Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Created from a palatial 1890 church that rises 20 stories high, this awe-inspiring venue takes your breath away. Its majestic proportions, architectural splendor, elegant chapel, and surprising honeymoon suite, make it a one-of-a-kind event locale.
  • The Reception Hall's ornate columns, gothic windows, 55-foot buttressed ceiling, and spectacular stained-glass window are just the beginning. There's a repurposed bar made from original pipe organ elements, a VIP lounge in the old choir loft, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting.
  • Just when you think it couldn't get any better, welcome to your honeymoon suite. Located underneath the steeple inside Maine's tallest tower, its stained-glass windows, balcony lounge, luxurious spa bathroom, and strawberries & champagne welcome make the perfect end to a very memorable day.
