This space is one of the most popular ceremony spaces within their property. As you go down to the Waterfall, you’ll have a grand entrance by walking down some stairs. Behind you are piles of rocks that surround a small waterfall. 

Apu’s Landing:

There is a beautiful view of the main reception hall, the small pond, and the entire grounds from this ceremony space. A waterfront ceremony in Ohio?! Sign me up!


The Forest is a wonderful ceremony location for you if you love nature. Surrounded by trees and secluded in peacefulness. The sun peeks through the trees can make the lighting beautiful.

The Meadow:

This ceremony option is super pretty! Like the Forest, you’re surrounded by many trees but out in an open space. One of my couples was going to be the first couple to get married in the Meadow, but it ended up raining minutes before their ceremony! Here’s what their set-up looked like, though!

The Terrace is an excellent ceremony option if you’ve got a smaller guest size. You can overlook the pond or be covered under the building in case it rains!
