We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Portage Country Club, and it could not have been more WONDERFUL!!
My better half is a wedding planner, so our own wedding was incredibly selective and took a lot of planning. For our venue we assembled a list of our top 92 locations (NINETY TWO!) and whittled it down from there. Portage Country Club was our NUMBER ONE! After working through our list we figured out that we wanted a place with a reasonable price (which crossed off about a half dozen to dozen otherwise amazing establishments) and a ton of CHARACTER (which crossed off a number of hotels and other venues). We visited our top 12 places in one day, and Portage was the fifth we got to. It instantly became the bar for the rest of the day, and no one else came close.
We had our ceremony out back on the patio in September overlooking the golf course, and it was amazing. But you don't have to take our word for it; of every aspect of our wedding, the one that received the most compliments was how beautiful our ceremony was. #2 was the quality of the food, superbly prepared by Portage!! DEFINITELY get the serving station with the roast. We also had smashed/mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese and chives, their julienne vegetables (which put all other vegetables in our lives to shame), and some supposedly outstanding hors d'oeuvres (though we didn't get to try them).
The staff worked with us to make our day absolutely perfect, and we couldn't have imagined anything better! If you're looking for a wedding venue in Northern Ohio, MAKE SURE you visit Portage!!!
