San Francisco Bay Wedding Venue
Wildflowers surround this iconic hillside landmark, which was originally a mission church. The church was built as a place of worship for local railroad workers in 1888.
The building is of significant architectural importance because it is one of the few remaining Carpenter Gothic churches to survive in its original setting. It’s constructed of redwood, with redwood doors and a Douglas fir ceiling. Amber glass replaced the original stained glass windows after they were broken. The stained glass window above the door has been restored and depicts the patron saint of scholars.
The current electric lights are replicas of coal-oil chandeliers, which were lowered with ropes that brackets on the walls held in place. Heating and water are modern additions. Original furnishings include the white altar rail and two stands for statues on either side of the sanctuary, as well as the restored Stations of the Cross in the nave. A donor salvaged the cross from a church in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Permanent furnishings include the concert piano and custom-made docent desk, chair and table, as well as oak pews that are reproductions of the originals. Needlepoint pew cushions featuring local wildflowers.
It has served as a schoolroom and town meeting hall and is now a popular setting for weddings, concerts and other memorable events.
