Fabulous!Reviewed on 7/11/2013 Gizele R
So beautiful, so regal, great view, and professional staff... this place makes planning a wedding from a distance breeze. The staff is extremely responsive. They do have a lot more rules than a typical venue, but they are easy enough to follow, and they know what they are doing! They do a great job of marketing themselves, so I was pretty much sold before I took the tour. One thing to consider (which inevitably totally tipped the scale in their favor), was that this was the ONLY mansion I saw with A/C. A summer wedding in New England can go a lot of ways, and I just didn't want to take a chance that there wouldn't be a heat wave.

I Love this place! It is amazing inside and out and the staff was incredible!

My husband and I chose Aldrich in a search to have the most unique wedding. We both decided that we wanted old Frank Sinatra playing and a setting that would allow people to be inside as well as outside. As the staff greeted us at our event we were waited on by the wonderful hosts the entire evening. They made sure all things ran on time and everyone had an exceptional time. The food was also top of the minds for many, they raved about how perfect Chef Al was and how tender the meats were at dinner. In an effort to have a little breathing time, there is also a wonderful bridal sweet located upstairs, it was here where I was able to practice my dance one last time with my husband before we performed in front of friends and family. This venue truly blew our expectations out of the water. If you want your day to be the most memorable event, I would definitely consider Aldrich.
The venue could not have been better! Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but the staff are amazing and so helpful. The entire day and planning process leading up to it went so smoothly. Chef Al is INCREDIBLE! All of our guests were raving about the food (especially the beef tenderloin). I cannot Say enough good things about Aldrich :)
My husband and I got married at the Aldrich mansion 9/16/2017 and it truly was the perfect day! The Aldrich mansion is stunning, we looked at many wedding venues in Rhode Island and we were blown away with the Aldrich mansion. Tony, chef Al, and all of the staff were AMAZING. They truly care about making your wedding day perfect and will do whatever it takes to make it happen. My family/friends were amazed with how beautiful the Aldrich mansion is and are still talking about how delicious the food was. The staff is very organized and the day/night ran smoothly. I 100% recommend the Aldrich mansion to anyone looking to get married :).
Tony, Chef Al, and team were fantastic! To start.. the venue and grounds are breathtaking, and you get it all to yourself. Our guests were enamored from the second they walked into the chapel. The detail and elegance in the mansion is like no place else and it was great for our smaller, intimate reception (we closed off the second dining room for the night). To be honest, as a wedding venue, I think Aldrich blows those Newport mansions out of the water.. Anyway, the food was AMAZING. I think we will be returning yearly for Christmas dinner. Chef Al is a rockstar. Tony made they whole planning process a breeze. He was quick to answer questions or help us through paperwork. We left a lot of detail to Aldrich, and everything was perfect.
I'm not even sure where to begin, I have so many great things to say about my experience at Aldrich Mansion. I was the third person in my family to have my wedding here and it was an absolute fairy tale. Growing up down the street from the venue made it extra special to have my day there and I couldn't imagine having it any place else. The grounds and the inside of the mansion are absolutely breathtaking which made for amazing pictures throughout the entire day. Tony and Chef Al are absolutely incredible at what they do and made the experience of planning so stress free and easy. From the first time we toured the venue until the days leading up to it, the team at the mansion was so incredibly organized and accommodating. They knew exactly what we were looking for in how to make our day perfect. They provided great recommendations for where to start our photos and how to schedule important parts of the day/night. It made the day of go by flawlessly and the schedule of the night was perfect. My husband's family that came in from Texas were taken back by the beauty of the venue and the views. The guests are still raving about the food and of course the dessert room! Thank you Tony and Chef Al for all that you did to ensure our day was perfect!
I cannot rave enough about the beautiful location and amazing staff! Aldrich was the only venue I looked at and instantly knew I HAD to get married there. They were so dedicated to ensure my wedding was perfect. Tony was awesome!! Fabulous to work with :) Thank you for making my dream wedding a reality :)
Dan and I had our wedding April 30th at the Aldrich Mansion. Family and friends are still talking about how amazing everything was- from the staff, to the food, the dessert room, the location- everything. We live in MA and planning our wedding at the Aldrich Mansion was a breeze! Tony was always available to help and answered any questions promptly. The day of went smoothly and the staff handled everything for us! We can't say enough great things about Tony and the rest of the staff. They made sure our wedding day was perfect!
Aldrich Mansion is definitely the best place to get married! They take care of everything for you, the views, chapel and Mansion are breathtaking, and our wedding was so memorable! Everyone told us that it was one of the best weddings they'd ever been to. The food was so amazing too! I would recommend getting the dessert room. You'd be making a mistake going elsewhere.
