  • We had our ceremony in the sanctuary at the Unitarian Society and our experience was excellent. Communication was mostly via email with Greg, the facilities coordinator. He was professional and quick to respond. Greg was very helpful in answering questions and coordinating times to visit the location. All the staff we met when we visited the venue and during rehearsal were also helpful and provided ideas and guidance. The sanctuary itself is beautiful. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it. We highly recommend this venue to our friends and family!
