NYE 2018 - A Night to Remember
We held our wedding at The Gershon Fox Ballroom with Marquee Events this past New Year's Eve - and to say that it was perfect was an understatement. Kara and the entire team went out of their way to make our Great Gatsby-themed wedding everything we asked for. Kara walked us through every pre-wedding step, made herself available when we needed it most, didn't miss any of the minute details leading up to or on the day of, and she was so easy to work with in achieving our dream wedding. Her team's execution on setting everything up, to the layout, organization, and ability to work with our amazing vendors made the evening run so smoothly. The food and drinks were better than any of the venues we visited, and the team's hospitality was superb. The accommodations that were made for us in regard to food allergies were taken with the utmost care and consideration - they truly went out of their way to meet our needs. We had quite a large wedding, but the spaces available were better and way more unique, than any venue we visited. Between cocktail hour in the mezzanine; the long front hallway for coffee, desserts, & our cigar bar; the dance floor in the main foyer (with tables and seating surrounding); a smaller dance floor inside the dining room; and a space cordoned off outside as a smoking & cigar lounge made the experience feel like an actual party that Jay Gatsby would have thrown. We strongly recommend looking into using this space for any event (especially a larger wedding). The character, ambiance, history, and brilliance with which it's taken care of with Kara and the rest of the events team is of such high quality. Because of them, our wedding will never be forgottenSent on 04/24/2019

Book your wedding here!
I can't think of anything that could have gone better for our wedding venue with Marquee. The entire process from start to finish was first class. Kara walked us hand and hand through the entire planning process and was always more than willing to meet our requests. I know first hand this can be stressful time, but Kara handled everything like an experienced professional. This help ease all of our fears. The ceremony was elegant, and set up perfectly. The reception went off better than we could have hoped. Food and service was top notch. Again, Kara was there with us to make sure everything went off as we hoped. I would recommend the Gershon Fox Ballroom to any who is looking for a great venue, with a great atmosphere, and amazing customer service for their wedding venue!Sent on 04/25/2019

Best Choice we made
I have no regrets about booking my wedding here. Kara, the wedding and event coordinator, did a fantastic job at meeting all of our needs, in fact she often surpassed them! Her support staff was polite, cordial, and professional. They were attentive to our guests needs and often went above and beyond the call of duty! Booking through the Marquee was one of my best choices!Sent on 01/09/2019
