stanford memorial church
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
You need to have certain affiliation with the university in order to be able to get married there, and it's a little pricey but it's well worth the money. The architectural details of the place are so striking that we didn't spend any money on flowers for the church, I made some pew decorations from the paper source kit and had some ribbons, so saved some $$ on flowers. We had the 5pm slot (they typically have 11, 1, 3 and 5 pm slots on Saturdays), so it was nice to be the last slot of the day and the Main Quad is not invaded by tourists! The coordinator was very nice and helpful. As part of the package you also get a counselor, which was very nice. My FI was out of town during wedding planning and they were very helpful in arranging meetings when he was going to be in-town etc. We also had a full catholic mass and worked with Father David, along with a concelebrant (my FI's best friend from middle school). Since 90% of our guests were from out of town, the whole atmosphere of the Stanford Main Quad and the church really made a great impression on them.
