The solemnization and the recording are two distinct acts (or sets of acts) though. A link in that article points to this Indiana Code:

IC 31-11-11-8
Failure to timely file marriage license and duplicate marriage certificate
Sec. 8. A person who:
(1) solemnizes a marriage; and
(2) fails to file the marriage license and a duplicate marriage certificate with the clerk of the circuit court not later than ninety (90) days after the date the marriage was solemnized;

From that I would say that "solemnization" refers to the ceremony whether it is or is not a religious one.
Right, but the question is whether it applies to both state-implicated ceremonies (which are accompanied by the recording acts) and religious-only ceremonies (which aren't).
