The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Located in Zionsville, Indiana and just a little north of Indianapolis, the Palomino Ballroom is an elegant facility that is dedicated to hosting special events like weddings and receptions. Featuring three distinct venues, there are indoor and outdoor choices available that are versatile enough to match various wedding themes and desired atmospheres. Whether it's a lavish reception dinner or an intimate ceremony, many different celebrations can be accommodated here, including engagement and anniversary parties as well as cocktail hours and rehearsal dinners.
Grand Ballroom. Including a cathedral ceiling, elegant chandeliers and a large picture window that’s lit with candles come nightfall, this spacious room is 5,000 square feet in size and can hold up to 350 people. A neutral palette of crisp, warm tones gives the ballroom an intimate and warm ambience, making it an ideal spot to host a ceremony or reception. The room provides guests with direct access to the outdoor terrace and bar area as well. In case a little extra space is needed, the ballroom even opens up onto the Arabian Room, providing for additional seating, if necessary.
Arabian Room. A private location just off of the main lobby, the room has alcoves with decorative mirrors, a cozy stone fireplace and enough space to host as many as 60 guests. Both ceremonies and receptions are welcome in this intimate room, which also adjoins the bar area and Grand Ballroom.
Terrace. Just through the Grand Ballroom’s French doors is the venue's outdoor terrace, which overlooks the peaceful Indiana countryside. Manicured gardens, white fences and a few majestic horses serve as rural backdrops to the terrace, which is available for receptions and ceremonies. The terrace also provides western views, so having a sunset ceremony is an option.
What You Should Know
Seating options for a ceremony can be arranged in an informal cabaret setup or as a church-style setup with traditional rows of chairs. Catering is taken care of by the Palomino Ballroom, which includes drinks at the on-site bar as well as the pre-dinner appetizers. For more details about catering and the wedding packages offered, couples have to get in touch with the staff at Palomino Ballroom.
The staff helps to set up an event with personalized and non-permanent decorations, such as flowers for the altar. Couples should contact the wedding coordinator to learn more about decorations. Entertainment must be brought in from an outside vendor and for this, the venue can recommend local services.

- Dedicated wedding coordinators to plan and then execute events smoothly on the day-of
- Access to the picturesque grounds that are ideal for wedding photographs
- Full use of built-in dance floor and raised stage area
