Wedding Feature: Kelly and Ben’s Big Day
Posted on: April 18, 2016

Kelly Torlone and Ben Abbott were married on December 12, 2015. After exchanging vows in their church, the couple joined us at the Hampshire House for a lively reception fitting for such a charming couple.

When they arrived, the couple started by taking photographs throughout our magnificently and classically designed hallways, staircases and rooms. The couple was caught canoodling on the spiral staircase. Because of the timing of their nuptials, Hampshire House had recently been gilded and donned with greenery in preparation for the holidays. The couple was able to take advantage of our extra décor during the holidays for a reception feel that is cheery and bright. The couple enjoyed ornaments, wreaths and decorated Christmas trees.

The couple’s wedding reception was held on two floors. The couple and their guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dessert on the third floor while dinner and dancing were held on the third floor in The Library, our classic style room with rich, built-in wooden shelves and walls lined with books. We prepared with room with long tables and golden rail chairs to accommodate all of their guests. The room was also equipped with microphones for speeches, and we made sure there was plenty of room for the band and dancing.

We are honored that Kelly and Ben chose Hampshire House to celebrate this joyous beginning to their marriage. We are glad the beautiful couple would enjoy the holiday decorations as an added touch to our special venue.
