Westminster? More like "Best"minster
From the beginning, my (now) husband and I have said that we couldn't have picked a better venue.Sent on 04/27/2019
For starters, let's talk about the "venue/pretty much helps you with everything you will ever need" coordinator, Christina. She is simply the best. She will help you with every step of the process. From vendor recommendations to decor suggestions to just being a huge emotional support, she is absolutely phenomenal. She responded to my bajillion e-mails within an hour of me sending them (even on weekends and evenings). The day of the wedding, Christina was our saving grace. She helped it go so flawlessly, and we didn't have to worry about a thing. She made sure we were having fun and, most importantly, eating some food so we had the energy to make it through the rest of the evening. I honestly do not think we could have gotten through most of this journey without her.
Next, the venue is breathtaking. There are very few "all-in-one" venues that are simply beautiful, and Westminster is one of them. The chapel is so amazing, with the huge stained glass windows and woodwork. It honestly does not need any additional decor. Second, having the reception area connected is perfect, especially when it begins to downpour once the wedding has begun, like it did in our case! Guests can just walk through the stairwell that connects both the chapel and the reception area, and not get wet from any rain or cold from any snow. Also, the food was amazing. We received so many positive reviews from the food served. We were even told by quite a few guests that it was, "the best food that they've ever had at a wedding."
From working with Christina to just the overall flawlessness of the venue and wedding day, we could not have picked a better venue. There is truly nothing like Westminster.

We were so happy with everything about Westminster. Our wedding was perfect. There wasn't a single thing that we would have changed. Christina was so responsive to all of our needs and communicated quickly with us which was important as we were planning the wedding from 4 hours away and getting back on multiple occasions was not possible. She helped us with the DJ (Whirlin' Disc) who was awesome as well. We wanted something different for a dessert and she got us in touch with Nitro Magic Ice Cream. Ice cream made on the spot and it was delicious. The perfect dessert for a winter wedding. It was nice having a chapel wedding and then move right into the reception. I highly recommend Westminster for your wedding.Sent on 03/27/2019
