time and date of wedding

The initial request to schedule a wedding is made through the church office, where the church secretary will determine that the church calendar is clear for the proposed date and time. The Wedding Party (Party) will verify with the church secretary who will pencil in the date on the church master calendar. This does not constitute a firm commitment by either party. All reservations for weddings must be placed on the church calendar as early as possible. Reservations for the space are made by completing a Request for Wedding Reservation Application and submitting a deposit.

The Wedding Reservation Application must be filled out completely and returned to the church office with the deposit within two weeks of the initial request.

Non-members are welcome to have their wedding at SSBC, but Church members and Church programming will have first choice on dates and will be based on a first come, first served basis. 

No formal weddings or rehearsals may be scheduled during Holy Week, on Sundays, or on staff holiday weekends (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day). Weddings and Rehearsals may not be scheduled after 6:00 p.m. No non-member weddings may be scheduled during December. 

No other wedding or event will be scheduled for the building on the day of the wedding. Exceptions may be made by the SSBC Minister or the SSBC Executive Committee and will not interfere on the day of the wedding.
