Sealed with a kiss!
Laura & Chris' Wedding at JCRaulston Arboretum

Thursday, August 19, 2010


I am delighted to announce that Long View Center sanctuary is once again open for weddings and other events. Long View Center is one of the most elegant and beautiful church settings for a wedding in the Triangle.
When it was purchased from Tabernacle Baptist Church about 10 years ago all the stained glass windows were replaced with non-religious themed windows because Tabernacle took with them the original windows. So the sanctuary is perfect for non-denominational weddings. It is located in downtown Raleigh at 118 S. Person Street across from Moore's Square. Convenient to many restaurants and local attractions.
This photo of the balcony at the rear of the church was taken from the altar to show the light shining through.
This is a photo of a Jen and Martin's wedding I officiated there in August of 2003. The sanctuary has a grand piano and other musicians can be brought in. Jen's brother, David, a classical pianist, is playing for us.
The sanctuary is semicircular with a very long center aisle for the bride and her attendants to process in.
There is also an upper balcony in the rear of the sanctuary.
The church was originally built in the 1880s and the acoustics are wonderful. It is such a fabulous place for a wedding. Many couples use Marbles in the same block for their reception or the Sheraton or Marriott Hotels nearby.

To find out about Long View Center for your wedding, you can call Diane McDaniel with Unity Church of the Triangle to set up a meeting and view the facility. Her phone is (919) 832-8324 Ext. 51 or email her at The website is under construction.
