Love and marriage are gifts from God that we celebrate at Park Avenue United Methodist Church! If you are planning a wedding, please consider having it in our beautiful sanctuary with our professional clergy.

Elements of the Service for Christian Marriage at PAUMC include:

Pre-marital Counseling

This is an opportunity for you to grow closer to your future spouse and become better acquainted with the minister who will officiate your wedding.

The Rehearsal

Most wedding rehearsals occur the day or evening before the wedding and usually last for about an hour. The minister and church wedding coordinator will meet with you to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

The Ceremony

We want your wedding to be what you want it to be, and to that end, our minister will work with you to design a ceremony that meets your desires. You are welcome to use traditional or self-written vows, include Holy Communion, candles, etc. This is your special day and everything possible will be done to ensure that the ceremony reflects the two people being joined.


We are happy to offer our refurbished organ and organist for those who want to use them.

Flowers and Decorations

Park Avenue’s ornate sanctuary provides an ideal backdrop for a traditional church wedding. You are encouraged to make floral arrangements prior to your rehearsal and to communicate with the church office about the details of delivery.

The minister and church coordinator will review all these details prior to the wedding.

My husband and I where looking for a beautiful location for a simple and intimate wedding  — we got that and so much more at Park Avenue United Methodist Church. Pastor Cathy and the staff were helpful and accommodating, putting my not-so-religious fiancé and the stressed out  bride at ease.  The sanctuary is classically lovely and photographs well. A nicely appointed 3rd floor hall easily transformed into an attractive reception space so that we could celebrate with our family and friends  without changing locations. Park Avenue was the perfect choice for us, Pastor Cathy and the staff truly do have “Open hearts, open minds, open doors.”   -Camille, Married at PAUMC
