One of the most important elements of planning a wedding is figuring out where the big event is going to be held. Start your search in Indiana. From sprawling estates just outside of downtown Indianapolis to beautiful lodges in Monticello, there's a venue to suit everyone's taste. Here are the 10 best wedding locations in Indiana! 

Heritage Farm, Flora, IN

If you’ve ever dreamed of having a "rustic style" wedding inside a barn built from hand-hewn oak timbers, then Heritage Farm is your place. Listed in 2016 as one of the top 10 Bicentennial barns, it’s not a wonder many people flock to this beautiful 120-acre homestead for a wedding, or even a reception. Guests can choose to stay in the beautifully renovated guest house, a rustic, 1850s log cabin or even a suspended tree house tent! Choose your level of comfort and adventure for a truly unique venue. 

Black Iris Estate, Carmel, IN

For a classy yet elegant wedding location, visit the Black Iris Estate in Carmel. Located just outside the busy downtown area of Indianapolis, it’s hard to imagine that such a quiet, stunning place could exist. It’s as though you’ve stepped outside and into the country, surrounded by beautiful trees and over 13 acres. The estate consists of the breathtaking mansion, gorgeous gardens, and the ceremony itself in the enchanting woods. There are three different custom venues to choose from; however, you can also custom design your venue to fit your needs with the help of one of the estate’s designers.

The Lighthouse Lodge B&B on the beautiful shores of Lake Shafer in Monticello is your next dream wedding destination.

Whether it’s a sunset wedding overlooking the lake or a wedding in the fall with the leaves changing colors in the background, as you stand in front of the mini lighthouse and say your vows, it’s an experience to remember. The lighthouse stands for moving forward and navigating through rough waters while standing tall, making it the perfect symbol to include in a wedding. 

Jones Crossing Banquet and Event Center, Mooresville, IN

The Jones family purchased the former Grace Church in Mooresville in 2007 and turned it into the beautiful 20,000-square-foot facility that is now known as Jones Crossing Banquet and Event Center. In 2012, they added a jaw dropping, one-of-a-kind courtyard that included a large waterfall, 70-inch promenade, top of the line landscaping and sound system. This feature alone has made them one of Indiana’s premiere wedding venues and a must have for every bride. The ballroom is absolutely breathtaking with its high vaulted ceilings and open dance floor! It can be decorated and fitted to suit your needs, from the colors to the placement of tables and more. If you’re getting married in the summer, be sure to check out their quaint Country Chic venue!
