You can't get a better deal than the Roger Williams Casino. It has the classical beauty and detail of a mansion ballroom for a seventh of the cost! I could not be happier with our wedding at the Casino. It is such a beautiful space with SO MANY nearby landscapes for taking photographs! We used the rose garden and the band stand for some of our pictures and they came out better than I could have ever dreamed. Heather was so down-to-earth and easy to work with and got back to me sometimes within minutes of my emails, even with the tiniest detail-oriented questions. I loved using the downstairs area for cocktail hour and the upstairs for dinner and dancing. It has enough space for large parties and space for a band, a string trio, and a little alcove for the newly weds! I seriously can't rave about this place enough. It was PERFECT for my vintage, Victorian-themed wedding. I felt like an absolute princess all day. And you CAN'T BEAT THE COST!!!

I could not be happier with my choice of venue for my wedding. From the moment I stepped foot into the Roger Williams Casino I knew that was where my wedding would be and loved the idea of having our wedding in a Victorian-style building. Heather and her team were amazing to work with and extremely accommodating to my sometimes ever changing mind. We also did our ceremony at the Botanical Center and loved everything about it. The entire day went so smoothly with the help of Heather and her team and I was amazed at how stress free I was the day of the wedding.

We had our wedding at Roger Willaims Casino in Providence, RI in October 2016. This venue is extremely unique and different from most typical Newport, RI wedding venues. We recieved so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was with its dark wood and fireplace downstairs during our cocktail hour to the festive style upstairs for our reception. If you book here, the grounds of the park are also available for photographs. With our wedding in the fall, our photos came our beautiful! Heather and Lauri are both in charge and both super friendly and flexible. We had a few requests such as moving some chairs around and having the fireplace on and they were very coperative and happy to work with us to make our day very special. The price is excellent as well. Included in the venue rental are all chairs and tables as well as a pass for photographs on the grounds. They also provide a list of required caterers and I would highly recommend Emery Catering. Please see my review for thay vendor.

Roger Williams Park Botanical Center was the most amazing place for my wedding. We loved having the ceremony in the garden center, cocktail hour in the other half of the garden center and outside, while the wedding party took pictures. Then we just walked right down to the tent for a gorgeous night and awesome view.

My husband and I had our wedding in May 2016 at the Botanical Garden. We worked with Heather and really enjoyed our experience there. She was accommodating and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible for us. You do have to rent everything, but Heather gave us her opinion and made sure we had all in the information we needed before making various choices. We LOVED having our wedding there. The greenhouse is gorgeous and made for the perfect backdrop (especially at night). They shut the whole park down so that the caterers can set up, and the wedding party can get ready. We also rented a tent, and Heather & team made sure we had everything we needed in order to fit the number of guests that we had. I would highly recommend this venue!!!

We had our wedding at the botanical Center. The ceremony was outdoors on the terrace by the river. The cocktail hour was indoor and outdoor in the Mediterranean greenhouse. The reception was indoors in the 2nd greenhouse. We loved the venue! It was beautiful! There were some challenges being that this is a completely DIY venue. If you have the time and energy to plan the wedding yourself, then go ahead! As beautiful as this place is, I live in California so I think I shoudlve gone with a place that had more of a package. It's quite challenging planning from across the country. The beauty of the venue really was perfect. I worked with both heather and Richard. Richard was there for our rehearsal and wedding. He had great suggestions and really helped a lot. Cons: It is quite pricey and realizing that the cost is literally for the venue alone doesn't really hit until later in the planning process. Limited preferred caterers - it would have been great if we could've chosen a caterer that we really wanted. We were limited to their 5 preferred. 2 of them are very nice but pricey, one average priced that we chose and 2 that we didn't really consider. Dropping off decor - we brought all of our own flowers and decorations. The downside being we had to drop it off the morning of the wedding. It's not something you want to have to worry about the morning of, but it ended up being fine.

The Casino is gorgeous! We truly had an amazing wedding in this historic building. The staff is seriously the best, Heather and Lori are wonderful, friendly and endlessly helpful!! Definitely get uplighting upstairs it makes a huge difference for ambiance! The only negative(sort of) is flow, because of space, the bar and the photo-booth were downstairs and the men's bathroom was downstairs as well. Again, I would definitely have my wedding here again without a second thought!!

Heather and crew were amazing. Their preferred vendors for catering, we went with Emery's, did a superb job and we have had rave reviews about the food, service and how gorgeous the venue looked. You can't beat the pricing at the Casino and we were able to get married out at the bandstand overlooking the water. This venue was so gorgeous and perfect for our 150 person wedding, leaving ample room for the bar, dj and generous sized dance floor on the second floor. Cocktail hour was on the first floor, it was nice to be able to break it up the way it was. There were elevators for those who needed it and a large outdoor porch for additional space on the first floor. Everyone was great and the wedding went perfectly. We highly recommend this venue.

We had our wedding ceremony at the Bandstand in back of the Casino building. The day before, there was an incident that came up where the coordinator had to leave - and missed the rehearsal. Well, even if she doesn't typically stay for rehearsal, the door was locked so we could not get into the building to rehearse anything that had to be taken care of inside of the building... which, one of the plans were the "in-case-it-rains" backup plan.. thank GOD it didn't rain because I think we would have been pretty disorganized. Because it is state-owned property, the coordinators are employees of the state - they don't get commission. This is great because they are completely up-front and honest about everything. The park was gorgeous, and I was warned about taking photos in the Rose Garden because the flowers were in-between blooms at that point. I was a little disappointed with the condition of the outside space - there were broken lights, columns, etc. I think, overall it was a great value for what we got. All of the chiavari chairs and the tables were included - so they cut out rental fees on that. There were some organization issues on the day of the wedding, but I can't really determine if that was on the venue's part or the caterer's part. Not a big deal, though.

We are so happy we had our wedding reception at the beautiful Roger Williams Botanical Center. We knew from the moment we walked in the door that this was our unique wedding reception choice. Heather, the event coordinator, gave a lot of honest advice and was very flexible and accommodating during the planning process. Richard was also fantastic to work with. He took the time to show us a variety of set up options and was happy to answer any questions that we asked. Every time we visit the botanical center it only looks more and more amazing and the day of our wedding it was an absolute breathtaking backdrop! Its absolutely beautiful!

We held our ceremony and reception at the Roger Williams Casino Mansion in Providence RI and it went so well. The first floor accommodated our # of guests (115) perfectly and could have easily handled more. The fireplace was lit and with the mantle designed it was a great place for the ceremony. The reception was on the 2nd floor and the space was BEAUTIFUL. We didn't need uplighting at all because the chandeliers are on dimmers, so with that plus the candles, the lighting was beautiful. I liked that we were able to provide our own liquor and choose our own caterer. Heather is the coordinator at the venue. She's a little rough around the edges at times in terms of communication, but she gets the job done and she's very good at what she does. She knows her stuff and everything was taken care of without any problems. All of our guests LOVED the venue and our wedding was amazing. A word to the wise: have a back up plan for pictures if the weather turns to crap, because it is NOT easy figuring out an alternate way to take pics last minute when the park is rainy, windy and cold! We definitely recommend RW Casino as a wonderful place for any event.
