How many guests can you accommodate?
The chapel can seat 200 guests. The banquet room can seat 180 guests with room for a dance floor. We can seat up to 200 guests in the banquet room when the tent is in place during the warmer months.
What services will my coordinator provide?
We will be available to answer any questions you have along the way and provide you with recommended vendors. We will schedule a final appointment to meet with you a week before your wedding to finalize all details and your customized floor plan. At that point, you’ll be able to hand off all of your décor items, such as place cards, centerpieces, etc. When you arrive on your wedding day everything will be displayed exactly as you planned. Your coordinator will guide you through all aspects of your day, communicate with your vendors and direct guests.
When will my event start and end?
If you plan to have your ceremony at Westminster and your reception at another venue, we have two options for you: 10:00am-1:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm. This will give you plenty of time to use the dressing room to get ready and also take formal portraits in the chapel and on the grounds following the ceremony. Our standard ceremony and reception timing gives you the chapel and banquet room from 4:00pm to 11:00pm. Most couples opt for a ceremony time starting between 4:30pm and 5:30pm.
What are the rules concerning alcoholic beverages?
Alcoholic beverage sales and service are regulated by the State of New York. Westminster will be responsible for administration of these regulations . Westminster will purchase and serve the alcohol you’ve chosen for your bar package. It is policy that no alcoholic beverages are brought to the premises from outside sources.
Can you recommend your favorite vendors?
We would be more than happy to share our recommended vendor list upon booking. Westminster does require that you hire a DJ with liability insurance for your event. All baked goods much come from a licensed, certified bakery. No homemade goods may be brought on the premises.
How is Westminster different?
Westminster provides the advantage of a singular location combined with personal attention and flexibility. Once you step inside our stunning venue, you’ll see what sets us apart.
