From the very beginning, the staff at Blu Falls made sure we knew that we could ask questions, make suggestions, and customize our package to be truly unique to our wants and needs. Since we wanted to do our ceremony and reception indoors at the same venue, but had a big guest list, they allowed us to do a room change over with a cocktail our in the smaller room in-between. The staff was very accommodating to our unique requests to have a champagne toast during the ceremony! It was untraditional, but it went smoothly and our guests loved it!
Emily, our coordinator, was so helpful, nice, and accommodating. Anything we wanted, she made happen. Truly, every small detail was well thought out and made a top priority for the staff. They were willing to switch around details in the packages to remove items we didn't want and provide us with the details that were important to us. They understand that every bride and groom want their wedding to reflect their values and styles - and they do whatever they can do make that happen!
My favorite part of working with Blu Falls was having the ability to book vendors through my contract with them. My centerpieces, catering, bar, linens, cake, photo booth... all came through one contract. I also had the option to book other vendors through them as well - but chose to utilize a different florist for bouquets, my own photographer, and my own DJ.
I'd highly recommend Blu Falls to anyone in the future! The staff leading up to the day and on the day of the wedding were five-star and I can't imagine there being a greater team!

My former fiancé entered into a contract with Blu Falls in July of 2014 and our engagement was ended in December of 2014. While he was the one on the contract, all money paid was from my parents, totaling $6950. I alerted the venue of the cancellation on 12/8/2014. I was told the owner was out until January, but I would hear something from her son. I did not hear anything until 1/13/2015; this was from the owner herself. I emailed her back asking how much money we had paid on 1/14/2015. I had to send a follow up email on 1/30/2015 due to no response, I heard back on that day. The contract stated that the venue would keep the deposit; all monies paid, and require a $3500 cancellation fee, which the owner waived.
Hoping to salvage the money my parents lost, I remembered that upon booking, the owner mentioned another couple who had to cancel due to a broken engagement and she was allowing one party to use the amount toward another event in the future, so I proposed a similar solution in my situation. She agreed, however, stated I would need to book event within a year. Unfortunately, I will not have an event that requires a venue of this size ready to plan within a year. With that not being an option, I suggested that she keep $4500 (deposit & amount of cancellation) and return the excess on 2/23/2015. I did not hear back so I reached out again on 3/18/2015. She declined and referenced the contract cancellation policy on 3/26/2015. While I do understand that my former fiancé entered into this agreement, unfortunate situations do happen and it was my hope that I would receive better customer service and kindness. She continues to say that she is protecting her business by keeping all money paid and I do understand that she may not be able to re-book this date; however, I did alert them 10 months prior to the event. It does not cost over $4500 to simply book their venue for a day, so I do not understand why she thinks my request in unreasonable.

I did enjoy the venue. The food was amazing and Jessica and Cindy were always professional. I'd recommend an early time if you would like your guests to be able to enjoy the food and the cake though. Not super timely with service or the cake service.

Everyone was so helpful and kind throughout the planning process. I can’t tell you how many emails I sent back and forth to Jessica – too many to count. She always listened to my ideas and now that I think about it never said they couldn’t do anything that we wanted. Every idea I threw at them they made happen! With my bridal tunnel vision on I am sure a few ideas I had were a little on the crazy side and I am surprised Jessica didn’t try to reach through one of our emails and shake me.

The day of it rained right about the time of the ceremony and of course we were outside. They were very kind to keep an eye on the radar and there was a short 15 – 20 minute no rain window that we waited for.

It was nice to be able to concentrate on getting ready and not setting everything up. A few months prior to the wedding we had picked out linens, setting, chair sashes and everything else that goes on the table. A few days before the wedding I emailed Jessica the seating chart and when we arrived on the day of everything was set up and ready to go.

I would definitely use/recommend Blu Falls for an event again. Every time I drive by the venue all I can do is smile because of all the fun we had!! I can’t possibly list all the awesome things Blu Falls and Jessica did for us in this review, but believe me they are A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!

Blu Falls turned out to be a WONDERFUL location to have a wedding. We choose Blu Falls for its proximity to Indianapolis & Ohio family along with the all in one location. As a professional designer I like the updated qualities of the venue that weren't "additional cost." From the hardwood floors to the Chiavari chairs to the bridal sweet. Our guest are still complimenting us on the venue & the food. Thank you Blu Falls for a unforgettable evening!

We are so happy with our wedding at Blu Falls! Our ceremony was outside, with the gorgeous waterfall garden and gazebo. The landscaping is great, and the photos we took outside were stunning. Our reception was in the main ballroom, which includes chandeliers, french doors, fantastic natural light, and wooden floors. Aesthetically, I couldn't have been happier. Our guests - to this day - compliment how delicious (and hot!) the food was. With 140+ guests, we were impressed with the consistent quality. The staff was incredibly helpful and nice, from planning assistance to last minute requests the day of the wedding. One thing I would warn about, we did have an issue with the table set up. One of my requests were not met with the chair set up. Blu Falls charges $100 to assign a number to a table, so it was disappointing that the level of service received did not match the extra charge. Overall, with the visual appeal and large staff we thought Blu Falls was a great value for Indianapolis weddings!

Blu Falls was a great ceremony and reception venue!- they had everything we needed and didn't let our details get lost in the mania of wedding season. There were a few blunders the weekend of the wedding: Fallen fences due to storms and lights that we never asked for- BUT after expressing my concern, all was fixed. The main reason everything goes so well would be because of Valerie Howard- she is the coordinator of the Event Center and is amazing! She is with you every step of the way and is always there to help! I would highly suggest having a wedding here.

Their outside venue for a ceremony is WONDERFUL- but if it rains they have a back up room! Perfect for any bride!
