What people are saying about us...

Romantically Perfect

Carol

The Propylaeum was an amazingly romantic place to experience our daughter’s wedding. Our daughter chose this place because of its historical history and the fabulously grand house. The ceremony could be held outside on the lawn, the dinner inside the house, in the cozy and classy dinning room, and the reception in the carriage house...The team at the Propylaeum was professional and extremely helpful with all plans and understandingly patient with any needed changes. I cannot say enough nice things about LaurieAnne, the on-site wedding coordinator. She is amazing! She was so helpful and upbeat. She was calm and ready to help with absolutely everything. She is hands-down the best kept secret in the wedding industry. I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding for my daughter and my new son in-law. I highly recommend the Propylaeum for a wedding celebration. 

Exceptional Venue

Kathleen

The Propylaeum is an exceptional place to host a wedding! The venue itself is gorgeous – from the detailed woodwork and decorative accents in the Mansion to the gorgeous wall of windows in the Carriage House. However, what really makes the Propylaeum exceptional is the staff. They are so accommodating and willing to help you realize your vision for your wedding day. We were coming from out of town and did much of the planning process remotely, but, even with that added challenge, everything was easy and went smoothly. We would highly recommend the Propylaeum!

Micro-wedding Approved

Josh

We rented out the Propylaeum as our wedding venue recently, and let me tell you it was FANTASTIC. It is such a beautiful place to get married. LaurieAnne makes all of the planning for the event easy. If you are getting married, this place is definitely worth checking out.

We stayed at the Propylaeum after the wedding as well and it's a great place to stay. Plenty of space and in a great area around Indy. Janice was fantastic helping with anything we needed during our stay!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the catering situation at the Propylaeum for weddings?

The Propylaeum is happy to partner with Jacquie's Gourmet Catering for all weddings. Jacquie's will work directly with couples on menu options, bar packages, and pricing. The Propylaeum can accommodate plated meals, buffet-style, cocktail receptions, and family style options. While our preferred caterers are the required caterer for all food and beverage needs, dessert can be provided by a 3rd party vendor.  

Will my wedding be the only event at the Propylaeum on the day-of?

Yes! We only allow one wedding per day at the Propylaeum in an effort to not only provide you with our full attention, but to allow full access of the property to each wedding. We want you and your guests to feel as if the mansion is your own home while you're with us, and allowing weddings to have exclusive use of our property during their special day is one way we can ensure that. 

Can I stay overnight before or after my wedding?

Absolutely, and we encourage wedding parties to consider staying the night before to allow enough time to get settled into the space and feel more comfortable.  Our overnight package includes all six bedrooms, early access to begin decorating, and breakfast the next morning.

Where can my guests park?

We have a 45 spot on-site parking lot available to guests, as well as free street parking along Delaware and 14th streets.
