The outdoor lighting, indoor lighting, tables and chairs were wonderful, and saved us lots of money over using outside vendors.

The Sanctuary is beautiful, WOW that stained glass window, and the acoustics were perfect for our talented wedding musicians. The kitchen was a dream for our caterer to us, and the Parish Hall ROCKED as our party room and dance floor.
