Hey everyone!

Just was wondering if anyone knew of any pretty outdoor locations for a wedding(with indoor reception there or reception near by - at least 30 minutes)in Northeastern Ohio? I'm between Akron and Canton and would prefer to travel more north than south. Or if south, something between here and Mount Vernon, OH.

I've checked out so far:
--Occasions Party Center
--Williams on the Lake
--Tudor House

And a few others, but those three were my top choices so far.

Thanks for your help!

Stan Hywet! We had our August wedding ceremony there. It was beautiful.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is beautiful and they have multiple places for both weddings and receptions.

try prestwick country club. the owner told me they've done weddings by the fountain as well as poolside.

also for lists of locations check and

great suggestions so far. I love williams on the lake but their $/pp is far too expensive for our guest count.

good luck!

If you're planning a small wedding (max. 65) we are using the Hilltop Pavilion (Cascade Valley Summit Metroparks) although actually setting chairs and arbor on the hilltop, then going to Papa Joe's Iacomini's just five minutes away.
If you're looking for something larger you might look into Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens... beautiful grounds.
Good luck.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Stan Hywet has been on my list of places to visit. I'll be sure to visit there when I'm home on spring break. :) There will probably be about 150-200 guests, so the hilltop pavillion probably won't work. But I'll keep it in mind if anything changes. :D
