Why We Like This Place

  • This Portland icon is truly an inspirational setting. Built in 1882, the church was home to many different congregations until the historical society turned it into a nonprofit wedding venue, warmly welcoming couples with any—or no—religious affiliation.
  • It’s a Victorian masterpiece that’s as beautiful inside as out—and that’s saying a lot. Magnificent stained-glass windows, a cathedral ceiling, hand-carved pews and soaring buttresses add gravitas to your ceremony while the organ’s warm tones enhance the mood.
  • The adjacent Kinsman Hall features the same period décor for an elegant reception. A 25-foot ceiling, grand piano, antique mirrors and stained-glass windows create a perfect backdrop for your celebration. And for more intimate affairs, check out the Parlor.
