Affordable Wedding Hall Review – Colonie Elks in Latham, NY
If you are a bride or groom to be and interested in saving a little on your hall but still want an elegant layout with outdoor ceremony potential, you might want to check out the Colonie Elks Club over in Latham, NY.
The Colonie Elks of Latham, NY is pretty much in the middle of everything. It is conveniently located ten minutes or so from Troy, ten minutes from downtown Albany, ten minutes from Albany airport, and not too far away from Schenectady and Clifton Park; maybe 15 minutes or so.
The Colonie Elks Club has a large outdoor space for your wedding ceremony. If an outdoor ceremony is important to you, I think it is safe to argue that will enjoy the ceremony site on hand; complete with a nice white gazebo and lots of shrubbery / greenery to boot. There is also a large pavilion available for outdoor activities / functions.
From my experience, the food is pretty good. Last Saturday, I was the wedding DJ there. The hall was offering their guests a choice of a stuffed chicken or prime rib. I had the beefy prime rib, and it was great!
They also have a separate bar for your cocktail hour and a disco ball set up with both white and red lights!
The Colonie Elks is a great medium-end venue option for a wedding that really gets the job done, in the end. It is an affordable avenue made possible without cutting any major corners. For my reviewing purposes, I would have to rate it 8 out of ten stars, in looking at the big picture, maybe only subtracting a tiny bit on not having lightning quick service on the actual entree. While the Elks may not have a huge waiting staff like maybe a Mallozzi’s catering venue, I am sure you will end up saving a lot of money because of this in the long run.
If you are now planning on having your wedding in this area, the Colonie Elks is definitely worth looking into.
