A Day to Remeber - An Eventective User from San Rafael, CA

I couldn't have been happier with our chose of the Swedenborgian Church for our wedding ceremony. The church is a historic landmark that is full of whimsy and charm. Its old wood/log construction give an ambiance like no other church I have been to. We choose to have it around Christmas and it was wonderfully yet tastefully decorated. The ceremony went off without a hitch. There were small rooms for my wife and bridesmaids to get prim and proper while another space for my groomsmen and I to have a beer and relax until it started. The church is not that large so if you are planning to have a big wedding you will have to only invite the most important family and friends to the ceremony. The church and staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had a friend who was able to be ordained online to marry us; they were not picky and choosy about religious beliefs. We brought in a lovely 3 piece string band for our music and our wedding planner had a boy's choir outside after the ceremony to sing Christmas songs to the exiting friends and family. I would recommend planning early as I believe they are usually pretty busy. Also it was very helpful to hire a valet service as there is only street parking available. It makes it a lot easier on the out of town guests as well as some people may not be used to parking on very hilly streets. The day went off beautifully and I will remember how great, fun, exciting, it was for the rest of my life.
