New Wedding and Event Venue!

(Folktale GREENWOOD)

Busy! Weddings, Wedding, And More Weddings!

It has been a while since I updated my blog but I had good reason. It’s been CRAZY Busy! Weddings! Weddings! And MORE WEDDINGS! Today I want to talk about my newest venture with a new and upcoming Venue in Greenwood, Indiana called FOLKTALE GREENWOOD!

This new wedding and Event Venue is something that is going to blow the community away. There is nothing quite like Folktale in this area and we are excited to bring a new historical venue to Greenwood. Of course, weddings will be our main goal but we also will host events of any kind. We recently had our FIRST Micro Wedding on April 16, 2022.  We were so excited to show this beautiful wedding venue off and the day was perfect. The clouds cleared, the sun came out and it was a beautiful day! 

Zoey and Karric chose Folktale because they wanted something different and unique for their wedding day. But they also wanted to have a smaller, intimate wedding but with all the BIG wedding events that go along with it.  They chose our 4-hour Micro wedding package that included full use of the venue and the property, tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces, and beverage service.

Indiana Weather, Right?

They had about 45 guests and because Indiana has so unpredictable weather, they chose to have their wedding ceremony inside as well as the reception. Our main reception room can hold up to 60 people seated at tables and up to 75 seated in chairs.

To make the room flip quicker and easier we set up half the tables and had 5 rows of chairs for immediate family.  We created an aisle for the couple and bridal party to walk down and they chose to use our add-on services and had an officiant and a Photographer! That’s right…we have services that you can add to make your wedding planning even easier! 

We have some incredible vendors that we highly recommend and you can literally “one-stop-shop” at our venue. We provide Wedding Planning, wedding coordination, officiants, Photography, DJ, Floral, Cake, Videographer, Bar, Catering, and wedding décor rentals. We only recommend the cream of the crop to make your day flawless and memorable. 

Addison Blaise Photography was chosen and she did a beautiful job capturing the ceremony and family photos.

What About The Food & Drinks?

Zoey and Karric chose to use City Barbecue to cater their reception and it was delicious! City Barbecue arrived 30 minutes before the event and set everything up including chafing dishes and warmers.  We always provide a water station with glasses for Micro-weddings along with Cupcakes or a cutting cake for all guests!

Zoey and Karric had Nothing Bundt Cakes for their guests and if you’ve ever had those delicious little cakes then you know they were snapped up quickly!

Officiant services were provided by Folktale’s in-house wedding planning service, Just the Two of Us Wedding Services! We created a Custom script for Zoey and Karric that they had a hand in creating as well. It’s important that your ceremony script reflect you and your style and beliefs. They added a unity ceremony called a Wine box ceremony.  Our website has a page devoted just to Unity ceremonies so definitely check that out.

The weather was so nice we were able to place a table outside on our patio for the bride and groom and their bridal party to enjoy. Folktale Greenwood is located at 243 S Madison Avenue. The owner of Revery restaurant, Mark Henrichs, bought Folktale also known as the Machledt House and had the vision to create a venue that was different, unique and also a place to hold summer events.

He and his wife Katie, have poured their blood, sweat, and tears into renovations and the transformation has been nothing short of outstanding! Katie really turned the bridal suites into a picturesque, wedding magazine bridal suite oasis! Lots of seating, light, custom window treatments, and Salon-style seating with lighted vanities to get pampered! Folktale boasts two HUGE Bridal suites and a private bathroom with a private staircase as well. If the bride and groom do not want to see each other prior to their wedding that’s never a problem here.

The groom’s rooms, yes they have 2 as well, are located in the back of the house and they have 2 private staircases and their own bathroom as well. The guys have leather furniture, a dartboard, access to their private patio, a poker table going in, and a large screen tv with a gaming station. It’s going to be very reminiscent of the RAT PACK from Vegas! Humidor with cigars, closets for hanging those suits, and bourbon available for celebratory toast!

We also have a gorgeous bar with full bar service. 4 Patio areas outside, private parking for the bridal party and immediate family, plenty of parking for guests, a kitchen for outside catering, dining area to set up buffet or cocktail hour service. Our outside area can easily host 400 people! From the crystal chandeliers to the photogenic Staircases, balcony out front for stunning pictures, working gas fireplace…Folktale hits the mark on everything you need for your wedding day.

The history of this venue dates back to 1826. It has a Colonial feel with many touches of modern-day throughout. We allow you to bring all your own vendors with the exception of the bar service. Due to licensing and insurance, we do require that all events utilize our bar service if needed.

All wedding events include tables, chairs, full access to the entire venue and grounds, rehearsal access, use of bridal/grooms rooms, catering kitchen, and 25% off at Revery for your Wedding Rehearsal dinner for up to 25 guests. Need Catering? We can provide that! But we do MORE Than weddings and micro weddings at Folktale. We have hosted a Bridal shower, a birthday party, and a Benefit to raise awareness for Brain Cancer patients. This venue is here for any event! Bridal showers, graduation parties, Baby showers, anniversary parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Company Parties, Business Networking, and much, much more.

Folktale will offer some outstanding Summer and fall events as well. Food truck, concerts, picnic nights and will be open for lunch during the summer and fall!  Check us out on Facebook and Instagram and hit that LIKE Button!
