About Us

For the most memorable and personal wedding experience, reach for the stars at Gracie’s – the perfect, romantic venue for your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner.

At Gracie’s, our guests take center stage with a philosophy focused on surprising and exciting them with extraordinary personal care and service, and on treating them to culinary creations made with the freshest ingredients. Located in the cultural hub of the beautifully restored downtown Providence, Gracie’s is decorated intimately with rich woodwork, golden-hued walls that stretch to towering ceilings, fabrics emitting romance and tables that glisten in warm candlelight.

But the real beauty in Gracie’s goes far deeper than what the eye can behold and the palate can enjoy. At Gracie’s, Owner Ellen Gracyalny and her exceptional staff are motivated by one central goal: creating memories that last a lifetime. And for brides and grooms and their guests, it is the special touches and unmatched attention to detail that Gracie’s incorporates into everything they do, which sets them apart as the optimal venue for events driven by love.

Over the years, Gracie’s has worked closely with brides-to-be and their fiancés to create events that cater to their every whim and resonate as a reflection of each couple’s personalities and passions. Rooms have been transformed to represent a special moment in time, menus have been tailored to include favorites of the couple and their families, and recommendations have been made for floral displays and entertainment – based on Gracie’s knowledge of the couple and their relationships with top quality vendors. Gracie’s also has the experience of hosting cultural weddings that lead to exceptional occasions leaving every wish fulfilled.

“When we open our doors to welcome brides-to-be and their fiancés to Gracie’s, we want them to cast their worries aside, communicate their dreams and then let us tailor a rehearsal dinner or wedding reception that will create timeless moments and exceed their expectations,” said Gracyalny.

She added, “We leave nothing to chance and will bend over backwards to learn everything we can about the couples we’re working with so we can understand their vision and create an occasion that is unique to them.”

Gracie’s offers several rooms that are available for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and even bridal showers. Our main dining room serves as a perfect location for larger receptions, holding up to one hundred guests. Our private dining room downstairs serves as a perfect location for groups of up to 50 for dinner and 70 for cocktail receptions. And for very small and intimate occasions, our private wine room seats up to ten guests.

Come visit us at Gracie’s to experience first-hand the setting for an array of elegant, sophisticated and successful wedding events. We are committed to working with you right from the beginning to assist you in shaping and fulfilling the event of your dreams.
