note from photographer:

There are many beautiful wedding venues in the Cincinnati Area, but there’s just something about these historical wedding venues that adds a classic touch, effortless romance and timeless joy to your wedding day. Hope you enjoy this small peek into one of my favorite historical wedding venues.

peterloon ESTATE is a historic georgian-style home created in 1928 by john J emery for his wife and family. the estate is located in indian hill, oh. 

Two interesting facts:
1. The home has beautiful wood floors that are over 400 years old & hand carved wood paneling throughout the home
2. The rooms located upstairs provide guests with a glimpse into history so you can see the original design and setup from the Emery family

"A historic estate located in Indian Hill, this beautiful venue is one of the best places to host an event in Cincinnati. It is surrounded by green space- giving you a lot of privacy but also a lot of flexibility to create an outdoor event space. 
It is extremely well taken care of and their event staff could not be more helpful! 
Being in the industry we have hosted many events here and have had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!"

Planning Tips from a pro


Peterloon offers a beautiful sprawling landscape with unique rooms and lawn spaces. Be sure to spread out your events, so guests can experience the natural beauty and rich history of the site. We recommend getting ready in the bridal suite, an outdoor ceremony on the side lawn, a cocktail hour in the living room, and a reception on the new patio. This venue takes your breath away with every turn, and you will want to be sure you make the most of the space on your big day. 


Peterloon offers stunning antique pieces to place your cake and favors, so be sure to make good use of these available items. We always recommend doing a site visit with your wedding planner, photographer, and florist, so they can create a timeless aesthetic that accentuates the history of the space.


You will want to make sure your timeline allows for plenty of photos both inside and outside. By walking the space with your wedding planner and photographer, you can ensure you have time for it all (even sunset photos)!
