Kaplan Parish Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. Jen Murtha was extremely helpful from our first walk through all the way to our grand exit on our wedding day. The Zahn Lobby was a great spot for the bar, and we enjoyed the beautiful wood dance floor in KPH. We are so grateful we could celebrate at KPH. This venue is highly recommended.
Ellie and Jake Ceremony and Reception 2019
I had my reception here, and it was beautiful. I fully recommend the knowledgeable staff and beautiful reception hall for any wedding. We had about 80 guests, but we could have fit many more. If you're considering them, go for it. You won't be disappointed
We chose Kaplan Parish Hall for our daughter, Meghan's wedding reception for a number of reasons. First, it's hard to beat the convenience of its location if you are having the wedding ceremony itself at St. Bede Catholic Church. It is also a newer facility that is quite beautiful. It really requires minimal decoration. As others have pointed out, it had plenty of room for dinner & dancing. For context, we had approx 120 guests. The layout was also great, with the Zahn Lobby for appetizers, guest book, gift table, etc., during cocktail hour. The spacious & well-equipped kitchen was also appreciated by our caterer, Williamsburg Concessions & Catering. The many large windows made for great lighting during the afternoon, and the courtyard & covered portico was great for photos. Maybe the best part of Kaplan Parish Hall was Jenn Murtha, the Event Coordinator @ St. Bede She was a wealth of knowledge & full of helpful suggestions. She also has a great list of vendors for Caterers, Dj's (we used Jay Daum), florists, guest lodging, etc. It was just a no-brainer of a decision for us.
Thank you for all your help with making our wedding a wonderful day. Everything was perfect, we couldn't ask for anything better.
Allison and Seth Barrow 2018 Ceremony and Reception
Jennifer Murtha and her team at St. Bede's Kaplan Parish Hall are unfailingly friendly, helpful, and accommodating. When we've held our annual ball there Jennifer has been on-site throughout the long day's activities, making sure we have what we need and that everything runs smoothly with the facility; ahead of the event she's been very flexible with arranging meetings to view spaces and learn building policies. Our guests have also been impressed: Kaplan Parish Hall offers a lovely facility with plenty of parking and easy access (no stairs necessary!).
