3 Reasons Why I Love Grizer Castle

Imagine saying your vows in a Medieval-style castle with knights in plate armor and coats of arms as the décor.

Think of how magnificent your wedding photos will be against the backdrop of a Norman-style, 14th century castle at sunset….

What would it mean to you if you could create your fantasy wedding just 18 miles away from downtown Marietta, Ohio?

You can have all this plus more when you schedule your wedding at Grizer Castle.

Located in Whipple, OH, Grizer Castle is MY dream venue to officiate a ceremony. It’s unique. It’s gorgeous. Most importantly, it’s an experience that offers something extra magical to couples who want to plan a wedding that everyone will remember and talk about for years to come.

When I visited the castle, I was in awe of its magnificence. I know you will be too. Even more impressive is that Bill Grizer and his family built the castle by hand, laying approximately 46,000 bricks over a span of six years from start to finish. It’s obvious that this project is a labor of love, and I can think of no better place to declare your lifelong love for each other.

Here are three (of many) reasons why I love Grizer Castle.

You’ll make memories that last a lifetime

Capture one-of-kind photos at Grizer Castle

Your photos will look stunning — like you took them in a faraway land. The good news is that you don’t have to travel to France, Spain, or Great Britain to get images that look breathtaking.

Because the castle is secluded and hidden away from other businesses, you and your guests will enjoy the privacy you deserve on the best day of your life. If you want a wedding that looks like no other, Grizer Castle is like no other venue in the area. You can say your vows inside or outside (in the courtyard) without interruption.
