"Great location and atmosphere", An Eventective User from Cambridge
My daughter was married in this beautiful setting. The sanctuary has large windows bringing in lots of sunlight. Although the space is big it was easily made smaller by roping off back rows. It has the charm of an old New England church but is right across the street from Harvard yard. The T station is also across the street, but for guests who drive there are reduced rate parking coupons available on line from University Garage a couple of blocks away.
