Amazing - Quality and Experience is Top Notch
My husband and I were SO happy and impressed with everything leading up to our wedding and especially on the day of. The efforts from Elise, Sarai and the entire staff were accommodating and professional. The attention to detail was incredible. Any question I had was answered and any problem was solved in the matter of minutes. The food was amazing -- from the lunch in the bridal suite, the appetizers at Cocktail Hour and the entrees during the reception and the post-wedding breakfast -- the Graduate did not disappoint. All of the guests enjoyed the venue and the wedding reception immensely. They are still talking about it! Everything the Graduate did to keep the beauty of the Biltmore was perfect. Thank you for the best day of our life!Sent on 07/08/2019

Wedding Brunch at the Biltmore
From the moment we walked into our first meeting with Elise at the BIltmore it felt as though we were not planning our wedding alone. Elise walked us through every detail from the timeline of our wedding, to the way the napkins were folded, and any FYI's that we may have forgotten throughout the planning process. Every detail discussed was perfectly executed on our wedding day. The staff at the front desk was friendly and proactive to our guests. The food was outstanding and exceeded all expectations, and the venue's renovations were stunning that every photo was a show stopper.Sent on 06/13/2019
WE LOVE THE BILTMORE! Our band had two weddings there last season, and hope to do more! A wonderful venue for weddings--very organized, great food, great service... All-around a great choice for any event--the best choice for a Providence wedding! A shout out to Elise, the organizer, who has been great to work with... Bravo! See you soon.
As a vendor, I love working with the staff at the Providence Biltmore.They are so very professional and helpful. It is a wonderful venue with great views. The staff, from the banquet managers to the work crew all know what is going on and always on top of things. It is a fabulous place for a wedding or any type of party.
