sanctuary

 

                         Congratulations on                       your upcoming wedding!

Please note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot make wedding reservations at this time. Once we have started gathering in person indoors, we will then consider how best to provide for weddings in a way that is sustainable and safe.

Even then, we know that there will likely be restrictions and regulations that will dictate how large of a group will be able to gather, or whether we will be able to accommodate any other wedding needs for some time.

 

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 our members’ weddings.

 

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.

To initiate reserving the sanctuary, please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Reserve Your Wedding Date

Please contact our Wedding Coordinator for church availability and pricing.

Step 2: Meet with the Wedding Coordinator

As your hostess, the Wedding Coordinator will serve as a resource for your wedding. You will be given a tour of the sanctuary and available rooms. She can answer any questions you may have concerning church procedures, protocol, and wedding etiquette. She will help you coordinate your planning and organize the rehearsal so you can be assured nothing will be forgotten and everything will run smoothly the day of the service. The Wedding Coordinator will be in attendance at the rehearsal and wedding ceremony held at the church.

Please note: All weddings held on the PCLG campus will be done in association with one of PCLG’s pastors. No deposits or promises are to be made until there has been a meeting with a Pastor.

Step 3: Send Deposit and Form

After meeting with the Wedding Coordinator, you will submit a reservation form, along with a deposit. You will receive confirmation very quickly to secure your wedding date.

Step 4: Coordinate with Organist

The Wedding Coordinator will arrange booking of one of the three staff organists (if available). All soloists and instrumentalists must be coordinated through the Wedding Coordinator. Music selections will be coordinated between the couple and the organist.

The rehearsal date is usually the day before the wedding. The rehearsal time will be at 5:00 p.m. unless scheduled differently with the Wedding Coordinator. The church will be available two hours before the wedding service and one hour following the service. We look forward to assisting you in planning your wedding!PCLG_Logo_3LinesClipped
