Ritz Charles is a catering company and classic banquet hall in Carmel, Indiana that offers elegant settings for weddings and events. Renovated in 2020, the sophisticated spaces found throughout the venue create an elevated backdrop.

Facilities and Capacity

Ritz Charles features numerous ballrooms in a spacious facility, in addition to two separate buildings on the property, to offer a variety of options. Weddings can begin with a vow exchange in the chapel, which has designated dressing rooms. The understated design with white walls and hardwood flooring provides a template that complements many color schemes. Up to 260 loved ones can be seated in this space. From here, your nearest and dearest can make their way to one of the five ballrooms. These refined blank canvases can hold between 100 and 500 guests. The space can also be reconfigured into a continuous ballroom for galas with up to 1,000 individuals. The multiple rooms can serve as separate areas for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception as well. Couples who want to host weddings with outdoor views can celebrate with loved ones in the Garden Pavilion. Available throughout the seasons, this glass building is surrounded by lush landscaping. It can seat 250 people with a dance floor or up to 500 for a standing reception. The whimsical space is also well suited for cocktail hours and more.

    Wonderful!

    The Ritz Charles was absolutely wonderful to work with. I have a gluten allergy and they were able to provide us not only a gluten free menu, but a gluten free wedding cake which I didn't think would be possible to have without paying an extra charge for it. Megan was amazing every step of the way and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. The day of coordinator was always wonderful and the entire staff was just great. The food was also to die for and I was amazed how good it tasted the day of since they just catered and had to drive downtown. One of the best experiences I ever had and they truly made our wedding magical.

    Ritz Charles's reply:

    Thank you SO much for all of your kind words, Elise! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed everything! We know food can fall low on many priority lists but not here! We are proud to cook onsite even when not at our main campus location and know it goes a long way in the quality. Congrats again!!

    Amazing experience with Ritz Charles

    We recently had our wedding reception at the Ritz Charles Ballroom and I cannot say enough good things about the entire process. We worked with Emily and she was truly so amazing throughout the whole process. She responded to questions in a timely manner, patiently handled multiple changes I threw at her, and was always so helpful and kind. The venue itself is beautiful and was the perfect space for our reception. The food and serving staff was impressive, and the whole process was so much easier for me since they handled everything- including catering, table settings, and decor the day of. They were also the most reasonably priced of all the venues I looked at (and trust me i looked at a lot). We got such an awesome outcome at such a good price and I am so grateful to the Ritz team for making it all possible!

    Ritz Charles's reply:

    Courtney!! Thank you for the kind words!! We love that you loved everything from top to bottom! We know the planning process can be stressful but are so glad Emily kept it enjoyable for you!
