My husband and I had our reception at The Society Room of Hartford just this past Saturday March 11th, 2017! The entire team at SR did an absolutely fantastic job but start to finish. We planned our reception with them in 7 months and everything went perfectly. Our guests cannot say enough about the beauty of the venue, the food and the service. It was absolutely top-notch. Once we booked the SR for our March wedding, everything else about our wedding theme fell into place. We used the Cottage area for our cocktail hour which has the vibe of an Irish or English pub and the ballroom for our reception which had a very old world appeal. Because of the ornate ceiling and beautiful design of the room, not much else is really needed so we kept it very simple, using gold candelabras rather than floral centerpieces. This allowed us to keep our budget down as well and added more light and ambiance to the ballroom. The staff at the SR were absolutely fantastic, making sure we had everything we needed. Kirsten was a dream to work with in our planning stages and always had a quick answer to our questions. I can't say enough about our experience with the Society Room and I will continue to highly recommend it as an event venue to everyone I know.
