YOUR WEDDING AT REVERIE

“We had the most amazing experience with Reverie! ..The chapel is absolutely stunning and the bridal suite is breathtaking. Even the guys had a room to get ready in the grooms suite! It is designed to be simple and modern, so we didn’t need to spend thousands on decorating the space- it’s truly beautiful on its own! “

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How can I schedule a tour with Reverie?

We would love to show you our space and setting up your tour is as easy as following this link or calling Sarah Forschner, our Reverie Coordinator at 937-353-7313

How many people fit in the Chapel and Banquet Hall?

Our standard set up for the Chapel seats 300 comfortably though we can fit a few more if the cousins from Texas show up. Our Reception Hall is customizable so it can be changed around to fit your needs. Depending on your table choice, we can seat around 250 people and still have room for a large dance floor. If your dancing is tame and can handle a smaller floor, we can fit up to 275 guests.

Do you allow alcohol?

We have a beer and wine policy only (no liquor allowed) and all alcohol must be served by an approved and insured Caterer or Bartender.  Here is a link to our alcohol policy, but do not hesitate to contact us with any other questions you may have.

Can I bring my own Vendors?

ABSOLUTELY!  We are an OPEN VENDOR venue and want to give our couples the flexibility to choose whatever best fits their needs.  We would be glad to share our Preferred Vendors list with some of the top Vendors in our area.

Do you provide an Officiant or can I find my own?

 If you would like, we have several Licensed Pastors on staff and would be happy to provide you with a list of names.  If you prefer to book your own officiant, they must be licensed in the State of Ohio (or a state that Ohio accepts).  They will also need to speak to our Pastoral lead.  Contact us to talk this through.

Is Reverie Handicap Accessible

Our entire facility is Accessible. We offer Handicap Parking right outside of our main entrance, push button Handicap Access Doors at our main entrance, Handicap Restrooms, Handicap Access Ramp to our Chapel stage and designated Handicap Reserved Seating in our Chapel.

Can we decorate on our own?

Though we pride ourselves on giving you a beautiful canvas to start with, you are welcome to make our space your own.  Our only restrictions are no tape, tacks or nails used to fasten anything to our wood, fabric or painted surfaces.  Please see any of our staff for other decorating questions you may have.

Are their Hotels with Shuttle Services nearby?

YES.  Reverie is located just minutes off of I-75 and I-675 with a large selection of Hotels, restaurants and entertainment around every corner.

Do you allow real candles?

No open flames allowed inside Reverie. Battery operated candles only. Exceptions are with stand alone moments as in a Unity Candle Ceremony.

FORMS

Congratulations!

“This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together. ”

- Mark 10: 7-9

STEP 2 | PRE MARITAL MENTORING PROGRAM INFORMATION & FORM

Premarital Mentoring Overview


SouthBrook offers a ministry designed to help couples build a Christ-centered marriage that will last a lifetime, be a light to the world, and leave a legacy for future generations. While this ministry is available to all couples, it is required for any couple being married by one of our Pastors.

Your premarital mentoring will begin by taking a professionally developed assessment. This assessment is analyzed by the Christian organization, Life Innovations, and returned to SouthBrook. You will be assigned a mentoring couple, prayerfully selected just for you. Premarital mentoring couples are volunteers who have been trained in using this assessment. Mentoring sessions can be couple on couple or in small groups. The mentoring couples are also mature Christians with longstanding marriages and will meet with you up to six times to discuss the following:

  • Marriage Expectations
  • Personality Issues
  • Communication
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Financial Management
  • Leisure Activities
  • Sexual Expectations
  • Sexual Purity
  • Children and Parenting
  • Family and Friends
  • Role Relationship
  • Spiritual Beliefs

Your mentors will design your time together to address the specific areas that are most pertinent in your relationship. There will be some “homework” for the two of you to further discuss these areas of your lifetime partnership. You should leave these mentoring sessions with new insights and more realistic expectations of what your marriage will be like. In the years to come, your mentors can be a valuable resource as your relationship continues to evolve.

After submitting the appropriate forms and applicable fees, you will be contacted to schedule a time to take the assessment and start the premarital mentoring process.

 


Pre-Marital Commitment


The Pastoral Staff at SouthBrook would like to encourage you to consider accepting a challenge to commit, with your fiance(é), to abstain from sexual intimacy from today until your Wedding, regardless of whether or not you’ve already engaged physically prior to today. This challenge would be a commitment between God, your fiance(é) and yourself.

Couples who have taken this challenge have thanked us for encouraging them to accept it. We believe accepting this challenge can allow you to have true intimacy – “into me you see” – providing time to really get to know and grow together by having quality conversations and sharing mutual dreams for the future. It also brings a higher level of anticipation, making the beginning of your marriage even more special.

This is not just a random challenge from SouthBrook. This is God’s heart. In 1 Corinthians, chapters 6 & 7, Paul points out that God discourages sex outside of marriage. But also that God encourages it inside of marriage as His gift to us! If you would like to talk with anyone about this, your Officiating Pastor or Marriage Mentors will be happy to discuss it with you. You could also take some time to look through the verses referenced above.

Financial Classes

To begin your marriage with financial stability, please consider the following classes:

Money Matter$ 101

This class teaches the basics of scripturally-based personal financial management and how you can apply the 10/10/80 rule to your life through giving, saving, and budgeting. We also focus on debt management and the steps to take that will help you get out of debt.

Financial Peace University

For more in-depth financial management, we offer Financial Peace University, a 9-week scripturally-based course featuring personal money management expert, Dave Ramsey. The class teaches how to achieve financial goals by eliminating debt, saving for the future, and giving like never before. You will be challenged and motivated to make a plan for your money.

While we do not require these financial classes prior to your Wedding, we strongly encourage it. We understand it may be difficult to coordinate schedules, so if it does not work before your Wedding, please try to attend at your next available opportunity. Visit SouthBrook.org for the next available class.
