Delicious food, elegant atmosphere, great service
The Bertram was the perfect place for our fairtytale wedding because we wanted a classy venue where we could hold all the events of the weekend, have an outdoor ceremony, and throw a killer reception. The Bertram offered all of this, plus a great staff and amazing food. To this day, even four months later, we still get texts and comments about how delicious the food was at our wedding.Sent on 11/18/2018
We absolutely loved working with Victoria, Alex, and the Bertram staff for our wedding. From the time I met Victoria the summer before, I knew I wanted her to help me plan my wedding. Everyone was so kind and genuine ad truly wanted to help make our day all we dreamed of. They made everything so easy and they were so accommodating. We had about 180 people for the ceremony and reception. We held our rehearsal and dinner there the night before and most of the bridal party spent the night on the grounds. We used their hospitality suites for getting ready- we had hair stylists and make-up artists come to us. It was so convenient to have it all in one place, and we loved having the pool for our guests. We also had everyone share a buffet breakfast on Sunday. My husband and I loved using the getaway cottage for our first night as a married couple, and we look forward to staying there again in the future for an anniversary.
I would highly recommend the Bertram for your wedding. The grounds provided beautiful pictures without us having to go offsite. The patio was perfect for our outdoor ceremony, and it offered a great space for guests to converse or get fresh air during the reception. We loved using the pre-function area for our cocktail hour, and it was an elegant, Plan B option if it was rainy and we couldn’t hold the ceremony outside. We especially loved the natural light. We also liked that the bar was outside of the reception room because it gave our guests a lot of space to converse and hang out. The staff was so helpful in planning our day and they allowed us to bring a lot of personal touches and decorations to make the ceremony look and feel like our own.
One of the last things that is important to mention was how the entire hotel staff made my husband and I feel like royalty the whole weekend. We were treated with such great service and everyone working knew we were the bride and groom and knew us by first name. These personal touches really show how Victoria and her team go above and beyond.
Many of our guests gave us compliments on the venue, but all in all, we just keep hearing rave reviews about the food. As a bride, this makes me happy because I wanted my guests to have a delicious meal.

I just had my wedding reception at the bertram inn a couple days ago, and I would highly, highly recommend it to other brides looking for a classy, beautiful venue. Brenda, the on-site coordinator, is amazing. She has been doing this job for 20 plus years, and her knowledge clearly shows. Everything was flawless. They work with you and try to do whatever they can to make the day special go go smoothly. They are so accommodating and attentive. Food was also incredible. The guests all raved about it!Sent on 05/23/2017
The Bertram Inn and Conference Center is one of the most beautiful and accommodating wedding venues in Northeast Ohio. Their wedding staff provides personalized service to brides, and their wedding coordinator goes above and beyond in every way to make sure every aspect of the wedding planning, and the wedding itself, runs smoothly. The Bertram's bridal tastings and their annual bridal event are truly among the best I've seen. The acoustics in every ballroom, atrium and foyer are optimal for string musicians, and sound carries beautifully throughout the bright, open spaces, even without a microphone. I fully endorse this elegant and beautiful wedding venue and its top-notch staff for the perfect wedding or special event. Celestial Strings: Roseann Canfora, Harpist.
After photographing at the Bertram Inn this summer, I can't say enough great things about the venue. The venue is beautiful and the staff does an amazing job with everything from decor to making sure all of the wedding day logistics are taken care of so that everything runs smoothly for the bride. I'd highly recommend this venue if you're in the Northeast Ohio area!
