The Bridal Tower

What makes this wedding venue stand out from others in Cincinnati? Brides have told us that the beautiful, private, unique Bridal Tower situated in the old bell tower of the once Old St. John’s Church has been a deciding factor in choosing to celebrate at The Transept.

What Our Clients Say

“My husband and I held our wedding reception at The Transept in March and are so pleased with that decision! The bridesmaids and I had a blast getting ready in the beautiful bridal tower. Funky’s Catering Events staff was wonderful, truly anticipating and accommodating all of our needs for the day. Our family and friends have all remarked on how beautiful the venue was, and we couldn't agree more. Our photos turned out beautifully, thanks to the gorgeous architecture and design, notably the lovely stained glass windows. This was the perfect space for our 150-guest reception, as it felt intimate, warm, and inviting.”
