The perfect wedding day begins with
the perfect wedding venue. Washington
County offers a mixed bouquet of lovely
locations for your special day.

If the ceremony is being held in a church,
you might choose the opulent beauty of
the Basilica of the Assumption of St.
Mary or the historic New England style of
First Congregational Church in Marietta.
The area is home to many different
denominations housed in buildings of
diverse sizes and architectural styles.
You’ll surely find one that makes you feel
at home.

For brides who prefer to leave the
planning and hard work to the venue,
Grand Pointe Conference Center in
Vienna, WV, has an expert staff to handle
everything: menu, dance floor, and décor.
They will help navigate the details while
tailoring the event to your personal taste.
The historic Lafayette Hotel in Marietta
is a popular venue with its beautiful
ballroom and riverfront location. The
well-appointed spaces offer beautiful
photo opportunities and visiting guests
can take advantage of the charming
rooms.

One unique option for an outdoor
affair is The Castle, Marietta’s finest
Gothic Revival home. Among the lush
perennials and brick walkways your event
will feel like a Victorian garden party. In
Muskingum Park overlooking the river,
the gazebo is another outdoor option for
a simple ceremony. The City of Marietta
can help with reserving the park and
renting the necessary furnishings. If you’d
like to celebrate on the river itself, the
Valley Gem Sternwheeler is available
for a truly memorable event. You can
enjoy your reception as you glide along
the river and have your ceremony take
place on the boat. The Valley Gem’s
sister sternwheeler, Miss Lily, is available
for private events, with a full service
restaurant to cater your special day.

The lovely Marietta College campus has
hosted many weddings and receptions.
With several spaces available you’ll surely
find one you love. Some couples use
tents for outdoor events while others
prefer more intimate spaces like the
Andrews Hall Great Room. The campus’
catering service can create the perfect
menu for your occasion. The historic
Peoples Bank Theatre is also available
to rent; the opulent space and beautifully
restored facilities will provide a unique
experience and stunning photos.

If you’re using more than one venue, travel
in style between locations with Trolley
Tours or the Hardly Able Carriage Co.
horse drawn carriage. Many couples stop at
the levee or historic sites for photo shoots
against distinctive backdrops.

One of the newest venues in Marietta is the
Elizabeth Sugden Broughton Community
Building, part of the Broughton Nature
and Wildlife Education Area. The building
is beautifully spacious with state-of-the
art facilities, ample parking, and nearby
pavilion. The convenient location is easy
for out of town guests to navigate; outdoor
lovers may even add some al fresco
activities to their day.

For a rustic, laid back atmosphere of a
country farm consider Sweetapple Farm,
located in the rolling hills of Vincent
complete with red barns. Use the barn and
surrounding areas and even let your guests
get close to the animals. Visitors young and
old will have a wonderful day.

Just across the river on Blennerhassett
Island, the Blennerhassett Mansion
creates a dramatic backdrop for ceremonies
and photos. Couples can also choose the
rustic style walnut grove or Point Park
to exchange their vows. Receptions can
be held at one of the two shelters on the
island. Decorations can be as lavish as you
desire or you can let the natural beauty of
the site set the tone. Access to the island is
by ferry. Some couples have their ceremony
performed on board in route to the island.
Whether you take advantage of the hotel,
the island, the ferry, or all three your special
day is guaranteed to be unforgettable.

In Williamstown, West Virginia, the historic
Henderson Hall offers another beautiful
choice for an outdoor event. The incredible
Victorian era Italianate style mansion
boasts 16 perfectly preserved rooms and
overlooks the Ohio River. Your event on
the grounds of this stately home will be
picturesque and memorable. Henderson
Hall even has a trolley to transport
the wedding party. You can have your
ceremony in a local church or other venue
then enjoy an amazing trolley ride to the
grounds for your reception.

Regardless of which venue you choose,
flowers will likely play a starring role. Locally
owned Wildroot Flower Co. can work with
you to create stunning arrangements that
reflect your style. Lyndsay grows all her
own flowers and produces amazing blooms
in a kaleidoscope of colors. She can create
anything from a simple bouquet to a show
stopping arrangement

.

We’ve shared some of our favorite wedding
venues for your special day, but this list is
just the beginning. After you’ve spent time
in Marietta and Washington County, you
may discover your own favorite place to
begin your happily ever after.
