The venue is fantastic, but with it, you also get a built-in coordinator. Christina is hands-down the most responsive (like within the hour responsive haha), helpful, calming, and organized person ever. I can honestly say that our day ended up being a true vision of our dream and was absolutely seamless because Christina made sure things were taken care of. It was 100% stress free day, all while Christina personally attended to all the details. She even took on coordinating deliveries/pickups and fielding questions from mothers :) Christina went out of her way to customize things to make it exactly as we imagined – she worked with us on coming up with a new table layout, napkin folds, more extravagant flower centerpieces, a not-so common signature cocktail, decor placement and even the smaller things like bringing us our dinner to our sweetheart table, keeping drinks in our hands all night and assisting guests with any questions. The venue was the perfect size and felt intimate, but not crowded and even has a bridal dressing room for you wait prior to the ceremony! Also, the in-house catering came with a complimentary tasting event and a fully customizable menu (even our vegan guests were pleased!) – guests have been complimenting the food continuously! Oh, and there’s also a cute park area directly behind the venue that makes for great photos! In short, the venue is beautiful and their coordinator, Christina will treat you like royalty. Book and don’t think twice!

Westminster made our day absolutely beautiful. Christina and Angela did an amazing job! Working with Christina made everything so easy. I can’t even count the amount of times people said I didn’t look stressed at all, and I owe a lot of that to her. The responsiveness to questions, and flexibility to help make our day everything we’ve dreamed of was huge. Great staff, and beautiful venue. We strongly encourage anyone looking at a venue to consider looking at Westminster because you will have the most perfect and beautiful day.

Best wedding ever! We love Westminster!
Christina and everyone at Westminster made our wedding panning process a breeze, I dont know many other brides that can say that! We fell in love with the venue almost immediately and Christina the event coordinator was a blessing from day 1. I was out of state for school for the year and Christina made sure we could schedule meetings when I was in Rochester, she responded to every question or concern quickly. The week before the wedding we dropped off all our decorations and let Christina and her team work their magic to make the space absolute perfection. Numerous guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how comfortable they felt there, the space makes the reception feel so intimate. We also recovered rave reviews from guests about the food, my husband and I actually got to eat a full dinner at our reception (rare I know!) and enjoyed every morsel, absolutely delicious! Throughout the evening Christina was there to help us and our guests with whatever they needed, and to make sure the reception moved along smoothly, she was sweet and professional. I will recommend Westminster to everyone I know! It was the perfect wedding venue for us and Christina made our wedding planning as stress free as possible.
Westminster is a beautiful and full service venue for your ceremony and reception.
