Wanting to celebrate your big day in the Buckeye State? We’ve rounded up the top wedding venues in Ohio. I’ve very excited to also have Marina Claire Photography join us on this blog. Marina is a Cleveland wedding photographer, and her work is stunning. If you’re looking for someone in Ohio she’s the girl for the job!
If you’ve always imagined getting married in a lush garden, Kingwood Garden Center is the perfect wedding venue for you! There are multiple spots to choose from to say your wedding vows. A great big lawn can hold your tented or open reception. Kingwood Garden Center also has a beautiful historic estate to have your wedding party get ready in. We love that the grounds feel intimate but still offer plenty of space to roam. Located in central Ohio, this venue attracts both Columbus and Cleveland couples. Photos by Nicole Clarey Photography.
If you’re looking for a barn wedding venue with a modern vibe, Jorgensen Farms is the perfect place! With glass windows on all sides of the building, you can really bring the outdoors in. Jorgensen Farms also has a beautiful property where you can hold an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour. This wedding venue offers multiple indoor and outdoor locations to hold your event. From a floral perspective, we love how many styles and aesthetics look great at this Ohio wedding venue. Since the space has a clean slate, any floral color palette will look great. Marina adds, “I couldn’t agree more, it really is a blank slate that will flatter multiple palettes and styles. With the weather being so unpredictable in Ohio, the greenhouse gives you that outside ceremony feeling with no pressure of worrying about the weather. I also love when venues have outdoor spaces that let guests spread out & enjoy good weather.” by Marina Claire Photography.
If you’re wanting destination wedding but can’t necessarily afford one, Peter Allen Inn is a great substitute. Just outside of Cleveland, this wedding venue is hidden in a small town surrounded by farms. However, Peter Allen is no barn wedding venue. With a modern tent to hold your reception, your upscale wedding aesthetic can fit right in. We also love that the Inn has a mix of traditional and modern architecture. When the sun is shining, their lawn is the perfect place to say “I do!”. Photos by Lace and Waves.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is another great wedding venue. Our favorite space to hold your event is the The Ames Family Atrium. We love how it’s covered but still has an outdoor feel! With the venue’s neutral colors, couples can be creative with their floral color palettes! Flowers are a great way to brighten up a space or to bring the outdoors in. Marina agrees and says, “One of my favorite things about the atrium is all the natural light. My perfect idea of a wedding here would be a ceremony outside on the gorgeous marble stairs and reception inside the atrium. Florals are a huge factor in a space like this which can look too stark. Experts like Roots Floral Design know how to soften and enhance a space like this.”
Magnolia Hill Farm is a brand new Columbus wedding venue that just opened in 2019. The structure may look like a traditional barn venue from afar, but once inside you see it’s full of modern twists. Hands down, our favorite detail about Magnolia Hill is their open “doors” ceremony room. We love that you can feel right on the farm, but still be protected by wind, sun, or rain. This top wedding venue in Ohio is one not to miss! Photos by Stephanie Kase Photography.

"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
