    Terrible Covid-19 Response

    I paid an almost $2000 deposit to reserve a wedding date that is now canceled due to the quarantine. Rocket Room had not undertaken any planning or preparation other than holding the date. They will not refund the deposit, explain why, or say what happened to the money. I know times are hard for businesses, but they are hard for individuals as well. we have lost our jobs and $2000 for a date reservation on a date unavailable due to pandemic is a severe hardship. I wanted to love Rocket Room, but when times are hard, true colors show. I can’t recommend a business that does not respond or show flexibility or compassion when challenges arise. Heartbreaking all around. Now my wedding is cancelled and I lost $2000.

    Incredible!

    The Rocket Room was an amazing place to get married. The room is elegant and romantic and we had a wonderful experience for our NYE wedding. Sophie was a dream to deal with. She always responded quickly and worked with us to give us the wedding of our dreams. The food was AMAZING! The staff were very professional. They rearranged the ceremony/dinner space quickly with little to no disruption to our guests. We have had numerous compliments about the space and food. We would highly recommend them!
    We are so happy we chose to have our wedding at the Rocket Room!!!

    Highly Recommend!

    We love Rocket and have spent many enjoyable afternoons there together, so it seemed like a natural fit for our nuptials.

    From the first interaction to days after the event Sophie and her team at Rocket Weddings took care of us in amazing fashion. They made the process easy and gave us a sense of calm - which matters because there are a lot of items to juggle when getting married!

    She guided us through the process for choosing the room layout, food and drink choices, timing and options for the particulars of the days leading up to and the actual wedding. The staff were polite and on point during the ceremony and reception (we held both at the venue). We have older relatives that attended and we were encouraged to use the back entrance on Duckworth to avoid the stairs. Sophie has connections with planners, DJ’s, officiants and photographers and will provide honest opinions about her experiences to help you make great choices.

    We perceived great value from a financial perspective as well. Other venues were usually more expensive and offered less in terms of size, scope and services.

    Thank you to Rocket Weddings for making our day the best it could have possibly been. We feel like we had the perfect wedding, and isn’t that what it’s all about?

    The most special venue for a wedding!

    Choosing the Rocket Room as the venue for our wedding was the absolute right choice! It has a beautiful cozy/rustic feel for an intimate reception. We were blown away by the quality of the food from our family-style meal, and all of our guests are still talking about how much they loved the meal as well. Definitely a stand out! The room is already picture perfect, with hanging lights that make the photos look beautiful. Our biggest endorsement has to go out to the Rocket staff! Sophie, our wedding coodinator took the stress out of planning for the event. She is reliable, prompt, and an excellent resource to lean on if you want opinions on food/drinks/decor/other vendors. The event was staffed very well on the night of, so there was no line ups at the bar. Overall it was an easy and pleasant experience to inquire about, book, plan, and execute the wedding.

    Amazing and beautiful venue!!

    Rocket is who we used for our venue! Sophie was so helpful during the whole process and planning our day couldn’t have been any easier. We had multiple choices for food (we had a cocktail reception) and dessert, different ceremony and reception lay outs to pick from, they set up for the ceremony, switched over to reception quickly, and cleaned up at the end of the night! We didn’t have to worry about anything except our own personal decor which they put together for us when we picked it up the next day! Our guests raved about the food and how beautiful the venue was, the bartenders and staff were so friendly and overall it was a perfect night!
