Our wedding experts are constantly scanning reviews and social media to find out who the best wedding professionals are in the Toledo area.  Your opinion matters.  Please email us direct at with any thoughts you have about the Toledo area's best wedding professionals and we will keep adding new categories to our list.  Based on our personal reviews and the opinions of our panel of wedding experts, this is where we stand to date for the best of the best for 2022




OFFICIANT - Our Wedding Officiant of the year is Toledo Wedding Officiant.  Through their affiliations, they have been part of Toledo area weddings for over 30 years.  They are experts at both religious and civil ceremonies, putting as much or as little emphasis on religion as you want.  They come to you and have years of experience at many of Toledo's best wedding sites like Nazareth Hall and Maumee Bay.  When wedding professionals get married, they contact this Officiant.  On line at  Connect by email at or by phone at 419-464-9464.

DISC JOCKEY - With little discussion needed, our wedding experts agree that the best DJ Service in the Toledo area is Decorative Sound and we award them Disc Jockey of the year.  The continuous 5 star reviews, professional DJ's, and best in industry equipment make this professional stand out well above the hundreds of self-proclaimed Wedding DJ's in the area.  Anyone can buy a laptop and a few speakers and be in the business, but few have the continuity of service that Decorative Sound has.  Referred by most area wedding venues and professionals, there is no other choice in the Toledo area to pick for a day that must be perfect.  Check them out online at  Call Michael Baginski at 419-867-6733 or email Michael at

FLORIST - Florist of the year is Emery's Flowers in Maumee. Emery's has easy access from anywhere in Toledo.  There are bigger florists in the Toledo area, but our experts agree that Emery's provides the best personal service. A local family owned florist, Emery's is known for being a specialist in the wedding market throughout northwest, Ohio.  They are committed to offering the finest floral arrangements and gifts, backed by service that is friendly and prompt.  Contact Ken or any of his excellent staff by phone at 419-491-4765 or by email at

OUTDOOR CEREMONY SITE - All of our wedding experts agree that the best outdoor ceremony site is by far on the shores of Lake Erie at Maumee Bay Resort in Oregon, OH, just a short drive east of Toledo.  Maumee Bay Resort wins as Outdoor Ceremony Site of the year.  With both their Patio and North Lawn sites, Maumee Bay offers beautiful views of the Lake for fantastic spring, summer and fall weddings.  For brides and grooms looking for the perfect outdoor wedding, look no further than Maumee Bay.  Contact Kendra Buchanan direct at Maumee Bay at 419-836-0008.

INDOOR CEREMONY SITE - The winner of Indoor Wedding Site of the year is the Chapel at Nazareth Hall.  If you want to get married in a church like setting that is not affiliated with any specific religion, the Chapel at Nazareth Hall is perfect.  This Chapel is built into the building and has all of the feel of any church.  The regal setting and beautiful rooms set aside for both the Bride/Bridesmaids and Groom/Groomsmen make this the perfect indoor setting to get married in.  Contact the Nazareth Hall at 419-832-2900.

PHOTOGRAPHER - Our Photographer of the year is Julie Martini.  Based on the reviews we have received, Julie and her staff will make you feel like you have known them forever.  Their professional attitude is also fun, and the quality of the final work is the best in the Toledo area.  Don't trust some family member who has a really cool camera to get all of your precious moments captured, hire the award winning Julie Martini.  On line at; at Facebook,, or by phone at 419-494-3844. 

RECEPTION HALL - We have a tie for best Reception Hall of the year.  Our wedding experts agree that both Maumee Bay Resort and Nazareth Hall are the two best places in the Toledo area to have your wedding reception.  Nazareth Hall is short drive west to Grand Rapids, Ohio, an easy trip down scenic River Rd.  There are several halls located in this historic facility, as well as a full chapel and outside grotto for your ceremony.  They even have on site accomodations in a 4 bedroom on property home that you can rent. You can find them on line at or call them at 419-832-2900 to schedule a tour of their facilities.  Maumee Bay Resort is more than just a place to have your ceremony and reception.  Located on Lake Erie in Oregon, Ohio, it's a quick easy drive to the east.  As a full service resort, you can have your ceremony at either the patio or north lawn site, then come inside to one of many halls that overlook the Lake.  After that, you can stay in any of their beautiful rooms as well as dine in their full service restaurant.  You can find their wedding services on line at, then click the "groups & events" tab, then click the "weddings and receptions" tab.  Call them direct at 419-836-0008 for more information.
