Spigener-Nobles Wedding, Summer 2015
Date: Saturday, June 27, 2015AlexMC_web
Bride: Mary Catherine Spigener
Groom: Alex Nobles
Photographer: Mark Williams Studio
Floral: Mark Williams Studio
Catering: Blue Tie Catering, Georgia Southern University
Cakes: Emily Hendley
Entertainment: Cashmere“When planning my daughter’s wedding reception, we wanted to find a venue that would be spacious, allowing for many tables, a band and room to dance. The Nessmith-Lane Center was perfect! The Atrium was a great space for the bars and food stations. This allowed for even more space for dining and dancing in the Ballroom. The tables, chairs and tablecloths were included in the rental. How nice it was to walk into the Ballroom and see everything just as I had requested.

What a great experience I had working with the staff at the Nessmith-Lane Center. They were helpful and very professional in all aspects of the planning process. The food was reasonably priced, and I received many positive compliments. I would highly recommend the Nessmith-Lane Center for a memorable wedding reception!”
