Weddings at the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville
Ceremonies are conducted by the clergy on staff.
SCHEDULING A WEDDING
Before a wedding date can be reserved on the church calendar, please contact the Pastor whom you wish to perform the service to make an initial appointment. He or she will set up counseling times and guide in the planning of the wedding service as a whole. Once you’ve made an initial appointment with one of the Pastors and he or she has indicated availability, please contact the church office separately to see if the date and time you are requesting is available, and to get your wedding on our calendar.
The couple should then contact the church organist to insure his availability for the service. Our organist is an invaluable resource when it comes to selecting music appropriate for the wedding service.
THE WEDDING REHEARSAL
The wedding rehearsal will be directed by the Pastor (the organist will not be present). Those expected to attend the rehearsal are the bride and groom, their attendants including flower girls and ring bearers, ushers, parents and any grandparents who will be escorted down the aisle. The rehearsal time is ordinarily an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the number of attendants.
All payments should be received in the church office no later than a week before the wedding. Checks for the Pastor and the organist should be made out directly to them. Checks for the custodial fee and the use of the building should be made out to the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville.

Wedding guests are asked to refrain from taking photographs during the service.
