    SO Grateful!

    My fiance and I are in a unique situation where we are trying to lock down "big" vendors for our 2023 wedding prior to me starting grad school next year. Susan and Liz were so acommodating with allowing us to tour and put our deposit down this year with the provision that if their "deals" changed we could receive the higher amount of the two. They are so responsive to emails and phone calls and answer all of our questions no matter how small or seemingly "silly"! I cannot wait to marry my best friend in this beautiful venue!

    Millbrook Cathedral's reply:

    You guys are such a fun couple. Good luck in school Sarah. We look forward to following your progress.

    Our Perfect Dreamy Fall Wedding

    Millbrook Cathedral was the perfect, dreamy location for our intimate fall wedding on October 10, 2021. We live across the country, so once we fell in love online, we had our parents scout the venue in person. They too loved it.
    Susan (owner), Liz (venue coordinator) and Kristen (bar tender) all worked to make our day reflective of us. We are Trinidadian and they welcomed our outside vendors to make sure we had the food and drinks we know our guests would enjoy. If you decide to go this route, there is a 15% landmark fee (you pay 15% of your caterer’s total invoice to Millbrook); your outside caterer will need $5 million liability insurance coverage and your outside caterer cannot use any kitchen appliances (i.e. stove, oven) except what room may be left in the fridge/freezer that is used by the bar.
    The venue itself doesn’t come with rentals, so as part of your contract with them they rent tables, chairs, linens and other items for you and the cost of those rentals, plus set up and tear down will be charged to you as part of your final bill.
    Our ceremony blended Christian and Jewish elements together and Millbrook Cathedral and Chuppah.ca (of which Susan is also the owner) gave us all the things we needed to create the most beautiful blended ceremony, including throwing in a delicious kosher wine from a notable kosher wine producers.
    Due to the pandemic our cocktail hour was outdoors between the gorgeous cathedral and our reception tent. We had such amazing photos ops on Millbrook’s grounds (swings, woodpile, shed, creek with a bridge, fall foilage) and were so happy for the perfect sunny Fall day that we got. Because we chose to work with our own wedding coordinator the venue coordinator left just after the ceremony but, was on call all night and the other Millbrook staff remained while out other vendors took over.
    Our reception was in a tent from Gervais rentals who made booking, modifying the order as needed and setup/tear down a breeze. If you have to or chose to go the route of a tented outdoor reception, know that your music and bar stop at 11pm due to the town’s by-laws. You can have your day start earlier for an extra fee per hour so that you have as full a day as possible. We opted to do this and it worked out well.
    Planning a wedding in a pandemic was stressful. MC did their best to help us roll with the punches, accommodate the changing restrictions. We did face several hurdles in the last few weeks leading up to our big day but MC resolved all discrepancies quickly and made sure we were set for our perfect wedding day. Susan even intervened when needed and always helped come up with a solution. Even after our wedding day, they promptly provided us with a refund for a podium that the rental company did not deliver.
    We are so happy with how our wedding day at MC unfolded. Our guests are still raving. It was magically memorable and we’d do it all over again if we could. Thank you Millbrook Cathedral for making our perfect day possible!

    Beautiful Venue & Experience

    Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would have the opportunity to get married in such a beautiful space. After the pandemic cancelled our original plans we reached out to Millbrook Cathedral and I'm so glad we did. Susan and Liz ensured that we had a perfect wedding and reception, and were so accommodating along the way. Now I'm trying to convince everyone I know getting married to hold it there as well so I have the opportunity to go back- there's endless configurations to make it a unique set up and space for whatever vision you have. Thank you again!

    Great pop up wedding venue with great vendors!

    There's actually nothing to tell but good things about Millbrook Cathedral. We just fell in love of the place even when we first saw it in pictures and love it even more when we visited the place in person. My fiance who is now my husband contacted Susan and we were booked right away to check the place. The venue is perfect and I like the fact that you could utilize all the space plus Susan and Liz are very accommodating and quick to respond to all of our inquiries and worries in the beginning and till our wedding day.

    I love the chapel, love the bride's room, love the lounge, love the backyard and ofcourse love all the vendors from Millbrook that made our wedding smooth and beautiful. Thankyou to Susan and Liz for helping us all through out the process and even when we had to add the filipino traditional wedding close to the wedding date or the 1 day we ask to check the place again for jay's parents to see and changing some things like adding guests and the reception. Everything is just so perfect except the fact that it rained on our wedding day and we could not utilize the backyard as reception as we've wanted too. I blame the weather but we were really happy we found Millbrook Cathedral. It's gonna be a special place forever in our heart. Thankyou so much 💕

    i wish I could share pictures how good our wedding because of this place but I only have these:

    Millbrook Cathedral's reply:

    Thank you Kristel & Jay! You two were an absolute dream to work with and we wish you a lifetime of happiness. Rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck ;)

    Incredible Pop-up Wedding

    We can’t begin to describe the incredible experience we had with Millbrook Cathedral for our October 16 2021 pop up wedding! Liz and Susan arranged everything, from the florals to the live music, decor, beautiful charcuterie table and desserts, photographer, videographer….it was the most relaxing time for us since they had everything covered!

    We postponed the wedding once due to the pandemic and it was as simple as choosing a new date and time with Millbrook. There was nothing else we needed to do.

    The day of, everything went so smoothly it felt surreal. Liz literally gave me the earring back off her own earring after I lost mine!

    We wouldn’t change a thing and are so grateful to the team at Millbrook Cathedral and their vendors for our wonderful wedding day. We will never forget it and Millbrook will always have a special place in our hearts.

    Millbrook Cathedral's reply:

    It was a joy being a part of your day and we are thrilled you will have these wonderful memories forever. Wishing you and Megan a lifetime of joy and happiness xoxo

    Perfect day!

    The venue is absolutely beautiful. With architectural touches of wooden beamed ceilings in the cathedral and stain glassed windows. My husband and I just got married there on October 18, 2020. They held their first tented reception outdoors and it was perfect. Whatever we wanted and needed to change they made it happen. I cannot thank Liz, our wedding planner enough for her patience and hard work.

    Covid wedding

    My husband and I had planned our wedding for a year before our venue cancelled due to COVID. We decided that we still wanted to get married and with only 3 weeks before the date we reached out to the wonderful people at the Cathedral. We were lucky that they had our date available and within a day everything was booked and finalized. Liz and Susan were kind and accommodating through everything. They even set up both inside and outside despite the weather forecast looking like our outside ceremony dreams would be rained out. The rain stopped a few minutes before the scheduled ceremony time and they quickly got the outside completely ready. Our original plan might not have worked out but our day at the Cathedral is one that we won’t soon forget. We cannot thank them enough for all of their kindness and support through a difficult journey to the alter. Everything was stunning and we are so happy that we found the Millbrook Cathedral!

    Millbrook Cathedral's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words. Liz & I enjoyed working with you both so much. May you have many, many happy years together!

    Millbrook Cathedral Elopement

    We were wanting to have a very small elopement ceremony with a few close family members to witness our special day. Millbrook Cathedral met our needs perfectly. The church itself is breathtaking. Its beautifully maintained and still has a very old world feel to it. We also thought the church grounds was beautiful and perfect for our photos. The owners of the church were very warm and welcoming and had the church look exactly how we had hoped it would. We would definitely recommend a wedding or any other celebration to take place at this beautiful historic cathedral!
