Weddings

Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant in the presence of God. Edenton Street United Methodist Church reserves its sanctuary and grounds for marriage ceremonies of its members and their family members.

The bride, the groom or their parents must have a direct affiliation with ESUMC in order to be married in the sanctuary or chapel. Before proceeding with any wedding plans, please check with Gwen Cummings, Administrative Assistant to Discipleship Ministries, to determine your eligibility and availability of the date.

ESUMC enjoys a tradition of excellence in music which it wishes to maintain in all events that involve music, including weddings. Weddings in the church are regarded as worship services and the selected music must be sacred. The Minister of Music approves all musical selections before they can be used in the service. Secular music will not be approved.

Reservations for weddings may be made no more than one year in advance of the wedding date. We invite you to view our wedding policy for any questions you may have.
