Flexible, professional, detail oriented

From the first interaction with the staff at the Essex Room, we knew that we had to book this venue and we are SO glad we did. The customer service we received all throughout our planning was ... Read more outstanding. During our venue search, we looked at two other venues that both pretty much treated us like "a dime a dozen" and basically told us what our day would be like instead of asking us what WE envisioned for our wedding day and then collaborating with us to make our vision come to life, which is exactly what the Essex Room did for us instead and why we chose them! We loved working with the Essex Room staff because they were organized and flexible and totally understanding of the modern wedding we desired. We had our ceremony and reception onsite and the day was perfect- if anything went wrong, I would not have known it. We loved that they suggested signature cocktails and that they put out cookies and lemonade to greet our guests for the ceremony. They suggested a "mashed potato martini bar" which was a hit with our guests- and we also had an ice cream sundae bar. We chose a stationed buffet with chicken and haddock and the food was seriously amazing! All of our guests were complimenting us on our choice of venue and on all the personal touches that made our day "US"- the signature drinks, the yard games, the macaron tower, the decorations, and the unique ideas. If you are looking for affordable elegance and to work with a skilled group of people to make your special day go smoothly- book the Essex Room asap! You won't regret it.
