    Amazing Venue!

    This is the most beautiful venue I have seen. I have spent a year looking everywhere around Indianapolis and this is by far the most amazing and special place I have found. The woman who gave us a tour was very nice and could answer every question. It is a more expensive venue but they have a caterer whose prices more than make up for the difference in venue price. We all got chills when we walked in and saw the beautiful woodwork and vintage decor. We have not had our wedding yet but we have already booked and paid our deposit. They have been very responsive and wonderful throughout the process. Highly, highly recommended!

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Kayle. We are so glad you love the venue, and we are very much looking forward to your big day here next summer!

    Gorgeous venue, friendly staff, great value

    My wife and I could not have been happier with our wedding at Laurel Hall (September 2018). Throughout the entire process, from booking our date to the actual day, the team at LH (especially the events director Inga) were extremely professional, friendly, and flexible.

    The venue is gorgeous--this goes without saying. So many photo ops and our wedding album turned out wonderfully.

    We did our ceremony outside down in the "valley," cocktail hour on the stone terrace, dinner indoors in the large conference room, and dancing in the "solarium." I would highly recommend Laurel Hall to anyone looking for a premium venue in Indy with fair prices.

    Sincerely,
    Oliver

    Laurel hall is the best venue we have worked with. Inga is exceptionally friendly, accommodating, and easy to work with. Despite the incredible elegance of the venue, there is nothing pretentious about the staff. We have worked with Laurel Hall on several occasions and every time has been a great experience.
