Over 125 years old, the former one room schoolhouse has been completely renovated into a chic, contemporary space with air-conditioning. The beautiful open space has a two-storey ceiling with 8 foot high windows, allowing plenty of natural light. The venue features natural oak hardwood and marble floors throughout. The second floor mezzanine has a private suite to get ready and relax prior to the ceremony. The Schoolhouse comes professionally decorated and we always incorporate your personal, and finishing touches.
Munster United Church
With its beginnings in 1894, the 125 seat church is surround by beautiful stained glass windows and features hand-crafted curved pews and wood finishings throughout. The charming church is carpeted and is wheelchair accessible. Pictures and video recording is allowed in the church during the ceremony. The church boasts a richness of character with its gorgeous stone-work and 19th century craftsmanship.
Couples are welcome to declare their nuptials by ringing the church bells. The church is a beautiful ceremony location and can also serve as backup for inclement weather.
