Donna: Katie & Anthony’s wedding was absolutely MAGICAL! I don’t think I stopped smiling the entire evening! Every single detail was perfect! I honestly expected it, having known you for so many years and knowing how amazing you are and how detail oriented….but actually FEELING it that evening….it was over the top!Sent on 06/29/2016
The ballroom looked like a fairy tale! You orchestrated everything so well and your calm demeanor was so appreciated. People even commented to me that your waitstaff could not have been any nicer. Aqua was perfect for the cocktail hour! I could go on and on and on. Really. I’m still on cloud nine!
Katie and Anthony and Anthony’s Mom and Dad came back to my house on Sunday and we were all gushing about every single detail. Thank you so so very much! I just adore you. My heart is so full. This was the best experience ever!

My husband and I recently had our wedding at the Providence Marriott Downtown. I have to say, working with everyone there made it for an extremely easy wedding to plan and a fabulous wedding weekend. Donna DiOrio, director of catering was an absolute joy to work with throughout the 9 months that we were planning our wedding. Every time we had a questions, concern, or uncertainty she was there to help us through it. She truly made the wedding planning process easy and enjoyable. I truly felt like we were a top priority the weekend of our wedding and she made me feel at ease during what could have been a stressful time.
As we attended the Marriott on occasion throughout the planning process, we had the fortunate experience of dining in their restaurant, BlueFin Grille. We ate their 3 times (including our tasting) and each time we have the pleasure of having Kimee as our waitress. Kimee was extremely knowledgeable about the food menu and drink menu. She was able to make numerous suggestions to us that were all delicious. She was a joy to speak with and get to know along the way.
The day of our wedding we had the privilege of working with another member of Donna's team, Donnie. Donnie was available to us the entire evening of our wedding. Whatever my husband and I needed, he was able to make sure it happened. He was constantly checking in on us to make sure we ate, had a drink, etc. If there was a request we had, he was the guy to make it happen. Not only was he very attentive but he was funny, kind, and efficient. Contacting Donnie and his team the day after our wedding was also a breeze. They had all of our belongings packed up for us and we didn't have to do a thing! We stayed at the Marriott for 2 evenings after our wedding and although the event was over we were clearly valued customers. Seeing Donnie and Donna after the event, they were sure to follow up with us to make sure we didn't need anything else. They truly made our experience magical!

Donna, Chef Franco, and the rest of the Marriott staff (too many wonderful people to name.. don't want to forget anyone) could not do enough to make my daughter's wedding flawless!!!
My family has known Donna for years. We have hosted many weddings, parties, and fundraisers at the hotel. When our daughter got engaged last December, Donna was the ONLY person I called to book her wedding. It didn't even enter our minds to do her wedding anywhere else.
She, along with her staff, went above and beyond to accommodate our vendors and our requests and our out-of-town guests.
Donna was able to strike that perfect balance for all of our guests.. the young, the young at heart, the foodies, and the partiers. Everyone had a great time! It was non-stop fun!
Donna brought her many years of experience, patience, suggestions, advice, but most of all, her caring to make our daughter's wedding one of (if not THE) happiest days of our lives.
After all the numerous phone calls, emails, and planning over the past 10 months, that day, I was a guest. I had 100000% confidence in Donna and her staff that it would be a flawless event and it was!
Just some of the feedback we got from family and friends:
“The bar has been raised”
“Best wedding ever!”
“WOW.. just WOW’
One guest comment.. "great touch having one server per table”
A letter I got.. thanking us for inviting one guest (first time in my life I hear of anyone sending a thank you note for getting invited to a wedding).. "I have never been to a reception where the valet and the coat check people were gushing about how amazing the reception was going to be! They were spot on"
Impeccable service and a delicious meal thanks to Chef Franco.. One of our guests is a restaurant owner himself and commented at how impressed he was with the meal from start to finish.
If I could give Donna, Chef Franco, and the staff 10 stars, I would in a heartbeat. A wonderful experience from start to finish!!!
A great venue for a variety of occasions. Has undergone a great transformation the past couple of year to offer elegant ballrooms, classy/modern poolside areas, and great services.
It's always a pleasure to work with the staff, when we photograph a Wedding at The Providence Marriott. They know how important it is to work cohesively together to insure the best possible service to our Couples and their guests. They understand and respect how important it is for our photographers to capture those once in a lifetime moments.
Every time I work a Wedding at this venue I have a great experience. Donna and her staff always do a wonderful job, and the events go off without a hitch. The food and service is always very good.
