & snow flurries!) Right from the start we were blown away by the treatment and kindness of everyone we worked with. We did a winter wedding to save some money & we were not treated any differently for a smaller budget then what they are used to at this venue. They were so accommodating & helpful in keeping our budget in mind & didn't push anything on us. The wedding was perfect! The staff set up the reception tables beautifully with only a couple directions from me (they did even better then what i had in mind). Our bridal attendant was there all day for anything we needed. We were told exactly where to go & when & there was always someone around for help. The food service is outstanding as well as the food. And the venue is within walking distance to a hotel! HIGHLY recommend this venue anytime of the year!

This place captured our hearts the second we walked into it and I had to reserve it that day! It is a beautifully white blank canvas. This venue came with a wide array of perks. Some of the things included are, food, tables and chairs, servers, bar, bartenders, and most importantly, the venue comes with a personal coordinator. Ours was Sarah German who took care of and organized absolutely EVERYTHING that we needed. I was able to make sure I found all the other vendors that I wanted/needed and she organized anything and everything that they needed from when they could come set up to prepping last minute ceremony changes. I didn't have much to ask her until the last couple weeks of which most was already organized. She never made us feel like we were bothering her, always answered right away and took care of just about everything throughout the entire wedding. She was fun, down to earth, personable and very organized. None of the wedding party or our parents needed to have a phone on them all day! We went over everything beforehand and the day of the wedding everything was set up and went off perfectly. There isn't enough great things to say about Sarah or the Salon at the Belle Mer. I wouldn't change a single thing about the wedding location or the people that surrounded us that day! A huge thanks goes out to all of them. We have gotten "the best wedding I've ever been to," which I think was partly because of how smoothly and seamless the Belle Mer and Sarah made everything. I hope you felt that the same way!

Belle Mer did an amazing job with our wedding. Steven James, the event planner who we worked with, was phenomenal. He was incredibly responsive, always getting back to us right away with detailed answers to all of our questions. He understood all of our needs and made sure that they were all met. He made the planning process so easy. The event itself was beautiful and everything ran very smoothly. We had a bridal attendant with us all night who was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed (and reminded us to eat!) There was a minor glitch in the schedule which delayed dinner service, but they were able to quickly adapt and turn it around, and even allowed us to extend the wedding by an extra 30 minutes due to the error. Our guests could not stop raving about how wonderful everything was - the setting, the food, the organization and flow of the whole event. We are thrilled with our decision to host our wedding at Belle Mer!

Belle Mer is absolutely amazing! The venue itself is gorgeous - one of a kind and then when you add the staff, food, service, and attention to detail, there is no comparison. I would recommend this venue to anyone! Our guests are still raving about it!

I had my wedding at Belle Mer on July 27, 2015. It' s an amazing and beautiful venue located in Newport. Location is perfect for weddings, plus it provides private setting. Event coordinators are very professional and are ready to make your day the day you always dream about. Food is very delicious. I believe this is a wonderful place to make your dream day to come true. Thank you Belle Mer for taking care of us. Elena and Liwae
