This was the first venue we looked at and we instantly knew this was where we wanted to get married. We met Elise Shatraw, Senior Catering Sales Manager, during our initial visit and were very impressed with her from the start. We had our ceremony in the Garden Room. When we first booked our wedding we could not be guaranteed this room for the ceremony, it could have been booked for another wedding on the same night. Luckily the Garden Room did not get booked for another wedding, and was available for our ceremony. The Garden Room is beautiful on its own, minimal decorations/flowers were needed. We had 210 guests and they were able to comfortably fit in this room. Our cocktail hour was in the L'Apogee Room. The transition from the 2nd to 17th floor was slow. Due to the backup on the elevators the line to the bar wasn’t bad because guests were arriving in waves. The passed hors d'oeuvres were delicious. The reception was in the Grand Ballroom.The food was delicious. The lobster chowder was very “New England”. We went with the champagne pop and the flambé presentation, both were definitely worth it! The flambé is really fun and unique. We did have a few wedding crashers during the reception. We knew this was a possibility since there isn’t any security setup to stop people from walking into the elevator and just going up to the 17th floor. There is a wedding prelude event in the winter that all summer couples +4 guests are invited to attend.This gave us the opportunity to taste many of the food options from the menu before picking our final selections. We did find the room booking process frustrating. The booking link had rate issues/date restrictions. Our first room block filled up quickly, yet I was not notified. I would have preferred they were more proactive in communicating that the block was full. Elise was always very organized which made me feel comfortable handing off all of my wedding "stuff" and having her set it up the way I had envisioned

My husband and I recently had our wedding at the Providence Biltmore. We had both our ceremony and reception there. It was definitely the absolute best day of our lives, thanks to the Biltmore! The venue is GORGEOUS and the staff is fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for better service! We had our ceremony in the Garden ball room and our reception upstairs in the grand ball room. Our guests really enjoyed this because it gave them a change in scenery. The food was incredible and our guests raved about it! Our guests were also blown away by the flambé presentation, we highly recommend adding that to your wedding! So many of our guests said that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to. The day really did feel like a real life fairytale, thank you Elise and the Biltmore staff!

From the beginning, the Biltmore staff provided a concise and clear overview of the space, services and pricing. We did not have any surprises throughout the process. Our coordinator was flexible with requests we had, responded to emails in an extraordinarily quick time, and was always calm, extremely articulate and clear with explanations. We enjoyed our time with her and she gave us tremendous confidence for our day. We see the Biltmore as a very special and unique place. It provides a lovely cocktail space and gorgeous, character rich ballroom overlooking Providence with convenience of guest rooms an elevator ride away. But it’s not just the building that makes it special, the service provided by the staff starting with our very first visit through working out details after our wedding day, has made it a real delight. Our guests experienced this and so did we. We are incredibly thankful to the Biltmore for making our day so beautiful, enjoyable, special and fun! All of the staff we worked with were accommodating and went the extra mile. We highly recommend the Biltmore.

The Grand Ballroom at the Biltmore sells itself with its 1920s fairytale wedding vibe, and our wedding ceremony and reception were orchestrated flawlessly by the Biltmore staff. All of our friends and family raved about the room, the food, and the ambiance created by such an elegant historical property. Roland, our attendant for the evening, was wonderful- he helped us with formalities timing, made sure we ate, and did everything he could to ensure that we had a wonderful time. Elise, Jennifer, and the entire team helped us to create the best day of our lives. Many thanks to all!

Well, they say better late than never! I so wanted to leave a review for The Providence Biltmore right after our ceremony and reception, but life has been quite busy since our wedding on 10/07/17. My husband Eric and I can not say enough kind words about Elise and her staff. When Elise descended the grand staircase for our first meeting, we knew from her professional, confident, approachable and tasteful presence that we were making the right choice for our ceremony and reception venue. Her guidance, attention to detail, prompt responses to emails and warmth were appreciated throughout our one year planning process and the results were FLAWLESS. Our guests continue to rave about the exceptional service and the presentation and taste of everything we ate throughout our cocktail hour and reception. ( You must choose the lamb lollipops. You'll thank me later. :) ) The view and ambiance of L'apogee 18 can not be found anywhere else in Providence. Eric and I look forward to returning to The Biltmore for our first anniversary and to reunite with Elise and staff we got to know during our stay. I also feel the front desk, bellman and valet staff should be recognized for their professionalism as they too, contributed to a memorable experience for us and our out of town guests. Cheers to your engagement, you have found the perfect venue for the most important day of your lives! Charles and Eric Wrona-Perry

After checking out many venues, my daughter visited the Providence Biltmore. The minute she walked into the door of not only the lobby, but especially the Grand Ballroom, her decision was made. Elise Shatraw, the Senior Catering Sales Manager, walked us through everything with ease. Little did we know how wonderful she would be throughout the wedding planning process from start to finish. Her response to my many emails was super quick with every question answered and every reassurance given. The wedding was held last Friday, during the National Governor's Conference. We would never have known that anything other than our wedding was happening! The Providence Biltmore was an amazing venue for this special day.... the ceremony was held in the Garden Room, which was elegant beyond measure. Cocktails were served in L'Apogee on the 17th floor with an amazing view of the city... the appetizers and drinks were excellent! The reception was held in the Grand Ballroom... and there is a reason they call it "Grand". It felt like a fairy tale... there are insufficient words for the atmosphere. Everyone raved about every dinner course and the wait staff was spot on! Thank you Elise and Michael for a wonderful and stress-free experience.

Kudos to the events team at the Biltmore for doing a wonderful job creating a warm and inviting wedding atmosphere!

Elise and her team are simply the best. Our wedding was better then we could have imagined. From the beginning of the wedding planning process to the day of the wedding everything was perfect. I have very high expectations and they far exceeded them. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. We could not be happier.

best venue ever. we had our ceremony in the garden room and reception in the ballroom and they were both STUNNING. the food was SO DELICIOUS and elise and michael and the entire waitstaff was FABULOUS. elise was amazing to work with, so responsive to my emails and so helpful with any requests. the only issue i can think of is that a lot of rooms (including my grooms) had a big issue with the AC in their rooms but that didn't affect my amazing wedding. the biltmore literally made it the best night EVER.

Our thank you letter to the Biltmore wedding coordinator and team: What can we say? You are incredible. We cannot thank you enough for everything you and your team did for us. You made the process of preparing for our wedding day so relaxed and enjoyable. Your tireless support was what we needed to have confidence that despite a tight timeline and (at least to us) complicated plan, it would all go smoothly and perfectly – and it so did! We appreciated your attention to every detail, from the food requests through every detail of the room and other arrangements we asked about, you made it all happen and did not miss a thing. We appreciate your coordination with all of our vendors – it was so nice to know that everyone was working out all the details together and we could relax and be present in the moment of the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. More importantly, you had your eye on the event as a whole, and your artistry in pulling it all together and making everything so lovely and enjoyable is deeply appreciated. Everyone is still raving – we have heard from many people that it was the most enjoyable wedding they have attended. We continue to get glowing feedback about the venue, beautiful and artistic arrangements, and the seamless flow to the event. And both of our mothers loved working with you! Thank you again for absolutely everything. With so much appreciation,
