About Us

The Sanctuary on Penn is a venue in Indianapolis, Indiana, with indoor and outdoor spaces for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The venue came to be because of the ownership team’s wish to give couples all that they desire on their wedding day. For this major life event, the Sanctuary team wants couples to avoid having to compromise on anything (they want couples to choose what fits their tastes, wishes, family, and beliefs).

Facilities and Capacity
The Sanctuary on Penn offers a banquet hall among its four event-space choices, and it can accommodate anywhere from four to 300 people for events. There’s a bridal suite, which can double as a place for the ladies to get ready but also for the photographer to stage some cool shots before the ceremony kicks off. The venue’s package offerings cover the following items: altar, audio equipment, photo booth, chair covers, dance floor, decor, furniture, and tables.

Services Offered
The Sanctuary on Penn staff builds a relationship with their possible clients starting at the first walk-through visit. Things progress from there with a review of the couple’s dream wedding items; the happy couple gets a list of cost estimates before the Sanctuary staff works with them on what may be in-budget or what may need to be tweaked. They can pick up the pieces for anything that the couples do not wish to handle (like picking a DJ or setting out their DIY centerpieces). Other services include:

  • Cake
  • Event rentals
  • In-house bar
  • China
  • Linens
  • In-house florist
  • In-house catering
  • Glassware
  • Lighting/sound

The Sanctuary on Penn offers parking spaces and is a wheelchair-accessible wedding venue. For off-peak weddings (typically held January through March and also in December), couples can enjoy a price break on the package cost.

The Sanctuary on Penn got its start as a church that was constructed in 1875. Its interior features an ancient Roman ruin design, while the exterior is traditional and ornate.

  • Evan and the entire team at the Sanctuary on Penn was unbelievably accommodating and helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. Evan met with us as many times as we wanted and was very helpful in walking us through the details of the wedding planning process. We used the officiant, DJ, Chef and Florist through them, and all of them did a phenomenal job! We have had endless amounts of compliments on our venue and how beautiful it was! Thank you Sanctuary on Penn for an unforgettable and amazing wedding day!
