“Thank you for a most wonderful dinner you prepared for our wedding guests. The food was superlative and the service was impeccable. We all have wonderful memories of that Saturday thanks to your care and delivery.” – Lee L. 

Wedding: Rob and Lauren-447St. David’s is a lovely venue for wedding celebrations. We have three worship spaces and our outdoor Labyrinth to choose from plus ample parking and facilities to host a rehearsal dinner and/or reception. Our Historic Church provides a beautiful setting for a wedding, seating up to 425 guests, in a worship space with lots of history and adornment. Bethell Hall is a more modern setting, with seating for up to 200 guests. For a smaller wedding, Grace Chapel is a lovely little space, accommodating up to 30 guests. We invite you to also visit our outdoor Labyrinth. Complete with flowers, white lights, and a water feature, this outdoor area provides a beautiful space for bridal portraits and “first look” photos of the bride and groom prior to the ceremony.

Holy Matrimony is a Sacrament of the Church, and therefore there are some guidelines for being married at St. David’s:

  • Either the bride or the groom should be an active member of the church. This means they are here more Sundays than not.
  • The member needs to have made an annual giving pledge of financial commitment and be involved in some form of continuing Christian formation. There are exceptions to this rule, especially if the bridal couple has family ties to St. David’s.
  • All couples planning to get married at St. David’s are required to take pre-marital counseling. We have three pre-marital counselors that we recommend, or you can discuss alternative counseling with the clergy who will officiate at your wedding.
