Hello! We’re Becca and Cooper. We just got married last year at Mohican Gardens. We want to share some of our day so you can see what makes this place so very magical for a wedding.
We knew from the beginning that we wanted to use every space available at Mohican Gardens. They have SO MUCH and it’s all included with the wedding package, so…why not?
Becca got ready in the upstairs of the Century Barn because she really loved the look of the historic post and beam construction. It makes the perfect backdrop for photos, as you can see. Once she was ready, the space was converted into a setting for cocktail hour after the ceremony.
Cooper and the groomsmen spent time in the Conservatory before the ceremony. It was the perfect place for them to get final touches and hang out. Here’s Cooper getting his boutonniere.
The ceremony took place at the pergola overlooking a beautiful lake covered in waterlilies. Late afternoon lighting is best. Plan your ceremony after 4:30 so you aren’t sitting in the sun during the middle of the day! Ours was perfect!
Once the ceremony finished (yay! We’re married!), we gathered with our wedding party and family to take pictures while our guests headed to the barn for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Shout out to our great bartenders (Bowman Beverage), caterer (Cabin Catering & Events), and DJ (Entertaining Ed’s)!
With over 25 acres of rolling farmland and forest, there are lots of places for photos. Make sure your photographer gets there early so they can scope out which spaces are best for the vision you have. We love the outdoors, so that’s the focus of most of our pictures. Whether your style is rustic, elegant, or casual, there are so many options it will make your head spin!
Once we finished with our pictures, everyone headed to the Conservatory for the rest of the evening. We opted for a “family-style” meal, but you can do a buffet as well. We upgraded to champagne-colored tablecloths that are an additional fee, but we loved the look and felt it was worth it. They went so well with the place settings from All Events Rental and the gorgeous centerpieces created by Compattibles Flowers.
Dinner was fantastic—thanks, Char! Our wedding cake (from the Suisse Shop Bakery) was absolutely stunning. We also offered pastries from Pistacia Vera in Columbus. I don’t think there was a single crumb left at the end of the evening. Yum!
We hope you enjoyed sharing a bit about our experience at Mohican Gardens. If you choose to host with them, your day will be as perfect as ours!
