Where to Elope in Indy!
A Wedding Officiants incomplete guide to where you can have a simple wedding.
Elope at the ARTSPARK
The Indianapolis Arts Center in Broad Ripple is home of the ARTSPARK. The ARTSPARK is a beautiful, interactive arts and nature exhibit open to the public to enjoy from dawn till dusk. You can get all the details about the location by clicking here.
If you are looking for simple place to exchange vows, just the two of you, or with a photographer, this is a great option! I have had several couples tell me this is a place they went for their first date or someplace they like to walk regularly. The Crooked House is always a memorable spot!
The ARTSPARK is free to use, but I always recommend making sure there is nothing else happening at the same time you want to elope. The park is used for concerts, festivals, summer camps, and, of course, art classes! If you are planning a formal wedding, you can also rent the Arts Center as a formal wedding venue.

Jeff and Jenn recently chose a beautiful Saturday evening to elope and local Indy Photography Larry Gindhart was there to capture it all. Please check out Larry's website here: https://www.gindhartphoto.com/www.gindhartphoto.com.
I always say you can take get married anywhere and then take pictures everywhere. Some backdrops are better for ceremony pictures than others. Larry chose this location because it's a great neutral backdrop for the ceremony and provided a flat space to make the signing of the marriage license pretty.
I love being able to provide suggestions for elopement locations. It's a popular question! Where can we elope! My disclaimer is: I am giving you suggestions. You still need to do your own research and check with the location to make sure it's available to the public that day with no conflicts. Most of my suggestions are free to use and outdoors. If it rains, I strongly suggest having a back up plan.
My fee to officiate your elopement ceremony is $150. You need to obtain your own marriage license from your county clerk.
