Like most New Englanders, come May we cannot wait for the summer season to be here in full swing. But despite our love for seaside ceremonies and al fresco cocktail hours, there is something pretty magical about a winter wedding. Especially when it’s held at a venue as breathtaking and historic as the Providence Public Library. For any couples currently in the thick of planning their winter wedding, here is a swoon-worthy one for inspiration.
The bride and groom took advantage of the library’s many different spaces for their snowy January wedding, with a father-daughter first look in the Trustees Room — which serves as the bridal suite, and is a great space for the bridal party to relax in during family photos — followed by the couple’s first look on the library’s grand staircase. The ceremony was held in the Grand Hall, before guests moved to the Indoor Garden Courtyard for cocktail hour, and then the Ship Room for dinner, where we mixed traditional round tables with rustic farm tables for a unique setup. We love the couple’s attention to detail, like using the library’s vintage card catalog for their escort cards, and folded pages within old books for their table numbers,
We not only worked with the couple extensively throughout the planning process, but also served as one of their day-of coordinators. It’s a perfect example of our dedication to bringing a wedding vision to life, from beginning to end. Here’s a testimonial from the bride and groom that makes us blush:
“My husband and I are both in the service industry, delicious food and service are things we both feel very passionately about. There is no wedding caterer like Russell Morin, people are still talking about how amazing the food was weeks later.”

We are the exclusive caterer at the Providence Public Library, along with several other venues that are perfect for winter weddings: the New Bedford Whaling Museum, The Barn at Mount Hope Farm, and WaterFire Arts Center.
