Beautiful Wedding Day at the OSU Faculty Club

Kendra and her team at the OSU Faculty Club were amazing! They were so professional, responsive, and made our wedding visions come to life. Our guests told us how nice everyone on staff was. We appreciated that the Faculty Club makes delicious food and beverages, so we didn't have to coordinate any outside catering.

The venue itself is beautiful, situated on OSU campus, right by Mirror Lake and the South Oval. We had access to all three floors of the Club and a lovely patio outside. This is a wonderful wedding venue, if you're an OSU buckeye or not!

Beautiful Vendor Worth Every Penny

Our wedding experience at the OSU Faculty Club was everything that we could ask for. They were flexible, patient, and professional as we had our wedding experience. Our wedding started late but they made sure that every special moment occurred. The food was delicious. I could not have asked for a better experience.
