Recently, Driftwood catering overtook Executive Caterers at Landerhaven. Driftwood has a bold and amazing plan in place to completely remodel the entire venue. These plans should be complete sometime in 2021, giving weddings at Landerhaven an even more exciting appeal.

Sweet-smelling fragrances and vibrant gardens make this setting, one of a kind.

Bringing your family and friends to your Cleveland Botanical Garden wedding will leave them in awe.  Beautiful natural settings in an unforgettable environment is the perfect backdrop for any wedding.  Plan the wedding of your dreams right in the middle of one of Cleveland, Ohio’s most prominent gardens.

Ceremonies at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens can happen throughout the day. The receptions however, are held at night. Not only does this give you the luxury of having the entire venue and grounds to yourself but it also lets you dance under the stars. There are about 5-6 different backdrops and areas where you can have your ceremony. The Sunken garden and Japanese garden are the most common.   Make sure you secure ceremony sound as the street up above does give off some road noise and you don’t want any of your guests missing what’s said at the ceremony.

Receptions can take place outdoors or indoors.  Clark hall which has amazing sunset views or the Western Reserve Society Herb garden.  Indoor or outdoor, The Botanical Gardens of Cleveland has the perfect setting. Some clients choose to set up a framed tent over the outdoor terrace which can be lit up for an intimate but weather ready incase it rains. Outdoor receptions in that space are also done without any tents and the Botanical Gardens always keeps one of the halls open incase of rain.

The possibilities are endless......

When it comes to Cleveland Botanical Garden weddings, the possibilities are endless…

In addition to world class entertainment from a Cleveland wedding DJ company, some of the things we have done at the gardens is listed below:

Intimate gardens make the perfect backdrop for your ideal wedding

ThornCreek Winery , in our opinion, is one of the most elegant and intimate outdoor wedding venues in Northeast Ohio. Located in beautiful Aurora, Ohio, this winery has gorgeous gardens and will surely keep your guests talking for years to come. ThornCreek Winery is a fantastic choice not only because they offer multiple gardens to pick from but they are also unique from other outdoor options.  One example of this is how the designers have added distressed white wood doors where the wedding party would make their entrance to the ceremony.

Cocktail & Reception at ThornCreek Winery

The upper garden area, which is directly attached to the winery, is typically used for cocktail hour. With the scenic views of ThornCreek Winery, the cocktail hour can be spread out with guests having an intimate setting no matter where they were.

Receptions at ThornCreek Winery are usually held in the garden tent area(s), depending on how many guests. The Aging Cellar, as well as the indoor tasting room, are more intimate spaces for smaller weddings and receptions. These two spaces offer an intimate setting and classy décor. Without a doubt, you just can’t go wrong with any space at this venue.

Award winning culinary gardens make for the most intimate weddings

ThornCreek Winery & Gardens is by far one of the best kept secrets in Northeast Ohio.   As a Cleveland, Ohio wedding DJ company, we have been doing events in this space for almost 15 years.  Every year the owners are always pushing the limits to enhance the venue and gardens.   We always look forward to working here at the winery. Not only is the space one of our favorites but so are the staff.

Modern elegance, Superb service and Attention to detail at La Vera Party Center

La-Vera Party Center, was founded in 1952 by Larry and Vera Gaudio and is still family owned to this day.

To this day, they still use only the finest ingredients in preparation of their amazing wedding menu.

La-Vera Party center is a spacious and newly remodeled two-room wedding reception venue. Each room has the capability to be customized to the unique needs of each couple and their guests. The venue, as a whole, has the capacity to accommodate events ranging from 100-720 guests. We would describe La Vera as a classic spin on tasteful elegance.  To get an even better idea, you should check out our spotlight feature that we did a few years back.

What’s fantastic about LaVera Party Center is that it seems as though they make some type of update every year. This family run establishment isn’t dull or stuck in the past whatsoever. Instead, they are always looking to make things better for their clients. This type of thinking is something we, at Selective Sound Entertainment, can truly relate too.
