My now husband, Cory, and I would HIGHLY recommend the State Room for a wedding (or any event, really!) The staff was so helpful - Eric, Tara, Tom, and the whole State Room crew were amazing to work with! They went above and beyond for us and made us feel so special. Like we were the only ones that really mattered. And they made sure everything ran smoothly and on time! (Which I appreciate as someone who runs events and works in theatre as a career.)

I must also mention the food. Cory and I had been to weddings where people went home hungry. So our list of requirements included making sure our guests were fed and happy. Let me tell you, you will not go hungry if you choose the State Room! Between all the hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour, you will barely have room for dinner...But the food is so amazing you won't want to stop eating! And I recommend getting the Prime Rib. You will not be disappointed (almost bigger than the plate and at least an inch thick!)

It's also a beautiful venue and doesn't need much in the way of decoration. They also provided candles for us and photo booth props. They have table numbers as well, but we made our own (they were themed, so kind of specific lol) We did our ceremony and reception in the room downstairs. They changed that room over so quick! They told us it would take 5 minutes, and I believe it was 5 minutes on the dot! We also enjoyed our cocktail hour in the private room upstairs together. We were able to eat hors d'oeuvres that were brought to us and enjoy our first moments as a married couple. It was absolutely lovely! You won't go wrong choosing the State Room. Everything was perfect! Thank you to everyone at the State Room for giving us the most perfect day we could have ever dreamed of!

We can't say enough how amazing The State Room was for our wedding! There is an insane amount of time, stress and worry that go into planning a wedding- but Eric and Tara made it all worth it. They are delightful to work with, and will always go above and beyond to make your wedding unforgettable. Our friends and family keep complimenting that the day was seamless and appreciated every little detail. They all had such a blast. That was all completely to the credit of Eric and Tara. Everything that they do is above what you would expect. The facility is gorgeous, and it shows in all of the wedding photos! Thank you so much State Room for helping create the greatest day of our lives. Love, The Boulds
