As the very first Catholic Church in Troy, the building was built back in 1915. At the start of the century, it proudly served the community as a premier place of worship. In 2013, this Alabama historical site was restored to become a wedding and event venue that still cherishes many of the original features and same charm.
The Emporium fully embraces the character of such an iconic building. With a gorgeous brick exterior and charming, romantic interior, the venue is a wonderful way to add a bit of classic history to your wedding day.
Complete with original heart pine floors, historic chandeliers, stained glass windows, and unique wooden barrel ceilings, The Emporium offers a charming setting for milestone celebrations. The venue also features an outdoor courtyard that can be used as an additional space for your reception or ceremony, or for a casual cocktail hour. The beautifully restored building, from its original floors to its arched windows, sets the perfect backdrop for an elegant, vintage wedding. Here, couples can share their special days with up to 250 guests.
The Emporium offers two get-ready suites, two additional rooms, and a kitchen in the Chapman House adjacent to the building. The beautiful, quaint space of the Bella Rose Suite is the perfect, convenient way to get ready for your big day. The venue's team may also provide lighting and sound accommodations to set the tone for receptions. Full access to the venue's beautiful Chapman House is included in their weekend package options. Event essentials such as tables and chairs can also be provided.
The Emporium's courtyard is the perfect gathering spot for your event. Welcome your guests with cocktails outside while they enjoy the open air.
The Chapman House serves as a suite for the bride and groom on their wedding day, but there's more this historic cottage has to offer. From rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, corporate events, business meetings to bridal and baby showers. The Chapman House is an intimate venue for your special event!
The Chapman House has gabled dormers, and decorated Folk Victorian berge boards, an understated Greek Revival porch with Roman Tuscan columns and full floor length windows with decorative crowns. It is filled with historic cottage charm!
