Hands down the best wedding venue in Cleveland

I don’t even know where to start, I had the most beautiful wedding on 12/31/22 at the Aviator. Everything exceeded my expectations, from the food, service, and attention to detail, there was not one thing that wasn’t meticulously planned and executed. From the beginning I worked with the owner, Khadar, I chose the Aviator because I didn’t need to do anything, from the linens, Uplighting, centerpieces, indoor pyrotechnics to our wine and champagne towers, he could do it all! There was not one request I had that he wasn’t willing to accommodate, he was a pleasure to work with.
Jen, the operations manager was on maternity leave during most of my planning, I didn’t work with her much in the beginning but when she returned to work she never missed a beat, it was like she never left, she knew exactly what I wanted and had so many amazing suggestions to enhance my guests
Experience at my wedding. In the end (3 days before my wedding) we needed to tweak a few things with the room layout and Khadar, Jen, and the rest of the team were like super hero’s, rearranging everything exactly the way I wanted it and making sure it was perfect!
On the day of my wedding Jen, Khadar, and other team members were amazing, they made sure all the fine details I wanted weren’t overlooked and everything was perfect. They all tried their best to stick to my timeline, make sure everyone was where they were supposed to be, and worked with my vendors to create the most seamless experience a bride could ever ask for! I really can not rave enough about the Aviator and all they have to offer, from beginning to end they made planning my wedding the least stressful as possible, I can not thank Jen, Khadar, and the whole Aviator team enough for making my day absolutely perfect! If you’re looking for an amazing, beautiful, easy to work with and over accommodating wedding venue, stop now and just book the Aviator, there’s no where else like it!

The reception at the Bomb Group made for the best memories I have of my wedding - it was romantic but modern, spacious but intimate, all elegance and yet relaxed. The food was amazing - we got to try everything beforehand and even altered their recipes to our liking (less salt, parsly instead of cilantro, design our own desserts,...). The staff was friendly, hospitable and professional, they still know us by name when we stop by now for dinner or a glass of wine. The patio with fire places and Gazebo was wonderful on a warm summer night, the ceiling drapery matched the chair covers and flowers perfectly. The Bomb Group let us individualize everything - we used their flowers on half of the tables, the other half we had fancier bouquets from our florist. We had 3 rooms, two for the guests with access to the patio and a third one as a lounge with an extra bar, chocolate fountain, sofa group, high tables and dessert arrangements. It is not cheap, but it was soooooo worth every penny!!!!
