First Baptist of Richmond will allow you to use your own Minister. You just have to use the Chapel which is really pretty

First Baptist was so great to work with and they allow you to have your Minister.

I had my reception at the Marriott West and the food was so phenomenal..I travel every week so I know great food and their chef is excellent and so easy to work with.

No R&B only songs that appropriate for a church setting. We used a few standard wedding songs and it turned out great.

The church is very flexible.

Also, not very expensive about $700 and really the only flowers that you need are at the alter. They have a lot of candles and that is what we used. We had 2 Poinsettias at the alter and then probably 30 candles along with those in the window.

We also used latterns in the pews. They were electric candles.

My wedding planner was great. Weddings by Windy
