    Beautiful venue

    We had our wedding at Hotel Providence and we are so glad we did! The venue is beautiful. There are so many unique places to take pictures, from their staircase to the rooftop. The ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception are all held in different spaces, but all near each other. At first, I was skeptical of this idea but when I toured the hotel, I loved this! It helps break up the night and keeps guests moving. It also keeps them intrigued about what happens next. The reception room was recently painted- it is no longer red! We actually enjoyed the red, but I think for some people this color can be too dramatic or dark. The room is now a light gray color and omg, it's a beautiful change. We liked the red, but we loved the gray. It makes the room feel so much bigger and it matches everything. Weddings are always expensive, but we found Hotel Providence to be reasonable compared to other venues, especially considering all that is included. We worked with Kate for several months as we planned all the details. She is very detail-oriented and helpful as you pick out all the details. She is so accommodating and wants to make sure your night is exactly what you want it to be. We added things here, took things away there, and there was no issue at all- she made sure everything happened. I would often have random questions during the process, emailing them to Kate as they came up. She is patient and kind, always responding within a couple days and making sure everything was clear. We met Emily the week of the wedding and was our day of coordinator, spending the entire wedding day at the hotel. She worked with her staff, making sure all of the decor was set up the way we hoped. We explained how we wanted our decor, but ultimately gave her control to make any executive decisions that made sense- for example, if something just didn't look "right" in one spot, feel free to move it to a better spot. We were not disappointed by how everything looked! It was all beautiful, and it was a perfect night. We stayed in a king suite and it was the perfect size for me, 3 bridesmaids, hair/make up artist, photographer, videographer, and the family members who came in and out throughout the day. We have received many compliments for choosing this venue. We are very grateful that we chose Hotel Providence (the first venue we toured actually!) We definitely recommend this venue, and would choose it over and over again.. Thank you!
