The Best Columbus Ohio
Wedding Venues

As Photographer I try to get across to my clients that venue is THE MOST IMPORTANT for your wedding photography. If you have no where to do photos and you are not planning on going somewhere for photos there really is only so much that your photographer can do. In Ohio, it really matters. The Following are MY favorite and in my view the best Columbus Ohio Wedding Venues that offer the best Photo opportunity. 

Here are some reasons on why your wedding venue matters so much.

1. What is in the background? Are there corn fields and parking lots in every direction? 
2. If you plan on doing photos at different points of the day then you need to consider both sides of the venue. One part of the venue will be in high harsh sun , so you will need the other side to have nice places for photos as well. If not then you will need to plan around the sun.
3. Where is there to get ready? More than half of all venues do not have good spots for the bride and groom to get ready. Windows and natural light are SO important.

Franklin Park Botanical Gardens is THE Best Ohio Wedding Venue for all year around weddings. The Palm room is a tropical paradise that makes you feel like you are in the tropics. The ceiling is glass which allows for beautiful lighting, and being inside, allows for the perfect spot for our cold months in Ohio. There is also the Desert room if you want a Colorado Arizona Vibe.
