Gatherings is an amazing vintage church building that is now being used as a Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall. We offer full, value-packed packages as well as the venue rental alone.
We make budgeting easy; we even accept credit card payments! 
At Gatherings, our goal is to give you the wedding you've always dreamed of. A wedding that brings a rich legacy of history and beauty into your future. A wedding that you and your guests will delight in, hosted in a unique,
lovely, and richly appointed setting. Put family photos on the mantels; have your friend play the antique baby grand piano; make the mansion like setting yours..
Our wedding chapel was once home church to Governor Francis Pierpont, famous for helping make the only geographical change due to the Civil War; the creation of the State of West Virginia leading him to be called the "Father of West Virginia".
Red carpeting and solid cathedral oak pews and furnishings create a fabulous backdrop to the spectacular drapery glass stained glass windows.
Our Reception Hall
Our reception hall is mansion-like, adjoins the chapel and is also adorned in cathedral oak and stained glass.  Your guests will not have wander about between your ceremony and your reception celebration in Historic Downtown Fairmont, WV.

Please Note:  Dates are not confirmed until a hold date deposit is made and a contract signed. As there are only so many Saturdays wedding dates available, competition can be great for each date, and in fairness to the other couples, we cannot hold a date until we have a deposit and a contract.
