Lago Custom Events: A Poetic Balance of Nature and Architecture... Between views of the bridge-cradled Flats East Bank, stunning Lake Erie horizon, and modern two-story ceilings, Lago Custom Events’ diverse venue options serve as the perfect backdrop for swoon-worthy nuptials. Lago Custom Events provides four con- temporary spaces at the Aloft Cleveland Downtown and EY Tower that are compli- mented with their own unique features. With virtually a full wall of glass, the Riviera Room’s embellishments extend well out- side the space. By night, the bridge and adjacent buildings illuminate to produce a dramatic display. A city-chic vibe in an intimate setting, the Riviera Room can be tailored for styles ranging from cosmopoli- tan to club. For those with a love for all things open concept, a grand entrance into the EY Tower Lobby does not disappoint. Natural light floods in floor-to-ceiling win- dows and the modern lighting enhances décor to bring your reception vision to cen- ter stage. Without a doubt, the architecture and open floor plan coupled with the room’s 40-foot ceilings encompasses the phrase “unlimited potential.” Keeping with the theme of transforma- tional spaces, the sleek Veranda not only hosts soirees both open-air and enclosed, but also overlooks Lake Erie and the Flats East Bank development. Nestled between two towers, the large concrete footprint and manicured lawn is as dynamic as its design. Though few venues have the fortune of pro- viding guests an expansive view of the lake- BY BREANNE GEORGE front, this is the first of two bright and breezy areas.
