My mother recently had a lovely experience meeting Michele, the catering manager, to plan my grandfathers funeral luncheon. She went out of her way to make them feel comfortable during the planning; they knew they were in good hands from the initial meeting. My mother highly recommends the Foundry Room for such luncheons for a smaller number of guests as it was intimate, the staff and service was helpful and unobtrusive as well as took care of all our needs. The food was great (loved the buttery mashed potatoes and apple pie). We felt that we were the only ones having an event at the hotel on that day, even though we knew there was a wedding occurring as well. More...

I am the mother of the groom, I know most assume this role only usually does the rehearsal. That was not my experience. I wanted to be just as involved. Michele helped me with any questions I had, ideas, how to word things and so on. I would email her some days 10 times a day- not once did she make me feel as if I was bothering her. Matter of fact, she made me laugh when I was stressed to the max !! We all wanted the perfect day for our kids- and perfection is what we got.
There truly is no way to verbalize how incredible Michele and the staff are . Michele was my saving grace, and I’m not being “extra” it’s the truth. The rehearsal dinner was as amazing as well!! Our rooms were beautiful, everything was a success!! I wish I could write what it meant to me to have Michele walks me|us threw this, but no such words are good enough.
If your looking for a venue in the Lehigh Area- this is your place!! Michele is your person!!
From the bottom of my heart I can’t thank you(Michele) enough. You truly made this experience such a easy one to enjoy. I am fully aware that our kids wouldn’t of had such a spectacular day if it wasn’t for you!!! Thank you just isn’t enough!!!

Thank you so much for hosting my mother’s celebration of life. It was a great evening and the staff was remarkable. Michele was phenomenal! She went above and beyond during a very hard time in our lives. Her planning and guidance meant the world to me. Thank you again to everyone who made the night special❤️ More...

Michele has lifted all worries and stress off our shoulders. Any question you have, she had an answer. I have never felt more at ease with planning my wedding than I do now. She spent an hour with e and two of bridesmaids just to clear up the million questions I had. She makes planning a wedding so stress-free, easy AND affordable. The atmosphere as soon as you walk in is so friendly and uplifting. MIchele treats you like one of her own and it is the most comforting thing. I highly recommend the Hanover Grande Ballroom for any bride who is uneasy about planning your wedding! More...

My husband and I were married at the Hanover Grande Ballroom on Saturday September 21st and we could not have asked for a more perfect day and experience overall! Midway through our planning we had received an email that we were getting a new wedding coordinator because our current one had switched jobs. You would think this would create a lot of stress after getting used to working with one person, but when Michele took over it was nothing but smooth sailing. She was attentive to our every need and made sure every detail of our wedding was handled with ease. We could not be more lucky to have had her to plan this amazing day with! She had a large bridal party to deal with (20 of us total) and she didnt bat an eye! The party loved her and had so much fun having her around during our special day!! Michele was extremely responsive to every email from myself and my mom (which was a lot) and made us feel relaxed throughout this entire process! I could not have asked for anything better and the venue itself was absolutely stunning! We had asked if we could see the ballroom alone once it was all set up to make sure everything was where we wanted it and it actually took our breathe away. Our vision of the room was brought to life from Michele and the other workers at Hanover. Stepping in to see everything before the night began made it that much more special to us. We also cant say enough about the staff who took care of us during our cocktail hour who made sure there was a limitless supply of drinks and food for all of us. The main dinner was also delicious!!! I cant say thank you enough to everyone who took part in making this day a dream come true!! More...

Loved my wedding here. My wedding coordinator was great and willing to work with us as far as pricing went. The servers were really sweet and took care of us and gave us what we needed as far as drinks and food go. The bridal suite was beautiful and super comfortable and a great perk to being able to have my wedding there. I would definitely suggest having your wedding here at the Ballroom. Food was amazing too! More...

