    The venue was absolutely beautiful and the people there are so helpful. The events coordinator was a God send for me. She was with me every step of the way.

    When my now husband proposed in December 2016, we had absolutely no idea what we were looking for in a venue. We knew we wanted a summer 2017 wedding, if possible, and went to at least 10 different venues. Big, small, indoor, outdoor... you name it. When we found The Blackwell, it just felt like everything clicked for us. For starters, Madison Martin is worth her weight in GOLD. She is hands down the best asset and perk to hosting your wedding at The Blackwell! She held my hand every step of the way, and helped me with every decision. She connected me to the majority of my vendors as well, all of whom I loved. We also absolutely loved having our ceremony, reception, and hotel block all in the same place. This was a HUGE perk for us! The Blackwell made everything effortless. They listened to every detail, and gave us the wedding of our dreams. From decor to the amazing food, you absolutely cannot go wrong at the Blackwell!

  • Devoted Columbus Wedding Planners

    This is a beautiful venue. Love the ballroom and the terrace! But lets talk food - they have such a creative chef that wants to really learn about the bride and groom in order to create the best memorable and customized menus you will ever get! I wanted to have an event just so he would create one for me! Jaime is such a pleasure to work with - staff incredible - I can't rave enough!

  • Bloomtastic Florist Wedding Florists

    We have had the pleasure of designing several weddings at the Blackwell. I always look forward to going there! The staff is friendly and helpful and the ambiance is inviting. I love the outdoor area--it's private and intimate. It looks great with or without the tent! And you can have Brutus at your wedding...nothing beats that!

  • EXCEL DESIGN GROUP Wedding Decor & Lighting

    Enjoyed working at this beautiful venue. Staff was very professional and accommodating.
