Planning Your Wedding at Calvary United Methodist Church
The wedding ceremony is one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the entire day, so choosing the perfect venue to swap vows is important. Between the stone exterior, carved wooded details and vibrant stained glass, there’s nothing about this church that you won’t love!
There are three time options for a wedding at the church – morning, early afternoon and evening. From entrance to exit, wedding parties have a two-and-a-half hour window, and an additional hour for the rehearsal. Since the church is one of the most beautiful in Pittsburgh, slots fill up quickly – submit your payment and contract as soon as you can to ensure you get the wedding date you want! The modest rate for a ceremony includes use of the church sanctuary, as well as the wedding hostess, organist and the rehearsal, in addition to the wedding ceremony itself.
Once at Calvary United Methodist Church, your package will include the use of a Wedding Hostess, who will work to help throughout the rehearsal and wedding ceremony. When working with other vendors, you will need to coordinate with the wedding hostess prior to the ceremony to allow access – always set this up in advance to keep the time around the wedding day as stress-free as possible.