We had our wedding here two weeks ago and I can’t say enough good things! The food was delicious and the venue came together so beautifully. But most importantly, the staff and service we received was amazing! Layla was there for us every step of the way to help plan everything and made sure everything went so smoothly the day of. Jessica and staff were amazing and very attentive throughout the entire night. The bartenders were great throughout the day and even into our after party at the bar. Everyone was very professional yet fun and made us feel so special. We thank you! More...

Lord knows how many venues I've been to and at that point, I was getting pretty frustrated. Out of nowhere I came across Hanover and made sure to call to make an appointment. As soon as I step foot in that place I was in Heaven. I felt all of my worries get lifted off my shoulder. Where they have cocktail hour is so different from any other place and the ballroom is gorgeous. What caught my eye was the bridal suite. Usually, it's just an empty room where they usually have a conference. Well, not this place. It looks like a VIP lounge. I was praying to God that they will have my date since I was having a September wedding and you everyone wants a fall wedding. When I told her my date and she told me they had it, I jumped for joy and booked that same day. I wanted my wedding to be very classy and that was the only place that I visited that fulfilled that need. More...

My wife and I had an amazing wedding reception at the Hanover Ballroom. This was the third wedding in my family at the Hanover. Layla was an excellent Coordinator during all the planning up to and through the evening of the reception. She was with us every step of the way and made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process of picking every detail. Layla also worked with all of our vendors and kept solid communication with them including the day of our reception. All of our food choices were top notch and tasted delicious. The ballroom itself was very spacious and had plenty of room for all of our guests and activities. The wait staff and bartenders were very accommodating throughout the night and kept the reception rolling! We highly recommend the Hanover Ballroom for your celebratory needs! More...

From a guest standpoint, I give them 5 stars. Attended A lovely Friday evening wedding where the bride and groom were married there also. Beautiful setup for the wedding, followed by open bar and hors d’oeuvres including different types of shrimp, bacon-wrapped scallops, mini cheesesteak egg rolls etc. served in the Fancy Bar area with a signature mudslide drink. Everything was really good. That was followed by an incredible dinner back in the Ballroom with hand-carved turkey and prime rib, a mashed potato and sweet potato bar with all kinds of toppings, sausage, chicken, vegetables, salad. I believe they provided the fun DJ. Everyone was nice and there was plenty of help with drinks and the dinner. Hope we get to go to another wedding there! More...

We couldn’t have picked a better place for our wedding! We got engaged two years ago, and after several other venue tours, we decided to tour the ballroom and were immediately sold. We started out working with Gina and Amanda, and then worked with Layla toward the end of our planning process. Everyone was so helpful and wonderful to work with. They were quick with responding to all of our questions, and went above and beyond to making sure we had the most amazing day. Layla did a beautiful job setting up the ballroom, and it was more beautiful then I could have ever imagined. The food and the entire staff were wonderful. I can’t thank them all enough for everything they did for us. More...

I was married on Valentine’s Day 2015 at this venue. Where do I start, for the very beginning to the end Gina and her staff were professional, and friendly, Gina worked with me through changes, ideas, suggestions, etc. She was just amazing. The room was radiant for the occasion, a wedding with a touch of Valentine Day. I had so many compliments of the food and her staff. I had over 200 guest with 60 rooms booked at the hotel.
If I ever ever have another function I will definitely go back to the Hanover Ball Room. Gina thank you so much for making our day as special as it was.

They helped us with making our dream wedding a success and addressed our concerns with their upmost attention helping us to feel stress free with the process. They also helped us with a fabulous and delicious rehearsal diner the night before our big day. Recommended vendors where a huge part of planning and all have proved to be seasoned professionals in their fields. Truly a five star experience I will remember a lifetime. Thank you! More...

My wife and I had our wedding at Hanover Grande Ballroom this past Saturday and we could not be more satisfied. The room was perfect and beautiful. Piece of cake did an awesome job on the cake. Everything was flawless. The food was PHENOMINAL. I was told by every guest (even some who fancy themselves as food critics) how amazing they thought the food is. Someone said they just gave up on wedding food because it always sucks and this is the first one they've ever been to where they enjoyed the food so much. Gina was fantastic throughout the whole process. She was very communicative and helpful and guided us every step of the way. Amanda, the maitre de was also tremendous. They both worked so hard to help make our day perfect. The entire staff from the bartenders to servers were great. I highly recommend giving Hanover Ballroom a shot. Thank you so much for helping make our day so special. More...

