Events on 6th is the perfect venue for you!

Enjoy getting married in the stunning sanctuary and then celebrating in the fun reception hall. Mingle with your guests for cocktails and appetizers in the lounge and outdoor garden courtyard, and enjoy dinner and dancing in the reception hall. With the open layout, your guests are free to mingle in the building, sit by the fire for conversation, and enjoy the entire day all in one location.

The church is a striking Gothic Revival structure built in 1924, with gorgeous stained glass windows, a majestic vaulted ceiling, the original pipe organ, a balcony, and seating for 200. It has an amazing, grand feel because of the high ceilings, but it is also very intimate because of the size of the space. Feel like royalty in this gorgeous place!

Relaxing and romantic dressing rooms are perfect for pictures and getting ready. There's even an extra room to use as an additional dressing room or as sitting room for grandparents, children, or your officiant.

The mid-century modern lounge has wonderful white leather couches and a cozy fire for those cool evenings; perfect for guests who'd rather sit and talk than dance.

Serve drinks and appetizers in the garden, or just dance under the stars!

The exposed-beam reception hall has a gleaming waxed floor and adjoins a buffet serving room. The space even includes tables, chairs, and fun garden party lights.

With so many beautiful areas in such a unique layout, Events on 6th is the perfect backdrop for your entire wedding day.

The best of both worlds! With the Sanctuary, you get this vintage feel with old world charm - Stained glass windows, beautiful wooden altar, and lots of windows for natural light. It is truly a beautiful canvas but kept simple that only gets better with accented decor and floral arrangements. The lounge is very mid century and modern which serves as a great space for gathering, hors d'oeuvres, and bar services. This space is also well lit and is great for photo ops or photo booths.. The Bridal and Groom suits are perfectly decorated for their purposes. The reception hall is truly a blank canvas which I love! It definitely gives you a modern/industrial feel with the exposed ceiling but the hanging lights really tie it all together. You don't need a lot of decor. I love that there is a specified space for the food so that it doesn't take away from the main seating. There is also a kitchen in a separate room for food storage and such. Last but not least, the courtyard aka my favorite space! The hanging lights tie in with the romantic/urban feel and is such a cute space for guests to gather and cool off. It connects to the reception hall and the lounge. This venue is truly more bang for your buck! You really get 4 beautiful spaces for you and all of your guests to enjoy. Everyone, including myself, really enjoyed celebrating at Events on 6th. Lesley and her team were more than accommodating. The communication was exceptional in the year we have been planning and we are just SO pleased with how everything turned out. I highly recommend this venue for any occasion but especially a wedding. For such a stressful event, Lesley really made it as seamless as possible and I cannot thank her enough.

Events on 6th was the perfect place that I was looking for. I wanted to go to a more traditional route and get married in a church / chapel. This place is beautiful on the inside. From the big door entrance, to the stone, the hard wood floors, all the way to stained glass windows. It's great that we were able to hold the ceremony and the reception all in one place, which was our other requirement. I loved that there is a lounge area / garden which is where we held our cocktail hour.
We set up a cheese and crackers / candy table as well as an open bar so our guests were able to have a drink and a snack before the reception. It does involve more work, however, because you have to find your own caterer, bartender, decorator, DJ, etc. They do have preffered caterers and the venue does hold an open house for you to be able to meet them and see their work :)

Lastly, I want to comment on how great it was to work with Lesley! She was quick to reply to emails and she always kept us updated with updates on with the venue, parking, if she's on vacation etc.

