Perfection! PPL was the perfect reception location for our 'mini-destination' wedding. All of our guests were from out of town, and everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how much they loved the separation of cocktail hour/dining room/ dance floor (which is one of the reasons we chose it, other than its beauty). The dance floor is perfect for introductions and dancing all night without the awkward feeling that people are just sitting at their tables watching you act a fool.
Lisa Nightingale is a saint. Without her I don't know how I could have pulled any of it off. I liked her so much that I hired her as our day-of coordinator (through Russell Morins). She was always so happy and made everyone that was part of our wedding very much at ease. I honestly felt like I was talking with a longtime friend, and to me that's comforting in itself.
The food was AMAZING. From the steaks, to the wild mushroom ravioli and desserts, each of my guests that I talked to raved about all the dishes (shrimp neptune being the real showstopper). The staff was all so great and seemed genuinely happy to be there helping us. Even some girls working in the kitchen that had to walk through the dance floor actually danced through the dance floor with all of us, haha, everyone loved that. Our personal butler was the cherry on top, seriously, I always had a drink in my hand, didn't have to ask twice for anything, and most of the time I didn't even have to ask for anything at all, it's like she read my mind.
This venue is perfect in every way and worth every penny. Everything went by smoothly and the day was perfect. 10 stars.

I cannot say enough good things about the library and Russell Morin catering. From the time we booked the library in May 2016, Lisa was there for everything we needed even if we did have a year and a half before the wedding! When Kacey came on board we began communicating more with her. She was extremely responsive to emails, answered even what I thought were silly questions, and gave reccomendations from her experience. October 2017 came quick and at our final meeting I knew we were in good hands with Kacey. She is AMAZING! The day of the wedding was better then my husband and I could have ever imagined. Everything ran smoothly and our guests are still raving about the decor and the amazing food. Kacey did an amazing job keeping the flow going and making sure everything was on point. All of our vendors were amazing as well. They all worked together to make sure the night ran smoothly. If you are contemplating the library for your wedding, DO IT. it was the best decision my husband and I ever made. Thank you Providence Public Library for the most amazing wedding day and memories to last a lifetime.
