Book Your Wedding with Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center
A BALLROOM IN POWELL, OH
Located in peaceful Powell, Ohio, the Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center is an excellent space for large weddings. It combines touches of modern chic with overwhelming elegance to create a breathtaking ambience. This makes for very memorable ceremonies and receptions all in the same beautiful location. Standing columns, indirect lighting, a parquet dance floor and innumerable artistic flourishes make this venue an impressive setting for first-look photos.
The Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center has four ballrooms to choose from and all are immense. Count on enough room for approximately 600 guests for both ceremony and reception—though there are no rules stating that you have to invite that many. If you want a more intimate occasion, that just leaves more space for dancing. The location's romantic setting makes the bride and groom and their guests feel like royalty for an evening. While all of the ballrooms offer an open, refined atmosphere, the Grand and Upstairs Ballrooms come with distinct perks.
offers a custom built-in bar for an especially trendy atmosphere.
has an open-air veranda that is very popular for weddings. You don't have to worry about the weather since it's covered, but the fresh air and cool breezes grant the ballroom a refreshing, outdoor feel. The veranda also offers exquisite views of the setting sun and evening sky.
What You Should Know
The Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center pretty much takes care of most of the details of your wedding, so you don't have to fret the small stuff. Catering, chairs, tables—including a separate cake table, gift table, DJ table and escort card table—are all included. Seat and table covers, as well as centerpieces are also included in their wedding package. A dedicated event manager focuses on your celebration—even if other events are happening at the same time in other ballrooms—to help everything run smoothly.
Couples should be aware there are some significant differences between different packages. Sophisticated white or ivory-colored, floor-length linens are included in the first-tier package, as well as matching cloth napkins. You also get to choose your centerpieces: beautiful mirrors with hurricanes and pillar candles, or tri-cylinder vases with floating candles. And the newlyweds enjoy a custom-designed head table just for them and their party.
But, if you want to go all out with the Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center's ultrachic linens in custom colors—maybe to match your wedding theme—you have to select one of the second or third-tier packages. The same thing goes for your meal choices. Delicious choices like Rosemary & Thyme Grilled Chicken are available in the first-level package, while if you absolutely must have the Terrine du Poulet with chicken, prosciutto and asparagus, you need to select the third-level option.
If you prefer a multicultural ceremony, the Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center is more than happy to help. They have separate packages for these kinds of ceremonies and receptions, as well as the experience you need to make it work beautifully. On-site audio and visual capabilities in each ballroom let your family members serenade you or show flattering slide shows and videos—and maybe some embarrassing one as well during the ceremony or reception. Complimentary wireless Internet lets you access your photos remotely if you need to. And thanks to tons of free parking, your guests won't have problems staying as long as they want.
The Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center provides an on-site suite for the bride and groom to get ready before the ceremony. But where this venue really stands out is in its decor.
- 30-foot-high ceilings
- Imported marble and granite flooring
- Oriental rugs
- Multiple custom-designed crystal chandeliers
All this and more creates an incredible ambience that is seldom found in other locations. Other notable amenities include:
- One-hour cocktail reception included with all packages
- On-site executive chef

The team at Bridgewater made our wedding day as beautiful and special as possible. The planning process was smooth, and Brian did an excellent job of accommodating our schedules for meetings after hours. Jennifer was very easy and helpful to work with for payments, and she helped me load everything in my car after our event was over, which was no easy feat! As far as our wedding day goes, I could not have asked for more from this venue. They went above and beyond in every detail, and I am so grateful for the way the space came together, the delicious food, the outstanding bar service, and the peace of mind I had throughout the day. Brian, Karen, and the rest of the BW staff were simply amazing! All of our guests had so many positive things to say about how good the food was and how beautiful the ballroom looked. You will not be disappointed if you book BW for your big day! They will give you the wedding of your dreams at a better price than you'll find anywhere else for this type of venue.
Our wedding reception was absolutely beautiful and every last detail was executed perfectly. We have received numerous compliments in regard to the food, bar, and decorations at our wedding reception at Bridgewater. It truly is a one-stop -shop for all of your wedding needs, with great packages to choose from!
"Best wedding ever" is what our guests were saying after our beautiful reception at Bridgewater! Planning was worry free with Terra and decorating was breath taking! Everything ran so smoothly, we were so thankful for a stress free night thanks to the staff at Bridgewater! I highly recommend this venue for food, efficiency, decor, kindness, and love!
The people that work at this venue are incredible. They all did their part in making this wedding day so very special to us. All night we were being told by the guests that the whole experience was unbelievable. So many compliments on how wonderful the staff was, beautiful the venue is, and who can forget the delicious food!!!! Thank you for making our dreams come true.
The experience from our wedding was wonderful! The venue was outstanding and the planning that Terra did was above and beyond. I highly recommend this venue to anyone that is busy with their day to day life. Terra handled everything for us and went into great detail from the rehearsal to the ceremony to the reception. I wanted for nothing that day. Aside from the cost of the venue/food itself, there was minimal amount of money that we needed to spend. Terra and her team did an outstanding job and made our special day stress free! Thank you Bridgewater and Terra! We are so happy that we chose your location for our wedding!
Wow! This venue was wonderful! Terra was a pleasure to work with and was able to work with us on all aspects of the wedding. She was outstanding at coordinating everything from the rehearsal, to the ceremony to the reception. The food was great! The service from everyone on the day of the wedding was great as well. I wanted for nothing the day of. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has an extremely busy life. With both my husband and I working 50+ hours a week at times and taking care of our 1 year old, they made planning for such a special day easy. The venue took care of everything and there was minimal cost outside of paying for the venue that we really needed. Thanks again Bridgewater and Terra!
The venue was absolutely beautiful the day of our wedding. The food is also quite good! Most of the time Brian was pretty easy to get ahold of. He helps out where he can, sometimes you just have to send a simple question to him multiple times before he answers. He was a big help in my meeting with him setting the room up, and really listened to what I wanted it to look like. The late night munchies there were a big hit at my wedding as well!! If you want a beautiful venue, I highey recommend Bridgewater.
We had a lovely receptionReviewed on 6/11/2014 Chris V
We had our wedding reception here, and we had a great time. Good: We definitely recommend paying the extra money for the ceiling draping. It adds a WOW factor and also comes with ribbon lights. Debra, Terra, and the coordinators are extremely flexible and easy to work with. Even three days before the wedding, we were still able to change things. Everything was set up the way we specified, as well. They also had the most reasonable price scheme for allowing outside catering ($8 incidental fee per person) and beverages are consumption based (with no minimum). Bad: There is a disconnect between the organizers and the staff that worked the actual reception. We had requested the catered food to be plated, but it ended up being served buffet-style. We also requested a plate of fruit for the bride's suite since she hadn't eaten since the ceremony but the wait staff told us that they didn't have any fruit (which wasn't true).
Wonderful!Reviewed on 8/12/2011 Megan M
I can't say anything negative about our experience with Bridgewater. Their pricing was reasonable. The venue was lovely. The staff was extremely helpful and thoughtful. Anna did a wonderful job getting everything decorated and was willing to listen to any ideas that I wanted to present. The food tasted wonderful and many of the guests said that they enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.