My husband and I had our wedding reception here. We planned for 2 years with Gina and her staff. The entire planning process was better than I could have thought. All of our thoughts and details came to life on our wedding day. The moment we arrived to the venue - myself, my husband, our bridal party and guests were treated with the upmost respect. My husband and I commented to one another that we felt like royalty that evening. We got so many compliments on how amazing the food tasted and how beautiful everything was in the ballroom. I loved that my husband and I got to view the ballroom privately before our guests - it was a magical moment. We could not be happier with the choice we made having our reception here - cost efficient and exactly what we envisioned and beyond. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a venue! Great staff, great food, great environment, and you get a complimentary hotel room the night of your wedding - which had a card from Gina and the staff, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and our wedding cake waiting for us when we got in! Perfect way to end a beautiful, once in a lifetime day! Five stars all around. More...

30 September 2017

When we first started wedding planning, my now-husband (how exciting!) and I spent a lot of time touring many different Lehigh Valley reception venues. We were down to our last venue meeting and feeling somewhat discouraged - while we had seen plenty of beautiful venues, none of them felt like our perfect fit. That last meeting was with Gina Martin, Wedding Specialist at the Best Western/Hanover Grande Ballroom. After reviewing packages and details with us, I remember Gina stepped out from the room for a minute and my husband and I both excitedly said, "This is it!!"

We signed the contract to book the venue that very day, and we are so happy that we did! Gina, Amanda (our wonderful maître d'), and the rest of the team made the entire reception planning process not only organized and problem-free, but also enjoyable. From a beautiful private cocktail hour for the bridal party stocked with our hors d'oeuvres and specialty drinks, to the gorgeous ballroom set up exactly how we had envisioned, to the delicious food, to the amazing cake provided by Piece A' Cake, we were so thrilled with Hanover Grande Ballroom! The end of the night ended with a complimentary stay in a suite at the Hampton Inn right next door. The value and service of Hanover Grande Ballroom cannot be topped, and Gina, Amanda, and the rest of the team took care of everything that we needed in order to have the best day ever!!

My husband and I have been geographically separated through the entire wedding preparation process and the staff was more than happy to accommodate for any hang ups we ran in to due to our distance apart. The attitudes of everyone involved before and during the wedding was great. If not for a few, in my opinion, large hang ups, the rating would be perfect. The first problem my husband and I encountered was that the lighting I paid for, as was advertised, was entirely absent. The specific lighting that was paid for behind where my husband and I sat, was also absent entirely. The cake that was picked out, detail wise not flavor, was falsely advertised. Prior to the reception as the bridal party was waiting in a back room, hand foods and drinks were served to us. Admittedly, the party was consuming alcohol but a few of us ended up quite ill midway through the reception and we believe it was due to the hand foods. We got sick, we were good to go, so probably was not the alcohol. The room could of been better decorated and the layout was changed without my husband or I knowing or what we were told. All in all false advertisement and complete disregard for what was requested and paid for led to a less than perfect rating. More...

Leading up to our wedding, I wasn't overly impressed with Hanover Grande Ballroom. I felt as though we were just a number - just another couple getting married there. I obviously understand that there are a ton of weddings held there each year, but the fact that I had to keep repeating our plans left me worried that our wedding day would be a disaster. It was not. The venue was decorated beautifully and just how we described that we wanted it. Everything went off without a hitch (even in the wake of Hurricane Sandy!). The food was delicious. The staff was friendly. My husband and I never had an empty glass and we were treated like royalty. Our wedding day was as close to perfect as you can get. My only gripe was that we had specified that we did not have a cake topper, but someone took it upon themselves to stick one of our decorative pumpkins on top of our cake. It looked horribly tacky and I cringed when I saw it. I didn't let it ruin our day, but I really hate any photos that show our cake. Kind of a bummer since we had some good cake cutting shots. But, all in all, it was a great experience, great value, and I'd recommend Hanover Grande Ballroom to future brides! More...

