    The State Room is the perfect place to have your wedding! When I first started looking for wedding venues, I was set on having a wedding outside on the water in Lake George. That whole vision left my mind as soon as I stepped foot in the State Room. The Ballroom is BEAUTIFUL, and the people that work there are wonderful as well. Tom, Eric, and Emily are all great people who make your day absolutely perfect. They answered all of my emails very quickly, and will do anything that they possibly can to make your day run exactly the way you want it to. The food is amazing and very plentiful, people keep talking about how delicious it was. The staff at the State Room add little details, such as your personalized drink and the sign with your name and wedding date on it that they hang above the bar. Make sure that you go and check out the State Room if you are looking for a wedding venue!

    Wonderful Venue - Highly Recommend

    I can't speak highly enough of Tom Nicchi and the staff at the State room. My daughter's wedding was there this past weekend and it went beyond our expectations. They were highly organized and helped with planning the perfect wedding reception every step of the way. The staff are very friendly and extremely professional. The food is like no other. So fresh and delicious. Our guests raved about their appetizers and entrees. Tom was with us from the beginning of the day until the end. Check out their website and then call and arrange a visit to view the beauty of the architecture and decor. There is no venue in the Capital Region that compares to the State Room.

    The State Room is an amazing wedding venue!

    We highly recommend the State Room! Tom made our wedding a dream come true. He was so easy to work with especially during COVID-19. He allowed us to post-pone our date without any problem and even offered to hold another back up date as we tried to navigate the COVID-19 restrictions. I am so happy that Andrew and I chose the State Room to be our wedding venue. Tom really prides himself in providing exceptional service and an "over the top" experience. The food was amazing, the venue looked beautiful, and all of the staff working our wedding were so attentive and accommodating. Our guests were so impressed and are still contacting us to say what a wonderful time they had.
