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 I ever made. Thank you Providence Public Library for the most amazing wedding day and memories to last a lifetime.

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, and the gallery feel made every portion of the night unique! HIGHLY RECOMMEND the library for a once in a lifetime experience!

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 all the dishes (shrimp neptune being the real showstopper). The staff was all so great and seemed genuinely happy to be there helping us. Even some girls working in the kitchen that had to walk through the dance floor actually danced through the dance floor with all of us, haha, everyone loved that. Our personal butler was the cherry on top, seriously, I always had a drink in my hand, didn't have to ask twice for anything, and most of the time I didn't even have to ask for anything at all, it's like she read my mind. This venue is perfect in every way and worth every penny. Everything went by smoothly and the day was perfect. 10 stars.

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 expectations on every level. Thank you for a wonderful evening!!!

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 $2,000 to your total bill to manage that. It's worth it, but beware and build it into your budget. In all, I'm so grateful we had our wedding at such a wonderful venue.

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
