|The Colonie Elks Club in Latham, NY|
If you are interested in saving a little on your hall but still want an elegant layout with outdoor ceremony potential, you may want to take a look at the Colonie Elks Club in Latham, NY.
The Colonie Elks in Latham, NY is conveniently located right in the middle of everything, ten minutes from Troy, ten minutes from Albany, ten minutes from the airport, and not too far away from Schenectady and Saratoga.
The Elks Club has a separate bar for your cocktail hour, as well as a large outdoor space for your wedding ceremony. If an outdoor ceremony is important to you, I think you will enjoy the ceremony site on hand, complete with a nice white gazebo with lots of greenery to boot. There is also a large pavilion.
From my experience, the food has been fairly decent. The last wedding I was the DJ at there, the bride and groom gave their guests a choice of a stuffed chicken or prime rib. I had the beefy prime rib, and it was scrumptious!
They also have a disco ball set up in house with both white and red lights!
In the end, this is a great medium end option for a wedding that really gets the job done without cutting any major corners. I would 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 wait staff like that of a Mallozzi's catered venue, I am sure you end up saving a load of $$$ because of this in the long run.
If you are planning on having your wedding in this area, the Colonie Elks is definitely worth checking out.
