    Amazing wedding!

    The Ivy Room is an amazing wedding venue! We had Leslie and Kiran as our day of coordinators and they were a dream to work with. Ivy Room makes the process so easy and responds promptly. We booked the venue right before COVID shut down and have dealt with the COVID regulations. Ivy Room was so transparent and willing to work with us due to COVID rules ever changing. They work with all your vendors to coordinate day of, they help with day of timelines, and think of all the small details and questions so there is not a thing to worry about day of! We were blown away by our wedding. We had our ceremony and cocktail outside which were unforgettable and the reception inside the ballroom. It was perfection. The staff is so professional and willing to help. The food (and food tasting) are divine and beyond delicious. We received so many compliments about the venue and how it was a flawless day. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the Ivy Room and our experience. Highly recommend this venue!

    The perfect venue

    We are so grateful that we chose to have our wedding at the Ivy Room! The team truly went above and beyond to make the day special and stress-free for us. From the food to decor to the coordination amongst vendors, Natalie (our day of coordinator), Kiran, and the whole team made our day a perfect one. We initially chose the Ivy Room with a vision for an outdoor ceremony looking at the big ivy wall, and when it became clear that rain would make that impossible, we were initially very disappointed. But Natalie and the team transformed the indoor space, threw open the wall of doors to the courtyard, and made the venue a magical space for the evening. The way the space came together was better than we had ever imagined. And we still snuck outside for photos and a sparkler exit too.

    If you're considering the Ivy Room as your venue, know that you'll be in great hands with their team. (And definitely get the package with a day-of coordinator from the Ivy Room!)

    Perfect venue, food, & coordinator - everything you are looking for is right here!

    HUMANS GETTING MARRIED! If you are looking for a STUNNING venue, INCREDIBLE food, and the best damn wedding coordinator known to man, stop looking - you will find all of these things with The Ivy Room. The venue is gorgeous on its own, so anything you add on to it will just enhance the natural beauty this place offers - we had both our ceremony and reception here. The courtyard is beautiful, there are a ton of hotels close by, and there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to weather - it rained on our wedding day, we were intended to have the cocktail hour outside, but there is a full bar and cocktail area downstairs that works perfectly! And THE FOOD!!! The Ivy Room caters in-house, and it is incredible - all of our guests LOVED the meal!! Every single person that helped serve our guests during our wedding was extremely friendly, professional, and uplifting, from the bartenders to the kitchen to the servers. Most importantly, you need a day-of coordinator, and Leslie knocked this out of the park. My husband and I raved to everyone we knew about how incredible Leslie was, and when they met her everyone agreed. She was kind, EXTREMELY on top of her sh*t, and ensured the entire wedding ran smoothly - which it did. The entire day was quite literally perfect, and I attest so much of that to Leslie. She was so helpful with the planning beforehand, met with us multiple times, and filled in all the holes that we didn't even know existed.On top of that, she is a lovely woman and SO easy to work with, we were always laughing and felt like we had known her forever. Brides and Grooms, this venue takes the cake when it comes to the best of the best and it is worth every single penny. Thank you dearly to The Ivy Room and to Leslie for the best day of our lives. We cannot rave about you guys enough.

As a wedding photographer, having the right venue for a wedding is so crucial to beautiful images. The Ivy Room is no exception! It's an absolutely stunning place - from it's jaw-dropping courtyard and wall of ivy to its beautiful reception room, this is one of my favorite places to shoot! Not to mention that the staff is more than friendly and accommodating. After shooting 3 weddings here this year, each wedding is prettier than the last! They continue to wow me with how gorgeous this place is and just all the possibilities to dress it up to make it unique to each couple!
