Garden Weddings

Ashley Kyle-4 Ceremony-0090

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.
