A Raw Look at Belle Mer of Newport, RI

Belle Mer is one of Newport, Rhode Island’s most sought out wedding venues, and for good reason! It is most iconic for its oceanfront white wall, modern architecture, and stunning view of Newport’s coastline. Along with the view of the Pell bridge that connects Newport to Jamestown. Even though there are images all over the internet of this stunning venue, you typically won’t see images of it in its natural state. Unadorned by wedding decor and guests, Belle Mer is STILL a beautiful place to check out. When you are overwhelmed by the inspiration of other couples, it’s good to see a “clean slate” so you have room to let your own imagination take over and come up with something unique to you and your fiance’s personalities.

We have toured the grounds quite a few times and are so excited for the couples we get to photograph here. We highly recommend this place if you feel strongly about having an ethereal aesthetic for your wedding. We at Jamal & Lashana photography are huge fans of all-white everything accompanied by Large windows and Belle Mer is definitely not lacking in either category. In order to have that dreamy light & airy look for your images, not only do you need a photographer who shoots and edits in this style, but your venue choice and color pallet need to match that. The neutral ambiance that Belle Mer has will help enforce this so you can have the wedding that you are dreaming of.

Belle Mer is owned and operated by the Longwood Venues company which has a few other immaculate and modern event properties spread out between Newport and Boston, Massachusetts. Their venue facilities all offer their own taste of grandeur with a different style that suits each and every individual couple. Although each location is stunning in its own right, Belle Mer is hands down our favorite. If you are looking for a coastal venue with the perfect combination of pristine views inside and out, then look no further than here!
