I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience at Carillon Park. We recently got married at the Transportation Center, using the bridge for the ceremony and the patio/building for the cocktail hour/reception. The venue is absolutely stunning; our guests couldn't stop raving about how beautiful and unique the space was. The staff was exceptional. Our coordinator, Kay, was extremely professional and responsive. She patiently listened to each and every request and even accommodated our need to start setting up a little earlier than originally planned. On the day of, the crew during the wedding was immensely accommodating, with the team lead helping me with my dress and frequently asking if I needed another drink. The bartenders were wonderful; several guests commented about how friendly, outgoing, and fun they were. Our entire event was absolutely stunning and this venue allowed me to have the wedding of my dreams. If you're looking for a beautiful and unique venue in Dayton, look no further than Carillon Park!Sent on 07/06/2016

My husband and I truly had the wedding of our dreams at Carillon Park. My family and friends were floored when they saw the venue. They got to walk through a beautiful historical park to get to the ceremony and reception venue (nothing better than the ceremony and reception at the same place. It's so polite to have everything in one spot for your guests. Especially in such a unique venue). We had our ceremony on the Morrison Iron Bridge and then the reception inside the Transportation Center at the end of the elegant spiraled staircase. The staff even gave us the option of opening some of the trains so our guests could walk inside and take memorable photos. My family and friends thought it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. I had strangers commenting on our photos that it looked like a wedding out of a magazine! You truly will not find another venue like Carillon Park.Sent on 06/22/2016
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Alesha Monk, the park's wedding/event coordinator was. Alesha is hands down the best in the business. She is so professional, patient, attentive, kind, and gets things done. She truly made the experience of planning a wedding worry free and fun. My husband and I absolutely owe our day to her. She is phenomenal. Alesha also ran the rehearsal the day before and welcomed everyone to the park with open arms. I was so appreciative and thankful that we were given that time to practice.
I can't thank Carillon Park and Alesha enough. It was the happiest day of our lives. It was beautiful!!!
Time and time again we have been impressed with the staff of Dayton History. Beautiful venues, experienced staff, and a love for what they do makes booking your wedding or event with them an easy choice. Give them a call and you'll see what I mean.
