  • I cannot say enough about the amazing experience we had with our wedding at the library, more specifically with Lisa our wedding planner from Morins! Lisa was PHENOMENAL!! Unfortunately, on the day of my wedding I caught a horrible stomach flu that almost kept us from having the wedding and Lisa was just beyond amazing. Without her, and of course, my spectacular bridal party, I'm not sure we would have been able to have the wedding! Even that day aside, she was amazing. She was helpful and patient and so easy to work with! She truly cared about my husband and I and made a stressful time so much easier. I literally didn't eat or drink anything at the wedding, but I'm told the food was great and of course, the venue was just spectacular. If I have one teeny, tiny gripe it's only that there are some minor things you have to work around because it is, of course a functioning library. We did not have a huge budget but both my husband and I felt that it was well worth every penny!! The Morin... Read more

  • Our wedding turned out absolutely beautiful, and the library was a big part of that. Recently renovated, we felt excited that not too many weddings had taken place in this space, and loved talking about it with other vendors and friends/family. The library has an exclusive partnership with Russell Morin's Catering, which while a pit on the higher end price wise was fine with us, as we didn't have to worry about the quality of the food or service. And we were right! Everything was delicious. As for the library itself, while we loved working with vendors who hadn't been there before and were excited to try it out, we would DEFINITELY recommend a DJ/band who has played there before, as the acoustics can be a little tricky with all of the different side rooms and the two different floors. The lighting was beautiful, especially since we splurged a little on the lighting package, but it was worth it! Make sure if you're having a larger summer wedding they start cooling the space out as... Read more

  • When we stepped inside the Providence Public Library we knew right away that it was the perfect venue for us. The library is absolutely beautiful and unique. The library looked magical for our winter wedding. We brought in a 12 ft Christmas Tree and garland and it truly transformed the library into a winter wonderland. Not only is the venue stunning, but the team at Russel Morins is exceptional. We had the pleasure of working with Lisa and Lizzy. They were both so helpful throughout the wedding process. They answered any questions we had along the way, let us view the space on several occasions, and helped tremendously on the day of the wedding. If you are looking for a memorable, elegant space with a highly professional staff be sure to check out the Providence Public Library.

  • It was so great to work with Lisa during our 12-plus months of wedding planning! She just GETS it - from the gazillion (repetitive) questions to relieving my nervousness, she just knew how to handle all of it! The Russell Morin food was delicious and the library is gorgeous! It was just enough of a "blank slate" for us to make the celebration unique to us, yet satisfied the elegance we were looking for. I highly recommend Lisa, Russell Morin and the Providence Public Library!

  • My husband and I had an incredible experience planning our wedding at the Providence Public Library! Lisa and the Morin's team make sure that no stone is left unturned. Lisa is so easy to work with and incredibly attentive to any need along the way. I felt as though our wedding vision was made the utmost priority and the big day showed that as well. The library is unique and such a beautiful venue, and we haven't stopped getting positive comments on our food and overall flow of our event. We truly felt that our money went such a long way with this venue and with Morin's, who is the exclusive caterer for the venue. My husband and I wish we could live the day over again, we had the best day ever!

  • The Providence Public Library is an absolutely amazing place to host your wedding. My husband and I LOOKED everywhere for our Wedding venue (Barns, seaside inns, golf clubs, manors, everything!) The library was the first place we visited and we immediately were drawn by Lizzy and Ali. Their helpfulness, confidence, and calm demeanor is exactly what I needed. I'm not a Bride who has envisioned her Wedding since the age of 6...so when I got engaged I needed a lot of guidance. Both Lizzy and Ali were fabulous. Beyond that the space is just superb. We had our Ceremony and Reception both in the space and it was perfect and unique. WE had use of multiple spaces and it really created a fabulous party. The food, ambiance, and service were top notch. The only downside is that due to the harsh lighting in the Library it is almost a requirement to hire Ormond Productions for Lighting (the Library has a relationship with them and you can only use them). They are amazing, but add on a minimum of $2... Read more

