This is the church we attend so when it came time to pick a venue for the ceremony, it was either here or someplace outside. Since I’m a control freak, I decided I couldn’t handle the added stress of bad weather (good decision on my part since it happened to rain on our wedding day). They have a wedding coordinator that helps walk you through everything. Her name is Sharon and she’s super helpful and super responsive to questions. The church itself is stunning so that’s a big bonus. I did very little decorating and I received tons of compliments on how amazing it was.
Here was the only issue we had. They had an interim pastor when we put our deposit down. They found a new permanent pastor 4 months out from the wedding. The new pastor said he wouldn’t marry us without meeting us or giving us any reason other than he didn’t think 4 months was enough time to do the counseling he wanted to do. Mind you we’re 30 and 38 years old, not 18. The previous pastor had told us only 3 meetings were required with him, no counseling. It ended up working out since they asked one of the retired pastors to marry us and we really enjoyed him. I don’ think we’ll be going back to church here because of the way the new pastor handled our situation however.
