Westminster Presbyterian Church has a simplified fee structure for weddings and related activities that cover the majority of the basic costs associated with the wedding.
In addition to the non-refundable fee of $150 to reserve the date of your wedding ceremony, the basic fee for a wedding service in the Sanctuary, the Chapel or the Adult Lounge is determined by the size of your wedding party and whether or not you are a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church. For members of the Church, the fee for a small wedding party (four or fewer bridal attendants) is $1,600 and for a large wedding party (five or more bridal attendants) the cost is $2,200. For non-members who have received the permission of the Session to be married in the church, the fee for a small wedding party is $2,500 and $3,000 for a large bridal party.
This fee covers the use of the facility and the costs of the Presiding Minister, Wedding Coordinator(s), an audio engineer, an organist or pianist, church-owned candelabras, aisle candleholders, unity candles and holders, microphones, and custodians.
Additional services such as a videographer, vocalists or musicians can be arranged for an additional fee. Honoraria for guest musicians should be made according to prior arrangements with musicians.
The Payne Garden Court and Campbell Social Hall are available for wedding receptions for a fee of $500 for church members and $1,000 for non-members. The fee covers the room use, Wedding Coordinator(s), and custodians.
Approximately four weeks before your wedding, you will receive the invoice for the fees for your wedding service and reception if you choose to have one in the church. Payment is due no later than ten days before your service and may be made by a check made payable to Westminster Presbyterian Church. We do not accept credit or debit cards.
Payments may be hand-delivered to the Executive Assistant to the Pastor/Head of Staff or returned via mail to the Westminster Presbyterian Church address listed on the invoice.
If you or your wedding party have not complied with the general facility guidelines as outlined in this policy, additional charges may be added to your wedding fee. The Wedding Coordinator and custodians will determine your compliance. In the event of non-compliance or damage, additional charges will be determined and billed through the office of the Director of Finance and Administration.