Gina and Amanda were so helpful throughout the wedding planning process and the wedding day itself. The only thing that we didn't like was that the food tasting was a year in advance of the wedding, so it was hard to remember what we liked, and we didn't get a chance to try everything that they offered. The food did turn out amazing though! Anything we needed, we got. We were told we would stay overnight at the Best Western, but our room ended up at the Hampton and we had to walk there, which we were a little upset about. Sometimes it was hard to get in contact, although email worked best for me, sometimes a slow response or multiple emails getting everyone confused. The only major issue was that we had to spend a minimum of $10,000 on just food and alcohol, which was a little ridiculous. More...

All of the staff at the Hanover Grand Ballroom were so wonderful and met all of our MANY needs! They were very accommodating and provided wonderful ideas for our special day. On the day of our wedding I was so astonished at the beauty of our wedding and how everything came together so nicely. I truly did not have any "bumps in the road" while planning my wedding with the staff at the Hanover. I would recommend this venue to anyone. I hope to attend a wedding there in the future. More...

My wedding is 02/14/2015, There are no words to say how helpful, friendly and supportive Gina and her staff are, I just cant wait for the outcome and I will f/u with more information, just check out all their reviews on face book, Awesome.
outcome--I was married on Valentine’s Day 2015 at this venue. Where do I start, for the very beginning to the end Gina and her staff were professional, and friendly, Gina worked with me through changes, ideas, suggestions, etc. She was just amazing. The room was radiant for the occasion, a wedding with a touch of Valentine Day. I had so many compliments of the food and her staff. I had over 200 guest with 60 rooms booked at the hotel.
If I ever ever have another function I will definitely go back to the Hanover Ball Room. Gina thank you so much for making our day as special as it was.

I couldn't be happier that we chose the Hanover Grande Ballroom for our big day. After our initial meeting with Gina, we instantly knew that this was the place for us. Gina was incredibly thorough throughout the entire planning process, and the day of our wedding was nothing short of spectacular. Her staff paid such attention to detail and made sure everything ran smoothly for not only us, but for guests as well. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue for the ceremony and reception....if you have a vision...they will exceed your expectations. More...

My husband and I searched for vendors in our area and when it came down to it, this was the best most affordable option that was still romantic and elegant. We loved our wedding day and honestly I was so calm and relaxed and everything went perfectly! Our reception was absolutely stunning and all of our guests complimented on how great everything looked and tasted! Amanda H and Gina are a pleasure to work with and if we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing! Thank you so much for the best day ever!! More...

The best decision My Husband and I made was booking The Hanover Grande Ballroom for our Wedding! We renewed our vows on 12/31/16 and it was the Best Day of My Life! We live in Texas but got Married in Pennsylvania and the HGB Team made it so easy to plan from so far away! We had the absolute pleasure of working with Gina, Amanda and Liz and all 3 ladies went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations! Gina is an absolute angel and anytime I needed anything or had a question I would shoot her over an Email and she would respond right away! The food was delicious and everyone of course loved the open bar, and I loved the fact that we could customize it to our menu! I had a pretty good vision of what I wanted and a few days before the Wedding, I met with the ladies and gave them our décor, candy buffet items and decorations and they took care of the rest. When Beau & I walked in for our first look I couldn’t help but cry because every little girl dreams of this perfect day and the venue looked like an absolute Fairytale! You get so much more than what you pay for and you will not be disappointed! I shopped around since the venue was my top priority for the Wedding and to have a Hotel, Rehearsal Dinner, Ceremony and Reception at the same place was brilliant! The location, hotel, venue and staff were all on point! To not have to do a thing or worry on your Wedding day is so priceless! I always hear disaster stories about people’s Wedding Day and I can honestly say that because of Gina and her staff, not a thing went wrong and I could not be happier! Everyone still raves about the Wedding and even the vendors that The HGB recommended were exceptional! All in all I wish I could give them more than 5 stars and I cannot begin to Thank them enough for giving me My Dream Wedding!!!!

