From the second I saw the space at The Center I knew that we had to have our ceremony and wedding there. The team at The Center was fabulous to work with - they dealt with my need to know every detail and was extremely responsive to questions and concerns. We were able to visit the space throughout our engagement and when it came to the big day NOTHING was overlooked by their staff.

Our family and friends were blown away by the beauty of the space and how it really is a hidden gem in the center of Cincinnati. The staff the day of our wedding pitched in and helped all the vendors and we did the ceremony and reception in the same room so there was a room flip - it went so well and the room was transformed into a ballroom.

Be aware that you will need to rent EVERYTHING except tables and chairs (linens, dishes, draping, etc) - so make sure you have an idea of those costs. You can shop around but it is still extra work as well.

The staff is absolutely wonderful to work with and very responsive to emails and phone calls. They went above and beyond before, during and after the reception. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding, corporate or social event. The space is a blank canvas that can be dressed up or left as is for an elegant, fun event. Fabulous - 5 stars!!

Maliah, you are an absolute doll! We loved working with both you and Cory! Your décor was adorable and we were so impressed with all of the DIY pieces. You were able to take our space and to turn it into something that reflected the style of such an amazing couple. We're wishing you many years of happiness.

My husband and I took our time in really trying to find a venue. We kept running into the pre-chosen vendors and you can only have this and that. We ended up coming back to the Centre every time. We loved how we could put our own chosen vendors there and how amazing the space was. There were lots of options on setup and we were able to make it what we had envisioned.

The staff was great (as stated in other reviews there were frequent changes made in the staff, but they were always knowledgeable). They were super helpful in making our vision come true and they made it really easy for our vendors to setup & operate.

The space overall is very unique and you won't find anywhere around the tri-state like it. We are very glad we chose them and you really can't go wrong with this space.

Thank you so much girls for all your help!!

Wow! What more could a couple ask for when looking for a wedding venue! The team is amazing to work with and are casual but very professional. The best part is that it has beautiful hardwood floors and a blank canvas to make dreams come true, not to mention a prime location in the center of downtown Cincinnati overlooking fountain square! Their alcohol is incredibly reasonable for top shelf choices, and we loved that we could choose our own vendors and not select from a list. We were able to hang chandeliers and lighting options that transformed the space into our dream wedding. You WONT be disappointed if you choose The Center for your big day - we weren't! For the price and what you get, it's Cincinnati's hidden gem!

Tonya,
You were an absolute delight to work with! We loved working with you from your first tour to the day when you and John celebrated the love you have for each other. Your reception defined what The Center is all about -- taking a blank canvas and turning it into a beautiful setting that reflects you both as a couple. In other words, The Center looked gorgeous and we are honored to have been chosen for your big day! Wishing you both a life full of happiness and love.

My husband and I got married at the center in June. We could not have been happier with how the venue and everything turned out. This is such a beautiful space and gives you the flexibility to make it your own. The staff was also very very helpful and responsive. They helped in so many ways along the way. Definitely recommend this space and all the positives that come along with it!!
