What are some recent reviews from couples who have gotten married at Mechanics Hall?
“Mechanics Hall is a beautiful historic structure which can accommodate events of various sizes in separate venues. It is managed by Mr. Robert Kennedy and his professional staff who take great pride in their work.
We were primarily assisted by Diana Casavecchia, who is not only the director of sales but a qualified and dedicate event coordinator. She works with a team whose objective is to make your event a memorable experience for your guests and an event that you will be proud to have sponsored at Mechanics Hall.”
“To say Mechanic’s Hall is beautiful would be an understatement. It was the first venue we visited out of three, and maybe this was our mistake, because nowhere else could possibly compare. We are so glad we had our wedding at such a magnificent location.
We were enamored with the spaces for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. As a bride, and seeing friends and family get married prior to my own, I know the many intricate details that can go into making your wedding venue space your own. The gorgeous and stunning beauty of Mechanics Hall is that you have very little to worry about. The ornate features of the hall and throughout the building provide its own elegance and décor. To me, this meant less I had to worry about in the long run. I felt like our wedding night was a fairytale, largely because of the beautiful location that we hosted our wedding.
Right from the start, the highly versatile staff that helped show us around and answer our questions was beyond courteous and accommodating to our schedule and inquisitive minds. This courteous and helpful nature did not stop there. When we signed on to have Mechanics Hall as our wedding venue, any questions or needs I had along the way, they were quick to help answer those questions. This lead right up to the week of the wedding, where my coordinator, Joan Stewart, went above and beyond ANYTHING I could have hoped for! We had our final meeting with her, where I dropped off all my decorations and details, and she assured me that not only did I not have to set anything up, but also I had nothing to worry about. And it was perfect! Being able to not stress about those details allowed me to really enjoy my wedding from start to finish.
The rest of the staff did a fantastic job catering to our guests during our wedding, providing wait staff and bar services that were friendly and fantastic. There are so many words that can describe our experience, but classy sums up the location and the staff.”
