CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 AUTUMN IN THE VALLEY 13 spike cakes and cupcakes, too. Marsocci remembered a wedding where a couple hired someone to dress like a tree, and hand out pieces of paper shaped like leaves for guests to write words of advice for the married couple to read over. Once guests entered the facility, she explained, the "tree" would jump out, surprising wedding reception attendees. She also recalls a Halloween-themed wedding, where everything was black and orange. It was the couple's favorite holiday, she said, and on their sweet- heart table were skeletons that read "Mr." and "Mrs." Aside from holiday-themed events, including Saint Patrick's Day and Fourth of July weddings, Marsocci said she's also planned and prepared plenty of cultural weddings, ranging from weddings where Indian tradi- tions are celebrated to Italian, Chinese, Nigerian, Liberian, Laotian, Pakistani and Portuguese celebrations. Flanagan said with Marsocci's exper- tise and knowledge about trends, her attention to detail and her understand- ing of different cultures, she's able to produce weddings that make everyone feel at home. "With everything that's new and com- ing out, Tiffany's got a handle on it. She's introducing people to things they don't even know exist," Flanagan said. Regardless of the theme of the recep- tion or ceremony, Marsocci said, at Kirkbrae, "they're not cookie cutter weddings." Marsocci, who graduated from The Wheeler School in Providence before receiving a degree in hospitality and event management at Johnson and Wales University and later, an interna- tional business degree from Fairfield University in Connecticut, grew up at the Kirkbrae Country Club with her family. "It has a lot of meaning to me," she told The Breeze. When she put together her first cli- ents' wedding, she said, she was anxious to start planning the next. "I just probably love weddings more than anyone you will ever meet," Marsocci said. TIFFANY MARSOCCI, a Lincoln native, says Kirkbrae Country Club organizes an average of about 100 weddings a year at the facility and in her role as wedding and special events director. Kirkbrae Country Club, nestled at 197 Old River Road in Lincoln, overlooks an 18-hole golf course where couples tend to take wedding photos, says Tiffany Marsocci, director of weddings and special events.
