This is a beautiful space that you can make your own, it was perfect for the glamourous, fairytale reception that my daughter envisioned! Please don't hesitate to use their in house caterer, Sterling. The head director of catering Megan Lam is a woman you want to work with. She will help you with table layout, menus, she goes the extra mile and has such a kind heart! We had tables set for about 126 people, using the stage for the head table, everyone downstairs with a dance floor ; it was perfectly sized for our crowd! Don't hesitate to look it over, especially if you are using Bella Donna Chapel for ceremony, it’s in the same complex as the chapel, a short walk or drive over.Sent on 06/14/2020
The Sanctuary's reply:We are so grateful for your 5- star review! We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us and the community—and we agree, Megan is truly a gem to have on our team and Sterling always takes it above and beyond! We count ourselves lucky for customers like you. We loved assisting and watching your vision for the perfect wedding reception come to life at The Sanctuary! Your tablescape and decor were stunning! Your event was first class all the way and we at The Sanctuary were proud to be a part of it!

A well-oiled machine
The professionalism and knowledge of the staff puts everyone at ease from start to finish. The space is absolutely beautiful and we loved having Megan organizing. It was absolutely worth it to book the bridal room for the day; it allowed us to store our things there and get ready as we saw the main floor transform into the rehearsal space.Sent on 09/23/2019
