Style #Old South Church UCC

Old South United Church of Christ allows couples to have a memorable wedding ceremony by renting out its historic 1859 sanctuary and stunning outdoor amphitheater, the Dell. As we strive to live out our calling to serve God and others, we see this as a crucial component of our ministry. We are eager to work with you to make this the successful start to a long and happy life together. In order to ensure that the required space and staff are available, weddings are scheduled in conjunction with other church events. If your preferred date is available, the church office will be able to confirm it. All year long, weddings can be held indoors. From the first Saturday in June through the last Saturday in September, Dell hosts weddings.


Weddings scheduled for the Dell will be moved inside the sanctuary in case of bad weather. Old South Church's full wedding package costs $1200. The following services are covered by this fee: Minister-led counseling sessions Your wedding ceremony Venue rental Wedding coordinator services Sound technician services Custodian services. Upon making a reservation, a $550 non-refundable deposit is required. The package rate does not include musician fees. It is our policy to have our organist play for all weddings if you request one. To confirm a date and fee, the office can give you the organist's name and contact information. You are free to use pre-recorded music or bring your own musicians. Please be aware that fees are not negotiable and could change.

The wedding must take place at least three months after a contract is signed. Only after the non-refundable deposit has been received are the dates confirmed. The Old South United Church of Christ's pastoral staff officiates weddings. The pastoral staff must first approve any outside officiant. Before the wedding day, planning meetings with the minister must be finished. These meetings are designed to help the minister get to know you better and work with you to design the ceremony. Weddings on Saturdays can be planned for any time in the day or in the early evening. If you would like a non-Saturday wedding, kindly check with the church office. No animals are allowed to take part in the wedding ceremony.

Smoking and drinking are not permitted inside any church structures or on church property. About 180 people can be seated in the Dell and the sanctuary together. This includes the balcony and the chairs in the back of the sanctuary. The vestibule's double interior doors are 45 feet away from the sanctuary's center aisle. Aisle runners cannot be used in the Dell due to safety concerns. A wedding coordinator will be assigned to you to help with the preparations at the church for your service. At both the rehearsal and the ceremony, the coordinator will help the minister with the specifics and protocol. Calls can be made to this coordinator while things are being prepared. Two hours before your service, the wedding coordinator will open the church.

Except for the bridal entrance (from halfway down the center aisle) and the couple's post-ceremony exit from the back, no flash photography is allowed during the ceremony. Only available light must be used to take any other pictures, which must be taken from the balcony or vestibule. If desired, certain parts of the ceremony may be re-posed before or after the ceremony, but please make an effort to finish your photography in a timely manner. Videotaping must be done in the light of the moment from the balcony. The worship of God is the sole purpose of Old South Church. Wedding parties and their guests are expected to treat the venue with respect for its intended use by adhering to all posted rules.  


Once you find your wedding venue, it is easier to imagine your dream wedding dress. Imagine entering the venue arm-in-arm with all your guests’ eyes upon you. Your first dance awaits you. What is your wedding gown style, A-line, boho, ballgown, mermaid, or other silhouettes?


With your venue date set, a few quick yet fun decisions are needed to coordinate the wedding date. Be sure to schedule your ceremony location soon, too. Looking for alternative wedding ceremony locations? Perhaps, a local park or beach is the spot to exchange your vows and capture memories. The journey ahead is bound to fill with excitement and joy. Wedding photographers can book a year in advance of your wedding date, so be sure to hire a wedding photographer in short order that meets your vision and personality. And, of course, let’s remember your out-of-town wedding guests. Let them know that you researched their accommodation options, whether a hotel or a private rental house, as the guests, will appreciate this.


Finally, an easy and momentous step of your wedding planning – get your official wedding license.
