Testimonials from Past Clients


“Having my wedding at the Groesbeck Estate last October was the best decision I ever had, and I can't recommend it enough. Amazing intimate location nestled away with breathtaking views of the surrounding forest!” The inside of the Estate was restored with a great bridal suite that allowed for a lot of natural light in. I had always wanted to get married outside during in October but with the way Cincinnati weather can be unpredictable, I needed a venue that would allow for me to have a weather safety net if needed - which the Estate did have by having an all weather tent up on the back-terrace. I could not have had a perfect wedding day if it wasn't for Julie, the Rental and Event Manager. Julie was absolutely amazing to work with and was so helpful the entire way through. She was easygoing and professional from the start, and had always made us feel like a priority even though I knew she was handling a lot of other couples at the same time! I would recommend the Groesbeck Estate to any couple looking for a beautiful venue to celebrate their big day or or anyone searching for a venue for a special event.

The Groesbeck Estate at the Cincinnati Nature Center was the PERFECT place to host our special day. Tucked away in the outskirts of Cincinnati, the Groesbeck Estate provides a private, yet centralized location within minutes from multiple hotel options. “Accompanied by the Pillar Gardens, the Groesbeck Estate provided us with a beautiful backdrop for the outdoor wedding of our dreams at one centralized location. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience, the staff was wonderful and the venue was beautiful.” I would recommend Groesbeck to anyone looking for a wedding venue for their big day!

“Krippendorf lodge was perfect! It was exactly what I was looking for. It was such a unique and romantic location. The catering provided by the lodge was exceptional, all the food was amazing, not traditional boring wedding food.”
