Weddings & Receptions - The combination of a beautiful, well-groomed campus and extensive offerings of facilities and services make Manchester an ideal spot for your wedding and/or reception or shower. Have your ceremony indoors in the quaint, inviting space of Petersime Chapel; or outdoors on the large, grassy mall, where space and folding chairs are limitless; or the intimate garden setting of the Muir Peace Garden. Manchester is truly the place for an inspired event!
Onsite catering and banquet facilities for up to 300 people make for an ideal reception site, whether in the Jo Young Switzer Center (the union), where we offer a choice of spaces, or under a tent in a natural outdoor setting. And you’ll have the benefit of our helpful Conference Services staff to help you with planning, so that you can focus on enjoying your special day to the fullest! Learn more about our catering and food services.
Other Banquet Options - Manchester offers the option of several facilities for large and small dinner meetings and banquets featuring comfort, attractiveness, air-conditioning, technology set-ups, and food accommodations. Our catering team works with you one-on-one to coordinate all your group’s meals, from cafeteria menus to truly elegant affairs, and can help you plan meals almost anywhere on campus. That might mean hors d’oeuvres outside a recital hall, a banquet in the Union, a pizza party in a residence hall or an outside picnic.
Our planning team will serve to arrange and coordinate your catering for banquets and dining on our Fort Wayne Campus as well. Read more about facilities and services available on the Fort Wayne campus >
