Indianapolis Central Library Wedding Day

The Simon Reading Room | Marble Staircase

This area inside the Indianapolis Central Library is the most historic space inside the current building. The room boasts Indiana limestone, a beautiful gilded ceiling, and the marble staircase this bride walks down with her father. The room is surrounded by a balcony and rows and rows of tomes making this an example wedding venue.

Tradition dictates that the bride be escorted by her father down the aisle. This comes from a time when a wedding marked the union of two families and the bride was "given away." While weddings still join two families they also make the day you form a new family of your own but we have maintained the custom. Ultimately, you can come down the aisle anyway you choose, this bride stayed true to convention and had her daddy walk her down the aisle to her new husband.

Location: 40 E St Clair St, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
