    The most perfect venue and experience.

    Hotel Providence was a dream come true. I cannot say one bad thing about this place. My husband and I knew this was the perfect place for us given the amazing venue, location and price options. Kate and Emily were our two main points of contact and they were incredible. They answered every question near immediately and were able to make the day exactly how we imagined. I wish I could nominate them for the BEST DAY OF PEOPLE. My husband and I could not be more happy. The food was incredible and we felt like royalty because of how well we were taken care of. Even when weather took a turn, the hotel pivoted and made an adjustment. No one would even know we made a change. If you don't book your wedding here you are truly missing out.

    The Perfect Experience

    I chose Hotel Providence as my venue for my October wedding and I couldn’t be happier with my decision! Kate and Emily were both a pleasure to work with. They responded to emails and phone calls in a timely manner and were always there to answer any of my questions! The day of my wedding, I was SO relaxed because I put my full trust in Emily. She has the ability to make even the most anxious bride (me!) feel completely at ease. The first time I met her I trusted that she would ensure that everything went smoothly on the big day.. and her great sense of humor was just an added bonus! We got so many compliments on our wedding, and I can’t express enough how happy I am that I chose Hotel Providence. The food was excellent, all of the recommended vendors were a delight to work with, and the day went way more smoothly than I ever could have imagined!
