The Tale of the Original Westminster Bride


Many have asked how a very old, beautiful chapel and hall has since turned into an amazing ceremony and reception site…well the answer is simple: there once was a bride with a dream. When the owner of Westminster, Angela, was looking for a non-denominational chapel, she just could not find exactly what she was looking for! The search went on and on until one day she stumbled upon an old, dated church for sale in the village of Mendon. At the ripe age of 25, and with serious tenacity, she shared her vision for the building with all she hoped to accomplish. There may have been a few scoffs and people who doubted her seriously ambitious dreams, but persistence and perseverance are a woman’s best accessories! The labor of love that Angela took on to make Westminster what it is today certainly came with its trials and tribulations. Renovating an old building is never all sunshine and rainbows, that's for sure! But with the help of a many skilled individuals, she was able to see her vision come to life!

So remember, when you book Westminster (and if you’ve read this far into this post, you just might ;) you’re not giving your business to a hotel backed by a huge corporation with gobs of money or a golf course that has membership dues helping to fund its overhead. You’re supporting a very busy mom of 3 who, like you, once had a vision for the perfect wedding and stopped at nothing to bring it to fruition for future Westminster brides.
