“How did you decide on the location and the look for your wedding?

We were married at The Welsh Hills Inn. The Inn sits on a hilltop with a beautiful, vista view wraparound veranda overlooking the property in Granville, Ohio. The venue really fit our personalities and made decorating easy. The property is simply beautiful. We didn’t feel the need to do much with decor. We kept everything simple.”
