There aren’t words to describe how grateful I am for the entire staff at The Balcony Ballroom. What they manage is a special, detailed wedding experience, tailor made to suit your specific desires in an environment designed to relieve the pressure, headache and tediousness involved in planning a ceremony and reception. My entire family was taken care of from start to finish. My guests were all treated impeccably. I’ve heard from every, single person Ive spoken with since the wedding that our wedding was the most beautiful and fun wedding they’d ever been to, and everyone raved about the food and drinks!!! While the atmosphere and attention to detail are certainly a crucial piece of what Mike, Vanessa and Jay do, it’s truly their experience, expertise and their passion for what they do that make everything run so smoothly and truly makes you feel like your special day is special for them as well.

I would rate The Balcony 5 Stars, 5 times over. Everything was perfect. They pulled everything together seamlessly. Two years of planning came together in creating the best day ever. Vanessa is amazing!! I want her to be a part of all of my events. Everyone was great. My guests are still raving. The food, the drinks, the decor, the hospitality, and just every aspect was carefully considered and flawlessly implemented. I can’t say enough of good things about The Balcony and their entire staff. They really take over and take away any worries allowing you to enjoy the day to the fullest. I can’t wait to come back as a guest!

Hands down, choosing The Balcony Ballroom was the best decision of wedding planning. From the very beginning of looking at vendors, the staff and overall look of The Balcony made the biggest impression. One of our friends commented how calm we were the day before the wedding, and we told them that was absolutely because of The Balcony Ballroom- they handle everything! All we had to do was mention what we wanted, and they made our dream a reality. We received countless compliments from our guests about how much fun they had at the reception. There was nothing that could have been better on our wedding day, and we largely attribute that to The Balcony Ballroom.

Vanessa, Mike and Jay: Words cannot describe the gratitude we feel for making our wedding, the kind of day I’ve always imagined and prayed for, more than perfect. Each of you were all incredible from beginning to end. The staff from the guest checker, chef(s), servers and bartenders were absolutely wonderful. Vanessa, your attention to details in every aspect was above and beyond and we cannot thank you and Mike enough. In short, you more than delivered on all your promises and assurances. As my mom put it “any concerns were definitely unwarranted.” You catered to us, our families and made our guests feel welcome as they were astonished by the ballroom’s vintage beauty. The various appetizing continuous servings of hors d’Oeurves and well-prepared assortment of food stations were scrumptiously amazing. We speak nothing but blessings on The Balcony Ballroom and now personally understand why you’ve been in this business for over 40 years...PERFECTION in every way!! We love you all and hope to celebrate future anniversaries with you. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND couples to The Balcony Ballroom as they will not be disappointed...you really take care of your clients!! It has been days later and both our local and out-of-town guests are still charged and excited!!

I want to thank ALL of The Balcony Staff, especially Vanessa, Jay, Mike, Colin, and Chef Wes for the MOST perfect experience I could imagine for the MOST important day of my only daughter’s life - her wedding day :) I cannot say enough good things about how professional, diligent, and accommodating they all were from start to finish. The food was delicious, plentiful, and never ending, and a special thanks to Chef Wes for creating an entire menu for a nephew with Gluten issues. He didn’t have to do that. I heard comments about how the bartenders would eventually learn each guest’s drink preference and have it ready when they arrived at the bar! How many places do that?? Thank you so much! You all made me look good - LOL We will DEFINITELY be recommending your venue to everyone we know, and we know lots of people with adult children about to get married :) Thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart, for all you did for us. I’ve never seen my daughter smile so much :D Sincerest Regards, Mother of the Bride

There isn’t much more I can say about this place except that it made my special day absolutely perfect! Vanessa was on the ball starting three days before my reception! She had a list of everything and everyone who would need special attention and care. I thought I wouldn’t have a moment to myself but The Balcony is setup that my groom and I had a private meal together before we joined the rest of the party! It was truly a wonderful day. Oh, and the food was delicious! I’s been over a week and people are still full!

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year vow renewal at the Balcony. All I can say is AMAZING!!! Mike and Vanessa made sure every single detail was taken care of. Our parents, family and guest raced on and on about the service from staff. Not to mention how delicious and plentiful the food was! Mike and Vanessa made us feel like royalty. They were both so sweet and accomodating to our every request. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Simply magical!!
