Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate.
~ Mark 10:9 ~
Welcome to Our Church
Coral Gables Congregational belongs to the United Church of Christ, a progressive Protestant denomination with a rich legacy of sharing God’s love for all people. Established in 1923, Coral Gables Congregational UCC is the oldest church in Coral Gables, and has the distinction of being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
We welcome all people, regardless what your faith tradition or sexual orientation may be, to be united in marriage in our sanctuary. We also invite you to attend our worship services on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. to become better acquainted with our church family and its beliefs.
A wedding ceremony is a sacred rite of the church. A respectful demeanor is required. The ministers of the church conduct all of our weddings. Should you wish participation by another clergy member, it will be at our pastors’ discretion.
Ceremonies may be conducted in Spanish upon request.
Sanctuary Ceremony Availability
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Besides the wedding license issued by the courthouse, we require that the couple meet with the officiating minister no later than two months prior to the wedding to plan their personal and meaningful ceremony. We do not require baptismal certificates, proof of church attendance, or pre-marital workshops.
A temporary hold, for five days, may be placed on an available time slot. We require a non-refundable/non-transferable deposit of $500 (which is applied to the total) to secure a date within the five days. This deposit must be brought to the church during the available hours of the Wedding Coordinator and a contract must be signed.
The cost for all Sanctuary weddings, for all times, is $2,000. No exceptions. This includes the pastor, organist and the vocalist, the consultation, the rehearsal, candelbras, aisle runner, kneeling bench, and custodial fee. The total costs for the ceremony must be received 90 days after the deposit is made or 60 days before the date of the wedding, whichever comes first.
A deposit of $500 is required to reserve your wedding date. This deposit applies to the $2,000 wedding cost and is non-refundable and non-transferable.
