Wedding Application and Fees

The schedule of fees is as follows:


A deposit of $150 dollars is required to secure the wedding date and time. The deposit will be forfeited if the wedding is cancelled. The deposit will be returned after the wedding provided church standards and policies were respected, no damage occurred and the keys to the building have been returned.

Member custodial fees for clean up

  • Bride’s Room, Parlor, Sanctuary – $300.00
  • Fellowship Hall (reception only) – $25.00/Hour
  • Both Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall – $300.00
  • Courtyard – $50.00

Wedding Fees

  • Ministers – {includes premarital counseling sessions, wedding rehearsal, and wedding service}  An honorarium is traditionally given to the officiating minister.  Since each minister’s premarital requirements vary so does the expected honorarium.  After your officiating minister has been selected the church wedding coordinator will inform you of those amounts.
  • Organist – $300.00 members
  • Wedding Director – $350.00 members
  • An honorarium is traditionally offered to the officiating minister when assisting in the service with a guest minister.  Please contact the church wedding coordinator for this information.

All checks or payment of fees should be turned in to the Wedding Coordinator two weeks prior to the wedding service.   Payment for custodial services should be made to First Presbyterian Church. Checks to the minister, organist and wedding director should be made out to the individual.

First Presbyterian Church does not ordinarily perform weddings for non-members. Requests for non-member weddings will be considered on a case by case basis. Please contact our Wedding Coordinator Lucy Bell Johnson for more information.

If you are interested in holding your wedding at First Presbyterian Church, please submit this Wedding Application.
