Help Your Clients Create their Dream Wedding at Wagnalls Memorial Library

If your wedding clients are searching for more than the typical “wedding hall” in Columbus, Wagnalls offers them a unique alternative with our historical auditorium. Authentic architectural characteristics combine with stunning rooms and views to provide a romantic wedding experience that’s unmatched in the area.

Located in the small charming town of Lithopolis just southeast of Columbus, the Library sits nestled in a quaint setting amidst trees, a stone laid courtyard, a manicured garden, trellis walkway, and green lawns with ample space for outdoor ceremonies. When wedding guests enter the Library, they will feel as though they have traveled back in time to a Renaissance-era where they will marvel at the fine finishes around them.

Wagnalls has recently expanded its wedding services to include full catering packages by partnering with local award-winning catering companies. Our detail-oriented wedding manager and caterers understand that every wedding is a signature event, and strive to provide the highest level of service helping you organize weddings both large and small.
