    We had the most fabulous experience hosting our wedding ceremony at the Friends Center. From start to finish, their staff was professional, kind and accommodating. We were so lucky to work with amazing people who helped our dream of the perfect Quaker wedding ceremony come true.

    Special shoutouts to Shakirah, who helped us plan and arrange the big day, and Joe, who helped us execute every little detail. Joe and his colleague Teneshia, did also go above and beyond helping out the day of the event, carrying things, setting things up, making sure doors were open and people were flowing properly.

    The space in the Race Street Room is beautiful, grand but simple, and the perfect room for a large Quaker ceremony.

    Thank you to all of the staff who helped make our wedding ceremony perfect!
