    "The best wedding we've ever been to."

    I knew I wanted to get married at The Society Room before I was even engaged. The charm of the building and romantic feel was exactly everything I had dreamed of. It’s such a beautiful, hidden gem right downtown. When I got engaged last year, we booked that as our first place to tour venues. After that, no other venues we saw compared, so we chose to get married there January 5, 2019. Not only was the architecture gorgeous, but the service was top notch. Melissa did an amazing job of guiding us through the wedding-planning-process and helping us with every little question we had. With a 210-person wedding we needed all the help we could get. One of the best parts of the planning process was the grand tasting event 8 months before our wedding where they let you try EVERYTHING on the menu before you choose your own menu-even down to the wines you wanted to serve. We loved that. Our guests RAVED about the food the day of the wedding, and after, saying they had so many different and fun food options. On the day of the wedding, Cecelia and Desmond (the director of operations) took over and everything was flawless. All the decorations were put in place perfectly and anything we needed, we got with no questions asked. At one point, I even asked for pliers because my bustle wasn’t staying together and they had those, and a needle and thread ready just in case. It really felt like we were royalty for a day! Guests have been saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to (I might be partial) but I agree! I hope I’m able to return as a guest again some day.

    Elegant and beautiful venue

    The Society Room is by far the most beautiful and elegant venue in the Hartford area. My daughter and I looked at several wedding venues, and when we walked in to the Society Room, we both looked at each other, and nodded with approval. We were sold at that point. The food, bar , staff and service were excellent. They were very accommodating from start to finish. The wedding ceremony was also there, and was beautiful as well. If you are getting married and want elegance and beauty, look no further. I assure you that no venue will compare to the Society Room!!

    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!
