Following are some recent notes we’ve received from our guests – we thank your for your gracious words!

 

“Hi Michelle,

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!

“Hi Michelle,

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!!”

“This place will blow you away. My guests cannot stop talking about this place. I booked the Society Room 14 months before my wedding. I had a morning wedding and on top of that, mine was a traditional Sri Lankan wedding. Dana was the sales manager when I contracted but then the staff changed and Michelle Vitti took on Dana’s position. I was initially nervous, but I should not have been. They are so professional and so on top of everything. They are so organized and pay extreme attention to detail. I had many requests to cook a traditional Sri Lankan curry and set up my structure the night before etc. they accommodated ALL my requests. The food was really good! Word of caution, the food during the mock wedding is nothing compared to the food they prepare for your wedding day. So if you My day went SO smoothly thanks to Michelle, Cecelia, Warren ( the Jamaican banquet manager), Desmond and all the bartenders. They were so wonderful during the setup of my wedding structure and on the day of. Everything was flawless. They assured my that my day would go beautifully, and believe me you have to trust these people! I strongly recommend this gorgeous venue and its professional crew.”

“Dear Michelle,
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 and 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!”

My husband and I got married at The Society Room on 3/29/14, and from the moment we signed the contract they provided a wonderful experience. I had the pleasure of working with Dana for the majority of my planning, and she was fabulous. She was always there for any question I had, whether it was about the seating chart or napkin colors. When Michelle Vitti took over for Dana as our wedding coordinator, there was no loss of expertise. She knew every little detail of our wedding and completely eased my mind of wedding day stress. As for our wedding, well, let’s just say all of our guests have been reaching out to us and our parents to let them know that it was the most glamorous wedding they have ever attended. The food got amazing feedback from our guests, the venue speaks for itself with its beauty, and the staff was extremely attentive. Jonna was there for us the entire wedding and helped us with everything that we needed. I would HIGHLY recommend The Society Room to any bride to be and can assure you that they will definitely give you the wedding of your dreams.

Dear Sean,
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.

Regards,
David Bagdasarian (father of the bride)
