Host a Wedding at Champlin’s 

Selecting the venue for your dream wedding is a huge decision. Do you envision a perfect seaside view while you say, “I do?” Maybe having the guests toast with world famous mudslides is a must for you?  With spectacular views, a boutique hotel, world-class marina, dockside pool and restaurants, Champlin’s Resort and Marina is a one-of-a-kind venue to host your destination wedding. Located just off the coast of Rhode Island, Block Island is home to sandy beaches, friendly locals, and good times. The natural beauty and allure of Block Island enchants and welcomes generations of island goers as a place to gather and celebrate life and its adventures. Here’s everything you need to know when hosting your wedding at Champlin’s on Block Island! 

From intimate to elaborate, simple to extravagant, curating your own special day has never been easier. Select from our five beautiful venue options on property including the Hill, the Pool, the Beach, Pier 76 Dock Bar, and The Galley House Waterfront Restaurant. The Hill offers an enchanting seaside view and is one to make the pictures unforgettable for years to come. When you exchange your vows at the Pool venue, it will be a modern and exclusive event experience. However, if a beachy island vibe with sand filled shores, water backdrops, and ocean breeze is calling your name, then the Beach is the perfect option for you. To ensure your wedding rehearsal, ceremony, and reception of your dreams comes to life, our dedicated events team is here to support you every step of the way. We understand every marriage celebration is different, this is why each of our wedding and events packages are fully customizable to best accommodate your guest count, catering needs, music preferences, and more.

A wedding isn’t complete without delicious food from start to finish. This is why Champlin’s offers delectable dining options curated for your wedding including hors d'oeuvres, plated menus, or stations like charcuterie, raw bar, or bubble stations. Additional available add-ons include beverage packages or champagne welcome packages. Collaborate with our events team to view specific menu options available for your big day! 

Your wedding party and guests will be able to conveniently stay right on property at our newly renovated boutique hotel! With 42 coastal inspired rooms, the elegant island vibe of your celebration will shine through on all fronts. Our nine different room options range from queen beds, to doubles, kings, and luxurious sweets which can offer both waterfront and idyllic island views. When you stay at the resort you’ll be able to enjoy all the fun amenities like a waterfront pool, charcoal grills, lawn games, fire pits, and more! Be sure to include our Beach Guide on your wedding website for your guests so they can explore the island during their stay. If your crew is coming by sea, our full service marina will be the perfect place to dock their boat while enjoying your weekend festivities.
