Upscale and traditional are the offerings on hand for weddings at the Springfield Country Club, located in the city of West Springfield.
The 18-hole golf course on 180 acres sits below a sprawling 1920s club house with a wrap around deck.
Weddings I've filmed here have a formal, yet fun, vibe.
I like filming here because of the change in scenery. Whereas many Western Massachusetts venues offer stunning mountain-top views, Springfield Country Club is a bit more down to Earth. Instead of looking down on the trees, you're at eye level. It feels like you're immersed in nature rather than being in awe of it. Both are great!
Thought I'd show you a sparkler photo I took here. These sparkler shots have become a of a hallmark for me. Others try (usually in PhotoShop - that's not how it's done), but they can't capture the magic that I do. Other than removing a stray hair here or a blemish there, this photo hasn't been edited.
The Springfield Country Club has a new-ish owner. The club was purchased from members in 2017 by The Hannoushes, a well-known Western Massachusetts family with a host of successful, local businesses. For this venture, Camile Hannoush is taking the lead. He's upgraded the grounds, created smaller private spaces for meetings and added a posh restaurant.
