First Impressions

  First impressions are everything, and the happy couples first impression of the hall was nothing short of incredible. When Michelle and Stephen first stepped foot in the Hall of Springs they “knew right away this was the perfect venue for [their] reception”. They loved the “amazing architecture” and remarked at how the Hall “is beautiful and full of history”.

When it came time for the reception, you could say that the couple was impressed. Michelle and Stephen said the entire room was “breathtaking and beyond words”, it just screamed “US”! “From On Thai at Surroundings Florist to Rachel Jenack at Total Events to the Mazzone Team, our vendors made the room look absolutely beautiful!”

Wedding planner Meg Bell appreciated the couples design input too. Meg said “I loved how Michelle and Stephen chose not to follow our traditional reception layout and instead decided to do angled head tables with a sweetheart table in the middle. It’s amazing how one small change can completely transform the way the room looks!”

Michelle and Stephen shared their first dance upon arrival, and you could say that was a memorable moment for the two…..

“While taking everything in, DJ Vinny, with NonStop Music, began playing our wedding song. My husband and I started to dance and it made that moment even more special”.

Michelle and Stephens night got even better when the food arrived…..

“We had a lot of food; from cocktail hour to the entrées to the dessert station to the late-night nosh station, everything was delicious!!” They laughed, ate, drank and danced the rest of the night away with their guests. 

Happily ever after

The couples family and friends shipped them off at the end of the night with sparklers lining the brick portico of the Hall; here they shared one final kiss and went on their way.

Michelle and Stephen had some kind words to say about our team. “The Mazzone Team was a pleasure to work with. Everyone was very professional, extremely responsive, and the voice of reason when we were a little stressed! They all made sure every detail was executed flawlessly. We could not have done this without their expertise.”

Michelle & Stephen left some advice for couples planning their wedding day. They said to “live in the moment and make time for each other”, this is your wedding day, don’t let one second slip away!
