We are parishioner of St. Sebastian, so we see on a weekly basis its beauty. Saint Sebastian is a beautiful church and it is located in the great distance from varies different reception venues. Saint Sebastian also has a nice size reception hall. We were one of the last couple BLESSED to have Father Quinn preside our sacrament of marriage. Father Quinn has been relocated by the Archdiocese to All Saints. Words can’t describe how much we have grown to love and admire Father Quinn. He gave a great homilies and I was told time and time again by my guests what a personable and sweet man he is.

We chose to have Sue Schiere sing for us. She is AMAZING; we are so impress during Sunday’s Mass that it was a very lovely addition to our ceremony. We met with Music Director, Peter Manfredi, somewhat later on in the planning process. The music selection was limited but I ask to include a song not in the list for the Bridal Entrance and they were very accommodating.
Mr. Manfredi guided us in the right directions – as far as the flow of the ceremony and how incorporates the music to make such it all ties together.

It was THE PERFECT wedding. I am very thankful and bless to have had the pleasure of meeting these individual.

St. Sebastian's is a beautiful church with a long aisle and was a perfect distance from our reception location. Father Quinn is a really nice man and gives great homilies from what I've experienced but we brought our own priest for our wedding. Compared to many of the churches we looked into, this one really stood out and it was the perfect setting for our wedding and it was reasonably priced.

Our only issue was with the Ceremony music. I met with their organist, which you have to use, to choose all the music and I told him we would be having two of our friends perform with him, a cellist and a vocalist. I went the week before to pick up music for them and he told me he didn't have it all right then but gave me what he did have. Well, (I just found this out) come the day of the wedding apparently our friend, the vocalist, was writing and arranging the music for them because the music director still didn't have all the parts. So, he was making it up for them! He really saved the day there and it sounded amazing. No one knew (including us). Just be mindful if you are bringing your own musicians!

Otherwise, it was perfect!

St. Sebastian was idyllic and picturesque for our wedding and reception of approximately 170 guests. The church is well-maintained and has wonderful stained-glass windows that let the light come streaming in during our 2:00 pm ceremony. Father Quinn is one of the most dynamic priests that I have ever met (and that is after years of catholic school and church attendance). Fortunately he is also bi-lingual and was able to perform an engaging mass in both English and Spanish.

The organist was a pleasure to work with, however, he did present a limited music selection to choose from. Luckily some of the songs, such as Ave Maria and Canon in D, were choices that I already planned to include; so it worked our well for me.

In my opinion, the best part of St. Sebastian is the reception hall directly opposite the church. Our guest only needed to walk a few steps to the newly renovated open air courtyard that has charming hanging flower pots and a central water fountain. Inside, our catering staff was able to set up in the kitchen and were well hidden from sight. The hall was beautifully lit with the strands of mini light bulbs wrapped around fake potted plants which were included in the rental price. If you want an amazing location that guest will appreciate, down to the bathrooms, then St. Sebastian is the best choice!!
