 LaMalfa has built a legacy in Northeast Ohio as a premier venue for one-of-a-kind weddings, from rehearsal dinners to recep- tions and everything in between. “We work directly with brides and their Pinterest boards to create a wedding theme based on their own unique style and personality,” says President of Wingate by Wyndham, Martin LaMalfa. “Brides receive one-on- one consultations with our in-house event consultants who provide guidance and expert advice. This level of attention is what sets us apart from other venues in the region.” Beautiful Ballrooms in an All-Suite Hotel A truly glamorous setting for weddings, LaMalfa offers four breathtaking ballrooms that accommodate up to 1,500 guests for wedding receptions. Each ballroom fea- tures magnificent crystal chandeliers, neu- tral colors and elegant white satin ribbons suspended from the ceiling. With each ballroom combined, there is more than 120 feet of bar space. Weddings... The Wingate by Wyndham Hotel currently attached to the LaMalfa facility is in a middle of a $2.2 million restoration to be completed by the fall of 2021. The hotel is equipped with the largest indoor pool in Lake Coun- ty equipped with water fountains and a full-length seat inside the pool. The most lavish suites in the hotel are over 1000 sq. ft. with full dining rooms and Jacuzzi tubs. No matter a bride’s vision for her special day, LaMalfa’s flexible ballrooms can accommodate a wedding reception and cocktail hour in a variety of layouts. For example, many brides use two ballrooms, one to create a romantic space for the reception and another to create a trendy nightclub-inspired look for cocktail hour and late-night snacks. Indoor Chapel Conveniently located inside LaMalfa is a gorgeous, glass-enclosed chapel, which accommodates up to 350 guests for wed- ding ceremonies. Filled with natural light, this charming space features a wall of win- dows, skylight and dramatic grand stair- case perfect for wedding photography. “Our chapel is a great option for brides who want the feel of an outdoor wedding without having to worry about the unpredictable Northeast Ohio weather,” LaMalfa says. Wedding packages include large floral balls that suspend from the chapel’s cathedral ceiling and beautiful silk flower arrangements. For additional décor, brides have the flexibility to work with LaMalfa’s event planning consultants to transform the space to create their dream wedding. If desired, a professional pianist will play during the ceremony on LaMalfa’s piano.
