Hidden gem of venues in Cleveland
If you are imagining a relaxed, rustic-industrial style for your wedding, Lake Affect Studios is the place for you! This venue is the most beautiful blank canvas that you could imagine. Our goal was to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue and Lake Affect Studios had exactly that. The industrial warehouse space had more than enough room to support our ceremony including a large bridal party and 150 guests. We utilized their main space for our reception, that included a built-in bar, mood lighting, and a stage which helped to create the romantic and chill atmosphere that we were going for. The space had the ability to feel intimate without being claustrophobic. Our guests had ample room to move about, either hanging at the bar, dancing on the dance floor, or hanging in the back playing games. The private bridal suite made it easy to take a step away or have a celebratory moment with our bridal party. The venue staff did not go unnoticed and went above and beyond to help make our wedding day a success. Finally, a big shout out to Stephanie who worked with us to make sure we had a layout that would work for their venue and a timeframe that fit the night. She supported us in our bar decisions and even allowed us to take pictures on the roof. She was an excellent resource and supporter for our non-traditional wedding.Sent on 04/27/2020

Great reception venue!
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Lake Affect Studios. It was a small event with less than 80 people but the space felt filled and looked beautiful. Stefanie, the venue coordinator, was a wonder to work with. She handled communication with the vendors and even gave us advice during set up. I highly recommend LAS for a wedding reception or other party!Sent on 05/30/2019

I cannot speak highly enough of Lake Affect Studios. The space had everything we were looking for in terms of location and atmosphere, and the service was unrivaled. Our wedding coordinators (Stefanie and Amanda) were amazing and went above and beyond for my husband and I. They anticipated our needs and made us feel like we were always a priority. I will absolutely use this venue for future events!Sent on 12/11/2019
