holiday1 holiday2 holiday3A holiday party at The Willow Room is sure to be a memorable event for all. Choose festive napkin colors, enjoy holiday decorations and sounds of the season as you host your family, friends, or employees.

To request menu information, just fill out our online form. Or, feel free to give our sales manager, Melody, a call at 724-379-5666.

The Willow Room ballroom can be broken down into three sections, so if your party is on the smaller side, we can still accommodate you in an intimate setting. Each ballroom presents with crystal chandeliers and panoramic windows, so if you rent one section or all three, you get the same feel and style.

Even though it’s Summer, and a holiday party might be the farthest thing from your mind, now is the time to secure your requested date and let your guests know in advance so you can be sure that everyone can attend.

The Willow Room is located on the fourth floor of WillowPointe Plaza in Rostraver Township, right off Route 51. With easy access to major highways, it’s a great central location for hosting guests coming from a variety of locales.

If you would like to come in for a tour, or have any other questions, feel free to call or fill out our online form. We look forward to meeting you and learning more about the type of event you would like to host this year!

Our site is broken down into three sections: weddings, corporate, and social, so no matter the event you are planning, you are directed to the pertinent information right away. Under each section you can view a room diagram, request menus or a tour, view our preferred vendors, see our AV capabilities, get directions, and so much more.

Chef Haberle also has his own section on the site, where he continues to share his recipes and even offers video tutorials to walk you through the process. Our blog is updated weekly, bringing you our newest specials, events, trends in the event industry, community news, and more.

Please visit our new website, which is also mobile and tablet friendly, here.

Creating a brand new website was one daunting task, but we are very proud of the results. Since we recently celebrated ten years in business, we thought, what a better way to mark this milestone than a complete site redesign.

We want to send a HUGE thank you to CML Media Consulting, especially Chrissy and Andrew for their dedication and efforts for this project. They were true partners in our quest to develop this new and innovative site.

A big thanks also to Laurel Mountain Photography, one of our newest preferred vendors, for providing so many beautiful wedding shots throughout the site.

We have also created new billboards and ads, for a really fresh and new look for 2015. Thank you to Lynda at Stewart Creative for the beautiful and chic designs! Check out our newest billboard below. This is located on Route 119 in Greensburg, just a mile or so past the King’s Restaurant.

Introducing Our Newest Preferred Vendor: Laurel Mountain Photography

January 14, 2015 at 8:18 pm (News and Events) (, , , , , , , , )

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 3.00.04 PM

1. How long have you been in business? Tell us about yourself. 

Laurel Mountain Photography has been in business for eight years! We are Award Winning, Fine Art Boutique Wedding Photographers. We started out in Fine Art Photography, photographing the nature and architecture around us, and would sell our prints at art shows. As time went on, we decided to dive into weddings and it is there that we found our true calling. Our background and perspectives are very different from the standard portrait trained photographers. Coming from a fine art background, we provide our couples with stunning backdrops, creative editing, and innovative ideas. We love producing creative artistic photographs that combine gorgeous backgrounds with our amazing couples and leave them with works of art to remind them of their wedding day! We are a small boutique company which means that we take on a limited number of weddings per year in order to provide our couples with personalized service, albums, and prints. We love getting to know our couples and helping them through the wedding planning process!

 

2. How many photographers are on staff? Do you also offer videography?

We have six photographers on our staff but our primary leads are Anastasia, John, Lisa and Mark.  We are a family-owned business, my husband and I own the company and my parents work with us as well! We put all of our time and energy into photography, so at this time we do not offer videography services.

 

3. What special or incentive will you be offering Willow Room couples?

We are offering a 16×20 inch standout metallic print to every bride that books with us through The Willow Room!

 

4. What is your favorite thing about photographing weddings at The Willow Room?

Having a well-run reception venue is an extremely important part of your wedding day.  The staff at The Willow Room know the ins and outs of receptions and always make sure that everything runs smoothly and on time. The setting is beautiful and offers some wonderful spots for photographs, as well!

 

5. What packages do you offer?

We offer a variety of packages that are all customizable.  All of our packages come with two award-winning photographers, a private online gallery, a flash drive of all of the high resolution proofs (anywhere from 700 to over 1,000 photos depending on the day) with full reprint rights, a proof book that is yours to keep, and all editing and effects!  Our standard packages are listed below!

The $13,000 All-Inclusive Willow Wedding Package | The Willow Room

November 12, 2014 at 5:36 pm (News and Events, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

As a bride and a groom you have a lot to think about when it comes to planning your wedding. There are countless websites, apps, and of course the advice from family and friends on what you need to do and how you need to do it.

But try to remember, it’s your day! And at The Willow Room, we have created an all-inclusive wedding package with everything you need at the amazing price of $13,000 for up to 150 guests. And that price includes all taxes and services charges, so no hidden costs! You can always add additional enhancements to the package, but that is completely up to you! This package is available for Friday or Sunday weddings in 2015 or off-season (winter) weddings.

Today, we break down the package and explain everything it includes:

You get the Venue for 5 hours (four hours open bar), the bar is closed during dinner. You also receive an Open Bar with our Silver Bar Package. You can always upgrade your liquor for an additional fee if you want something specific for your big day.

You will have access to the private Bridal Suite and your own Bridal Butler. The Bridal Suite is a separate room away from the ballroom with walls lined in mirrors, outlets for plugging in chargers or curling irons, and compartments to keep your belongings. It also has a private bathroom, complete with a tub! This room is for the bridal party ONLY. You can go to the room anytime during the reception to use the restroom, freshen up, or just take a moment away from the hustle and bustle. Some of our brides use this room to get ready if they are also having their ceremony with us. Your personal Bridal Butler will be one of our staff members and they will exclusively take care of you and your bridal party all evening.

Staff Spotlight: Christine Gilotty

April 2, 2014 at 7:15 pm (News and Events) (, , , , )

How long have you been working with The Willow Room, and what positions do you do?

 I have worked at The Willow Room for four and a half years and I am a server.  

Events are always changing. What new trend do you see a lot? Or what tradition are you glad is still around?

 All events are different.  For weddings, I like that a lot of brides are wearing colored shoes with their white dresses and I always like when the bridesmaid dresses are short rather than long.  Not all receptions have cookie tables, but I like that old tradition along with the money dance.

What are your favorite types of events to work, and why? Any special memories from a particular event?

I always like working the smaller showers. I love all the different ways our guests find to decorate for babies and brides!  My most memorable shower was  for a baby and they had a huge stork standing in the lobby to welcome their guests!  Loved it!

What do you like to do outside of work? Hobbies? 

Most people who know me know that I love to paint.  I have a degree in art and I am a traditional watercolor painter.  My favorite subjects are children and animals. 

WR Note: Thanks, Christine, for sharing a little about yourself!
We appreciate your service and love having you as part of our team.
