First Presbyterian Church offers many wedding services to make your special day come true. Our sanctuary offers many wonderful amenities for weddings, and there are two distinct ceremony spaces to choose from. You may choose to host your family and friends in our grand Sanctuary featuring hand-carved pews and a full organ. For smaller ceremonies, the Chapel can accommodate up to 50 people.
