If you are looking for the absolute perfect wedding, look no further. The Palace is a top notch wedding venue. We just recently had our wedding there on January 18th and it exceeded all of our expectations and then some! Richard, our maitre'd Traci, our wedding plannerand Maya, our bridal attendant were absolutely FABULOUS!! I could not recommend them both more!! The food was INCREDIBLE! From the time I walked in until the time I walked out, I was treated with such love and care. The Palace is an absolute DREAM!Sent on 01/28/2020

You need to get married here!!
My husband and I had our December 28th wedding at The Palace, and we could not have been more obsessed with this venue. We searched for a few months as we had some time during our two-year engagement, but when we finally visited The Palace, we fell in love. Kara helped us with our booking and walked us through everything we could expect on our wedding day. Even during the booking experience, we knew we had made the right choice.Sent on 02/25/2020
The Palace itself is one of the most impressive venues my husband and I have ever been to. The elegance of our East Ballroom was everything we could have asked for and more. On top of the stunning beauty of The Palace, our December wedding was accompanied by incredible winter decorations, which added another element to the venue that my husband and I were really excited about.
About a year out from the wedding, our wedding planner Alex reached out to get the ball rolling on everything we needed to do leading up to the wedding. She was incredibly insightful and helpful during this whole. At our tasting, we were able to sit down with Alex and try everything many things on their menu, including all of the cake sponges/fillings, and wine. All of the food options were amazing, which made it very difficult for us to decide on our menu; however the selections we made were raved about by the guests. Don't worry; The Palace will give the bride and groom one of everything you chose as well as take-home dishes for the next day which we got to enjoy with our family.
From the moment we stepped off our bus, we were greeted by Richard our Maitre D and Maya, who was our Bridal Attendant, and they immediately took control of the rest of our day. Everything transitioned so smoothly, and the bridal suite was stocked with food and drinks for our bridal party and family. When we met Richard for the first time, we knew we were in the right hands! His attention to detail and making sure your day runs without a single hiccup is genuinely something we admired. In our first meeting with Richard, he also raved about Maya, which set our expectations pretty high. Maya proceeded to blow away our expectations and was probably one of the most talked-about individuals among our family and bridal party. You could not ask for a better person by your side on your wedding day. Anything you needed, Maya was right there with it before you even asked! Not only is she there for you, but she was there for all of our immediate family members and our bridal party. My husband still talks about the fact that whenever he went to get a new drink, Maya was standing there with an Old Fashioned in her hand for him.
The cocktail hour was still one of the most talked-about moments of our wedding among our friends and family. The Palace gives you five carving stations, 15 passed hors d'oeuvres, a premium open bar, and my husband and I had the Raw Bar as well. When our guests arrived, they were met by a line of servers on both sides of the doors that were handing out old fashioned's, dirty martini's, and champagne. Because we were so busy, it was hard for us to sample much of it, but Maya and Richard pulled us away, and we were able to enjoy everything available downstairs at the cocktail hour in our bridal suite.
The ballroom was absolutely stunning with amazing lighting and a massive dance floor. The Palace was really flexible about our table arrangements and making sure we had enough seating for everyone at specific tables. The service at our tables was hands down some of the best. The entire staff is incredibly professional and very good at what they do. To top the night off, we had a Viennese table display in the grand foyer, which dozens of different desserts for our guests to enjoy. The night was truly magical, and something my husband and I will never forget.
We are already trying to getting friends and family to have a wedding at the Palace so we can experience it again but this time as a guest! Would not have changed one thing about our wedding day!!

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!
