Let it be a day that lasts a lifetime

In the glorious Society Ballroom, you’ll find a room of grand marble columns soaring to an exquisitely muraled ceiling, some thirty five feet above the dance floor. A sweeping staircase flows down from the 3,000 square foot balcony, providing a dramatic focal point for grand entrances and photographic opportunities. Marble, limestone, brass and bronze accents adorn the opulent Ballroom in a setting right out of the Great Gatsby.

A truly classic and elegant setting for your wedding. The Society Room will provide a dramatic and unforgettable backdrop for your special occasion.

Immediately adjacent to the Ballroom are three additional lounge or function spaces, each with their own special historic character, seating space and full-service bar. All of this grandeur is complemented by our own incomparable chefs and banquet staff, ready to tailor a food and beverage presentation which will fulfill the promise of a truly magical event for you and your guests. Let the dream begin. The Society Room: Where Elegance Meets Excellence.

Testimonials

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!

We recently had our reception at the Society Room and were extremely satisfied with everything there! First of all, the decor is just stunning. So much character and elegance. Our guests kept raving about it. Second, the price was right and included the wedding cake, which just made things that much easier. Third, every single person who dealt with us from the Soceity Room was so helpful, personable, understanding, patient and accommodating. They were so organized and detail-oriented which is just what every bride needs to guide her through the process. They all made things so seamlesss. Fourth, my other vendors were extremely familiar with the Society Room. They also felt comfortable asking the staff questions directly, without me having to be the middle person. Again, it made everything so easy! Fifth, the food was delicious. My husband is a foodie and he loved everything! I would highly recommend this venue for any event. We wish we could re-live our reception there!
