Serenity at Its Best, Weddings at Their Most Beautiful
Offering a spectacular panoramic view of historic Mount Monadnock, beautiful gardens and more than 200 acre grounds, Cathedral of the Pines provides stunning backdrop for the most memorable wedding day photographs. With seating for up to 500, our main sanctuary is perfect for couples who expect to share their special day with a large number of friends and families or for those planning a more intimate affair.
Cathedral of the Pines is also available for couples wishing to celebrate their commitment to each other with a vow renewal ceremony. Whether you’ve been together for 5, 10, 25 or even 40 years, rededicating yourselves to each other at our Altar of the Nation, with your friends and family looking on, is a lovely way to celebrate the life you’ve built together.
