As Miami Mergers our wedding day in Oxford was perfect from start to finish. Of course, this perfect day was months in the making thanks to the fantastic crew at Carillon Catering, most notably Neila Hanges. We live in Nashville, Tennessee, so Neila helped us through every aspect of the event planning process from assisting us with floor diagrams, providing us with vendor recommendations, and even whipping together a phenomenal Miami Mergers rehearsal dinner cake at the last minute.

Our wedding ceremony took place at Kumler Chapel, and our guests had nothing but positive compliments. The chapel was beautiful, and the newly installed air conditioning was a huge plus! We did not decorate the chapel in any capacity, and I think it looked absolutely lovely. The stained glass, ornate woodwork and arched ceilings looked lovely as is -- our photographs reflect that.

Following the ceremony, we hosted a cocktail hour and reception at the Armstrong Student Center. I cannot compliment the event staff enough. Unlike other venues we looked at, Miami was so transparent about charges and mysterious fees. The event staff set up all of our rented tables and wedding decorations at no charge. They coordinated with our other vendors including the florist, DJ, and chair rental company. What can I say about the Armstrong Student Center that hasn't been said? It was absolutely beautiful and again, needed minimal decorations. Food was delicious, and the prices were extremely competitive with other venues. Compared to anywhere else in Oxford, ASC was an absolute steal and by far the best space!

We had the misfortune of having an MIA DJ (Great Day Productions - don't use). Luckily, the Armstrong Student Center staff was quick on their feet to help us with a Plan B.

My only complaint was the lighting situation. It seemed as though the only settings were extremely bright lights, stadium lighting, or no lights. Hopefully that's being worked out!

The Marcum staff was really great to work with for our reception. Their hotel room blocks got a little tricky and it seemed like their staff struggled with the system for those reservations but it all ended up working out in the end. All the staff is very friendly and incredibly helpful. The weekend of the wedding the coordinator would meet with us in our personal hotel rooms so we wouldn't have to run around the hotel! They walked through everything with us as many times as we wanted and went out of their way to make all of our guests feel welcome. Dinner service was a little slow as they were low on available servers as it was a holiday weekend but the food was fabulous and everything went off without a hitch! Although it's one of the smaller venues on campus every event I've been to there (I attend alumni events held there) has always been top notch and far exceeds some of the other available options in town.
As an out of town bride they made things as easy as possible for my family and I by requiring minimal in person meetings prior to the wedding.
They set up a perfect spot for my bridesmaids and I to get ready that morning as well as let us in to each hotel room to provide welcome bags for our guests.
I highly recommend the Marcum and their fabulous staff!

While Kumler Chapel is difficult to book in the summer (and the process is a bit complicated!), Jane is a breeze to work with and the chapel is beautiful and affordable. A must-have for Miami Mergers!

Kumler was a beautiful site for our wedding ceremony and convenient for our guests! It provided a great backdrop for pictures and added to the overall elegance of our big day. You pretty much have to book 12 months in advance to get your desired date, but working with Jane at Miami University to book the chapel and coordinate the event was a breeze and helped get our wedding planning process off to a great start.

Jane was wonderful to work with. I do suggest to future brides to ask the following question: 1. Will parking for our guests be accommodated for our rehearsal on Friday evening? I completely forgot how literally every street on campus requires a parking permit. Luckily we found a parking attendant and let him know that we were there for a wedding rehearsal and to please not ticket us lol The Sesquicentennial Chapel is absolutely gorgeous. Guests kept saying how "intimate" the ceremony felt, and I credit a part of that to this chapel. It really was gorgeous. I do wish Jane would have been able to pop up at the rehearsal or even the ceremony, but that's largely because I wanted to thank her for everything in person :)

Our wedding was at Kumler Chapel September 29, 2012, it was SO GORGEOUS and made this Bride's fairytale wedding dreams come true. Our pictures were amazing with this beautiful stone chapel in the background! Couldn't have had a better place to say "I DO"!

We used the Marcum Center as well as the Formal Gardens and the Miami Inn. All three were perfect. They were able to reserve that garden for our ceremony which was wonderful. We were also able to use rooms in both the Inn and the Marcum Center for the wedding party to get ready in.

We didn't use the Marcum Conference Center, but we did use the Sesquicentennial Chapel to get married in. The process was easy, and we had plenty of time for rehearsal, and it was conveniently air conditioned. We had about 160 people attending, and with that number, the pews looked perfectly full and everyone had a seat.

My experience working with Jane and the Marcum Conference Center was extremely positive. I wasn't sure what to expect with having dinner and dancing in two separate rooms, but it worked out very well and I have no complaints on having to change rooms. Jane answered all of my many many questions thoroughly and timely. We did not do a tasting, but the two meals we ended up picking from the menu were amazing. The staff that helped the day of made sure everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The only thing I would have found to be more helpful would to have had an FAQ in the planning process and the decor of the rooms might be a draw back for some brides since the decorations/wallpaper/carpet are not the most contemporary. I would recommend this facility to any bride since the staff helped to make my reception a huge success.
