We couldn’t wait to be a part of Lizzy and Ben’s wedding at the Providence Public Library. We just LOVE Lizzy! But who doesn’t? We are lucky to work with Lizzy every time we have a Providence Public Library wedding because she is the Sales and Event manager. When she’s working she’s laid back, friendly, organized, sweet, efficient, and helpful… so we wondered, “What would Lizzy be like as a bride?” Answer: BEAUTIFUL + laid back, friendly, organized, sweet, efficient, and helpful!
Lizzy totally enjoyed her wedding- she didn’t stress or sweat over anything! That’s amazing! I know how hard it is to relax once you “know a little too much” about an industry. Not Lizzy though, she breezed through her day with a great big smile on her face. Easy to see why, Ben is so handsome and just as kind. Lizzy and Ben are perfectly matched this way.
For two such quality people as Lizzy and Ben, it was only fitting that we donate the proceeds from their wedding to Operation Smile, Lizzy and Ben saved 4 smiles when they booked us! That’s four sweet little faces that received life changing surgeries to repair facial deformities such as cleft lip or palette. Thank you so much Lizzy and Ben for making that possible! Your gift truly has made a a huge impact in the lives of four lucky children.
Lizzy had some help of course making her wedding so lovely. Russell Morin Catering and Events is the official PPL caterer and the as usual the food was scrumptious! John Orton Events did all of the lovely florals, and always knocks it out of the park.
Lizzy and Ben got ready at the Hotel Providence right around the corner from the Library.

Shakespeare is from TEN31 Productions.There are a lot of stairs at the Library which makes for very dramatic entrances and exits!
