Top 7 Spring Wedding Venues in Ohio

The uncertainty of Ohio’s weather is the stuff of household knowledge and the nonstop butt of internet jokes. Nevertheless, it is true, you never know what the weather will hold in Ohio. So if you’re getting married in the area—particularly in spring—how do you plan for such an occasion? 

The answer is simple: it all comes down to the venue. 

You may not be able to control the rain from staying back on your spring day, or the snow or heat or tornado warnings (who knows, we’ve seen it all). But with the right venue, you can rest assured that your wedding day (and guests) are covered…literally. 

You’ll want to look for a wedding venue with indoor outdoor capabilities, and grounds that impress regardless of an early harvest. Something with enough outdoor space in case it’s a sunny outdoor ceremony in May, as well as a tented or indoor option in case the rain pours for good luck. 

Here are a few of the best wedding venue options in Ohio for your spring wedding.

1. Magnolia Hill Farm - an elevated blank canvas

A wedding venue built especially for spring weddings? Possibly. Magnolia Hill Farms succeeds in its indoor-outdoor goal of arched doorways that make the ohio countryside feel like a Tuscan destination. A perfect blank canvas to decorate any way you see fit, MHF kinda feels like the whole package for a breezy spring wedding.

2. Columbus Museum of Art  - artful spring wedding venue

What I love about the art museum (aside from my obvious appreciation for the arts themselves) is the options it comes with. You have the choice between the outdoor courtyard and gardens, the indoor grand ballroom, or the indoor courtyard with a sun roof. For our indecisive spring weather, what could be better for an ohio bride?

Not only does the Columbus Museum of Art offer the perfect entertainment for guests during cocktail hour with their galleries wide open, but the masterful team of coordinators and vendors can bring your vision to life and keep you in awe for years to come. 


3. Jorgensen: The Gardens - an Ohio wedding destination

We all love Jorgensen Oak Grove, but have you checked out their other venue: The Gardens? Previously the historic barn, this renovated section of the grounds brings to life a combo of modern and rooted atmospheres. The Gardens building is idilic for a timeless ceremony backed by a greenery wall and with natural light flowing in from the back and sides.

The getting ready apartments offer the bride and groom respectively private space to get ready while the historic barn remains in tact for a reception to remember. 

4. Bryn Du Mansion - refined Mr.-Darcy-core dream wedding location

I may be biased, but I spent hours of my after school days on the Bryn Du grounds. Many of my athletic events took place in the field house and I still have prom photos shot right in front of the iconic Bryn Du Mansion. The venue was built for a formal affair and the wedding services are no exception.

Bryn Du offers couples exclusive space nestled in Granville, Ohio’s desired neighborhood, complete with manicured grounds, indoor/outdoor options, and of course, space for your stunning spring tent wedding. Your guests will have plenty of space to park and enjoy the gardens during cocktail hour while the manicured landscape provides a peaceful and private atmosphere for any wedding event. 

5. Jeffrey Mansion - the castle close to home

Charming, romantic, whimsical, historical, lovely—there are many words to describe the warming feeling of the mansion. Its poised location in Bexley (between unique homes and a pine forrest) offers a central location near the Columbus area with parking on the grounds and space to roam about freely.

The indoor ceremony option features a natural sunlight roof, or a cozy fireside vow exchange. The stairs, dogwoods and pines outside allow for breathtaking pause for photos and mingling all throughout the celebration.

6. Irongate equestrian Center - countryside charm meets an elevated party for the ages

If space is a concern, Irongate has your back—triple time. Not only is this the ideal venue for romantics and horse fanatics alike, but the Irongate grounds serenely display the rolling hills of rural buckeye state and an undeniably memorable indoor set up. Fit for hundreds of your dearest friends, the skilled team assembles perfect wedding set ups to transform the horse once active stables into upscale dance floors and cocktail hours.

7. The Center Cincinatti - garden charm in a modern venue

Another option for pure wow-factor? The Center in Cincinatti has options to spare. With versatility for your any-season wedding, a spring celebration would best suite these grounds with its soft color palette and customization ability. Round up your fave people and get ready to party.
