Boffo wedding at the Hall of Springs

boffo hall of springs wedding

Wow.

We've been to more than a few events at the Hall of Springs, but we've never seen it look it did for the recent wedding of Jaimee DiGesare and Sean Willcoxon. (That photo above is by their wedding photographer, Joe Elario Photography.)

And it sounds like the food was equally extravagant.

From event planner Sarah Chilson's Aisle Files blog:

During cocktail hour the guests enjoyed a seafood raw bar and sushi station as well as a small plates display consisting of mini crepes and a gourmet mushroom saute station!

Butler passed selections were also offered to guests and included lobster paninis with chipolte cream, artichoke parmesan cakes, braised short rib herb dumplings, mango coconut chicken, caviar jars, and lollipop lamb chops.

For the sit down dinner guests started with a delicious pasta course to kick off the meal. Guests enjoyed gnocci with chianti braised short rib ragu and gorgonzola cheese as well as breadsticks & flatbreads that were on each table with EVOO, balsamic drizzle, goat cheese humus and olive tapenade for dipping!

The salad course consisted of frisee and baby arugula with diced roasted golden & red beets, goat cheese, candied walnuts, pistachio crema, and sesame seed vinaigrette.

Each guest was served a filet with a delicious lobster tail for the main course. The tail was served perched on a seafood cake and the meal was accompanied with halved baby brussel sprouts which were deep fried and dusted with salt & pepper topped with a balsamic vinegar drizzle. Family style mushroom risotto was served to each table as well.

Maybe it's not surprising that all the stops were pulled out. The groom is the general manager at Aperitivo Bistro, which is owned by the Mazzone Management Group, which also handles the catering for the Hall of Springs.

I don't think I have enough towels to clean up all this drool.

That sounds awesome - first of all pink lighting, and ALL OF THAT FOOOOOOD!

Good grief, how much do you think that costs?? Obviously money is no object here!

I am sure the bride and groom are both lovely people, but *yawn*

Are we still doing self-indulgent, conspicuous consumption?

Joe Elario did my wedding photos too - he's very talented! And not cheap.

And the point of this is...

Voyeurism?

How some people are living large, recession be damned?

@KM: We saw the pictures online and thought they were remarkable -- a local place that most people have probably been to at some point was done up in a way most people had probably never seen. There was no point beyond that.

Eh.

Beautiful, yes, but I've attended weddings at the Hall of Springs and it's much too large and cold...just doesn't have that intimate feel that a wedding should have. But that's just me.
