There are many beautiful wedding venues in the Cincinnati area, but there’s just something about these historical wedding venues that adds a classic touch, effortless romance and timeless joy to your wedding day. Hope you enjoy this small peek into one of my favorite historical wedding venues.
“The venue is absolutely stunning. From the moment the guests arrived, they were in awe of the beautiful setting. The staff are very courteous, professional and made sure everything was just right. It was perfect for our daughter’s wedding.” The Knot Review, Wedding 10/5/2018
”The place to host your wedding. Go down the beautiful drive and be transported to the most beautiful European estate. There is no other place like it in the state. Absolute perfection!”

-Plenty of space for both bride and groom to have their separate areas so they don’t see each other beforehand.
Bustles often break, so ask for a French “under” bustle vs. an American “over” bustle if you like to dance and want to avoid carrying your dress over your arm all night.
Before mailing, assign a number to each response card that corresponds with an actual guest…then write that number on the back of each response card – people sometimes send blank RSVP’s and these numbers prevent “mystery” guests.
Ask your florist to label your “personal flowers” (bouquets, corsages & boutonnieres) with actual names of recipients to avoid confusion before the ceremony when they are distributed.
Originally called Winding Creek Farm, the Fleishmann family built the property in the mid 1920’s. The Fleishmann’s resided on the property until around the late 80’s. It then sat vacant for quite some time and was eventually purchased by our founder Louise Nippert in 1998 with repairs taking until 2007. At this point, it was renamed the Greenacres Arts Center because of its use as a hands on arts education center for local school children to visit during weekdays throughout the school year. It is also a host to summer camps and various special events throughout the year. On weekends the venue is used for weddings, fundraisers and other private events.
Our Indian Hill campus is 602 acres. We recently expanded into Brown County with another 400+ acres for research and education.
They host 10-12 wedding rentals each year.
The Grand Tent is available for rental on weekends May 1 – October 31 each year. If you have a smaller wedding party and would like an indoor wedding, the Arts Center (house) is available year round.
400 people can fit inside the tent during an event but we recommend a maximum of 350 if you are planning on having a stage and dance floor.
