I frequently get asked what my favorite wedding venues are in Columbus, Ohio. Good news! There’s a lot! A wide range of styles to find your your perfect fit! I’ve created a list of some of my favorites and I’m so excited to share! 

If you’re planning a wedding in Columbus, Ohio, finding your venue is the perfect place to start. I will also say, if you have a dream photographer in mind, reach out to us asking for our availability (to compare with venue availability) because I’m personally booking anywhere from 9-18 months in advance!

I’ve put together a list (in no particular order) of my favorite wedding venues in Columbus + a few with a short drive. There are A LOT of amazing venues in Columbus, so it was quite difficult to narrow down this list. If you’d like to add a suggestion, chime in down in the comments below!

The Ohio Statehouse

Classic, elegant and timeless, what’s not to love about the Ohio Statehouse? The rotunda is such a unique ceremony space, and the atrium can be transformed into your dream reception!

Dock 580 Juniper

A rooftop ceremony and reception? Yes, please! Treat yourselves and guests to skyline views at Dock 580’s Juniper.

The Westin Great Southern Columbus

If you’re looking for a light and airy, romantic ballroom for your wedding — look no further. I have three weddings at The Westin this year, and I could not be more excited!

Franklin Park Conservatory

This space is one of-a-kind to Columbus. The Franklin Park Conservatory’s sprawling, lush gardens and striking architecture lends nature-inspired beauty both inside and out.

Columbus Museum of Art

Also located downtown, I love all of what the inside and outside has to offer at the Columbus Museum of Art. Pair this venue with a few fine-art floral installations, and the space will take care of the rest!

Irongate Equestrian and Event Center

OK, this one is a bit outside of Columbus, but I had to include it on my list! Beautiful tree-lined grounds, so much fun character, dreamy indoor reception string lights and of course, horses! On the blog: https://laurenleephoto.com/2017/10/irongate-equestrian-center-wedding/

Jorgensen Farms

Everyone loves Jorgensen, both the historic barn (with that classic yellow/orange door) and Oak Grove (a stunning historical greenhouse)! These two venues are beautifully maintained and operated for weddings just northeast of Columbus. On the blog: https://laurenleephoto.com/2018/04/jorgensen-farms-wedding/

Via Vecchia Winery

Industrial Chic. Via Vecchia is opening a new space on South High Street in June 2019 and comes with it is 6,000 sq. ft. of indoor space and a spacious outdoor space!

Strongwater Events

Strongwater Events is another industrial space that I love. Exposed brick and all of the character. Its outdoor courtyard brings such a fun aesthetic to your ceremony.

Pretty Prairie Farm

This is another wedding venue a bit outside of Columbus. You won’t find much on social media about Pretty Prairie Farm. But my goodness, this property is beyond dreamy! The welcoming owners live on the property and allow for you to make the space your own. On the blog: https://laurenleephoto.com/2018/08/pretty-prairie-farm-grace-zach-wedding/

The Fives Columbus

The Fives Columbus has been on my *watch list*. It’s a brand-new venue owned and serviced by Two Caterers that’s opening in the Spring of 2020.

The Athletic Club of Columbus

Situated near the heart of downtown, what a romantic, jaw-dropping space! The detail in The Athletic Club is unrivaled in my opinion.
