I highly recommend the Marquee, we had our wedding here. They were so easy to work with and the whole place looked absolutely beautiful. Everyone was raving to us about the food and how gorgeous the place was. We dealt with Laura and she was so easy to work with. The day was perfect from start to finish! Thanks Marquee!!!

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!!!

Laura was absolutely wonderful and ensured that everything I requested was done with ease. My wedding day went flawless and with no stress thanks to the Marquee team! The venue is unique and just beautiful! To this day I get tons of compliments on the venue, food and service.

LOVED this venue!!! Had our wedding here in February - it's a really beautiful indoor facility. We primarily worked with Laura, who I could always count on to get back to me immediately, no matter what day of the week. She was so professional and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Despite the snow on our wedding day, everything went super smooth.Everyone LOVED the food as well, from the appetizers to the main dish! Highly recommend getting married here.

We needed to find a venue in which we could have a wedding, cocktail hour, and reception in the same place. We found this at Marquee Events and the Gershon Fox Ballroom. Not only was it convenient for all of our guests (most of whom were from out of state), but it was beautiful, elegant, and comfortable. Working with Darren and Tony was a true pleasure, and they easily exceeded all of our expectations and requests. Their timing, attention to detail, and responsiveness were all excellent; we were thrilled with the ultimate décor, room set-up, and overall service. Our daughter and son-in-law were happy as could be with everything that evening, and family and friends were thrilled with the room and the food. It made for a perfect evening, one that we will never forget!
