Host Your Wedding In The Place Where Legends Walked

3 Ideal Venue Locations at The University of Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame, the place where legends walk, isn’t just a college campus. With its variety of venues for any size and any budget, the University of Notre Dame is the perfect location to host a wedding – in the place where legends walked. The University of Notre Dame plays host to several different wedding reception venues, including those within a AAA Four Diamond hotel, and other spaces which overlook the historic field of Notre Dame Stadium.

The Smith Ballroom

The Smith Ballroom at the Morris Inn is Notre Dame’s classic ballroom. Gilded in navy and gold, it provides a large, open space under crystal chandeliers and can accommodate 150 to 280 guests, depending on the setup. The Smith Ballroom is located within the AAA Four Diamond Morris Inn. The Morris Inn’s AAA Four Diamond status places it in the top 5% of hotels in the country. It is the only AAA Four Diamond hotel north of Indianapolis, in Indiana. Couples can work with the award-winning Morris Inn culinary team to create handcrafted menus for an unforgettable event. Out of town guests can also take the elevator home and stay in the 132 traditional guest rooms, or 18 suites, located right upstairs from the Smith Ballroom.
