Special Section: The Sweetheart Table
How do I love thee?
Let us count the ways to create your wedding sweetheart table with City by the Sea elegance.
From beachy chic overflowing with flowers, to a vintage mansion with feathers and pearls, or bohemian burlap amid a winery’s gnarled grapevines. Share your first meal as husband and wife with amplified style and grace. Just don’t forget to actually eat!
Your private table awaits as you stroll between the rows of grapevines, holding your sweetie’s hand or a glass of sparkling wine. Rustic textured elements like burlap and slate complement the farmhouse table and cabernet- and mustardcolored linens, with poached duck and risotto tempting your palate.

Old hollywood glamour
Vintage never looked so good on a table. With one of Newport’s historic 19th century mansions as a backdrop of marble and gold, you’ll recreate The Great Gatsby with a modern feathered twist. Add a little caviar with your crystals and pearls and you’ll have an exquisite wedding feast fit for royalty.

Newport’s gorgeous seaside is ideal for a casual wedding, with the salty breeze and ocean waves as your background lovesong. Breathe it all in as you dig your feet into the sand then sit for a moment with one of the best views around, with your spouse by your side feeding you nibbles from the sea.
