We were married in the chapel a decade ago. It was beautiful! It has such a lovely chapel. I have attended other weddings and receptions here in the past.

This is a really classic building. You can feel the catholic school culture that inhabited the facility until the 70's when it was converted to offices and commercial training facilities. Can smell the old varnish from the woodwork and the floors.

I was hoping for a different result than the other reviewer on the Academy's FB page that said "DO NOT COME HERE!". This building is beautiful and we did everything to ensure a good relationship with the staff from the beginning, unfortunately we had a very similar experience. On the wedding day two (one being the main lady) of the three staff were EXTREMELY rude and disrespectful to our guests and to us repeatedly. I'm not usually one to leave a review but after this horrible mistreatment I feel like I have to warn others so they know what they're in for if they choose this for their 'special day' venue.

I have attended several events here and they are always beautiful. This historic site is well worth the price for the atmosphere alone.
