    Where do I begin?! Eric, Tara and Tom are AMAZING to work with! From our initial meeting with them, we were sold, they provided everything and then some in their packages. There are no hidden fees, you get what you get and they lay it all on the line for you. Giving you recommendations, tips and a schedule so you are always on track! All my questions and concerns were always answered with their honest opinions and knowledge. Their communication with us throughout the entire process was top-notch. I never once felt pressured or had a second guess I picked the wrong vendor because they KNOW IT ALL! Our wedding day was flawless, the room itself it just gorgeous and breathtaking down to every little detail. We had our ceremony at the State Room as well and it was perfect and convenient. Once they turned the room around for the Reception, we all were in awe. Every detail they had taken care of, even if we forgot or didn't think about. The staff for the night were polite, friendly and knew what they were doing. The food never stopped, and it was delicious, the only complaint I heard about the food was that all my guests were stuffed! You don't here that too often.. Many of my guest got to take their meals home because they simply couldn't eat anymore. My husband and I had the best night of our lives because of The State Room. The dance floor was always packed and there were smiles everywhere, what more could we of asked for?! A thank you just isn't enough for what this talented team did for us, and we are forever grateful for it all!

    Our daughter and son-in-law couldn't have asked for a more magical wedding. It was everything that she had dreamed of since she was a little girl. The food, the staff and the place was top-of-the-line. Special thanks to Tom, Tara, and Eric for doing an outstanding job to make everyone happy. Thank you from Connie
