The best Cincinnati Wedding Venues

The Monastery Event Center
I think I could just say TOTALLY GORGEOUS and leave it at that but I also need to mention how incredible their staff is.. oh, and the food!

Drees Pavilion
I got married here so it’s extra special to me 🙂 It could not have been better!

Cincinnati Art Museum
I had my wedding photos taken here so it is another personal fave 🙂 But I am obsessed with the courtyard at the Art Museum!! Classy, beautifully lit and gorgeous architecture!

Mojave East
Mojave is a newer venue on the east side of town but it is a GEM and so unique!! Everything was designed with gorgeous imagery in mind.

Taft Museum of Art
I love the estate meets museum ambiance at the Taft. Another gorgeous courtyard!

Cincinnati Nature Center – Krippendorf Lodge

Cocktail hour at Krippendorf Lodge, Cincinnati Nature Center's outdoor wedding venue

Probably my favorite thing about Krippendorf Lodge is that their ceremony/reception space is covered under a glass awning so no matter what the weather is it will be beautiful and still have that in-nature feeling.

French Park
French Park is perfect for an intimate and estate-like historical setting.

Ault Park

Outdoor wedding ceremony at Ault Park in Cincinnati, Ohio

Cannot go wrong at all with Ault Park!! The covered Pavilion is THE most beautiful light so it is perfect for a ceremony/ reception!

If you are into historical mansions- and love wow factor then look no further!

Newly renovated and with a wonderful staff you cannot go wrong with the Cincinnati Club located in the heart of the city!
