If you’re looking for a unique Providence, RI wedding venue, look no further. Hope Events on Main is amazing! Alyssa and Dave’s winter wedding shows how versatile the space is!
Alyssa and I met at a bridal show. She stood out to me right away because her and her family were so open and kind. I could tell they would be an amazing group to spend a wedding day with. Needless to say, I was stoked when I got an email from her!
Alyssa and Dave knew I was the photographer for them after reading what I love in my couples: laid back, quirky people, who want a wedding day just having fun with their closest friends and family. Everything else just fell in place from there.
Alyssa and Dave had their wedding at Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket, RI. Extra perk with this venue… my studio is there! Six hours of coverage was perfect for them since everything was going to be in the one location. While Alyssa finished getting ready in the bridal suite, the bridal party enjoyed the extra space of my studio to get dressed.
Alyssa’s gorgeous lace gown was by Allure Bridal from ThistleRose (Meg is awesome- go see her!) The gray bridesmaids gowns were classic and beautiful. I loved how simple and elegant everything looked together.
One of my favorite moments of the day was Alyssa getting ready with her daughter. As a mother myself, it was so emotional and specialty see the love between them.
While first looks aren’t mandatory, they do make the day flow much easier. Alyssa and Dave KNEW they wanted to enjoy cocktail hour at Breaktime Bowl & Bar, so they opted for a first look. With a large wedding party, we were able to get all photos done before the ceremony. I’m pretty sure the wedding party LOVED me for this! They could actually enjoy the wedding without worrying about any more formalities.
With Dj’s of Boston spinning tunes, the dance floor was packed all night. Everyone had an amazing time. The DJ team was SO MUCH FUN! Even though it was my first time working with them, I felt like I had known them for YEARS. Non stop fun and laughter, which is always a plus when you’re working!
Alyssa and Dave ended the night with PVD Donuts. I will NEVER get tired of donuts… especially of the PVD variety! They nailed every aspect of their wedding. It was absolutely perfect for them.
