Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions

Congratulations! The members of First Parish rejoice with you as you anticipate your wedding day. We welcome your interest in our facilities and hope to answer many of your questions in these pages.

At First Parish, we believe our flexibility sets us apart. You do not need to be a member of First Parish to use our facilities. Your ceremony and reception are arranged independently.
