  Where will you be having your ceremony and reception?



For most brides the answer is either in their church or reception hall.  Others may want a different setting.  Choices have always been somewhat limited.  You do have a choice of the location for your ceremony and reception.  Why settle for four walls when you can have the beauty and old world charm of our historic building.  If you happen to be looking for an alternative for your wedding ceremony or reception, the Saints Center For Culture And The Arts has all of the romantic old world charm that anyone could hope to find.  It would make the perfect setting for any bride that would prefer walking down the main aisle as to getting married at her catering facility.  Your ceremony or reception will be personalized to your special request.  

Saints Center For Culture And The Arts is a strikingly elegant venue where the atmosphere and service create lasting memories.
We offer our guests the very best facilities and thoughtful, capable staff.  From elegant weddings and receptions to business meetings, reunions and dinner parties, you will find every aspect of your experience to surpass expectation.
