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!
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.
