    Great customer service

    We did not use Weddings by Wedgewood in Wadsworth. We were looking for a more rustic venue. However, I wanted to write an excellent review because I was impressed with their service!

    Ericka met with us and she offered treats and beverages. It was a nice surprise! She was very enthusiastic and answered all of my questions. We wanted to add a couple hours to the package and she gave us 1 hour free! We gave our budget and she wanted to make sure what we wanted would fit in the budget. That was very thoughtful of her!!

    The indoor reception spaces were very open and the dance floor was huge! It's hard to find a nice sized dance floor. The rooms were very open and spacious for a smaller or larger wedding group. The gazebo and waterfall outside was a really pretty too!

    It was very tough to say no and it was close between the two venues. Even though we didn't use them, my co-worker says they are excellent to work with and my first impression was above and beyond. Ericka had the best customer service I've seen among any wedding coordinators I met with. She genuinely seemed like she wanted to help and make your wedding perfect. :-)

    Amazing venue!

    I honestly can't say enough good things about this venue. It can be super overwhelming to look at venues, especially when looking at the cost. Wedgewood tries to make everything easier by having packages that you can customize to make it right for your wedding. The place is on a golf course so there are a lot of places for pretty photos as well. From the first meeting, someone at Wedgewood was always available to answer any questions and were so incredibly accommodating. I must have emailed them a million times and they were always there and happy to respond. I worked with Ericka a lot and she was so sweet and handled everything so the day went so smooth. I kept waiting for something to happen since most weddings have at least one disaster, but absolutely everything went perfectly! A lot fo people said very good things about the food as well which was important to us. I would recommend this venue a hundred times over to anyone looking. We were so happy with our decision to book Wedgewood!
