Venue Highlight: Chase Court in historic Mount Vernon

Chase Court is one of our all time favorite venues in which to photograph weddings.  The architectural detail of the building along with the lush jewel like garden provide gorgeous backdrops from which to photograph brides and grooms.  

The building at 1112 St. Paul Street and now known as Chase Court was built in 1879 as the parish house of Christ Episcopal Church.  The latter was built in the 1871 corner of St. Paul and Chase Streets. Both building are constructed of stone with arched, diamond leaded glass windows, historic woodwork and soaring ceilings, all in the Gothic style.   In the late 1980s, Christ Episcopal Church ceased to exit and the church and parish house were separated and sold.  The church building was sold to a local congregation and the building and grounds that comprise of Chase Court are now privately owned.

Chase Court features a 1600 square foot Ballroom (seating 125) with a 15′ ceiling, a 400 square foot library overlooking the garden and a picture perfect Bride’s Room, also with a delightful view of the Garden.

Gorgeous flowers by Flowers and Fancies.