I would tell them to definitely look at the venue . Very nice room and very spacious. The food was excellent. My only complaint was the Hotel rooms. There were a lot of problems with requests for adjoining rooms. Our door did not open to connect. and the window feel out also. As a result out room was free but that did not make up for lost time during the reception trying to get settled. More...

My wife and I just got married at the Hanover Grande Ballroom in Bethlehem. We were so pleased with how everything came out and it was a pleasure working with Amanda H. wedding coordinator and Gina wedding specialist. Throughout our year of planning both Amanda and Gina reached out to us numerous times and met with us several times to ensure our day was just how we envisioned it. We were also lucky to have our ceremony and reception in the newly renovated ballroom. The new chairs were a nice surprise and really added to the room! The value is great, the location is great, the service is great, and the vendors in this area are great as well. Majority of our guests were from out of town and having the Ballroom connected to the Best Western Hotel and steps away from the Hampton Inn and Suites was a big deciding factor for us as well. Most of our guests arrived Friday and Saturday for a Sunday wedding and had a blast just on property! They enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, outdoor seasonal pool, the night club on site both Friday and Saturday, and the hotel bar. It was a nice weekend to catch up with family and friends right on property. If you are expecting any out of town guests this is a great location and i would highly recommend it. Most importantly no driving needed after the reception just go up to your room! We would get married here all over again if we could, it was a blast and everything went as planned. So if you are looking for somewhere to have your wedding or event and want it to run smooth and be fun "The Hanover Grande Ballroom" is the place!! More...

So very helpful and honestly wants you to have YOUR special day, whatever that may be. Amanda is available any moment you need her. I forgot to assemble something the day of the wedding and without asking, Amanda did it for me- nobody does anything like that anymore! These ladies have no boundaries to making your day absolutely perfect. I did not have a 'vision' for our wedding day, but when my husband and I got to see everything set up, I could not get over how beautiful and absolutely PERFECT everything was. Our day, the HGB really made happen. I recommend it to anyone I know that is newly engaged!! Our friends recommended it to us, and I will keep passing on this gem!! Book here!! You will be so happy!!

Gina and Amanda made our wedding day a day we would never forget. Everything looked beautiful and the food was delicious. a few things didn't go as planned such as a miscommunication with the number of tables that were needed, but another table was promptly brought in and set up . The ceremony ran smoothly and Gina helped to keep us all calm and organized throughout the ceremony and into the reception, and Amanda was an amazing help throughout the whole night. She even packed up our food for us at the end of the night and sent it up to the room for us because my stomach was upset from nerves all day. Overall a wonderful experience and I am truly thankful for Gina and Amanda for helping me have the wedding I have always dreamed about! More...

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Every aspect went so smoothly. From the beginning, Gina walked us through every part of our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. She helped us plan the day perfectly. She added input and special things that we would never have thought of. (She ordered water bottles for all of our guests because the ceremony was outside and it would be hot!) I had so many questions and Gina answered all of them in a timely manner, and set up so many appointments, just to make sure that I was feeling comfortable with the progress. Amanda, our maître d', organized everything perfectly, and made sure that our ceremony and reception looked absolutely beautiful. For all the stress that went into planning the wedding, we didn't worry about the execution at all. The entire day went so well and we didn't have to worry about anything! More...

I would also suggest that if your getting married go with the first look option it worked out great for us. So, Thank you Gina for suggesting the first look and Thank you Amanda for all your help. Amanda stays with you til the end just to make sure everything is going well. Almost forgot the impotant part of my wedding which was the cake made by PIECE of CAKE was super duper great. More...

Best place to have a wedding in the Lehigh valley, or any event. Gina was a wonderful wedding coordinator making my wife the first priority over everything else.

