    Incredible Venue, Incredible Team

    This venue was absolutely majestic and exceeded all our expectations. The ornate design and decorations provided beautiful backdrops to every event throughout our wedding. We took our “first look” pictures in front of the grand wooden door. We read our vows underneath the towering curved window draped with an almost tapestry-like set of maroon curtains. The ceiling fixtures bathed the ballroom with a glowing warmth that set the tone for the whole evening. Our guests gazed upon the artful designs adorning the ceilings, not to mention the colossal marble pillars reaching up to them. The bank vault made for such a unique and picturesque scene like something straight out of a movie. In addition, the tables, seating, dishware, and silverware blended so well into the overall aesthetic.
    A beautiful venue is nothing without proper planning and coordination, and we have to say the Society Room exceeded in these regards, as well. From the moment we met with Jim and Melissa expressing our initial interest in this venue, we were met with helpful, responsive correspondence to all our questions, concerns, and requests. In the midst of a pandemic and the uncertainty it posed, we felt much more secure in our planning by having a team we could easily communicate with. In terms of service, the Society Room was unparalleled.
    As for the food, the venue delivered a delectable assortment of dishes. The hors d'oeuvres were tasty and flowed endlessly throughout cocktail hour from the refreshing shrimp cocktail to the zesty mini buffalo empanadas. The entr​​ées led to many clean plates, with the braised short rib & mashed potatoes easily becoming a fan favorite. The staff were extremely accommodating to all food allergies and dietary restrictions. They worked with us closely during prior planning, as well as the day of the event, making sure to double-check with each guest before serving their plate.
    Thank you so much for making our wedding an unforgettable experience!

    Amazing, Amazing and Magical

    Out of all of the places we spoke to, they were the most accommodating and with a very great value. They literally handheld us through every step and made us feel welcomed. The staff gave amazing service in planning and the day of our wedding. Even with delays they delivered. Our guests loved the location, food and ambience. The photo vault was a hit!!! They have unique touches not many places have. I would have another event here just because!!!

Derek Halkett Photography Derek Halkett Photography Wedding Photographers

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!
