Welcome to Our New Blog!!


Hi, I’m Cortney Zimmerman, Assistant Director of Events at Capriotti’s, where I’ve seen so many amazing Wedding Receptions!  Every day I get to help people plan the biggest day of their lives.  I get chills watching those dreams come true when the day finally arrives. I love being part of what really is a love story – for the couple being married & for their families and friends.  It’s where Daddy dances with his little girl or the Mother of the Groom with her dashing son as she remembers the smell of baby shampoo on his hair all those years ago – it seems like yesterday. It’s where newlyweds share their first dance and dinner together as a married couple in front of the most important people in their lives. It’s at these moments, at these times, at this place – that’s magic!

That magic – as you know – is years in the making with literally hundreds of decisions in all of the planning.  You can’t afford to not have Capriotti’s on your list of places to see once you’re engaged – it’s one of the first decisions an engaged couple make together and it is crucial. Capriotti’s Palazzo in McAdoo (minutes from Hazleton & I-81) is a beautiful, modern, fully-accessible facility built in 2012.  Let me guide you through some resources that show you who we are!

Capriotti’s Palazzo has hosted hundreds of Wedding Receptions since moving here from Capriotti’s Hall in Tresckow four years ago.  We’ve also hosted Wedding Ceremonies in the Palazzo, as well as in the new outdoor covered patio area which was built during the summer of 2015.  We don’t do “cookie-cutter” Weddings! The entire Palazzo becomes your home for the day, fully customized to your vision!

One of the most important points I’d like to emphasize is that all Wedding Packages are not made equal. Be sure to know what’s included – and what’s not!  At Capriotti’s, all of our Wedding Packages include items or services that other venues add-on to the original cost.  Be sure to ask – don’t assume! Use “Questions for Your Event Venue” from our Homepage and other fantastic guides you’ll find there.

Use the Wedding Planning Tools, the Wedding Budget Planner and  Wedding Checklist.  Finally, check our Recommended Vendors for other services you may need. Finally, follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube where you can check out videos like this!

Oh, one more thing about me you might be interested to know. Long before I began working here at Capriotti’s – I booked my Wedding Reception here. The old saying is “People plan, God laughs” – and my wedding was postponed. We finally set a new date, equipped with a flower girl that is the apple of our eyes, for April of this year, so I know what it’s like to be a very soon-to-be bride!  I chose Capriotti’s for my Wedding Day – twice – so I’m uniquely able to share my experiences with you as we plan your big day!

Please, feel free to leave a comment or question here, email me, or give me a call. I’ll be happy to help!
