When I set out on the daunting task of planning our wedding, I knew what I wanted. Something magical. I did not want a church or office type carpeting and drop-cieling that wouldn't match with my color theme. As a couple we share a love for history, old architecture, art, music and gardens. We were new to the Cincinnati area and thus completely clueless as to what this city had to offer. We looked at museums and parks, all lovely but just not it. Then we found Pinecroft over in Mt.Airy. It's in an odd side of town, but once you drive onto the grounds, I promise you are transported to another world. We were so amazed to have the mansion for the entire day. I was able to have my hair and makeup artist meet us in the morning while my bridesmaids and I got to leisurely sip on mimosas and nibble on the amazing breakfast that was provided for us. My husband and his groomsmen had an amazing man cave in the cellar that they had no qualms hanging out in to get ready. The grounds were going through quite a transformation in the months between when we reserved the venue and our wedding day, but we truly feel like we chose the best day of the year. The trees were magnificent in color and all our out-of-towners were speechless to the classic beauty of our day. If we had to do it all over again, we absolutely would!

Our wedding day was absolutely amazing - in huge part thanks to Pinecroft. The staff was so wonderful to work with during planning and flawless the day of. Funky's made quite possibly the best food I have ever tasted. The options were out of this world. Seth and Karen made the day of a walk in the park for our families, wedding party and guests. The set up that Cecilia put together for our reception was beautiful. Highly recommend as a venue in the Cincy area!

Pinecroft was by far better than I could have ever imagined. They went above and beyond to make sure not only my husband I were satisfied, they checked with all of the guests as well. The ceremony and reception looked great but the service topped it all. I will recommend this venue to everyone I speak with and hope I have a reason to visit again!!

The staff could not have been more attentive, the grounds were beautiful, and the venue itself has so much character. I could not be happier with choosing Pinecroft where we had our ceremony and reception.

I had an AMAZING experience with at the Pinecroft! The beautiful mansion and grounds speaks for itself, so I'll focus on their service. The onsite wedding coordinator (Cecilia) was extremely patient with my many questions and last minute changes, and not to mention a wealth of information on everything wedding related. Michael and the crowd at Funky's catering, the caterer affiliated with the Pinecroft, wanted nothing more than to taylor menu to relfect our specific tastes and cultures (Lebanese and Italian). They did NOT disappoint...I'm still getting compliments on the food :) which I made a point to try all of (not easy for the bride ya know)! The day of was a breeze and I was able to relax and enjoy the time getting ready in the mansion with my friends and family. I really can't say enough about the venue and staff. It is a bit pricey, however much more reasonable than some of the other wedding locations available that offer a similar, elegant atmosphere...and it was worth every penny. I truly had my dream wedding and wouldn't change a single thing about our day!

WOW…..what negative things can I say about Pinecroft? NOTHING! I think I was the laziest, most pampered bride to walk in the front door. The staff at Funky’s and Pinecroft made me that way. I fell in love with the mansion the minute I saw it. Our guests are still talking about the beauty of the house and property. Our goal was to have a classy, romantic evening with an outstanding meal. That is exactly what we received. The staff at the Pinecroft went above and beyond to contact vendors, dig out donated table numbers and rearrange flowers the morning of our wedding. The tables looked so pretty thanks to them. They served vegetarian meals to vegetarians we didn’t know we had. The staff that served dinner was so kind and thoughtful. The chef or chefs visited the tables to discuss the menu, and then later to make sure everyone was happy. They were awesome!
I would recommend The Pinecroft to any bride that wants a first class venue. My only complaint is that we didn’t starve ourselves the week before our tasting. The food was terrific ! A special thank you to Shannon, Seth, Ralph, Kate and everyone who made our day fantastic!

I was looking for a unique Cincinnati wedding venue, something that had not been done a million times before. When we walked into Pinecroft, we knew it was the special place we had been looking for. It was a beautiful old mansion with history, charm and character. The beauty of the site was met by the passion of the staff. The crew who runs Pinecroft is hands down some of the most thoughtful and helpful staff I've ever come across. They helped me with every detail, including on-site coordination for our big day. And a big day it was...we had over 330 guests, the biggest wedding to date at Pinecroft! They handled it like true professionals and the space accommodated every single one of us! Funky's does all of the catering at Pinecroft. Funky's is fabulous - the food was beyond expectations! I recommend Pinecroft to anyone and everyone I know. It is truly a place where wedding dreams are made!

