1. Biltwell Event Center – A Charming Industrial Wedding Venue

Biltwell Event Center in Indianapolis is a fantastic choice when considering where in Indianapolis you want to wed! The building was first built in 1922 and served as a window and door factory in the roaring twenties and was later restored in 2014 to a charming wedding venue! Overall, this venue offers seven different rooms which you can see here. I love it’s sturdy hardwood flooring, brick walls, and unique original features and details that they’ve kept. If you want to see a glimpse of what a wedding at Biltwell could look like, check out Megan and Matt’s wedding that I captured here!
