"Breathtaking Wedding Venue", An Eventective User from Newport, RI
Oceancliff is on Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island, a few miles from the Avenue of the Americas where all the other famous Newport Mansions are located. Oceancliff is one of my favorite wedding venues in all of New England. (As a singer in a wedding band for over 20 years, I've sung at most popular wedding venues.) The ballroom has a western exposure. The bridal party table is set up against a long rounded wall of windows so all guests can enjoy the sunset. The ballroom is eloquently decorated with lines, tableware, and flowers against the beautiful hardwood floors. I've always found the staff to be experienced and attentive to the reception details and very easy to work with. The back lawn slopes gradually towards the cliff and the waters edge below. This is a memorable location for your wedding ceremony. Boats of all types pass by frequently. After your ceremony, cocktails and hors d'oevres are served between the ceremony location on the lawn and the ballroom entrance outside on the patio. Musicians or a DJ can easily load their equipment from a side door into the ballroom right where they need to setup. The band is near the dance floor about five feet away. We somewhat feel disconnected from the dancing guests, but it still works. There's really nowhere else to locate the band. Oceancliff has a separate building for resort condos. Guests can stay here. There is also a restaurant serving the public lunch and dinner, inside or on the deck overlooking the cliffs and waterfront. Even if you don't have your wedding here, you must stop by for lunch or dinner during a visit to Newport, Rhode Islan
