Let's make your wedding planning easy

Weddings at the Unitarian Universalist church can be celebrated any way you desire. Whether you wish to celebrate in our beautiful 400-seat English Country Gothic church or prefer one of our ministers preside at the location of your choice, we are happy to accommodate. We welcome all backgrounds and faiths to our church. We are also happy to host your wedding here if you prefer an outside officiant.
