  • We couldn’t be happier with our choice in venue!! The grounds and indoor spaces were beautiful. We loved the large bridal suite to get ready before the ceremony and reception. The ceremony by the tree was the perfect natural and beautiful backdrop. The reception space fit our 100 guests perfectly and looked gorgeous with minimal additions. Caitlin was amazing to work with — she was so responsive, helpful, and invested in our wedding day. The entire process was seamless, and we could not be happier with how our wedding day turned out.

  • We fell in love with The Washington at HYS the minute we toured it. It was the perfect setting for our wedding in so many ways and working with Caitlin, our venue coordinator, made it even better. Caitlin is the sweetest person to work with and she always answered all our questions right away. We did not have to worry about anything with Caitlin being our venue coordinator. We wanted to be surrounded by nature, gardens, foliage, rustic charm, and we wanted our venue to have a feeling of intimacy, character and history to it. We also wanted to have our ceremony and reception at the same location. The Washington offered all of this in addition to three outdoor ceremony locations that we could choose from (and the indoor space for rainy days was not too shabby either). The grounds of The Washington were simply beautiful no matter where you looked. It also offered a beautiful, spacious bridal suite and groom's lounge. We cannot express how perfect The Washington was for our wedding d... Read more

  • The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs had everything we were looking for in a wedding venue. We wanted a romantic location with character that allowed for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. The Washington fit that 100%. Throughout the day, our photographer kept remarking how beautiful the setting was and how many locations there were for photos. One of the most important things and deciding factors for us when it came to selecting a venue was the responsiveness of the venue's coordinator. Caitlin went above and beyond from the first email we sent requesting a tour. She always responded the same day and was great at recommending other vendors and sharing ideas with us. When we arrived the day of the wedding, they had staff working on the gardens to make sure everything was picture-perfect and ready to go. The Washington truly made our wedding day magical and unforgettable. Also, for my fellow brides, their bridal suite is phenomenal.

  • My husband and I couldn't be happier with The Washington! We booked our wedding two years out so we could be sure that we'd have our choice of vendors and we have no regrets there. Caitlin was awesome to work with, and the venue itself is fantastic - there's history, beauty, and (maybe most importantly) options in case of inclement weather! We ended up being able to have our ceremony outside, but after weeks of rainy weather it was so nice to not worry about what we'd do if it did rain on our day. The Washington provides a list of preferred caterers you can work with, and our choice - Feastivities - was AWESOME. Three weeks have past and guests are still telling me how much they loved the food! The staff was super nice and attentive as well. I can't recommend The Washington and Feastivities highly enough!

  • The Yellowsprings was everything I could have every dreamed of. The space alone is beautiful but you can add your own flare if you’d like with decor and catering. Caitlin helped coordinate the day of and because of her the ceremony went off without a hitch. We were able to fit a 6 piece band, and 125 guests with plenty of room for dancing. 10/10 would recommend!!

  • When looking for a wedding venue, my husband and I knew that we were looking for something that was unique and The Washington was exactly that! The history of the venue and that beautiful gardens were the perfect setting and backdrop for our ceremony and reception. We loved the space for the reception and what really sold us, were the options for the ceremony, both indoors and outdoors. We ended up having our ceremony in front of the tree but if it rained, we knew that we would be more than happy with the indoor option, which is a beautiful space with a lot of character. Caitlin was great to work with and responded quickly to our questions. We could not have asked for anything more. Highly recommended!

  • Love love LOVE!! This location checked ALL our boxes! Multiple options to choose from for ceremony locations, a rainy day ceremony spot that would not interfere with the reception. A location SO GORGEOUS that very minimal decorating needed to be done! A flexible venue coordinator, and the ability to bring in all our own vendors! Our guests rave about the beauty! We would recommend this place to everyone! Thank you Caitlin and Maeve!

