    Our wedding day!

    The society room of Hartford was absolutely amazing. From the beginning Traci was always available when we needed her. She was very thorough and made sure we would have everything we wanted and needed day of and also touched base with the other vendors. The coordinators Cecilia and Desmond were amazing. They made sure everything ran smoothly. We also had a bridal attendant named johnna who was the sweetest most awesome person. She was there whenever We needed something as well. The bridal suite and grooms cottage were comfortable. They always made sure we had refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. During our plated dinner the food came out hot. All of our guests said everything was beautiful and the food was awesome. The waitstaff made sure our guest were comfortable. Only complaint is they don’t serve shots and they don’t offer vendors the hors d’oeuvres. Other than that the society room treated us like royalty and we didn’t have to lift a finger or worry about a thing. So grateful and happy for the experience we had.

    Fun and Informative Team with a great backdrop for a wedding!

    I'm so glad we chose the Society Room! We received so many compliments about how gorgeous and unique the actual venue was and on the food! I was nervous about planning a wedding from out of state but there was no need! Melissa, Desmond, and Jonna were all extremely professional and helpful. Melissa was the coordinator before the big day and answered any and all of our questions which was fantastic! Desmond and Jonna were there for us on THE DAY and were everywhere! They worked very hard to make sure we had fun and we did!! So thanks! They also gave us pointers on what to expect and I especially appreciated Desmond's advice of not to look at the officiant during the ceremony! Our pictures of the ceremony look awesome because we were staring at each other not the officiant!! Jonna made sure I had everything I needed! We had last minute changes to things at the final meeting and Melissa and team were extremely accommodating! Overall it was the little things they did or helped with that really made our day! What a great professional team! Well done!

    As a wedding photographer, I always look forward to being a part of capturing beautiful moments for the couples I work with. Half the challenge when trying to create that magic moment is having the right venue to set the stage and give the proper ambiance to put the photographs over the top. Having done a couple of weddings at the Hartford Society Room; I can truly say that each and every time I am there it is special. The staff is top notch and treats the wedding party, guests and vendors with respect. I look forward to coming back soon!
