Very happy with our experience, excellent event coordinator!
We had an overall great experience hosting our wedding reception at the Cathedral Room at St. Nicholas. We got married at Heinz Chapel and did not want our guests to pay for parking. Since the Cathedral Room was only a block away from Heinz Chapel and since they provide free parking (very rare in the city) it was the best fit for our needs. Another big factor as to why we chose the Cathedral Room at St. Nicholas was their event coordinator, Stacie. When we initially toured the venue and met her we immediately felt that we would be in good hands if we decided to host our reception there. She was excellent to work with! We really felt like she cared about the couples she works with and was always available to answer questions and provide her opinion on different things if we asked. A few months before our wedding there was an issue with parking at the venue. As any bride could imagine, such a big hiccup so close to the wedding made me immediately stress out! But Stacie quickly helped us to find a resolution and made us feel like she had our backs no matter what. Our guests had plenty of parking and there was not an issue at all. Stacie also put into place new policies that would prevent this same issue from happening to another couple. She is truly a huge asset for this vendor!! She was as involved as we wanted her throughout all the planning and was always quick to respond. She is very friendly and took the time to meet and chat with our parents. Another great thing about hosting our reception here was that at the end of the night we did not have to clean up a thing! They gathered all our decorations after the guests left and placed them in a secure location for us to grab the next morning. It was so nice for our families not to have to worry about packing anything up. The only complaint I would have is the limited number of caterers they allow you to use. While it all worked out with the caterer that we used, we really wished we had a few more options. However, at the end of the day, we were very satisfied with our decision to have our wedding reception at the Cathedral Room at St. Nicholas. Thank you again, Stacie, for all your help!!Sent on 07/12/2019

Stacie was very helpful in planning our reception start to finish. She was quick to respond to any questions. The Cathedral Room is great for any bride that wants to decorate the way she wants as the room is a blank slate! We had plenty of room for 220 people to move around.Sent on 09/22/2018

Besides the high ceilings, open space, and blank slate that the Cathedral Room offers, their best asset is their wedding coordinator, Stacie. Stacie is, without question, the best in the business. She is organized, thorough, and genuinely pleasant. She is on top of her game throughout the process. She ensures brides are on track to meet the rigorous timing a wedding demands, from booking vendors to planning details specific to each couple's wedding. My husband and I fell in love with the "make it your own" space the Cathedral Room has to offer, but what sealed the deal was Stacie's coordination of our wedding. Everything came together beautifully and we could not have had a better wedding reception.Sent on 08/15/2018
The Cathedral Room at St. Nicholas is an amazing venue to photograph for any type of event being held there. I had the opportunity to capture some amazing photos of a wedding reception being held at this venue. The staff was amazing and very accommodating with whatever I needed to get the right angles and shots.The surrounding area of Oakland also makes for great photos during any time of the year. I highly recommend the Cathedral Room for its dedicated staff, amazing food and spacious venue. John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
This is our favorite Wedding Venue to film at! Lighting, space, and timing are the key foundations in creating a high quality film and St. Nicholas nails them all! We especially love working with Stacie - she is simply wonderful! :) - Steady Creek Cinema, LLC
