The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Woodside Event Center at St. Michael's is a premier grand ballroom venue serving the areas of Cuyahoga County and Cleveland, Ohio. Situated in a tranquil yet easily accessible wooded area of Broadview Heights, this formal events hall is suitable for elegant wedding receptions or rehearsal dinners with relatively sizable guest counts.
The Upper Level comprises a spacious, approximately 6,500-square-foot banquet hall, along with a lobby and two bar rooms, one of which is commonly used as a buffet space. It can accommodate up to 400 guests but is versatile enough to be adapted for smaller, more intimate affairs as well. The decor is neutral, lending itself well to some creative personal touches, with an attractive vaulted ceiling, wood beams and polished hardwood flooring that's great for dancing. A recessed alcove at the south side of the hall is suited for the entertainment, head table or food displays.
The Lower Level gymnasium has an area of 8,050 square feet and can easily hold up to 600 guests. Like the Upper Level, the gymnasium has a vaulted ceiling with beams and can be outfitted for a range of unique themes. It also has some additional rooms nearby: a 650-square-foot serving room and an adjacent 700-square-foot meeting room.

Mary Jane will listen to any phone call and will do almost anything you want. She is very accommodating. My husbands father even borrowed a table for a few days from her for his house guests. I couldn't imagine a better venue to have my wedding at. She made everything beautiful. Grade A+ service. Have your wedding there. You wont be disappointed.
Outstanding ServiceReviewed on 8/02/2013 Amanda F
Mary Jane was extremelly helpful in coordinating everything for the wedding. The Center also includes quite a few extras to help dress up the hall. The food was fantastic. Prior to the wedding, we were invited to try the food at an event and the chef sat down with us to explain some of the other dishes offered and make suggestions based on serving style. He also offered to make items that were not included on the list for a small premium. I would recommend this hall to any bride. The only issue we had was with some confusion related to different office personnel, but Mary Jane was able to fix it in a timely manner.
