  • We knew this was our venue the minute we saw pictures. The venue is so incredibly classic without looking too high-brow. We were having such a hard time finding a majestic venue without it being a manor in the middle of nowhere. The venue is right in the middle of Providence, which made it so easy for our guests to travel and find accommodations! part of the library was under construction when we were getting married (the other side of the building), but it really didn't affect us at all. The space itself is great -- there is a top level for your ceremony, and lower area for dancing, and a separate room for eating dinner. I was nervous about it but it worked REALLy well. It kept people on the dance floor! To top it off, the caterer/event management - Russell Morins were AMAZING. About Russell Morin: Below is an excerpt from the email I wrote to Ardriana, our event manager at Providence Public Library and our day-of-coordinator. I wrote this only 2 days after our wedding, which full... Read more

    Karina & Greg - I cannot thank you enough for choosing Russell Morin at the Providence Public Library for your wedding! Your wedding day was pure perfection - right down to the amazing cat stickers! I am beyond thrilled for you both and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Sending so much love to Mr. & Mrs. Lin-Murphy! Ardriana

  • When we told people we were getting married at a library... we got a lot of puzzled looks. Then we showed them photos and people's eyes would light up, and that's exactly what it's like walking in to PPL. You enter through the beautiful stone facade and you're standing in a foyer at the base of a grand marble staircase; one that your wedding party will walk down and take photos on. Then, you're standing in the ceremony space and the more you look around, the more you notice the gilded details, the columns, the chandelier... and all the possibilities that the space provides. We had our ceremony with 140 guests seated and we didn't even need any extra decor (ok, well we got one of those big light up trees but that's it!) The space is so naturally elegant that it doesn't really need anything extra. Then everyone moved down to the courtyard for cocktail hour, and it's a gentle change of scenery that's still inclusive of everything and everyone. Our older guests loved being able to sit on t...

  • Getting married at PPL (Providence Public Library) could not have been better. the set-up is ideal, the dance floor is UNBEATABLE! Having everything on-site makes it so easy, and Russell Morins (the catering company exclusive with PPL) made our day so seamless and perfect. We had just over 100 guests and it was the absolute perfect size. Not only is the layout of the venue perfect, but the historic details are jaw-dropping - so many amazing photo opps! It is in close proximity to many great hotels downtown. Their bridal suite upstairs is also amazing and a great place to get ready/dressed before the big day! We wouldn't have changed a thing, this venue and the staff and catering company was beyond perfect.

    Kelly & Nathan - can I just say how wonderful you both were to plan and work alongside for your big day! I am beyond thrilled that our beautiful Library was the perfect fit for your dream day! Thank you for sharing these amazing moments with us! Sending you so much love - Ardriana

    Chris & Alicia - It was truly such a pleasure working with you both to create the most perfect celebration. I will never forget the amount of love shared between the two of you and all of your friends and family! Between your tear-jerking toasts to your epic first dance - it was most definitely a celebration for the books! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! Ardriana

  • I cannot say enough good things about the library and Russell Morin catering. From the time we booked the library in May 2016, Lisa was there for everything we needed even if we did have a year and a half before the wedding! When Kacey came on board we began communicating more with her. She was extremely responsive to emails, answered even what I thought were silly questions, and gave reccomendations from her experience. October 2017 came quick and at our final meeting I knew we were in good hands with Kacey. She is AMAZING! The day of the wedding was better then my husband and I could have ever imagined. Everything ran smoothly and our guests are still raving about the decor and the amazing food. Kacey did an amazing job keeping the flow going and making sure everything was on point. All of our vendors were amazing as well. They all worked together to make sure the night ran smoothly. If you are contemplating the library for your wedding, DO IT. it was the best decision my husband and... Read more

  • The perfect venue for our Harry Potter wedding. It was a beautiful setting, and the team made it the most perfect day for our wedding! I am so happy that we chose the library, it was the first venue we visited and we really didn't need to see anything else. So thrilled to have had our wedding there!

