    First Friends Meeting was the most amazing venue to work with for our wedding. The entire staff of First Friends were more than accommodating and helpful. The space is GORGEOUS, and the location is perfection.

    Location: First Friends is located almost exactly half way between downtown Greensboro and friendly shopping center, it is also located very close to Wendover avenue (like 2 blocks away), allowing the venue to easily accommodate a separate wedding and reception location. We could have gotten to anywhere in Greensboro in under 15 minutes from the ceremony.

    Services: The wedding coordinator, Kristina, was AMAZING! I can not say enough wonderful things about her. Not once did I feel she was pressured or frustrated, which was a HUGE relief to someone like me. Her ability to keep a calm demeanor under pressure, her organizational skills, and her planning skills were excellent. Deborah, the pastor, was equally amazing. She is full of love and joy; she was a natural choice for us. I also love that she is open to all wedding celebrations and worked so diligently to ensure our ceremony truly reflected us.

    Decor/Ceremony Space: The sanctuary/meeting room is GORGEOUS. I mean drop dead gorgeous. They have HUGE windows which let in beautiful light, especially for an afternoon wedding. The floor is cork and wood which is just incredible. There is an organ (M.P. Möller, Inc., Opus 10443, 1968) which sounds incredible, as well as a piano. The meeting room itself is a beautiful shade of mint green, but given the amount of natural light it really is very neutral. The entry to the meeting house is beautiful as well. The furnishings and decor are very simple allowing you to really customize the space for your big day.

    First Friends truly embraces the spirit of acceptance, understanding, and simplicity. They are conveniently located, and the space is breathtaking. The biggest perk of the entire place is the staff. They are as beautiful as the meeting house itself.

    I can't say enough wonderful things about having our wedding and reception at First Friends Meeting. They were so open to us having the type of wedding we wanted to have. Anything we needed or didn't know we needed was done for us! Our reception was held there too which made it nice for guests - since they just had to go downstairs. Our caterer LOVED the kitchen and the easy access from the parking lot. He actually did all the prep work and cooking there so it was fresh and not reheated. I have NOTHING negative to say!
