Elope In Indy Wedding is located in downtown Indianapolis, offering Officiants and locations for simple, affordable, same-day, short notice, justice of the peace style elopements. In Indianapolis, the City-County Building no longer offers Justice of the Peace or courthouse weddings. This is why we have a centrally-located office, with our Marion County Marriage Officials on-call to serve couples 7 days a week. Want a bilingual wedding? We have Officiants who are natural, fluent spanish-speakers (bodas en espanol indianapolis, jueces de paz en indianapolis, casamientos civiles indiana). As of October 6th, 2014, LGBTQ Weddings are now legal in Indiana. We proudly serve same-sex couples, just as we serve everyone!
Couples travel from various locations for our services due to the convenience and affordability; In Indiana, we have couples visiting from Fort Wayne, Evansville, Anderson, Richmond, New Castle, Muncie, Marion, South Bend, Elkhart, Goshen, Warsaw, Wabash, Valparaiso, Michigan CIty, Logansport, Kokomo, Columbus, Rockville, Terre Haute, Sullivan, Seymour, Brown County / Nashville, Clarksville, Madison, Lafayette, Batesville, Bedford, Vincennes and Bloomington.

Our Kentucky couples come from as far away as Lexington, Frankfort, Louisville and Bowling Green.

Our downtown location is in Fletcher Place, just a few blocks from the Marriage License Office in downtown Indianapolis. Available seven days a week, between 9am and 7pm, we can accommodate up to 15 guests.

Have your small, simple wedding on the Canal! You can have up to 10 guests for a pop-up wedding (additional guests may require a special permit from the City) There are a few spots, such as the Ohio Street Basin and its beautiful fountains, or the Walnut Street Basin that offers a beautiful setting for your special moment and photos. Just keep in mind that these are public locations, so your preferred location will include pedestrians, runners, segways, families and bicyclists!
Locations such as the Waterfront Pavilion in White River State Park (see pictured above) provide spectacular skyline views. They allow up to 20 guests for a pop-up wedding (additional guests may require a special permit). This location provides a bit more intimacy and less foot traffic, but you still may encounter a few pedestrians and bicyclists.
SERVICES OFFERED: Elope In Indy (Agency) agrees to provide any Client who has submitted and paid for a reservation through our website with a qualified Wedding Officiant / Marriage Official / Celebrant, authorized to legally solemnize marriages in the State of Indiana. Our Officiants will only perform marriage ceremonies in accordance with all applicable local, state and federal laws. In some cases, we can also provide additional services, such as a venue, photography, horse carriage, gondola or limousine for an additional fee. Changes requested before or at the time of your reservation, including, but not limited to, additional guests, change of location, date or a request for additional services must be requested in writing in advance of your reservation date and the appropriate fees must be paid immediately. Additional services cannot be guaranteed and/or delivered without appropriate written request and immediate payment.
CLIENT'S DUTIES: The Couple understands that they must obtain and provide a valid Indiana Marriage License at the appropriate jurisdiction for which the ceremony will be performed to their assigned Officiant to review and execute on the day of the ceremony. The Client has been informed and fully understands that if a valid marriage license is not presented with government issued identification to the Officiant before the ceremony is performed, the Officiant cannot perform a marriage ceremony. The Couple and their guests agree to acknowledge the services being provided by the Officiant in a dignified and respectful manner. The Officiant reserves the right to cancel this agreement at any time for any reason (including the day of the event,) and retain a reasonable fee and all expenses, if it is due to clients' and/or clients' guests behavior, actions or inactions. Aggressive, abusive, rude and/or obnoxious behavior will not be tolerated towards the Officiant, any Agency staff or subcontractors.
DELAYS, LATE FEES & RESCHEDULING POLICY: Clients and all other vendors make every effort to adhere to the start time(s) outlined in this Agreement. We block out 30 minutes to serve every couple, but we are not offering a 30 minute wedding ceremony. 30 minutes is merely enough time to marry you and complete paperwork. Delays of up to, but no more than, 15 minutes past the scheduled Ceremony start times will be accommodated without any additional fees. If you are running late, please call and notify the Agency immediately. Weddings delayed or extended more than 15 minutes, for any reason, will be charged an additional $25 late fee. If the event is delayed for 30 minutes or more, an additional $25 will be charged, and again every 15 minutes thereafter. As the Agency and its associates may have other commitments that same day, if your ceremony is delayed more than 45 minutes, we reserve the right to reschedule your ceremony to the Agency's next available opening. The Client acknowledges that the Officiant or other contractors are not required to remain on the premises and/or provide any additional services following the ceremony and completion of your marriage license.
CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY: All sales are final. Your prepayment for Elopement / Officiant services with Elope in Indy is a non-refundable Retainer to secure a specific date, time and location and the requested services. Rescheduling for events postponed due to inclement weather shall be accommodated whenever possible and are subject to availability. This Agreement cannot be cancelled or modified except in writing by the Client and the approval of our Managing Director. Any exceptions to this policy can only be approved on a case-by-case basis and at the sole discretion of our Managing Director.
