Meet Mary Vanucci

Wedding Specialist
and Catering Sales Manager

I joined the InterContinental Cleveland in October of 2006 bringing with me more than 20 years of wedding and special event planning experience. As a Wedding Specialist and Catering Sales Manager, I am responsible for weddings and other large social events, including galas and corporate functions.

As a direct result of the highly personalized attention I provide bridal couples, the majority of weddings hosted at the hotel are the result of referrals from past brides, often being able to assist all the daughters in the same family. One of the greatest testaments to the facility, staff and service provided by the InterContinental Cleveland is that my husband and I hosted our only daughter's wedding at the hotel in 2006, prior to my joining the hotel staff.  My experience at the hotel as the mother of the bride proves invaluable when working with mothers (and fathers) who are planning their own children's weddings.  
To stay current and on trend, I attend local bridal shows, and network with bridal vendors and wedding planners.  I recently traveled to Washington, DC to assist with a large wedding showcase, where I learned more about what today's brides and grooms value before, during and after their wedding event.
I am a graduate of the University of Dayton, an avid tennis player, and I love to travel.  When not working with brides, I enjoy spending time with my husband and grown children.  Now that you know a bit about me, let's meet personally so I can learn how I can help to make your wedding spectacular.

Wedding Specialist
and Catering Sales Manager

Being a part of the wedding planning team at the InterContinental Cleveland is a huge honor for me.  When a bride and groom decide to work with me I feel privileged to be included in their special day.  I fell in love with wedding planning while planning my own.  I know the significance of every detail.  Whether it is the placement of a sash on a dining chair, adding a fresh garnish on a plate, or recommending a meaningful song to be played as a couple dances together as husband and wife, it all adds up to memories that will last forever.

I've been involved in wedding planning for nearly 10 years.  It is my responsibility to ensure that the brides and grooms I work with are able to bring their vision of a perfect wedding to life.  Every couple is unique and each have their own vision.
