Canyon Run Ranch is the venue for couples seeking the perfect outdoor wedding with everything Ohio has to offer: an enchanted ceremony site in a shaded forest clearing, an authentic American barn, acres of native wildflowers, the gentle sound of a creek and cascading waterfalls, and a large bonfire at the end of the night.
Canyon Run Ranch is private, located on 153 acres of the scenic Stillwater River Valley with views to savor and enjoy on your wedding day and unlimited options for gorgeous photos and videos that can't be created anywhere else.
There are over 40 acres of wildflowers planted to attract bees, butterflies and birds and to provide a pleasant walk for guests headed to the ceremony site in the woods.
Amid the 82 acres of wooded hillsides is a secluded clearing on a ridge with a whimsical corkscrew willow arbor that appears to have been created by woodland fairies. Guests sit on benches made from local ash trees and enjoy the ceremony serenaded by resident birds and wind blowing through the hardwoods, which provide a leafy canopy overhead.
An authentic, pre-1850 bank barn welcomes guests with large curtains at the opening and the Milk Parlor below for cocktail hour. The Milk Parlor's original, hand-hewn beams and bark-covered ceiling joists are complemented by rustic, mismatched metal seating and lighting crafted from salvaged pulleys of wood and metal. The main reception area of the barn is lit with thousands of twinkle lights woven through the beams and balanced by two mason jar chandeliers built from antique wagon wheels found on the property. Beams of light peak through the spaces between the original wood siding, casting a warm glow on the wood floors built from trees sustainably harvested from the nearby woods.
The home on the hill was built from the stone of the Canyon Run creek and overlooks the barn. The original home, built in 1900, is available for dressing and preparing for the day.
Canyon Run strives to be sustainable by using wood from fallen trees, rocks from the Canyon Run creek, and other found and local materials whenever possible. Proceeds from the weddings go to the restoration, beautification, and maintenance of the natural habitat and to protect waterways and wetlands. We discourage single-use plastics and provide many decorative items that can reused by others.

The perfect venue
We had our wedding at Canyon Run Ranch 10/20/18. It was truly a "fairytale” wedding and everything I had ever dreamed of! Amy (the proprietor) and her crew were so wonderful to help do everything to make the day as perfect as possible. If you are a fan of the outdoors, and rustic style weddings, you have found the place for you. Once you step foot on the grounds, I have no doubt your search will be over. Amy was very professional during the entire process. She is very responsive to all messages and accommodating with any questions or requests that you may have. She made the entire booking, organization, and execution of the wedding so easy and stress free. She is also very helpful in coordinating with vendors. Her staff is very flexible, helpful, and professional as well. Amy and her crew are very helpful and sensitive to the needs of the guests. Golf carts and closer parking are available for use for more delicate guests. Amy also has a significant amount of tables/decorations such as wood log slices that are available for use as decorations. The bridal party was able to get ready in The Ward’s beautiful, stately stone home, where the groomsmen got dressed in a separate part of the barn. The rustic barn itself is breathtaking; as beautiful as pictures of it are, nothing could do it justice to the magic it holds when you step inside. After a trip along wildflower fields and entering the woods, a winding path leads you to the ceremony site, which may be one of the most stunning parts of the entire property. A twisting willow arbor awaits you at the end of a path lined with wooden benches, covered in picturesque trees. The entire property is a photographers dream. You will not find a shortage of places to take amazing photos, with a variety of choices, from their wildflower fields, woods, quaint flower garden, even a stream during certain seasons. The bartending services and Emcee services performed by Craft Event Bar was excellent, enthusiastic, easy to work with, and once again, very professional.Sent on 01/31/2019

A Dream Come True!
My husband and I were married at Canyon Run Ranch on 10-13-2018 and wish we could rewind and go back to this magical place. We were blown away by our overall experience. This gorgeous location is better than any place we could have imagined. Without question, Canyon Run Ranch gives you a truly intimate feel, along with feeling as if you are completely off the map, which is more than enough to make you never want to leave. Not to mention the owners, Amy and Gary, who were beyond delightful and nothing but helpful and accommodating. Amy even provided us with recommendations for different vendors, a handful of which we hired (whom we LOVE!) and offered such hospitality and warmth each time we visited for a walk-through. Amy was always ready and willing to answer any and every question we had during our nearly 2-year planning process and she was always quick to reply! On the day of the wedding, we had use of a beautiful bridal suite at one end of their home on the property. It was tranquil and just what was needed before the true hustle and bustle started!Sent on 10/29/2018
Canyon Run Ranch played a huge part in the success of our weekend and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that.
Amy and Gary, thank you for everything! It was a privilege and an honor to work with you and make our wedding day a dream come true!

We absolutely loved our wedding at Canyon Run Ranch in August. I am a huge worrier and thought about every single thing that could go wrong, however on the day of our wedding I couldn't find anything to worry about!Sent on 09/30/2018
Aesthetic - the structures and land at Canyon Run Ranch are absolutely beautiful in every season. If you don't want to spend a ton of money on decorating, this is a great option for you. Also, don't be worried about it feeling too "country" if that's not what you're going for.
Owners - Amy was so helpful on the day of the wedding as well as being responsive to emails in the months leading up to the wedding. I really wanted to hang cascading paper flowers and she took my vision a step further by artistically hanging the strands I had made from a branch. She also took it upon herself to put flowers on the arch when we noticed the florist had not.
Considerations - It's great that they provide golf carts for guests to use as it would have been very difficult for our grandparents to get around. Do keep this in mind as there is a stretch in the woods to the ceremony site that the golf carts don't go. Also, because of the big property I would suggest at least a day of coordinator to make things go smoothly.
Guest Reviews - Our guests had a wonderful time. We received so many compliments about how "idyllic" our venue was.
THE BARN AT CANYON RUN RANCH's reply:
I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding on 7/8/2017 at Canyon Run Ranch and it was absolutely amazing! The owners were incredibly helpful, personable, and the whole 123 acre venue is insanely gorgeous! I definitely hope to work with CRR again soon.
This is a beautiful venue located in Ohio. One of the nicest ranch venues we have seen with the ceremony nestled in the woods. Everything in one location. Your friends and family will not have to go from venue to venue for the ceremony and reception. This gives you more time to enjoy with with your friends and family instead of spending the day driving.
I have had the pleasure of being the DJ at Canyon Run Ranch on multiple occasions. Everyone that works there is always in a great mood and they are so easy to work with. Anyone looking for a beautiful, rustic, barn wedding, look no further. This is an amazing farm, with equally amazing people to host your event!
