    Society Room Venue

    We toured the Society Room as a possible venue for our wedding and loved it! Traci was very accommodating, thorough and transparent. She was able to answer all our questions and toured us around each room. She even sent follow up emails with documents I had requested. The space is stunning with options for several rooms and bars. The ornate decor adds to the aesthetics of the room. Initially we were hesitant about the split level balcony for a larger party but after learning more about their operations it was no longer a concern. Society Room was a strong option but unfortunately they were booked the date we were interested in.

    Perfection!

    Just over two weeks ago we had our wedding reception at the Society Room in Hartford, CT. We visited countless venues in the greater Hartford area but none of them captured our vision and ideal day like the Society Room.

    The ambiance was breathtaking including the large stone pillars, wooden bars, two storied ceilings. The venue was everything we could have asked for and then some!

    The staff at the Society Room is really what sold us at the end of the day. We worked with Melissa Sundholm as our event coordinator and she was fantastic! Every time we had a question (which there were many) she was always available to help and make sure that we were prepared for our big day. We even had a private tour of the venue with Jim the GM of Riverhouse Catering on a Sunday to ensure our parents could see the venue before we signed off. The commitment of the folks at the Society Room is second to none.

    Special shoutout to the event day staff Desmond, Melissa, and Hailey (we are sorry if we missed anyone)! You were all amazing and went above and beyond to ensure we didn't worry about a thing.

    The food is AMAZING. Best wedding food I have ever eaten and our guests all really enjoyed their meals. Compliments to the chef!

    Overall, The Society Room was the perfect venue for our wedding reception and we honestly would work with them again if we had the opportunity to do it all over. We highly recommend The Society Room of Hartford. Thanks for helping make our day so special!

    Taylor and Jon

    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!
