(Disciples of Christ)


We recommend the use of a professional florist, rather than family and friends decorating the Sanctuary/Chapel. The amount of time involved and the amount of materials needed are often difficult for nonprofessionals to anticipate. As a result, important details may be overlooked, which can create undue stress on you, your family and our staff during one of the most important days in your life.

All floral or other decorative arrangements must be approved by the wedding coordinator. The church provides two candelabra on the chancel. Chancel furnishing may not be moved or rearranged without permission. Floral arrangements must have bases that will protect our carpeting and furnishings from moisture, dirt or other damage. No tacks, nails, or tape may be used to attach decorative items. Ribbons, rubber bands and pipe cleaners may be used to attach arrangements to the chairs and candelabra.  

The florist is responsible for cleaning up debris from floral or decorative arrangements. Any apparatus brought in by the florist must be removed immediately following the ceremony. Our staff will dispose of any items left after the wedding. Please provide a name and address of your florist, a Florist Agreement stating the above policies will be mailed to your florist to be signed and returned to the wedding coordinator at the church.

Unity candles and holders should be provided by the bride and groom as well as guest books, aisle runners and the communion elements if the couple chooses to take communion during the ceremony.
