Vendor Spotlight On: Chapel Grille

Vendor Spotlight is on the Chapel Grille; a historical property located in Cranston, RI converted into an upscale restaurant and event space.

1. How did your business come to be?

The chapel, now the Chapel Grille, is part of American History! Sitting among the grounds of the former training school the property dates back to 1638 when it was deeded to the Westcott Family from Roger Williams and later sold to the State of RI in 1869. If you visit the Cathedral Bar you will see portraits of Priscilla and Stuckely Wescott III.  In 1866, a state Board of Charities and Corrections was established and their initiative was to create a campus that would raise standards for the indigent. This Institutionalization would create a better, more organized environment where these young individuals would develop new habits of industry to prepare themselves for honest and productive lives. Carpionato Group purchased the property in 1999 and has transformed it into a unparalleled lifestyle center.

The chapel, built in 1891, and its infirmary addition administered the necessary spiritual and physical healing needed by the wayward youth. Originally designed by the Rhode Island based architectural firm of Stone, Carpenter and Wilson, it is one of the more handsome buildings on the property. With the direction and oversight of The Cranston Historic District Commission and The Rhode Island Historic Preservation & Heritage Commission Carpionato Group has preserved as much of the historic buildings as possible. The end result has created a breathtaking venue at every turn from the inside out.

2. What are the services you offer?

Chapel Grille offers 4 different rooms for private events, each space provides a backdrop like no other.  In addition to boutique weddings, we specialize in bridal/baby showers, rehearsal dinners, social celebrations and corporate events. We offer menus that can be customized to suit your budget including plated dinner and lunch menus, buffets and cocktail reception options.

3. Where are you located?

Chapel Grille is an easy-to-find oasis of culinary excellence, conveniently located in Cranston, RI,  off the major highways and offering complimentary valet parking. It’s interior is expansive, welcoming and comfortable.

4. How far in advance do you recommend your clients to book?

We recommend booking as soon as possible, however there have been numerous occasions that we have put together weddings in a 48 hour time period.

5. What is one piece of advice you give to brides?

Create an event that is reflective of you as a couple. Make decisions based on what you both love, what feels right to you, and try to stick to it without having anyone’s opinions interfere.

Pale Ocean & Champagne – Color Theory

The Boston Harbor Hotel offers unparalleled views of the harbor, coinciding perfectly with Laura’s longtime love of pale ocean and gray.

When developing her color story Laura wanted to keep it classic and enhance the beauty surrounding the Boston Harbor Hotel. Round tables in crisp white linen accompanied by white chiavari chairs filled the ballroom. Champagne hued arrangements with pops of pale blue flora brought color and dimension to the table design. 360 degree floor to ceiling windows allowed beautiful, natural light to flood the ballroom and make the guests feel as though they were dining outside. Every area of the Boston Harbor Hotel provides a breathtaking backdrop for photos from the rotunda to the iconic arch to the grand staircase beneath the dome skylight. The color story was maintained through all elements of the day including the wedding cake prepared by the hotel.
