We are Rhode Island wedding photographers who love sharing wedding planning tips and advice on how to have an incredible, alternative wedding day! First stop, wedding venue shopping…

Hope Events on Main is located just outside of Providence, RI in the city of Pawtucket. It’s located inside of a restored mill building that’s also home to the Hope Artiste Village. It delivers on those industrial exposed brick and concrete vibes with tons of natural light! The main event space is pretty much a blank slate so you can go understated and let the brick speak for itself or zhuzh it up with lighting, colorful florals, and fun table and chair settings. The ceremony can take place in between some of the shops and artist loft spaces or in the main event space on the dance floor area. And for cocktail hour, you can have access to the most stunning old school bowling alley and bar for your guests to enjoy apps and entertainment while the golden light streams in. It’s seriously our favorite part of the venue!

And another great thing about Hope Events on Main? They’re an LGBTQ+ friendly wedding venue. Even one of the coordinators is queer! HELL YEAH! So if you’re looking for a wedding venue in Providence, RI and coming up short, consider this gem that’s basically in Providence’s backyard and still enjoy taking photos and having guest accommodations in downtown.
