We know we always say this, but we have some pretty awesome wedding clients. Just recently we had the ultimate honor of working with Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki and his fiancé (now wife) Halle Proper! 

The Happy Couple  

Originally from Jersey, Mike and Halle met and fell in love during their time at Penn State University. While they both currently reside in Florida, they wanted to have their wedding in their home state of New Jersey so that friends and family could easily attend.

The Venue 

If you’ve ever been to a wedding at The Ashford Estate, you know that this Allentown-based venue is unlike any other… Set upon hundreds of acres of preserved farmland, the expansive estate is a balanced blend of quaint and sophisticated. It features a barn chapel for onsite ceremonies, a conservatory for cocktail hour, exquisite accommodations for the wedding party and a magnificent reception ballroom. In essence, the sprawling property is equipped with all the makings for an extravagant celebration. 

We were thrilled that Mike and Halle chose this stunning property for their big day! The Ashford Estate was the perfect option for their extensive guest list, onsite ceremony and need for a centrally-located destination.   

Event Enhancements 

We were honored that this happy couple chose us at SCE Event Group to help carry out their matrimonial vision! Like most couples, these two wanted to throw the party of a lifetime. For us, that meant taking the reception to the next level with our top-of-the-line event enhancements

We worked with the newlyweds to create custom production services that matched the energy and vibe of their celebration. Mike and Halle’s add-ons included: lighting solutions, spark fountains and live performances from a drummer and saxophone player. 

Check out the video below to see some highlights from the big day! 


If you can’t tell from the video, there was never a dull moment at Mike and Halle’s reception. These guests knew how to party! Halle and Mike wanted an energetic, danceable playlist for their celebration – so we were sure to blast a mix of 2000’s, today’s top hits and classics. In homage to the couple’s shared collegiate experience, we even made sure the Penn State Zombie Nation anthem made its way over the sound system…
