Destination Weddings – Ohio Edition

Ohio is a great place for a destination wedding, it’s a state that offers everything you could possibly want for a destination wedding. First of all, there are the beautiful shores of Lake Erie, which offer tremendous picturesque backdrops ideal for any wedding. While the summer months are particularly stunning, you can still enjoy the lakeside at any time of year. Another great location in Ohio is Hocking Hills. This secluded and rustic location is perfect for an intimate wedding. The views are simply breath-taking and you can be immersed in the wonderful nature of the Buckeye State!


We’ve traveled extensively across the state of Ohio with our photo booths. Let’s look at some of the locations we’ve installed our booths at, which are great for destination weddings.

The Villas at Gervasi Vinyard

THE RUSTIC STYLE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

Canyon Run Ranch is a beautiful, vast farm with an 1850’s barn and 153 acres of placidity- exactly what the Hemler’s had in mind for their wedding.

Both the ceremony and reception were held at the ranch. There is a private residence reserved for the bridal party and when they are ready, they are taken by golf cart to the ceremony. After the I Do’s, several buggies escort the guests down to the barn for the reception.

Hand-Picked by Arnold Palmer

We brought our Big Black Photobooth to a gorgeous wedding on a golf course, and not just any golf course, a course created by Arnold Palmer himself. The center is surrounded by beautiful, vast golf courses and trees, with ponds and lakes scattered across the grounds. Arnold Pamler designed the 18-hole private golf course, which guests can use too! After golfing the course, Palmer said, “I don’t think you will ever see three holes better than the last three here.” The Oasis Golf Club and Conference Center has a little something for everyone; professionals like Arnold or the occasional novice golfer.

Can a Barn Wedding be Elegant?

Photo Source: http://www.jlhweddingbarn.com/

With barn weddings becoming increasingly popular, people are wondering if achieving the charming, rustic style requires sacrificing an element of elegance (dealing with heat, dust etc). Well, I visited a wedding barn over the weekend that proved to me it is possible to achieve both. It was a scenic drive to JLH Wedding Barn, with acres of farmland, crops and animals, (I passed a pasture of cows on my way down the gravel driveway to the barn).

Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church

We were ecstatic to be invited to capture the fun at Melanie and George’s wedding reception, this past July. Melanie and George were married at the newly renovated University of Dayton Chapel (absolutely stunning) and held their reception at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in downtown Dayton, right next to the Dayton Art Institute. If you haven’t been to a reception held in this church, you are missing out! With plenty of room for a huge dance floor, long bridal party table, photo booth, and more, it is a great location if you have a larger guest list to accommodate.

Paul Brown Stadium

We were excited when the newlyweds, Matt and Laura, invited us to celebrate with them at Paul Brown Stadium (PBS), home of the Cincinnati Bengals. (Who Dey!)  Sports fanatic or not, Paul Brown Stadium is a beautiful place to hold a wedding. The captivating 62’ glass wall of windows allows for a majestic view of the Cincinnati skyline. From start to finish, the PBS event manager, Rachael, and her staff were very efficient and well-organized. They went above and beyond to make sure that set-up would be easy and seamless. From meeting us at the front gate, to guiding us through the East lounge, the PBS staff made every aspect of our setup a piece of cake.

Thanks to the help of Rachael and PBS staff, the night went on without a hitch; and our photo booth had a non-stop line of guests having the time of their lives. The full memory album, given to Matt and Laura, was the Picture Perfect proof of the great times everyone had. Thanks to Paul Brown Stadium, their wonderful staff, and the newlyweds for choosing Picture Perfect to help capture their wedding day memories!
