Highly recommend this venue!
We cannot recommend this venue enough! We had our wedding here in August 2020 and could not say enough good things about the management (Adam) and Historic St. Joseph Hall. Adam accommodated our every request and helped us navigate planning a wedding during the pandemic. Adam was extremely flexible, easy going, and all around made our day run so smoothly. With the ever-changing restrictions around the pandemic, Adam was willing to work with us at every turn. Pricing was reasonable and the food was absolutely delicious!! I heard horror stories about other venues, and we are so thankful we chose North Street Events for our wedding! We highly recommend this place!Sent on 12/19/2020

We Couldn’t Have Been Happier!
We didn’t have the best experience as we were getting started, but they got a new GM shortly after. He was absolutely phenomenal. He told us all we needed to know and more. He was also extremely flexible and accommodating. We felt truly valued, and that our wedding was not just another work day for all staff. I would recommend this venue to anyone. It’s such a beautiful venue and a truly great value!Sent on 08/27/2019

Indy's best kept secret!
Historic Saint Joseph Hall was the last venue we toured. We had pretty much already made up our mind about booking another venue, but decided to keep the appointment. We were completely wowed and booked the venue that night. I am so glad we did! While we had some communication struggles throughout the process (the venue was swamped with COVID rescheduling and in the process of hiring additional wedding staff) it had zero impact on the actual wedding day. Adam was very flexible and a great venue and expert for us to lean on. He made our day fantastic. He coordinated with vendors. He made sure everything was perfect. We requested a spicy margarita as our signature drink and he not only made it happen, but it was the star of the wedding. We got so many compliments about it and still get them! When our 8-year-old niece didn't like the dinner options, Adam got her chicken fingers from the restaurant at no cost even though we told him we were happy to pay. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and has so many perks, like the cottage next door and the outdoor terrace - perfect if you're flipping the room. So many compliments about the wedding venue. It was the perfect spot for our day. My biggest complaint is the new person they brought on to assist Adam. I had never met her until our rehearsal as she was recently hired. She wasn't very friendly and it made me wonder why she's working in hospitality. My mother in law asked if we could move the front row of chairs during the ceremony to the back as it was very close to the altar and she was very rude and told us they "didn't do that." Then, a plate sat incorrectly at the wrong table (no big deal) but she argued with my guests that someone was in the wrong spot and made everyone show her the seating chart. I don't know why she didn't just make it work. It was their mistake, but even if it was ours, things happen, why berate the guests? All in all, I would highly recommend this venue. The food was so amazing our guests haven't stopped talking about it! It was beautiful, elegant, and affordable. I can't say enough good things I am so happy this was our venue.Sent on 07/26/2021
