Historic Wedding Ceremony Venue

2024 dates still available!

Your loved ones will gather in The Starlit Sanctuary inside our historic former church, which has been standing in Covington’s charming Licking Riverside neighborhood since 1866.

Prepare for the ceremony in your private dressing room, then climb the “stairway to heaven” and walk down the aisle in the non- denominational sanctuary that seats 300 guests.

You’ll say your vows under the star light, surrounded by stunning stained glass windows and timeless architecture.

After the ceremony, you and your partner will add your own stars and names to the walls of Constellation Hall, creating unique memories and keepsake photos.

The History

The Starlit Sanctuary's building was constructed in 1866 as the First United Methodist Church. All of the stunning stained glass windows are original.

Since 2020, most of the building is occupied by the Community Montessori School. By renting the sanctuary, you are providing a contribution to the scholarship fund, making it possible for children of all means to attend.

Unique Features

Gather in Constellation Hall, where you will add your own stars, names and ceremony date to the walls.

Climb the Stairway to Heaven to see the constellations painted on the ceiling outside the sanctuary. Each constellation represents a family whose participation helps to support the Community Montessori's scholarship fund.

You can have your own constellation painted there, starting a meaningful family tradition.
