Best all inclusive venue in columbus!
Planning a wedding around Covid-19 was not easy, but Brittany and the event staff did an excellent job with our wedding October 2nd 2020. We felt like absolute royalty and our guests felt very comfortable with all of the precautions taken by Nationwide to keep everyone safe and healthy. Beautiful venue, kind and gracious staff, amazing food, and an event planner who went above and beyond at every step.Sent on 11/08/2020

Nationwide was the perfect place for our special day! Brittany was our coordinator and was very timely in responses answering all of our questions (& my mother in law had ALOT!) We had both ceremony and reception here which was perfect for our guests not traveling between events. Every guest we talked to said the food was incredible! & The campus is beautiful for pictures!Sent on 10/14/2020

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

Team of Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center
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!
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!
