Exceptional Experience

I just recently was married and hosted my reception at Nazareth Hall. My entire experience with the staff was phenomenal, from the very first call to the end of the reception! The building and grounds are a picturesque backdrop for any occasion. The staff are friendly and... Read More caring, and went above and beyond to ensure my experience was delightful. The food was out of this world! My parents loved the experience so much, they would be ready to host my two younger sisters' weddings there as well! My experience with Nazareth Hall was fabulous. I felt like a queen the entire time. They are worth every penny!

Truly Amazing

I had wanted to get married at Nazareth Hall since I was a little girl and in May my dreams came true. From the moment I started planning with Kevin, to our sparkler exit from our reception, and every moment in between I was completely happy with my experience. It's pricey,... Read More but not too far off from anywhere else in the area and they are up front with the costs and work with you. Worth every penny though. They take such good care of you and treat every bride as if they are the only one they are concerned with. My one and only recommendation is if you have your ceremony out on the lawn off Lady Glen like I did, don't get a isle runner. It was a tripping hazard and blows all over the place. That is honestly the only thing I would have changed. It was perfect.

Best Place in the Area!

I used Nazareth Hall as the location for my wedding reception, having preferred the ceremony to be at my own church. But the intimate chapel and beautiful grotto would be absolutely amazing for a ceremony! And the Hall itself is gorgeous!! The food was delicious as well, I... Read More received a lot of compliments on the location and dinner. The service there was extremely helpful and organized. Overall, Nazareth Hall's staff was great to work with and I'd recommend them to anyone.

I want to give Nazareth Hall 5 stars, but there were far too many problems at our reception. Let me begin by saying that this is a gorgeous venue. It's a beautiful campus. And the staff is wonderful. However, the management is suspect at best. Two weeks before the reception, we... Read More met with our coordinator and made some changes (i.e. added appetizers, extra 30 minutes for bar and reception, changed salad selection), all of which cost more money. None of these changes were in effect on the day of the reception. The salad was wrong. Servers were supposed to be carrying shrimp cocktail and mac n' cheese bites on trays in the foyer. That didn't happen. We didn't even get those apps until my mother-in-law complained to the staff. They sent the apps out to the tables with the salad. Even though we paid for an extra half hour, the reception still ended at 10, not 10:30. And the cherry on top; our coordinator wasn't working that day and no one could reach her. We told management about the issues that we had and they offered us a refund, which was a small fraction of what we paid for the extras. Needless to say, even though our reception was beautiful, I would not recommend Nazareth Hall to anyone.

Providing excellent customer service is our top priority. We again apologize for the miscommunication that occurred during the planning of your event.

They were very organized and extremely helpful during our whole wedding planning process. Everything went off without a hitch! Our ceremony and reception was beautiful! Thank you Nazareth for making our memories even better than what we hoped for!

easy to work with

Kevin was so easy to work with, always willing to help and very communicative in how things would go. The day of service did not cut the second cake we had, so a few tables did not get cake which was frustrating. The room was gorgeous though and despite the price being a tad... Read More high per person, we ended up with fewer people than expected so it worked out. Though it's kind of out of the way, it's a beautiful hall!

Seriously the best wedding venue ever!

Reviewed on 8/19/2014 Karleen

I originally chose Nazareth Hall as my wedding venue because of the beauty of the Grotto (just one of their ceremony sites). Then, I fell in love with the Ladyglen East ballroom (just one of their several reception areas). When I learned that they handle almost everything, from... Read More the table settings and linens, to the food, to the bartenders and a day of hostess, I was sold! Many brides have something to stress about on their big day. Not me! Nazareth Hall took care of everything. I had not a care in the world on my wedding day, thanks to the folks at Nazareth. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect place for my wedding!! You will not regret choosing Nazareth Hall as your venue!

Beautiful location, but a lot of money

Reviewed on 6/25/2014 Riley M

Nazareth is a beautiful place, especially the grotto! Though it is pricey, you get a lot for the price. Unfortunately, we could not book them--they're always booked!--mainly due to the fact that they were out of our budget.

Best Venue in the greater Toledo area!

I literally showed up and got dressed. It was amazing! My husband and I were originally not going to go see Nazareth for the first time because we assumed we couldn't afford it, it was so beautiful!

There's no question that Nazareth Hall is a beautiful, unique venue and one of the best in the area. But if you're also looking for a top notch service as well, this is also your best bet. We were so pleased with the entire staff at Nazareth Hall--everyone from the... Read More Sales/Coordinating team, to the set-up and clean-up crew was extremely polite, accommodating and absolute professionals. They went over and above to make sure our wedding was wonderful in every way. Our amazing hostess was always prepared when we needed her, and our other vendors were familiar with the hall and staff, which made for a worry and stress-free day. If we could do it all over again, we would still book Nazareth Hall without a doubt. We received overwhelmingly positive comments from our guests as well, especially about the food. If budget is a concern, consider a winter wedding--it's absolutely stunning!!

We held our wedding in the Grotto with our reception at Cadet West. The setting was perfect! The Grotto is beautiful in the summer and Cadet West is always beautiful. We had so many compliments on the venue itself, as well as how helpful the staff were. The chef was very... Read More accommodating for our menu. We had tasted a chicken selection at the Bridal Show and fell in love with it. Even though that selection was not on the menu of options for taste testing (it should be!) the chef let us use it as one of our buffet options. This was not the cheapest venue we visited, but by having our wedding on a Friday we were able to make it happen (there is a minimum cost on Saturdays). (We had 140 guests and the cost was about $8000. Still expensive to us, but worth it for the quality of food and the atmosphere.) I was treated well by the staff, who were amazing! Our wedding coordinator made sure that we had everything we needed and helped me with the train to my gown before the ceremony (something dads just don't know how to do). They took my parent's keys and loaded our gifts and decorations in my parents' car at the end of the night. I can't recommend this venue enough! It made our day perfect!

Truly a fairy tale location for your wedding...

The staff at Nazareth Hall are the best you can get when it comes to planning and executing your wedding! Kevin was excellent and was so helpful during the entire planning process. The cost is extremely reasonable when you consider the beautiful location and the amazing... Read More service you and your guests receive. The grounds are beautiful and make a great backdrop for your photos. The reception rooms are equally beautiful and add real class and style to your reception.

They are so experienced at this that they were able to offer excellent recommendations for my other vendors as well.

Nazareth Hall was everything I could have dreamed of and more! From the first time I saw Nazareth Hall, I knew I wanted my wedding to be there. The place is just more beautiful than words can express. It is the closest thing to a castle that northwest Ohio has! Not only is it... Read More beautiful, but everything that works there knows that this is your one day, and they treat it that way. They make sure you day goes perfect, and if something is not right, they fix it right then and there! From earpieces to make sure that the groom has left the building before the bride starts to go, to a personal wedding consultant that is by you all day for what ever you need. They help put up and take down decorations, the food is amazing! And you even get to meet the head chef on multiple occasions, he even comes out at the reception to greet you and make sure the food is ok. I could not have dreamed of a better place to have a wedding around here. I had almost no stress that day because they were so wonderful! Also, everyone that attended my wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful it was, and I didn't even have to decorate a lot because the building and rooms themselves are so pretty! I will never forget how perfect my day went because of them and I will always be greatful to them for what they made my day. DO NOT get married anywhere else but here!!
