    Beautiful outdoor ceremony, fun indoor reception

    We recently had a wonderful experience at Encore in Wadsworth when our son & daughter-in-law married here. The staff was responsive and attentive to details including cleaning the chairs before the outdoor ceremony and delivering champagne to the new couple after outdoor photos. The buffet of salmon, chicken, and salads was delicious. The DJ expertly kept the dance floor full. We especially appreciated the professional & helpfulness that Matt showed to our celebration by going above & beyond to make certain that everything went smoothly. We would highly recommend Encore.

    Absolutely Amazing

    I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. So many people have told me this was one of the best weddings they have been to! The venue is GORGEOUS, the food was top notch, and the staff was very attentive. I worked with Kaitlyn and Sarah day of and she was amazing. So hopefully and so kind! Cleanup after was a breeze since the staff packed most of my stuff up for me! I highly recommend Encore for anyone looking to plan their wedding. The only issues we came across were due to Covid, which is no fault of the venue at all. Such a perfect day. Thank you so much!
