Thomas Caterers of Distinction is very excited to announce that soon we will be the proud new owners of the Beautiful Oak Hill Mansion and its surrounding property. Our reputation for special event venue design and management has become respected all over the country and we are especially excited that this historic building has become the next member of our family. Our goal is to create a stunning event atmosphere for wedding receptions, corporate events and all types of special occasions. Black Iris Estate will be like nothing else in the city of Carmel or the surrounding area.

Oak Hill Mansion will be closing for renovations January 2016 - April 2016 and we are strongly aiming for Black Iris Estate to reopen early May 2016.

THE Perfect Wedding Venue

We recently had a wedding at Black Iris with Thomas Caterers and it was even better than we imagined! We had our ceremony in the Willow Chapel and the reception inside. Throughout the entire planning process, the staff was friendly, professional, and timely in our communications. They were also responsive to any and all tweaks and changes we brought up throughout the process. On the day of the event, they made our entire day completely hassle free and handled everything perfectly. Our dinners for the reception were actually BETTER than when we had them during the tastings. Overall, we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend Black Iris and Thomas Caterers for any couple looking at venues in Indianapolis.

Our wedding at Black Iris Estate was everything we wanted it to be. The grounds are beautiful, the service staff was professional and extremely helpful and the food was fantastic. Our day was perfect!!! Thank you Thomas Caterers for doing such an amazing job. We will never forget our special night for as long as we live

The mansion and grounds have been completely transformed and updated. We booked at the start of their renovation and were absolutely impressed with the results. The outdoor wedding site behind the mansion is one of the most beautiful outdoor venues I have ever seen...our photos are spectacular. With the flexibility of moving the wedding into the ballroom for inclement was a no brainer. The ballroom is stunning and the other rooms are beautiful. I would say you have to see it to believe it. This review was from the mother of the bride.
