The closest airport to Newport is TF Green Airport in Providence. TF Green services most major carriers ( The airport is approximately 30 minutes away from Newport by car. Renting a car is not necessary, as Newport is a walking-friendly town. However, access to a car might be helpful for some.

Transportation will be provided to and from the Rehearsal dinner and Wedding for guests staying at the Hyatt Hotel or Marriott Hotel.

The wedding party will be staying in the Hyatt Hotel (across the parking lot from the main venue, Belle Mar), and the hotel predicts it will sell out early for that holiday weekend. We have reserved a block of rooms at a discounted rate for our family and close friends – you! We also booked a block of rooms at the (less costly) Marriott Hotel a short ride away. Contact details for both hotels are below.

Please reserve your room ASAP. The hotel only blocks a certain number of rooms but will keep adding to the reserved block as they sell it down. If you book early, it not only guarantees a room where you want to stay, but the hotel will then add more reserved rooms. Ideally, we all will stay in the same two hotels which will simplify shuttle arrangements for the various events. There will be no penalty if you book and then decide to cancel later, as long as you notify the hotel at least five (5) days before arrival.

We suggest a two or three night stay (there is a 2 night minimum), as there will be a rehearsal dinner on Friday, May 27th, then recreational events (and the wedding, of course) on Saturday the 28th, and Sunday brunch on the 29th.
