The classic architecture of the Providence Public Library — one of our exclusive venues — inspired Lisa and Pete to host an elegant, formal affair for their spring wedding.
From the bride: “It’s hard to walk into the Library and not imagine yourself walking down those stairs and down the aisle! But really, the Library is perfect for a busy bride looking for a stress-free wedding planning experience. It is such a gorgeous space on its own that it does not need a lot of décor. Put some flowers in it and it’s picture perfect!”
The couple added several special touches to make the space their own, like a gorgeous floral installation along the stairs leading down to the lower level. At cocktail hour they treated guests to a New England raw bar with freshly-shucked local oysters and littlenecks, classic Rhode Island clamcakes and clam chowder. And they closed the night with a memorable sparkler exit set against the Library’s grand exterior.
We love the Providence Public Library because couples can choose exactly how they want to use the numerous spaces available (the Grand Hall, indoor Garden Courtyard, Ship Room and Bridal Suite), and in turn can make their celebration truly one-of-a-kind. If you’re interested in bringing your wedding vision to life at the Library, we’d love to hear from you!

“I had the benefit of working with the Russell Morin coordinators, who took care of so much for me! I did not lift a finger the day of the event. I could not recommend working with Russell Morin enough. Delicious food, wonderful venue and easy planning – what more could you ask for?” - Lisa
