Jorgensen Farms was by far the most perfect venue we could ever ask for to have our wedding at. Val, Heather, Emily and Kelly were amazing to work with. They were easy to communicate with, open to suggestions on what we saw in terms of our wedding vision, and made sure that our big day went smoothly. We got engaged shortly after the beginning of this year and needed to plan a wedding within 3 months, which at the time, seemed daunting. However, the whole process was so stress-free that people couldn't believe that I was getting married in such a short period of time when they would ask me. Oak Grove is so beautiful that it does not need much extra in terms of decorations. Everyone at our wedding told us how the food was the best that they have ever had at a reception, and I can't forget to mention how the chef even made me a personalized jar of homemade Siracha since he recognized a fellow spicy food lover at the tasting they hosted for us. Small things like that is what makes Jorgensen Farms stand out from the rest. I am so grateful to have been able to take advantage of everything outdoor that Oak Grove has to offer. It felt like we were getting married at an elegant greenhouse out in California right here in the middle of Ohio. It was important to us to pick a venue that values the local community and the land. Val lives this way through and through, with the farm selling organic herbs, vegetables, flowers, fruits, and wool products to local chefs and grocers. When we came up with the idea to honor the land by planting a tree, Val didn't laugh at the idea, but took it by the reigns. She invited us back to Oak Grove a couple of weeks after the wedding to plant a Red Bud tree, which is native to Ohio, in the gorgeous tree line up against the venue. We can't wait to see how the tree grows just as we grow in our marriage. If you are looking for the wedding of your dreams, choose Jorgensen!
Absolutely loved this venue. The owner, Val, was so sweet to work with. She and her staff have done a wonderful job creating a wedding venue on a working farm. The onsite florist created the prettiest bridal bouquets I've seen. The setting is very picturesque and the wedding photos turned out fantastic. Can't say enough good things about this wedding venue. ---Mom of bride.
What can I say about this venue that can put into words how perfectly our wedding went thanks to Heather and the staff. The attention to details and the friendly attitudes of all that work there completely put myself and my wife at ease that it was all going to be handled. From the old barn beauty to the branched arch used for the ceremony. This couldn't be a better setting for a country chic wedding. I suggest them above all else in the columbus area and would reccommend them and their staff to ANYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!
The team at Jorgensen made our wedding day so wonderful and stress free. Heather, Val and Jen made sure that we had exactly what we wanted and were easy to communicate with. The venue is absolutely beautiful and we had so many compliments on the setting and flowers (also done by Jorgensen!) We did an engagement shoot on the property, as well, and it was the perfect backdrop for our photos!
Val & her Team know exactly what they are doing... and they are doing everything insanely perfect. There is no wonder why they have this long list of raving reviews. Brendon and I got married this past September on 9-2-17. Our wedding date just happened to be that one rainy day out of the month... and honestly, I think it made the pictures look even better! Oak Grove IS the most beautiful venue around... even when it is raining. In fact, It is pretty close to being the only venue in all of Ohio that has an inside space to hold 120+ people and an outdoor covered area to hold 120+....Making the event function selections versatile and accommodating for that "what if it rains" scenario. Val's attention to detail is evident in every aspect. She continues to improve upon her venue even when she doesn't "have to". Her standard's are high--- and that only makes the experience that more magical. When you can walk into a venue and recognize a Restoration Hardware light fixture... you know you are not only in the right place.... but in a place where the investment in representing only the best and most current style/ trends is a focus. The list continues when it comes to the luxury detail and treatment.... The venue is stunning- it "wowed" all of our guests. However the treatment from the Jorgenson Farms Team just really topped it all off. Its clear that everyone enjoys what they do and takes pride in where they work. We toured / booked with Val, got additional information from Emily and then planned with Heather. Everyone was quick to respond to our questions/ accommodating with all of our specific needs. I don't think we were told "no" once when it came to any of our special requests. Our day was spectacular... I just cant say enough and I just cant THANK everyone enough. Jorgenson Farms is truly a gem in Columbus and they deserve all of the continued success in the world. It is fair to say that we were more than pleased.
