Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate.

~ Mark 10:9 ~

Congratulations!

We know you want to have a unique and memorable ceremony in a beautiful setting that reflects the love and peace of your commitment to one another. We also know it is often stressful to handle all the details that go into such a momentous occasion, especially when you want your wedding day to be perfect. After all, where you have your ceremony begins your life long journey together as a married couple.

Welcome to Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ, a charming and idyllic Spanish Colonial Revival setting for an elegant wedding. Located in the heart of Coral Gables and just minutes away from Miami International Airport, our sanctuary accommodates up to 450 guests. Built in 1923, it is the oldest church in Coral Gables and is a designated landmark on the National Register of Historic Places.

Since 1925, our warm and caring staff have been performing weddings here, helping thousands of couples start their life journey together by celebrating in our lovely sanctuary.

We welcome all couples, regardless of preferred faith, sexual orientation, race or language to be married in our church. Our ceremonies may be conducted in English or Spanish. Additionally, unlike many other churches, we don’t request baptismal certificates, proof of church attendance, or pre-marital workshops…only a marriage license application. We strive to make it as easy as possible for a couple to plan their wedding with the blessings of God.

We’ve also put together an affordable ceremony package that conveniently bundles all the items needed for your perfect wedding.

CEREMONY PACKAGE

The cost for all of our church weddings, no matter the day or time, is $2,000.00. A temporary five-day hold may be placed for an available day/time slot by contacting the Events Coordinator. In order to secure the date within the hold period, a non-refundable/non-transferable deposit of $500 will need to be made (the deposit is applied to the total fee). This deposit must be brought to the church during the hours of the Event Coordinator and a contract must be signed. The balance of $1,500 must be received within 90 days after the deposit is made or 60 days before the wedding date, whichever comes first. Your ceremony package includes:

  • Our Pastor to officiate the ceremony.
  • Consultation with our Pastor prior to the ceremony. Besides the marriage license application, we require that each couple meet with the officiating clergy no later than two months prior to the wedding to plan their personal and meaningful ceremony.
  • Wedding Rehearsal
  • Candelabras, aisle runner, kneeling bench, and custodial fee.
  • Our organist and a vocal soloist to perform up to five pieces of music – The Bridal Party Processional, The Bridal Processional, two vocal solos, and the Recessional. Our organist will also provide appropriate pre-service music.

Although we do not hold wedding receptions here, there are many beautiful venues located very near the church. Our Events Coordinator can offer suggestions based on your needs and budget to help with your wedding planning.