  • One visit to this venue will, and you will conclude like we did that this is a perfect place for a wedding. The small village of Yellow Springs is quiet and filled with natural beauty. The Washington itself is a well preserved, historic building with a specail historic charm to it. We had one of our ceremonies outdoors, and there were at least three gorgeous locations for us to choose from for this, but we were relieved that they also have an indoor space that could easily fit all our guests if the weather was bad. The reception hall could fit up to 150 guests, but we topped off at 130 which allowed for an ample sized dance floor. The staff at the Washington were very pleasant and helpful before and on the day of the wedding at helping us plan our wedding day, giving us access at a reasonable time day of, and serving as de facto wedding coordinators for our ceremonies. We were looking for a bucolic or farm setting for our wedding, and this fit the bill and was one of the cheaper ... Read more

  • Caitlin was absolutely AMAZING! Halfway through my wedding planning the venue coordinator was changed over to Caitlin and I am so glad! She was on top of everything and super accommodating. Whenever I had a question or ten she would respond so quick to my emails and make me feel at ease about everything. I would highly recommend using The Washington for a wedding you won't forget. I am so happy to have had our wedding there!

  • It was so beautiful to have our wedding here. Butterflies were all through the garden and the flowers there were gorgeous, no ceremony decor was needed. It's also amazing to have the last second option to hold a ceremony indoors if the weather isn't cooperating. We let people invite kids and loved the outdoor space for them to run around. Cait was always quick to respond if we had any questions or concerns. Just pick this place for your wedding and make your life easier!

  • We had a wonderful wedding at the Washington at Historic Yellow Springs on 10/28/18 and I'm glad that we found the venue after researching dozens of other places. We worked with Caitlin and she was fantastic, and while she was unavailable for our actual wedding day, Beatrice was a great substitute. The space is beautiful and so charming. We had our first look in the ruins and our ceremony in the garden space. Due to the rain the night before, I was nervous that we'd have to use the backup indoor space, but we lucked out and had a beautiful wedding outdoors! Since the weather was chilly, our cocktail hour was held n the brick room. Folks were encouraged to enjoy the grounds. The reception area was lovely with plenty of space for our 70 guests. Our guests raved about the venue and we will never forget this special day!

  • We chose this venue because of the flexibility. This venue not only offers an area for the bride and groom to get ready, it also offers multiple outdoor spaces for the ceremony and a back up indoor space in case of bad weather. We got very lucky with our weather, but it was great to have a back up plan ready to go in case the sky opened up prior to the ceremony. The history of the buildings added a lot of charm to the venue - great location for pictures. The venue does a great job of keeping the grounds beautiful both inside and out!

  • The moment we toured The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs, we knew this was our venue. It was the first and only venue we looked at in person. The grounds were beautiful, full of lush greenery and gardens. We also fell in love with the venue’s historic significance. Our ceremony was held by the tree, with cocktail hour by the fountain, and pictures taken by the ruins and the herb garden. There are so many picturesque options to choose from. It completely captured the rustic, elegant, ‘non-wedding hall vibe’ that we were going for and guests remarked on the venue’s beauty and unique ambiance. Although our venue coordinators changed between our initial booking and the actual wedding day, both Brittany and Cait were responsive, organized, and successful in making our day perfect! We highly recommend this venue!

  • We fell in love with the Washington right away and booked 2 years in advance. The venue is absolutely perfect, like something out of a fairy tale. The woodland setting is beautiful and so are the gardens, courtyard, meadows, and historic buildings. We especially loved the history of the site. The inside of the venue for the reception was so beautiful it hardly needed any decoration, and it was spacious but also felt sweet and intimate at the same time. We got married on the hill in the stone ruins, and luckily did not need the back-up indoor ceremony site, but that was beautiful too! The suites for the bridal party to get ready in were beautiful and super helpful. The amenities are great and since we chose to get married on a weekday, it was incredibly affordable. The current venue manager Cait is absolutely fantastic! She worked so hard and really made our wedding day the perfect fairytale I always dreamed about. She was on top of everything, responded to emails and calls right away, ... Read more
