Elegant Wedding at Indianapolis Central Library

Real Weddings

Lauren and Brandon’s elegant wedding was on a late fall day in November at the Indianapolis Central Library. This wedding was all things classic, elegant, and sophisticated.

The wedding party began their day getting ready at the Omni Severin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. The bridal party in the Presidential Suite and the groomsmen in the Loft Suite.

The Ceremony

After that, the wedding party made their way to the Indianapolis Central Library for the ceremony. The wedding ceremony took place in the Simon Reading room. This remarkable room had rich Indiana white oak-paneled walls and two marble staircases, one of which provided the backdrop to the ceremony. The ceremony arch had organic, natural towers made up of white floral and greenery connected at the top by a white ribbon to create the look of the arch. There were white candles placed along the bottom of each tower creating an absolutely dreamy look.

The bride and groom and their wedding party took photos outside the Indianapolis Central Library which offered a series of incredible backdrops.

The steps outside the Library were neutral and offered a classic architectural look that allowed the groomsmen’s black tuxedos and bridesmaid’s champagne dresses to stand out in the most elegant of ways.