The historical barn and entire property was just beautiful! Our day could not have been more perfect. The entire staff was helpful and just so easy to work with the entire way!
I can’t say enough about what a magical wedding day we had. The venue is gorgeous, but the staff are even more so. Everyone went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect day. Val is a true angel and Heather is so helpful. Book your wedding here and you will not regret it for a second. Your guests will thank you too!
We got married at Jorgensen's newest venue, Oak Grove. The wedding was just spectacular. Everybody LOVED the gorgeous greenhouse and cottage, and we could not have asked for a better experience with the staff. They were flexible and willing to help us out wherever needed. Although it was a little pricier than some of the other venues that we had looked at, having chairs/tables/bathrooms/catering space/skilled staff on site and included in the price was worth it. So glad that we went with Jorgensen!
We got married at Jorgensen Farm's new venue (Oak Grove) last month. To say it's a gorgeous event space is an understatement. We toured the farm in December shortly after getting engaged and only half of the venue was completed at that time. Emily did our tour and she was so warm, welcoming, and very professional. We did a second tour with Val, the owner, and our parents prior to booking the space. The property is also a working farm and you can tell Val pours her heart into it. We attended the grand opening/open house in May and the completed venue exceeded our expectations. Oak Grove is completely separate from the original Barn event space so you will not overlap with another wedding. It feels both modern and rustic and the use of indoor/outdoor space is why we ultimately chose to book. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful Oak Grove was! Our day-of-wedding coordinator, Jennifer, was extremely friendly and great to work with. We first met her at our rehearsal the night before the wedding. She brings such a positive and upbeat energy. We were able to bring all of our decorations and alcohol/desserts to store at the venue which made the wedding day SO much easier – and Jennifer even helped us carry the boxes! She went above and beyond for us and I have a feeling she was doing a lot behind the scenes to make the day run smoothly. All of the Jorgensen staff the day of the wedding was very friendly and the day turned out perfect. I have only two complaints: (1) We negotiated two lawn games into our contract, however the games were never set up. This was very disappointing since we had told guests these would be available (in our program and in our wedding invites) and we were really looking forward to playing them and keeping the wedding a little less traditional. (2) The communication with the pre-wedding coordinator Heather could be improved. I had to reach out to set up the initial meeting and also the week of the wedding to see what else was needed from us (like guest counts and layout, which we hadn’t provided yet). For the cost of the venue, I would have preferred a coordinator to take the first steps and reach out to us to schedule these things. When we met in person with Heather, I really liked her….she was personable and on top of things, it’s just that little extra of customer service that was missing for me. Overall, I would highly recommend Jorgensen Farms Oak Grove venue. Yes, the cost is slightly higher than some of the other venues in town, but the space is gorgeous and the staff and owner are wonderful.
Loved having our wedding at Jorgensen's!! We planned our wedding from out-of-state, and our contact Heather was flexible in scheduling meetings at the venue based around our availability. She was also helpful in taking questions via phone and email. Our day-of coordinator Jennifer provided wonderful support in aligning our photographer, band, caterer, and bridal party members. She even arranged to have a golf cart to transport our elderly relatives from the parking lot and one to transport my husband and I during our photos. The venue itself is beautiful (pictures don't do it justice!). The flower field & barn were great for a wedding/reception combo, with plenty of room for guests to mingle before/after the ceremony, as well as during the reception. The staff spends a lot of time and effort in maintaining the beautiful flowers & greens that are around the venue. They also are constantly improving all the venue's assets (both natural and buildings). In fact, when we first visited, they had not yet broke ground on the new bathrooms and since that time, they have expanded the bathrooms, kitchen, and re-done the roof. Can't say enough about the quality of service that JF provides. We knew from our first visit that we were in good hands and signed that day. Val's venue and team are of the highest quality and were largely responsible for making our day so memorable.
