Favorite Wedding Venues in Meadville, Conneaut Lake, & Erie March 20, 2015

Hello Production’s newest event planner, Natasha, is handling wedding and events in the Meadville/Erie area and we asked her to clue us in on some of her favorite wedding venues.


If you’re looking for a wedding venue in the Meadville, Conneaut Lake, and Erie, PA, areas, there are quite a few to choose from! Here are some of my personal favorites.


Hotel Conneaut is a venue for any event. It is charming with a touch of history as it is located in the historical Conneaut Lake Park in Conneaut Lake, PA! There is a spacious ballroom and a beautiful wrap-around porch which makes for amazing photographs. There are two ballrooms for your events at this venue, both which are newly remodeled but still have the unique old world architecture. In addition to the indoor ballrooms, there is a large lawn which overlooks the beautiful Conneaut Lake. There is also a pier that extends out over the lake which makes for an amazing ceremony site!


If you are considering having an event in the Meadville area, The Meadville Country Club could potentially be the perfect choice for you for any type of event. This venue is a wonderful place to hold a special ceremony overlooking The Country Club’s golf course. Your cocktail hour can easily be followed by continuing outside to a tented reception on the lawn or indoors in their ballroom! The staff is very friendly and easy to work with. The Executive Chef, Shaun Alcorn, will cater delicious culinary cuisine and a premier dining experience that all of your guests will be talking about for weeks!


Heading farther North to Erie, there are a wider variety of venues. One of my absolute favorites is the Erie Bayfront Sheraton Hotel. Here you can have your reverie event with a breathtaking view in the Harlequin Ballroom. This ballroom is elegant with its navy blue and silver color scheme that flows with the nautical feel of the Bayfront Sheraton décor. Large glass windows scale on all sides giving natural light to the ballroom and a view of the city with docked sailboats to be admired. This upscale venue is a dream for any event or wedding! Your guests can enjoy their evening and follow up with a comfortable stay here where overnight accommodations are available.

If you interested in more of an intimate event with a serene view, charm of rustic ambiance, and lovely grounds then Quincy Wine Cellars could possibly be the venue for you. Located in Ripley, New York, this venue is a premier winery and banquet facility. The lofted barn venue is a blank canvas that can be transformed to your perfect event! There is a covered deck that extends from the main space which has spectacular
views of the Vineyards.

Choosing a venue is a difficult decision for any event. Finding your perfect venue is like finding “the dress” – when you know, you know and it is meant to be!

Use WeddingDresses.com To Find The Perfect Wedding Dress March 3, 2015

If you’re looking for a new car, there are tons of websites to help you in your search. You can narrow down your selections by year, color, price, features, etc. – so convenient! The creators at WeddingDresses.com realized there was a need for this type of search for wedding dresses as well, one that includes all types of designers and styles.


Created in 2014 by a group of wedding-lovers, WeddingDresses.com is a way to search and filter thousands of dresses by options such as silhouette, color, neckline, train size, and sleeves. The search includes over 140 designers.


Keep in mind, your local bridal store may not carry every designer and dress you find on the site, but it is a great way to start your search! Take any pictures you like to your dress consultation because your bridal shop may be able to help you find the exact or a comparable dress.


We think this is a great resource for new brides to start their wedding dress search so we played around with the filters and picked some of our favorite wedding dress trends. Remember the less filter options you use, the more dresses the search will return.
