Absolutely amazing from start to finish!
The Palace was absolutely incredible! From start to finish, they made our experience truly remarkable. We knew very soon into our wedding planning process that we chose the right venue. Everyone at The Palace was responsive and accommodating. Jose gave us the most detailed tour and answered every question we had. Alexandra was amazing when it came to helping us sort out every detail throughout the year of planning. The day of our wedding the entire staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a beautiful, seamless day. Our Maitre D, David, was out of this world. I could not picture someone else being by our side that day. He made sure everything was going according to plan and was also so genuine toward us. My bridal attendant, Maya, was the cherry on top of an already outstanding experience with The Palace. She was beyond accommodating. She helped make sure everyone in the bridal suite was well taken care of all day long and well into the evening. Honestly, I could go on and on about how incredible everyone was at The Palace. We are so grateful to each and every person to helped make our day perfect. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was choosing The Palace as our venue.Sent on 09/01/2019

The Palace Made our wedding day Perfect!
What an amazing wedding day we had at The Palace. We were extremely impressed as to how every detail of our wedding was attended to. Our whole experience from the day we visited the Palace to the last minute of our wedding day was fantastic. The professionalism from everyone at the palace is impeccable. Jose guided us through initial process and was respectful, helpful and warm. Then our wedding planner Traci-Joan took over and did an incredible job. She always took the time to immediately answer all our phone calls/emails. She made us feel at ease and relaxed. She assured us that everything would go as planned. And she was 100% right! Richard was our Maitre'D and we are so grateful to him for making our day a dream come true. He was there for every possible detail; I don't think there is anything he can't handle. He seems to master coordinating every aspect that goes into making your wedding day perfect. Our guest are still raving of how amazing our wedding was; from the beautiful, elegant Palace inside and out, to the incredible food and drinks and of course the Viennese ROOM. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Palace for truly making our wedding day so special. We highly recommend The Palace for any occasion. we can't wait to go back!Sent on 09/15/2019

The palace is the best
From start to finish - I have only incredible things to say about my experience with The Palace for our wedding! From the moment we stepped into The Palace, we felt it was the one. We had our initial appointment with Kara. She was super friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Kara did such a good job showing off The Palace that we thought we would never be able to afford it because it is just SO beautiful. It turned out The Palace was very affordable and I love that they include everything - amazing cocktail hour passed foods and plenty of unique stations you get to choose from, Viennese hour...no annoying packages that other venues do! Kara was then appointed our planner who helped us with any questions we had throughout the planning process. She was super prompt in responding to emails and very helpful. She also helped us schedule our tasting. The tasting was great and really confirmed we made the right choice going with The Palace. Throughout the planning process, The Palace offers specials on their social media so be on the look out if you book with them! We got quite a few extras for a discounted price such as the personalized monogram and the intelligent lighting. I would definitely recommend the intelligent lighting! Even our DJ said any equipment they have doesn’t hold a candle to the intelligent lighting. The Palace does a great job scheduling the meetings necessary to discuss every detail of your wedding - without being overwhelming or stressful. My husband and I always felt at ease with The Palace staff. We met with Kara after our tasting to confirm our menu selections and a few other details. We then met our maitre d David at our final planning meeting. David went through EVERY detail of our ceremony and reception, giving us advice, offering recommendations, and confirming our choices along the way. We just knew we were in great hands. On the big day, we were impressed yet again with the service of the entire Palace staff but especially David our maitre d and Carmela the bridal attendant. They were so in tune to every detail of our wedding and made sure everything went smoothly. They we’re constantly checking in and always made sure we had a drink in hand :) It was pretty hot that day and throughout photos outside, Carmela and David always had napkins and cold water ready for us. Both of them checked in to make sure all our decorations were placed exactly how I wanted them. When my bustle broke (I was really breaking it down on the dance floor), David and Carmela were on it and pinned it up immediately. David and Carmela sent us home with lots of food - a plate of each meal, Viennese offerings, slices of our cake...we had it all for dinner the next day! They also packed our car perfectly; everything was neatly arranged just as I had packed. I know that there was a lot of behind the scenes work that David and Carmela and the whole Palace staff coordinated to make our day perfect. They were in constant communication the entire day, for example: to make sure I didn’t see my groom before our first look, to assure that the timing was working out, to check in that everything was running smoothly for our ceremony and reception. It really showed because our guests raved about everything - especially the food and service! To sum it up, The Palace staff are true professionals! Whatever your wedding vision may be, The Palace will make your dreams a reality.Sent on 08/12/2019
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!
