About

On WeddingWire since 2017

Historic Onesto Event Center is an upscale wedding venue located in Canton, Ohio. The 12-story hotel was originally built in 1930 by the hotelier Francis A. Onesto, and it was the premier destination for travelers to Canton. After standing empty for 35 years, the building was lovingly renovated in 2014 and reopened as a venue and loft apartments. The property now combines the best of old-world charm and elegance with modern and convenient amenities. It welcomes couples into its event spaces to celebrate the most romantic day of their lives surrounded by luxury.

Facilities and Capacity

Upon entering the Historic Onesto Event Center, visitors will first ascend the Travertine marble staircase to the impressive lobby. This breathtaking entranceway boasts terrazzo flooring, marble walls and benches, American walnut woodwork, large windows, and cathedral ceilings with Italian Renaissance ornamental relief. Complete with a bar and seating area, this beautiful hall is ideal for socializing with guests, enjoying cake, and hosting a cocktail hour. From here, guests will find the Grand Ballroom, which features maple and mahogany hardwood floors and a sparkling chandelier. Accommodating up to 250 guests for dinner and dancing, this room is ideal for celebrations both large and small. For ceremonies, couples are welcome to use the Old Stone Chapel, situated just down the street. This stunning chapel is replete with marble walkways, stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, and polished stone floors.

Services Offered

Packages at the Historic Onesto Event Center include a pre-tour meeting during which a wedding planner will sit down with couples to discuss their visions. During this consultation, the coordinator will review budgets, traditions, and expectations for the big day. Afterward, the soon-to-be-newlyweds can tour the storied facility, while the wedding planner will make vendor recommendations and help organize the event. Unlike other venues, this center does not need much in the way of décor, as it comes with chic and ornate accents already built in. A ceremony rehearsal will be provided, and on the day of, the staff will manage guest arrivals and coordinate pickup and dropoff times with vendors. Their goal is to create an experience where the newlyweds can savor their joyful, relaxing, and stress-free day of love.

Life changing

This was not just a venue, but an experience of a lifetime. We could not be more grateful for Jerrica, who became like family to us, and Lynae who took the best care of us from start to finish. We are also so thankful for everyone on the team that helped make our dream come true. We had our ceremony and reception there which was perfect for us and our guests. The venue itself is breath taking. We did bring decorations, a flower wall, and they helped set up our vendors to take the stress off us. I can't say enough how amazing our experience was and how much our guests loved it too. We truly had the most special day of our lives and it would not have been accomplished without the Onesto and the incredible staff!

The BEST Choice

It is easy to see from the photos how beautiful the Onesto and Old Stone Chapel are. But, what you don’t see is the brilliant and amazing staff behind these gorgeous venues!

From our first tour of the venue to our wedding day Lynae, Jerrica, and Heidi put us at ease and simplified everything along the way. We toured different venues but the Onesto staff is in a league of their own- their professionalism, accommodating and flexible personalities, ability to jump in and assist when needed, and all hands on deck attitude is what separates them from the rest. They went above and beyond to help us on our wedding day! Heidi saved our first dance, Jerrica decorated our wedding cake with flowers SO beautifully, and Lynae even pinned boutonnières and helped with flowers. I could go on and on about why this team is so fabulous! Rest assured you will have the most beautiful wedding day with these ladies by your side!

We are so happy with our choice and would choose the Onesto & Old Stone over and over again in a heartbeat!

Incredible!

I don't think we will ever be able to put into words how happy we were with the Historic Onesto Event Center. Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful, the staff is to die for. SO accomodating, so understanding, & most of all, so encouraging. Jerrica eased my stress & anxieties in ways that she probably doesn't even know about, but her heart is what stood out from the rest. As soon as Corey & I stepped foot into the venue, we knew it was where we were meant to be married. And once meeting Jerrica, I knew that she would have my back until the day of, & I was not wrong. Every single part of our wedding day went smoothly, with limited stress, outside of the normal nerves. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place, or people, to celebrate the most memorable moment of our lives. We would recommend this venue to anyone & everyone 💛
