First Unitarian Church, San Jose – Featured Gay Friendly Wedding Venue

Friday, April 1st, 2016

First Unitarian Church - San Jose

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding:

The wedding experience at San Jose’s First Unitarian Church begins in our 121 year old Sanctuary where rows of wooden seats are arranged in a semicircle on both the main floor and the mezzanine. They face a stained-glass panel that flanks the graceful, triple-arched chancel.
Your wedding guests can gather in the Fireside Room for cocktails. At dinnertime, just swing open the French doors into Hattie Porter Hall, a spacious, high-ceiling dinner and dancing area.

For many couples, the dream starts with a big church wedding, preferably a place with lots of charm, a sense of history and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Well, dreams can come true, because the First Unitarian Church of San Jose is gay friendly, and offers all that and more, welcoming gay and lesbian couples tom get married in this beautiful, sacred space.

Built in 1891 and recently restored to its former glory, the venue’s Romanesque Revival architecture incorporates graceful domes, arched entryways, a sun-kissed stucco facade and some of the most beautiful stained-glass windows you’re likely to find anywhere.

Perhaps equally important, the church, with its long tradition of community outreach and social equality, welcomes all couples – regardless of religious affiliation or sexual orientation – to celebrate their union in its unique circular sanctuary.

As an added bonus, before and after the ceremony, members of the wedding party can retreat to the upstairs lounge to change clothes or to just relax.

Our Complete Wedding Experience Package includes:

  • Two hours of pre-planning and eight hours for rehearsal, decorating, the event and cleanup.
  • Your choice of rectangular tables for 135 guests or round tables for 88 guests.
  • Use of two kitchens to warm and assemble prepared food with access to an elevator to bring items from the main kitchen to the reception hall
  • Use of the upstairs lounge
  • Use of the Fireside Room for cocktails or for use as a buffet.
  • Validated parking in the Third and Fourth Street Garages.
  • If you’re looking for a church setting to marry your partner, please give us a call – we would love to work with you to create the perfect wedding day.

South Church, Mount Prospect, Illinois – Featured Gay Friendly Wedding Venue

Saturday, March 26th, 2016

South Church

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

The South Church welcomes you and invites you to celebrate your union in our beautiful sanctuary in Mount Prospect, just outside of Chicago.
Built in 1937, our church building captures an air of the traditional as well as the modern. Its white frame structure is patterned on a colonial design that sets it off from most other churches in the area.

New stained glass windows were installed in the 1990s. The windows’ modern designs allow a great deal of natural light into our air-conditioned sanctuary while depicting important scenes from the history of the faith. Our front doors open onto a wide staircase that spills onto the lawn, providing a perfect setting for your guests to congratulate you after your ceremony, and for keepsake photos to be taken.

Set in a lovely residential neighborhood in Mount Prospect, Illinois, The South Church has ample parking for you and your guests. This northwest suburban location is about 20 miles from Chicago, easily accessed by major highways and only a few blocks from the Metra Station.

Our location places The South Church near many restaurants and banquet halls, and our wedding package includes the services of the pastor, the music director/organist, and our wedding coordinator.

The church and surrounding grounds provide such a lovely backdrop for wedding pictures that many photographers include photos taken at The South Church in their portfolios.

When you are married at The South Church we place a congratulatory message featuring your names on the church sign, which also makes for a memorable picture.

Since its inception The South Church has served the needs of people from many different faith traditions. We are a church that encourages our members and friends to explore their questions and to construct a faith that is meaningful to them.

We take pride in our mission work, which serves mainly local needs. We offer an ongoing class in World Religions, believing that God has spoken in many different ways throughout human history.

For years The South Church has supported equal rights for gay men and lesbian women, and both the current and previous pastors have performed civil unions. We look forward to the day when marriage will be legal in our state, and in our country.

We hope you consider having your wedding at The South Church. If you are looking for a church setting with a very gay friendly staff, please give us a call.
