Weddings

St. Paul’s is a beautiful place to get married

We hold large weddings in our Church, smaller weddings in our Chapel. We also hold weddings outside in our Courtyard. Most important to us, of course, is the marriage.

Who May Be Married Here

Christian marriage is a covenantal relationship in which husband and wife enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows. 

In the Episcopal Church it is required that at least one of the parties be a baptized Christian, that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses, and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State of Ohio and the canons (laws) of this Church. Pre-marital counseling is a requirement, and should begin no less than six months before the wedding.

To be married at St. Paul’s, one of the parties should be an active member of the congregation, or in the process of joining or actively considering the same by regular attendance. Children of members may also be married at St. Paul’s. 

For those who are not involved in a church, St. Paul’s is not a wedding chapel for rent, so we encourage engaged couples to think about joining.  There are several ways to explore how and why to be a member of our broad and dynamic congregation. Attending Sunday services is the way to start.

Please contact the church office to start the process of planning.
