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.

A Barn that Bends Over Backward to Make you Happy!
I've always felt that the owners of Canyon Run Ranch and I are seeing eye-to-eye on creating a remarkable day for the couples. They are always in step with going above and beyond. Every wedding day is different, every couple is different, but Canyon Run Ranch is consistently the same is terms of quality, hospitality, and breath taking beauty.Sent on 10/21/2019

Rustic Barn Hideaway!
Canyon Run Ranch was the perfect place to have our wedding! Amy has been nothing but accommodating and went above and beyond making our day perfect. The Ranch comes alive at night with the beautiful lights! Our family gave endless compliments for Canyon Run Ranch especially for the photo booth named Olive that Amy created. Canyon Run Ranch will not disappoint!Sent on 10/22/2019

The Woods at Canyon Run Ranch's reply:Thank you Pendra! We are always happy to see your SUV drive down the lane - you do a wonderful job providing the soundtrack for our couple's weddings.
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!
