Valentine’s Day is a very popular day for weddings, especially if it falls on a Saturday. Well, 2009 was just such a year. On February 14 2009 our wedding clients were Ken & Holly Vierling. The wedding reception took place at Twelve Oaks Mansion in Mars Pennsylvania.
Twelve Oaks Mansion is a new banquet facility that just opened in 2008 and is quickly becoming a very popular location for wedding receptions. Twelve Oaks Mansion sits up on the hill across from The Springfield Grille on Rt. 228 in Mars / Cranberry Twp. The banquet facility was just recently constructed and is absolutely gorgeous. It offers 2 separate rooms, a smaller room that is perfect for cocktails and the larger ballroom for dining and dancing.
The evening started off with guests enjoying cocktails and appetizers in the smaller room. During this time, a photo montage was playing on 2 flat panel LCD televisions that are located in the cocktail area. Once the bridal party arrived, guests were invited to take their seats in the ballroom and the bridal party was formally introduced. After the introductions and cake cutting, Ken & Holly were great sports as they played The Newlywed Game. If you have not been to an event where we have played The Newlywed Game, be sure to ask us about it. It’s a nice way to kick off the evening.
At the conclusion of dinner, Ken & Holly shared in their first dance as Husband and Wife and then also danced with the bridal party and their parents before we started open dancing. The evening was full of many amazing and exciting moments as guests participated in a Conga Line, The Circle of Love, YMCA, Cha Cha Slide and several other interactive dances.
The event ended around 11:00 pm and to my surprise, almost all of the guests were still there. I am sure that this will be a day Ken & Holly and all of their guests will cherish for years to come.
Below are some photographs from the event.
