Candid Providence Public Library Wedding


Leah and Steve were married at a Candid Providence Public Library Wedding.  It was on a rainy day last fall.    I have to say, while it rained, it was still one of the most beautiful weddings I have photographed in Providence RI in a long time.  I had never been to the Providence Public library for a wedding, but I can’t wait to go back!

Leah got ready at the Biltmore Hotel down the street and then headed off to the Providence Public Library for her first look.    Her make up was done by the amazing Tamar of Fab Browz   I have known Tamar for a long time and her make up is just incredible!  Leah looked amazing and Steve was so handsome!

I loved her light blue shoes for something “blue”.  a pair of light blue shoes sits on the headboard at the Providence Biltmore Hotel with a blue wall and a mirror above them

After Leah had her make up done and dress on, we then drove over to the Providence Public Library for her first look.  First we had to get her into the library without getting soaked!

I love this first look!    Leah walked up the stairs of the library and Steve had his back turned! When asked he turned around.

This might be my favorite photo from the entire day.  This was not staged.  Everyone gathered around and was watching the couple finalize their marriage Black and White photo of bride and groom signing Ketubah
On our way to the stacks we came across this red wall and I asked the couple to stand in front of it first.

The Providence Public Library is a wonderful location for any event, especially a wedding.  They have tons of space for a large number of people.  People can stand in the upper balcony and look down on the dance floor giving people a really unique perspective.

One of the photos the couple really wanted was the two of them in front of the Library. Who can resist this with the arches! A bride and groom stand in front of the Providence Public Library

We were so luck that we had enough time to have a first look and ceremony and then come outside for some photos to show off the building. The entire location is just amazing!
