  • Andrea Maturo

    Andrea Maturo, Catering Sales Director, has been part of the team since April 2012. Andrea loves working at a venue with newly renovated event spaces that are full of character and charisma. And she loves the opportunity to connect with her brides and grooms and event planners at a personal level, and meeting so many exciting people at an exciting time in their lives. “Spending time with each new couple doesn’t feel like a business transaction. I love getting to know them as friends.” She takes pride in making sure that clients don’t feel rushed, in encouraging them to ask a million questions, and sharing the moment when they see the ballroom for the first time on their big day. Her advice? “Take it a day at a time. Ask for advice – that’s what we’re here for!” Andrea is devoted to her family, to her dog, and to embarking on new culinary adventures. She even had her own wedding at a Hotels Unlimited wedding venue and it was everything she’s dreamed of!

    Susan Zambrana

    Susan Zambrana, Catering Sales Coordinator, just recently joined the Windsor Ballroom team, but she already feels right at home. She comes from a retail background, so working face to face with clients is something she has a huge passion for. Event planning started for Susan in her high school days, and her love for it has carried on ever since! Her favorite part about her job is meeting every unique personality that walks through her door. She says, “helping to make the small dreams in people’s lives come true, now those are the victories that make this job special.” As a Disney lover at heart, Susan thinks no dream is too small, and she will work with brides and grooms to make sure that everything on their special day runs smoothly and just how they envisioned.

    Diana Cacace

    Diana Cacace, Catering Sales Administrator, began in hospitality after working at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL on their Disney College Program in 2015 as a character attendant. Shortly after she got her degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management and started working for HU in Catering Sales. It’s no surprise that Diana is fun loving and outgoing, and these characteristics are shown in her everyday work. Her favorite part about each day is planning brides and grooms special days, and offering her advice and expertise. From her time at Disney she always remembers, “You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.” Her biggest strengths are her attention to detail and her wanting to always go above and beyond for her clients!

    Ty Vasquez

    Ty Vasquez, Banquet Manager, discovered his love of hospitality back in high school. He was honored to compete in Skills USA for Food and Beverage Service in both high school and college, and we’re proud to say that he placed third in the state of New Jersey! His experience working in hospitality, from a posh Florida country club to an up-and-coming Brick food truck, has taught him how to create an extraordinary experience for every guest. Ty’s savvy decision making and make-it-work attitude help ensure that no obstacle big or small will thwart your special day. He loves being part of a team where everyone pitches in, and takes special pride in maintaining the beauty of our Outdoor Patio and creating “oasis moments” for brides and grooms.  In his spare time, Ty is a committed member of the Spartan racing community… which keeps his stamina strong for busy wedding weekends!

    Jason Gershon

    Jason Gershon, General Manager, joined Hotels Unlimited in February 2017. He is very proud to lead our Holiday Inn of East Windsor and Windsor Ballroom’s team of dedicated hospitality professionals, as he helps execute everything from weddings to weekend getaways. Jason has over 24 years of hospitality experience. Over the years, he has worked at the front desk, reservations, guest services, bell stand, restaurant, bar, banquets, housekeeping, and catering sales – the full gamut of hospitality.  Above all, Jason is passionate about hospitality, and frequently travels to dining and resort destinations to share his passions with his wife and three sons. He has worked events for everyone from former presidents, senators, and governors to hall of fame athletes and famous actors, but every single wedding and event is special and exciting to him because it’s truly the most monumental day of someone’s life. His favorite thing about coming into work each day is that he never knows what the day will bring, but every day is an opportunity to make someone’s life a little bit better. His ability to adapt in any situation he’s facing and smile regardless of how bad things can get are just two of his many strengths. Each day at work Jason reminds himself of his favorite quote by Dr. Seuss, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not”.

    Thomas Leddy

    Thomas Leddy, Executive Chef at Windsor Ballroom, has been cooking up a storm in the kitchen for 35 plus years. He’s worked his way up from a dishwasher to an executive chef, and he has the skills to prove it. He always reminds himself to stay organized, and that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Out of all of the entrees from our new Premier and Exclusive wedding package menus, his favorite is the herb roasted French chicken topped with crab meat and béarnaise sauce. He likes it because he feels it’s something different that makes the Windsor Ballroom stand out. At the end of the day what keeps him coming back to the kitchen are the smiles that he sees when guests sit down to eat during an event. Customer happiness and satisfaction are what drive him to do his absolute best every day!

    Reviews We Love

    • We were thrilled with our experience at the Windsor Ballroom! Andrea, Ty, and the team were always so responsive to any questions that we had. They helped us to feel confident that all arrangements would be made as we desired. They gave us a phenomenal package deal for the ceremony and reception, which included a wedding cake from Chocolate Carousel. We could not have been more satisfied with the service and quality of the food and venue as at the Windsor Ballroom. It is a beautiful and elegant venue that offers very reasonable and comprehensive packages with a phenomenal staff dedicated to great service.

      — Gina, August 2018, Wedding
    • From the beginning, they were responsive and accommodating. Working with them to plan such a big day in our lives was super easy with zero stress. Leading up to the wedding they took some of the reigns which lessened the load on us. We worked with Andrea to finalize all the details and menu for the wedding. Then we coordinated with Ty who took inventory and instruction for all our added touches. It honestly felt like he shared our vision. The day of the wedding was perfect! Irma and Ty were in full control and made sure not only us but our closest family members were taken care of for the entirety of the event.

