One Of The Best Wedding Venues In Dayton And Cincinnati Ohio
Magnolia Estate in Miamisburg, Ohio is a beautiful outdoor wedding venue that offers indoor reception space. On a hot Saturday in September 2018, I photographed my first Magnolia Estate wedding. The bride and groom were spectacular and provided a great deal of time for bridal portraits. They were up for all of my suggestions including a few minutes for sunset bridal portraits. Although it was very hot, the bridal suite, groom's room, and reception hall are all air-conditioned. I highly recommend this Dayton wedding and reception venue for weddings with 100 or so guests.
Upon arriving at Magnolia Estate, just 8 minutes from Interstate 75, I was pleased with the way the property looked. There is a private residence which houses the groom's room (basement of the house). Once past the house, there is a large parking lot with plenty of room for guests, vendors, and more. The main building appears to be a collection of three space. The indoor space nearest the parking lot is a large bridal suite with air conditioning. Walking through the door on the south side of the suite is the restrooms and small room for the bartenders. This room has a garage door that opens up to the second room which is open air on two sides and has the reception hall on the third side. I believe this area has garage doors for inclement weather. The third room is a beautiful, air-conditioned reception hall with large windows overlooking the outdoor wedding area and gazebo.
Gauge, a DJ from Indianapolis' DJ Connection did a fantastic job. He showed up early for the outdoor wedding and was able to mic the bride, groom, and officiant. When I photograph a wedding, I always hope the DJ is able to amplify the ceremony. Generally, very few people can hear a wedding ceremony, so when I experience a DJ who goes the extra mile, I like to give him props. Gauge did a great job keeping the reception moving, although he didn't have a great deal of leeway due to a pre-determined list of songs from the awesome bride and groom.

Testimonial Review Update After The Wedding: “We could not be happier! Kevin has excellent and timely communication, he's punctual, friendly, and talented! He did our engagement session and our wedding day and both produced fantastic results. He's fun to be around and makes the photo sessions fun too. I was amazed at the amount of photos received from our wedding day and we received them before the honeymoon was over! Just fantastic. We would highly recommend!” - Christie M.
