    BEAUTIFUL AND MAGNIFICENT! AMALIA AND PASTOR TERRY ARE THE BEST HANDS DOWN. MANY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT HOW BEAUTIFUL THE WEDDING AND RECEPTION WERE. THEIR KITCHEN IS LIKE A RESTAURANT, THEY HAVE EVERY THING YOU NEED. WE LIVED IN PASADENA OVER 35 YEARS AND NEVER KNEW THE CHURCH EXISTED, SO GLAD WE FOUND IT. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE SANTA ANITA CHURCH!

    We had our marriage ceremony at the Santa Anita Church and we are so very happy that we did. The entire team there is a joy to work with, including the video and music folks. We decided on that site for it's beauty, but in the end, it was the ceremony and Rev. Keenan that made our big day extra special.

We have worked with the wedding coordinator, Carolyn Simon. She was so helpful, and professional, as well as warm and friendly. The ceremony at the Church was touching and made for a really special event. The lighting was gorgeous, as well as the Tower. There are many places to do bridal portraits around the property, which is a plus for us. The dressing room for the bride is a nice touch, and makes for great "getting ready" images.
