    Simply the best

    Holy Trinity is a beautiful, inclusive, and perfectly located venue. As a same sex couple, it was important that we felt comfortable in our ceremony space. Pastor Tim made us feel safe and celebrated. Not only is the church a gorgeous space, it is perfectly located next to Central Park for a great opportunity for outdoor portraits. We also found the wedding coordinator, Jeremy, to be super nice and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend!

    A Beautiful and Inclusive Wedding Venue Along Central Park

    My husband and I were married at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in October of 2016. We had a very lovely wedding and I highly recommend Holy Trinity as a wedding venue. Holy Trinity is a very lovely neogothic space adorned with beautiful mosaic work surrounding the altar. For many years, Holy Trinity has welcomed couples with inclusiveness and a sensitivity for all, including the LGBTQ+ community. When we were married at Holy Trinity the pastor worked very closely with us to design a wedding service that was personal and meaningful to us.
    In addition, Holy Trinity offers a few options for receptions. Our wedding was smaller in size, and our guests enjoyed cake and sparkling wine in the back of the church near the doors that open onto Central Park. There is also an air-conditioned community room (including a full kitchen) below the church where a larger reception can take place.
    Because of its location along Central Park, it is possible for the newlyweds to leave the church by horse drawn carriage while attendees give them an energetic send off before disappearing into the park.
    Overall, Holy Trinity has the components for a beautiful and memorable wedding day.
