Vendor Spotlight – The Westin Cleveland
Welcome to the first installment of a series of blog posts featuring wedding venues! Over the next few months, check back here as we tour Cleveland’s best spaces to hold your next event. This week, Melanie and Monica from the Westin Cleveland were kind enough to spend some time with me to tell me all about the Westin Cleveland. Certainly the perfect, unique and locally-minded space for your wedding reception.
The Westin strives to enhance each guest’s life with their Six Pillars of Well-being. Consequently the wedding experience is no exception.
Urban Farmer is the full-service restaurant adjacent to The Westin. It strives to honor CLE through building relationships with local farms, ranches and fisheries. Crafted at Westin is a mixology program that uses fresh, preferably local artisanal ingredients for drinks exclusive to Westin. The chefs have created menus that not only source sustainable and organic foods farm to table, but emphasize nutrition and style. Above all, the culinary team can always work with a couple to customize packages. They are open to creating something that meets and exceeds their expectations. And when the reception is over, your guests can still eat well with in room dining available around the clock.
Ensuring that you and your guests have a relaxing stay, each guestroom includes an award-winning Heavenly Bed and Sleep Well Lavender Balm.
484 well-appointed guest rooms are available at the Westin Cleveland. Half with an incredible lake view, and the other half with a breath-taking view of the Cleveland skyline. Furthermore, the newly-weds receive a suite upgrade with each wedding package.
Located on St. Clair Avenue, the Westin Cleveland is within walking distance to several Cleveland destinations. Most noteworthy: East 4th St, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Progressive Field, the House of Blues, Quicken Loans Arena and many other ways to enjoy Cleveland to the fullest. Also provided is a late checkout on Sundays at no extra charge, along with extended weekend breakfast hours.
The RunWESTIN program is a concierge guided run of Cleveland that can fit into your guest’s schedule. And if they couldn’t fit their running shoes into their suitcase, no problem! The Westin also offers Gear Lending, a partnership with New Balance, which gives guests access to workout clothes and shoes.
To enhance your guests’ stay overall, the Westin Cleveland incorporates ways to enjoy their environment during your wedding weekend. Featured are thousands of local artists throughout the hotel.

What’s happening in Cleveland, lately?
Sooooo you know what takes up the majority of your photo and barely gets any love? Your backdrop! Everyone loves props and a good pose, but you can’t forget to consider backdrops in the overall look of not only your photos, but how it will look in your event space. For example, if you’re hosting a garden party wouldn’t a solid black backdrop look out of place? How about a lovely watercolor floral wreath instead?
Enter… (drumroll please….. no really, drumroll……)
Six new pretty backdrops available now from our Cleveland office!
These are just quick iPhone snaps as soon as we received them, so you’ll have to stay tuned for snazzier pictures of them in action, but we were so excited we had to share them with you ASAP.
Can you imagine the pretty themes and spaces you can bring these into?!
Watercolor Winter Backdrop
White Weathered Wood Backdrop
Watercolor Floral Wreath Backdrop

We at Clear Choice Photo Booth love discovering new ways to highlight our services and make sure that you have the best experience possible! We have put together some ideas to make sure that your photo booth rental offers the best for your guests. These ideas will work for any rental, whether it is a trade show in Tucson, a birthday party in Pittsburgh, or a wedding in Atlanta!
1. Choose the prints per person option
Here at Clear Choice Photo Booth we have several packages for brides to choose from for their big day, in hopes that we can accommodate people with various price ranges. For weddings, our deluxe pacakge is our most popular. Not only does it supply a guest book for the bride and groom to take home, but it will print a photo strip for every single person in the photo booth. So if ten people go into the photo booth, eleven strips will be printed out (one for each person, and one for the guest book).
2. Offer “tickets” to the photo booth

Another option is to offer tickets to your photo booth. Guests will feel they are given a great opportunity to use the photo booth. This would be especially beneficial if you have a large amount of wedding guests, as you could control the number of times each person enters the booth.
3. Use frames as a seating chart

If you would like to supply your guests with frames, you could also use the inserts as a seating chart. Each insert could contain the guest name and the table number, as well as an invitation to use the photo booth (as mentioned above). This is a great idea if you are looking to save money and “hit two birds with one stone” using your photo booth frames.
4. Use frames at each place settings

Many brides choose to supply their guests with frames to hold their photo strips. But what do you put in the frame before they receive their photos? A short thank you and an invitation to have fun at the booth. Not only does this let everyone know that there is a photo booth, but it allows the guests to go home with a reminder, in other words, a wedding favor.
5. Encourage fun at the booth

Hang signs, give directions, do everything you can to encourage your guests to have fun at the photo booth! The most important thing is that your guests walk away with a smile on their face, a photo in their hand, and a memory at they will cherish forever!
If you are searching for a professional and fun photo booth rental that you would love to use for your wedding favor, you have found your match! Not only do we offer frames and inserts for this very reason, but we have several packages built for brides. We invite you to contact your local office to speak with us directly.
