Nazareth Hall is a historic wedding venue located in Toledo, Ohio. Stationed on 37 acres of manicured grounds, this venue offers a stunningly picturesque natural landscape with views of the Maumee River. The property has a majestic air, with many original features such as stained glass windows and a gorgeous brick facade. Couples who book this venue will enjoy an extensive array of opportunities for one-of-a-kind wedding photos.

Facilities and Capacity

The property offers a stunning selection of ceremony and reception event space. Couples can wed outdoors in a gorgeous stone grotto, situated beside a gently trickling stream. Built in 1927 to be a replica of the renowned pilgrimage site of Lourdes, this space provides a peaceful and serene setting. For couples who would prefer to exchange vows indoors, the site offers a non-denominational chapel. With high beamed ceilings and marble flooring, this chapel offers a delightful mix of rustic and elegance. Nazareth Hall offers three ballrooms of varying sizes, each with their own charm and distinguishing features. The LadyGlen ballroom is the largest space, accommodating up to 300 guests. Couples who are hosting a smaller and more private affair may prefer one of the smaller banquet spaces, such as the Riverview Library. Get-ready rooms are available, including the use of a former classroom, adding a quirky element to wedding-day preparations.

Services Offered

Nazareth Hall can host engagement parties, wedding showers and rehearsal dinners in addition to ceremonies and receptions. Couples who choose to host the momentous day at Nazareth Hall will be provided with an event hostess who will ensure that the event runs smoothly. This includes coordinating the vendors, directing serving staff and attending to the needs of the couple. Culinary needs will be exceeded by the on-site catering team in addition to bar services. The venue also provides couples with a list of preferred vendors, covering services such as photographers, DJs, musicians, florists, and bakers. An ample selection of wedding equipment is included or available to rent.

History

Established in 1927, Nazareth’s Halls originally served as a Catholic boarding school for boys. Run by Nuns of the Ursuline Convent of the Sacred Heart, the nuns were trained to provide the children with a formal education. The land at the time consisted of 400 acres, and boarders were able to practice sports across the expansive grounds, including swimming and rowing. Before shutting its doors to education in 1982, the school instructed over 4,300 boys.

    Great wedding venue

    Nazareth Hall was a great venue to work with. It was really easy to understand what the venue provided and the costs. Bella was a really pleasant and professional Venue Coordinator who answered our questions and was prompt in getting us the information requested. The day of event coordinators were awesome. They helped answer questions and keep things flowing. Our reception was in the Lady Glen ballroom and it was beautiful. We were able to get in there early enough in the day to set up and decorate and the dance floor was the perfect size. We loved having the outdoor patio space too although it ended up being a little bit too hot that day for most of our guests to want to be outside. I definitely recommend Nazareth to anyone who's considering them.

    Classic elegance

    Danielle was a wonderful guide, and we really enjoyed working with her. This is a beautiful venue which has a very classic elegance. Much more affordable than you'd expect from such a beautiful venue.

    Nazareth Hall's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review, Beth! I'm looking forward to working with you and Nick as we plan your special day!

When I think about my favorite wedding venues, one location always comes to mind - Nazareth Hall! It is easily one of the most picturesque spots in NW Ohio, with a surprising and stunning variety of both indoor and outdoor spaces for weddings and receptions. The couples that I have married there have always sung the praises of Abby and her staff, for every aspect of the wedding planning process, and I am always impressed with the individual care and attention that goes into each and every wedding that they host. Any time a couple tells me that they are getting married at Nazareth Hall, I just know that they are going to have an amazing experience.
