  • Beautiful    posted 10/16/2013

    The name of the venue says it all! It is beautiful and you don't need many decorations because it speaks for itself. I got married this past weekend and had the best wedding a girl could ever dream of, and on top of it the weather was perfect! The staff is amazing. Joy and Shauna did a great job making sure my wedding went perfect from that morning with set up, to the smoothness of the ceremony, and into the reception. If you are looking for an impeccable venue with amazing staff within budget this is the place to go. The landscape gave for some outstanding photographs. Thank you again SoSerene!

    Breathtaking setting with impeccable service!    posted 10/7/2013 (updated 10/9/2013)

    Your search for the perfect wedding venue is over the minute you arrive at SoSerene. Although at first glace, SoSerene is quite breathtaking in pictures, it is definitely something you should check out in person. No photograph could do this place justice, as it is hard to capture the essence of this venue in a single photograph. There are so many elements to take in that your guests will be awed from the moment they arrive. It is meticulously landscaped and maintained, as an ever-evolving canvas throughout the seasons. Joy (the owner) does a remarkable job in selecting the flowers and plants around the grounds as to fit perfectly with the theme of the venue and to ensure that there is always something beautiful blooming!

    The owners have poured their heart and soul into the creation of this magical place; it is truly a labor of love. They are beyond dedicated to what they do and it shows. From the first meeting, to the wedding day, to every little detail in between—Mark and Joy never seem bothered to be of assistance and are always more than helpful in any capacity they can be. 

    I couldn’t imagine a more perfect venue to have a wedding. This place has everything you need in one place, so no need to locate a separate place for the ceremony and reception. In the end, if you add in the price of multiple locations, table, chair, and/or tent rental, and decorations, you won’t come close to matching the beauty of this place for the money you will pay. It is laid out so that there is a seamless transition from one part of the day into the next, and there are multiple locations for photographs away from the venue itself. The owners have thought of everything so that each special moment has the perfect “backdrop” built right in. 

    I have been back to SoSerene for other weddings since my special day, and was amazed that as perfect as the place seemed already, they continue to add to and improve the venue. Their creativity and artistic mastery never ceases, as the setting just grows more and more remarkable with everything that’s added. It is definitely worth checking out for yourself—you will not be disappointed!

    Beautiful venue, amazing experience!    posted 8/6/2013 (updated 8/7/2013)

    SoSerene is amazing. We got married there on 8/3/13 and had a wonderful experience. Joy, the owner, is awesome-she answered all of our questions promptly, allowed us to tour SoSerene multiple times, and helped everything run smoothly on our wedding day. 

    SoSerene is so beautiful on its own you will not have much extra decorating to do as you might in a banquet hall. All of our guests were amazed by how beautiful this venue is. It is quiet-no traffic noise to distract your guests. Joy and her husband have thought of everything. For example, as the ceremony was about to start her husband blocked the main entrance so guests arriving late wouldn't disrupt the ceremony, and Joy was up at the crack of dawn making sure the pond/gardens looked their best. Joy was always available to help from set up to clean up, and made sure my bridesmaids and I were where we were supposed to be. 

    SoSerene also has a list of vendors as suggestions, but we were welcome to use vendors not on the list. We were very concerned it was going to rain, which it didn't, but even if it had we would have been fine as the ceremony/reception areas are all covered. The pool house is air conditioned which your guests will appreciate if it's hot out. Joy also closed all the shutters during the reception as the sun was going down so the sun wouldn't be in guests' faces. Then she opened them back up so everyone could enjoy the sunset! The dressing area is somewhat small but they are going to expand it. Your guests will appreciate having the ceremony and reception in the same place, so they don't have to drive all over the place and wait forever for the wedding party to show up. 

    I really can't say enough about how thrilled we all were with this experience. Even if it is a bit of a drive for you, I wouldn't let that stop you from considering this venue for your wedding. You will not be disappointed, and your guests will rave about how beautiful your wedding was!

EVERYBODY loved and were impressed with our venue! It was exactly what we had invisioned and the only place I found where you can have the ceremony outside, and also the reception without any fears of getting wet in case the weather doesn't cooperate that day, and without all the hassels of building a tent. It is truly a hidden gem, where you feel like a destination wedding close to home. The grounds are gorgeous and the gardens well kept, with beautiful greek decor which decreases the money you need to spend on decor. the pond, stone walls, rustic feel and all the nature made a beautiful backdrop for all of our photos and which came out amazing. Joy responds to your questions promptly and along with her staff works her butt off so that your day goes perfect and as planned. I would recommend this venue to anybody and everybody!

Thank you so much Joy (owner of SoSerene) for a most wonderful wedding!!!!! IT WAS PERFECT! :)

I don't know if we could have chosen a more perfect place for our wedding. Although the price is steep for our area, we were able to drastically adjust our decoration budget because SoSerene is so beautiful on its own. If you are looking for a beachy feeling wedding in the middle of Ohio SoSerene is for you

I can't say enough about how much we loved this wedding venue. The owners take such great care of the place and were wonderful to work with. They have so many flowers that you barely need to purchase any additional flowers. You can have your wedding ceremony and the reception at the same place and it's absolutely beautiful. We had so many positive comments about the venue.

Soserene is an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. You can plan your ceremony and reception there and choose to have it indoors, outdoors or a little bit of both. They are constantly upgrading and adding more to an already beautifuly 'serene' setting. Joy is amazing to work with!!!! I can't say enough good things about the owners or the venue. Absolutely wonderful!
