This is one of the most exclusive venues in Cincinnati. They only host a handful of weddings on their property each year but each one blows me away with how exquisite the design and execution is.

Laurel Court 

Laurel Court is THE hidden gem in Cincinnati in our opinion. It looks like it could be in the French Countryside. It has an impressive and photogenic front, lush gardens, ivy-colored trellises, an amazing courtyard, and an even more impressive interior. Like Greenacres Art Center, it’s very exclusive and only hosts a handful of wedding events each year. This is an indoor & outdoor venue.
