Welcome to The Annex

Exquisite. Graceful. Intimate. Gorgeous.

We are thrilled to introduce our "new," fabulous facility, The Annex. Located in the 1910 schoolhouse connected to and directly behind the iconic BAC church, The Annex has immediately become one of the premiere intimate rental venues on the East Coast.

Our reasonable rental fee includes

the full use of The Annex with a 15-hour rental timeframe. We can't imagine why any bride and groom would want to rush through their wedding day. We encourage you to slow down and remember every minute, every moment.

The Annex first floor

The first floor, originally home to classrooms that wrapped around an open, sunlit space with a small stage, is now the most beautiful cocktail lounge in the region, perfect for smaller parties, business meetings, and other gatherings that benefit from a stunning, historic setting.

 

The Annex Bridal Suite

The classrooms have been transformed into an elegant bridal suite, including salon, dressing room, living room, and eat-in kitchen.

 

the annex second floor

The second floor, the auditorium, with its 15-foot, original, beaded tongue-and-groove, heart pine ceilings and classic stage, is the ideal reception room, ceremony site, concert hall, or theater.

The venue accommodates weddings up to 120 guests; concerts and meetings and lectures up to 200 guests , and when joined with the BAC, large-scale events up to 900 guests.

The unparalleled service and attention to detail
our BAC clients have come to expect remains an
integral, inextricable component of The Annex as well.

We continue to work closely with the region's finest professional wedding planners and coordinators, caterers, florists, photographers and videographers, musicians, suppliers, and other preferred vendors.
