We had our wedding reception in the venue of our dreams! We could not wait for all of our family and friends to see this beautiful venue in Salem! With high ceilings, a stunning chandelier and hardwood floors, this venue sparkled! I work in luxury hotels and the service from Michelle, our coordinator and her team was five-stars...

Colonial Hall was amazing for our wedding. Everything was perfect. I cannot thank Michelle enough for everything she did. She is so great at what she does and is very familiar with all vendors in the area, so she can help make great suggestions. Michelle is great at responding to emails (and at all hours!) and making sure everything goes smoothly...


We had our June 29th Wedding reception at Colonial Hall. We have nothing but amazing things to say about our experience of working with them. Their staff and coordinator (Michelle) are wonderful and took their time to make sure that everything was perfect. This venue is truly a hidden gem....
