Do you have my date available?
When you send us an inquiry we look at the date you specified to see if it is available. If it is not, we will let you know as soon as possible.
What do I need to do secure my date?

Can you hold my date before I sign my contract/pay my invoice?

We offer a lot of flexibility in the way your night plays out, we make use of our different rooms and the outdoor spaces (as well as multiple venues) which enables us to create lots of opportunities for special moments. Using music and other subtle cues, we can carry your guests through the night in a way that keeps them intrigued by the space and engaged in the expression of you.

How did Church & Company get started?
Church & Company began as a restoration project in 2011 that was financed in part by events. The idea came to Alex Fox after hosting his friend's wedding in an old church he was living in and renovating. As the project grew, he began hosting music and theatre shows, burlesque acts, film screenings, photo and vide shoots, and historical society meetings. In order to help, his friend, Joseph Faura joined him as maître d' and front of house during events, and designed posters and flyers for several shows. As word spread and they began to host private parties and small weddings, the company began to form. The two decided to start Church & Company LLC in August of 2016, and have since expanded beyond the initial project. Kate Leonard partnered with Alex and Joseph in Spring of 2017, as the in-house events coordinator, and her role as expanded to head of operations. Alex is responsible for historic preservation and restoration, and Joseph handles the visual marketing and design. They continue to form partnerships with individuals, organizations and businesses to bring new life back to historic buildings and properties, all while helping people host creative and unique events.
