There are dozens of decisions to make and details to select, styles to choose from and dresses to alter. And we know that you and your fiancé will be working hard throughout the process to make your wedding day a representation of yourselves and your relationship – which is precisely why we want to lend a helping hand and get you started on your planning adventure. So, without further ado, we’ve collected some of the best vendors around to inspire you on the path to your Columbus wedding and the newlywed bliss that will follow.

Columbus Wedding Venues

When it comes to Columbus wedding locations, it’s hard to beat the area’s classics. The Westin Columbus – located right in the heart of downtown Columbus – is a AAA Four Diamond award-winning hotel and one wonderful wedding venue. Historic, high class, and utterly romantic, the building’s wedding and reception sites have officially captured our heart. The Grand Ballroom is particularly elegant, with white marble floors, floor to ceiling windows and mirrors, and gold accents. Meanwhile, the Cityview Terrace at the Renaissance Columbus has incredible views and is well-suited to outdoor ceremonies and receptions alike.

Columbus Wedding Photographers

Of the numerous talented wedding photographers in Columbus, we’ve convinced ourselves – for the purpose of keeping this article a manageable length – to share only two with you today. First, Courtney Mason Photography.
