Our venue is perfect for photo shoots. Lots can be done to the space to transform it and natural light is abundant. Is also versatile for holding space and production office needs. To keep our space affordable, set up and clean up is up to you! You may move items, we just ask that you return them to their original place after your rental. Please note that the decorations in the space (such as the swooping cloth pictured in the photograph) changes in accordance with the season. We can provide you with information about the specific decorations during your rental time. St. Lydia's is a small storefront church space that also hosts rentals! We are a progressive, GLBTQ-affirming congregation working together to dispel isolation, reconnect neighbors, and subvert the status quo. Proceeds from all rentals are in direct support of St. Lydia's.

We had our baby shower at the location. It was perfect for the atmosphere and vibe we were wanted to capture. Julia was very responsive and the space was advertised, the decor does change slightly based on season but does not dramatically change from what is pictured.
Booking this through Julia was such a great experience. The space is wonderful, and we look forward to our next event here. Julia is very prompt and easy to work with.
Beautiful space to host a bridal shower. Our bride loved the decor and there was plenty of seating for all guests. The space was fully stocked with anything we needed from cake stands to serving trays to garbage and recycling bags and cleaning products. There was a slight miscommunication over timing but Julia handled gracefully and it didn’t significantly impact our event. Would absolutely book again!
Booking with Julia was easy and the space was great. We had a birthday party for my two year old and it was mostly a good fit. We had to seriously baby-proof the room though!
We booked Julia's beautiful space for my baby shower and it was the perfect venue. Julia was easy to work with and our guests couldn't stop commenting on how homey the space was. The full kitchen was such a bonus and the backyard space was key!
I booked this event space for a bridal shower and I absolutely loved it!!! Julia was extremely helpful and easy to work with. My favorite part about this space was the beautiful kitchen, fully equipped with all the supplies you’d need. Also, the rustic brick wall made a great backdrop for our photos. I would definitely recommend this space!
