Lisa and Rick
Lisa and Rick had known each other since they were children. They met in middle school and, in High School, attended senior prom together. When Rick decided to ask Lisa to marry him he took her back to the place where they took photos together before senior prom: Empire State Plaza. Rick got permission to spell out "Marry Me" in Christmas lights across the plaza in a display that Lisa describes as incredible. After such a romantic proposal it was only fitting that the couple's wedding was just as extraordinary.
Having attended many events over the years that were catered by Mazzone Catering it was an easy decision for the couple to work with Mazzone Hospitality. "I knew that their food was great and unique and their staff was welcoming and friendly." Picking the Glen Sanders Mansion as their venue was another effortless decision; "The Glen Sanders Mansion was so beautiful, from the inside out. The elegant, regal feel that it offers was exactly what we were looking for," Lisa said, "The venue is timeless."
Another reason why the couple picked The Glen Sanders Mansion was because of everything the mansion has to offer when it comes to planning a wedding. Rick and Lisa had their rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, after party and breakfast the day after on the mansion grounds. "We were able to avoid the chaos of traveling from venue to venue for our events and were able to spend more time with our family and friends. Our guests described it as a perfect weekend getaway."
Rick and Lisa adored their wedding planner and couldn't have imagined planning their big day without her. "Not only did she explain the logistics of our wedding day but she took the time to remind us what to focus on. She was so selfless and radiant," Lisa said, "I can't speak highly enough about her."
Working with the Glen Sanders Mansion staff put the couple at ease on their wedding day and allowed them to focus solely on enjoying their special day. "We were able to relax, celebrate and take the whole night in. That is the best gift I could have asked for on our wedding day and I can't thank the Glen Sanders Mansion staff enough for giving that to us."
