Weddings

 

IMG_1499Congratulations! Thank you for considering Asbury United Methodist Church for your wedding ceremony. We celebrate your love as a gift from God, and our pastor, Tracy Mooney, strives not only to make your wedding day special, but also to support and strengthen your relationship for a lifetime of love. Our beautiful, traditional sanctuary seats 225 people and features an Allen organ, Kawai baby grand piano in the raised chancel, as well as projection, lighting, and sound systems.

Our pastor, a certified Prepare/Enrich relationship facilitator, will guide you through the process of ceremony planning and pre-marriage counseling. When you schedule your wedding, our pastor will send you information about taking an online Prepare/Enrich survey (the cost is $35, payable online by credit card) that will help our pastor tailor three marriage preparation sessions specifically to your relationship. During these conversations, you will:

  • Identify your strength and growth areas as a couple
  • Strengthen your communication skills – sharing and listening to each other with love
  • Practice resolving conflicts together and reducing stress

*To reserve your wedding date at Asbury, complete and return the Asbury Wedding Guidelines and Application (pages 3-6) with your payment of $750 (preferably by check to Asbury UMC). Our Administrative Assistant will confirm your wedding date by email upon receipt of the form and payment. This payment includes:

  • Building Use Fee
  • Honorarium for Pastor
  • Honorarium for Organist/Pianist
  • Fee for Custodian/Coordinator

We will arrange an instrumentalist, who may or may not be part of our staff, who will contact you to plan music for your ceremony and coordinate with our pastor. This honorarium does not include rehearsal time on the night of the wedding rehearsal.

For information on holding your wedding reception in our Fellowship Hall, contact our Administrative Assistant for pricing and availability (through our Church Office). Please be aware that alcohol is not permitted in any of Asbury UMC’s facilities.

Please contact the Church Office if you have any questions.
