We are doing 100th Bomb Group by the airport for a few reasons.

1 – They help you create a package at your price point

2 – a lot is included in packages as well as free valet parking where downtown was kind of pricey

3 – the Hilton Garden Inn runs a shuttle 24/7 to the Bomb Group and you set up a wedding day schedule

4 – the food is amazing!

Hi Meg!

Where do you want your venue to be located? Are you trying to stick to locations downtown, or are you willing to move out into the suburbs? What kind of venue are you looking for?

We didn’t end up going with Taste of Excellence (too pricey for us!), but they were so nice and professional and accomodating during our meetings with them that I would recommend them anyway. They have many more venues other than Josaphats– I would ask them for a list. Here are the few I know of:

The Old Courthouse: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=535

Natural History Museum: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=532

Earnfelt Event Center: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=586

Keller Event Center: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=599

Springvale Ballroom in North Olmstead is pretty– we didn’t end up going with it because we didn’t like the layout of the tables inside (and we couldn’t change them), but it is very pretty: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=513

Michaud’s in Strongsville is super, super affordable, and they have a number of rooms to choose from. We didn’t end up going with them because I felt their rooms looked a little dated, but they might be just what you want: http://www.michauds.net/index.cfm

I have known a few people who had weddings at Wagner’s Country Inn in Westlake, and they have all been satisfied: http://www.wagnerscountryinn.com/

Hope that helps! Congratulations!

I have been to Windows, Landerhaven and Pine Ridge. All do a nice job, although Landerhaven is a little “hall”-ish and is pricey.  I loved Josaphats but it was just too expensive with all the add-ons.  Someone told me the Croation hall in Eastlake was recently remodeled.  Again, it’s a “hall” but reasonably priced.  Hillbrook Club and Glidden House are good options as well.  There is also a new place, Park Lane Villa in University Circle.  Don’t know anything about it, but it looks beautiful.  My ceremony and reception are at Barrington Golf Club.  Tons of trouble and add-on fees.  I don’t recommend that venue!

Hi Meg!

I saw a lot of reception halls in the Cleveland area during my search, but I am curious: what kind of venue are you looking for? Do you need it to be downtown, or are you willing to look in the suburbs? Do you want a traditional hall, or something more unusual?

The places I looked are mostly in the suburbs:

-We had an initial meeting with A Taste of Excellence, and we didn’t end up going with them because (1) they were a little too pricey for us, and (2) most of their venues are blank slates and we would have had to rent a lot of stuff to turn them into a reception. But that said, the staff there was so nice and accomodating that, if you can afford them, I would recommend them anyway. They cater many more venues besides Josaphats. The few I know of off hand:

The Old Courthouse: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=535

Keller Event Center: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=599

Earnfelt Event Center: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=586

Museum of Natural History: http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=532

-We also looked at Springvale Ballroom in North Olmstead. It is very pretty and reasonably priced– we didn’t end up going with it because we didn’t like the layout of the tables, and you are not allowed to change them. But it might be what you want! http://www.weddingsincleveland.com/advertiser_details.asp?ai=513

-We also looked at Michaud’s in Strongsville. They are super affordable and have a number of rooms you can choose from. I worried about party-crashers and hearing other receptions going on at the same time, but my day-of coordinator has done a number of weddings there and says it hasn’t been a problem. We didn’t end up going with them because I felt their rooms were a little dated, but you might like them: http://www.michauds.net/index.cfm

-I have never been here myself, but I know a few people who have had their reception at Wagner’s Country Inn in Strongsville and been very satisfied: http://www.wagnerscountryinn.com/

-As for me, I ended up choosing the Fountain Bleau in Avon Lake. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it is right across the street from a Ford factory– but I finally decided that that didn’t matter, since we are going to be inside all night anyway: http://www.clevelandcatering.com/fountain-bleau-hall.html

Hope that helps!
