Intimate August wedding

The Chanler was the venue of my dreams! Jessica (and everyone I came in contact with) was so helpful. One of the gentlemen (I wish that I could remember his name this far out) even pulled us aside to ... Read more have a moment to appreciate how special the moon was that night. They saved me a few of my flowers from my arrangements which would have been lost to me because I did not think about it myself at the time. It’s the little things. And the big things. My guests raved about my choice of venue for months. It was breathtaking, every part of it was everything that I’d ever imagined!

Amazing - look no further - highest level of wedding service in Newport!

Look no further - selecting the Chanler as our wedding venue was absolutely the best decision we made, and we did a ton of research on venues throughout the Newport area. Jessica and Haley were our ... Read more on-site Chanler wedding coordinators, and they were both incredibly responsive, professional, and detail oriented during several planning sessions leading up to our big day, truly going above and beyond to accommodate us with the highest level of hospitality and service. Having Haley and Jessica as an important part of our team to take care of ALL the details day-of - big and small - eliminated all stress on our part as the bride and groom, and allowed our day to unfold naturally and authentically. The Chanler's secret sauce is that absolutely every individual working on the property - from valet, to housekeeper, to groundsman, to server - took our wedding day as seriously as if it were their own. Their level of service and commitment to excellence is simply unparalleled. We would absolutely recommend The Chanler & the team -- they are absolutely amazing and we are so grateful!!