Where do I begin? We had our wedding on June 17, 2017 and it was the best day of our lives. Tony, the coordinator at Aldrich Mansion, was amazing every step of the way. The Chef, Al, was also amazing. The food was the best wedding food and we still hear from everyone it was the best wedding food they ever had! The coordinator day of Amy, was so fantastic. Aldrich could not have made our wedding day more perfect. They followed our timeline and worked with our band and we truly can not thank them enough for the best day of our lives. The views, ambiance, food, everything was perfect! I planned weddings for years at a hotel, and I can truly say they out did themselves. I would recommend Aldrich to anyone! The rental fee and pricing is completely worth it. Trust me, the money is worth it! you will have the best day of your lives and have them cater to your every need. you must do the dessert room, it is unbelievable! The chef customized a menu for us and entrees we wanted, and put out such an amazing spread for cocktail hour! We have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they have every been to and we need to thank Aldrich for that! The service was top notch! we will never forget our wedding day. Thank you so much Tony, Al, Amy and all of the Aldrich Mansion staff. It was everything we could have ever dreamed of and more! Love, Sarah and Daniel
I have had my eye on Aldrich since I saw a Facebook friend got married there. When we got engaged, I knew exactly where to check out! So we went to 2 or 3 other places in RI and then the Aldrich, I didn't influence my parents or fiancé too much about how I loved it simply from pictures so they could make their own decision. My fiancé was worried about the flow since there are 2 dining rooms instead of the usual 1 ballroom. The three of them were FLOORED at how amazingly gorgeous the entire property is. We booked that day and cancelled all of our other appointments for that day. Tony is phenomenal. Not only does he have so much experience but he takes all the guessing out of it. You simply shoot him an email with any wedding question you have and you have a pleasant response right away. I can honestly say I did not worry about much at all throughout the planning of my wedding because of this amazing venue and the even better team. They set everything up for you as long as you give them direction, so you don't have to do any decorating or organizing. You don't really have to do much of anything once you drop off your stuff a few days before the big day. Al was amazing and people cannot stop talking about the food at the wedding but mostly..the dessert room!! So many people have told me that they stood in awe of the gorgeous dessert room..until they realized they needed to get in line for some bananas foster (which one of my bridesmaids is still dreaming about). I cannot say enough about this amazing place as a whole. GET MARRIED HERE!!!
My husband and I got engaged in Paris in April 2015. One month later, we were touring Wedding Venues and when we went to Aldrich Mansion, we knew that it was the right fit for our Wedding! We had about 160 people in August 2016, and our guests are still raving about the venue, view, and food! We had people of all ages and from all over the world on Our Big Day, and everyone just was so happy and comfortable at Aldrich Mansion. Aldrich is an extremely elegant venue, and one that makes you feel like your Wedding Day is truly a fairytale. We had the most beautiful weather in August and our guests were able to stroll on the lawn, sip cocktails on the patio, or wander around the rooms inside while the jazz band played outdoors. I think that one thing that sets Aldrich apart is that all of our guests had their own experience and they could do what they liked as far as where they spent their time during our Reception: the bar room, the patio and lawn, the dance floor, or the sitting rooms. We had many guests with many different tastes and food allergies and Aldrich was so accommodating with the choices! We loved our time spent with Chef Al and Tony- they are truly experts and professionals!! The staff is a joy to work with and so much of our year and a half of planning was made easier and more simple thanks to the Aldrich staff. As a Bride, I really didn't have to worry about anything on the Day, and that is an amazing feeling! If you are wondering, the Dessert Room is a MUST! We kept it a surprise for our guests, and they really, really loved it! All in all, it was the most spectacular day we ever could have asked for, and Aldrich played such a big part in making our wedding day dreams come true! Thank you especially to Tony, Chef Al, and the entire Aldrich Mansion staff! We will re-play all of the memories of our happy day at Aldrich Mansion forever. We were also so lucky to have a Harvest Moon rise over the water to end our special night! It was all so meant to be! :) C & R
I do not even know where to begin with this review because everything was OUTSTANDING for our wedding this month!!!! If I could give this place a million stars I would, that is how amazing our wedding was. First of all, my husband and I were on a strict budget and the Aldrich Mansion worked with us to achieve our dream wedding without having to sacrifice major items we wanted. Second of all, Tony the event manager is INCREDIBLE. I would love to put him in my pocket and take him everywhere with me to plan out my life. These people here know how to plan and run an event. I plan events for my job all the time and I was worried that because we did not have a wedding planner that I was going to be doing a lot of work during our wedding. Not with the Aldrich Mansion!!!! They literally are on point, they know everything and execute to the highest level. I did my own decorations and centerpieces, I took pictures and sent them to Tony and him and his staff put together everything exactly how we envisioned our wedding. I just couldn't believe I didn't have to do anything or look at a clock or what not. Two hostesses during your event will keep you on track of time and make sure you stay to the schedule you plan out with Tony and Chef Al beforehand. And yes you read that right, Chef Al helps plan the schedule! He is truly amazing as well - what an amazing chef. People keep contacting us letting us know how amazing our food was which is saying a lot seeing how we all know wedding food is usually just ehh. Chef Al is very particular about his work so he wants to work with you. I said people had nut allergies, dairy allergies,etc and he was so accommodating. Also, we wanted to do signature drinks and they went above and beyond for that too - when I walked in after our ceremony I saw my Carver cranberries beautifully strewn throughout champagne and perfectly place sugar cubed for my husband's old fashioned. I want to go back to the mansion every weekend for an event. They have kept this place in such pristine condition - when you walk in you think WOW - and that is what sold us and that is what our guests said when they arrived. It literally was a fairy tale wedding!!!! Nothing went wrong - crazy right? They keep in touch with your other vendors, all you have to do is fill out their contact sheet and then your golden. Easy peasy. Thank you Aldrich Mansion (Tony and staff) for your amazing work, you really made our dream become a reality and for that we are forever thankful!!!!!
