Scheduling Your Wedding

    Weddings can be scheduled up to 15 months in advance. Once you have chosen a date for your special event then we will work with you to schedule your rehearsal for the day prior to your wedding.

    In addition, all couples are required to meet with the Pastor officiating their wedding at least one month prior to their wedding date to get acquainted and discuss specific plans regarding the ceremony.

    To receive "member status" you must be a member of St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church at least 60 days prior to your reserving the Church.

Music

    Your service of marriage is a service of worship. The wedding therefore should reflect the focus that characterizes all worship services. If someone other than the church organist is providing instrumental or vocal music for your service, please be sure to discuss your possible selections with the Pastor officiating your marriage. Please speak with the Pastor should you require an organist for your special event.

Decorations

    Flowers, candles and decorations may be placed around the Church as desired. For decoration purposes the Church consists of 12 pews on each side of the church (24 in total) down the main aisle and the balcony consists of 4 rows of pews and 3 rows of individual seats.

    We ask that all flowers, candles and decorations be removed immediately following your pictures.

Photography

    Pictures may be taken prior to and after the ceremony. We ask that the photographers and videographers not be in the sanctuary during the ceremony.
