An a new, intimate chapel near Central Ohio Ohio offers a destination wedding vibe that's still close to home.

The best thing about a destination wedding: getting an ambiance that can’t be found in Central Ohio. The worst? The travel, of course. That’s what makes the cozy chapel at Spring Creek Farm in Howard, near Mount Vernon, such a great compromise for those who want a unique atmosphere without the hassle.

“It’s a chapel set on a personal farm property, overlooking a pond and rolling fields,” says Jennifer Drew of StR Events, who planned and coordinated this styled shoot along with Michelle Tancrede. “It’s really amazing!”

The farm’s owner, Jeff Johnson, is a friend of one of Drew’s clients and told her that he built the chapel in hopes of hosting just a few bespoke weddings each year.

“We thought it would be a great opportunity to create a rustic, urban styled shoot—simple, but elegant—and really focus on a beautiful bride in an amazing Ohio setting,” Drew says. “[We wanted to] create something that feels like you’re not even in Ohio.”

But when it came time to choose vendors, Columbus-based Drew selected some of the best Central Ohio has to offer.

“We designed a table that pulled in earthy elements of the farm—concrete, wood bench and ombré linen napkins—while having a touch of elegance with hammered chargers and touches of gold,” Tancrede explains. “Our floral designer, Vessel, brought our ombré, earthy-yet-modern centerpiece idea to life. From there, we wanted the farm grounds and the chapel to speak for themselves. It’s a stunning adventure outside the city, and a unique look at what Ohio can offer!”
