One of the most impacting events in the lives of any couple is when those two persons unite spiritually and formally, in Holy matrimony, before God, family and cherished friends.
This is the one event that can never be matched… a precious moment in time to be remembered forever. And, where this wedding takes place is paramount to those wonderful and spiritually motivated moments.
The architectural design of thechurch and sanctuary is truly unique, designed by the world famous Taliesin West Frank Lloyd Wright architects. Ascension is built in the shape of a pentagon, with five sides, instead of the usual four of most other buildings and interiors.
The five-sided design of the Ascension Sanctuary is not only beautiful to view, but also provides an unparalleled acoustical quality of voice and musical projection.
And, speaking of music, Ascension is proud to be home to one of Arizona ’s most distinguished pipe organs, an original Möller installation, which fills the sanctuary with the richest musical sounds that any physical structure could possibly contain.
The design of our Sanctuary also includes four special stained-glass windows (shown in “Campus Environment” web page) that contribute to an ever-changing lighting environment, changing moods every hour of the day.
