Williams on the Lake is a banquet hall-style wedding venue located in Medina, Ohio. This unique destination has picturesque waterfront views along with lush outdoor gardens and stylishly classic interiors. It is only a 45-minute drive from downtown Cleveland, making it ideal for locals and out-of-towners alike.

Facilities and Capacity

You and your partner can welcome up to 315 of your nearest and dearest here at Williams on the Lake. The venue itself is divided into two venues, the adjacent Lakeside South or Lakeside East event spaces. In the former, host your perfect ceremony experience in the courtyard or beneath a charming wedding gazebo. The inside of Lakeside South features skylights, a majestic chandelier, and a state-of-the-art audio visual system. A built-in bar rounds off a stellar list of amenities that are guaranteed to make any celebration a huge success. Lakeside East is equally as impressive with its fairytale-like Moon gate ceremony site. Here, guests can gather on a stone patio to watch you and yours exchange vows in an unforgettable display of true love. Indoors, your party is greeted with a similarly classic atmosphere with the addition of a cozy stone fireplace built into a section of the hall.

Services Offered

The management team at Williams on the Lake strives to make your entire experience a streamlined dream from start to finish. You and your party have access to a variety of amenities and services such as the convenient dressing suites for private day-of preparations. Seasoned staff lends a helping hand in setting up and clean up, before and after the wedding. Outside vendors of your choice are welcomed here.

Cuisine

Dining here is an experience all of its own with the assistance of the talented in-house catering team. These experts are more than happy to work closely with you to design a customized menu for your event. From buffets to plated-style serving, the choice is yours. Not only can you look forward to an array of delicious foods, but a diverse selection of beverages as well.

    Jen was great to work with. She was very helpful throughout the whole process. I am in the industry myself and she is one of best event planners I have worked with. The venue is stunning and the cost is very reasonable. What's nice is they show you pricing with service charge and tax included. They had amazing staff and service. I would recommend them for not just weddings, but for any type of banquet event.

    Williams on the Lake was EXCEPTIONAL!

    Williams on the Lake was EXCEPTIONAL! From Aly, our wedding coordinator, to Mark and Dave, our Executive Chefs, to Jessica, who kept everyone adequately hydrated (😉), to the rest of the staff, all our needs exceeded expectations. We had a beautiful ceremony out on the courtyard followed by an extraordinary reception in Lakeside South. The food, service and décor were fantastic. We highly recommend Williams on the Lake! Thank you, Aly and Mark!

    100% recommend this family run business. Wonderful to work with! They were very flexible when we had to make changes during Covid-19. The staff was very kind and polite. The food was delicious! Our guests are still talking about that evening.

    Williams on the Lake's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, Alyssa. It was our pleasure working with you and your guests!
    All the best to you and Kevin.
