Jessica & Danny at the Providence Public Library A Sophisticated Library Wedding

Summer in Rhode Island is absolutely beautiful, whether you are by the ocean or not. This elegant Providence Public Library wedding reception took place on a beautiful July day right in the heart of the city. Jessica & Danny added glamorous gold and ivory details to their big day (like an adorable laser cut cake topper) that complimented the architecture of the Library perfectly.

The couple, both math teachers, also incorporated their profession into this affair! Their seating chart was a flashback to class for guests, having to solve an equation to find their table numbers and then their table numbers were printed on pages of vintage math textbooks.

Photographer Jaclyn L captured this lovely reception and was kind enough to share a look into this special day. Floral design was from Boston-based Lopez the Florist.
