Old St Hilary’s is situated on a hillside overlooking Belvedere and the San Francisco skyline. This simple redwood structure, built in 1888, is surrounded by a rare wildflower preserve. It is one of the few carpenter Gothic churches to survive in its original setting. The simple white painted exterior encloses interior walls of redwood and Douglas fir, and historic oak pews. The interior is lit by replicas of the original oil-burning chandeliers, and the Gothic windows of amber glass cast a warm and inviting glow. Take your wedding vows in an uncluttered space that embraces you with a sense of peace and tranquility. A Premiere Marin wedding site with water views.
