When I began my search for wedding venues, I knew I wanted a place that felt intimate, warm, elegant and unique. Laurel Hall embodied all of these qualities perfectly. On my initial tour of Laurel Hall, I was blown away by its beauty. The entrance was grand, its beautifully maintained interior is classic, and the chapel took my breath away. Laurel Hall provided countless backdrops for beautiful photographs throughout the day. Our guests mentioned many times that Laurel Hall was a hidden gem in Indianapolis, and had no idea something so unique existed here. Due to Laurel Hall’s ornate beauty, we only needed to add florals and votives to complete our wedding day décor. During the evening, we enjoyed all of the spacious ground level rooms both indoors and outdoors. Our guests had a lovely cocktail hour enjoying the grounds on the back patio. We had an amazing dinner inside the conference room, and danced the night away in the solarium. The staff at Laurel Hall completed our wonderful wedding experience. Each representative we worked with was friendly, accommodating, prompt, thoughtful, and flexible. We would highly recommend Laurel Hall as your wedding day venue!
