    The most perfect venue

    I could not pick a more perfect or convenient place to get married. They helped us every step of the way and were so amazing to work with. From the owners, to the servers and doorman, every single person there is so nice and accommodating. Not only us, but every single guest after raved about the venue and their staff. Plus we could have the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party all in one building, plus walk across the street to the beautiful updated hotel. Everything was so convenient and they made the day stress free (which says everything). The food is outstanding and the cocktail hour will blow your guests away. I can't thank Mike and the staff there enough for truly bringing our dream wedding to life. If you have any doubts, go there, see it in person, and talk to Mike and you will fall in love with Franklin Plaza instantly.

    You need to get married here

    My husband and I would get married here a million times if we could. It was so amazing from the planning process to the actual day. Greg and his team were more hospitable and accommodating then I could ever imagine possible. We felt so at ease during the planning process and during the wedding weekend because the Franklin Plaza staff truly takes care of everything for you. We had our ceremony, reception, and after party all at FP and it was so convenient for guests (there's a hotel directly across the street as well, so no shuttles needed). It is truly a one-stop-shop!! Your special day will be even more amazing with all that FP has to offer.

    The best in the business

    Where to start… Michael Fusco and his team at Franklin Plaza made wedding planning a breeze. They have everything down to a science and their staff is the absolute BEST in the business. Michael guided us with his expert advice, guided us through the ever-changing protocols of COVID, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. From the intimate dining room to the incredible rooftop bar. Franklin Plaza takes care of EVERYTHING. The week of the wedding, I dropped off EXTRA décor, our favors, cake stand, toasting glasses, etc. They took care of all the set-up and it looked stunning. Their menu gave us a variety of options to choose from, and each and everything on that menu is DELICIOUS. The staff is always kind and want to make sure everyone is happy and taken care of. Which brings us to our Maitre’d and Head Waiter. By the end of the night, we felt like they were part of our friends and family. They made sure we were taken care of all night long including making sure our drinks were always full and make sure we were able to taste everything we wanted to on the menu. We highly recommend Franklin Plaza to all our family and friends! They are worth every penny and MORE! Thank you Michael and the whole Franklin Plaza staff! Looking forward to go back soon!

I absolutely love working at the Franklin Plaza Ballroom. I know that any wedding here is going to be a top-notch affair. The space is elegant and beautiful, and the staff is stellar. They know what you (as the bride and groom) need before you do. Your drink glass will never be empty, and you'll never have to wonder where the Franklin Plaza staff are. They will be wherever you need them to be.
