Saturday my fiance and I attended the wedding of Elizabeth Wallace and Elliott Stranzl here in Lehigh Valley. After a beautiful ceremony at the Packer Memorial Chapel on the campus of Lehigh University, we headed to Historic Hotel Bethlehem for the reception.
The cocktail hour was held on the third floor of the hotel, which had a balcony overlooking the ballroom. It was a little crowded in this area for the 200 people that attended, but all-in-all the staff did a good job getting around with butlered hors d'oeuvres. There were also a few set stations with sushi, shrimp, fruit and cheese, etc.
The main ballroom was decorated lovely and had a very intimate feeling to it. Every detail went off without a hitch from the dj to the food service. In fact, the servers were almost military-like as they entered the room, one by one, in an organized pattern.
Our meal started with a nice salad and bread, followed by intermezzo. I chose the pecan-crusted chicken, which was served with red skinned mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. I made a good choice. Michael chose the steak, which he said had excellent flavor, although I think the men at our table were still a little hungry after their entree. Desserts were served buffet-style and included cannolis, chocolate cake, coconut cake and a lot more.
Hotel Bethlehem was an excellent choice to hold an event like this. I know that we were both impressed. Have you been to any events at Historic Hotel Bethlehem?
