what makes our Founders Ballroom such a distinctive space.”
Accommodating up to 500 guests, the Founders Ballroom was recently renovated with a modern and neutral palette, which enhances a couple’s wedding colors and design elements. “The contemporary design and subtle blend of colors create the perfect foundation to transform the space

into any style imaginable,” Campbell says. “Lighting, centerpieces and linens simply ‘pop’ amid the neutral backdrop.”
Regarded for its delicious dishes and high level of service, the culinary team’s international experience allows them to create any kind of cuisine imaginable. Popular entrees include porcini-dusted beef tenderloin with port wine sauce on stilton mashed potatoes; sautéed salmon with red wine sauce served on rich roquefort risotto; or grilled sonoma chicken breast with pesto gnocchi and colorful piperade vegetables served with light horseradish au jus. Dietary restrictions, such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free, are available for guests who require this option. The reception dinner concludes with a custom wedding cake expertly designed for the couple.
Wedding packages include an open bar, butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, three-course dinner, a champagne toast, valet parking and a honeymoon suite for the couple, among other offerings. During the wedding, the couple, as well as their parents, are assigned a personal butler who brings them hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and anything else they may need. “The responsibility of the personal butler is to make sure the wedding couple is being catered to throughout the wedding so they can focus on their guests,” Campbell says. “It’s the unique personal touches and little extras that set the Inter- Continental apart from other venues.”
Sensitive to the LGBT community in Northeast Ohio, the InterContinental Cleveland’s staff is trained on the various nuances of same-sex marriage ceremonies and receptions.
“As a hotel, we are dedicated to education and awareness on how to serve a more inclusive wedding population,” Campbell says. “In addition, we reach out to our ven- dors to ensure they are supportive. This is a valuable extra step to ensure we have aligned ourselves with vendors who are pre- pared and eager to serve same-sex couples.”
Weddings held at the InterContinental Cleveland are completely adaptable to a couple’s imagination. In fact, a personal wedding specialist listens to the couple’s ideas and works with them throughout the entire process to bring their dream to life. “I really like to get to know the wedding couple and their preferences to personalize the wedding package accordingly,” Vanucci says. “They have a vision for their special day, and it’s my job to make that vision come to life.”
