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.

The Westminster Chapel is not only beautiful, our coordinator Christina is top notch. She was responsive and knew what we wanted before we even knew what we wanted. Highly recommended for a venue for both ceremony and reception (even though we didn't have our reception there).Sent on 08/15/2019
