This church is AMAZING! The second oldest chirch in Chicago and one of only a few buildings to survive the Chicago fire - it has a great story! It's dark, but warm...we didn't bring in any decorations - the church speaks for itself. Father Boland was great to work with also. We did not need to be members of the church to be married here.
The only reason I'm rating this 1 Star is because of the wedding coordinator. She is awful to deal with and they need to get someone else. Father Bolund is great and the space is amazing but she knows how to ruin weddings. She started our wedding ceremony 10 minutes early- the groom wasn't there yet, rushed us through at 20 minute rehearsal because she "had somewhere to be", was stomping around on the alter during the prelude in jeans, and is extremely rude. Not to mention that she made our guests wait for cabs outside in the cold even though we were still within our allotted two hours of time at the church. If she is a volunteer she should be asked to step down; if she is paid she should be fired.
I would not recommend this place to anyone even though it is very beautiful because of her.
Very ornate and pretty church. Second oldest church in chicago and it was gorgeous. Father Boland is also wonderful. We had such a great wedding day.
