The Palace at Somerset Park is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The grounds are absolutely stunning, and the indoor spaces are as regal as a real-life palace. We had both our ceremony and our reception here, and they were both beautiful. Our recent November wedding at The Palace was INCREDIBLE, and the majority of that credit goes to their amazing, attentive, and dedicated staff. Our wedding planner, Kara, was always available (even on her days off) and went out of her way to make sure every detail was taken care of. Our Maitre D, Richard, and bridal attendant, Jordan, made they day run so smoothly and took care of every little detail. When my Father-in-Law's bowtie broke, Jordan was there to fix it. When I needed to change my shoes, Richard was on the floor helping me tie my laces. They took care of EVERYTHING so that my husband and I could enjoy every minute of our wedding. The food is OUTRAGEOUS, and our guests could not stop talking about how delicious (and how abundant) the food was throughout the night. I also had a guest who told me that our wedding cake (which was a custom design, created by their pastry chef) was the most delicious cake they've ever eaten! Booking your wedding at The Palace is worth every penny, and I wish we could do it all over again, just to relive the magical experience!

Perfection, magical, guests told us this was the best wedding they have ever been to.
We just got married at The Palace this past Saturday and it was honestly, magical. Everyone there made us feel so special. More specifically, Jose who we booked with, Alexandra who was our assigned (all included) wedding planner, Stephany (our bridal attendant), and Josh Weis (our Maitre D) were all EXCELLENT. From the initial tour of the venue to the tasting (which literally was an event in itself) to the actual wedding, we were floored. They were all extremely professional and kind. I emailed our bridal assistant Alexandra multiple times a day, every day, the last month leading up to the wedding and she was extremely responsive, usually answering within a few minutes! She put us at ease the entire time. The tasting included everything from the cocktail hour to the main entrees and cake, as well as wines and specialty cocktails too. The actual wedding was perfect. We got married in the winter so our ceremony was in the Grand Foyer with the beautiful staircase. Alexandra and Josh helped us plan the actual ceremony and we had multiple guests tell us it was the most beautiful and dramatic ceremony they had ever been to. All of the guests also raved about the food, we were told it also was the best they've ever had. Cake was delicious. Venetian hour included bananas foster that was literally lit up. Stephany and Josh were by our side for literally every and any need. Including bathroom breaks and band aids. Thank you all for such an epic wedding for my wife and I!!!!

Best venue ever - book now
We recently got married on 1/12/2019. From the start of the planning cycle with Jose, to the meetings with our event planner, Alex, the service was on point. They worked with us every step of the way, and were very personable. They offered advice and always made us feel comfortable. The wedding day was AMAZING. The crew at The Palace is top notch - highly recommend Maya (bridal attendant) and Richard (Maitre D). They took care of us all day and were on top of everything - we did not worry about a thing. We could not have asked for more. Our friends and family also had a fabulous time, and cannot stop raving about the venue and the food ;).
The Palace at Somerset Park was one of our most favorite venues to work at. The staff is so efficient there and the maitre'd, Richard, and bridal assistant, Latonya, worked together flawlessly and were so easy to work with ourselves. They helped us flow through portraits all while keeping the bride and groom from seeing each other before the ceremony. The Palace is beautiful and the food is amazing. Can we work here every weekend? ;)
Excellent venue. Great staff and food.
Wonderful venue to work at! Amazing staff, professional and simply one of a kind!
