In the beginning stages of planning my wedding I knew I wanted a venue that was unlike your typical ballroom, reception hall or clubhouse. I specifically remember searching online for a wedding and reception location and discovering Laurel Hall. I instantly called my mother to inform her that I had found the place where I would be getting married. The staff at Laurel Hall went above and beyond all of my expectations which truly made planning the wedding a joy. Nearly every single guest at our wedding commented on the beauty of Laurel Hall. I felt like I had a fairy tale wedding day and you cannot put a price on that!

Set on six acres of land on Indianapolis' beautiful east side, Laurel Hall combines form and function to accommodate your event. The impressive 1916 Jacobean Revival manor house provides a timeless backdrop for any special event, combining history, beauty and character, with helpful modern conveniences.

There are several indoor spaces for receptions, parties and social gatherings up to 200 people. The Ruth Lilly Conference Center is a state-of-the-art meeting space offering a full array of audiovisual equipment, WiFi access and a high-speed Webcast and teleconferencing system. Two elegant dining rooms provide a special space for your meal functions. All areas are air conditioned and heated for the comfortability of you and your guests.

The grounds provide a stunning setting during any season, offering space for outdoor social gatherings, meals or just photography. Originally designed in 1915, the property includes a number of plantings quite rare to the Midwest, brought from Europe by the original landscape architect. A new landscape master plan has resulted in walking paths and a waterfall.
