Vendor Spotlight: Somersault Letter Press

Posted in: Jim Thorpe, Uncategorized, Vendor Spotlight
Vendor Spotlight: Somersault Letter Press

I love what I do and when I meet a great vendor or great idea that has to do with parties, and particularly, weddings I get super excited.  Combine that with learning of a cool product and vendor that has moved and settled right into Jim Thorpe, well you can imagine!

The wedding business is mostly, by nature, an area that is ruled by small and often creative entrepreneurs.  With exception of outfits like David’s Bridal and Men’s Warehouse that are large chains, most of the people you book for your wedding consider themselves artists and are often one-man (or woman) operations.  In a day of mass production, that’s a pretty awesome thing. Weddings and parties are places where people like to let their personality shine and that is only often done through finding unique, rather than mass produced, items for your event.

With that in mind,  I’m excited to introduce you to a pretty awesome business that offers unique and hand crafted products to make your wedding or just any event all the more memorable.

Posted in: Ballroom Weddings, Uncategorized

bgp_logoOver 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.

Anastasia’s Gala at the Mauch Chunk Ballroom

 

Many of us can’t imagine what it must be like to loose a child.  I know I would want to just crawl and hide myself away from the world.  But that is not what the Susko family has done.  Instead, they choose to honor their daughters “bad ass” spirit and raise money to help those charities and organizations that helped Ana and her family during her battle with childhood brain cancer.  And so, on her birthday, her parents threw the ultimate birthday party that did just that.

Recently a post came through on my facebook feed from a fellow wedding professional in the area.  It was a videopgrapher that was furiously at work editing one of his latest wedding videos.  He was so aggrevated, he stopped and posted a screen shot of exactly what was irritating him.  Can you guess what it is ?  I’m sure the title gives it away, but here is the screen shot below:

Erin & Mike:  Their Destination Wedding in Jim Thorpe

I often call Jim Thorpe a destination wedding location close to home.  That is just what Jim Thorpe was to Erin & Mike, who , along with family and friends, came from New Jersey for a little romantic wedding get-a-way!  They even brought in Tami Melissa photography, from New Jersey, to take their photos.  This photographer has been to many weddings from this group and it’s no wonder why!  The pictures were stunning.
