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!

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 :)

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.

The Marcum Conference Center is a very beautiful facility inside and out. The reception rooms are very elegant with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, and the outside grounds and gardens are stunning with beautiful scenic backdrops for pictures. The staff is very professional and have many resources they can utilize to accommodate your needs. My wife and I would like to thank Ms. Jane Gaitskill for all her help in making our wedding and reception a very memorable and special day. She is very organized, professional, and will make nearly anything you desire come true. The Kumler Chapel is considered one of the most beautiful places you will ever see. It sits in a picturesque historic part of the Miami University campus and has an outstanding newly restored pipe organ that will give your wedding a step above all your expectations. Everything that is needed to make your wedding tasteful and memorable is at one place.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Miami University and the Marcum Center. We worked with Jane, and she was great to work with. She was very helpful in organizing everything - she met with us frequently and was flexible in terms of when to meet. She did a great job of communicating with us and was very prompt in responding to any of our questions.

We used the Sesquicentennial Chapel. It was very clean. We asked that they tune the piano prior to our ceremony and they took care of it. It was a beautiful setting for our pictures.

The reception was great. We had a cocktail hour prior to dinner, and the only hiccup all night was that we were short a bartender, which led to a long line at the bar. However, they were quick to get a second person in there (I didn't even notice the issue until I was told about it later), and they refunded us the cost of that bartender for the entire night.

The food was amazing - we had quite a few people comment that it was the best wedding food they ever had. Everything went very smoothly - the transitions were easy, there were no long gaps between courses, and they did a great job of keeping wine glasses full. We had an amazing reception thanks to the great job of the staff at Marcum!
