We had our wedding ceremony at MemChu in May. The church is magnificent, and that is what you're paying for. The religious staff (Catholic community in our case) were wonderful and professional. The organist was fantastic.

Stanford's staff, however, was difficult to work with. Melissa is the coordinator, and only responds to email messages. She lost our emails once and treated us very brashly because of her own incompetency. She also failed to answer most of our questions directly or in a timely manner. Until the actual wedding day, we and our wedding party were treated very poorly. She made us feel bad about our choices in ceremony music, processional order, etc. even at the rehearsal. To her credit, everything went smoothly for the ceremony. Stanford would be wise to make sure she is either replaced or reprimanded for her treatment of the clientele. We have heard similar opinions from friends who have been married at the church.

Stanford is a non-denominational church, so naturally we chose to go with a Catholic ceremony. The service is quick and simple, and only allows for a 45-minute mass, which is perfect for guests. I loved every minute of being in the church with family and friends.

The Church is definitely beautiful and memorable for our wedding, however there are lots of rules and procedures to follow. First of all, you need to be related to Stanford somehow to get qualified. Second, you need to complete 2 marriage counseling sessions. The ceremony is restricted in 2 hours, including preparation and cleaning time. Hence speading pedals is not allowed. The most inconvenient is, the photography and videography is not allowed during the ceremony except the professional ones. Even for those professionals, they need to stay on specific spots. So be sure to hire someone with experiences at Stanford Church. Other than all these, the Church is beautiful, the staff is nice, and the service is professional to guarantee a wonderful wedding.

Memorial Church is absolutely beautiful, and I've dreamed of getting married there since I was a wide-eyed freshman.

Mary Gallagher, the coordinator for MemChu, is an absolute gem and we were so lucky to work with her for our ceremony. Also, Father Nathan and the rest of the staff of the Catholic Community at Stanford were very supportive and helpful during our marriage preparation.

The Stanford Church was a stunning backdrop to our ceremony. Everyone was professional, on time, and did everything right. Our only minor complaint was that they had strict guidelines that we had to make sure we abided by. However, given the beauty of the church these guidelines help to preserve the atmosphere and the beauty of our ceremony. We couldn't have been more pleased.

This is a breathtakingly gorgeous church to get married in if you're affiliated with Stanford. They can do up to 4 weddings a day and only give you a 2 h 15 min timeslot where you have the church though, so you have to be able to work within their rules. They have restrictions for where the photographer and videographer can stand, where you can put flowers (limited), and the clergy read a pretty cookie-cutter script for the ceremony. However, you are able to personalize the wedding by having an assisting clergy give a 3-5 min homily, choosing readings/hymns, and incorporating cultural traditions. My wedding went extremely smoothly and they do a great job of making sure the ceremony goes without a hitch even if you're nervous and can't remember!

The Rev. Scotty McLennan performed a beautiful service, allowing us to substitute two poems that are important to us for a sermon. The church provides a wedding planner as part of the contract, which was wonderful.
