2021 Best of Newport Wedding Award Winners

By  |  0 Comments

We’re proud to bring you the results of our annual Best of Newport Wedding Awards, featuring winners in 31 categories, as chosen by the readers of Newport Wedding magazine and attendees at the Newport Wedding Show.

Recognizing how compact the Ocean State is, we eliminated distinctions between Newport County and statewide winners this year, crowning just one victor in each category (except in the case of a tie). But we acknowledged the runner-up, so you’d have more options to choose from.

Only Rhode Island–based businesses are eligible for this award, so we had to exclude some popular choices. Nevertheless, we hope the results prove helpful as you’re planning your Big Day.

Congratulations to all!

(These winners were announced in the 2021 edition of Newport Wedding magazine)