Jorgensen Farms is amazing! Our wedding was absolutely beautiful (Even though it rained ALL DAY). Heather and Jennifer were so helpful and attentive. They made sure our day was as perfect as it could be! They were flexible with the unfortunate rain and made sure every detail we asked was completed. We LOVED having our wedding there and had the time of our lives! So many of our guests also complimented how beautiful the venue was! Gorgeous!
My wedding at Jorgensen Farms was absolutely amazing. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and it's great to be able to have the ceremony and reception in the same place. Our guests loved that there were so many places to spend the evening - from the fire pit, to the dance floor and even just walking around the property. The staff was incredible on our actual wedding day and made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the event. The staff before the event, especially Heather, were so helpful with planning and made our day absolutely perfect! Jorgensen is perfect if you are looking for a rustic themed wedding and you can truly make it your own and personalize your event.
Although it's a little pricey, it's worth every penny. Jorgensen Farms is a gorgeous reception venue. Multiple guest commented on how beautiful the site was and people that weren't even there but saw photos complimented it as well. We had our ceremony on site and the coordinators with Jorgensen Farms made sure everything went smoothly on time. It truly felt like we were having a fairy tale wedding!
We are so so happy that we chose this venue. Jorgensen farms is absolutely beautiful and Heather did such a wonderful job of making sure everything ran smoothly. The moment my husband and I stepped onto the grounds we just knew it was the place for us to get married. Even in the winter the grounds and landscape were so beautiful-- the inside was lit with strings of lights, large chandeliers and it felt like a Christmas wonderland. This was the perfect place for us to get married and exactly what we had been picturing.
The venue is beautiful and requires very little additional decorating. The staff is very accommodating and makes sure they do whatever they can to make sure your wedding day is perfect.
This was my dream location and after visiting 20+ other locations, we came back to Jorgensen. It was our best choice and well worth the investment. All of our guests were awed by the beauty and elegance of the location, the setting and the attention to details. I had my heart set on getting under a tree, and the outdoor ceremony location was perfect. For our vintage theme, we had four vintage cars around the location to help set the stage (thanks Val!) rented vintage china, and loaded up on flowers. The florist, caterer, DJ and photographer found Val's team to be easy to work with and flexible. To make it easy for us (bride and groom) there was a house for the bridal party to get ready in, and a house for the groomsmen to get ready. It was a magical day made even better by the venue. It was a dream.
We had our wedding at the Oak Grove site at the end of September and it was absolutely perfect. The venue is stunning and we got so lucky with perfect weather. We definitely had some speed bumps along the way due to the venue being brand new and under construction, but they heard our concerns loud and clear and did everything they could to make it right. They made our outdoor wedding dreams come true with string lights and a beautiful ceremony setting against the farms oak trees. My husband and I are so thankful to have had such a beautiful back drop. The only downside is it is expensive and their communication isn't always the greatest. Still, love this venue and hope to attend a wedding there again sometime!
Val, Heather and the team at Jorgensen Farms are the best wedding/event professionals we've ever worked with. Although this is our first (AND ONLY) wedding for both of us, we regularly host events throughout the country. From small events for a team of 10 to large festivals for thousands, we've never worked with a better team of talented, caring, detail-oriented, think of it before you utter your need it staff! We will forever be grateful for their hard work and the care they showed us, our bridal party and our guests. We know that we've made lifelong friends at Jorgensen Farms. We are forever grateful.
