Bridal Suite: Ok, the important stuff...the suites! Our Bridal Suite is found in the Parish House, a 7 room 2 bath house also on the historic registry. It has a large front porch looking out over the grounds toward the church, complete with comfy wicker furniture and an old fashioned swing just out front. The Bridal Suite has everything you need to relax and get ready for your big day! There is even a nursery for your guests should little ones get tired during the reception...and just 10 steps away from the reception hall!

The Rafters at St. Mark’s is simply beautiful!!! As a Wedding Planner/Designer/Coordinator I have seen my share of venues…..not only are the grounds gorgeous but the sanctuary is exquisite and the reception area is equally perfect. Best of all is the support and guidance received by their onsite venue coordinator Allison. She went the extra mile to make sure that everything was stress free for my bride and additionally was my right hand woman!! Thank you to Allison, St. Mark’s and The Rafters! I highly recommend!!
Coming in 2021
