Amazing wedding venue
By far the best value in Rhode Island. Our wedding was classy and elegant. We had the ceremony outside in the backyard, cocktails in the ballroom, dinner in a tent and dancing back in the ballroom. Renata was so easy to work with and everything was a dream. If we could get married again, we would do it at Aldrich House in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/20/2018

The venue speaks for itself- romantic, whimsical, garden-y, elegant but NOT stuffy! I had ceremony in garden, cocktail hour in ballroom and dinner in tent outside. There is also huge wall painting of old historical Providence from early 1900s to give it the historical touch. The place was so beautiful on its own - that i needed minimal decor- just flowers.Sent on 08/02/2018
The event coordinator was a great lady. She was very flexible ( I visited the place several times to show to my fiance, photographer, friends etc). She got back to me via email always within 24 hours answering all of my bridal weird/panicky questions that I had and not so weird questions. She steered me towards helpful vendors that they also partnered with so that it made the whole process less daunting. She was reliable, good spirited and made herself very available. Something I did not know I would come to really appreciate, because there are wedding people out there that weren't! I loved this place, was such a gem situated right in surrounding cobble street neighborhood of east side Providence. Thank you Aldrich house, you guys were dope!

Our wedding at the Nelson Aldrich house was perfect. We had 80 guests and the room we got married in provided a big yet intimate feel. The grounds are beautiful and allowed us plenty of outdoor photo ops. The staff were accommodating and incredibly helpful and responsive. I am very happy to have gotten married at the Rhode Island Historical Society HQ, it made our day that much more special to us RI natives.Sent on 12/27/2017

Excellent Company to work with! We highly recommend.
We have worked with Aldrich House recently for a wedding this past July and for indoor photos from a bridal party a few years ago. Both times, the venue was a pleasure to work with. Always accommodating and friendly. Definitely worth checking out, especially for those seeking a historic venue in Providence!
Absolutely a gem of a place. This beautiful Architectural space sets the ambience for an elegant and magical event. The setting brings you back in time where Romance was the theme. Wonderful staff makes it even more special. 5 stars all the way!