My husband and I got married on 9/20/14 and our reception was at the Hanover Grande Ballroom. Gina and her staff were absolutely wonderful. Gina was there with us right from the beginning and worked with our budget and made sure that we had everything that we wanted. She worked with us and made sure that our special day was perfect. As soon as we got off the party bus, we were greeted by Gina, and made sure we know where to go and what to do. Everything was taken care of by the time we got there and we did not have to worry about anything all night. Gina and her staff made sure that everything was organized, and set up, and when we got there we got to have our first look at the ballroom before anyone else. We did not get a chance to eat our dinner, because we were going around and saying hello to all of our guests (though they did tell us a couple times that our food was at our table if we were hungry, which was awesome), so they actually boxed up our food for us and brought it to our honeymoon suite so we still had it,which was absolutely amazing since most places do not do that. Also in our suite was two pieces of cake so we could have that as well. Gina and her staff also take down all the decorations of yours from the reception and get all of your gifts together and they bring it over to your room, which was great since we did not have to worry about that,. I would absolutely recommend the Hanover Grande Ballroom to anyone getting married in the Lehigh Valley, you will not be disappointed. The only thing I would suggest would be to book early, because they book up quick due to how amazing the venue and Gina and her staff are. More...

"No stress, because of Gina"
This is what everyone heard from me all year leading up to (and AFTER) our wedding.

All of the reviews are true.

If you want a FUN, delicious wedding with nothing left to be desired, a place where you can focus on your love, friends, and family and be totally catered to, go with Hanover. They will make sure you have everything you want & need.

We picked Hanover anywhere else in the area because of their:

-Passion: You will feel the difference as soon as you talk to Gina on the phone. For every other venue, obviously, this is their business. For Gina, this is her passion. I knew as soon as we talked that we would be in good hands, and that I would never have to worry about a single thing. It all came true.

-SERVICE: The staff makes you feel like you are family - As if there are no other weddings going on at all - it just comes down to the fact that they LOVE what they do, making brides happy. Every i is dotted, every t is crossed, so you can just show up and have the best day of your life.

-Prices: Better than most of the places in the area. You can have your dream wedding and not go broke - we were on a very strict budget and Gina understood completely. Everything is well cared for, the staff is excellent, and they still somehow manage to go above and beyond (ie: honeymoon suite/cake/open bar included)

-Size: They can hold large or small weddings, and all of them look FABULOUS

-Food: A few of our friends had been to weddings at Hanover before. They said it they were the MOST FUN WEDDINGS they have ever attended, and that the FOOD was excellent. We are still hearing about how great the food was! They serve it as soon as it's made, so it doesn't sit in the kitchen for any time at all - wonderful!


Everything turned out better than we could have imagined. Our Maitre'D on the day of the event catered to our every need.

Thank you Gina for a wonderful day, and year. I will miss our calls - you are fabulous.

Where do I even start? Jesse and I planned our wedding for 2 years with Gina. The wedding was a country-themed wedding with a lot of handmade decor. Gina and Amanda made that Ballroom amazingly BEAUTIFUL! I can't tell you how many people commented on how beautiful the place looked.

The food........OUT OF THIS WORLD! Everyone said the food was DELICIOUS! Gina walked through each wedding package with us and altered the package to what 'we' wanted.

The ballroom was very spacious and accommodating for 270 guests. The bathrooms were very nice and clean. The 2 bars were big and the service was fast.

They gave us a complimentary bridal suite the night of our wedding at the Hampton Inn & Suites. We walked into the suite with 2 pieces of cake, a bottle of champagne, and a Congratulations card from Gina, Amanda and the staff at Hanover Grande Ballroom. The anniversary cake was in the refrigerator for us to take home.

Congrats Jesse and Krystel on the Best Western billboard was a great added touch for the guests to see as they arrived at the Ballroom.

Gina, Amanda, and the staff at Hanover Grande Ballroom made our wedding dreams come true. I can't stop ranting and raving about how awesome the place looked, food tasted, and service rocked.

Job Well Done!

