Amazing, Unique Venue
Elli, John, and all the Neidhammer staff went above and beyond for our wedding day. From the beginning everyone was friendly and incredibly helpful. We loved our tour so much that we booked with them on the spot! With the exposed brick and beautiful lights, the space has that unique, timeless look we wanted. Even with the unpredictability of COVID, planning was not stressful and there was plenty of flexibility to create the best accommodations for our guests. Everyone that joined us on the special day raved about how amazing everything was to them. I couldn’t have asked for more and am beyond happy with Neidhammer for helping us to have a truly memorable wedding day!Sent on 10/30/2020

One of a kind
Classic, unique, and professional. The Neidhammer is a beautiful venue and one-of-a-kind in Indianapolis. We knew it was the choice for us as soon as we visited. The staff are professional, accommodating, and friendly. They make you feel like family and are incredibly easy to work with. Their policies on catering and vendors are helpful and made for the benefit of the client. John and Elli work to make your day the best it can possibly, and there are a variety of options in planning to suit any bride and groom. An added perk, you'll leave with incredibly stunning wedding photos, as the exposed brick and lighting are incomparable.Sent on 05/28/2020

In your opinion, what makes Neidhammer unique? The culture. It’s unique, and it comes from the ownership down. We’re different than other venues and coffee shops. It’s more about family and community, and I feel like that’s how things should be! This is definitely my second home!
What is the best piece of advice you have for brides-to-be? Enjoy your day and don’t sweat the small stuff! Things will happen, but at the end of the day you’ll be married!
In your opinion, what makes Neidhammer unique? We are not a “bridal mill.” So many of our brides have told us that we feel like family. To this day, when one of my brides that I’ve worked with goes down the aisle, I cry. That care and depth of planning sets Neidhammer apart from other venues.
What is the best piece of advice you have for brides-to-be? Two things: 1.) Before you book your first vendor, know your “Oh HECK No” budget! 2.) Book your venue, your photographer, and your DJ in that order. Book them all within the first 90 days. Everything after that is cake!
In your opinion, what makes Neidhammer unique? The natural light that the building offers is unmatched! It is my favorite part about the building in general! We also offer some amazing and thoughtful alcoholic and non-alcoholic bar selections which I think set us apart!
What is the best piece of advice you have for brides-to-be? Make sure to get plenty of pictures! This is a day you’ll want to remember always! Oh, and wedding insurance, definitely get wedding insurance!
