Top 3 Wedding Venues in Indianapolis, Indiana

Today I’m sharing my personal top 3 Indianapolis Wedding Venues that I love shooting at as a photographer!

When it comes to looking for a wedding venue and being a photographer in Indianapolis, IN, there are lots of hidden gems – not just barn style weddings venues, but perhaps barns with a unique twist, enchanted forest style wedding venues, and interesting architectural dwellings that set the scene for your romantic day.

Personally, my style is natural light with warm and romantic tones. I prefer well-lit, warm venues with uncommon themes and details that compliment my editing style and vision, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a modern or moody venue, either. My heart leaps when I see stained glass, funky floors, and long halls with trailing colorful florals.

If you’re looking for a specifically styled photographer, the actual location and space really is a factor for how your images turn out. If you appreciate warmth like I do (obviously!) then I have compiled a list of to 3 Indianapolis wedding venues just for you. 

It took me a while to narrow it down to a list of my top 3 Indianapolis wedding venues, but here they are!
