Lisa, Bryan and their entire team at Nationwide are outstanding. So many times we have to be cautious not to confuse the expectations set during the "sale" with the "implementation" or this case the total quality orchestration of pre-reception, reception event and post-reception performance.
NHCC's team is clearly a "quality team" and it could be no other way since it took a team to delivery such an outstanding wedding reception for our families and the 160 persons served. NHCC hit on every aspect of performance - preparation, execution, service professionalism, focus on the customer (bride/groom, parents and all guests) and the food was outstanding, in fact the chef/team, facility venue, management and service team (including hotel and onsite pub team) all received rave reviews from each and every one of our guests that took time to comment, and there were many, many guest comments of praise for Nationwide.
Chef and team served one of the best meals and also wedding meals our family has ever seen. And we have had over 50 weddings between our families over the years. Great job! We were in the Grand Ballroom and it was beautiful, but so are ll the other NHCC reception venues. Ours was a New Year's Eve wedding and that made it all the more special.
We would highly recommend NHCC to any bride/groom and families. We received optimum value for our investment. We will return for sure!

We got married at the NHCC in September with 160 people in attendance. (On the Tennessee Lawn -- Reception was in the North Pointe Ballroom) and Oh. My. Goodness. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue. First off, Bryan was our initial contact. He was transparent and totally not pushy when giving us a tour of the place. Kristen was our event manager and she was a saint. I cannot imagine going through the weekend without her! She was patient and chill, and helped us through every decision and detail. The venue, of course, was gorgeous, and the food was amazing. (The beef filet practically melts in your mouth!!) To everyone who made that day happen: THANK YOU! The day was absolutely, 100% perfect, and I would not change a single thing.

One of my favorite venues, they have several rooms/options to chose from and an on-site bar for post reception parties that carry over.
Nationwide Hotel by far has one of the most beautifully landscaped exteriors in Columbus, offering many perfect outdoor photo opportunities. We have had the opportunity to provide flowers for many weddings there, and have always had a pleasant experience. They are flexible with delivery schedules and set up, making it very convenient for vendors and customers. As a florist, I often get to see the insides of kitchens, and I can say that Nationwide's kitchen is much cleaner than the others I've seen. Their Edgewater room has wonderful natural lighting, and because they are also a hotel, it makes for a convenient situation where brides can get ready there and guests can stay the night. The staff and event coordinators are top notch, extremely organized, and care to make sure every couple is well served. I haven't had a single bride have anything negative to say about this beautiful venue.
Amazing venue for a Wedding! From their hospitality to wide selection of event spaces, you will fall in love when you see the space. Ryan is great to work with over there and brings the upmost professionalism for every event. Did I mention they also have a hotel? Can't beat that!
