The average U.S. wedding costs $27,000.
We think that is $20,000 too much.
By curating vignettes with local artists and small businesses, we can give Cincinnati couples a hand crafted wedding installment for a fraction of the cost of an average US wedding. We offer everything between elopements - grand weddings.

Good ol' FAQ's
Q. HOW IS A CURATED WEDDING ANY DIFFERENT THAN A 'USUAL' WEDDING?
A. It's not. However, we find our curated weddings have different priorities. Curated wedding ceremonies has one gorgeous, dynamic vignette for our couples as they promise love to each other. This gorgeous vignette is star of the show, leaving other decor pieces unneeded. We are firm believers in "Less is More". Why spend $600 on little Mason Jars when you could (for example) get married in front of a giant piece of raw canvas that has been hand painted by a local artists just for you and your partner. A piece of art you can keep forever and ever AND is literally unobtainable anywhere else. ... or we guess you could buy mason jars too.
Q. DO YOU JUST DO CEREMONIES INSTALLMENTS OR CAN YOU DO RECEPTIONS OR EVENTS?
A. We do it all, baby! Some couples wish to have a traditional catholic ceremony and invite us to curate one hell of a reception. Others have their ceremony and reception in the same location, so there's no need to curate additional pieces. We are artists and creators by trade, so bring it on!
Q. DO YOU JUST DO VIGNETTES OR CAN YOU STYLE AND DECORATE THE ENTIRE WEDDING?
A. Again, we do it all, baby! With your ceremony vignette we can easily plan, decorate and style your wedding top to bottom. We are creators and artists by trade, we love it.
Q. CAN I KEEP ANY ELEMENTS OF MY INSTALLMENT AFTER MY WEDDING?
A. Oh goodness yes, we encourage it! Any vintage rental ceremony seating, rugs or chase seating will need to be returned to our warehouse at Queen City Vignette. But pieces that have been curated just for you are available for rental or purchase! You can see the question below to get a better idea.
Q. I LOVED WHAT YOU INSTALLED AT A PREVIOU WEDDING. CAN I USE THE SAME INSTALLMENT ?
A. That depends on the installment. Some couples like to purchase their entire installment to keep for themselves and other choose to rent. For example, you may have seen photos from a couple who commissioned a gorgeous, hand-painted, abstract painting on raw canvas... and on either side were two regal potted fiddle leaf plants... beneath them were three layered Victorian era rugs sprinkled with lavender and eucalyptus ... mmm. NOW, if our couple chose to rent the hand painted backdrop and fiddle leaf plants, then by all means we love to bring installments back to life. But there is a chance that our couple has opted to keep the painting and potted plants for their own home.
