Following are some recent notes we’ve received from our guests – we thank your for your gracious words!
We got married at the Society Room exactly one month ago today, and we could not have been happier with everything. I've honestly been trying to figure out how to capture the perfection of the Society Room aptly, and while I don't think any words would do it justice, I'm going to do my best to try.
The space itself is gorgeous. There's nothing else like it in Connecticut, and it's richness and grandeur is evident the moment you step inside.
You will be in the best hands. From the moment we started planning with Kirsten (shout out to her especially...she answered our million questions and made us feel so comfortable), to the day of operations team, to our bridal attendant that was always where we needed her during the wedding (thank you a million, Melissa!), they are absolute perfection. As someone who may be a bit of a control freak, I had every confidence in the world that this team would handle everything expertly, and they did not let me down. They delivered in ways I couldn't have predicted, from setting up our Photo Booth in the vault, to the way they set up all of our decor, to running and grabbing a few items from the bridal suite for us (twice!) to handling an issued with a guest -- just everything was taken care of in the best possible way.
The food was fantastic! All of our guests raved about the appetizers and entrees. Go for the late night fry station, it was a huge hit!
All in all we could not have picked a better location for our wedding and if you're aiming for an elegant, classy wedding, this is the place for you!!
Thank you again to the entire staff! Wish we could do it again!
The Society Room was the most amazing place we could have chosen for our June 2017 wedding. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, all of our guests were wowed by the decor and speechless as they entered. The staff was incredibly helpful and patient throughout the whole planning process, and worked tirelessly to assure that our day was the most spectacular day ever! The food of course is also amazing, and was loved by everyone. I would highly recommend the Society Room as a wedding venue to anyone who is looking to get married in Hartford, it truly exceeded all of my expectations, and I had planned my wedding and been engaged for three years before the big day!
Wedding on: 03/31/2017
The Society Room and their staff were magnificent! The venue is gorgeous and very unique, which is exactly what I was looking for. Kirsten & Jillian were extremely organized, helpful, and very professional from the very beginning. They would send emails throughout the planning process, which helped keep me on track. The day of our wedding they were accommodating and made sure my husband and I were taken care of throughout the whole night. I can honestly not say enough great things about the Society Room! I highly recommend!!!!
The Society Room exceeded our expectations on all accounts. The building is gorgeous, which is why we initially chose it, and we're so glad we did. Jillian and Kirsten were so responsive to emails during the planning process and made planning a wedding from thousands of miles away much less stressful. On the day of, all of the staff were so helpful and the whole event ran very smoothly. We received so many compliments from our guests on the beautiful setting and delicious food (the mini tacos were a fan favorite) and were told several times it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. I would wholeheartedly recommend it!
I just wanted to write to you (sorry I haven’t done so sooner!) about our wedding on November 22. John and I truly had a perfect day and our wedding was everything we hoped it would be! Everything was so beautiful at the Society Room. We saw many of our family members who attended the wedding at Thanksgiving and everyone has commented that it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to, we agree too! Everyone also commented that the food was delicious.
Everything seemed to go so smoothly over the course of the evening. We never had to worry about anything because it all seemed to be taken of care. John and I would like to also specifically mention Jonna. She was absolutely wonderful and so attentive, she made sure we had everything we needed all night long. She actually seemed to know what we needed before we did. She somehow managed to do this all without being intrusive.
I would recommend the Society Room to anyone as a wedding or event venue. I cannot say enough good things about you all! I know I said this before but we really felt that our wedding was even more beautiful and perfect than we could have imagined! Thank you and everyone who played a part in making our wedding so special for us.
Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!
I just wanted to send you the biggest thank you ever for everything on Friday. Bryan and I were blown away by how incredible you and your staff were. From the communication beforehand during our planning process, to the ease of working out all the details, to the AMAZING job you did setting up the space for the event, to how incredibly professional everyone was at all times….there just aren’t enough words to say how thrilled we were to have chosen the Society Room. All of our guests were RAVING about the space, the food, the bar, the staff, everything! We heard many times this was ‘the best wedding they had ever been to’.
I just can’t get over especially though how kind and professional and classy and hard working all of your staff is. They went above and beyond what we ever could have asked for . I especially want to tell you how amazing Jonna and Desmond were. They are two of the kindest and most genuine people ever and soooo astute to everything going on around them. We felt at all times that they truly cared about us and our special day. You are so incredibly lucky to have them working with you. It seriously felt like they were part of the family and we gave them huge hugs at the end of the night. Please pass along to them how much we appreciated their help with everything.
The Society Room is hands down the best wedding space I have ever been in for a celebration, and the fact that it was for our wedding makes us the happiest people in the world. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything over the past 18 months and we will be forever raving about you and everything and everyone affiliated with the Society Room!!
CONGRATULATIONS again G + E 06.07.14
I cannot begin to thank you SO incredibly much for all of your help, ideas, opinions, patience and everything in between during this whole process. I was SO confident going into Sunday that all would be taken care of because of you and all the staff’s amazing attention to detail, willingness to help with any request a…nd just overall fantastic personalities! I feel so blessed to have my special day in such awesome hands. As cliche as it sounds, Sunday was literally my most favorite day ever, ever, ever and it was made possible because of you. You never made me feel like a crazy person for all of my 674,218,904 emails and questions (haha) and i appreciate you being so approachable and so sweet- it means more than you know! Thank you so much again, and I miss you already and hope to work with you again (and that beautiful venue) again in the future!
It is rewarding when someone meets your expectations but it is highly unusual when someone exceeds your expectations. In this case, you and your staff at The Society Room far exceeded all expectations I had for Dana and Tony’s wedding on March 19. The venue was beautiful, the food was wonderful and the service was outstanding.
A month has passed since the wedding reception and we are still receiving compliments from both young and old that the affair was elegant and first class in every detail.
Please extend our sincere thanks to everyone at The Society Room for a job well done and for making Dana and Tony’s wedding day a day to remember.
