About Us

Premier Catering & Events at Genetti Ballrooms, located in Hazelton, Pennsylvania, announces $1.2 million renovation project.  The renovation project will include the facility’s three ballrooms, parlors, restrooms, lobby and corridor. The renovations are expected to be completed by the end of the year.   

Their experienced wedding staff helps you set up the venue or combination of venues to suit your needs. It has been catering and helping create beautiful weddings for brides and grooms for over 60 years. The location offers three different on-site venues for you to choose from, but the company can also go to off-site locations to assist in setting up your wedding.

The Chandelier Ballroom is the largest setting available at the venue. It has twin staircases that lead to a beautiful decorated landing to give you an amazing entrance to your event. The ballroom can seat up to 1,000 people for your event.

The Gardens can be used alone for your wedding day. It can hold 600 people standing or 350 seated. If you wish, you can use this along with other areas of the venue, like the ballroom to enlarge the space and enjoy the beautiful weather.

The Tent is an ideal choice for an outdoor venue. The open-sided tent lets you enjoy the gardens while keeping your tables covered in case of weather. This area can hold 250 guests.


What You Should Know

Each reception package meal comes with choices of appetizers, main entrees and salads with the exception of the brunch menu. The brunch has a different selection of breakfast and lunch entrees to be served during a four-hour reception. The brunch reception cannot start after noon.

The brunch menu's additional features include:

  • A wine or non-alcoholic toast
  • Special occasion cake
  • Fresh floral centerpieces
  • Coffee, tea, decaf or soda served during the reception

The other five packages includes the items listed before, plus:

  • Choice of chair sash in a variety of colors
  • Floral centerpieces (value of this varies depending on the package you choose)
  • Traditional wedding cake
  • Overnight stay for the bride and groom

Along with the menu options, the venue offers an Overlay Program. This program covers the linens, napkins, much of the decor and special items like ice sculptures, chocolate fountains and cheese fountains. The outdoor ceremonies that occur in the garden also come with their own options, like insect control, trellis, luminaries, horse-drawn carriages and butterfly releases. Some of these may incur additional packages to the base package fees, but the wedding planner can assist you in choosing what fits your budget and the vision you have for your day.


Extra Perks

The venue offers private tastings for you and other couples that are using the venue throughout the year for their wedding. The wedding planner keeps your day's events scheduled to the minute so that you don't have to worry or stress about getting things done. She also assists with your announcements.

Genetti Ballrooms is by far the best bang for your buck. My husband and I decided last minute that we were going to have a "formal" wedding instead of a backyard wedding and this was the place for us! We literally had it planned one month in advanced, but Pat and Amy were... Read More extremely helpful and helped us have the wedding of our dreams! We had a Wednesday brunch wedding, and everything was fabulous. All of our family and friends absolutely thought the place was stunning, the food was amazing, and the servers were extremely polite. They helped make our day stress free, even though we did not do a rehearsal the night before. They answer phone calls / emails very very quickly, and help you every step of the way. I will forever recommend Genetti Ballrooms to everyone! I highly suggest you checking this place out if you'd like to have a beautiful wedding for a great price. Thank you Pat and Amy! - Kristel and Mark

My name is Danielle Dorzinsky and I am the owner of the Conservatory of Dance in Mountain Top. Each year our school hosts a show for the families and friends of our students. Two years ago I was looking for a venue to host our event and after a few bad experiences with local... Read More establishments I called Genettis, a place that although I was very familiar with the name, I thought they may be out of my price range due their well-known reputation for hosting ultra-elegant events. I was so pleasantly surprised that, yes the facility was elegant and offered countless options for my show, but that it was so reasonably priced. However, the most gratifying part of my experience with Genetti’s is the personal attention and kindness that I received throughout the entire course of my functions from planning to the actual event itself. Patrick, Amy and the entire staff were hands on and so helpful with every aspect of my event. I was so pleased with the entire experience that I ultimately decided to have Genetti’s host perhaps the most important party of my life, my wedding! Once again Patrick and his staff were so accessible and ready to guide me through the entire process step by step and made sure that my reception was everything I hoped it would be. In addition to the beautiful facility and the wonderful staff, I was amazed at the number of options that were afforded me when it came to pick the menu for the shows as well as for my reception. The food was amazing and with the wide variety of options I was able to ensure that all of my guests were represented in the food choices. I intend to continue hosting my yearly shows at Genetti’s and would highly recommend this venue for anyone who is looking for excellent personal service, elegant accommodations and surprisingly reasonable rates. I believe that Genetti’s represents the perfect combination of classy, ultra-elegant accommodations coupled with down to earth, hands on personal attention that I feel is uncommon in most establishments of this caliber.

As a military family planning a wedding from a different state was incredibly hard but Amy and Patrick made everything easy for us. I was so nervous choosing a venue I never saw in person, that is until I finally saw how beautiful our ballroom was and the garden area. On the day of our wedding it rained and had to have an indoor wedding ceremony. Unfortunately there wasn't much we could do when Mother Nature takes her course but Patrick made sure that it was still going to be beautiful, and it was. Patrick helped so much the day before and the day of the wedding; he made sure the wedding was flowing, the guests were where they needed to be, and the wedding party was fed. When the food was coming out we decided that this was the best time for us to walk around and talk with our guests. Patrick made sure that when we were ready to eat, our foods were going to be warm. I couldn't be more pleased with the staff. Absolutely everything was perfect. All of our friends and family had nothing but good things to say.

Pat and Amy and the rest of the staff at Genetti Ballrooms went above and beyond for our wedding.

Read More amazing evening at one of the best weddings ever (which is a common review we get from our family and friends). With multiple options for menu, decor, and timing, we were able to make our wedding exactly the day we wanted. The place looked amazing and the food was great. On top of all of this, the price was unbeatable. We knew that we wanted to have a very large wedding (we had 30 people in our bridal party) and that prices increase as the number of people increase. Genetti Ballrooms was the only place within 35 miles that could have made our perfect day possible. The afterglow event was a highlight for many. After the normal activities of dinner and dancing, our guests were thrilled to have a few more hours to be under the stars and enjoy late night snacks and dancing. We set-up corn hole boards and fire pits and the guests got to continue the night of both relaxation and fun. At first, we were hesitant to choose Genetti Ballrooms because it has been an open establishment for so long (both of our parents had their receptions there) and we didn't know if it would seem dated. Pat and the staff have continued to improve their offerings to keep the place an amazing option for newly engaged couples. It was completely modern and exciting, and now we just get to share the memory of remarkable weddings with our parents. HIGHLY recommend. Could not have asked for a better event.

Each decorated with its own personal touch. The cocktail room was elegant with the three piece band while waiting for our entrance. Drapes were pulled back when the guests were asked to enter the dining ballroom that had a grand appearance. We had our introductions and did our first dance in the cocktail room while our guests watched in the dining ballroom through the pulled back drapes. It was absolutely magnificent as we danced our first dance, of course with a little help from our ballroom dance instructor. It does not get much more magical than that. When the wedding party sat down and dinner was served the drapes were dropped which gave an intimate feeling in the dining ballroom. To our guests surprise the drapes were opened to a newly decorated room for dancing, desert, and a little bit of reception entertainment. The night was not over just yet as we had an afterglow in the tent outside for our after hour guests which fit both my husband and my decorating preferences. The transition from room to room ran smoothly. It was spectacular!! The memories and moments I had at Genetti's will last a lifetime!!! Not to forget the beautiful photos we have from the alluring gardens. Thank you Patrick, Amy and all the staff for all your hard work and dedication!
