Before the ceremony, wedding parties can use our guest/reception rooms to get prepared for the ceremony in our elegant performance hall, a magnificent former church converted into a non-denominational space. Up to 428 guests can share your special day in the comfort of plush, comfortable theater seating, with state-of-the-art lighting and sound capabilities available for larger ceremonies. We also have an in-house Steinway Series D concert grand piano available free of charge** for couples wishing to add music to the festivities.

After the ceremony, simply head downstairs and hold your reception in our Heritage Hall, with a stage for a DJ or band, wireless microphones for the ceremonial toasts, and seating for up to 250 guests.  We have modern dance floor lighting and sound distributed evenly throughout the hall. Our licensed bar staffed by our friendly bartenders will ensure your guests never go thirsty.
