Please use this as a guide. These are some of the best vendors that we've worked with over the years, we would trust them for our own wedding and we know the'll take excellent care of you!
Animals! Duh! All joking aside the Toledo Zoo is one of the most versatile wedding venues in the area! The photography potential alone is endless. It's large enough to hold the biggest wedding and there are animals everywhere! The private gardens are perfect for an outdoor ceremony, there are several reception spaces and lastly, did we mention the animals?
Old world charm fills this luxurious wedding venue in downtown Toledo. Every room is gorgeous and full of rich history. As for photographing, it suits our dark and moody style perfectly! We love the warmth and contrast this venue gives us.
Rooftop ceremony in the city! This wedding venue has it going on. The food is delicious and the staff is amazing! Hensville has several different options to hold your ceremony and reception. We love the warehouse feel of the historic buildings and we never run out of places to photograph when in the city.
Driving down the winding River Road on a beautiful Saturday in the summer and being greeted by the incredible Nazareth Hall will take your guests breath away! This place is full of charm and character, has a beautiful grotto for outdoor ceremonies and three beautiful and unique ballrooms that fit nearly any size wedding. The staff is second to none and truly cater to each and every couple.
It's a modern space that has a ton of character and charm. The atmosphere is more dark and moody (which is right up our alley) as opposed to bright and airy, which is perfect for an intimate wedding and reception. The food and service are second to none, if you haven't eaten here, what are you waiting for! Bonus- there's an art gallery which is perfect for cocktail hour!
If you love that rustic industrial charm, look no further. The Venues is an awesome venue in downtown Toledo that has a ton of possibilities. We love how each room has a completely different feel from bright to dark. And the outdoor space with that saw tooth roof!?
We love photographing here because it provides a completely different feel than anywhere else on this list. It's a little drive from Toledo but it's well worth it! There is something magical about being on the water, don't you think?
The Renaissance Hotel is a Toledo themed hotel in the heart of downtown. The rooms, lobby, ballroom, rooftop, and outside are all gorgeous and beautifully decorated. Plus if you have out of town guest, the hotel is right on site! Do yourself a favor and check it out!
The Valentine is such a unique space that often gets overlooked. It's beautiful wall of glass has this amazing effect that completely changes the look of a reception as the sun sets. Not to mention the theater and lobby that are absolutely gorgeous!!
Hands down our favorite venues are the places we've never been before. We love the challenge of photographing somewhere new and unique. But most importantly, we love when our couples seek out a venue that either means something important to them or they're wanting to give their guest a truly unique experience. From historic homes to mid-century architecture and from family property to breathtaking views of the ocean, unique venues hold a special place in our heart.
When working with a full wedding designer, you should expect someone that truly understands your vision and knows not only how to execute that but deliver a wedding beyond your wildest dreams. Erica and her team know how to do that and we love them.
Saying that you don't have to worry about your wedding day running smoothly is an understatement. Working with the Bee's you can rest assure that everything will be handled and all you have to do is relax and get married... Seriously!
More than a coordinator. April and her team go above and beyond to make sure things run smoothly and everyone works as a team. They're so easy to work with and on top of coordination they also provide floral design and decor rental!
First off, do yourself a favor and buy a suit for your wedding. It's going to cost about the same as renting and you will have a tailored suit that fits you perfectly! Now that our PSA is over, Ticknors is an awesome place for mens wear that's dedicated to service and style.
