8 Wedding Venues near South Bend

Here is a list of 8 wedding venues that are throughout the Michiana Area. This would include, South Bend, Notre Dame, St Joseph, Benton Harbor and Valparaiso. So if you’re looking for a venue near any of those places, here’s some of my favorite.

This is in no particular order and every single spot is just an outstanding place to experience your wedding day. Each venue is different from the last and I think you’ll find some great places for you to choose. Every single one I have personally worked with, have great teams to help you and none of my couples alerted me of any issues.

Here’s a few of my favorite wedding venues 🥰

 

1. The Allure – Laporte Indiana

The most unique wedding venue in Laporte Indiana is for sure. The Allure has a ton of great things going for it. The ceremony site downstairs is very stunning and also allows you to have a cocktail hour. Upstairs there is a large and unique banquet hall for you and your guests to dance all night in. When you’re choosing a photographer, make sure they are able to light up a dark room. You will love their getting ready suites too!

 

 

2. Notre Dame – South Bend Indiana

 

Are you having a Notre Dame wedding? Then that campus probably has a special place in your heart, and it does for me too. I have gotten the chance to capture some amazing people’s wedding days there. Every single spot on campus is gorgeous, you really can’t go wrong.

There are so many places on Notre Dame Campus that it’s tough to name them all. You’ve got the Notre Dame Stadium, Duncan Hall, Basilica, Notre Dame Avenue, Main Building (Golden Dome), God Quad, Touchdown Jesus… The list goes on and on! Your wedding photographer will help you in finding the best spots for you and your images.

If you get the chance to have a Notre Dame wedding, you’re going to be able to work with Venue ND. These people are amazing at what they do and you’re going to love them!

 

3. St Joe Farm – Granger Indiana

Have you been thinking about having a rustic barn type of wedding? You’re going to LOVE this place as it has it all! If you’re needing a place to get ready, ceremony location, reception area AND a large place for you and your bridal party to spend the night at? St Joe Farm is the spot for you! Seriously, such a great location. It allows you to do and have everything you need all in one place.

I have a lot of fun at this spot!

4. Shadowland on Silver Beach – St Joseph Michigan

 

Have you ever wanted to have your wedding on a beach? How about at a venue with a carousel attached that you can rent out and ride!! There’s also a stunning Lighthouse that you can ask about and take photos inside of! You seriously might want to consider Shadowland on Silver Beach for your wedding day venue. Because this place has all those things, plus an amazing pizza spot right next door.

 

 

5. Aberdeen Manor – Valparaiso Indiana

How would you like to check off a few things from your wedding day list? Maybe you’re looking for a ceremony location, wedding reception, coordinators, catering, decor, and lighting? Yeah, all of that is here at Aberdeen Manor. Plus they have a full on bridal shop connected as well.

You can have your ceremony in the chapel or outside in their garden. Their dance floor has an awesome hanging cake display as well as a “snow fall” effect that can cover your dance floor to make it magical AF!

 

 

6. The Armory – South Bend Indiana

 

Large vaulted ceilings, stunning chandeliers and exposed brick. The Armory is an elegant and modern wedding venue, plus it’s connected to Iron Hand Winery, score!! There is so much uniqueness within this one location. You also have a gorgeous view of the St Joseph River while being just a few minutes away from downtown South Bend!

 

7. Blue Dress Barn

 

The Blue Dress Barn has such a stunning esthetic. The outdoor ceremony locations really offers a unique setting unlike most other places around here. Especially if you go during the season when things are blooming and the colors are popping. The location offers countless spots for a beautiful backdrop to your wedding images.

Inside the barn is where your reception will be held and the drinks will be served. Connected to that is the bridal suite for you all to get ready in and across the ceremony area is the getting ready RV! If you’re looking for a place with a very unique vibe, this is it.

8. The Brick

When I think of an industrial venue, The Brick is the first to come to mind! It’s simple yet very interesting. You have loft ceilings, exposed lighting, brick interior and exterior, it’s the perfect venue which offers an amazing blank canvas for you to build the perfect wedding! One of the coolest things there too is the bar! You have to go through an old bank vault to get to it!!!
