A tray that ran along the inside back of all pews was used to store Bibles and Hymnals for use during services. The very first row only had the hand rails shown here.

Here was one example of the several modest-sized stained glass windows that lined both interior side walls. Daylight shining through these windows provided a soft glow to the pews.

Just to the right of the main entrance into the church was a small rose garden. During the wedding it provided a handy backdrop for folks to take pictures of their own small groups.
