    Phenomenal Experience!

    The Emerald Event Center was perfect all around. Our guests commented that the food and cake were both some of the best they've ever had! We had 250 guests and the space was perfect, including the beautiful courtyard. The wait staff and bartenders were friendly and efficient. Shannon was SO helpful during the entire process, she was quick with her responses and helped bring my dream wedding to life!

    Elisa, Thank you!
    Your wedding was so beautiful and your guests were so much fun!
    It was a pleasure planning your special day with you!
    Congratulations again!

    Excellent!

    Emerald Event Center helped make my fairytale wedding a reality. They were flexible with my vision. We were able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour, pictures, and reception all in one place. All of our guest were extremely pleased with the convenience of it. The food was excellent and the service was quick everyone got their food around the same time so not one person was receiving their food after other tables finished. Shannon really helped keep me on track with reminders to schedule time for tastings, payments, and details. She responded super quick with any questions I had at anytime.

    The Emerald Event Center at the Residence Inn by Marriott Cleveland/Avon's reply:

    Taylor,
    We are glad we were able to make your fairytale wedding come true!
    It was a pleasure planning with you. Best wishes to a lifetime of happiness!

    Better Then I Imagined

    The people at E.E.C. were incredibly friendly and helpful. They were also very accommodating, as we had a "Covid" wedding and constantly had to make changes. We requested a Vegetarian only menu. The Chef came up with a unique (& fabulous) menu. Shannon, our coordinator took care of everything on our wedding day. I didn't have to worry about setting up a single decoration. She made it beautiful and exactly how I envisioned. We initially thought we didn't want a "hotel" for our venue. But I am so glad we went this route. Neither the ceremony or reception rooms, had a hotel/conference room feel. And the convenience of having our honeymoon suite 50 yards away, couldn't be beat!

    The Emerald Event Center at the Residence Inn by Marriott Cleveland/Avon's reply:

    Melissa, Thank you for the kind words. We are glad we were able to make your wedding day a dream come true! Congratulations again!!