  • The library was pure magic! They provided us a completely unique and special experience that our guests are still raving about! Planning with Lisa and Kacey was an absolute breeze and I couldn’t have had a more invested and special team-they make the couple and their families feel completely at ease. There was nothing cookie cutter about their work-they remember the smallest details, answered what I sometimes thought were the craziest questions in an email, and shared the same level of excitement about our wedding as I had! You can’t duplicate a team like theirs. Morin’s Catering was beyond! Since none of our family was from Rhode Island it was important to us to capture everything Providence in that weekend and our custom menu from Morin’s Catering was just that! The lobster rolls and fried dough were huge hits! Lastly, there was something magical about the venue itself. We had both our ceremony and reception there but changing the furniture, Ormonde lightning colors, ... Read more

  • Perfection! PPL was the perfect reception location for our 'mini-destination' wedding. All of our guests were from out of town, and everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how much they loved the separation of cocktail hour/dining room/ dance floor (which is one of the reasons we chose it, other than its beauty). The dance floor is perfect for introductions and dancing all night without the awkward feeling that people are just sitting at their tables watching you act a fool. Lisa Nightingale is a saint. Without her I don't know how I could have pulled any of it off. I liked her so much that I hired her as our day-of coordinator (through Russell Morins). She was always so happy and made everyone that was part of our wedding very much at ease. I honestly felt like I was talking with a longtime friend, and to me that's comforting in itself. The food was AMAZING. From the steaks, to the wild mushroom ravioli and desserts, each of my guests that I talked to raved about al... Read more

  • My daughter's wedding at the Providence Public Library was a magical event! From the beautiful ceremony to the fabulous hours d'oeuvres (lobster tater tots, bacon wrapped figs, and Gorgonzola baskets!!!) to the incredible dinner (one of our guests was a chef at a Boston restaurant and he asked for more Shrimp Neptune- that is how good it is!!) to the wonderful passed desserts (lemon cupcakes, root beer schnapps floats), everything was absolutely delicious and beautifully executed. Robin Hollow farms created beautiful flowers and Ormonde Productions did an amazing job. At the end of the night, everything was done and we were able to head out to enjoy the after party. We received multiple comments that it was the most beautiful wedding our guests had attended. We also heard wonderful feedback on the food. Typically, wedding food is mediocre. That was most certainly NOT the case. Morin's did an incredible job. I cannot say enough about how perfect the wedding was. It surpassed my expecta... Read more

  • When we first visited the Providence Library when venue shopping, we were just amazed at how beautiful it was! It was honestly a decent amount more than what we wanted to spend on a venue but we were so in love with it that we decided to splurge. You only get married once, right?! We booked pretty early, roughly 1.5 years out from our wedding. We originally were working with Michael. While I understand our wedding was a long ways off and other weddings were prioritized to ours, he was absolutely HORRIBLE at responding. Some emails he never even responded to at all and one email took him TWO months to respond to. He also had downplayed the renovations the venue was going to be going through. The entire actual library space was completely out of commission by the time our big day came around. We weren’t able to take any pictures in the ‘stacks’ and their Special Collections room was no longer available for photos either. Those were two things that were a MUST for us so we... Read more

  • beautiful and wedding dream venue! If you are looking for a unique wedding venue this is it. We loved our day and all of our guests kept commenting on how unique the venue was and how amazing the food was. Lisa was so easy to work with, especially since I was planning from overseas. We didn't get the lighting, instead set up lots of candles and battery lights and worked still beautifully. We also made our own centerpieces from old books and kept the whole library theme throughout the wedding. Had a piano player for our ceremony, which was just beautiful. I would just say to keep in mind on the pricing and furniture extras. Just a stunning place to be married.

  • My husband and I are from the Mid-West but now reside in New England. When we began to look at wedding venues--logistics quickly rose to the top as a must have in our venue. Once my guests arrived I didn't want them to have to worry about a thing. I'm also not a big DYI'er so it was important to me to have a venue that "spoke for itself" as I didn't want the stress of decorating. A few Google searches led us to Providence Public Library (PPL) and a quick trip down on a Sunday confirmed it. Everything about the PPL was a breeze and turnkey. Kacey was such a delight to work with - whenever we corresponded she was always responsive and upbeat. The food/cake/drinks were all delicious! It was hands down the best day of our lives, and I know so much of that was thanks to the amazing staff at PPL!
