Testimonials for The Willows Event Center

Elegant, Sophisticated, and Perfect For Any Event

Amy Belcher, BrideWe got married at The Willows on 8/11/18. We had such an amazing experience with them! We had our ceremony in the gardens (which is stunning!) and our reception in the lodge. All of the spaces are seriously gorgeous! The staff is so friendly and was always there when I had a million questions. One of their staff members even went with me to the rental place to look at table linens! I was blown away by the whole experience at The Willows. I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride looking for an amazing all inclusive venue in the Indianapolis area.

Amanda KramerThe Willows was absolutely perfect! I worked with Brittney directly most of the time. She was super helpful and amazing. She managed to get everything I had wanted for the wedding. When I walked in on Friday for the rehearsal and everything was set up I almost cried because it was so beautiful! On the day of, everyone was super attentive and helpful. All the guest complimented how delicious the food was. I was ready to give up on venue searching before I found them and I am so glad I didn't!

Molly HorstmanThe Willows tops my list as one of the most amazing wedding vendors and reception venues ever!! As most brides do, I scoped out quite a few reception locations in Indy before making my decision. My sister recommended the Willows because she said it was the best wedding food she had ever had. My husband is a chef, so this was a big deal to us and we decided to check it out! 

From that initial meeting forward, Maryanne and Liz were an absolute pleasure to work with. Their professionalism, warmth, and attention to detail was incredible. They worked with us on everything -- from the timeline and the budget, to the layouts and how all of the decor should be set up for the big day, and they also connect with your other vendors to ensure everything goes smoothly. And they definitely lived up to the amazing food. I had so many guests tell me that was the best reception food ever! 

We are so happy to have chosen the Willows and to have had our wedding in The Lodge - it was the perfect space for the elegant, rustic, and sophisticated October wedding we dreamed about. Thank you so much for everything!

The food is also out of this world! Excellent quality at an excellent price!

Martina Manns Very nice location for weddings, fundraising, or any other special events. They have a lodge by the water and when the weather is nice it is very beautiful. The staff works hard and everybody is always in a good mood. The food is also delicious.
