Wow! Hello again. Wedding season has been in full swing for us and it has been difficult to keep up with blogging. 2012 has been an amazing year. I have personally worked with some of the most amazing couples this year. I love meeting them, getting to know them, watching them share their big day and then following along with their lives afterwards on Facebook.
Another thing I love is the variety of venues I get to work at over the course of a wedding season. This year has been exceptionally amazing in that regard.
Here are a few of the amazing venues I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year. I hope this gives some of you some great ideas for your events. Keep in mind these are only a few. There are links to many more great venues right on this page.
Griffin Gate Resort -Lexington (above)
Get married on the Mansion lawn and party in this awesome tent. Yes I’ll go to Lexington (Louisville too)
Green Acres – Indian Hill Ohio (above)
This place is amazing. Talk about a Mansio! Google pictures of this place or see the ones I posted on our Facebook page. The grounds features a large fountain, a massive rock wall and a permanent tent that is just insanely beautiful.
Krippendorf Lodge at Cincinnati Nature Center (above)
For an outdoor wedding and reception this place is perfect. The lodge has a wrap around porch that can be used for seating. The patio works for seating and for dancing. Great for those who love nature.
Newport Aquarium – Newport KY (above)
The Aquarium has a beautiful ballroom and also features added entertainment for your guests. They can view the aquarium then come dance the night away with a city view and a patio right on the river. For a few extra bucks you can even have a penguin visit your reception.
The Hilton – Hall Of Mirrors (above)
This historic room is one of the nicest in the entire city. With a wrap around balcony this room can be decorated with light and transformed into anything you can imagine. With 5 star service you’ll be sure to impress your guests here.
Drees Pavillion – Devoe Park Covington Ky (above)
It is no surprise that this place sells out every year. The room is awesome and the view of the Cincinnati Skyline is simply breathtaking. The gazebo is a great setting for your ceremony and the patio is perfect for cocktail hour. Then the guests will move inside for the party.
The Schuster Center – Dayton Ohio (above)
This venue is incredible. The Wintergarden features giant palm trees and is surrounded with glass. A giant staircase makes the entrance to the room dramatic and the separate bar area can be used for the cocktail hour.
The Bell Event Centre – Cincinnati Ohio (above)
This renovated historical church is simply one of the most impressive wedding venues in Cincinnati. Front of the room still features the classic church feel and is perfect for your ceremony. The Veranda outside is elegant and a nice change of pace for your cocktail hour. Then when your guests move back inside they will find that the room has been transformed into a very modern vibrant reception.
Again there are many great venues to choose from in the Tri-State. These are just a few of the amazing places. For links to other places we recommend check out the links on the side of this page.
Finally,. think about this. As amazing as these venues are, without great entertainment your reception could still fall flat. Hire a proven professional. I’m available nationwide.
Until next time… have fun planning your big day!
