We had our ceremony at the Wedding Setting in the Withrow Nature Preserve. It couldn't have been more beautiful! It was perfect for a small ceremony (70 people).

The volunteers were so great and helped with everything we needed. Having a house in which to get ready was a great benefit.

Perfect for people who want an outdoor wedding.

The best part about having your wedding at the lakeside lodge,(in Sharon Woods) is the lodge. if you didn't have to participate in their ridiculous lottery to get the place.(all the people you know have to call in from 8-815 one year in advance and vote for you) Or talk to the rude woman who is in charge of setting up the room, you're golden. Because really the place is WONDERFUL, the price was right on, and you get the location from 10am till midnight, which is really really amazing. Plus you are able to bring in all of your own vendors, and I was a BIG fan of my vendors. :)

I would highly recommend using any of the banquet centers for your event. I had my wedding reception at Stonewood Lodge in Sharon Woods, Cincinnati Ohio. The week of the wedding a storm caused most businesses and homes in the area to lose power for a week. The manager contacted me right away to let me know the circumstances. She tracked down two generators and cooked the food at another catering facility so that our reception could go on with out a hitch. Most of our guests did not realize the power was even out. The food was delicious and it turned out to be an amazing night. The staff worked very hard to in the midst of chaos to pull my wedding reception together. I would highly recommend the venue.

A beautiful outdoor setting in Anderson, Ohio. A great value for the cost. You get six hours for approximately $100 an hour. Four volunteers are available during the event to answer questions. It's incredible. You can even get catering through the Park System!

Everyone at Sweetwine was great! The bartender even came out to dance with us at the end of the night! My husband has a rude aunt and uncle. We invited the 2 of them and they brought along 18 extra people. Needless to say we were short a table. THey brought out an extra table, but we were still short a centerpiece. So they went out in their garden and picked similar flowers and placed them in a similar vase. I never noticed, but my mom did and profusely thanked them for it.

We only used the lodge for the reception - not the ceremony. Reserving Lakeside Lodge was pretty easy, but be aware that they do a lottery. I called at 8am exactly 1 year to the day that I wanted to reserve it, and got it easily, so that's what I'd recommend. They were very helpful in answering my questions, but the only thing that was hard on us was that the open houses for us to visit and tour the lodge are held on random Saturday mornings from 8-9:30, so we had to call a lot and find out when we could come in. We were a little nervous that an open house was scheduled for our wedding day because we had a morning wedding and as such our caterer needed to setup at 9 - before the open house ended. Surprisingly, everything went smoothly. They gave us special permission to be in before 10am (and you then have it reserved until midnight). They make it very easy to do the setup. I suggest bringing paper and a ruler/measuring tape to make sure you get the right sized tablecloths when you go to an open house (they have 12 feet long cafeteria style folding tables). We ended up buying regular 54x108in tablecloths for each half of the tables and it worked fine. Also, if you're having a small wedding, this place is the perfect size. We had 60-70 people and there was plenty of room for everyone, but not much of a dance floor. This was fine with us since it was a picnic lunch reception, but if you want room for 100 people or more to eat and dance, definitely get something bigger. All in all, they were very nice and helpful.
