LaMalfa is a 75,000-square-foot ballroom in the Cleveland, Ohio, area that hosts weddings. Couples can use the indoor chapel and stunning grand lobby in this location for their wedding ceremony. LaMalfa is a 35-minute drive from downtown Cleveland and is located close to Mentor Marsh Nature Center, where couples can have their wedding. For a wedding, the Chapel at LaMalfa can accommodate up to 250 guests. The ceremony is illuminated naturally by a skylight in the ceiling, and the grand staircase gives the area more architectural elegance. The chapel also has a baby grand piano and a bridal changing area for use. Couples may alter one of the four ballrooms at the location to serve as an aisle and altar space for larger ceremonies.
For a wedding reception, these four ballrooms can accommodate up to 1,500 guests. There is a stage and 30-foot bar in each ballroom. These spaces can also be divided, as is common at LaMalfa, so that cocktails can be served on one side and the reception on the other. This location offers all-inclusive packages and event planning services to cater to couples. Whatever the occasion or cultural preferences, this location can accommodate them all. Couples are welcome for Greek, Russian, or Jewish wedding receptions, as well as bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, and other events. The staff of this venue will even assist with the setup and cleanup of weddings so that couples can relax on their special day.
If a couple chooses to use the in-house bar services, this venue provides house beer and house wine. It is possible to prepare American and Italian food to accommodate dietary needs for vegetarians, vegans, koshers, lactose-free, gluten-free, no pork eaters, and vegans. The location got its start in 1963 as a small business called Vine Beverage that made party trays for homes and community centers. In the 1970s, the company expanded into Vine Party Center, and in 1986, a new location was under consideration. The present LaMalfa Party Center was formally inaugurated in 1989.
Once you find your wedding venue, it is easier to imagine your dream wedding dress. Imagine entering the venue arm-in-arm with all your guests’ eyes upon you. Your first dance awaits you. What is your wedding gown style, A-line, boho, ballgown, mermaid, or other silhouettes?
With your venue date set, a few quick yet fun decisions are needed to coordinate the wedding date. Be sure to schedule your ceremony location soon, too. Looking for alternative wedding ceremony locations? Perhaps, a local park or beach is the spot to exchange your vows and capture memories. The journey ahead is bound to fill with excitement and joy. Wedding photographers can book a year in advance of your wedding date, so be sure to hire a wedding photographer in short order that meets your vision and personality. And, of course, let’s remember your out-of-town wedding guests. Let them know that you researched their accommodation options, whether a hotel or a private rental house, as the guests, will appreciate this.
