Noteworthy Venue Characteristics

These little details make all of the difference.  Check out some of the unique features and focal points that our clients tend to rave about!


The Restored, Oak Bar

Not only do we serve beverages – we serve “wow-factor”!  Our restored, circa 1900 oak bar is a true, historic gem.  The inspiration piece is right out of the Marian College Library of old.  It still had the many staples in the side, which held announcements.  Ron Manning custom built the bar around this piece with beautiful oak and brass embellishments.  He then topped it with stunning, handcrafted walnut.

Original, Pedestal and Claw-foot Cast Iron Tubs

This beautiful feature of our venue has had many a dress-clad bride spilling over the top for fantastic photo opps!  The tubs, which weigh about 475 pounds each and date back to the early 1900’s bring a ton of fun to your event portfolio.



Intricate Stained Glass

Exquisite original stained glass greets you upon entering The Fern of Westfield.  Handcrafted by artisans in the late 1800’s, this piece is one-of-a-kind!  So splendid, the glass was replicated by modern-day artists for the transom over the French doors in the bar.  When the sunlight hits this glass; beautiful and playful images drench the room in wonderful color!  (Talk about another great photo opp!)  Photographers love to shoot in the beautiful reflections these pieces cast in our venue.

Large, European-style Pergola & Patio

When we were creating the “perfect” ceremony space for our Indianapolis brides and grooms, we spared no expense when we hard-scaped our patio in white marble tiles.  This elegant, outdoor space is brimming with foliage and blooms season-round!  And the focal point?  Our large, (and need we say “romantic”), European-style pergola built to house infinite “I-Do’s”.   For wedding and non-wedding events alike, our clients host dinner or dancing under this gorgeous feature. Pick your event date on a night with a full moon and experience the moonlight dancing on the marble and gardens!

Warm & Cozy Events by the Fire

Our fireplace and mantle were carefully constructed to match the original fine oak finishes found throughout the entire building.  Adorned with magnificent onyx, many a bride has been married in front of the fireplace, especially during the holiday season when it is flanked on each side with ten foot high, beautifully dressed Christmas trees!
