Maggie & Brandon — Minted






There are two parking garages within a 5 minute walk of Somerhaus (listed below). If you're staying downtown, we also highly recommend either walking or taking a ride share, especially if you plan on drinking!

Mercer Commons garage is two blocks or a 4 min walk. The name is a happy coincidence, but you do get brownie points for parking here!

Washington Park underground parking lot is one block away, or a 2 min walk from the northeastern elevator.

what's the dress code?

We ask that you wear semi-formal attire such as a cocktail-length dress, dressy separates, a suit and tie, etc. Please no jeans. We highly recommend guests to bring out their fun colors to match the vibes of Somerhaus (take a look at the venue website!), but the bride would like to be the only one in white.

Are Kids/Plus One's Invited?

We would like to keep this special day to our closest family and friends and provide an opportunity for everyone to have a fun, carefree evening. As such, we ask that guests refrain from bringing kids or plus one's unless they are expressly included on your invitation.

we're coming in from out of town. what should we do before/after the festivities?

Firstly, thank you for making the trip! There is so much to do in Cincinnati, you will have no issue filling your time. We've included a few suggestions below:


  • Findlay Market - this is an attraction and food spot all in one! Findlay Market is an institution in downtown Cincy, home to a diverse group of vendors selling produce, seasonal goods, desserts, and more. There are several great restaurants inside/in the area to sample.
  • The Eagle - some of the best fried chicken around. There is an OTR location just steps away from Somerhaus.
  • Jeff Ruby's/The Precinct - for anyone who fancies an indulgent steak dinner.
  • Montgomery Inn or Eli's BBQ - two very different options for great BBQ. Fun fact: Maggie became slightly obsessed with ribs around the age of 10.
  • Some local specialties: Skyline for Cincinnati Chili, Graeters for the best ice cream, Larosa's for pizza.


  • Urban Artifact - this is Brandon's favorite brewery of all time. The brewery is in the basement of an old Baptist Church. Its a great spot if you like a fruit beer!
  • Rhinegeist - a Cincinnati staple with a variety of drinks from beers to ciders, there's bound to be something for everyone.
  • MadTree - another local brewery with fantastic beer and food. There is a taproom (The Alcove) just a 3 minute walk from the venue.
  • Literally any other local brewery/taproom. We love a good beer, and Cincinnati is full of them!


  • Newport Aquarium - spend a day in Brandon's shoes, fawning over the fishies and other aquatic marvels. Seriously, we visit an aquarium everywhere we go. We even plan trips around interesting aquariums!
  • Cincinnati Art Museum - a great way to spend a morning or afternoon, the museum contains thousands of pieces including rotating exhibitions. Its also 100% FREE.
  • The Banks & Newport on the Levee - take advantage of the nice weather to explore the Ohio and Kentucky sides of the river! Explore The Banks where there are ample options for food and drink, then take a walk over the Purple People Bridge which will bring you directly to Newport on the Levee.
  • Catch a sporting event! Sports are big in Cincy from baseball and football to the cities new(ish) soccer team. We cannot guarantee your preferred outcome to any game you may attend!
