Last June, we looked at five iconic locations in Columbus that are perfect for hosting a memorable wedding reception (read about the Franklin Park Conservatory, Ohio Statehouse, Columbus Park of Roses, Ohio Stadium, and Dock 580 in the original post here). It’s no surprise, however, that there are many more great places to consider for your big day.
Whether you’re looking to host an event that is economical or extravagant, rustic or glamorous, big or small, you’ll find a range of options in central Ohio that are guaranteed to make your dream wedding possible. Below is a snapshot of five additional venues that are worth considering for your ceremony and/or reception.
Columbus Zoo and Aquarium – The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is home to more than 9,000 animals and a major contributor to conservation efforts around the world. Couples with a passion for wildlife may be excited to learn that the zoo also offers beautiful indoor and outdoor settings for ceremonies and banquet facilities for receptions. Your big day, complete with amazing scenery and animals, will be a memorable one for all you guests.
Station 67 – Station 67 and its famous clock tower are among the most unique structures in Columbus. This venue offers breathtaking architecture, a beautiful garden and an impressive view of downtown. If you are looking for a grand location with historical significance and endless photo opportunities, Station 67 may be perfect for your wedding day.
Amelita Mirolo Barn – The Amelita Mirolo Barn provides a rustic setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Not only does this old barn structure provide a charming country vibe, it also offers large outdoor patios and overlooks a beautiful park and pond. The Amelita Mirolo Barn is a beloved community gem that is sure to make your wedding day extra special.
The Vault – For a truly dazzling and distinctive wedding experience in downtown Columbus, The Vault does not disappoint. The chandelier, marble flooring and actual vault date back to 1912, when this was the location of Columbia Building & Loans. A wedding held at the Vault is sure to be as elegant and timeless as the building itself.
The Dawes Arboretum – Nature enthusiasts won’t need to look any further than The Dawes Arboretum to host the wedding of their dreams. Several garden ceremony sites are meticulously cared for to ensure a serene and natural setting for your special day, along with an indoor and outdoor reception space.
