About

Up to 250 guests

The Gahanna Sanctuary is an affordable, non-profit venue located in Gahanna, Ohio. We distinguish ourselves from our competition because we are historic–127 years old in 2022. We are charming and unique, and very affordable for anyone who wants to have an unforgettable event but not break the bank. We're located near the beautiful Creekside area (great for picture taking), with ample free parking, just minutes from I-270, Easton Town Center and The John Glenn Columbus International Airport.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987, our beautiful one-of-a-kind space features gorgeous Tudor stained-glass windows and cathedral ceilings, ambient bistro string lights, an outdoor patio, a large prep kitchen, a spacious private suite for getting ready, and so much more. The Gahanna Sanctuary will add unparalleled charm and character to your event.

Unforgettable moments belong in an extraordinary place.

    Beautiful Venue

    The Gahanna Sanctuary is such a beautiful and historic building. From the stained glass windows to just the historic feel it gives off. I would recommend this to anyone to have their wedding here!

    A beautiful historic venue


    This is a beautiful venue that is worth looking at. The team at the Sanctuary really does try to make you feel special while you are going through booking. This space is great for couples who wish to do things their own way. The sanctuary provides tables and chairs; they have made gorgeous renovations to this 120+ year old building that gives it a certain charm. The stained glass windows are a breathtaking photo backdrop no matter the time of day or season your wedding is in. I am very thankful that we found this space and held our event here. The lit bell tower is a gorgeous change and was heavily commented on and mentioned by our guests.

    Helpful and Beautiful Venue

    After a rocky start to our wedding planning, Gahanna Sanctuary (and Teena, their new director) really helped to make it right! We loved the flexibility of Gahanna Sanctuary and being able to make our own choices for our wedding. They have recently done a lot of updates to the venue that really help it to shine- new carpet, fresh paint, repairs. We loved having our wedding there!
