The McPherson Wedding Venue & Event Center

The Central West Ends Newest Venue

The Historic McPherson Chapel begins a new life as The McPherson Wedding Venue and Event Center, after two years of renovations & modernization.


The McPherson is perfect for weddings, rehearsal dinners, reunions, bar mitzvahs, graduations, holiday parties and corporate meetings.


  • Original architectural details with state of the art audio and mood lighting systems.

  • A private 5,500 square foot courtyard in the rear of the building to host outdoor weddings or events. A special wedding gazebo in the courtyard will allow brides to have the outdoor wedding they always wanted with the security of knowing that the event can easily be moved inside if the weather does not comply.

  • Both the Groom’s Room & Bridal Suite are on site. The Bridal Suite is over 700 square feet and includes a private restroom, salon quality makeup and hair counter that can seat five and a lounge area with couches, refrigerator and video monitoring of the main hall so that the bride’s party can watch as the guests arrive.

  • Valet parking is not required as The McPherson offers a private parking lot for 80 cars. In addition, there is a portico for the bridal party’s limousine and a covered drop off area to use during inclement weather.
