The capital of the Hoosier State sits right in the middle of the heartland. Indy is famous for hosting huge one off sporting events and concerts but it has such a charming array of neighborhoods as well. This couples with the eclectic downtown to make for the perfect wedding day of style and hometown feel.

The original theater is almost 100 years old now and housed 1,500 seated guests. The images online are amazing but no prices are listed.
