Essex is simply the best!

The Essex club is simply the best. Jessica worked with me for several months to ensure I booked my perfect date. I know no one else does that! Unlike so many other wedding locations I visited, there are no hidden fees or gimmicks to worry about. Communication is clear, concise and timely. She offered me so much wise guidance every single time! The vendors that are part of the packages are incredible. I worked with Dalsmier for the flowers and they stayed within my budget and brought the most beautiful fresh flowers & decor. Park avenue for photos offered a competitive package and captured our day beautifully! I had to plan my wedding in only two months and without Jessica and the team, this would have never happened. The day of, I had a few scares (from vendors not in the package) and Jessica came right in to handle my nerves and make my wedding day just perfect. I loved my incredibly sweet and knowledgeable bridal attendant and super helpful Maitre D. I had 7 children in my wedding party and he knew just how to handle it all. The venue is just gorgeous and my guests loved about the venue, the food and drinks & the service. They have bilingual staff, which made my family so comfortable. If you are looking for a beautiful venue, with incredible staff and no hassle communication, Essex is your place. I want to have my 10 year anniversary there and can only hope Jessica is still leading the way!

My perfect wedding at the Essex Club!

The moment I walked into the Essex Club I knew that my wedding was going to be there. Starting with Lauren my sales rep and event coordinator, she was such a sweet person during my first visit and took her time to explain everything and answer all my questions. Then Jessica the venue manager, she was as amazing as Lauren. She was professional and very responsive. Lauren and Jessica made my wedding planning feel like a breeze. Going with their petite wedding package (including recommended vendors) made my planning so much easier. All the recommended vendors were amazing and exceeded my expectations. Also, the wedding package is one of the most affordable you will find in New York, and it is totally worthy.

Now onto the day of my wedding, Rob the maître d was AMAZING. He took care of everything, and the event flowed without any hiccups. My guests kept talking about how organized the wedding was. And Ana, my bridal attendant also did a great job. Not only did she help me and my husband throughout the night but also helped us with translating from English to Spanish to my parents who do not speak English. Ana and Rob also did an amazing Job at bustling my dress. It was so difficult to do and took some time, but it came out beautiful. I got compliments about the way my dress was bustled during the night.

All the staff was amazing. My guests truly enjoyed the food and the drinks. People loved the taco bar for the cocktail hour and the short ribs for our plated dinner. Everything looked classy and amazing, and everybody felt well taken care of.

The only regret I have was not going for their regular wedding package for 100 people. I ended up way over the guest count for the petite package which is 50 people and had to pay extra for a few things to accommodate the extra people. Their regular package would have probably been cheaper. Lauren had recommended for this to me, and I wished I listened to her. A piece of advice, listen to what they recommend you. The have been in the wedding business for years and they know better.

Finally, a big Thanks to the Essex club for making my planning process stress-free and my wedding day so special!
