I just had the wedding of my dreams at the State club. Wendy and everyone who works there ..helped to create such a magical day for myself, my husband and all our guests. The food was just wonderful and everyone loved the ice cream bar!

Daryl was fantastic and made everything fall into place - I can't say enough about him! And we just love Wendy!!

My husband and I are going to stay members so that we can continue to relive the magic!

I loved having my wedding at the State Club! The atmosphere was perfect and the food was delicious. The wedding coordinator, Wendy, is fantastic and so creative! The rest of the staff is wonderful too. My wedding felt like a fairytale and I owe so much of that to how well the evening was executed. They really care about their brides and go out of their way to make sure each one feels special. You won't be disappointed!

The State Club is beautiful and the best place to get married!! We loved working with Wendy and she really made our day magical! The options at the club are wonderful-- from the food to the settings to the details. FYI for future brides-- the catering prices look a bit high at first glance but that is because you don't actually pay a "venue" fee. It evens out pretty well though to match prices with other venues+caterers in town. We just love The State Club!!

Wendy at the State Club made our wedding day PERFECT. She was there to make sure every little thing went right. She was so organized, was always available through email to answer questions, and went above and beyond to make sure everything was set up correctly. We even had an unexpected guest (RSVP'ed no and showed up) and she had a stash of extra escort cards and was super smooth finding a place for them - they never knew! I was very realistic about how my wedding would be - I was sure that something would go wrong, but if something did, I didn't know about it because everything ran so smoothly. Also the food was great and the bar staff was super friendly. If you get married here, get the ice cream set up!

We held our daughter's wedding reception here at The State Club, the absolute perfect venue for an NC State graduate! Not only are the facilities among the most beautiful and elegant that you will find anywhere, the quality of the food and service is simply off the chart. We originally thought that The State Club would be out of our budget, but when we compared the total cost of renting other facilities around Raleigh (including renting tables, linens, candles, using restricted catering vendors, etc.), The State Club package was comparably priced. Factor in the outstanding food and service, and I think it was the bargain. Other factors to consider - an abundance of free parking (your guests will appreciate!) and the beautiful & comfortable seating designed specifically to complement the ballroom (no need to rent the expensive and uncomfortable chiavari chairs - trust us, your guests will appreciate this too!). The rental of the facility for a wedding/reception also includes use of the facility for bridal portraits...and it makes a stunning backdrop for these. The Bridal Suite and Groomsmen Room are beautiful and included too. We had about 150 guests, which is the perfect size to be contained in the grand ballroom. But by putting tables upstairs overlooking the ballroom, they can certainly accommodate more. Wendy is fantastic to work with, and the entire staff is so professional and attentive to every detail. And the food...what can I say. Highly recommend the signature country ham biscuits with brown sugar glaze...out of this world! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how good the food was and how nice the wedding and reception were. We heard from several people - "Nicest wedding I have EVER been to." That was not our goal, but surely a supreme compliment! We highly recommend The State Club!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Wendy and The State Club staff! My now husband and I are NCSU almuni and huge fans! My parents are members of the club and so we decided it would be the perfect place for our indoor reception. The club is so gorgeous! Marble, chandeliers, and a grand staircase! Wendy did an absolutely amazing job taking our decorations and decorating the club! We had a close family relative pass away two days before the wedding and Wendy was such a blessing! She is SUCH a joy to work with and makes everything so stress free! The wait staff was so friendly and quick! Everyone at our wedding raved about the food (we had steak and chicken)! Our wedding reception went off without a hitch thanks to Wendy and the staff!

The State Club was the perfect venue for my wedding. My husband and I met at NC State and it was special and meaningful, but also beautiful and classic. The venue's neutral decor, wood, and marble floors, meant it was a perfect backdrop for whatever colors and decorations we added to it. We are both currently serving on active duty in the Army, and I was deployed during the planning process, but Wendy and her team worked with me wonderfully from afar. We were able to keep everything just at our wedding budget, but we also booked before new package pricing was put in place, so as long as you have the budget, it is totally worth it. The food was also spectacular. Our guests raved everything about the venue and food. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out!

The State Club was a gorgeous venue. The food was great, the space was beautiful and Wendy, the event coordinator did a FABULOUS job. We had a cocktail reception with 150 people and it was a perfect amount to fill the downstairs without feeling crowded. Wendy and team did a fantastic job of keeping the evening flowing and if there were any issues, I didn't know about it.

The ONLY downside to The State Club is that you have to deal with their Membership Director. We had no problem joining prior to holding our event there, it was an enjoyable experience getting to eat and drink at the restaurant and enjoy the facility prior to our reception, however, Kelly, was horrible to work with. After a few initial emails about joining, we set up a time to meet with her and have her show us the club. Not only did she call out sick that day, but she didn't send us an email to cancel or reschedule and she didn't even acknowledge it after the fact! It ended up working out OK just because we met with Wendy instead (and she was who we would work with for the actual event) but I found that very odd and unprofessional, especially since we were using our lunch hour to meet with her. Aside from that, any other time I had questions about membership etc, Kelly was unfriendly and fairly curt - just not something I expected from The State Club, let alone their Membership Director.

Once you get past the actual membership, everything else at The State Club was fantastic. I can still 100% recommend this venue and fully support Wendy and her banquet staff.

A wonderful venue for my wedding - Wendy was more than accommodating to all our questions and concerns and flexible when it came to bringing our decor in early and setting things up. I hardly noticed the servers at all, but my guests were extremely impressed and keep raving about the event. An elegant, sophisticated venue for any event!
