Where Iconic meets classic... The Cleveland Courthouse

A Cleveland Courthouse wedding is like a fairytale wedding brought to life. Cleveland’s Old Courthouse, or its more formal name, The Cuyahoga County Old Courthouse is a venue unlike any other in Northeast Ohio. They literally don’t make them like this any more! First time guests to this historic property are obvious. They walk in and immediately look up and up and up! The grandeur of this building is jaw-dropping. We’ve written about Cleveland’s Old Courthouse before in our Venue Spotlights.  This time we thought we’d take a deeper dive in the hope that you could use this as a resource before hiring.

Wedding receptions at the Cleveland Courthouse can be problematic for some wedding DJ and entertainment companies. Especially for those who have never entertained at this wedding venue. As much as we love the Old Courthouse we have to admit that there are some specific challenges when working here. To name a few, the acoustics and load in. Even so, as a Cleveland wedding DJ and production company, we have successfully completed over 150 wedding receptions at the Cleveland Courthouse.  From Incredible lighting to sound reinforcement the correct way, Cleveland Courthouse weddings are a breeze for us at Selective Sound Entertainment.

The Old Cleveland Courthouse is Lighting Designers Dream...

Watching a lighting designer and their team go to work at the Cuyahoga County Cleveland Courthouse is mesmerizing. As a matter of fact, our team finds it to be more fun decorating here than actual work. Placing the lighting correctly is incredibly important. The goal is to always enhance, never to overwhelm. Thankfully, our designers can create a breathtaking scene with almost any lighting budget.

Acoustics and sound reinforcement are NO PROBLEM for SSE

Worried about the echos? As much as we would like to say don’t worry, you really should. To illustrate, real marble from floor to ceiling, as far as the eye can see, will create some serious challenges. With that said, SSE has trained sound technicians that come second to none. They have worked very hard to ensure that the sound balances perfectly within the Old Courthouse. Don’t just take our word for it, look at our reviews all over the internet that talk about our success. Experience at this venue is a must, we can’t stress that enough. If an entertainment company tells you they have worked at this venue before please make sure they have references to back that claim up. Even more, make sure those references are all positive.

While we don’t want to give away all of our secrets we will say this… speaker placement is key! Those DJ’s that place speakers on the ground without the proper height adjustment are not doing you or your guests any favors.  In fact, placing the speakers on the ground is just lazy. Proper height adjustments are absolutely needed to help with the throw of the audio.

Microphones for ceremonies and proper speaker placement are even more important. Wireless lapel/lavalier hidden microphones with directional heads are a must.   If you have a dedicated and trained sound technician to help throughout the day/evening you will have nothing to worry about.  Selective Sound Entertainment and Events prides itself on its high level of experience in this venue.

Are you thinking about having your wedding reception at the Cleveland Courthouse?

If so, be sure to hire an experienced wedding lighting team that has actually worked in this venue. This is important because there are a few lighting challenges that will need to be met. Power sources and the grandeur of the space are a couple to mention. Also, if you are still looking for your wedding DJ then be sure to hire a seasoned wedding DJ. Experienced Cleveland wedding DJ’s who have been to the Cleveland Courthouse know that the space can be a bit challenging if you don’t have a real technical background.  Those with experience also understand that you need to be knowledgeable of acoustics. Due to the unique acoustics your DJ will need to bring proper speakers. If this happens then your music will be just fine.
