This legendary hotel offers guests five distinctive and luxurious locations to be the backdrop to couples' big days. With three indoor and two outdoor venues, there isn't a lack of venue options at Griffin Gate.

The Grand Ballroom, The Mansion, and Terrace Ballroom all offer guests indoor spaces for weddings and receptions. The Grand Ballroom boasts exquisite chandeliers, soft wall coverings and luxurious carpets. Accommodating up to 700 guests, the 9,570 square feet can also be divided into smaller spaces for smaller and more intimate Kentucky wedding receptions.

With a great view of the meticulously groomed grounds and golf course, this facility is second to none. Paddock Tent accommodates 350 guests in a spacious, permanents outdoor tent with views of the golf course and pool area, and is a wonderful location for weddings taking place from April to October, as there is currently no climate control available.
