First, I'd like to say that I do not usually take the time to write reviews, but my wife and I felt it was necessary to let folks know how awesome we thought the Indiana Roof Ballroom was!

We knew we were going to end up having our wedding at the Indiana Roof Ballroom within the first 5 minutes of walking into the venue. Its amazing how pretty it is!

Kile was assigned to our wedding and introduced to us by Antonia (I gathered she was the big boss) very early on in the planning process. While Kile put in most of the leg work with us, we saw the entire team, Kile, Jeff, and Antonia, during every meeting. They made us feel like we were the only wedding they were planning for! They outlined the process to make the planning go as smooth as possible during the first meeting, and then communicated with us via email when important dates were coming up. The planning was stress free!!

The meetings were easy and fun! Each meeting had a purpose and was well run. They were flexible and had some great ideas on how to make the day special. They encouraged us to bring our parents and are very knowledgeable about what works and what doesn't.

The day of service was impeccable. From the second we arrived, they made us feel like royalty. They took care of the bridal party and made sure we had everything we could ever want. They made sure the rest of the guests were taken care of with A+ service as well- we've received so many compliments about the service! From the bar service, to the way the salads are presented for dinner, to clean up... Things could not have gone better!

The venue is definitely the prettiest one in Indianapolis. While they could probably get by with average service, they take pride in what they do and it really shows.
Antonia, Jeff, and Craig really do go above and beyond. Kile was so much fun, professional, and really made things as stress free as possible. You will not be disappointed with this venue or the team that runs it!

There simply no other place as magical as the Indiana Roof Ballroom for a wedding. Hands down EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect!
The ballroom beauty and atmosphere are like no other. You can feel the history and the love of weddings past. The entire staff was warm and welcoming from the first time we stepped foot in the door. Antonia's experience is so incredibly helpful. She worked with us to make sure our daughter's wedding was the experience of a lifetime. This goes for the the entire staff! You won't find anything that isn't top notch. The preparation, the food, the service,the staff, the bar, the atmosphere….are all the very best! Our guests (both young and old and everyone in between) can't stop talking about how this was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to and that they will never forget it. They even made the flower girls and ring bearers feel special. Our 10 yr old daughter said she felt like a princess because of the way the server for the table treated her and the other children at the table. We never wanted for anything as they graciously saw to it that we had everything or anything we wanted or needed. We didn't want the night to end! I could write a novel on all the wonderful things the IRB and staff had to offer. It was pure magic; not only for our daughter and her new husband, or my husband and I, but for every single one of our 220 guests. We will never forget that night!

Wow! I can't even begin to describe how pleased I was with the fabulous team at the Indiana Roof Ballroom! My daughter's wedding was not only stunning, but the food was delicious, and the wait staff completely courteous and professional. They made the evening magical for my daughter, as well as all of our guests. We had guests from all over the country, and all over the world. Everyone was blown away by the beauty of the venue, and the calm professionalism of the entire staff. Thank you, Antonia, Kyle, Jeff, Dave, and Scott for making this an evening we will all cherish for the rest of our lives.

I had my reception at The Roof and it was beyond my wildest dreams. The second we got there they were there by my side the whole night to make sure that everything was moving along smoothly, that everyone knew where they needed to be and when, and they made everything perfect. I was blown away the first time I actually stepped into the ballroom because it was so gorgeous. Just absolutely perfect and the staff there are true wedding experts and professionals. If anything went wrong I never knew about it because they took care of it!

Antonia and her staff at the Roof Ballroom were nothing short of AMAZING! Not to mention the venue is probably the most beautiful place that Indiana has to offer. My husband and I are not from Indianapolis, but from the moment we stepped into the ballroom, we knew that we had to be married there. Antonia was very accommodating for all the meetings I had with her prior to the wedding date and I very much appreciated that. She was also very prompt to answer any questions I had regarding pricing, food, lighting, etc.

The food was amazing and all of my guests have been raving about it! The one thing that my husband and I did not expect was the phenomenal service. The rehearsal was a breeze thanks to Jeff and Craig- they really know what they are doing when it comes to coordinating a large group of people and they were always making sure that I was happy with everything. On the day of the wedding, their staff provided the absolute BEST service to us and our guests that we could ever ask for. John was the name of the gentleman who took care of me and my husband all night and he was AMAZING! He made sure we always had a full drink and was quick to get us anything we needed. My grandmother has to eat a gluten free and vegan diet, and when we couldn't find the special cupcake that my cake vendor was supposed to make for her, they were so quick to make her a dessert that she could enjoy and I thought that was awesome. They were extremely accommodating for anyone with a special diet and were quick to provide special meals for people who needed them.

We also had a little blunder with our guest list the day of the wedding and we found out that a family of 7 was not going to be attending. The staff at the Ballroom was quick to switch out a table and renumber so that we didn't just have one empty table at the reception. They took care of everything!

Overall, this was, without a doubt, the best venue I could have ever dreamed of having for my wedding day!

Where do I begin? ... i guess I'll talk about one thing at a time ...
#1) Antonia: this is your wedding planner from your worst nightmare that you cannot get rid of. She not only is hostile to even the bride/groom and family, but she will try to take over and dictate how the wedding will go. Abrasive personality that will run your wedding like a business event. Not very bright, not very professional, but acts surprisingly haughty regardless
#2) Lighting and the facility is great I have to admit. This is what attracted us to the place in the first place. However, have you seen any pictures from two different weddings taken at the indiana roof? Well .... no need, you've seen one wedding there, then you've seen them all. Every single wedding at the facility looks exactly the same. I mean .... it's still nice at the end of the day, if you don't mind the internet or your indy facebook friends posting pics of a wedding that has the very same look and feel regardless of the amount of time you've spent making it your own (best you could do given #1 above)
#3) So a little more than half way through the planning, we had enough. Could not take all the ridiculous restrictions this place has! They abuse the fact that there aren't many venues in indianapolis downtown that can host a big party. Antonia, at this point tried to swindle much more money than the contract would entitle them. Most places would even nullify the contract fees if they were to find a replacement party. I promised to pay all the fair losses from the contract, however she (apparently with little legal suave/moral sense) attempted to make ridiculous claims that their formal written contract could not support. ou can still have a nice facility to entertain your guests with less work on your part.You will just have to sacrifice originality, pride, money and support a corrupt establishment. End of the day, it's about the people at a party than anything else .... i just rather take my peeps elsewhere

We looked at so many venues for our wedding. Luckily, we chose the Ballroom. I know they have done many events here and are professional, but I had no idea how smoothly it would run. This was probably the most professional and best run event I have ever attended. We didn't have to think about anything or get stressed out at all. The staff was so incredible! I cannot say enough good things about them. The food, drinks, lights, timing, everything was awesome. If you are getting married in Indy, go to the Ballroom.
