Yay! It IS possible to find a unique and elegant, private and rustic location for your wedding and reception! Look no further than the brand new Swan Lake Event Center. The long awaited grand opening will be May 2019.
It’s no secret that we love a beautiful venue, and when we contacted the superstar team of Sarah and Olivia to give us a sneak peek, they were gracious enough to offer us a tour.
Swan Lake has been carefully built from the ground up to provide the absolute best location for your once in a lifetime occasion. The attention to detail is amazing. And yes! There is actually a lovely lake, along with 20 wooded acres perfect for photos and memories.
Inside the Main Hall you’ll find a beautiful room with gorgeous floors, windows, a stone fireplace, and tile accents that compliment the gorgeous muted palette. The room is designed to accommodate up to 375 guests for a celebration. Every detail has been carefully chosen, and the overall effect of modern elegance is simply perfect.
When you check out their website or call for your tour (and you DEFINITELY should), be sure to ask about the two detached parlours, perfect for getting ready, and the welcoming Gatehouse! Trust us – you’ll fall in love with Swan Lake.
This wedding reception was absolutely perfect, and elegant, and gorgeous … and FUN!
Erica & Matthew choose to add some fun dance lights, and a big custom monogram to their décor, and it really added to the party. We encourage our couples to share their music preferences with us, and we take those ideas very seriously. Erica & Matthew have good taste in music, and it was a blast playing some different choices for them.
As you can see from this short highlight video, absolutely everyone had a great time, and we had nonstop dancing from start to finish. And doesn’t that monogram look good?
Here are some of their spotlight musical choices. Click the title to hear the song.

Thank you to the beautiful Westin Great Southern Columbus for providing such a perfect and elegant location, and anytime we get to work with our talented friend Clay at Red Gallery, or the wonderful Angela from Red Letter Day Events is a great day!
We had such a good time celebrating with Karli & David. Their wedding reception at Wedgewood Country Club was gorgeous, and elegant, and so much fun.
Dancing for everyone opened up with a giant and crowded circle surrounding the newlyweds. What an incredible memory for all as a room full of friends and family serenaded the newlyweds with Let Me Call You Sweetheart, a family favorite. Everyone loved this, and it was a fantastic way to kick off the huge dance party.
They entered their reception to the classic Frank Sinatra song, Too Marvelous For Words, and the guests loved it!
There was so much dancing… AND singing!
Thanks Karli & David for letting us celebrate with you! We loved it. Thanks to our friends at the beautiful Wedgewood Country Club, and Tessa Maxine photography for being a joy to work with … as usual!
So many photo booths print small, dark pictures in tiny strips. Yuck. It’s enough to make you want to cough up a hair ball. Fizzy Cat only prints big and beautiful 4×6 photos that your guests will cherish and keep. See the difference for yourself.
Below is an example of a typical photo booth strip with dark tiny pictures.
Below is a sample of a big beautiful 4×6 Fizzy Cat print. Purrfect!
Right from the first meeting, we felt a wonderful connection with these two. They were clearly in love, and so much fun, and so perfectly matched … we couldn’t wait to help them celebrate their wedding day.
Angela and Chaz wanted a celebration of friends and family that felt like a party, with an end goal of everyone having THE BEST time. Mother nature clearly approved, because the weather was perfect from start to finish! Such a fantastic day.
BONUS: Angela + Chaz are also incredibly talented photographers, who are blowing people away with their gorgeous wedding photography, warm personalities, and sense of style and moment. The sweet story of how they named their company Photo 243 is shared on their website. Click their logo below and check it out!
A few details of the day:
♦ A relative played guitar for their ceremony, while the guests passed the wedding rings from person to person as a way to wish love to the bride and groom before they put them on. So sweet.
♦ Yard games were set up outside for guests to enjoy while socializing, and this was a big hit.
♦ After dinner, and while a few tables were being moved for the dance party, we had some fun with Angela + Chaz with a short version of The Shoelywed Game! The guests LOVED this.
♦ And the evening ended with a sparkler send off. Check out this video!

After settling down in San Francisco, Christine and Laurie came back to Columbus to get married, and to throw a great party. We were so excited to be a part of their celebration at the beautiful Wells Barn. Of course, Fizzy Cat loved all of the “playtime”!
We are so excited by all of the updates and changes at The Ohio State University Fawcett Center, and we know you will be, too. Brand new chairs, carpet, décor … brand new EVERYTHING. It’s gorgeous!
The Fawcett Center has everything you could want for your wedding celebration, including plenty of indoor and outdoor space to entertain your guests for the ceremony, cocktails, dinner and dancing. We especially loved the new “Club” space, which would be perfects for cocktails, and the gorgeous built in LED lighting features in The Ballroom designed to offer a hint or more of your custom color!
If you or your guests happen to be OSU Buckeye fans, the photos and memorabilia in the halls and lobby area are incredible. And where else can you have a photo taken with a golden Brutus Buckeye?
The delightful Nicole Ewing wears lots of hats as the Executive Event Planner, and also the Wedding and Social Event Coordinator. She will work to really get to know you. The fact that she is also a newlywed; you will feel like you’re talking with someone who really “gets you”. Nicole will absolutely go out of her way to help you plan a perfect wedding or event!
You should definitely check out this beautiful venue.
You and your guests will love it!
We are still thinking about this perfectly crafted wedding celebration with Lisa and Austin. They did not forget a detail to add to their guests comfort or fun. And we loved the look of our dance lights swirling throughout the room once the party really kicked in. Can we please do it all again?
