    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!

    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!!
