Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Consisting of two beautifully renovated historic churches, this unique venue has a great Brandywine Valley location and the flexibility to make your event truly your own.
  • Choose between St. Cecilia's, with its Swiss Gothic style featuring a dramatic cathedral ceiling and breathtaking "rose window", or the more intimate St. Stan's, where you'll find a soaring bell tower and graceful arched windows.
  • An on-site boutique hotel offers wonderful lodging for you and your out-of-town guests, and St. Cecilia's lower hall boasts a multi-use space that can host receptions. Both venues also feature outdoor areas that are great for cocktail hours or al fresco celebrations.
