Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Thoughtfully reimagined by the renowned team at Bite Catering Couture, this remarkable 1913 church-turned-event space offers the perfect blend of historic elegance and modern style in the heart of Long Beach.
  • Say "I do" al fresco in the gated courtyard, which is particularly lovely when draped with gauzy curtains, accented with a greenery-draped pergola, and illuminated by glowing bistro lights. Downstairs, the Parlor—studded with columns and boasting original brick detailing— offers a charming setting for cocktail hour.
  • The second floor Sanctuary is jaw-dropping and dreamy. The entrance through a set of gorgeous Arts and Crafts-style glass-paned doors will awe your guests, who will love dining and dancing beneath the breathtaking 30-foot coffered ceilings and soaring windows that flood the space with light.