      — Loydes V, March 2018, Wedding
    • From the moment we walked in on our first tour, the catering team bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted for the price we were looking for. For finalizing the arrangements, we worked with Sydney who is super bubbly and excited and amazing at keeping everything in order. The food is phenomenal, the waitstaff is extremely courteous and go above and beyond, and the maitre d, Ty is basically Superman. The true hero of our tail, though, is Irma. Irma is one of the “captains” of the waitstaff, and she’s the most amazing woman ever. From the moment we got there for pictures, Irma was there for anything my husband or I needed. The entire team is incredible, with major kudos going to Sydney, Ty, and the amazing Irma!

    • I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all your hard work in making our wedding the best wedding EVER! Ty with his organization and charm, and Irma with her kindness and willingness to address any requests from our guests… just fabulous! They make quite the team! And ladies, my gazillion email questions weekly, thank you for being so patient and always answering with such detail to put my mind at ease… Sam – you took us from start to finish, mapping everything out…thank you so much! You are the BOMB! We are so happy that we chose the Windsor Ballroom. You guys made everything so easy and enjoyable! We have friends and family raving about how much fun they had. “BEST WEDDING EVER” is what everyone has been saying, which makes us feel so blessed and happy!

      — Paul + Brett, Married 11/11/2016
    • I can’t begin to imagine a more terrific outcome of my wedding day without first mentioning how awesome the Windsor staff was. They made the entire weekend so much more than just our wedding. They went above and beyond the call of duty with regards to them hosting our event. The dedication and diligence that Tara and the rest of the staff exuded was second to NONE! I can’t thank you ladies enough for your unparalleled commitment to excellence and for making our wedding the best day of my life.

      — Lacara + Tyree, August 2015
    • From our first visit to the final detailing appointment and finally the big day, Tara and her crew maintained such professionalism, patience, organization, and communication with us. As a bride, you’re always concerned that something will go wrong, something will be forgotten, or an important detail missed. I’m happy to say that our day was flawless and perfect! The newly renovated ballroom was stunning, and the food was AMAZING!

      — Christina + Adam, August 2015
    • From the moment we met Tara, we knew we had to have our wedding there. She is so sweet, caring and never leaves out any details – always right on point. Sitting with Tara and planning the wedding is like sitting with a best friend. She is awesome and I highly recommend the Windsor Ballroom. It’s a must see and must book for all your events. We will definitely be back for sure! Thank you Tara and Windsor Ballroom!

      — Jill, New York, August 2015
    • I had the honor of working with Lindsay, Tara, and Samantha. All three women were wonderful to work with and never failed to make me feel as though I was the only bride they were working with. Samantha was so sweet, yet very professional and business oriented, which is how I am so it gave me a sense of comfort and trust. The day of the wedding I was completely blown away, the ballroom had been transformed into the room I had envisioned. Everything was perfect and I would not have changed a thing. Windsor Ballroom goes over and beyond to ensure everyone is happy and taken care of. If anyone is looking for a venue and is on a budget, this is the place to go. Trust me!

      — Siobhan, June 2015
    • Everything was as wonderful as we had hoped. We thank you again for another great party which is nice to be able to say after having 7-8 different events with you.

      — Lisa + Tom, February 2015
    • Knowing that we would have an amazing team by our side all day on our special day helped make everything even more perfect. We had our ceremony on site as well and most of our guests stayed over. Everything was pulled together so perfectly!! I would recommend the Windsor Ballroom! You will not be disappointed! Best day ever!

      — The O'Rourke's, October 2014
    • We originally chose the Windsor Ballroom because of the price, Tara, the hall and cocktail hour lounge, and because we wanted to have our reception with a hotel. What we got was some of the best service we could have hoped for, and I would and have recommended the Windsor Ballroom to friends and family. I wouldn’t change a thing about the day, the reception, or our selection. I can’t thank them enough.

      — Groom, August 2014
    • Tara and her staff made us feel like the only couple in the world booking their wedding. They took the time to show us around the whole hotel and explained in detail how the ceremony and reception would be set up. They showed us the beautiful gazebo and outdoor garden we could take our pictures in front of, and we did!! They made us feel so comfortable when we made the final decision to book there that we couldn’t wait for the day to come.

      — Anonymous, August 2014
    • We cannot thank you enough for taking such good care of us on our wedding day! You went above and beyond and made our day so special! The ballroom was amazing and everyone kept telling us how great the staff, food, and venue were, and we could not agree more! We will always have amazing memories about our wedding day and will not stop recommending the place! Thank you again!

      — Jeannette + Ross, August 2014
    • You guys did such a terrific job and should be so proud of the wonderful, warm, hard working people that you are! Thank you again for all your kindness and patience. We were so impressed at all the time you took into the little details that made the day complete.

      — Tami, June 2014
    • We had my daughter’s wedding on May 25, 2014. Everything from the staff to the food and décor were wonderful. We also had a breakfast the day after the wedding and that was wonderful as well. The staff was such a pleasure to work with. We had many out of town guest, and I haven’t received any negative comments. Everyone raved about the food, and Tara and the Maitre D’ made everything wonderful along with all the venue staff and hotel staff. It was a wonderful wedding!

      — Denise, Mother of the Bride, May 2014
    • Tara was awesome and was always there for you, she even helped my girls bustle my dress when my buttons went missing. Having my wedding here was the best decision I could have made and I highly recommend Tara and her team.

      — Kristine, April 2014
    • I LOVE THE WINDSOR BALLROOM! It was our first venue we looked at once we got engaged, and it was also the last! Tara and her team are so amazing, helpful, and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The venue is beautiful, and we loved that the reception was in the hotel, making it SO CONVENIENT for our guests.
