Jerrica Grace

Jerrica is dedicated to bringing your vision to life! She provides all the planning and preparation guidance for weddings and events at the Onesto Event Center, as well as guest tours. “The first time I saw the Onesto, I was in awe of how beautiful the building is I felt important being here, and a part of such a special piece of history,” says Jerrica.

The grand lobby and the Ballroom are Jerrica’s favorite parts of the Onesto. She likes to “paint a picture to the hosts how to visualize themselves being introduced and having their first dance, speeches, cake cutting, special moments, and more.” Jerrica Grace also works with event hosts to create event timelines, design room layouts, help with vendor coordination and recommendations, and leads our Onesto staff to execute beautiful events.

Jerrica Grace dedicates herself to going above and beyond to ensure everything is perfect for our events. She believes it’s important to be thorough in meeting expectations and works to help our hosts organize successful events that create lasting memories. Jerrica goes beyond to provide an elevated customer experience, connecting with every host and making them feel as if she’s an extension of their family.

What’s Jerrica’s best day at work? “When I get to be a part of the entire process of planning an event,” she says. “It’s fulfilling to see an event come together. From the setup and decorating the venue to being the last person to say congratulations at the end of the night.”

Lynae brings a passion for story and design to your special moments held at the Onesto Event Center and the Old Stone Chapel. Lynae’s flair for event planning is rooted in fashion and design, having earned a degree in Fashion Merchandising from Kent State University.

“The first time I set foot in the Onesto I could feel that it had a real story,” says Lynae. “The history here is so rich. I then learned that everything possible was done to restore this old hotel to its original state which gives it such a beautiful nostalgia.”

She recognizes that every event tells a story, too – whether it’s a wedding, business event or other celebration.

Lynae appreciates the facilities and their location. She enjoys giving tours to show guests the impressive details. “The lobby is majestic and breathtaking, while the bridal suites have such a special historic feel,” she says. “The views of downtown Canton from the suites are something that can’t be seen from anywhere else.”

“I am always enthusiastic about meeting with clients and sharing my passion for downtown Canton,” she adds.
