    We had our ceremony here. Kristy was phenomenal to work with. She was very polite and flexible. She helped us make our ceremony perfect even though we had to have it inside because of the rain. We are very impressed with Kristy and the venue.

    Thanks for the kind words Emily! You and Charles were such a sweet couple to work with. Now if I could just figure out how to put a request in to the weather gods about no rain on the wedding day!

    I was very excited to have my ceremony at the Great Lakes Science Center. We wanted the ceremony outside on the terrace overlooking the Rock Hall and Lake Erie. Thankfully the weather held out and we were able to do the ceremony outside, so it was perfect. Kristy allowed us to make the final decision for location only two hours before the ceremony, which I appreciated because we didn't know if the weather was going to cooperate. One thing that I didn't like about the Great Lakes Science Center was that they created a Pokemon event during the same day and time as our ceremony. The event was planned after we had already paid the venue in full and I found out about the event through Facebook. I would have appreciated it if the Science Center would have sent me an email stating the event details before I had to find out about this very public event through social media. I wasn't happy that they scheduled a Pokemon event during the same time as our ceremony, but overall I thought it was a beautiful venue.