When I was looking for a wedding venue, Pinecroft blew everyone else out of the water. Eric showed us around the mansion, was very knowledgeable, and professional. The staff is organized and I felt very comfortable knowing my big day would be in their hands. When you book Pinecroft, you do not get a choice in catering companies as Funky's Catering manages the Pinecroft property and they are the sole caterers. This, really, is of little consequence as they do an AMAZING job and prepare fabulous food. We had some pretty specific requests and they were so accommodating. I was never told 'no' or 'we can't do that', their answer was always, 'we will figure out a way to make that happen for you.' I loved having the grounds all day to get ready and to take pictures. We were well taken care of by all of the Pinecroft and Funky's employees. They work like a well oiled machine! One of Funky's owners, Jerin, stopped by our table during the reception to make sure the food and the night were going as expected. Great service!
You can do everything through their wedding coordinator, Cecilia - transportation, flowers, linens, ceremony music, etc. I would recommend doing some of your own research. (ex: I brought in my own linens from an outside vendor for about half the cost of what Pinecroft quoted me.)
The only person I had a complaint about through the whole planning process was Cecilia. She didn't return emails or phone calls and I had to do a lot of checking up on details that I originally thought she would be taking care of. The communication got a lot better once the issue was confronted. She is a lovely person, just didn't meet my expectations.
Regardless of where you get married, if you do not have a wedding planner, I would highly recommend designating a 'day of' person to help answer all the little questions people will ask, to do small errands (like giving out gratuity), and to keep track of the details you will forget!
Overall, out wedding day was beautiful and the Crosley Estate was a perfect setting! I would highly recommend Pinecroft and Funky's! Once you visit, everywhere else will fall short!

My daughter and son-in-law got married at Pinecroft Mansion on September 21, 2013. Words can't describe the service and staff at Pinecroft! It was absolutely amazing.
From the moment we walked into the Mansion (9:00 am) until we left the reception (11:30 pm) we were treated EXCEPTIONAL. Words can't describe how we felt. Every single staff member was super friendly and pleasant and made you feel that you were the only one that mattered for the day. We didn't have to worry about any details - they took care of everything.
It has been over a week since the wedding and we are still getting calls saying how wonderful it was; complimenting on the actual venue to how the food was so yummy and delicious. Most of our guest stated that they never had food taste so good at a reception.
I suggest every bride-to-be to check out Pinecroft Mansion for your venue. Your ceremony and reception can be held at this facility. You will not be disappointed! You will be so happy you chose this venue and so will your guest!
Funky's knocked it out of the park! Thank you again for such a memorable day for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. We couldn't have asked for anything better!

I truly LOVED our venue!!! The staff is amazing and they go out of their way to take care of you and make your "Big Day" everything it should be. We have heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests. Such a unique and new venue! I feel blessed to have my wedding here.

I cannot say enough about how beautiful this venue is for a wedding and reception. It is overall a very good value for what you get.

The first time we visited Pinecroft I knew that I wanted to be married there. It is an absolutely stunning mansion and they have done a wonderful job keeping the character of the house and the grounds. The orchard was an amazing spot for our ceremony and the permanent tent was beautiful for our reception. I loved the fact that we could have our ceremony and reception in one spot. Another bonus was getting the entire mansion for the whole day. My bridesmaids and I enjoyed getting ready and relaxing at the mansion before our afternoon ceremony.

Our original venue, Newport Aquarium, canceled on us 8 months before our wedding. The folks at Pinecroft saved the day! The tent, house, & grounds are gorgeous. The staff was extremely attentive to details. (Ex. Our signature drink had hibiscus syrup in it, so they placed a hibiscus plant on the bar.) The professionalism is amazing and that goes for everyone at the place: the caterers, Cecelia Rose, and house. Great eye for detail, well organized, ran a flawless service during the reception. I work for a Church in Cincinnati and I hear all the brides' stories. I can safely say Pinecroft is a hidden jewel among Cincinnati Wedding Venues!

Im the groom writing this and my goodness this place was a dream come true. We had the perfect covering of snow and the entire property was amazing. The house itself is the definition of classy and cozy and the tent outside was a perfect size for about 215 people. Overall, i would recommend this place for any couple who likes a vintage, cozy and old fashioned place for their reception.

If you want a unique venue with first class service look no further. The Mansion is a beautiful place to get ready for your big day. Funky's delivers EXCELLENT food for a reasonable price. Working with Michael, Cecilia, Brent and Sean was truly a pleasure! Cecilia made sure that the vision I had for our special day came to life even if I did change a couple of things around last minute. Brent was incredibly attentive and seemed to genuinely care that our day was perfect, she was great the day of making sure I didn't have to worry about a thing! Michael ensures everyone at Funky's and Pinecroft creates an excellent customer experience for their clients. My husband and I have had multiple people tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they ever attended! Thanks Pinecroft!!
