As Miami Mergers our wedding day in Oxford was perfect from start to finish. Of course, this perfect day was months in the making thanks to the fantastic crew at Carillon Catering, most notably Neila Hanges. We live in Nashville, Tennessee, so it was challenging to coordinate a wedding from a distance. Neila helped us through every aspect of the event planning process from assisting us with floor diagrams, providing us with vendor recommendations, and even whipping together a phenomenal Miami Mergers rehearsal dinner cake at the last minute. Without Neila's assistance, I'm not sure how we would have pulled this all off! Our wedding ceremony took place at Kumler Chapel, and our guests had nothing but positive compliments. The chapel was beautiful, and the newly installed air conditioning was a huge plus! We did not decorate the chapel in any capacity, and I think it looked absolutely lovely. The stained glass, ornate woodwork and arched ceilings looked lovely as is -- our photographs reflect that. The crew that unlocked the doors both for the rehearsal and wedding were timely and helpful. Following the ceremony, we hosted a cocktail hour and reception at the Armstrong Student Center. I cannot compliment the event staff enough. Unlike other venues we looked at, Miami was so transparent about charges and mysterious fees. The event staff set up all of our rented tables and wedding decorations at no charge. They coordinated with our other vendors including the florist, DJ, and chair rental company. What can I say about the Armstrong Student Center that hasn't been said? It was absolutely beautiful and again, needed minimal decorations. The seal made a perfect backdrop for pictures, and our guests raved about the lovely architecture throughout the venue. Food was delicious, and the prices were extremely competitive with other venues. Compared to anywhere else in Oxford, ASC was an absolute steal and by far the best space! We had the misfortune of having an MIA DJ. Luckily, the Armstrong Student Center staff was quick on their feet. When they realized the DJ was not there, they bent over backwards to help us with a Plan B (and C and D). Due to their quick thinking, we were able to get sound on and throw on an iPhone while we waited for the DJ to show up. My only complaint was the lighting situation. It seemed as though the only settings were extremely bright lights, stadium lighting, or no lights. As the night progressed, it was somewhat awkward to get people on the dance floor in full on spotlight effect. We tried to get the lights changed, but no one seemed to know how t get them on a dimmer setting. This was by no means a dealbreaker, but hopefully something we can solve in the future. All in all, we had an incredible time at both Kumler and the ASC. Our guests loved both venues, and I can't think of a better place to begin our married lives together than Miami University. Thank you all so much!
Description

Miami University in Oxford, Ohio provides several options for a destination-like wedding experience. Alumni of Miami University are not the only couples who enjoy the beautiful campus. Our two unique chapels and outdoor formal gardens are available to all brides and grooms for their special day.



Kumler Chapel


Located on the Western campus, Kumler chapel, which seats 235, is a very popular chapel for weddings. A beautiful Romanesque church built of stone with warm wood interior and stunning arches; it has a wonderful array of stained glass windows and 87' aisle. A stone bridge and shaded pond are located just outside the chapel and are perfect for outside photographs.



Sesquicentennial Chapel


Seating 218 guests, this Georgian Colonial chapel is a charming site for smaller ceremonies. Just steps from the The Shriver Center and the Armstrong Student Center this chapel is a convenient location in the center of campus. The red brick chapel with majestic steeple and arched windows was built in 1959 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Miami University. The interior has been recently redorcated in soft colors to provide the perfect background to photograph the wedding ceremony.



The formal gardens adjacent to The Marcum Hotel & Conference Center, is an elegant location for outdoor photos and ceremonies.
