Vendor Spotlight On: Rhodes on the Pawtuxet

Rhode Island architectural icon, Rhodes on the Pawtuxet, under the new management of Russell Morin’s Catering & Events just received an expansive update highlighting its old-world beauty and rich history. Jessica Krasner, the on-site Sales & Event Coordinator tells us more

Tell us the history of Rhodes on the Pawtuxet.

In 1872 Thomas H. Rhodes started Rhodes on the Pawtuxet as a small collection of recreational buildings along the north bank of the Pawtuxet River where they would rent flatbed boats and hold clambakes. In 1880 Rhodes’ gazebo was built, it was once a waiting room for the passengers of horse-drawn carriages and streetcars, and remains standing today. In 1898 Rhodes expanded the original building to meet public demand. Thomas Jr., Edward and Arthur Rhodes — as Rhodes Brothers Inc. — enlarged the grounds and built a ballroom. Three years later a second new and larger Casino was built, the earlier one having already been out grown. A fire in a neighboring canoe house in February 1915 spread to the Rhodes complex, wiping out nearly everything. Five months later, a new ballroom, the current one, opened. In 1978 Rhodes on the Pawtuxet and the surviving structures was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2008 Rhodes on the Pawtuxet decided to allow Russell Morin Fine Catering & Events to begin selling Rhodes on the Pawtuxet as one of their own venues with a Sales Office on premise. In 2010 Rhodes on the Pawtuxet took the final step, by turning the keys over to Russell Morin’s Catering & Events allowing them to use their expertise in events to take Rhodes to the next level and have 100% control of the venues operations and facility itself.

What changes have been made to the venue over the years?

We have recently undergone a makeover, adding some beautiful ornate chandeliers and repainting the trim around the original mural that showcases our big beautiful bar in our Foyer space, as well as brand new fabric draping and bistro lighting to complement our neutral gorgeous ballroom that still features over 10,000 square ft. of original hardwood floors and our beautiful wraparound balconies.

What services do you provide?

With one of New England’s premier caterers managing our space, we provide amazing, customizable menus. We do handle all linen and table/ chair rental needs, as well as offering inclusive enhancement packages that includes amazing vendors, such as florists, entertainment and photographers. We really are a one stop shop!

How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?

Most couples typically book a year to two years out, but since we have all-inclusive packages we can help create a stress-free wedding for couples looking to plan a wedding within a very short period as well.

What is one piece of advice you give to brides?

It’s ok to have a season in mind for your wedding, but I always suggest finding the right venue that is meant for you first and then have some flexibility with the date. It could be a missed opportunity on finding the perfect venue because your heart is set on one particular date. Also, once you find the right venue, I think it’s easier to decide on a color scheme or them for your wedding. On that same note, having flexibility is key. If you are flexible and are willing to consider off-season wedding dates, such as in January or February or even during the week, this would potentially save you lots of money, give you an equally as beautiful wedding and you will not have to share the spotlight with those 4 other couples you know getting married in June or October!

Hazel, Saffron, and Sky — Styled Shoot

A fresh take on an autumn color palette consisting of hazel, saffron, and sky blue hues is brought to life through elegant flora and delicious culinary creations for this styled shoot at Waterman Grille.

Inspired by the autumn kissed sea grass that surrounded the balcony at Waterman Grille, Kim Lamothe of greenlion design began designing her arrangements. “We included worn gold, berries, vines, and subtle shades of turned witch-hazel leaves to add soft yellow to the cream blooms,” she described. Ivory chiffon draping fashioned by Ryan Designs shaded the balcony where the ceremony would take place. Golden sea grass lined the aisles of wooden benches that overlooked the river. The gorgeous view continued into the dining room where floor to ceiling windows flooded the space with a serene glow. The table was set with sky blue linen, earthy floral arrangements, and dark blue tapers encased in crystal vases; ready for the savory four-course dinner prepared by Waterman Grille.
