Best Venue in all of Columbus!!!

After mentally choosing a very different venue, my husband and I last minute toured Strongwater after coming across some photos on the ColumbusWedding Instagram hashtag, and after finishing we just turned to each other and said "this is it." We cannot say enough good things about Strongwater - the staff is so friendly and also on top of everything, the venue is perfect for couples wanting an industrial vibe, and the food & drinks are simply the best. When we told our other vendors we were getting married here they all said "oh Strongwater is the best, you're in great hands" and they weren't wrong. Our day went by so smoothly (at least as far as we knew) because of Naomi and the rest of the staff, guests couldn't stop telling us how good dinner and the cocktails were, and the whole place was just beautiful. If you want a low-stress, industrial venue to have an amazing party, this is the place!!!

Beautiful Space, Above and Beyond Staff

We knew right away we wanted Strongwater for our venue just for the aesthetic, but the staff made our day what it was. We had Beth as our day of coordinator and she was AMAZING. We had so many ridiculous requests, from bringing our dogs to bringing our motorcycles. She not only made everything easy and seamless but she made it seem easy. Neither my husband or I stressed about a thing once Beth was on it.

We also did our catering through Strongwater with Marianne as the chef. Her food was to die for and weeks after the wedding, our guests are still bringing it up.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to host our wedding!
