Built in 1799, Fort Adams is a historic venue right on the water in Newport. Creating its own little peninsula, the fort has sweeping water views on three sides. Visitors see the Newport Bridge, the harbor, and perfect golden sunsets. It’s picture perfect. Boasting venue spaces that hold anywhere from 30-350, Fort Adams can accommodate a wedding of any size. The rich texture of the bricks makes for a beautiful backdrop.
Weddings can be hosted inside or out, in a tent on the grounds outside the forts walls, or inside the fort’s facilities. The North Lawn is just outside the walls of the fort. Holding anywhere up to 600 people, this space holds the most people and has gorgeous views of the Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor. Similarly, the Parade Field inside the forts walls holds 600 people, but the views are of the forts beautiful architecture. The North Casemates is a unique indoor space composed of three white-wahsed brick rooms. The vaulted ceilings make the space feel elegant and roomy for 200. The West Lawn, overlooking Jamestown and the Narragansett Bay, this space has beautiful sunset views for 23-125 people. The Barracks Dining Room is a renovated space within the forts inner buildings that looks out over the parade field. The brick walls and polished hardwood floors have a homey feel. The room comes with beautiful hardwood banquet tables and benches for up to 40 people. The Harbor Lights Lawn overlooks the city of Newport, Brenton Cove and Newport Harbor. With the city just across the harbor, views of twinkling lights and chic yachts will amuse around 125 guests. Whatever space you choose, guests will love the rich architecture, beautiful views, and the deeper sense of history.
