 Do I have to choose vendors from Events at Westminster’s (aka E@W) Vendor List?
No, you are free to choose your own vendors.

Are there dedicated rooms for the bride and groom?

Yes, rooms are set aside for both the bride and groom.


Are there any restrictions for decorating?
We ask that you do not use stickers, glue dots, nails, tacks, or any kind of adhesives anywhere on interior walls, wood structures or chairs and tables that are on the premises. An alternative is fishing line, rope or wires.


  • For an outdoor ceremony/reception: Real flower petals, dried flowers or soap bubbles are E@W’s alternative to throwing rice, birdseed or confetti which are not permitted. Sparklers are also not allowed. Table decorating shall NOT include plastic or glass confetti or like items as they do not biodegrade. We do allow candles & helium balloons.

  • For an indoor ceremony/reception:  Flower girls can throw only artificial, silk or fabric petals. No open flame candles are allowed. For more information, see our General Reservation and Use Information.


Can we share a bottle of champagne or shots while getting ready in our dressing rooms?
The ONLY alcohol allowed is beer and wine and may only be consumed on the premises when it is served by a licensed & insured bartender. If your caterer or bartender agrees to come early to do this, that would be acceptable to us. Only a hosted bar is acceptable; no alcohol sales are allowed. We also require a security presence at all times when alcohol is served. Alcohol service must conclude by 8pm.


Is there electricity for my DJ/musician at the ceremony reception area?
Yes, we have lots of electrical outlets at the ceremony and areas.



Are animals allowed on the premises?
Only certified service dogs are allowed, and must be kept on leash at all times.


Can my flower girl throw real flower petals?
If your ceremony is outside, yes. If your ceremony is inside, only artificial, silk or fabric petals may be used. All materials must be cleaned up following your event.


Is there a refrigerator for my cake/flowers?
Cake yes, flowers no. Our refrigerators are too cold for flowers. They can be kept in the bride’s room. Your caterer should make sure the cake will fit in our refrigerator ahead of time!



Is there more than one event per day?

No, we only book one event per day.


Is my reception over at sunset or do I have to be cleaned up by sunset?
Amplified sound outside the buildings is allowed only with prior approval from E@W and must be concluded by 9:00 PM. The decibel level of the music may not exceed 50 decibels, whether it be live or recorded. Alcohol service must conclude by 8pm.  Make sure your DJ & bartender are aware of these restrictions.



Do we need to sweep & stack chairs & tables after the reception?
No, E@W will take care of the chairs & tables. Any food, decoration debris & water bottles need to be cleaned up from both the ceremony area & reception area & placed in the dumpsters.


What are the hours?
8am until 9pm. You then have 45 minutes to get all trash to the dumpster and gather everything you brought, leaving the rooms as you found them. You should leave the property by 10:00pm.


What is your payment & cancellation policy?
At the time a reservation is made, a non-refundable Security/Damage deposit is due (20% of total contract). The deposit will be deducted from the total balance due, after the event and a final inspection has taken place.

See our General Reservation and Use Information for more details.  


What kind of insurance do I need to have?

  • Our event rental fee includes a “Certificate of Liability Insurance” from an insurance agent for $1,000,000.00 that is valid for your rehearsal & event dates.

  • If you use a caterer, E@W needs a copy of their “Liquor Liability Insurance” showing Westminster Presbyterian Church as a certificate holder. ALL alcohol MUST be served by bartenders who carry “Liquor Liability Insurance”. They must be a business and have a business license. No friends or family are allowed to serve alcohol.



We love children & welcome them to enjoy the event. To ensure their safety they must be with an adult at all times. Children may play on the grass and must be accompanied by an adult at ALL times.


Is there enough parking?
We have free parking for up to 85 cars. We also have several ADA parking spaces.


Can we have yard games?
Yes. Our lawn area measures approximately 20'x20'.
