Jocelyn & Megan were intent on making their wedding intimate, elegant, yet simple. As a matter of fact, they approached me saying that they wanted a non-wedding wedding. It would be a small gathering with a ceremony followed by dinner and that they didn’t want all the traditional pomp and circumstance that went with a wedding reception. They very much wanted this dinner to reflect them as a couple and they managed to bring their love of wine and books through their ceremony and with the decor they chose.Read More
I met Cassie and Rob early in the spring of this year. They had originally wanted to do an outdoor wedding on their beautiful farm property in Walnutport. But, as does sometimes happen with outdoor receptions, they were overwhelmed with all that is involved in having an off-site outdoor event. Not only that, the time of year, November, might be just a little too chilly for what they had in mind. So, the couple came up with another idea; on location ceremony at their barn on their property and a beautiful reception at the Mauch Chunk Ballroom only minutes from their farm. And, they came to the right venue because not only was I able to provide them with service at the Ballroom, my staff and I also have experience working off-site ceremonies. As a matter of fact, we’ve done it a few times before.Read More
Over the past few years, I’ve constantly re-evaluated where the Ballroom is and where we wanted to go. The one goal that has been constant; offer high quality food and service to create a very memorable and beautiful affair for couple and families that hold their event at our facility while also offering a great value. When I was approached by local restaurant, The Broadway Grille & Pub, we sat down and talked about how our team at the Ballroom combined with their team in the kitchen could offer just that. And so, it is with great excitement that I announce that The Broadway Grille & Pub is now our exclusive caterer at the Mauch Chunk Ballroom.Read More
Kelly & Frank had their ceremony at the Anita Shapolsky Gallery across the street from the Mauch Chunk Ballroom. Of course, I was on hand to help the with their rehearsal the day before, and the ceremony the day of. Kelly and some of her family were staying next door in the Vicotiran Mansion that is available for rent and sleeps 12. It’s a beautiful spot that offers some great photo opportunities and a comfortable location for the bride and her bridal party to get ready.Read More
If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought that Tonya & Chuck hired a designer to put together their wedding. Their commitment to their vintage style was so precise and so committed. Every detail tied in beautifully and was well coordinated. But, Tonya & Chuck simply carried their everyday style into their wedding day and they did it so perfectly. It was beautiful.Read More
Pamela & Mike had a beautiful August day for their wedding.
Their ceremony took place at Our Lady of Queen & Peace Church in Broadsheadville, PA. Then, afterward, the guests headed to the beautiful Mauch Chunk Ballroom for the reception.
Pam & Mike took full advantage and had photos taken around town while their guests snacked on cocktail hors’d’ouerves and sipped on drinks from The Broadway Gill & Pub. Once they returned, the couple took a few minutes to unwind with their Bridal Party in our makeshift Bridal Suite on the museum level. Their bridal party had some fun gag gifts that they wanted to give the couple before they began the party.Read More
