If you'd like to get married outside at Gurney's Newport, the Newport Harbor Lighthouse is the preferred outdoor ceremony location. This enormous space can accommodate almost any size guest list!

When you have your ceremony at the Newport Harbor Lighthouse, you're getting married with greenery behind you, the water spreading into the distance, and the gorgeous historic lighthouse rising up over your ceremony.

This is a phenomenal outdoor location that truly has to be seen to be believed!  If you're considering having a Gurney's Newport wedding, book a tour and check out the location for yourself!

If you are having a wedding reception with a guest list of under two hundred and eighty of your friends and family, consider the Rose Island Ballroom.

This lovely ballroom has stunning views of the bay. The airy dining room opens up onto a stunning deck. The Rose Island Ballroom is a beautifully sunny, cheerful space, ideal for any destination wedding or reception.


Grand Ballroom

If you are having about six hundred guests at your wedding day celebration, consider Gurney's Grand Ballroom. It's a huge room that somehow manages to feel warm, intimate, and cozy.

The Grand Ballroom is a wonderful choice for a seated dinner, a cocktail hour, or even an indoor ceremony!

Waterfront Pavilion

If you're having a smaller wedding with a more intimate guest list, the Waterfront Pavilion would be a brilliant choice for your seated dinner, buffet, dancing, or cocktail hour.
