We’re not even sure where to begin to explain how amazing the State Room is. After researching countless venues and visiting several of them, we decided on the State Room. We liked Tom, Eric, and Tara and thought that they would do a great job and, of course, the room itself is gorgeous. But they exceeded every expectation we had and now, we can’t imagine why we considered any other venue. Throughout the planning process, Eric and Tara were attentive, answering our questions promptly, reassuring us, and making sure we were on track. Leading up to the wedding, Eric was on top of every detail, no matter how minor. He made sure our guests’ dietary restrictions were noted, that the coloring books we purchased were placed at the children’s seats, and that every vendor was prepared. Most importantly, he made us feel that our wedding would be as they say, “Over the top.” On the day of, everything ran seamlessly and on time. While taking pictures, Tom drove us around in his classic car, brought water to keep our wedding party comfortable, and carried my train so that my dress stayed clean. After the ceremony, Eric helped bustle my dress and made sure that we were taken care of. The food was amazing and to say that the portions were generous is an understatement. We were told at our first meeting that the State Room does WOW weddings, or Weddings Without Worry, but they really delivered. Having the same team of people that are there for you from the day you sign your contract, through the planning process, and the entire day of the wedding, makes all the difference. When you book with the State Room, you feel like you are joining a family. The State Room team’s unbelievable attention to detail allowed us to fully enjoy our wedding. And, at the end of an already amazing night, the icing on our cake was having Tom bring us for a late night drive around the city that we love in his convertible. Stop reading this review, and go book at the State Room now. Seriously, do it.
I'm the mother of the bride and while I didn't go through all the steps in the process with my daughter (all the meetings and vendor decisions), I heard about a lot of them. The only word I can think of to describe the State Room is AMAZING! A wedding is an expensive, ridiculously complicated event to pull off and they did it without a hitch in the process. I saw so many things that could have gone wrong with relatives being difficult, people bumping into servers, etc. and the professionalism that the wait staff had was phenomenal. They didn't blink. The food was amazing. It is almost impossible to serve that many people simultaneously and get prime rib at the correct temperature, and salmon and chicken moist but they delivered at every table. Our hors d'oeuvres were over the top. So many passed quality items and the top shelf bar was truly great. The venue is especially beautiful and we have fantastic photos of the upstairs and downstairs and vault areas. It was so beautiful. But most important was the team of people that helped my daughter and son-in-law through the process and made the day so very special. We were rehearsed and prepared - we were able to enjoy the event and get great photos. It was so beautiful. I can't thank Eric and Tara and Tom enough for a day that both families will remember forever. I am updating my review because now that we are three weeks past the wedding, I realize I wasn't effusive enough! We have always told our children to elope because a wedding is such an expense, so short, and so hard to pull off. Tom and his team made many promises to us at our meeting. The truly amazing thing is that they exceeded our expectations and made us as parents feel that this wedding was actually worth the expense. We travel far and wide all over the world and eat in Michelin star restaurants. This team was able to pull off a wedding even we could say was amazing.
