Middle Collegiate Church




Tucked away in Manhattan at Lafayette Place and 4th Street, the Middle Collegiate Church is one of the oldest churches of its kind in New York City. Created in the early 17th century, this stunning church was originally built on Nassau Street between Cedar and Liberty. Known as one of the oldest continuously active congregation in America, this spectacular church is steeped in history, creating a rich setting for your big day! The gorgeous sanctuary is ideal for a beautiful ceremony. The beautiful collection of over a dozen artificially lit Tiffany windows adds a historic feel to the structure, as well as a pop of exceptional craftsmanship and color. Vaulted rich wood ceilings with exposed beams lends the church a decidedly Old World feel, accompanied by the ornately carved altar, creates a fine backdrop for exchanging your most sacred vows before God. The large skylight dome in the social hall adds luminosity to the space, making it the perfect place for taking classic family portraits!
