Weddings at the First Congregational Church:
We invite you to consider having your wedding ceremony here at the First Congregational Church. Please read on for some helpful information:
Each couple will meet with the Rev. Garrett-Larsen three times to develop a unique ceremony for their wedding. Your ceremony may be traditional, non-traditional, or a combination of elements which are special to you. Pastor Garrett-Larsen will also direct your wedding rehearsal for you.
Each couple will need to schedule a meeting with our organist, Denise Morphy, in order to select the special music which you would like before, during and after your ceremony. Our magnificent Johnson Pipe Organ has been completely refurbished, and Denise will be happy to play various pieces for you to help in making your decisions about music for your ceremony.
Our historic sanctuary, built in 1812, can comfortably accommodate wedding guests from 50 people to 700 people. With the white wood box pews, the upper surrounding balconies and the simplicity of the windows and the dark wood of the pulpit area, you will experience a sense of beauty, joy, and peace when you enter the sanctuary. It is a wonderful setting for a wedding.
A smaller, more intimate space is available in our chapel, adjacent to the church building. Built in 1873, this Gothic Revival gem features traditional stained glass windows with beautiful dark wood throughout. The chapel can easily accommodate up to 100 guests.
Our schedule of fees for holding your wedding in our sanctuary or chapel is linked here. Your wedding date will be reserved on our church calendar once the fees have been received.
For more information or to check the availability of a date on our calendar, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the church office at (585)394-2184.
We look forward to the possibility of planning and celebrating this special moment in your lives with you.
