Ohio-Cincinnati

Best of both anyone?

I am getting married next Aug and my fiance and I are beginning to look at venues.  I really want an outdoor wedding with a gazebo then an indoor "fun" reception.  However, I have come to find that places, such as manor house, have a gorgeous gazebo, but are either wayyy out of budget or just seem like they have "older couples' " receptions.  I love The Elements reception, but if I am going to spend that much on a reception it leaves me with hardly any money to pay for an outdoor ceremony somewhere.  Any suggestions?

    How about Receptions Inc?  We were impressed by them.  They offer all-inclusive prices so it's very convenient.  They have 5 or so locations to choose from.

    We are getting married at Walden Ponds Golf Club. I love it there it is a beauitful outdoor location, there is a gazebo for the ceremony. We are having our reception there also in their outdoor tent but depending on how many people you can use the Mansion for an indoor reception or you could go somewhere else.

    Ditto on Aston Oaks... very affordable and extremely flexible (they'll accomodate any crazy plan you suggest at no extra charge)

    We are getting married at The Wedding Setting at Withrow Nature Preserve. It is one of the Hamilton county parks, which are the absolute nicest people I have ever had to deal with!! They have many many choices for reception locations.

    Most golf courses fit the bill.
    Check Pyramid Hill Sculpture park, BB River boats, Camp Kern, Tori's Station, Nathaniel Green Lodge, Norlyn Manor, Pattison Lodge, Vinoklet Winery, Wiedemann Hill Mansion, Wunderland Banquet Hall, Lake Lyndsay.

    I third Aston Oaks. I'm getting married there in May and they have been so good to work with. Lindsey is very accommodating.

    Fairfield banquet center used to look dated but they have recently done a lot of rennovating and have made it very nice and very affordable compared to other venues!!!

    Definitely Aston Oaks:   A gazebo next to a small waterfall and only steps away from indoors in case it rains.  A great setting and easily accessable for your guests.
