Hey all! My fiance and I are looking for a unique place to have our wedding next summer in the Cleveland area. I want a fairytale theme so something like a winery or a castle. The ceremony is going to be at the Botanical gardens so this would just be for the reception. Any suggestions??

This is a really unique idea. If I still lived in Cleveland and had a larger budget, I would do this. Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad offers charter trips. You can have a buffet dinner, or appetizers with a full bar or wine tastings. One of their partner sites is the Akron Zoo, which offers three venues for wedding receptions. I would love to charter a train for the cocktail hour and have the reception at the zoo, and take the train back. It’s not as bad cost-wise as I thought. About $3,500 for the CVSR Executive Charter (3 cars-180 people) and $2,300 for the Akron Zoo (4 hours). The costs are just for the rentals, check with them about catering, decor and the like.
Here’s links to both…
