Modern meets rustic charm at the Belarusan Event Center, a full-service catering and event venue located on 16 acres in Strongsville. Renowned for its exceptional culinary cuisine, every wedding at Belarusan features a deli- cious, artisan meal made with only the freshest seasonal ingredients.
“Every wedding event is a fine-dining, top- quality culinary experience,” says Chef Richard Cicic, who manages the Belarusan Event Center. “Our talented chefs work one-on-one with the bride and groom to create an amazing culinary experience they will never forget.”
A Perfect Canvas
The newly renovated Belarusan Event Cen- ter features an open and airy grand ballroom, rustic gray wood floors, modern lighting and cutting-edge technology. Accommodating up to 300 guests, the grand ballroom’s sophisti- cated design – complete with neutral colors and modern finishes – is the perfect canvas for a bride to create her dream wedding.
“Belarusan Event Center is surrounded by scenic wooded areas, so we wanted to continue that rustic theme in the design of
personal style or wedding theme, we can bring her vision to life with an extraordinary ceremony and reception inspired by her unique love story.”
An adjacent room, separated from the ballroom by country chic barn doors, is ideal for cocktail hour, ceremonies and dinner buffet setup.
Technology at Every Turn
Lighting design creates the ambiance at your wedding, but it can be a costly expense. The Belarusan Event Center offers state-of- the-art lighting technology to illuminate your wedding with breathtaking mood lighting.
A one-of-a-kind design element, the mag- nificent color-changing walls and LED lighting technology have over one million color options. “We can completely customize the ballroom to a bride’s wedding colors using our unique LED lighting technology,” Cicic says.
In addition to lighting technology, Belarusan includes everything for your audio-visual needs, including five 120-inch high-definition overhead projectors to play videos and photo slideshows. The venue also features a 360-degree video camera that provides brides with a unique video memory of their special day.
Artistic Expression with Food
Renowned for its creative culinary experi- ence, Madd Chef’s Catering, Belarusan’s exclu- sive caterer, provides unforgettable cuisine your guests will be talking about for years to come. Their artistic chefs create delicious cus- tomized menus for every single event based on the highest-quality seasonal ingredients – no two weddings are alike!
“We use local farmers and suppliers for most of our menus,” Cicic says. “We cook with only the freshest seasonal ingredients. New ideas are key to my chefs being ahead of everyone else. We don’t want to keep the status quo – we strive to set the culinary trends for others to follow.”
Whether guests prefer vegetarian, vegan or ethnic cuisine, Madd Chef’s Catering will create a magnificent menu based on the couple’s personal tastes. Every meal is truly
at Belarusan Event Center. In addition to the main course, every wedding includes com- plementary hors d’oeuvres served during cocktail hour.
The Great Outdoors
Belarusan also has a gorgeous enclosed outdoor space with soft seating, a babbling brook and rustic chic design elements. “Brides will have the flexibility to set up the outdoor space in any way they want, from long tables to nightclub-style seating,” Cicic says. “The fully enclosed outdoor space will be very private.”
Designed for guests to mingle throughout the wedding, the outdoor space will also accommodate ceremonies and receptions up to 300 guests. With a pretty backdrop of raised flower and plant beds, it will also be a popular spot for wedding photography.
To ensure guests mingling outside do not miss any important moments of the wed- ding, the outdoor space will be equipped with the latest video technology. “We can play videos, photo slideshows as well as live video of what’s happening inside the ballroom,” Cicic explains.
Event Planning Made Easy
To simplify the event-planning process, Belarusan Event Center’s team of experienced event planners will work with a bride every step of the way to bring her fairytale wedding to life. Unlike most venues that simply provide the rented space, Belarusan event planners provide comprehensive planning services, from décor to entertainment, wedding pho- tography to the wedding cake and everything in between.
According to Cicic, every wedding includes linen tablecloths, linen chair covers as well as fresh floral arrangements on every table and throughout the venue. The bride also has the ability to custom-design the grand ballroom with multi-level staging to fit bridal parties of any size.
When a bride chooses our venue, our goal is to provide her with everything she needs to create the wedding of her dreams.” §
