The arrival of August marks not only the closing of summer, but also the countdown to the end of the year. Our August started out hot with lots of big weddings and corporate events, but now, as we say good-bye to summer, we’re gearing up for our busy wedding and holiday season. Keep scrolling to see the best of our events this summer and see what we’re excited about coming up!

Kellam’s Wedding at Palladium

Congratulations to Anica and Chris! This adorable couple had their wedding and reception at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel and Jonathan Byrd’s was honored to cater their beautiful celebration. Love was clearly in the air for these two as they were surrounded by balloons, flowers, and family! Guests munched on some pretty amazing chicken and waffles made fresh on site by our incredible chefs. While guests cut the cake, there was an artist capturing the scene in watercolor. Congratulations to this beautiful couple!

Ransom Wedding at Indiana Historical Society

Regina and Patterson celebrated their marriage in grand style! This couple tied the knot at the Indiana Historical Society this month. Regina started the event with an entrance fit for a queen as she floated down the canal on a gondola.  The beautiful ceremony took place on the canal, followed by a cocktail hour in the Stardust Cafe, and then had their reception under the big clocks in Eli Lilly Hall. Guests partied the night away hopped up on sugar from their adorable candy bar!

Automation Expo

The future visited 502 and it was incredible! We had robots of all shapes, sizes, and functions at the Automation Expo in August.  Some robots transport goods around factories, others were able to use cameras to sort items on a conveyer belt, and the rest just lent a hand.

502 East is a great place to bring multiple vendors and exhibitors for your conference or tradeshow. We can set up booths, aisles, and displays in our ballrooms or in our lobby. Our space is very versatile, and we can make it into wherever your imagination takes you!

Conferences at 502

August has not only been a busy month for us, but for all our corporate clients who had very important meetings here at 502. When you have a large staff, everyone from the CEO to the guy in the mailroom needs to hear the message in order to be on the same page. But where do you go for that much space to have everyone in the same room? That’s when you call 502 to help! We’ve got large ballrooms for your whole staff, and smaller conference rooms for intimate meetings. With free wi-fi and abundant parking on-site, you’ll never want to go downtown for a conference again!

Studies show that as stomachs become depleted, brains cannot focus as well. Additionally, people with a full stomach make better decisions than they do when hungry. Once again, problem solved!  Jonathan Byrd’s serves delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, hors d’oeuvres and snacks for your whole staff so they can concentrate throughout your event so they can make good decisions.

And want to unwind after a full-day meeting? We have you covered there too!  Nothing says team building like Happy Hour! We have bar and beverage services on-site as well so you can help your team relax after a long day.

Holiday Menus

The holidays are the season for giving, celebrating, and enjoying each other’s presence. So why disappoint your employees with a boring potluck in your office kitchen? Improve morale and defy expectations with a holiday meal catered by Jonathan Byrd’s. Your staff will be delighted that you went the extra mile to bring in delicious food (instead of whatever Karen in accounting made!)