Working with Aldrich to bring our wedding vision to life was an absolute dream. The venue itself is amazing, and the team we worked with was incredible. The mansion and grounds are stunning, and the chapel couldn’t be more convenient. The library, dessert room, grand foyer, and grounds are truly one of a kind and unforgettable. The dressing areas and private bathroom upstairs are pretty and convenient. The lower floor has AC which is extremely rare for mansion venues, and it is one of the few options for an indoor, seated dinner for 230+ in this setting on the east coast. We booked more than a year and a half out, and from day one until our wedding day (and even months after) our venue coordinator Tony and the entire team at Aldrich went above and beyond to make sure every little detail was accommodated and every expectation was surpassed. Tony was available, a great communicator, warm, friendly, and always willing to go the extra mile to bring our vision to life. He accommodated multiple visits and special requests and worked seamlessly with all of our vendors and month of planner to coordinate a very detailed event. Chef Al was equally great to work with, taking the time to review all of our menu and cake details, again accommodating multiple special requests and always greeting us with a smile and great sense of humor. His food is delicious and our guests are still complimenting the lobster bisque and tenderloin. Along with the lovely and helpful hostesses, Tony, Chef Al, and team were extremely helpful and attentive on our wedding day, and the entire staff and operation was extremely professional and efficient. Aldrich was truly made for fairytale weddings and I could not recommend it more. Everything from the venue to the food, the team, setting, and the planning process was delightful, special, and unique. Our family and friends are still saying it is the best wedding they have ever attended, and I know we owe so much of that to the magic of Aldrich.
We had an amazing wedding! Everybody was so nice to us during our wedding and took care of all the little issues without us even noticing. Everything flowed very well and all our guests were amazed at the food and the mansion itself. Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful. 10/29/2016
I cannot recommend this venue enough!! We absolutely LOVED our reception at the Aldrich Mansion. First- the mansion is absolutely breathtaking. It is elegant, gorgeous and also so unique! They only host one wedding per day, so we had the entire mansion to ourselves. We had a long reception- 6 hours! of awesomeness- and rather than being stuck in one banquet hall like other weddings, our guests could wander through the lounge, dining rooms, patio, library, waterfront, etc. We were a little nervous about it having two dining rooms, but it wasn't an issue at all. You just do things a little out of order (toasts and first dance immediately after the entrance, rather than once guests are seated), but the hostess ensures all the scheduling and transitions go smoothly, so we never worried about it. The library was straight out of Beauty & the Beast, I was in love. Second- Tony and the Aldrich staff were amazing. We felt like we were the only wedding they were hosting! Tony responded to all of our emails within a few hours and was incredibly accommodating when we were running late for appointments. Over the entire year+ of our wedding planning, he was so helpful and patient when we stressed about little details- there was no dumb question. And on the day of, they treated us like royalty and everything went perfectly (or if it didn't, we never knew!). Third- the food was to die for. The dessert room blew our guests away! We are going back to Aldrich for their Christmas dinner just so we can have their food again. And lastly- price. For the size of our wedding (200 people), this was the most inexpensive venue we could find! Which was amazing, because it was also our favorite. I would highly recommend the Elizabethan package. We also saved so much money with it being BYOB, something most venues do not offer. All in all, our wedding day was incredible and like a fairytale, all thanks to our reception being at the Aldrich Mansion!!
I really can't put into words how perfect this venue is! The minute we saw Aldrich's website, we knew this was our venue. The mansion and grounds are gorgeous, the onsite chapel is so convenient, and the staff are such a pleasure to work with. We got so many compliments from our guests and our only wish is that we could do it again! Highly recommend!
