I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue, and about the amazing coordinator, Laura! I had the best wedding, even more than what I could have hoped for! And my guests loved it too; it felt awesome to have numerous people say it was the best wedding they had attended!! The room is so gorgeous that anything you do is just icing on the cake! I was able to keep things DIY, but I knew if it didn't get done or didn't work out - the room is so pretty on its own, it was nice not to stress over the decor. The food was PERFECT!! The apps were perfect too! The beer and wine selection was better than most places, and there was no additional charges for the good stuff. Same with the linens and chairs; all new and nice and I didn't have to pay more to use the good stuff which I found annoying at other venues. The wedding was a classy affair without feeling too mature or too stuffy. The staff was wonderful too! Young enough to have fun and energy, but still kept it professional and attentive. It truly was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Also having the hotel right there makes it a perfect weekend for all! I cannot wait to attend an event put on by Marquee!

LOOK NO FURTHER... My wedding was October 14th. I have to say Laura is amazing and just on point with everything from tying bows to mini champagne bottles favors or the set up or just being there that day she does it all. If you want a wedding that blows your mind and you like being treated like a queen and king for the day even into the next day.Have your guests go insane over the venue, ambiance and food and service!!! We did not have to worry about anything down to our flowers cake and extra alcohol being brought and placed in our suite..Laura and her staff are Amazing I can not say enough good things our guests are still obssessing over the food and service and Venue. Just amazing.
June, 2016...We just had our tasting! The staff Chef Mike are amazing. If a tasting is this amazing I can not wait till our wedding day!!!! It is almost as if Laura can see your vision and just go with it!! Can not say enough great things. The food any choice is huge portions and delicous. The venue in it of its self is beautiful and so well maintained. AMAZING

We could not have made a better decision for our wedding. The Marquee provided the perfect backdrop for a classy, elegant evening with our favorite people in the world. The food was amazing and our guests had a blast. Working with Laura gave me every confidence that everything would go perfectly, and it did. I knew she'd take care of every detail as if it were her own, and I love her for it. Thank you for the perfect wedding!! :)

My wedding was in October of 2015. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our experience with Marquee and Laura! Not only is the venue gorgeous and supplied my photographer with great ideas for photos, but everything is very professionally run. Laura was there for me with every email and question through the planning process, she was able to wrangle my 2 little flower girls and 1 little ring bearer and deal with a large bridal party. The ceremony set-up and coordination was flawless, as was the reception. But the food.. AMAZING! We still get compliments from people saying it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding, and I couldn't agree more!

After interviewing 13+ local wineries for our wedding venue, Gershon Bachus was an easy choice. Christina was absolutely incredible from our very first meeting. Here's why you should choose this venue for your wedding:

- The owner/coordinator. Christina is amazing at what she does. Right from the start she'll treat you as a friend, not a customer and help guide you along the way and on the day of.

- They are closed to the public the day of your wedding. I challenge you to find another local winery that will do this for you....you won't.

- The staff. The staff here are like one big family working in unison to make everything go smoothly and offer a 10+ experience to you and your guests.

- The food. Sorrel's bistro who caters weddings here is INCREDIBLE. The menu choices are high quality, high class, and the opposite of "wedding food".

- The preferred vendors. The preferred vendors were also top notch and absolutely incredible.

Christina went well above and beyond her role of coordinator and became a friend. She helped my wife with the expected day of malfunctions (hair, make-up, dress, etc) and even stayed after the event to help my bride deconstruct her hair.

My wife and I couldn't be happier with the venue we picked and look forward to wine tasting at Gershon Bachus for years to come.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having our wedding reception at the Gershon Fox Ballroom. Our wedding guests are still talking about our wedding and how it was just unbelievable. I credit most of that to Laura, Chef Kelly and the staff at Marquee Events and the Gershon Fox Ballroom. Laura was so attentive and responsive to all of our requests and concerns. She put all of my worries and concerns at ease and made the evening run smoothly. The food was absolutely incredible! Everyone was raving about the food and how it "doesn't taste like food you'd get at a wedding". The ballroom is just beautiful and having the dancing in the atrium was just perfect. Laura and her staff made my dream wedding become a reality. Everyone said they didn't feel like they were in Hartford, but in Manhattan. The art deco style and old Hollywood feel is just magical. We cannot say enough good things about Marquee Events. We just wish we could relive our wedding reception over again!

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!!!
