Weddings

 

We welcome and celebrate couples of same genders, different genders, faiths and backgrounds and strive to ensure that your wedding day is a joyous event. Your wedding ceremony should be and can be what you want it to be; a beautiful and appropriate ceremony of celebration. Our staff may assist you in customizing your ceremony so it will accurately reflect your ideas, ideals and personalities. The wedding ceremony is the heart of your wedding day.

We approach weddings with dignity and humor, and that engages each person. A wedding should be joy-filled and a participatory experience for all attending, so that each person attending leaves with their own relationship renewed. We appreciate the opportunity to offer guidance, yet be flexible, open and adventurous with a couples’ crafting of the ceremony. It is all significant because God is present and invites us to the party of community, relationships and above all, love!

sanctuary

Step from the Narthex into the Sanctuary, a “wow”-inspiring hall built in 1905 with soaring arches and gothic detailing. Its grandeur is accentuated by ten stained-glass windows, described as “some of the finest west of the Mississippi,” and a large chandelier which illuminate the darkly wooded interior, lending it a feeling of splendor that is equal parts solemnity and warmth. The original hardwood floors offer excellent acoustic for your music. The setting communicates dignity, intimacy, and God’s glory. St. John’s is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. 

The Sanctuary sits 350 maximum.