We fell in love with Aldrich mansion immediately (I mean come on, just look at it) but what we weren't expecting was how much we'd love the staff. They were always responsive, kind, and incredibly helpful. The day of the wedding, I would have been lost without the amazing staff. There was always someone by my side getting me water, making sure i had a moment to eat, and one of the waitresses even took my bouquet and put it back on the table for me. The food was outstanding, the location is beyond beautiful.. It's everything you could want in a wedding venue.
Our wedding at the Aldrich Mansion was AMAZING. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, everything was perfect. Our guests loved it and several told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Working with Tony was a breeze!!! Highly recommend this beautiful setting!
Just had my wedding at Aldrich Mansion on 8/8/2015, we had about 200 people - I can not say enough good things about this venue. Aside from it being absolutely gorgeous, the staff the day of was so incredible.. they were always checking on me and making sure I was enjoying myself and the food is delicious! It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had. I would not change a single thing about my day. I am so happy we went with Aldrich Mansion.
We were married on June 20, 2015 and could not have asked for a better more perfect venue. While all brides attempt to prepare for that "one thing that will go wrong"...with our wedding, that one thing never came. The staff, the food, the magic of the mansion, everything was PERFECT. Our guests from all corners of the country raved that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and the best wedding food they had ever eaten! Upon our arrival to the mansion to get dressed, all the responsibility and stress I felt was removed. We were in their hands and I was so glad!! We took our wedding photos throughout the grounds before the ceremony and were able to view the true beauty of this place. Next was our wedding ceremony in the chapel which went off without a hitch. The assistance and guidance provided by the mansion was impeccable and much appreciated. James and I had the best night of our lives thanks to those wonderful mansion staff - from the church to the cocktail hour to those late evening hours on the dance floor! They were there for our every need and even for the things we did not know we needed!! As an example, it began raining towards the end of the night. We had one bartender at the outdoor bar who my father at that point saw standing outside in the rain. My father told him to come in and not to worry about the bar outside. The bartender insisted that he stay, in case someone wanted to stand outside and have a cocktail. This is just one example of the efforts of the amazing staff. I am SO happy that we chose this place...a perfect venue with amazing views of the water for our guests from Florida, California, New York, Massachusetts and beyond. I urge you to consider this venue in your search, you will NOT regret visiting and falling in love with this place, just as we did! Thank you Aldrich Mansion for making our wedding day absolutely perfect.
Once we began planning there were a couple of things we were certain of; we wanted to get married in the summer and there had to be an ocean/water view. It was not until visiting our 10th venue, the Aldrich Mansion that we knew we had found the one. Set on Naraganset Bay with a vintage old-world feel, the Aldrich Mansion was the ideal place for our ceremony and reception. It was a pleasure working with the Aldrich Mansion from the planning stages to the day we said our "I do's". Our guests were overwhelmed by the Mansions beauty and RAVED about the food. If you are looking for a unique, elegant and breathtaking place to host your wedding, look no further the Aldrich Mansion is it!
Bar None, the best day of our lives!!Reviewed on 12/18/2014 Regan R
The Aldrich Mansion went above and beyond to make our wedding day a fairytale! I have been in 10+ weddings and attended 40 plus weddings in my lifetime. I have to say I waited for the right man to walk into my life, but we could not have asked for a more exquisite venue and the professionalism that was displayed was top notch! I just wish I was a guest at my own wedding!! The food is still being raved about almost two months later! Chef Al's beef tenderloin can be cut with a butter knife and melts in your mouth! The dessert room was just an added bonus, but I have to say, what a conversational piece that will be discussed for a long time coming! Bar none, I have to say our day was absolutely perfect! There was rain, but the Aldrich thought of everything! As a bride you worry if you need a planner, and whether you (or if your family is involved) can plan the entire ceremony and reception from start to finish. I did most of my planning and just firmed plans with the Aldrich. However, the Aldrich staff is very responsive with the questions via phone calls or emails you have leading up to the wedding and the day of their timing, professionalism, open doors, and "family" staff make YOUR day seamless! We highly recommend this venue! We are over the moon with how our day went and the beauty that surrounded us! By the way, being able to bring in your own alcohol saved us about $10-$15K!!
Perfect Wedding VenueReviewed on 10/19/2014 sarah d
We had our wedding at Aldrich Mansion and it was absolutely perfect. Our guests had an amazing time and many of them told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. The mansion and grounds are so beautiful and made for great pictures. We had our ceremony in the chapel which was great having the ceremony and reception right in one place with no need to travel. The food was phenomenal and the dessert room was an incredible hit with our guests. The staff at Aldrich were so helpful and easy to work with during the entire planning process and on the day of our event. We can't say enough good things about Aldrich. We highly recommend them!!!