My wedding day was September 24, 2016. Jorgensen Farms was the perfect venue for us!! We were looking for an outdoor venue with natural beauty and one that would be memorable to ourselves and all our guests. I used the florist at the farm as well. Everything worked out wonderfully. Suzi made gorgeous bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids and created beautiful centerpieces. This was after months of back and forth together creating the exact look we wanted based on some DIY elements we would add in. Suzi was open to all my ideas and created the exact look we were going for. The venue was in tip top shape for our guests upon arrival. Heather helped a ton from the planning process through the rehearsal the day before and then day-of. Overall, we couldn't be happier with our decision to go with Jorgensen Farms. It was very pricey and any add-ons (candles, etc) were overpriced in our opinion. But that being said, we felt it was all worth it because of the experience, ease of planning everything that was included. The farm was beautiful and we have not stopped getting compliments on our wedding. We are so happy with our choice! Thank you Val and all of you at Jorgensen!
Jorgensen was an amazing venue! The venue is beautiful and fit our personalities/lifestyles perfectly. The layout of the entire facility along with the adjacent homes for which we were able to use the day of are wonderful and help make things much easier. The employees were very helpful and helped organize, push certain items along, and make sure we were not getting behind. The constructive criticism I would have would be for the decorations, some of the contract details, along with the minute details such as fire pit, etc., and personnel changes immediately before the wedding. Following the wedding reception we apparently had a miscommunication with some of our personal decor with the staff members as far as how much of the decorations needed to be completely removed and/or moved out of the main area to a designated area, and by what times. Some of our personal linens were also misplaced and unable to be found until we made a phone call to a friend/vendor and found them ourselves. Decorations and timing were discussed multiple times and everyone seemed to be on the same page. I believe these issues could be resolved in assuring the specific details of decorations, timing, placement, extras (fire pits) etc. be clarified more clearly in the contract. I would also recommend marking personal decorations so that Jorgensen staff is aware it is not a vendor's. My comment toward personnel changes is that we worked directly with one member the entire time leading up to our wedding and had a different member there the night of the rehearsal, which appeared to add some confusion as she was not fully aware of some of the details. Jorgensen is an overall amazing venue with a laid back casual feel and I wouldn't change our experience there. I think some minor tweaks in the contract and assuring future customers AND the staff are both crystal clear on specific details will help avoid confusion and potential conflict. For the net cost of the venue and other invested items I would think this should be a smooth process to accomplish and appease all parties involved.
I got married here on 9/17/16. I had my heart set on getting married under the big tree in the flower field, but it rained.... and it was still perfect!!! The entire day was seemless and beautiful- the team switched from an outdoor to an indoor wedding without a hitch. We received so many compliments on the organization of the day and the stunning beauty of the barn. The barn comes with a huge chandelier, string lights, dried herb displays etc. The addition of the new mint bar created the perfect amount of extra space. Heather and Val are amazing to work with- SO organized and helpful. Suzi and the stylists did an incredible job. My flower arrangements were exactly what I envisioned. Use as many services as you can from the farm(linens, styling, organic flowers-grown on site!), and everything will truly come together for your perfect fairy tale! I would get married here 10 times over :) it was a perfect way to start our happily ever after.
This venue was absolutely amazing! It was a dream wedding. We had the perfect weather, the perfect weather and the perfect staff! Everything was done beautifully and the staff was so helpful and on top of everything! I couldn't imagine a more beautiful wedding or day!
My dream wedding came true at Jorgensen Farms! Nothing about the day went wrong. We had our wedding on a Friday in October and luckily the weather was perfect. However, even if it wasn't they have a gorgeous indoor ceremony space that also serves as the reception area. Our wedding was spectacular, the farms spots for photos were marvelous, and the wedding coordinator and owner of the farm were wonderful people to work with. They are constantly maintaining and working on the venue. The only downside is that it is pricey.
Just beautiful! Jorgensen is an awesome place to have a beautiful, more casual wedding! Heather, Val and the rest of the staff were awesome to work with! If I had to make one suggestion for the future it would be to build either a cover over the restrooms or permanent bathrooms. They have umbrellas for guests to use to get out to them, but we all now how awkward trying to close one while opening/shutting the door and standing on the top of the steps can be! That being said, that alone did not deter from the beauty of the venue...if we could afford it, we would do it all over again! :)