  • I can't imagine a more perfect location for our wedding, or a more helpful group of people than the Morin's Catering staff who saw us through every aspect of our wedding. I have attended over 25 weddings as a guest, and our venue and coordination was truly spectacular. We wanted something a little more distinctive than a hall or a country club, with a space that would comfortably and easily fit our guest count. So many of the venues on our short list were nice, quaint estates, but were far away from hotels and guests had to be divided between different rooms. The location of the library right in downtown makes it easy to coordinate so many different aspects of a wedding. The Morin's staff (Lizzy, Ali, and our personal butler (!)), were phenomenal. They took care of everything and really made it the best day of our lives. Additionally, the guests all raved about the food - every bite was delicious. I couldn't ask for anything more!

  • The Providence Public Library was a perfect venue, and we were happy with our wedding there in every way. One thing that really stood out was the Russell Morin staff. They were incredibly professional from start to finish, and they helped us to keep everything organized both leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself. The food was absolutely incredible and delicious--we especially recommend the sea bass, which was the best fis

  • We had our wedding and reception her on Aug 1, 2015. Our entire experience here was excellent. Working with Russell Morin Catering, who handled everything, was pain free, well orchestrated and managed as beautifully as you could hope for. From our first visit, to the tasting, (OUTSTANDING!!) to the set up and the day of the ceremony, they handled everything to a top tier level. The venue was beautiful. Many of our guests were a little sceptical until they walked in and then they were awed by the beauty and majesty of the place. We heard nothing but wonderful comments on how suprised they were on how nice the Library was and how excellent the food was. If you have any doubts, go and look. It's a unique place to have the wedding and the 2 floor reception/dance area makes for a wonderful experience.

  • I couldn't be happier with my venue. The Library is so beautiful and everyone really liked that there were different locations through out the event. The cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing had different locations and people were able to walk around, or sit and talk during the dancing section. All the staff were so helpful and experienced. I loved this venue and would recommend it to anyone.

  • I had my wedding reception at the Providence Public Library and it was absolutely perfect. Not only is the location beautiful, but they were professional and easy to work with from my first inquiry. They also worked really well directly with my other vendors which made everything seamless. It was definitely more money than I had hoped to spend, but for what I got it was well worth it. And the food was incredible! My only advise is make sure you don’t forget the snack they pack for you to take back to the hotel after the event, we gave ours to my parents and we were really regretting that at 2am when we were starving!

  • The Providence Public Library was the perfect place for our reception. My husband and I envisioned getting married in one of the beautiful, outdoor spots in Newport. When our wedding date got moved to March (and the snow kept falling), it became clear we would need an indoor space. We struggled and struggled to find anything near the shore that had enough space indoors or the right feeling (not to mention price). One day I remembered the library. We both visited separately and instantly knew, this was the place and the package with Russell Morin catering made it the smartest decision you could make. -It is evident from the photos that the Library is stunningly gorgeous and there is no need for copious decorations. It gave us the most beautiful backdrop for pictures. With our budget we were unable to afford extra lighting by Ormonde Productions (the library has an exclusive contract with them) but the lights they had were more than sufficient and we felt that nothing was lacking. -Th...

  • Venue prefers ceremony + reception as oppose to just a ceremony location. If you're looking for a ceremony site, this isn't a ideal place. Ceremony cost $2500 for just two hours and needs to be over by 2:30 in the afternoon. They probably do this to avoid loosing out on money.

  • We had our wedding at the Providence Public Library in October 2015. The library is absolutely beautiful and is so unique – we received compliments from so many of our guests. They were happy to be somewhere besides a country club or ball room. The exclusive caterer, Russell Morin, was outstanding in both food and service. We are still receiving compliments over how fun and unique the hors d’ouevres were. While I wouldn’t classify the library as “cheap”, I felt we got a tremendous amount of value for what we paid. The service provided by Morins is outstanding and really makes you feel like this is an incredibly luxurious venue. A few close relatives tried to guess what we paid based on their experience at our wedding and they guessed $10-20k more than what we paid. The only negatives were relatively small and had to do with the library’s rigid policies about opening/closing times and lighting. Our rehearsal needed to be at 4:15pm because the library closes right at 5... Read more
