Facilities and Capacity

The Emporium offers an available bridal suite in the Chapman House adjacent to the building for an extra fee. The beautiful, quaint space of the Bella Rose Bridal Suite is the perfect, convenient way to get ready for your big day.

As the very first Catholic Church in Troy, The Emporium building was built back in 1915 and proudly served the community as a premier place of worship. In 2013, this Alabama historical site was restored to become a premier wedding and event venue that still cherishes many of the original features and same charm.

I absolutely love this venue and Mrs. Jane! The minute I walked into The Emporium I knew it was what we were looking for. It also has a great courtyard that we had our ceremony in. We rented The Chapman house also that is located right beside The Emporium for the bridal suite to get ready in before the wedding. The convenience of both buildings was so wonderful. They both are decorated beautifully and have all the amenities you need. Mrs. Jane really helped me out a lot with the million questions and worries I had. Everything went by so smoothly, and we couldn't have asked for sweeter people or better convenience! Thank you, Mrs. Jane, for helping make our day so special!She was a blessing the whole wedding process. Please call Mrs. Jane and ask about both The Emporium and The Chapman house! You won't be disappointed!Sent on 04/30/2018
