“Aldrich Mansion truly is the perfect wedding venue. It’s gorgeous and has beautiful views right on the water. Their wedding package is such a great value and includes so much. And, for what wasn’t included in the package, Aldrich had a list of recommended vendors, making planning that much easier. Plus, the members of their team are absolutely incredible. Tony, Aldrich’s wedding coordinator, was so great to work with and very responsive. He has so much experience with weddings, and he was really helpful when we needed advice. Everyone there really does go above and beyond to give you the wedding of your dreams, and my husband and I could not be more grateful.”

What sets Aldrich Mansion apart?
The natural beauty of the historic property, dating back to 1912, sets the mansion apart. The estate sits hilltop with panoramic views of Narraganset Bay. We give our clients exclusivity as the Aldrich Mansion is the only mansion of its kind in the area. We also have a Catholic Chapel for Catholic ceremonies.
Where are the best photo ops on your property?
The mansion has numerous photo op locations spread out among seventy acres of beautifully manicured lawn. The ethereal feel of the Boat House, the Rose Gardens overlooking Narragansett Bay and the delicate and striking architecture of the mansion all make for gorgeous backdrops.
Is Aldrich Mansion a one-stop shop?
At the mansion, we strive to make your event everything you can imagine! We have an on-site Catholic Chapel for ceremonies. Cocktail hour can be held outdoors on the stone patio or in the ornate marble foyer. The dining rooms and the dessert room are perfect settings for you and your guests to enjoy the special day!
Do you have an on-site planner?
Tony Maggiacomo is our executive wedding planner. His knowledge and experience planning weddings goes beyond years. He is prepared and excited to help the vision of the client’s day come to life. From the initial tour of the property to understanding what it takes to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, Tony is here to guide you. Additionally, on the day of the wedding, there is a host on-site to make sure the day is on-schedule and running smoothly.
What’s your capacity?
The mansion can hold up to 230 guests for a seated dinner; 100 guests in each dining room and thirty guests seated on the porch, which connects the two dining rooms.
What’s your catering situation?
All catering is done in-house by our executive European chef, Al Landeveld. With more than thirty years of experience, Chef Al’s creativity and attention to detail set our menus apart. The menus can be customized to the client’s preferences and tastes, as well.

What’s your alcohol policy?
Our clients provide the alcohol to fit the wants and needs of their event under the direction of Brian Lako, our exclusive liquor consultant. Brian helps provide the best bar experience for our clients and their guests. Not only is Brian knowledgeable, he is an experienced bartender at the mansion.
Do you host multiple weddings at a time?
Currently, we only host one event per day, giving our clients exclusive use of the property and our utmost attention. Our clients have the option of picking a six-hour time frame for their special day.
What questions should couples be asking during their venue search?
They should ask themselves what is most important to them. What do they want to remember about their wedding day? Is it the food? The atmosphere? The service? At the Aldrich Mansion, we strive to provide our clients with the best possible care and attention, making sure that their questions are being answered every step of the way in preparing for their big day!
Do you host any other wedding-related events?
With a variety of rooms and flexibility in planning, the mansion can host a wide range of events such as bridal and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, fundraisers, as well as corporate events. We also have ticketed events open to the public.
