Weddings & Holy Unions
The Worship Center’s high ceilings and numerous windows create an airy, spacious atmosphere for wedding and holy union ceremonies. Soaring windows overlooking picturesque Lake Merritt are situated on the west side of the center. A glass mosaic triptych, designed and rendered in the early 1920’s under the direct supervision of Louis C. Tiffany, is displayed on the north wall, providing an exquisite backdrop for your wedding.
The contemporary design of this room features comfortable chairs and a moveable platform, allowing for various seating configurations accommodating up to 250 people in upholstered chairs. Normally there are approximately 165 chairs set up. We can also take down chairs to suit a smaller group. We often change the room arrangement during the year to meet the needs of our worship services, so the layout of chairs and the platform may be facing the windows, the Tiffany Panels, or in a circle in the center of the room.
Our sound system with multiple microphones will meet the needs of most ceremonies, and you are welcome to bring a CD to be played through our sound system. A Yamaha grand piano is located in the Worship Center to be used by your musician(s). Our three manual and pedal pipe organ may be played by a qualified organist.
All weddings held/performed on the complex will be officiated by the Pastor of LMUMC, Rev. Pamela Kurtz. Couples must also meet with the Pastor prior to the ceremony for premarital counseling.
We invite you to make an appointment to come and see the church for yourself!
