Let’s talk about some of my favorite Indianapolis wedding venues! Searching for the perfect wedding venue can be overwhelming, difficult, and oftentimes stressful. This is understandable because it’s a big deal! The venue you go with will dictate so much of your day. Everything from the vibe, to the decorations to even how you want your dress to look is affected by this decision. With this big of a choice and all of the options that Indiana has to offer with venues, I thought I’d sneak in and share some of my favorite venues.

As a local Indiana wedding photographer, I have learned a thing or two about which venues are the best! So, without further a due, keep on scrolling for some of my most favorite places to celebrate your special day!

01. Laurel Hall

Starting off strong we have Laurel Hall! This venue is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind wedding venue that is perfect for anyone who is looking for a place more elegantly styled. Between its historic landscape and modern beauty, this venue is absolutely stunning. Laurel Hall is held on 6-acres of land and holds a few hundred guests making it perfect for any wedding- big or small!

02. Ambassador House

If you are in search of a beautiful landscaped historic house or heritage Garden then this is the place for you! The Ambassador House holds so much history and charm while offering up to 225 guests and indoor or outdoor seating spaces! This venue is perfect for intimate weddings as well for up to 60 guests in a separate part of the venue so you can get the best of both worlds.

03. Bottleworks Hotel

To all of my Coca-Cola lovers, this one is for you! The Bottleworks hotel is the event space for unique weddings. Coca-Cola recipes were created at this location which entails much history and iconic architecture. The Bottleworks hotel has many different wedding packages to fit everyone’s needs!

04. The Ritz Charles (Garden Pavilion)

If you have never visited the Ritz Charles Garden pavilion, take this as a sign to do so! This venue has one of the most breathtaking gardens and landscapes that I’ve seen in Indiana. If you’re looking for an elegant garden-style venue be sure to check this one out.

05. Indianapolis Arts Center

For all of my creative and unique souls, the Indianapolis Art Center is the perfect place for your wedding day. The Indianapolis Art Center overlooks the White River giving you not only cool artsy bride and groom photos but a stunning river for some landscapes!
