Facilities and Capacity
The Sanctuary by Wedgewood Weddings features a breathtaking open-air courtyard surrounded by the cathedral’s walls. This property features rustic accents, towering white walls with pitched roofs, and ornate stained-glass windows throughout the space. You and your photographer will delight with the gorgeous background of this property while you say, ‘I do.’
If you’d prefer an indoor ceremony, your guests will be awestruck by the sky-high vaulted ceilings. These are adorned with exposed wood beams, rustic hanging lanterns, porcelain white tile flooring, and the various glowing hues from the stained-glass windows. This expansive space can seat up to 200 guests and can also be utilized as a reception space if you’d prefer a gorgeous courtyard ceremony.
From the cathedral in the west wing, guests can make their way down the corridor to the grand hall. As this venue's second reception space, the grand hall features vaulted ceilings with wrought iron chandeliers and exposed wood beams. Hardwood oak floors, white walls, and black accents make for a rustic yet modern space. Additionally, this area includes an expansive stage where you can seat extra guests, show off your wedding party, or host a live band. There are limitless options to make this space all your own for your wedding day, so be sure to ask about our additional decoration choices.
