"If you are looking for a good old fashioned wedding, this is the place to do it! We got so many compliments on the whole atmosphere of the church."

"The site coordinator was very nice and answered all of my questions thoroughly and in a timely manner."

"Everybody was surprised that a church this historical was also so modern (air conditioned). You did a great job of preserving it and yet keeping it user friendly."

"The setting and rustic feeling of the church made us feel that we had stepped back in time, yet it has modern necessities as well."

"The site coordinator was excellent. She was always willing to let us preview the church when we were planning the ceremony."

"The stained glass windows were beautiful and let in a stream of sunlight during our late afternoon wedding."
