We’re so glad Susan shared this image recently on Instagram. (We’re on there as @marquee_gfoxballroom in case you didn’t know!)  A little throwback to a gorgeous shot of her on the couches in our Mezzanine. It’s a great spot, tucked away and perfect for stunning photos like this one while the bride is waiting to walk down the aisle!

We stumbled across this table on display at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford as a part of their “Simply Splendid: Rediscovering American Design” Exhibit. After commenting on how the table would fit in with the Art Deco style of Marquee Events, we read the display details to learn that it was actually donated by G. Fox and Company!

We are so honored to fill the space that used to house such an important piece of Hartford’s history. As mentioned in the write up, “…department stores, like G. Fox & Co. of Hartford, were community landmarks as well as important transmitters of modern design.” We couldn’t agree more!
