Events on 6th is the perfect venue for you!

Enjoy getting married in the classic and elegant sanctuary and then celebrating in the fun reception hall. Mingle with your guests for cocktails and appetizers in the mid-century modern 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 vintage 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.

One of the things I looked for when picking vendors was how attentive they were to what we wanted and how knowledgeable they were about their services. Lesley was simply amazing in both of these areas. She took careful notes during our initial visit and conversations and in the follow up conversations she remembered what we wanted. She was very organized, which we really appreciated.

We wanted a venue where we could have the ceremony and reception in the same place. This worked fine for that (we had around 175 people). The chapel was beautiful. We didn't have to decorate at all in this room because the wood pews and stained glass windows were great as is.

Choosing Events on 6th as our wedding venue is one of the best decision that my husband and I made. Events on 6th had made our wedding look so BEAUTIFUL and stunning!! All of our guests compliment the venue and decorations. Every area of the room is classic and elegant. We loved to have our ceremony and reception all in this one gorgeous place. As someone who loves Christ, I've been dreaming to get married in a beautiful church and on my wedding day, I'm so blessed that my dream came true! I believe it's not just the ceremony agenda and the religious service, the sanctuary had contributed to making the holy matrimony felt so powerful! Most of our guests gave us that feedback. Lesley was also very helpful, kind, friendly, prompt, reliable and flexible. She's very patient in handling all of our questions and concerns. She's also very organized and pleasant to work with. We had around 170 guests at our wedding. Everyone can sit on the round table with enough room to dance. No one complained about parking (mainly because we told our guests ahead of time to carpool and give them the map for the parking area). We all had a fantastic time celebrating our happiest day at Events on 6th. We totally recommend this venue to all of our friends and family. Thank you, Lesley and Events on 6th to make our wedding day unique, memorable and perfect!!!

Leslie is just phenomenal to work with, beyond smart and fun. The venue was breathtaking, everything we had hoped for and more. We loved that it had both ceremony and reception areas, each with slightly different vibes. Our guests LOVED not having to go from one venue to another. Parking seems like it is going to be a problem, but we had 150 people and not a single person mentioned the difficulty of parking, they said it was super easy to find close street parking. I could not recommend this venue more. A great bang for the buck!

My wife and I are so pleased that we had our wedding reception at Events on 6th. We are lucky to have worked with Lesley. She is professional and knows her stuff. She was easy to reach and speak to and promptly responded the few times that we did not connect with each other immediately. The space is exactly what we were looking for with separate courtyard, lounge and dance hall areas. The separate (yet connected) areas and the pretty white lights strung about the courtyard and dance areas are what sold us on the venue. There was ample space for our guests (about 80) to dine at round tables and to dance. Our reception was perfect and our guests were impressed with the site. If we had to do it all over again, we would still pick Events on 6th. Thank you so much to Lesley and Events on 6th. You made our wedding day complete!

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!
