    Absolutely Perfect!

    We had our December 2021 wedding ceremony and reception in the Palm House with our cocktail hour in the Veridian. It was absolutely spectacular and beautiful. We couldn’t have picked a better venue for a winter wedding, allowing our tropical dreams to come together with holiday festivity. The coordination team was fantastic, and we can’t thank Allyson enough for making sure that our day was perfect from start to finish! She helped us along every step of the way to make sure that every detail was covered. There is no better venue or team out there!

    Absolutely beautiful location at an affordable price

    We had our ceremony in the Wolfe Terrace and reception in the Palm House. Our coordinator through FPC was Sarah. She was fantastic, upbeat and made sure our wedding and rehearsal flowed at a great pace. She was involved when necessary and behind the scenes the rest of the time communicating with our team of vendors. Her communication and organization leading up to the wedding was perfect and she was open to helping make all our wishes come true, or find replacements, even when COVID caused Columbus to implement a mask mandate again just a few weeks before our date. We would recommend them to anyone!

    Beautiful location, amazing wedding reception!

    Looking back on our wedding (just one week ago!), my husband and I are so overjoyed we booked the Palm House at the Franklin Park Conservatory for our Wedding Reception. The space is so beautiful and our guests loved it. Our guests had access to the entire conservatory from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm; and our reception finished around 11:30. There was a small fee (~$150.00) to have the butterfly exhibit open as well and it was absolutely worth it. Unfortunately it was cold and raining on the day of our wedding reception and we couldn't use the outdoor terrace space attached to the Palm House. Thankfully, we were able to use the enclosed bonsai-tree garden space instead of the terrace, which is just as lovely. We decided to have our reception catered by the Franklin Park Conservatory and I'm very happy and grateful we did. We threw a "heavy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails" style reception. We primarily worked with Lauren Miller in deciding our reception menu, flow of the evening, what we were going have as passed hors d'oeuvres, what was going to be served as stations, how much to order etc. Lauren was extremely knowledgeable and clearly very experienced in what she does. Lauren was excellent to work with and helped us tremendously in planning our reception. We received many compliments on the food we served and Lauren made sure to set some food aside for my husband and I to ensure we got something to eat. Maria, our wedding co-ordinator, was also very accommodating, easy to communicate and work with and was a tremendous help! I can't say enough good things about our experiencing planning our wedding reception at Franklin Park as well as the actual main event itself. Everything went so smoothly and we are very pleased with the end result!
