    Out of this world

    Our family, friends, and ourselves were blown away by this venue. I can’t tell you how incredible this venue is. Eric, Tara, and Tom are amazing people and keep you on track and informed throughout the entire process. I was never once panicked when planning my wedding. The State Room included so much that it was a pain free wedding planning process. I had read reviews before visiting this place and I now know that every word I read was true. My husband and I had the absolute best day ever and we owe it all to the amazing staff at The State Room. You are treated as family from the very beginning. Our guests raved about the food, portions, and ambiance. I would do our wedding all over in a heart beat with The State Room.

    Over the Top! The Perfect Venue!

    What I say here cannot even begin to cover how happy we were with The State Room. Our wedding was 9/8/18. From the moment we even went to see the venue, Eric, Tara, and Tom were wonderful. They made us feel at easy. The venue was beautiful, but we walked out deciding to go with that venue because of how comfortable we felt our wedding would be in great hands.
    Throughout the planning process, Eric and Tara were always reachable. They made planning a breeze. Any request was met, and executed beyond expectations. During our rehearsal, everyone was impressed with how efficient and awesome Eric was with handling our large party.
    On our wedding day, Tom was with me for our first look and photos. He had every possible thing covered, from mints and water to encouraging words. All morning he just kept making sure I was happy, that was all that mattered to him.
    Our wedding was so beautiful. We had both the ceremony and reception at The State Room. My husband and I were given VIP treatment, the guests were amazed at both the quantity and quality of the food, and the wait staff kept everything running smoothly. We felt so well taken care of. Even after the wedding, everything was packed up for us and we didn't have to worry about anything.
    I couldn't recommend this venue more. For ease of planning, for the beauty of the venue, for the value, for the wonderful team you get to work with. Everything.
