Hi all 🙂
I am getting married late next year in NE Ohio. My Fiance is from OH, I am not (New Zealand), and am currently plannign from Japan. I have never been to Ohio, but will be visiting for a couple of weeks over christmas and hope to look at venues and find a dress during that time.
I have been trying to research some venues, but having difficulty, as it is an almost entirely web based search. Due to the fact I am from NZ, and he spent the last few years living in Japan, we expect only about 25-40 people to come, so a giant ballroom wouldn’t work. What venues do you ladies recommend? Anywhere from Canton to Cleveland, and on the more affordable side (immigration is expensive!)

Congrats on your engagement! I’m also planning a wedding in NE Ohio, but had to avoid small places seeing that we both have huge families. Here are some ideas:
Old Stone B&B (you can rent the whole house): http://www.oldstonebandb.com/index.asp
Inn At Brandywine Falls: http://www.innatbrandywinefalls.com/meetings.htm
Look About Lodge at Chagrin Falls Reservation: http://www.clemetparks.com/pdf/LAL_brochure.pdf
Debonne Vineyard (or any of the vineyards near Madison): http://www.debonne.com/party-rentals
The Nicholson House in Lakewood: http://lakewoodhistory.org/nichol.htm
I hope these help! They are a less ‘traditional’ venues…

This is where we had ours: http://www.windsorhallinc.com/
The food was awesome and very reasonable: $23 per person which included 2 meats, 1 starch, 1 vegetable, full salad bar and 1 10 gallon keg of beer; $1 per person for china and $1 per person for linens.

Great Lakes Brewery is amazing! We’re having our reception at the 100th Bomb Group and they’re a little pricey, but upfront about everything.
