Newport Yachting Center Gay Wedding, Rhode Island

Chris and Matt’s wedding at the Newport Yachting Center in Rhode Island was classy and elegant. The blue and yellow color theme was beyond gorgeous. They incorporated the colors in their wedding invitations and save the dates. They were fresh and colorful. Every detail in this wedding was flawless – the boutonnieres, the matching groomsmen suits, ties and shoes, the mix and match blue and yellow bridesmaids dresses and bouquets.Newport gay wedding grooms portrait

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding celebration?

Chris: It’s a tie between standing across from Matt during the ceremony and dancing with my mom and both of us refusing to listen to the song because we would both start crying.

Matt: I will always remember how our dance floor was full of guests the entire night! Everyone had a great time!gay wedding boat dock

The ceremony at Newport Yachting Center was beyond beautiful. The yachts and boats made an incredible backdrop for the ceremony. We also couldn’t have asked for better weather.

It was a gorgeous tented reception – it was perfect for any summer wedding. I loved it when they had chandeliers in tented wedding receptions. The staff at Newport Yachting Center were incredible to work with and did a flawless job with the setup.Newport Yachting Club wedding reception setup

Chris: Having gay-friendly vendors is very important so that you can feel comfortable when planning your wedding and know that your vendors have your best interest in mind.

Matt: Wedding planning can be stressful. Being treated differently because of who you love isn’t something anyone should have to worry about.Newport Yachting Club LGBT wedding

Funniest memory of the night?

Chris: This is a tough one, but I think I may have to go with my friend Shawn ripping his pants from dancing too much… really shows how much of a party we threw!

Matt: One of our groomsmen dropped and broke a glass on the dance floor during the first fast dance of the night. It was a great way to set the tone for an awesome party!Newport Yachting Club gay wedding toast

Any advice for future grooms?

Chris: Communicate well during planning so that both grooms’ ideas and wedding dreams can be reflected in the big day! And this will make sure both sides feel represented.

Matt: Enjoy the entire planning process! Even though it can sometimes be boring or stressful, you’ll miss it when it’s over!fun wedding party dance
