I will go as far as saying that if all the decisions we make as a married couple are as good as the decision we made to choose The State Room as our venue, then we are in for an unbelievable life together! Krystina and I are still receiving compliments about the venue, the food, the lighting, etc. Tom, Eric and Tara are a powerhouse staff who kept us organized, relaxed and prepared for the entire wedding planning process and wedding day. The entire day was one big highlight, but some of our favorite moments include: Tom's attentiveness towards Krystina during the ceremony and photos helping her with her veil and dress, our alone time to decompress in the private room upstairs during the cocktail hour (with drinks and the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres being served) while watching our friends and family mingle downstairs. We loved the lighting that made the State Room look like our own personal castle for a day. The lay out of the room was set up perfectly, allowing all of our guests room to walk from table to table, dance and have drinks at the bar. The food was top notch, out of this world. From the cocktail hour to dinner, the food just kept coming! A wedding is one of the most important days in a person's life and the venue helps make it special. My advice is, if you want the perfect wedding, choose The State Room!Sent on 07/13/2018

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.Sent on 05/27/2019

Amazing Time Had By ALL!!!!!!!!
They say 3 things make a wedding. The Music, food, and bar. When is comes to Music Man Entertainment Dedicated, Passionate, and Hardworking,are just some of the words that describe this company. We have a very opinionated family of Irish and Italians and everyone loved him. The dance floor was packed to the point the photographers were squeezing past people to take pictures. Mike put his reputation on the line to make sure to deliver a wedding that people will take about for ages. No matter the generation or genre Mike had everyone smiling and busting a move. Also, when it comes to availability this man is reachable by phone, text, email. He is a prime example of what hospitality is supposed to be. If Mike is you DJ then you should have nothing to worry about!Sent on 06/23/2019
Tom and his courteous and friendly staff at the State Room are a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend the State Room to anyone looking for a truly unique venue in Albany. The professionalism is unparalleled.
The breathtaking view from the main events area is unforgettable. And the experience and skill of the events team always makes weddings go perfectly. It's a special experience to photograph at the stateroom, because it's always apparent that guests are having a special life experience. I highly recommend them!
I LOVE THIS VENUE!!! Tom, Eric and their entire staff are THE BEST!!! 10 STARS!! Just Incredible Service & Cuisine! They really take pride in what they do for their couples! They will go out of their way to make your day SPECTACULAR!!
