Courtyard & Crystal Tower
 The open-air courtyard provides a breath-taking sight for an outdoor ceremony. Surrounded by seasonal flowers, it can accommodate up to 300 guests. Partially enclosed by the Glass Atrium, it provides great versatility for Bridal Party entrances. The Courtyard is also graced by the Crystal Tower, which provides a dramatic grand entrance for the bride with its 40,000 crystal chandelier, winding staircase and ground-to-ceiling window panes. The Crystal Tower and accompanying Glass Atrium  also provide a perfect location for pictures or cocktail  hour for guests while the bridal party takes pictures (if  pictures are being taken in other areas of the property). Recommended for parties of less than 200 people.
The Rotunda offers a unique and intimate space to host a ceremony. The imported Italian marble floor, pillars, and serene fountain provide an elegant backdrop for your ceremony. The Rotunda can accommodate up to 150 guests seated in the back portion. However, we have accommodated close to 225 guests when utilizing both sides of the Rotunda. The distinctive second floor allows latecomers and overflow to unobtrusively view the ceremony as it is taking place.

When not being utilized for an indoor ceremony, the Rotunda provides another alternative for cocktail hour and can also be utilized to house any auxiliary tables (buffet, bar, Placecard table, photo booth, etc.) Can accommodate parties of up to 300 when used in conjunction with the Buchanan Ballroom.

Buchanan Ballroom
 Often utilized for the reception, the Buchanan Ballroom provides a third alternative for  an indoor ceremony. You can exchange your vows in the middle of the dance floor or in  front of the head table, with guests looking on from the tables. You may also have the  Buchanan Ballroom set for the ceremony, using cabaret style seating.  The Buchanan Ballroom with its tall windows, wood columns, vaulted ceiling and numerous crystal chandeliers provides a wonderful canvas for you to create the look and feel you want for your reception. The Buchanan Ballroom can accommodate up to 300 guests (with dance floor) and up to 320 guests (when tables are place on top of the dance floor). It is fitted with state of the art audio/visual equipment. Each event is custom designed to fit your needs and idea of the perfect day.
Bridal Suite & Retreat
 The Retreat is the room designated for grooms and groomsmen. It features two large couches, a lounge chair, small table and built-in counter space for food or drink. There is also a flat screen television provided to keep everyone entertained.  The Bridal Suite offers a nice haven for brides and bridesmaids. It features five (5) separate stations and is complete with wall-to-wall mirrors, garment racks as well as iron, ironing board and steamer. Hairstylists and makeup artists are more than welcome at the Community Life Center to assist with preparations.
