So thankful for nationwide!
During the pandemic we heard HORROR stories of other vendors and venues. Nationwide (Jaime and Brittany) were wonderful to work with. I can’t believe how beautiful and perfect our day was. They handled the pandemic like champs and made us feel as safe as possible. They allowed us full access to the patios for us to spread out and enjoy the beautiful weather. We also loved bow ceremony/reception/hotel was all on the same grounds!Sent on 08/06/2020

10/10 Best Wedding Venue!
We cannot recommend the staff at Nationwide Hotel & Conference Center enough. They are exactly who you want for help planning your wedding. We worked the most with Brittany, who was super friendly, and seems a like a friend of mine now after working with us throughout our two year engagement for planning our wedding. She was patient in answering all our questions (we had a LOT) and organized in planning for us. She even provided dates the ballroom was having weddings and allowed us to pop in before the wedding started so we could see how they decorated. Our wedding turned out to be scheduled for during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, and Brittany and Jaime were SO prompt in helping us reschedule - we were able to find a new date that worked for everyone in only a few hours due to their responsiveness. They even adjusted some terms of our contract to be more flexible due to the pandemic. We cannot recommend Nationwide HCC enough and I will keep it in mind for future events!!Sent on 06/27/2020

Edgewater @Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center
The Edgewater Room Nationwide Event staff and Brittany went above and beyond everything we could have hoped for our daughter’s wedding day! The venue was absolutely stunning and so unique! We love that everything was right there on campus. The hotel was amazing and accommodated a lot of our guest. All of our guests are still talking about it! The food and drinks were amazing! The staff is beyond wonderful, Brittany and her whole team was everything you hope for in a wedding team! From the very beginning they were so accommodating, answered all the questions we had and did so in a timely manner, to the day of made sure every detail was perfect! Everything was exceptional and I could not recommend this venue enough! Was so impressed with the fact that any small request I had during the actual wedding day directed to the staff or Brittany herself all were addressed within minutes of me asking for something. They were so professional and obviously were all on board to make the day perfect for the bride and groom. A great big THANK YOU to Edgewater Room @Nationwide Event Hotel Conference Center! They made her wedding day everything we could have dreamed!ISent on 06/13/2019

Wedding Sales Manager
Jaime has over 15 years of hospitality experience at private country clubs, hotels and fine dining restaurants. Her passion and expertise for special events started at an early age. Prior to being at Nationwide Hotel, she was working in Los Angeles at The Riviera Country Club and Specialty Restaurants Corporation. While she was with Specialty Restaurants she received the opportunity to plan a wedding for TLC Channel's new show “My Giant Life”. She has learned that every event is different, every client is the most important and every event deserves endless attention to detail!
Senior Wedding Planner
Brittany has over 10 years of special event experience, with a little extra love for the wedding industry. Although born and raised in the Midwest, she is a southern girl at heart. Upon graduating from The Ohio State University, Brittany moved to Nashville, Tennessee to chase a dream job in her dream town. Soaking in the effortless and soulful etiquette of Music City, she solidified her niche for working with wedding couples and even planned Sony Music’s CMA Awards Afterparty two years in a row. Back in her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, Brittany’s balance of listening, managing client expectation and her ‘as perfect as possible’ event execution is a match made in heaven at NHCC! To Brittany, a little sprinkle of OSU spirit and a touch of southern charm here-n-there never hurts either!
Kristen graduated from Kent State University and has over 10 years experience in the hospitality industry. Prior to being at Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center, she planned events in Washington D.C. She has a strong passion for guiding a client from start to finish and seeing their wedding dreams come true. Her favorite part of a wedding day is revealing the reception space to the newlyweds. Clients have said that Kristen is professional, patient, and easy to work with. When she’s not executing events, you can find her spending time with her husband and her son. In their free time, Kristen and her husband enjoy visiting craft breweries!
This is one of my favorite Columbus venues! The facility is beautiful and constantly being renovated and refreshed. The staff will bend over backward for any of their couples. The food is the best in the city. As if all that wasn't enough, the hotel has a bar on site for late-night celebrations and it's all in one location to ensure your guest are safe and everything is convenient. I can't say enough fantastic things about this venue!
