Michelle + Devon’s Providence Public Library Wedding

By Mariah Ashley

We are absolutely smitten with Michelle and Devon’s Providence Public Library Wedding. The library is the perfect venue for a city-chic winter wedding. It’s so stunning inside the library that it doesn’t really matter what is happening outside. The photos will be spectacular no matter the weather! Lucky for us, we were blessed with amazing late afternoon  GOLDEN light, the kind that makes veils and the Snap Girls light up! For sure, we get very excited about late afternoon light! It’s dreamy.

Michelle is as clever as she is gorgeous so of course she planned for a first look so that she and Devon could have some portraits outdoors with the beautiful natural light.

We started our day at the Providence Biltmore for getting ready photos and the first look. The amazing floor to ceiling windows on the second floor of The Biltmore created a lovely spot for Devon to see his bride and for us to take some portraits of them.  After a bit of snapping inside the Biltmore we ventured out… it was a little chilly, but Michelle’s vintage shrug and handsome husband-to-be Devon kept her nice and toasty.

Then it was over to the Library for some family formals and the intimate ceremony. We couldn’t resist a few more photos after the ceremony because of course now Michelle and Devon were actually married! D + M enjoyed the rest of their evening toasting and dancing and canoodling. It was the perfect evening, a Providence Public Library Wedding never disappoints!

There’s the sun-in-the-veil phenomenon that we love so much. Hard to believe this is January!
