Wedding Venues: Rosecliff

March 28, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

As you drive down Bellevue Avenue towards Ocean Drive, you're drawn to look to your left. Have you been transported to Louis XiV's Palace of Versailles?

You've just past Rosecliff. Perhaps no other location characterizes the glamorous Newport wedding like this mansion from Newport's gilded age. Built by Theresa Fair Oelrichs as a summer house for entertaining, it's was designed by Stanford White.  The mansion was modeled on The French Palace, below.

I've visited Versaille. It's BIG. On the grounds is a large man made lake, where the king recreated sailing battles with ships. Yes, that big.

Our Rosecliff however is much better place to host your wedding!  It's oceanside location, beautifully manicured grounds and victorian era decor, provides the ultimate wow factor upon entry.  From the walk down the sweetheart staircase to meet dad before the ceremony, to the first dance in the amazing ballroom, this is where a bride's wedding memories are made.
