In our industry, it’s impossible to execute an incredible event without the help of other dynamic vendors. In our Vendor Features, we learn more about the people who we love to work with event after event, and year after year. Next up is Mark McCool, Event Specialist at Talamore Country Club.

Mark McCool has been in the events and entertainment industry for 32 years, and has spent those years as an Event Specialist at Talamore Country Club. Talamore is located in Ambler, PA, and has always looked to be on the cutting edge. For larger functions, they offer the Conservatory Ballroom, which features a two-story Mezzanine Ballroom with a Grand Staircase, 30-foot waterfall, and a 1500 square foot marble dance floor with seating for up to 350 guests!

For smaller events, Talamore’s Magnolia Room features vaulted and cathedral ceilings, and accommodates up to 150 guests. They also offer the Monet Garden Room, which opens out onto their lush tropical gardens and flagstone patios with breathtaking views of the golf course and swan-appointed lakes. This climate-controlled space is perfect for your ceremony or cocktail hour.
