We had our wedding here and it was absolutely perfect! Our friends and family are STILL talking about how fun and unique it was! Our event coordinators made plannnig easy and affordable, and everything was so organized and stress-free on the day of the wedding that all that was left to do was enjoy myself. I am so impressed, there are no words. Thank you, COSI, for making our wedding special, unique and stress-free!

Our wedding coordinator Elaine was wonderful and helped throughout the process. There were no hitches except for the planned one (getting married :) ). We had a Halloween themed wedding and COSI provided all the lighting and helped with decorations equaling a unique wedding experience. Thanks again Elaine and the rest of the COSI crew!

We had our wedding in the City room and our reception on the Plaza deck...The only thing that could have been better was the weather!!! Everyone had a great time!!

COSI was so incredibly easy to work with! My event coordinated worked with me to make sure everything was perfect. She worked to set up everything beautifully and I would recommend them to anyone!

We couldn't be happier! Our event planner was so nice- and included in our overall cost-and so easy to work with! The room was beautiful! Lighting was excellent, service was great- and their full bar was the best I've ever seen at a wedding! Our friends and family are still talking about how pretty it was. They transformed a very industrial looking room into a gorgeous, elegant looking wedding reception. No idea how they did it, but it was perfect! Their staff was exceptional. We're very happy with everything.

Our day at COSI exceeded my expectations. Our wedding/event coordinator was amazing! Very helpful, always able to answer our questions, and enthusiastic in general. The day could not have gone any better! The atrium transformed from a Lego city into a fabulous and elegant setting for our ceremony. I heard the cocktail hour in the ocean exhibit was so different and cool (we missed it-we were taking pictures), and the reception in the gallery was amazing (with our names on the wall and the lights going up the wall). The staff (in general) was extremely helpful with setting up, packing, ect-you name it-that would help with it!. I would highly recommend COSI-it was a very unique venue, fit our personalities, great staff, and the food and service were excellent! Our day could not have been more amazing!

I can not only speak for the groom and I, I can speak for our parents, our bridal party, and all our guests...COSI was fantastic. Saying that Samantha, our coordinator from COSI, was a pleasure to work with is an understatement. When asked why I wasn't more stressed for the big day, Samantha was one of my answers. She helped to answer questions we hadn't even thought to ask, coordinated with quick response time, and helped us to have fun during the planning. Our guests raved over the results. Seeing pictures of our guests having fun in the Ocean section, then enjoying a formal dinner in the gallery space helps us see that COSI captured the playfully formal vibe we were going for. Having our reception at COSI helped our big day be memorable for all our guests, not just us.

We cannot say enough about our experience at COSI! As any other romantic and feminine bride can imagine the hesitation I felt when my husband wanted to move our wedding from a beautiful romantic country club to a... science museum... However, I wouldn't have changed our decision for the world. Our event planner, Samantha, went above and beyond at every chance to make sure that my vision and childhood dreams came true. Our ceremony space was whimsical, our cocktail hour modern, and our reception was classic and romantic. The food was delicious, and all of the catering staff very professional. We got SO many compliments about how unique and wonderful our wedding was. It was perfect thanks to COSI & their team. You can't ask for better service, better people, or a better location. It is undoubtedly worth checking out... especially if you want to make your groom FELL like he had a say ;) You will not be disappointed.
COSI is central Ohio's most unique and versatile event location. Our prime riverfront setting in downtown Columbus, coupled with our magnificent architecture, world-class exhibit areas and a mission to inspire, makes us a venue that is unmatched in originality, versatility and value.
