sanctuary

 

                         Congratulations on                       your upcoming wedding!

Weddings celebrate a covenant in which couples are called to live out together their lives of discipleship before God. In a Christian marriage ceremony, a lifelong commitment is made, publicly witnessed and acknowledged by the community of faith. The Presbyterian Church of Los Gatos is delighted you are considering our church for your wedding ceremony. We consider it a privilege to use our sanctuary for weddings, including Christian ceremonies for non-members.

 

The PCLG sanctuary is a beautiful place of worship. The soaring wood-paneled ceiling and spectacular stained glass windows are impressive. This reverent ambiance makes your wedding feel intimate and personal. The sanctuary pews can accommodate both small and large weddings—up to 450 seated guests.

Our Möller pipe organ was installed in 1958, and was extensively renovated in 2005. The sound is dramatic, and adds a tremendous depth to your music selections. If scheduling permits, one of our talented staff organists can be available for the ceremony.

The church is equipped with a digital sound system, complete with earpiece, handheld, and standing wireless microphones. Our Wedding Coordinator will help you determine what is necessary.
