My wedding was held at the Marquee on March 21, 2015 and every guest I have talked to as said this was one of the best weddings they have ever been to! The place is just gorgeous but what makes this place really shine is Laura. Laura is a very special person, she is not just the wedding coordinator here but the rock every bride needs!!! I would say I was a very laid back bride however even I had some "AH" moments and Laura was always there to tell me everything was just fine. Moments before I was about to walk down the isle, my garter was falling down and she got down and helped me fix it ....now thats love! The candy bar she put together for me was AMAZING, the food phenomenal and the service was awesome. I heard after the wedding that some of the tables had competitions seeing who could eat the entire steak, a few succeeded I have no idea how!! Thank you Marquee for making my wedding a dream come true!!!

Marquee Events was the core of my wedding, March 7th, 2015. Laura helped me organize, plan, and make everything really beautiful. I am a control freak and had no problem putting my trust in Laura and her staff at Marquee Events. I knew she would help make everything run smoothly and she did. So many countless things that were above and beyond… right down to printing off a hard copy of the dialog for the announcer to read from, still not sure how she even got that done. Laura, you amaze me! And Shaun, whom I believe to be the headwaiter, also went above and beyond on the night of the wedding. Brian is still talking about how he never had an empty drink. He took care of Brian & I so well and kept track of all of my items and sent them all up to our room. When we got up there… there was my bouquet, my veil, our dinner all boxed up in the fridge, and our cake. Wow! He even found out that someone lost an earring and some cufflinks and he found them and brought them back to their owners. It’s those extra things that set them apart from others. Amazing wedding, amazing night, amazing staff, thank you so much!!!
Oh yeah, and the N.Y. Strip is the size of my head and Facebook has been flooded with pictures of beef from our wedding.

We just got married on September 19th and I can't believe how amazing it was! Working with Laura was incredible! She made sure we got any and everything we wanted. The compliments kept pouring in about the venue, the delicious food, the waitstaff and the entire ceremony and reception. I will definitely be recommending this venue to all bride-to-bes I talk to!

Looking for a venue was starting to seem hopeless until I stumbled across Marquee Catering & Events in Hartford. Immediately, just from looking at the pictures online, you can tell how stunning the building is and the staff does an unbelievable job at transforming it to your dream location. Everything from start to finish was the easiest and most pleasant experience that we ever could have imagined. Darren was an incredible asset to have with our planning and took care of everything for us. Their package included everything that we were looking for. There was the amazing food which included the biggest portions I've ever seen served at a wedding, their separate (very impressive) areas for cocktails and the bridal suite as well as free (yes free) valet parking for guests which was a must have for guests in Hartford. All of this, along with a stunning backdrop for our pictures and the staff,who were so helpful practically reading our minds, made for the most seamless evening. It was an amazing event and I'm forever grateful for everyone at Marquee, but especially Darren, who made it unforgettable.

We got married at the Marquee and couldn't have been happier! Our guests raved about how everything looked and the food, and everything went smoothly. Working with Darren made everything easier and he was always responsive and patient with my many many questions. I would definitely recommend the Marquee!

If you are looking for a unique wedding venue with stellar service, look no further! The Marquee was incredible from beginning to end. The space in itself is jaw-dropping, different from any other wedding venue I've ever seen. It has a very unique feeling to it. I cannot tell you how much we have heard from our guests how impressed they were with the space, how nice it was to be somewhere "different," and how convenient the location was. With the Marriott right next door and valet parking available, you could not make it easier for your guests to have a worry-free experience. On to the service. We worked with Darren from the moment we walked through the doors for our first appointment until the night of our wedding. He is so easy to work with, very responsive, and knows what he is doing. I had no worries leading up to my wedding because I knew I was in good hands. As for the night of, the service was spectacular. I was so impressed. One of the servers made a point to look up how to say "fish" in Portuguese so that he could serve it to my family from Portugal. As the night went on and our guests were feeling good, the inevitable happened -- someone dropped their drink. Before I could even turn around to see what had happened someone was there with a broom and towel and it was cleaned up literally within seconds. We were in awe! The food is amazing. You have so many options to choose from and it is truly difficult to make a decision because it is all SO good. I made a point that it was very important to me that meals were served hot, as nothing is worse than being served a cold meal, and the Marquee did not disappoint. Our guests have not stopped raving about the food.

If you do decide to book the Marquee and are having a fairly large wedding, I suggest having the dance floor in the atrium as we did. I have heard from many of our (older) guests how nice it was to sit and socialize with people without having to yell over loud music. Just another plus!

The venue in itself was a beautiful location, easy access for all our guests and the valet parking was a great extra. I can even begin to rave about the food, the service, and attention to detail. Darren was an amazing coordinator and answered all my question in a very timely manner. The staff was amazing and attentive and all our guests were in awe of the venue. The price for everything that was included was perfect! The amount of guests that praised the food, the venue and the staff was amazing and everyone had a great time. We had a few guests that are a bit stuffy that were were just waiting to hear about what they had to critique and not one of them came back and didn\'t say that everything was perfect! Not that I want to ever get married again, but vow renewal..charity event, if I ever have a chance to organize something like this I wouldn\'t go anywhere else. On a side note...somehow some way all my things made it back to the honeymoon suit in one piece. With my husband and I being a bit liquored up I have no idea how they did it! Kudos to Marquee!!!
