I wanted to write and just express how happy and satisfied I was with the Amber Room. My son and daughter in law were recently married and the reception was perfect, from the cocktail hour right to the last dance! It is by far the best place to have a wedding reception. Doug and the staff are passionate about every detail and make you feel like your wedding is the only one. Many of the guests told me that if you left there hungry, it was your own fault. Everything was delicious, beautiful, and professional. So if you're looking for a place to have your wedding, call them, you will not be disappointed and it will be the best day ever!

What can I say? The ambee room was perfect in every way. I had a bunch of surprises thrown at me during the month or so before the wedding and Doug at the amber room was very flexible professional and helpful throughout it all. The decorations were perfect, scenery was amazing and both the food and cake taste delicious. Our pictures came out beautiful (taken outside before the reception ). We are glad we chose the amber room as a vendor!

I always heard that wedding planning was a nightmare. You see the shows on TV that show everyone losing their minds. After I got engaged, I knew that this was something I needed to avoid at all cost. One might say that a wedding planner is the way to go but our budget was limited. I found the Amber Room through the knot.com and never looked back. I looked at the photos briefly and was blown away with how beautiful this venue was. Surely this place had to be pricey... Then I read on and saw that they weren't just a venue, they took care of everything! What's everything you ask? Cake, food, linens, hanging my decorations and a DJ (who also provided a Photo Booth and uplighting). I visited the venue three times and each time I was put more at ease. The food was AMAZING, the cake was breathtakingly beautiful! Even more, it was made on-site that morning (we peeked!) so it was as fresh as you could hope! And it was mouthwatering to boot. The DJ was everything you could ever want. He was extremely experienced and professional beyond belief. He also came with a huge selection of add-ons. Overall, if I catch wind of ANYONE tying the knot, I'd highly recommend this place. Whether your budget is big or small, it doesn't matter due to the fact that you can change and add on so many things. Give them a call!!!

The Amber Room Colonnade was definitely the best choice for our wedding venue. On our very first meeting, Doug made it very clear that anything we wanted, he would figure out a way to make it happen for us. My husband and I wanted to make our wedding day unique and this was one of the only venues that was willing to cater to our needs and think outside the box. I really felt very well taken care of. I have never planned a wedding before and Doug walked us through each step and made it easy, even fun! The outside area is gorgeous for taking pictures and we had our ceremony on site at the lower gazebo (which they power-washed for us). The setting was beautiful. The staff is amazing, the food was delicious and we really felt like they were on our team and cared about making wedding special. Also, the price. It's a great bang for your buck! We could't have asked for a better experience.

My husband & I immediately fell in love with The Amber Room. We met w/Doug P. who was so kind & pleasant every step of the planning process. We made numerous phone calls & had multiple meetings to create the wedding of our dreams. It was effortless every time. From the moment we met Doug, it was like being with family. He always greeted us w/his warm smile & calming demeanor that put our every question & concern at ease. We also had a lot of assistance from Alanna & Rey who are so beautiful & energic! The entire staff is genuinely so happy for their clients & make you feel like a star! Doug worked w/our budget & did not make us feel pressured at any time. We met w/Luke the week of our wedding & he coordinated step by step how it would unfold. Doug & Luke's level of professionalism is off the charts! The day goes by so fast it was a saving grace to have them help us slow down & enjoy the night we planned so much for. Sue was also amazing in every way attending to the bridal party & continuously checking on me. Sue & Luke worked together as a dream team! It was a privledge to meet the talented Monica who is the mastermind behind the gorgeous wedding cakes! It was amazing being able to speak w/her directly to create our custom cake. I could write on for days about how much the whole Amber Room staff did! The food was phenomenal! Our family & friends are still raving about how high quality & delicious everything was from the cocktail hour to dinner & dessert. And there was a lot of it! Thank you to the lovely wait & kitchen staff! We received compliments as well from our guests about the bartenders who quickly took notice to what people preferred & had drinks prepared before they even requested it at the bar. Thank you to everyone at The Amber Room for all of your hard work and creating an intimate environment for our wedding day! We love you all- N&K ❤️

We had a reception for our son and his new bride at the Amber Room in Danbury. It was exceptional. Our guests were telling us how great it was all day and afterwards, we got many calls and e-mails about that special day. The food was great. Allot of it and top shelf meals. The cocktail hour was great also. Again, allot of quality food. We contracted our DJ through the Amber Room and he was outstanding also. We have another son and if and when he gets married, we will have something for him there also.

My husband and I got married a few weeks ago at the Amber Room Colonnade and can not thank the staff of the Amber Room enough! Doug Polistena our coordinator was nothing short of amazing. Everyone who helped with our Wedding Day and planning was so laid back and helpful, we never felt rushed or pressured into making any decisions. They kept us laughing and well fed! We were young and clueless when it came to planning a wedding and the Amber Room made everything seamless. Their staff is extremely attentive and the atmosphere is stunning without being overbearing. We took pictures on the grounds and the trees, rock formation, gazebo, and bridge are all beautiful backgrounds! Inside the lighting was a really nice touch and we had plenty of room to dance! We highly recommend their Photo Booth/DJ package. Our guests had so much fun and we have a copy of all the pictures whether they like it or not! I would absolutely recommend this venue to any bride in the future. Being stress-free is HUGE when you're planning such a big day :)

My husband and I were married recently at the Amber Room (4/12) and cannot say enough rave reviews about our experience there. After visiting several different sites, we were immediately impressed with the Amber Room on so many levels. As we worked with the Amber Room to plan our wedding, we were happier and happier with our choice.

First of all were the gorgeous facilities. With a huge dance floor in a very large, beautifully appointed banquet hall, it was the perfect space for our reception. The outdoor gardens, and cocktail hour patio, were the perfect location for an outdoor ceremony. We were even lucky enough at the start of April that the flowers on the grounds had started blooming.

Second of all was the food, which we tried at a wedding expo held at the Amber Room. To say the food was delicious is an understatement. With everything made fresh and on-site, the food was AMAZING. The passed and stationary hor d'oeuvres were so wonderful that people were stuffed after the cocktail hour. They couldn't stop eating. Our station style dinner was fabulous, and people kept going back for seconds and thirds. I think the most telling comment from our guests was that the food was completely different from what they think of as "wedding food". The chefs and dessert chefs were terrific.

But most importantly of all were the people. Our first contact was with Doug, the operations manager. His calm manner and flexibility were immediate selling points for us. In our first meeting he said "We want to create the wedding that YOU want to have", and they followed through on that in every way. Through multiple meetings we designed the wedding of our dreams, at a price we could afford. Even last minute ideas and changes were worked in flawlessly, and Doug was so amazing to work with. Dimitri, our banquet manager running everything on the day our wedding was a miracle worker, doing everything from managing the timing of the whole day, to jumping in behind the bar to make sure people weren't waiting in line, to checking to make sure we had drinks and food. The entire service staff were incredibly attentive, including Suzanne, our personal wedding party attendant, who always made sure we had anything we needed.

We loved EVERYTHING about our wedding, and the Amber Room, and we wouldn't have changed a thing. In short, it is the look and feel of the Amber Room that will pull you in, but it is the amazing people you work with there that will make you hope for another event so that you can go back again!
