Designing timeless stationery in Findlay, Ohio for romantic couples.


As a wedding invitation suite designer, I’m constantly in awe of the incredible wedding venues we have local to us in Cincinnati, Ohio. Whether it’s an intimate gathering or a grand affair, Cincinnati has stunning venues to suit your needs. Today I want to share which, in my opinion, are the best Cincinnati Ohio wedding venues in 2024. Plus, I’m sharing real wedding invitation ideas and inspiration from real weddings for each venue. I’ve designed both custom and semi-custom invitations for these beauties! I had so much fun putting this together, so let’s dive in! You can browse all of my semi-custom collections here, or learn more about working with me for a custom wedding invitation suite here.

PS: If you are planning to work with a wedding planner, it’s usually recommended that you hire your wedding planner before you book a venue! That way, they can guide you through the process and make sure you are choosing the perfect venue for your vision, guest count, and budget. The five weddings featured below were planned by either Natalia’s Event Planning or Everlasting Events – both whom I would highly recommend!

Ault Park

Ault Park is one of the largest parks in Southwest Ohio, so there’s no shortage of gorgeous backdrops for your wedding photos here. On top of that, the Ault Park Grand Pavilion offers a stunning reception space rich in architectural vibes. If you’re dreaming of a timeless romantic wedding, it’s the perfect place. Scroll to see gorgeous photos from Off Path Photography for a recent wedding I worked on with planner and designer Natalie of Natalia’s Event Planning. For this summer wedding, we created a ton of personal details: from a greenery pattern and custom monogram that was found on both the wedding invitations and wedding day stationery, to the wax seals with their initials that were wrapped with ribbon around each invitation and used again on the seating chart.

French Park

Next, I couldn’t create a list of the best Cincinnati wedding venues without bringing up French Park. With over 275 miles of hiking trails and outdoor space, French Park is one of my favorite summer wedding venues in Cincinnati. The French House, available for your wedding reservation, boasts a rich history dating back to the early 1900s. Its timeless charm has been seamlessly preserved through numerous updates, ensuring a unique and stunning place for your wedding day. Or, you could do what Ashley and Evan did and opt for an outdoor tented affair instead! The photos below were taken by Hayley Moore and this wedding was planned by Everlasting Events.

Cincinnati Art Museum

The Cincinnati Art Museum provides an awe-inspiring atmosphere for any special occasion. The grand hallways, opulent art pieces, and cozy spaces make it the perfect setting for a wedding celebration. With its unique combination of modern and classical design, the museum can provide an unforgettable experience for any event. There’s also plenty of space to accommodate a large guest list, making it an easy choice as one of the best wedding venues in Cincinnati. I was recently asked by Natalie of Natalia’s Event Planning to be a part of a gorgeous styled shoot here, so I’m sharing a few of my favorite images by Kortni and Chris Photography below!

Laurel Court Mansion

This gorgeous two-story home (with nearly 20,000 square feet of room) is another one of my favorite Cincinnati wedding venues. Located in the vibrant neighborhood of College Hill, this early 20th-century residence exudes timeless sophistication. Enhancing the property’s allure are French Château-style cottages, a picturesque French country-style carriage house, and sprawling gardens. With a variety of event spaces available depending on the size of your guest list, you’ll be able to find the perfect spot for your wedding celebration. These photos below from Odessa James Photography just offer a taste or what you can expect if you plan your wedding at this incredible Cincinnati wedding venue. This stunning wedding was planned by Everlasting Events.

Manor House

Lastly, if you’re searching for a stunning all-inclusive style wedding venue, the Manor House is my choice for a top Northern Cincinnati wedding venue. With three different locations on site to host your wedding (the main building, gorgeous gardens, or the Carriage House), there is something for everyone at this stunning Cincinnati venue. Natalie is a favorite wedding planner for Manor House weddings and designed and planned this one for Olivia and Andrew. Below, you’ll see photos are from a wedding I got to be a part of with photographer Amber Victoria Photography. I think they capture the venue just so beautifully! It’s a favorite for sure.
