    This venue is beyond gorgeous. We had our ceremony in the President's Room and reception in the ball room. We hardly needed any decorations because the venue itself is so beautiful. The team at St. Cecilia was awesome to work with and they made our big day go so smoothly. I highly recommend this venue.
