Amanda and Ryan | The Salon at Belle Mer Wedding | Newport, RI

Congratulations, Amanda and Ryan! We ended the 2022 season with their Belle Mer wedding in Newport, Rhode Island on New Year’s Eve! Amanda and Ryan created a fun and glamorous event for their guests to enjoy as they kicked off the next chapter of their lives. From the beginning of wedding planning, Amanda and Ryan knew they wanted their event to feel elevated and glamorous. With a classic color palette of ivory and black, they definitely brought that vision to life. The florals were absolutely overflowing all of Belle Mer and we were definitely obsessed! Amanda and Ryan welcomed their guests to Newport, RI to celebrate their wedding and the new year. They even ended their reception around 9:30pm before hosting an after party to ring-in the new year. It was a great twist on the NYE wedding! 

Amanda and Ryan, thank you for asking us to celebrate the start of the new year – and your new life together – with you! 

Belle Mer Weddings 

Belle Mer in Newport, Rhode Island is a gorgeous venue that’s known for its classic and elegant vibes. This optimal location rests along the waterfront and provides views like no other in Newport, RI. We love that Belle Mer is a very neutral, clean slate for couples whowant to bring their own flair to their decor and celebrations. This Newport venue has options inside and out for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception so you can enjoy the views in the way that match your wedding day vision! 

A Tip for Our Couples… 

New Year’s Eve weddings are always a blast! Not only do you get to celebrate the start of your next chapter of life together, but you get to kick off the new year with all of your loved ones. Many couples choose to celebrate NYE during their wedding reception – bringing in TVs or video displays for the ball drop, fun props, and countdowns. But, if you’re looking for a unique twist on a New Year’s Eve wedding, consider hosting an after-party after your reception at another location. Your guests can turn in early and celebrate in their rooms or join you at your after party. It’s a great little way to separate your reception and the new year!
