Located just minutes from Loop 410 with easy access to any location citywide, the St. Paul Community Center is a bride’s fantasy hall because the possibilities are infinite. Formally the Agudas Achim Jewish Community Center, the facility was recently renovated and now features remarkable amenities such as 6,600 square feet of space, three dramatic candelabra chandeliers, six candelabra wall sconces, an oak parquet floor and an elevated theater stage. Still, with plenty of room to accommodate 200 to 600 guests, the beauty of this facility is that the fine details needed to personalize the affair are the couples’ to choose.
“The center is an exquisite canvas ready for the special touches provided by our brides and grooms,” says Mary Davila, director of the St. Paul Community Center. “With each celebration, the space becomes a transformed environment with plenty of elegance and romance and a lot of the amenities you won’t find at a hotel.”
Indeed, in addition to its great looks, the venue offers nuptial couples plenty of practicality with a commercial size kitchen and a lighted parking lot perfect for accommodating a large guest list. And, for couples who want a memorable place to say “I do,” the center’s impressive auditorium offers marrying men and women the option of conducting their ceremony on site and boasts theater style seating for up to 600 people as well as a multi-use stage. Best of all, Davila and her staff are prepared to assist every bride and groom with their wedding plans and can offer suggestions on room use and layout as well as offer referrals for caterers, entertainment and décor.
“Our professional staff is accustomed to going the extra mile for our couples,” says Davila. “We work hard to make the affair a truly special one.”
Certainly, Mary and her staff have set a precedent in quality service and have been accommodating the unique requests of bridal couples for over seven years. Though the details of each wedding celebration are always distinctive, the center’s rental fee helps couples get started with a generous list of basic services including two security officers, access to the hall for a six hour affair, set-up, clean-up, and tear-down of tables and chairs and use of the kitchen. In addition, each event will be attended by a staff member of the center. It is attention to the needs of their community like this that keep the St. Paul Community Center a popular venue for wedding celebrations and often dictates that couples reserve the space a year in advance.
“Our first-rate facilities and precise planning and execution will ensure that your event will be exactly what you envisioned,” Davila says.
