Wedding at Roger Williams Botanical Gardens

Providence, Rhode Island

There are lots of great things to see in Providence, and Roger Williams Park and Zoo is certainly a highlight. Did you know that there was a Botanical Center in Roger Williams? It's actually the largest glass-housed display garden in all of New England, with four year-round greenhouses! It's an absolutely lovely place to visit on any normal day, but if you are looking for a Providence wedding venue, you've found an amazing hidden gem.

What's Inside the Botanical Gardens?

There are a wide variety of plants placed in beautifully landscaped arrangements. They have everything from 40-foot tall palm trees, cacti, and a variety of succulents. From June through September, they have an amazing rose maze. At every turn, there are stunning colors. In addition, they have an assortment of statues, stone structures, ponds and fountains. It's everything you could want for the perfect wedding day!

The Perfect Rhode Island Wedding Venue

I've said a lot about the Roger Williams Botanical Gardens wedding facility. I didn't really have to, though. Just looking at these wedding photographs should be enough to convince you that this venue is worth a look. I have photographed a lot of weddings, and this wedding and wedding venue is by far one of my favorites. The amazing thing is that these photos are just from the ceremony. I'll do another wedding blog post with photos of the reception.

Engagement Photos

Roger Williams Botanical Gardens is also a fantastic place to have your engagement photos taken. At the moment, they charge a $150 fee to use the facility for engagement photos (or other types of portrait sessions).
