Whether you can’t imagine not celebrating your wedding outside or you are looking for a perfect summer wedding venue with gorgeous views, you’re bound to love these top outdoor wedding locations in Ohio!
Take a look at some of our favorite venues in this beautiful Midwestern state to help start your wedding plans.
If you’re hoping to host your wedding at an elegant location with a truly magical and vintage feel — all while being outdoors — this might be it. From the lush gardens and the old manor house built of stone, to the fountains and grand piano, this venue is a perfect blend of history and modern elegance.
Want to take advantage of the warmer weather and enjoy sweeping views of Lake Erie? Consider the Aloft Hotel in Downtown Cleveland! This wedding venue has a large outdoor veranda overlooking the lake and lots of space for a large wedding. It’s great for couples who want a good balance of natural light, modern architecture, or lake and city views.
For a venue like no other in the Midwest, head on over to the only bamboo garden anywhere in the area! Between the 7-acre lake, a bamboo woodland growing all around the property and antique Chinese statues onsite, this venue is an ideal spot for those wanting an intimate (and maybe peaceful!) vibe on their wedding day — just perfect for boho brides.
For a more intimate ceremony in the countryside, there are few venues better than the Canyon Run Ranch in Ohio. Enjoy wooded hillsides, running streams and waterfalls, and over 150 acres of views. And if you want an indoor/outdoor combination for your reception, the Barn offers you the opportunity to still feel like your outdoors while having shade overhead.
What better place to have an outdoor wedding than in a botanical garden? Surround yourself with lush flowers, ponds, pebble stone pathways, waterfalls and more at this gorgeous garden wedding venue!
For couples who love the city life, an outdoor patio on the roof of a stunning hotel may be a great fit! The Renaissance Hotel in Columbus offers a Cityview Terrace, complete with views of downtown and Capitol Square. There’s even room for up to 350 guests!
While the Palm House and Grand Atrium at this conservatory are technically enclosed, they still give an organic vibe for those who love nature and lots of greenery. You also can choose to get married outside on one of the terraces, lawns or gardens with one of the stunning greenhouses as your backdrop!
Florals and greenery can make your special day stand out in a unique way that you’ll remember for years to come.

"Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful! I can’t say enough good things about Kaytee and her team. The flowers for our wedding far exceeded our expectations. They were stunning and our guests raved about how beautiful the bouquets and decor were! Kaytee understood our vision and created a beautiful setting for the wedding. Last but not least, Kaytee worked well within our budget and made good recommendations. Thanks Kaytee and team!"
-Megan, Mother of the Bride, Spring 2019 Wedding
“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
