After meeting Jeff at our first tour of the Carnegie of Columbia Tusculum we knew we had found our wedding venue. He was so sweet and our tasting was so relaxed and fun!The venue has so much character and is such a unique place for a wedding. But besides that everyone that we worked with throughout this process has been completely professional and made this process so easy for us. The food was absolutely phenomenal and we got nothing but compliments. We chose to have a sit down dinner and the service was second to none! Everyone had a smile on their face they all worked as a team and everyone's food was hot and delicious! Susan, the event captain for the evening, was really the highlight of the evening. She made sure we had a drink in hand she boxed food for us to take back to our hotel. She let us meet the chef and give our thanks. She even tended to my 2 yr old daughter and worked her magic because she was happy the whole night it was so sweet. Robert was our bartender for the evening and he was phenomenal as well! Everyone went above and beyond to make our night special from start to finish. They even packed our decor in boxes for us! You can tell that these people take their jobs seriously and love what they do! I HIGHLY recommend the Carnegie of Columbia Tusculum and Jeff Thomas Catering!

Still getting compliments!
This venue was something out of my dreams. So quaint, however able to fit our wedding of around 160 comfortably. If you want something different but historic in Cincinnati, this is your place.

I just wanted to personally thank you all for everything you did to make our wedding so special. Everything looked exactly how we envisioned it, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day! Your staff was a delight and I appreciate you always being available and accommodating. Our family and friends had nothing but nice things to say about the venue, the food, and the service. You guys are the best!

This venue is the most beautiful place ever. It ended up being the only venue that my husband and I toured (after doing lots of online research). The price is unbelievably inexpensive compared to others nearby and we got all day access at no extra cost! There is a lovely bridal suit in the basement and tons of decorations we were offered to use for our reception at no extra cost. Everything was so easy as we navigated through the booking process. We received so many compliments on the venue and how timeless it is while also holding so much history. I am so happy that we were able to book it for our wedding and I wish I could go there. I highly recommend this venue to other soon to be newly weds.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for last week’s Insights Lecture! We are so grateful to you for your generosity hosting us, and we repeatedly heard guests complimenting your beautiful space. The lecture was wonderful and guests enjoyed it immensely. Thank you for all of your help coordinating. You are to be congratulated on a great event and I hope we will have the opportunity to work together on programming again in the future!

I had my wedding at The Carnegie Center this past weekend and it was nothing short of amazing. The venue is beautiful so easy to work with. It's an excellent change of pace from the typical reception hall. Everyone we worked with was so attentive and knowledgeable. Since booking our wedding, we've recommended this space to everyone we meet. Thank you for being the perfect setting for my special day!

Beautiful Venue, my first time photographing a wedding there was last October and I was thrilled with the lighting as well as the excellent architecture which I love incorporating in my work! With it being just down the street from the Yust Gallery and Ault Park it gives you many options to switch up the look and feel of your wedding photos to make them unique to you!
Attended a wedding there last night and it was beautiful. Wonderful setting. Short ribs were amazing and our table staff was excellent. Very attentive. It was a lovely evening for the couple to start their married life. Thanks for making it extra special for them.
