Thinking about saying “I do” in the queen city? We’ve listed the best wedding venues in Cincinnati below.
The main reason why we love weddings at the Cincinnati Art Museum? Their indoor and outdoor spaces. CAM offers an outdoor courtyard right in the middle of the museum. This courtyard is surrounded by tall walls and stunning stone architecture. CAM’s courtyard has a small garden and a series of fountains. A wedding ceremony or reception could take place here. If a rain plan is needed, The Great Hall is a wonderful option. The Great Hall has two beautiful iron staircases that reach the ceiling and plenty of room to hold a ceremony and/or reception. We love how multiple flower color palettes look great at this venue. You can see one of our favorite weddings there, here.
Only a few minutes from downtown Cincinnati, Greenacres is one of our favorite wedding venues. Greenacres sits on 600 acres of rolling green hills, which makes for a stunning backdrop. You won’t lack beautiful photos if you get married here! This venue offers manicured gardens and fountains to help bring a garden feel. The house is fully restored, which allows for any and all modern amenities. The tent is state of the art. It can hold up to 400 guests and is even air conditioned! We love the look of large hanging installations in the grand tent at Greenacres!
Pinecroft Estate is a historic venue with stunning outdoor grounds. With the old world architecture and decor, Pinecroft will be sure to bring a memorable experience! Pinecroft offers plenty of space for your wedding party to get ready in, which is so nice! Our favorite reason to love this wedding venue are the estate’s grounds. Pinecroft has beautiful gardens that will make your ceremony, cocktail hour, and even reception memorable! If weather permits, we highly recommend holding your ceremony out in the garden or up against the house. Their tented reception space is perfect for a large wedding guest count.

The Peterloon home is one of the grandest in the Cincinnati area. This house contains 36 rooms, 21 baths, and 19 fireplaces. The home is influenced by Georgian and Queen Anne styles and is a perfect backdrop for wedding pictures. Peterloon sits on a 1,200 acre lot with gardens and outdoor architecture to please the eyes. With these gardens come multiple outdoor ceremony options. You can also use the large home for smaller weddings if needed because of weather. Peterloon offers an outdoor tent that can hold up to 250 guests. We love the look of their tent. It is definitely our favorite part of getting married at Peterloon!
Wedding venues in Cincinnati are known for being historic, and French Park is no different! Their outdoor tent is brand new with a modern vibe. This tent allows you to have your wedding outside, but can allow peace of mind for any kind of weather. French Park offers their manor as a place for the wedding party to get ready in, which is so convenient on the event day. Their gardens surrounding the estate and tent provide many Instagram-able moments and your sure to have beautiful photos to enjoy for years to come. We loved this event and how they utilized the garden space!
The Taft Museum of Art is another historic wedding venue right in downtown Cincinnati. The house and gardens surrounding provide a classic and elegant style for your wedding. Their tent is right in the middle of their gardens and is perfect for holding your reception. The historic house is also available to use for smaller events or if weather isn’t ideal. We haven’t done an event here, but hope to able to soon!
The Monastery is one of the oldest buildings to get married in. With soaring ceilings and large windows, you are sure to have an awe-inspiring experience. We love how The Monastery kept most of the original colors and artwork. It definitely adds a sense of history to the space! We love using tall designs to help connect the ceiling to the floor. This wedding with our custom made canopies was one of our favorites! This wedding venue in Cincinnati is a very popular choice, so make sure you book your date well in advance.

"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!"
-Bo, Spring 2019 Wedding