I've been a Christian almost my entire life; however, I have always bounced around from church to church and have never felt like I've had a true "home church". That being said, when it came time to get married I wanted the ceremony to be in a church I just didn't have one that felt like home. My extensive search led to me Events on 6th, the photos online looked beautiful and I was so excited to see the venue in person. I contacted Lesley (the venue manager) late one evening and had a response from her by the time I woke up the next morning! We set up a same day appointment so I could see the venue in person, and wow did it exceed my expectations. I fell in love with the chapel's large stained glass windows that allowed ample natural lighting. I also loved the dark oak pews, and stone exterior of the church. Being able to have the ceremony and reception at the same location was a bonus. We used the foyer as a lounge, complete with couches, for cocktail hour and set up several cocktail tables, an appetizer table, and a wine bar. We also served beer at our reception and decided to go with kegs because they were most cost effective. I was so nervous to have kegs on display at the wedding; however, there is a perfect service closet that we served the beer from that kept the kegs out of sight! Because we split up the wine and beer we did have to hire two bartenders, but we think this helped spread out guests so we didn't have everyone clustered in one area. With 180 guests we were nervous about space being an issue, but there was plenty of room. The reception hall comfortably fit 17 round tables, 4 rectangular tables (as the head tables), the cake table, a DJ booth, and all our guests! Because we maxed out space in the reception hall we used the courtyard as our "dance floor" and it worked out perfectly! Our DJ set up two speakers, one in the reception hall for toasts & speeches, and one in the courtyard for dancing. Overall this venue was perfect for us!

I am so glad we went with Events on 6th Ave. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every single way. The venue is gorgeous!!! Working with Lesley who is the point of contact was very good. She was able to always be flexible when needing to meet because my husband and I worked crazy schedules for awhile. She was always so sweet and very knowledgeable. If she didn't know the answer she would find it out quickly and get back to you. Also, when we would have walk throughs to look around and get ideas she was send me an email a few days later with an outline of what we went over. Saying we I mean me (bride), wedding coordinator, and maid of honor. I loved getting those emails so I made sure I didn't forget anything. I highly recommend having your wedding here. It is beautiful in every single room. It flowed so perfectly for guests. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful vendor to work with! Made our experience with the wedding planning painless.

We just got married at Events on 6th, and it was everything we had hoped for and more!

Our main requirement when we were looking for a place was that we wanted our ceremony/reception all in one spot. We also love old architecture and retro styles but with modern touches - our 100-year old house is a mix of old and new stuff. As soon as we walked into Events on 6th we knew it was the place for us - it almost felt like walking into our dream home! We loved the ceremony/altar area; we aren’t religious, but loved the stained glass and pews for that “old church” feel. We also loved the lobby/reception area with the white leather couches and chandeliers and string lights - it was very “Mad Men” yet modern at the same time, and still worked well with the ceremony area. The bridal area and grooms area are beautifully done, and I liked that there was an additional room available as well with a couch; I know it's generally reserved for the officiant, but we used it for our families to be able to change in after getting everything set up.

Our wedding would not have been possible without Lesley, who was so amazing throughout this whole process – we were planning this long-distance and dealing with time zone differences, insane work schedules, and overall craziness...any questions we had were answered promptly, she was so organized and friendly and helpful - sending us reminders for when things needed to be completed (I completely had forgotten we needed a liquor license! Without her reminder we would have shown up without it!) and also sent different blueprints of how others had set up tables in for the reception to give us ideas on how to plan our area out, and also a map of the area for parking options. Thank you thank you thank you Lesley for everything!

We found "Events on 6th" to be the perfect venue for our daughter's wedding. You're not just renting a huge empty space - but a gorgeous Gothic church filled with architectural history. Our guests not only enjoyed the large reception area but roamed the entire facility from the beautiful chapel to the relaxing lounge & bar area w/outside courtyard. The bride & bridal party also had plenty of room to get ready & pamper themselves in the spacious bridal suite. From the first time we toured "Events on 6th", Leslie, the events coordinator, was absolutely wonderful. She was filled with good creative ideas to help make our evening go smoothly. She responds to every phone call & text immediately and even accepted our offer of being our wedding processional coordinator!! Our evening was very special because of her help!! I would highly recommend "Events of 6th" to everyone planning a wedding!!
