    The BEST Venue- Hands Down

    If we could give more than 5 stars for The State Room, we would absolutely do it. Tom, Lisa and his team are beyond incredible and supported us throughout the wedding planning process from start to finish. They have an excellent list of recommended vendors and include several within their various packages (cake, flower centerpieces, etc.) which made planning so much easier!

    The food lives up to the hype- our family and friends still rave about how incredible the appetizers, entrees and late night snacks were. Even the pickiest of eaters complimented how tasty everything was.

    The decor and ambiance of the interior is beautiful and truly timeless. They helped us put together our vision of offering a Hershey Kiss Bar and put that together seamlessly.

    When Tom tells you that you are his son and daughter for the day- he means it. We felt so taken care of and really appreciated that on our wedding day. We could not have asked for a better venue. Thank you, Tom, Lisa & Team, you are amazing.

    Love- Ashley & Shawn

    Perfect Wedding

    We had a absolutely beautiful wedding at The State Room, I would even say we had a perfect wedding! So many of our guests have said that our wedding was the best they have ever attended and could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue is and how good but also how much food there was. Guests who we know typically leave these events early, stayed the whole night! Tom and his staff were so wonderful and easy to work with, whenever I called Tom would pick up immediately and was happy to answer every question no matter how minor of a detail. Tom and his staff clearly had so much experience and expertise I felt that I could 100% trust their advice.

    The wedding package available was so inclusive that it made planning so easy as Tom handle most big details (cake, food, bar, vintage car, late night food, florals), his suggested vendor list was amazing and all vendors from his list were fantastic choices and were also so easy to work with. Tom really goes out of his way to making his couples feel special. Starting with his vintage car, driving my parents and I to the church, and then my husband and I to photos, then the State room, and then even drove us across the street to the hotel and personally escorted us to our hotel room. The entire time helping to carry my very long train and veil! Tom also has a private room that overlooks the reception hall for us to go to before the reception start allowing us to have a special moment for just us where he makes sure the couple is each given one of each hors d'oeuvres. It was so nice being able to see the room empty and then watch as everyone arrives.

    The food was absolutely amazing, even as the bride I was so full, and anything not eaten was packed into to-go containers for all guests. People are still talking to us about the food. The State Room is so beautiful, it made decorating a breeze, I hardly had to bring anything in as the venue itself is enough. The staff was also so kind, Lisa was so nice and was so flexible with last minute details and changes. One of the servers was a lifesaver as I kept loosing my on of my earrings, she found pencil erasers that I was able to use as emergency backings. I'm truly blown away by how amazing our wedding was, I would not have changed one thing about our night!

    Thank you Tom!
