The Monastery provides etched personalized champagne flutes for the Bride & Groom as keepsakes. Notably, your champagne toast features The Monastery’s private labeled “Golden Wedding” bubbly.

It achieved recognition and awards across the Atlantic. This piece of history is unique to your special event and is memorialized in your glass flutes.

The property is on the historic registry and it is being vigilantly kept intact. Additionally, it has been awarded LEED Certification through a careful restoration focused upon the environment. The USGBC states LEED properties save “resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.” It is meaningful to a community when the interests of historic preservation can lock arms with the concerns for safeguarding the environment and advance together into a better future—honoring the past and respecting our children’s future. [USGBC: “LEED stands for green building leadership transforming the way we think about how buildings & communities are maintained and operated across the globe.”]
