It’s wedding season! For those of you who are planning a wedding for next year (congratulations!), this area is home to several beautiful, functional locations that are perfect for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and also has a wide variety of lodging for family and guests.
Here are just a few ideas to get you started as you’re planning your big day:
For Smaller Weddings
- The Lincoln Chapel: The beautifully restored Lincoln Chapel is located inside Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial. If you’re interested in sharing your big day in a significant, historical location, this chapel is perfect for a ceremony of smaller size.
- Monkey Hollow Winery and Distillery: Nestled in the rolling hills of St. Meinrad, Monkey Hollow Winery is a lovely location for an outdoor wedding accommodating approximately 100 people or less. You can have your ceremony under the natural, flowing canopy of a weeping willow tree or overlooking the lake.
For Larger Weddings
- Corner House Bed & Breakfast: The one-stop shop for weddings, this bed and breakfast offer lodging, beautiful bridal suites, homemade breakfast, stunning country scenery for photos, a picturesque ceremony site, and a newly added event barn for the celebration after the ceremony. The owner also happily provides professional floral arrangement services and with fresh cut flowers, if desired.
- Santa’s Lodge: This venue will accommodate about 300 guests. Here, you can have your wedding ceremony lakeside in the gazebo, dance the night away in the Celebration Room, and then enjoy a good night’s rest after your big day, all in one location. The lodge offers numerous rooms for the rest of the family, too.
