We had our wedding at the State Room last month and it was truly magical. My husband and I planned most of our wedding from another state, which we thought would be difficult, but the team at the State Room made the whole process really easy for us. They were always there to answer my calls or e-mails. The ceremony and reception were perfect. Everything looked beautiful and the food was amazing! Our guests are still raving about the food and the venue. Eric, Tom, Melissa, and Tara were all amazing to work with and the day wouldn't have been the same without their help. We would recommend the State Room to anyone looking for the perfect wedding!

We can't say enough how amazing The State Room was for our wedding! There is an insane amount of time, stress and worry that go into planning a wedding- but Eric and Tara made it all worth it. They are delightful to work with, and will always go above and beyond to make your wedding unforgettable. Our friends and family keep complimenting that the day was seamless and appreciated every little detail. They all had such a blast. That was all completely to the credit of Eric and Tara. Everything that they do is above what you would expect. The facility is gorgeous, and it shows in all of the wedding photos! Thank you so much State Room for helping create the greatest day of our lives. Love, The Boulds

My husband and I are so happy we chose the State Room as our wedding venue. During our initial meeting, owner Tom told us we would feel like family and they sure delivered! All the guests we've talked to after the wedding complimented our wedding and the State Room and many have said it was the BEST wedding they've ever been to! Throughout the entire planning process, the team was always available, responsive, professional, and flexible. Many places try to nickel-and-dime you, but not the State Room. They give you the best while also working with your budget and requests.

The food, one of the most talked about things by wedding guests, was delicious and plentiful. We got so many compliments on the food - the appetizers were delicious and didn't stop coming; the filet mignons were HUGE; the Fun Food Finale was a great addition at the end of the evening! They also sent us home with a ton of leftovers.

The team was the best to work with. Tara was always available to answer any questions I had, and sent helpful reminders to me so nothing got forgotten. Tom was there the day of, picking us up in the antique Buick, helping me in and out of the car, holding my flowers and dress, he even braved the frigid December weather while we took outdoor pictures. At the reception Eric was never far away. All I had to do was ask my husband "Do you know where Eric is?" and he was there like magic! He made us feel so special and helped with anything we needed; he bustled my dress and even sewed my dress when someone stepped on it.

My husband and my's favorite part of the night was sitting together in the private bridal room upstairs while cocktail hour was going on - it was just the 2 of us eating appetizers, drinking our signature drinks and reflecting on the day so far - that we were married! Rather than stressing and making sure everything was in place, Eric and the team took care of it all and made sure we could enjoy the best day of our lives.

Our wedding was nothing short of perfect at The State Room in Albany, NY. The staff were exceptional and caring and worked tirelessly to make sure every need was met while treating each and every guest like family. From our initial meeting with Tom and Tara, to precise execution of every detail with Eric at the helm, our experience at The State Room is one that has raised the bar when it comes to what to expect from a wedding venue. The State Room is the total package.

We thank Tom Nicchi for his vision and to Eric Michael Stewart for being a true professional and a rock star. We will always treasure the memories from this special day.
