We just had our wedding last night at Sixty State Place, the venue was amazing!! We originally booked with Melissa when the venue was being built and she came to help out on our wedding day as well and did a great job for us. Deanna was our head coordinator for planning and she shined for us and made our day super special, she worked around all of our needs and wants, while keeping up with a large wedding party!, she was super patient with guests, the bride and our family and did an amazing job of organizing for us. The venue is super nice and unique, we had our rehearsal dinner on friday night there as well. The ceremony took place in the main ball room, we then moved downstairs to the vault area for a super unique cocktail hour. We then went back to the main ball room for our reception and the place looked amazing. We had our wedding and rehearsal dinner catered by Birch Hill, they did an awesome job of setting up, and flipping the room while also having amazing food, and there was tons of it!! We partied all night long to the early morning hours and had a blast!! Sixty State Place provides such a great spot for unique picture opportunities being right in downtown Albany and then inside the venue as well. We couldn't have asked for a better venue and wedding night!! Sixty State Place rocked!! Thank you so much!!!Sent on 07/13/2014

It doesn’t get any better
Where to begin? Ruggerios catered our wedding at the Mansion at Cedar Hill in Selkirk. We can’t express how grateful we were for Joe and his crew. Not only are they all around great people, they are super easy to work with. The food- OUTSTANDING. We go to their shop in Guilderland frequently so we already knew they make quality food- however, they took it to another level. It has been over a week since our wedding and we are still getting phone calls and messages raving about how great the food was. Our venue did not provide a kitchen or even a kitchen space, yet Ruggerios still provided fresh, hot food for us and our 100 guests. Their catering staff and bartenders were so friendly and accommodating. We can’t recommend Ruggerios enough! THANK YOU JOE!Sent on 07/29/2019

I HIGHLY recommend having your wedding at Sixty State Place! Joe and his staff exceeded our expectations and made our special day perfect. They are professional and personable. It was a calm, enjoyable experience for my husband and myself. The elegance of the ballroom was stunning. Cocktail hour is still being spoke highly by all of our guests. Plus the pictures that you and your significant other can get of the actual venue itself are timeless! This will forever be a day that my husband and I will never forget. Thank you again for everything!!Sent on 08/20/2018
