We invite all couples to consider being married at our beautiful and historic church. It is the perfect setting for your special day! Our pastors are happy to work with you to customize your wedding ceremony.
We celebrate many weddings every year, each with a great deal of care and detail. Our goal is to provide you with a personalized service that reflects the love, commitment, faith and joy you share.
First Parish is a beautiful and historic place to be married. Built in 1747, the church has a simplicity and beauty that works so well for wedding ceremonies. Many find that our church sanctuary perfectly fits their dream of a traditional church wedding. While small enough to be intimate, our sanctuary supports the capacity of 300 people. Most of our weddings are for about 100 guests.
First Parish has an exceptional organist and Director of Music to serve you on this special occasion. If you do not wish to have an organist or pianist, please let the Church know when scheduling your wedding.
First Parish Church has a number of excellent soloists. They are happy to sing at weddings and are accustomed to singing with our organists/pianists. Alternately, you can arrange for your own soloist. Soloists usually rehearse with the organist an hour & an half before the ceremony. Soloists should come to the ceremony with copies of their music for the organist.
We look forward to hosting one of the most memorable and significant days of your life. Please call 207-363-3758
