Our Tradition

For Modern Couples

Ceremony Information

Open to People of All Backgrounds

Though the church has an active spiritual congregation rooted in the Swedenborgian tradition, the wedding program is non-denominational and open to people of all backgrounds. We welcome same gender couples. Guest officiants are welcome, as are dogs.


The seating capacity of the church sanctuary is 100 guests (in addition to the wedding party, who, as participants in the ceremony, do not need seats). Standing room only weddings will hold 120. The size and intimacy of our church makes it suitable for smaller weddings.

We allow for two-and-a-half hours per wedding. For example, if you have a 2 o’clock wedding, you have use of the church and gardens from 1:00 to 3:30. More time can be booked if necessary.

Wedding Reservations

In order to make a reservation, please first contact the event manager by emailing events@sfswedenborgian.org to make sure your preferred date is available.

Once you have decided on the date and time with the event manager, please send the following:

  • 50% NON-REFUNDABLE deposit plus a security deposit. The remaining wedding fee is due one month prior to the wedding and the whole amount is non-refundable if you cancel within the 30 day period before the event (we accept check or credit card, but there is a processing fee for credit card payments).
  • Completed Wedding Reservation Form below (and the Reception Contract if you are having your reception at the Parish House)

Once we have received the above, we will send out a confirmation letter and get started on your wedding!


$2,700 for a weekend wedding (Fri – Sun, and holidays): Use of the sanctuary, garden, two dressing rooms, and a venue coordinator for 2.5 hours.

$2,200 for a weekday wedding (Mon – Thu): Use of the sanctuary, garden, two dressing rooms, and a venue coordinator for 2.5 hours.

There is a $250 refundable security deposit due upon booking in addition to half the cost of the wedding. The security deposit is refundable after your event as long as there is no damage to the property or additional cleaning necessary. Should you like to add a reception, the security deposit will increase to $500.

You may bring your own officiant and musicians at no additional cost. If you would like to use an officiant or musician provided by the church, there is a separate fee set by the individual. Please inquire.
