As far as Dayton wedding venues go, the Dayton Masonic Center / Dayton Masonic Temple next to Dayton Art Institute and facing downtown Dayton is often overlooked. This 1928 building perched on a hill just west of downtown Dayton houses one of the best wedding reception venues in Dayton, Ohio. Before I continue, I want to mention that of all the Dayton wedding venues and Cincinnati wedding venues that I visit each year, the air conditioning at the Dayton Masonic Center / Dayton Masonic Temple is the best. Many times with hundreds of wedding guests, dinner, and dancing, the air conditioning at places can get overwhelmed. Not here! I look forward to ice cold receptions when I photograph at this Dayton wedding venue!
Below are some of my favorite Dayton wedding photography images from this Dayton Masonic Center wedding / Dayton Masonic Temple wedding. The DMC has ample parking, great food and a view of downtown Dayton that is to die for. I try to take all of my Dayton brides and grooms outside to for candid and/or formal wedding photos with the giant pillars or downtown Dayton in the background.
