Most everyone is familiar with the traditional folklore of what a bride should wear for good luck when she walks down the aisle.
But we have found the sixpence is oftentimes forgotten.

Just like our namesake is sometimes omitted from such a well-known rhyme, we began to recognize the lack of elevated and aesthetically driven venues in the Greater Indianapolis Area. Here at The Sixpence, we aspire to fill that void.

Our venue is thoughtfully designed and expertly built with your experience in mind. Our spaces allow you to create the wedding or event you've been dreaming of while serving your every need.

The Sixpence Story

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue—and a sixpence in your shoe.”

As a seasoned photographer who has shot more than 300 weddings, I’m no stranger to the wedding industry. I understand all that can go into planning a wedding and finding the perfect venue to uniquely reflect you + yours.

Over the last 4 years of photographing weddings, I’ve traveled the world to capture love in some of the most alluring spaces. Exposure to these types of venues prompted my vision for a distinctive, elevated venue in my hometown. 

Together, my parents and I worked to create something truly special in a place so dear to our hearts. The Sixpence is for those that want the freedom to shape the venue of their big day into their own. We cannot wait to host your wedding or next big event and facilitate your vision.

I’m Shelby, the co-founder & Designer of The Sixpence.
