• Best Wedding Venue

    Willow Event Center is an absolutely exquisite space to get married. Our ceremony was held outside under the gazebo and we went inside for the reception. My guests kept gushing over how beautiful the space is, and they were right. From the magnificent willow tree, to the waterfall, to the decked out groom and bride's rooms, every square inch of thus place is a beauty to behold. Drew and his staff made us feel comfortable and he was willing to go far and beyond to make my dream wedding come true. Don't look at any other space, Willow Event Center will meet all of your wedding needs.

  • Beautiful Place!

    Willow Event Center was a beautiful place for our wedding. The outside gazebo suited our ceremony perfectly and the inside reception area is flawless. Drew was very attentive, professional, and so helpful during the whole process. My husband and I couldn't have been happier that we chose Willow Event Center as our venue for our special day.

  • Amazing Wedding!!!

    Drew helped us throw an awesome wedding!!! The venue itself is very nice and has a great outdoor area for pictures. It is a big open space so even with a big guest list and photo booth it felt like plenty of room. Drew made sure the day went according to plan by communicating with our other vendors and making sure each person knew what they should be doing and when. The bartenders were awesome (as well as Drew when he was helping them). All of our guests had a great time and we’ve heard nothing but good things from our guests about the space and the employees. Would definitely recommend having a wedding or reception here!

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    I toured probably every venue in Cincinnati and they were either way over priced or had terrible customer service. I started to give up but decided to tour one last venue and it was Willows Event Center. Not only was the venue perfect, Drew was so nice, helpful and accommodating. Everything went absolutely perfect! I highly recommend touring this venue!! The girls and guys room to get ready in are so cute!!! The dance floor is big and the outside is so pretty for pictures!

  • Don’t Second Guess

    Don’t second guess it....go ahead a book with Drew. I mean he was amazing and made sure our party was a success. He’s very reasonable and will work with you as much as he can. He made my mom’s birthday special and for that I will be forever grateful.

  • Birthday Celebration - 100 Guests

    We had a great time for my 70th birthday party.  My family and friends were amazed at how beautiful the venue was.  It was a pleasure working with you and your staff with all of the arrangements.  I will definitely give you top priority for future engagements, and will recommend you to others!

  • Great Pictures

    Was looking for a new indoor venue due to Cicadas outside and I was absolutely in love with the awesome venue for my son’s surprise graduation party! Great picture locations, great atmosphere, great communication, great pricing. I will go back when I plan for my wedding!

  • Monty Carlo in March

    Drew:  Thanks for providing us with an awesome venue for our Monty Carlo in March. The Willow Event Center is so spacious, light and airy. It was a great space for having room for the  Monty Carlo tables and dinner in one room.   Your big parking lot was easy access for our people.  They love not having to pay to park and the convenience of the closeness to the facility. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated!  I would highly recommend anyone having an event to check out the Willow Event Center out.   Thanks again!

    We had our ceremony and reception at Willow Event Center and it was an absolutely beautiful place! Drew Hester (owner) has done an amazing job creating a gorgeous place for events - not to mention he is incredibly helpful and responsive when it came to planning everything! All our guests were highly complementary of the venue and set up - I would absolutely recommend Willow to anyone looking for event space in Cincinnati!

  • Perfect Venue

    The Willow Event Center is the Perfect venue for a wedding reception. The renovations Drew has made are great! It looks really beautiful on the inside and outside! The deck and willow trees make are a really great place for pictures. Also, Drew has been so accommodating and super helpful with any questions or concerns that my mom and I have had during the wedding planning. Drew has a ton of connections in the wedding industry and will make sure all your needs are taken care of for your big day. I can't wait for our reception in September πŸ™‚

  • Everything You Need!

    A big THANK YOU to Drew at the Willow Event Center. I was working with Drew on a Corporate Event and had stopped by for a walk through, (we have used the location for the same event for the past few years, so I had been there before) as I walked in the doors I was blew away with all the updates and changes Drew had made to the venue. I was there on work, but my mind went to my daughter’s wedding I knew right away this would be perfect location. Drew has been easy to work with providing his input for catering and has been there to help answer any questions with quick response with even the crazy questions. The Willow Event Center has everything you need from a beautiful outside setting to a magnificent indoor reception area with beautiful chandeliers to an open dance floor makes for the perfect location. Thanks Drew!

  • Phenomenal

    Drew has been phenomenal in helping us through our entire planning process. From the first day that we walked into the venue, until now he has been extremely responsive and even reached out to check on us throughout the past couple of months. The renovations and work he has put into creating a beautiful space are amazing. We are so excited for our upcoming ceremony and reception and can’t thank Drew enough for providing us with an incredible space to have it.

  • Breath of Fresh Air

    I initially booked a different venue, but as soon as I saw the Willow Event Center I decided to change all of my plans - something that might seem chaotic for someone in the middle of wedding planning, but after working with Drew it has all been so easy and a breath of fresh air. The venue is at the center of it all - I have guests coming from all over the greater Cincinnati area (from West Chester, OH to Florence, KY and beyond) and the central location in Colerain is absolutely perfect! My favorite feature is the deck/gazebo with beautiful greenery surrounding it. Drew has been so easy to work with and has taken all of the weight off of my shoulders. He even has tons of connections with everyone from caterers to DJs and photographers... I don't know what I was doing before I met him and found this venue, but I know my life has become so much easier and now I will have the wedding of my dreams thanks to him. Definitely check it out - Drew has made so many wonderful updates and changes and has really created a truly beautiful space that you do not want to miss.

  • Surprise Party

    We had a very special surprise 40th anniversary party for our parents here. The place is beautiful and plenty of space. Drew was amazing in helping us with everything. He was so accommodating. I was struggling with some decisions and even knowing what all to have or do and he had great ideas. We absolutely loved the experience and space. We will be using The Willow again.

  • Beautiful Space for Wedding

    I had my wedding here and the space was absolutely beautiful! We had an indoor ceremony and reception with 200 people and felt we had plenty of space for it to run smoothly. Drew was also a huge help through the whole process. He was always responsive and helped me in the planning process as well. Would definitely recommend this place for future weddings and events!

  • Thank you!

    Willow Event Center was the perfect venue for our reception! I have nothing but good things to say about the venue and Drew the venue manager. Drew has made the venue modern and the willow trees in the back by the deck are gorgeous and made the best spot for a first look with my now husband. All the events for the night, dinner, dances, cake cutting etc., ran seamlessly. Drew has many connections in the industry and goes out his way to make sure your event is exactly what you want. Thank you Drew, our day would of not be the same without the Willow Event Center!
