We are so happy we chose the Marconi to host our wedding on May 26th. Kirsten Mitchell and Samantha Michaels were so helpful and dedicated to making our wedding day one to remember. We reserved the venue well in advance, and met with them on site multiple times to coordinate and plan all the details, including the menu. We had our ceremony and reception here, and could not recommend it more! Every one of our guests loved the venue, loved the party and loved the food. Their on site catering service, White House Catering, was SUBERB. Kristin Coats did an amazing job with the menu for the evening and our special desserts of donuts and shooters. The food was amazing, particularly considering we had over 100 guests. The bartending staff was super nice and made excellent drinks and accommodated everyone. The best part about the Marconi is in addition to all the great cars, they have everything there on site (catering, bar service, waitstaff, valet, photo booth - even a red carpet). The acoustics are excellent and despite initially appearing like a "single room" venue, our guests were able to spread out across the race shop and race slot cars, dance the night away in the main museum space, grab drinks at the bar or relax outside on really nice lounge furniture where we had a cigar bar and corn hole game with a Ferrari in the background.Sent on 07/03/2018
There was truly something for everyone and we were beyond impressed with the impeccable service and CARE they provided us throughout the day and evening. The best part is all their profits go to benefit charity (locally disadvantaged kids) which was a huge bonus to us, and really shined through the pride of the entire staff. If you want a great automotive themed venue that wont break the bank and will be sure to impress, look no further than the Marconi. It is PURE CLASS. You will not be disappointed!
