While we love the beautiful snow coming down today, we are reminiscing about one of our favorite fall weddings here this past October! Abby and Nick said “I Do” in the Simon Reading Room, and danced the night away in the Atrium with their closest family and friends. They kept the color palette fairly neutral with lots of ivory & golds. The lighting in the Atrium was perfect that night, and the glass walls created the perfect setting for a golden hour private dance for the bride & groom. As always, we appreciate all of the vendors who pulled together to help create this elegant wedding. Special shout out to Jessica Strickland Photography for capturing these gorgeous images!

With September right around the corner, we’re reminiscing about the beautiful fall weddings we hosted in 2015. While there are several to choose from, we are excited to share with you today the dreamy reception held in the Simon Reading Room last September for the Coffeys. This bride was hands down one of THE most creative that we’ve gotten the pleasure to work with!
It was all about the details for this one. From the paper airplane well wishes to the honey block & sugar cubes for tea, this reception was unique to say the least! Think elegant vintage tea party…
The Simon Reading Room was the perfect intimate setting for the Coffeys to enjoy their night with 100 of their closest family and friends. Guests danced all night, were treated to a delicious selection of cakes to choose from, and happily celebrated the newlyweds! In the words of the bride, “For an old soul like me and the passionate reader that is my husband, the Simon Reading Room was perfect.”
We love looking back on weddings past and are so excited to go into Fall 2016!

The East Garden at Central Library seems to be one of Indianapolis’ best kept secrets! The East Garden is ideal for couples looking for the perfect outdoor wedding who also love the urban feel of being right in the city.
Worried about the weather? (Of course you are, this is Indiana.) No need to worry! We only host one wedding here per night which makes moving the ceremony inside an easy and quick decision that can be made the day of the wedding.
Minimal décor is needed out in the garden, as it is dreamy on its own. The city skyline makes the perfect backdrop for exchanging vows. This space works great for a ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception. You can say “I do'” in the outdoors, then offer your guests refreshing drinks during cocktail hour before moving inside to the historic Simon Reading Room or the modern Atrium for the reception. There are so many options for our garden, that’s just one! We are so excited to continue to use this space to its full potential.
One more thing – If you’re interested in a brunch wedding…..the East Garden might be a perfect fit for you. Reach out to our events team regarding more details about this! We can be reached at 317-275-4200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
