    Very Pleased

    We were very pleased with everyone at the Seelbach. The wedding was beautiful and we could not have asked the staff to be any nicer and easy to work with.

    The best experience we will never forget

    I was a covid bride. 8 days out from our postponed wedding date (at a different venue in Indiana) we were notified that our guest list could only be 25 people due to state regulations. I cannot recommend Heather enough to any of my fellow brides. She and my mother in law threw together a covid friendly celebration for our friends who couldn’t be present the day of the ceremony the night before. The oak room was absolutely STUNNING! We had the Fitz suite and all of our friends & family stayed with us on the 8th floor. It honestly felt like we were celebrities! Everyone was so welcoming and understanding of all the things we had been through trying to get married in 2020. The entire staff made our day so special and we will forever be grateful for their hard work and flexibility.

    Top Notch Venue

    We loved working with Heather Roney and the Seelbach. Such a professional team, always available for questions, and willing to to make sure your needs/requests are met. Our wedding went through a lot of changes with COVID protocols up until a few days out, and the Seelbach team made sure to make it as beautiful, fun, and smooth as possible. We had such a wonderful time and are so grateful.

Heather Roney
Sales Manager

I have been apart of the Seelbach team for almost 9 years, and during that time I have booked and serviced over 600 events.

Before joining the Seelbach team, I lived in New Jersey and worked for the United States Golf Association. After 5 years in New Jeresy, I moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where I met my Husband, Chef Patrick Roney. We teamed up to run the Interior Operations on a Private Charter Yacht. Just like on Bravo's hit TV Show "Below Deck". After many years at sea we moved to Louisville and I accepted the position as Sales Manager at the Seelbach Hilton.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my Husband, Daughter, Dog and occasionally drinking a glass of wine or playing a round of golf.
