Providence Public Library
The Providence Public Library, presented by Russell Morin Catering & Events is a wedding venue located in Providence, Rhode Island. With historic architecture and dramatic skylights, this venue is perfect for a unique and romantic wedding. It is also located in the heart of downtown Providence, giving it a sense of luxury and city charm.
The Providence Public Library offers a magnificent event space, accessible through their historic Washington Street entrance. Built in 1878, the Library is a prime example of turn-of-the-century American architecture. It traces its architectural pedigree to the Sansovino’s Library in Venice and the Libraire de Ste. Genevieve in Paris, and still further back, the Italian palaces of the Renaissance period.
Your wedding rental will include the Ship Room, the Grand Hall and its indoor Courtyard, as well as a Newlywed Suite. In addition, you will have access to many gorgeous formal photography locations (including the book-stacks!) and a well-tuned Baby Grand Piano. These spaces are truly unique, and come complete with all of the necessary tables and chairs for the evening.
Your Russell Morin Event Managers will use their expertise to personalize a timeline, that will seemlessly guide your guests throughout our unique spaces.
