I have nothing but absolutely wonderful things to say about the Bertram. I worked with Melissa and she was beyond wonderful. She was friendly, helpful, calming, and funny!

I was actually trying to select a venue that was closer to the city and would have been a bit more of a challenge due to different locations, parking, timing, etc. I was not going for a wedding hall kind of atmosphere but I was so glad I did! Not only is the Bertram beautiful, and it's awesome to have hotel rooms available onsite, but it was so easy! Planning a wedding is hard enough and I was in transition to a brand new job, and dealing with a lot of stress, and the Bertram made everything as simple as can be and completely customizable.

You could get your cake baked on-site so you didn't have to worry about a baker, and every vendor in Cleveland has worked there at one point or another so it was easy to get everyone to mesh into one seamless event. My day was absolutely beautiful and not a single thing went wrong. Melissa was not only my coordinator during the process, but my friend. I felt like I could e-mail her about anything and she totally understood my issues with a picky groom. My cake was my own design and it came out stunning, they let me see everything before the big moment, and they even threw in some cute extras just to make everything perfect.

Everyone had a great time, the food was out of this world good, and I just have nothing but great things to say. Thank you sooooo much Melissa and the Bertram!

Our reception was held at the Bertram Inn's main room, the McKinley Ballroom, and was done fantastically. An event was held prior to our reception, ending at 3pm, and the team at the Bertram was able to change the room completely over by 5pm when our guests arrived for cocktail hour. Hors d'ouvres and cocktails were served, as well as a cheese table. Guests were promptly seated at 6pm, where our tables were set up perfectly with our centerpieces, guest favors, and table numbers as requested. Dinner service was a formal buffet of beef tenderloin, vegetable ravioli, and roasted sea bass, sides of almond green beans and parmesan crusted red potatoes. Guests made sure to tell us how flavorful and fantastic the food was all night. Waitstaff was attentive, and very friendly, garnering even more praise. Overall, The Bertram met all of our requirements and exceeded our expectations with little difficulty, going so far as to offer to contact our vendors for us to finalize details. We will fully recommend them for a fantastic and memorable wedding day!

I highly recommend Julianne and the food was superb!!! Lighting and ceiling drapes by Chris at the Bertram made the room look magical!! Thank you Julianne!!

We were recently married at the Bertram Inn and were assisted by Julianne Pittman with our planning. The quality of the food, cake, facility, linens, and service during the reception was outstanding. Many guests commented on the quality of the food and the bar. We felt that the money we spent was well worth what we received. We had high expectations of the facility and they matched and exceeded them. Every tiny detail was either taken care of by them or made aware of to us so that we could handle it. Our guests all had very positive experiences staying at the hotel, eating at the restaurant (brunch day after wedding) and with the other facilities.

Julianne Pittman assisted us throughout the enormous process of planning a reception for roughly 200 people. She went out of her way to give us honest, timely, and helpful feedback. She really helped make the process simple with the way she handled our meetings and conversations. Multiple times we changed out mind, some within the last few weeks, and she took care of it without issue. For a facility to provide someone like her to help a couple is a major, major plus. She really did a fantastic job, kept us sane, and made things easy. She gets our highest recommendation without hesitation.

The Bertram made our wedding absolutely perfect!! First of all, the wedding planner (Julianne) was extremely professional and assisted with every step of the process. She assisted with every big and small request from myself as well as my parents. She also made sure we had appetizers at the head table, and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the night. Secondly, the food was phenomenal!!! We are still receiving compliments from our guests regarding the food. Lastly, they were responsive towards the elderly guests (with coffee/ cake) and towards our vegetarian guests (with preparing special meals for them). The wedding was amazing thanks to the Bertram Inn and Julianne!!
