Lorain ( venue) Is TOPS in my book!

by Loraine Ritchey

You will remember that I had decided to use Lorain venues and businesses for my part of the wedding TA DAH!!! THEY ALL GET A+++++ . I was so thrilled on Friday evening – when it was so hot and uncomfortable to walk into The Rose Cafe at the Beach House, Lakeview Park.

From the beautiful blue of Lake Erie sparkling and shining

through the sparkling shining windows of the Beach House,

the flowers , the greenery, the splashing cool fountain on the outside

reflected in the wonderful flowers by “Off Broadway”
Elegant Beach it was!!!! The photos just do not do justice to the arrangements and the aroma OH MY!

The Ice Vase for the flowers ( about 4 foot high) had to be touched to make sure it was made of Ice and not crystal ( De Lucas )

The tables dressed in the colours of the sky outside white cloud table cloths and chair coverings – Lake Erie Blue chair sashes – and delphinium blue napkins took away the heat and humidity instantly .

and the food OH MY!!!

and the service again OH MY!!!! The staff of Deluca’s and the Metro Parks couldn’t have been more helpful if they had been “family”.

Every little detail was anticipated and taken care of I felt like royalty and we were treated as such .

The Barber Shoppers were delightful and even color co-ordinated their vests for the occasion…..

You want to throw a party come to Lorain!

The Bride and Groom were Happy!
