Newport RI and its surrounding towns on the island feature churches of all faiths and denominations, making it easy to find a place for your wedding ceremony. From famous St. Mary's Church on Memorial Boulevard where Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy married to quaint churches on rural roads, a bride can find the perfect place to exchange vows with her groom.
