We had our wedding at the Palace this past November and although we had to cut our guest list basically in half, we had the most perfect day. During the planning process, the Palace was so accommodating and flexible. Our wedding planner Alex F and the director of catering Jose were the people we planned most of our wedding through. They were always readily available for answer questions and talk about the next steps in regards to our wedding. They always emailed or called us back super fast. This team is very dependable and understanding.
They will work with you to get anything you want or need for your wedding day. The Palace takes care of any concerns and lets you just enjoy your way as a bride and groom.
My mom, sister, bridesmaids, and in laws were obsessed with the bridal suite. It was perfect, clean, and spacious. That should be a selling point for you guys, I have been in 7 weddings prior to my own and nothing measured up to the Palace's bridal suite. My husband also was able to arrive at the venue early and get ready with his groomsmen which he really appreciated. Usually there are not any designated areas for the groom and friends to get ready at venues.
The food was outstanding. Our cocktails, cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert was all served because of COBID-19 restrictions but the feedback from our guests was that they all enjoyed being served so much better. The food was outstanding!! SOOOOO good; everyone was raving about the delicious entrees and the cookies they got to take home at the end of the night. The servers apparently took very good care of their tables as our guests told me how attentive everyone was.
The grounds are so well kept, we took the most amazing pictures during daylight hours with the flowers in the background and at the with the Palace lit up as the backdrop. There is so much space in the east ballroom, our guests were very well spread out and all felt comfortable attending our wedding.
Our maître d David ran the show completely the day of our wedding, we were so happy to have him by our side. He had so much patience and guided us every step of the way, from organizing all our pictures, making sure our champagne glasses were put out for our toast and packed back up, to making sure the day ran smoothly for the bridal party, coordinating the cake cutting, and making sure the ceremony was flawless. I appreciated that he took control and ran the ceremony rehearsal for us, that was a big help!!
The bride and groom have bridal attendants assigned to them for the day, I had Ashley and Breanna who were so attentive and helped us and our family out through out the day. Ashley had to sew one of the groomen's pants the ripped. She greeted us with cocktails the second we walked down the aisle after our wedding ceremony which really stuck out in my our mind as a great detail.
I cannot say thank you enough to everyone. Once the world gets back to better times, have your wedding here!! You, your family, friends, and vendors will have an amazing time and the most perfect wedding day. There isn't enough good things to say about our experience here.Sent on 11/19/2020

I am so happy that we picked The Palace for our reception venue! Traci was our planner and was responsive to all of our questions and I really enjoyed working with her. We also worked with Daniel who went above and beyond for us. David our maître d and Ashley our bridal attendant made sure we had everything we needed all night. As soon as we got to The Palace after our ceremony, we didn't need to worry about anything. The food and drinks were great and kept coming. Our guests told us how great it was and how it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We had a wonderful night, we now have beautiful pictures, and even better memories.Sent on 01/16/2021

Unbeatable guest and bride/groom experience
My husband and I wanted to throw an epic wedding, with food being our top priority. Not only does The Palace consistently deliver on food, but their attention to detail and great service is the icing on the wedding cake. BTW, the wedding cake was beautiful and delicious, too--and included in the pricing. If you're the type of couple that doesn't want to deal with paying for linens and wedding cake separately and would rather have a place that takes care of all the annoying stuff--choose The Palace. All of our guests said it was the best wedding food and wedding experience out of all the other weddings they've been to. It's worth it.Sent on 01/16/2020
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!
