The great thing about getting married in Indiana is that there are so many amazing wedding venues to choose from. Being a photographer, I’ve gotten to see so many of these beautiful venues, and it’s always fun to go back to a venue I love! Picking the right wedding venue is so important, so I thought I’d share my favorite Indiana wedding venues.
The Newfields is an art museum with a greenhouse, a historic home, and beautiful gardens that surround the property. It even has several outdoor sculptures created by well-known artists. The great thing about Newfields is that there are a variety of places you can hold your ceremony and reception. Not to mention, all the amazing spots for photos! You can get some lovely portraits in the gardens with the various backdrops and different types of flowers that bloom year-round. I just love the different spaces in Newfields.
The Freedom Barn is a historic barn in Indianapolis. They have a lovely gazebo, a wooded area, and a slab that provides a unique look. The greenhouse nearby is yet another opportunity for great photos. I love the space because every booking helps fund the aftercare program at the HOPE Center. HOPE is an organization that provides support and vocational training to women escaping human trafficking in Indiana and other areas.
Just outside of Martinsville, Rustic Gatherings is a barn that used to board horses for a local farm. They even kept some of the horse stall panels. This Indiana wedding venue offers indoor and outdoor options for your ceremony as well as beautiful farm tables for a reception. They have a variety of décor that you can use to make your wedding beautiful. Personally, my favorite detail is the fun swing hanging from a large tree just outside the barn!
Neidhammer is in a restored 1901 historic building and has many different spaces that couples can use for their ceremony and reception. The Grand Hamilton Theater is absolutely gorgeous with 25-foot ceilings and huge windows that let in tons of natural light. I love Neidhammer because of its industrial look and variety of unique backdrops. My favorite is the exposed brick walls!
There are tons of venue spaces to choose from at Ritz Charles. From the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the Garden Pavilion, you can really make your wedding your own. The Garden Pavilion in particular is an absolutely gorgeous space with amazing natural lighting. This Indiana wedding venue is perfect for both small and large weddings. Ritz Charles is also great because they offer consultations to booked couples during which they can sample their menu, choose table designs, and finalize wedding day details.
With all of these amazing Indiana wedding venues, it can be difficult to choose! Picking a venue that can accommodate your guest count is important, but you also want a venue that fits in with the theme and feeling you’re going for. There’s a lot to consider, but it’s always exciting finding the perfect venue!
It’s always so much fun both shooting at venues I love and shooting at new venues. No matter where you’re getting married, I can capture those wonderful moments for you. I’d love to hear all about your upcoming wedding, so reach out to me!
