Real OceanCliff Wedding: Ashley & John

Ashley and John’s coastal summer wedding at OceanCliff was filled with so much beauty and love. They had a stunning color scheme with hues of pink and orange flowers.

When Ashley described her vision for her reception she said “The main goal was for the room to feel warm and inviting. Inspired by our Italian heritage, the color palette and theme were inspired by the whimsical and dreamy coast of Italy, with personal touches throughout.”

One of our favorite moments from their wedding day was that the rain stopped and the sun came out right before the ceremony started and Ashley picked the song “Here Comes the Sun” to walk down the aisle down to. Ashley said, “that was a moment that she will cherish forever and the circumstances made it that much more special.”


This wedding was so special and it will be one that we will always remember!

The publication Destination I Do  wrote a great feature about this couple. To read about their epic love story and how they have known each other since kindergarten click here! All photos courtesy of Vanessa Joy.







The Safari Room at OceanCliff featured on: Litchfield Distillery’s Mixology Spirit Series

Litchfield Distillery recently stopped by The Safari Room at OceanCliff to chat with our restaurant manager, Reagan Nicole, and sampled our new fall cocktail, the Cocoa Maple Old Fashioned. We are honored to be the first restaurant in Newport to be featured in their Mixology Spirit Series.

The Cocoa Maple Old Fashioned is made with Litchfield’s Distillery’s 4-year Straight Bourbon along with their Bourbon-Barrel Maple Syrup.

“The addition of Dark Creme de Cacao and Cocoa Bitters adds a subtle layer of chocolate flavor, while creating a velvety-smooth mouthfeel. If you love Old Fashioneds, this is a nice, simple spin on the classic recipe—one we think is especially good for the fall and holiday seasons.”

When asked what makes a great cocktail versus just a good cocktail, Reagan said “Quality ingredients and creativity…and recognizing when simplicity is necessary.”

Thank you Litchfield Distillery for visiting us and trying one of our new fall cocktails!

Featured Vendor: Newport Charter Group

Nothing says Newport summer like a cruise around Narragansett Bay.

Our friends at the NEWPORT CHARTER COMPANY recently invited us aboard the stunning Camelot for a spin around the harbor and we’re so glad they did! We hopped on at Goat Island and enjoyed a yummy gourmet picnic provided by Karma Kitchen & Catering.

Enjoy a private yachting experience and explore Newport Harbor on the beautiful 33’ Camelot. Thoughtfully named, Camelot draws its inspiration from 1930s antique American commuter boats.

The purity of its classic lines and the refinement of its luxury woodwork make Camelot one of the most attractive boats in Newport. Camelot has a roomy cockpit and vast salon which allows plenty of room for both interior and exterior seating.

Newport Charter offers small group private cocktail cruises around Newport for up to 6 passengers. They also cater to special requests, including weddings, engagements, dinners, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and seasonal events like the Newport Folk and Jazz festivals.

Their most popular package is a 1 hour 45 minute cruise through the harbor.

When you charter Camelot, the entire boat is yours. This privacy allows the captain to tailor the cruise to your liking, creating a personalized and memorable experience. It’s a great way to share the “newport experience” with friends or family.