An incredible value! Gina and the team were tremendously professional and ran everything smoothly with our large wedding of around 200 people. My wife and I had service and drinks all night, whatever we wanted when we wanted it. Truly was the perfect place for our wedding without being excessively overpriced. Food was good, but the only knock from our guests was dinner came out late and was only warm due to speeches running late. My wife and I went to tables during dinner so we ate ours after sitting out and it was still a good dinner, no matter what the temperature. Plenty of options to choose from for the menu. We did the chicken and grouper. Appetizers were really good as well. The room was set up beautifully and the planning was not bad at all with Gina's help. More...

Initially, I had not heard much about this venue so I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to book it. (I always thought that I would have a country club wedding) However, when I saw everything that the Hanover Grande Ballroom had to offer my thoughts changed completely! Their wedding coordinator is such a doll and will bend over backwards to meet all of your requests. They provided us with risers for the band we brought in and had two open bars going throughout the reception. They provided us with centerpieces and worked with us to make the room look incredible. The food was delicious, which is a rare find when it comes to banquet food. The packages that they offer are very fairly priced, and you get so much for your money. I would recommend this venue to ANYONE and they gave us the wedding of our dreams! More...

We used the Best Western Lehigh Valley as our wedding venue. The Hanover Grande Ballroom was an amazing location for a wedding. The staff there was helpful and extremely professional. In the planning stages they helped us conceptualize our ideas and really get our heads in the game for the reception. On the day of the extremely professional service team ensured everything ran like clockwork. My Bride and I weren't concerned with anything and had no complaints from anyone in our 140 person wedding. If you are getting married in the Lehigh Valley Area, I would highly recommend looking here for a venue. The food and service could not be better especially for the price. More...

We had our rehearsal dinner and reception here. I should write a review for the restaurant itself that we used for the rehearsal dinner, it is called Krista's and is located here. We also had a block of rooms reserved for our guests since everyone was traveling from out of town. Wedding guests get a discounted price of $99. We had the Lehigh Room, aka Fireside Ball room. It is the smaller room and was perfect for our size wedding (we had 60 guests total, including ourselves). There is a dance floor, bar, direct kitchen access for the wait staff, and a recessed spot for the DJ. There is also a screen and projector, we did not utilize this but it is interesting that it is available in case of slide shows. There are also 2 patios. We had a daytime reception (1pm start). Unfortunately there were terrible storms just a few days before so the awnings were destroyed, but nonetheless it was very nice to have outside access throughout the party. I'm not sure how much it was since my parents paid, it wasn't cheap but it was worth the price for the sake of a great room and great service. Some of the places I looked at were expensive AND dumpy! I estimated the cost. I know for all the meals alone it was over $5,000. They had many meal options, including combos. We did a steak/chicken combo and IT WAS THE MOST DELICIOUS FOOD I HAVE EVER HAD AT A WEDDING! The chicken was moist and the steak was SO incredibly savory. You also get soup, bread salad, 3 or 4 different appetizers (you choose out of a list of about 10 ) for cocktail hour, and PREMIUM liquor selection if you choose to have an open bar (I def recommend this!). You also get to choose 3 beers, I think we chose Yuengling, Blue Moon, and Miller light? They can get basically anything you want. The planner, Lori, hadn't even heard of Blue Moon, but they got it for our reception! There are also choices for the kiddies, and that is much cheaper. Also, anyone under 21 is cheaper since liquor is not included for their meal price. I think it ended up being about 80 something per person, and that includes EVERYTHING (even TAX!). We definitely found a hidden gem. Especially convenient since our guests could literally walk back to their rooms afterwards! Working with Lori was great, she is the wedding coordinator there and is super helpful and knowledgeable. It is much more complex to plan a reception than I thought, but she helps you through every step so you don't miss anything! The website is great, lots of info for the weddings including function room capacity charts, wedding menu, and catering menu if you want them to cater I suppose. I would definitely recommend using them for a reception, everything went perfect that day and having chosen the perfect reception hall played a major part in that! More...
